  1. Hello everyone! I just wanted to start a topic for school counseling/counseling masters applicants, because it seems like there are quite a few of us out there! Plus our process and timelines for applying/getting accepted are a little different - so we can wait together here. Would love to hear what everyone is doing!! Program: School Counseling Schools: WWU, Gonzaga University, EWU Accepted: (0/3) Rejected: (0/3) Interviews: (1/3) Waiting: (2/3)
  2. I got an accept at Alfred for Fall 2012. Could anybody help me out with where to live off campus (in an apt or so). Also Iv heard its a small town so what all do i have to look out for while moving in?
  3. Hi everyone! I wasn't exactly sure whether to file this under Professional Studies or Social Sciences so hopefully it reaches the right people! I was just accepted into a counseling program and am having a bad case of indecision. Technically, I have about a year until I really need to declare this but since I'm trying to get work experience and hate having loose ends, I figured maybe you guys could try to help me now. The programs/careers that I'm stuck between are School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health. On the school's website, they even seem to be selling Mental Health more as they list a bunch of different options for it and only talk about the classes needed for the School Counseling page. Anyway, my issue is that I live in NJ and this is a tough area to get a job in anywhere really and schools tend to be who you know. My boyfriend works for the Board of Ed as a custodian so potential in there but who knows. What's holding me back from deciding besides potential jobs is what the actual work environments are like. My concern with school counseling is that I'll be stuck doing all administrative work and barely get to interact with students other than college admissions and class schedules if I'm working in a high school. I want to actually be able to counsel people and feel like I reached them. Moving on to Mental Health, what is it like to work in this field? How stressful is it?How difficult would it be for me to find a job being my Bachelor's is actually in English? I currently volunteer for a crisis hotline and am trying to get some work experience (though I'm not sure where the best place to go with no experience is) but I know some places may be weary to hire someone who didn't have an undergrad degree in a social science. Sorry for rambling everyone, just trying to figure things out!
  4. I am new to the Social Work field, recently completing my degree in Sociology and work as a secretary. I going all in and doing the online masters program this fall, but not sure which is best. I understand that MSW and MFTs are in demand but lately I've been offered and told about the increase need of School Social Workers. Almost all schools require a credential program to do this work. Any advise or input? One thread I did find on the topic noted that although there is a need, a Masters in School Counseling is not promising since jobs are very limited.
  5. Hello everyone, First time poster. I've recently earned my BS in Psych and was pretty sure on my path after this milestone, but things aren't quite as clear as they were while I was still in school. I want to work in a field where I am most needed, not in terms of position openings but service to the population. I love working with children and my feeling is that I can do the most good within a school, and in all honesty that's where I'd like to work. Teaching isn't quite for me so I've narrowed down my options to a school psychologist, counselor, or social worker. What would be most helpful would be to hear a little from anyone working in any of the fields I mentioned or in a similar one. What does a typical day look like for you? How long have you held the position? Future plans? What are some positives and negatives of the job? What surprised you after working a few months? Paper work is an unavoidable responsibility with any of these occupations, but what I'm looking for is the job that requires me to interact with and help individuals/groups more than anything else.
  6. Hey guys, I was not really sure who else to turn to with this question. Basically, my roommate was very intoxicated and I could not get her home so I pushed her home in a shopping cart. A cop saw and gave us both misdemeanors for larceny. I did not even know this was considered a big crime and I feel like a huge idiot because I am worried this is going to affect my future. I was recently accepted into a school counseling program and they do not yet know about the charge. If I do community service the charge will be dismissed and eventually taken off my record but I know they are going to see it when they do background checks for the internship. I am also worried an elementary school will not want someone with this record working at their site. If anyone has any experience with this or advice I would super grateful. Thanks!
  7. Hi all! I am currently in the process of applying/interviewing for counseling psychology programs with concentrations in school counseling. I have one coming up for Teachers College and was wondering if anyone could share knowledge on these types of interviews! My last was more school/social justice based. I'm not currently studying psychology, and wanted to know if I need to worry about specific psychology questions or any common questions for these interviews!
  8. Has anyone recieved an interview invitation? Interviews are in a week and I havent recieved anything!
  9. The application for the Hopkins School Counseling program was due Feb 1st. Is anyone else applying for this program? Around how long does it take before being invited for an interview? I'm just super anxious!!
