Expressing an authentic interest through the written application and personal interview seemed to be enough.
One big positive is that BGSP does not requireOct 16 2015Psychology
One big positive is that BGSP does not require the GRE. With that in mind, they include a variety of backgrounds from their students, ranging from archaeologists, to doctors, writers, and lawyers. They emphasize the study of a wide swath of social, political, and environmental critiques, thinking that a broad depth of knowledge is important in understand the human condition.
I had worked as professional counselor for four yearsAug 18 2014Psychology
I had worked as professional counselor for four years before I entered this school. I think that people who worked/are working with patients/clients can gain greater clinical implications in this school.
The application process looks easy, but I would sayAug 08 2014Psychology
The application process looks easy, but I would say that this is not exactly what it seems to the uninitiated. Since it is hard to tell, before getting to know a student very well, who will be able to develop a therapeutic personality, many people are accepted who may look initially like non-traditional students. Some are coming from entirely different careers. Many are international. I guess I would say that whereas the school seems to take risks in who they admit, they do an amazing job of bringing out the potential of each student. I will say that if it is not hard to get in, it is hard to get out! The research requirement, for example, is very rigorous at the doctoral level..
Deciding to do the doctoral degree here was aJul 23 2014Psychology
Deciding to do the doctoral degree here was a big step because I had to move from out of state. I had to complete an application and go through an interview process which was very positive and a major reason for deciding to attend. I strongly recommend this school if you're serious about self improvement and enhancing your career.
