What We Look For

We seek a diverse group of students who will form the next community of practitioners. A high level of academic and clinical aptitude are essential, as is a set of personal characteristics that will enable our students to function creatively and effectively in solving a wide variety of human problems. Each applicant is evaluated on a number of specific criteria, including:

Motivation • Self-awareness • Sensitivity • Creativity • Emotional stability • Maturity •  Preparation and planning for graduate studies • Career potential

Assessment of this potential is made in a variety of ways, including past academic performance, practical experience (if available), personal qualifications, references, and indications of the applicant’s commitment to the profession and the community.
