What We Look For
MSPP seeks 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:
- Emotional stability
- 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.
The mean age of the entering students in the past five years has been 27: 75% women, 25% men, 13% minorities, and 13% foreign born students, and fewer than 1% of students with disabilities.
