I dont know if you will see this but I stumbled upon this post ..... I applied to the same program for the May 2015 cohort. I was hoping you could let me know how the program is going? Are you happy with your choice of Brockport? I applied to University of Rochesters program and was accepted (YAY), I am waiting on Brockport decision... but if they accept me I am unsure what program to enroll in. Since Brockports program is so new there isnt much feedback on it. Are there any clinical placements at Strong or Highland? I ask because that ultimately where i want to work since I plan on returning to school to get an NP degree & strong does tuition reimbursement. Is the schedule basically all day everyday? Do you feel the professors adaquately prepare you for the tests, clinicals, boards?
Any info you have would be GREAT! I am struggling to find anything
Brockport is a fraction of UR's cost, UR is about 60K per year! My stats are
1) I received a Brockport bachelors degree (so I think thats a plus)
2) My undergrad GPA was a 3.0 but I also have a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling & that GPA is 3.85
3) All A's in the science pre-reqs
4) I dont have much volunteer experience other than my Masters internships at mental health facilities and I worked at strong for 2 year prior
I'm just really anxious & looking for any words of wisdom where i can get them. Good luck in the program!
