Marriage Family Therapy (MFT) programs in California?
Hello! I am an undergraduate Psychology student in my last year of undergrad. I will be applying to in-state graduate schools this fall, but I worry about how competitive MFT programs are. As a first generation student, I’m worried that my experiences are not good enough. The only relevant experience I have is interning abroad with a social worker conducting therapy in a vulnerable population, being a peer resource mentor for psychology students on campus, and peer mentor for students with diverse cultural backgrounds (with emphasis on mental health and well-being). I have a 3.7 GPA and want to apply to CSU MFT programs. I don’t have a lot of time to devote to other extra curricular at the moment as I am currently holding two jobs as a peer mentor. What was your experience like applying to MFT programs? What were your stats? Did you take a gap year (if so, what was it like)? What programs would you recommend? How was your MFT program? Where are you now? I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions! I want to a bit more prepared, so thank you for helping me out :) #MFT #marriagefamilytherapy #marriagefamilytherapist #LMFT #psycchology #psychologygrad #psychgrad #psychgraduate #psychgraduates #psychologygraduate #psychologygraduates #psychstudent #psychologystudent #psychstudents #psychcologystudents #gradschool #graduateschool #applyingtogradschool #counseling #therapy #familytherapy #csu #csun #sfsu #csus #csulb #csuf #csudh #usf #pepperdine #therapist #therapists
