    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Maryland (College Park, MD) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interview for School Counseling program consisted of a full day including an equity small group discussion, Q&A, small group interview, and writing sample. Gives very good information about the program itself. Small group interview was interesting in that it only consisted of the interviewer asking questions one at a time and going around to speak. I would recommend making sure you look like a team player in the small group interview, rather than just talking to get a word in. Personally, I made sure to comment on others' contributions as well.
