Preparing Your Application Essay

Your application includes a statement of three to five pages clarifying your expectations from graduate work. This essay should be typed and double-spaced and submitted via a Word or PDF document through the online application. You should address the following prompts:

  • Why is Rollins’ Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling program a good fit for you and your career goals?
  • How would people who know you well describe your interpersonal style? Please be specific.
  • Rollins’ Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling program and the American Counseling Association (ACA) are known for valuing diversity and social justice for oppressed groups. How will you begin the process of reflecting on and addressing any personal attitudes, beliefs, assumptions, or feelings that may prevent you from working with a client or a colleague holding an identity or a social status different than your own?
