Advanced standing still apply?
Great question, Tracy. Advanced standing applicants can apply later this year for a Fall 2023 start.
I love that you can do practicum at your current place. I want to do this specifically to be a therapist at my current agency.
That's fantastic, Phoenix!
If you have any questions for Julie, Pam, Alison, or I who all teach within the mental health concentration, feel free to throw them in the chat. Or we hope we can answer any questions about mental health social work practice.
Just to confirm- will a full recording of this session but emailed out??
Our librarians are extremely helpful:)
Lisa, it will be on the Brown School's YouTube channel, and I would be happy to send you a link! Feel free to email me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org

So sorry for the technical difficulties. I will be here for questions after the presentation
Academic advisors makes sure you have all the classes you need to graduate. Faculty advisors help to advise you on your career and potential selection of elective courses based on your career goals/trajectory. Field advisors work directly with you to explore your practicum experience (foundation and concentration). As the mental health concentration chair, I am always available for advising:)
Thanks Sarah! Just sent you an email! I am so sorry everyone but I need to log off. Thank you so so much for this information!!
Great to have you Lisa!
Is your GPA the main consideration within the application? My undergrad GPA was …not great.
^no- all applicants are reviewed from a holistic perspectives. Every applicant has a story- a GPA isn't the whole story.
That’s good to know.
Many of us weren't our best selves during undergrad. We understand that we have unique factors that drive that narrowed outcome of GPA. Tell us your story:)
My email is email@example.com if there are any questions

If you have additional questions for field education you can send email to OFE@wustl.edu
If accepted into the program, how many nights a week could I expect to be on campus?
Oh that’s helpful.
Do you tend to have a lot of older students?
Ages range from 23 - 65! Average is 24, but we anticipate folks in the part-time program will be older adults.
That is good to know
Thank you all for doing this! I’m feeling like this is a real possibility for me.
Please reach out if you have any more questions!
