BGSP Stories of Impact
“Here, they see you as a person, not a test score. The admissions process at BGSP gives you a good feel for what the school is like. Rather than asking you to submit a GRE score, they ask you to come interview with three faculty members. Even before I was admitted, the professors genuinely wanted to know me as a person.”Ranjana Mayar, Master’s in Mental Health Counseling Graduate, 2019
