Counselor educators and supervisors are gatekeepers for the profession, a responsibility that begins at graduate admissions. Identifying students with the potential to become effective counselors is the first step in this important role. We need students who are empathic, open, and intentionally therefore, it is crucial that admissions processes reflect those needs. This presentation provides an innovative approach to admissions that can help faculty select the best candidates, and glimpse potential for their professional counselor identities and dispositions, as well as help the candidate know whether this is the right path for them. This presentation provides information on the efficacy of evaluative tools and the predictive value of admissions materials, while incorporating multicultural competence throughout the interview process.
