  1. Hi all, So after taking two years off after completing my B.Sc. in Canada, I'm preparing to apply for graduate schools for a clinical psychology doctoral program specializing in neuropsychology. I know these sorts of programs are extremely competitive, so I will likely be applying to 18-20 schools, but thought I would post some of my application credentials and get any advice from anyone willing to give it! Education: B.Sc. with Honor's in Psychology, Minor in Biology. Completed an Honor's Thesis in my final year in cognitive neuroscience. GPA: Overall: 3.3 (first 2 years of B.Sc. were as a Biomedical Science major, which I did not enjoy, and my GPA reflects this). Major GPA: 3.8 Last 2 years/60 credits: 3.8 GRE Scores: Psychology Subject GRE: 750 (91st percentile) General GRE (taking this in the next few weeks, likely will be around 156V/160Q/5.0AW) LOR: 2 clinical neuropsychologists (Honor's thesis supervisor and current work supervisor; both on admissions committees for CN programs at 2 different schools), 1 supervisor who is also a clinical psychologist (supervisor from Developmental Psychology lab mentioned below) Experience: 4 poster presentations Honor's thesis (supervised by a clinical neuropsychologist, see LOR above) and Independent Research Project (supervised by Neuroscientist) Volunteered at 2 hospitals, 3 different research labs in my last 2 years of undergraduate studies Moved from Toronto, Canada to San Diego, California after graduating with my B.Sc. to work as a Lab Manager in a Developmental Psychology lab and then as a Research Coordinator in a Neuropsychology lab (multi-site project; still currently here - see LOR above). I guess I am worried that my GRE scores will make my applications less competitive. I feel as though my applications are well-rounded elsewhere and my time off and additional experience has helped me. I do not have any location preferences and will be applying all throughout North America. Any and all advice or insight is welcome! Also, please don't hesitate to mention any schools that you guys know of which are very reputable for CN! Some on my radar include: SDSU/UCSD Joint Doctoral Program, Drexel, Boston University, Northwestern University (Feinberg), University of Florida, University of Houston, University of Wisconsin... Thank you!!
  2. Sorry if there is already another thread on this, but I wanted to ask: Can you do a counseling psychology PhD degree and specialize in neuropsychology? Also what are the main differences between counseling and clinical psychology PhD programs, and how does this affect the process of getting into internship, post-doc and getting licensure? Is there a difference in what you are qualified to do in your career?
  3. Hi there, I am new, and I apologize in advance for breaking any conventions in bloggery/forum posts, etc. I applied to two PhD programs in Clinical Psychology, both of which are very competitive. I am in an awkward position- one part of me "feels" I have what it takes to be an outstanding Clinical Scientist. The other side of me is discouraged. I do not have a great GPA nor GRE scores to make up for it-- so I decided upon submitting my applications that I probably will not hear back. ... And indeed, I have not. Profile: GPA: 3.29 (Institution within the Top 10 - US National University Ranking) Dean’s List: Fall 2011, Spring 2013 GRE: Q/V/W : 152/158/4.0 3 excellent letters of recommendation (including 1 from a PI I applied to work with) 6 research posters 1 first author & oral presentation at a leading scientific conference in the field of behavioral medicine 1 publication in a leading Obesity journal 5 years research experience combined (undergraduate + post-baccalaureate) B.A. Psychology, Biological Bases of Behavior (concentration) Spanish (minor) Fluent in 3 languages, 2 graduate-level classes -1 Undergraduate honors Thesis (I was overzealous in this project as an undergraduate student-- I took on too much and was sleep deprived during my last semester- Alas, the project was not where it needed to be in order to defend it. I am now working on an update of this project with my former mentor, and we plan to publish!) Very brief description of interests: I want to go to grad school so I can conduct interdisciplinary research and obtain clinical experience in the fields of stress/depression, eating disorders, obesity, addiction, and related psychopathology. I am so eager to contribute to the academic community and can see myself teaching, generating and disseminating clinical science, while gaining clinical skills and learning advanced statistical techniques for identifying predictors of treatment efficacy and multi-factorial processes through which complex conditions can worsen or improve. I am currently working at the Medical Center /Department of Psychiatry of my undergraduate institution, in a slightly different field than my undergraduate pursuits. I continue to be engaged in scientific inquiry, and I just know that this is the field I want to be in. when I look at my profile, I just cannot see how any admissions committee would even pick up the application. I emailed 2 PI's at each institution that I applied to, and I heard back from each when I first wrote them. They have not written back, and I am truly embarrassed that my PI recommended me and I wasn't even considered for an interview. (It looks like all invitations have been extended in both institutions). Any advice, encouragement, perspective, or opinions on my situation would be greatly appreciated. I think that my wonderful and over-sharing coworkers have heard enough of me, and so has my partner. Should I give up? Is it ridiculous for me to think that I have a chance? I just want to go to grad school and work with a mentor that is happy to have me and work with me. That's what I had in undergrad and I wish I could just extend that to gradschool. Sorry. I had to vent. the waiting game is eating me up. I welcome your thoughts/ideas -- please do not hesitate to be straight forward and honest. ps: I might add that I took a Medical Leave of Absence due to psychological/medical reasons in the middle of my undergraduate career. I returned after 1 year of treatment and was successful; I was asked to become a student ambassador for the Office of Student Returns, which was pretty sweet. In my applications I had to explain (NOT in my SOP, but in a separate document) what happened, and I did it in a brief, earnest and mature way. I can explain in more detail if needed.
  4. Hello! I currently have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Speech-Language Pathology. I earned my bachelor's degree in the Spring of 2016. Although I have a pretty extensive background in research methods/statistics courses, I wasn't able to obtain any actual research experience during my time as an undergraduate. I have decided that I would like to go to graduate school for a Ph.D in clinical psychology. I've found some psychology research labs at my alma mater that I am in the process of applying to. I would be volunteering in these labs as a post-baccalaureate research assistant for two semesters. These labs are researching topics that I am interested in. How long does a potential applicant conduct research before applying for graduate school in the field of clinical psychology? How much research experience should a potential applicant have? Thanks for your responses.
  5. Currently, I'm a Junior at Texas A&M-Commerce, and will be applying for graduate school in December 2018. I'm a psychology major with an overall GPA of 3.9 and a major GPA of 4.0, with experience in independent study, research, and data analysis. I expect to graduate summa cum laude and receive good letters of recommendation from the professors with whom I've conducted research. However, I doubt that I will be able to achieve a high or even average score on the GRE. On all of the practice tests I've taken so far, I've done well in the verbal and written areas (156-160 on the verbal, and 5.0 on the written), but I've performed poorly on all the quantitative sections, receiving scores that ranged from 120-110. I know that with time and practice, I can improve my quantitative scores, but I am still unsure about my chances of getting into UT Southwestern's Clinical Psychology PhD program. Do any of you think that I could have a chance of getting an interview, or do you think I have better chances applying elsewhere?
  6. Hi. I'm planning to apply to clinical psychology PhD programs soon for Fall 2018 and I've decided to start on my personal statements. However, UC Berkeley's prompt (or rather multiple prompts) has me confused. On the psychology department's Application Instructions page and Berkeley's general Writing a Personal Statement page, it says to write a personal statement about... How you have overcome barriers to access in higher education. Evidence of how you have come to understand the barriers faced by others. Evidence of your academic service to advance equitable access to higher education for women, racial minorities, and individuals from other groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education. Evidence of your research focusing on underserved populations or related issues of inequality. Evidence of your leadership among underserved populations. However, the psychology department also has the FAQ - General Admissions page, which says... The personal history statement should discuss how your personal background influences your decision to pursue a graduate degree in psychology. For example, please include information on how you have overcome barriers; evidence of your academic service to advance equitable access to higher education for women, racial minorities, and individuals from other groups that have been historically under represented in higher education; evidence of your research focusing on underserved populations or related issues of inequality, or evidence of your leadership among such groups. Some questions to consider are: What hardships have you overcome? What have been your successes? What obstacles came up? Show how you persevered. How did you become interested in psychology? Were you in some way different from the majority of students in your class? Was your family supportive in your decision to choose psychology as a career field? Were you influenced by your parents’ education and career? Were you in a single parent family? Was much of your time spent taking care of your siblings? Did you work while going to school? Is psychology a common career field for people of your cultural background? Question 1: Which prompt do I write about? I will admit that I am a white, privileged person whose life has been financially stable. I have ideas about what I would write about if I chose the first prompt (working in a hospital + growing up in a racially diverse area), but they will pale in comparison with the statements of other applicants who have essays that are closer to home. I feel like I could write a better essay if I chose the second prompt (enduring and overcoming the consequences of a natural disaster), but I feel like that's a cop-out. I know Berkeley wants diverse applicants and I shouldn't beat around the bush. Also, when they say "What hardships have you overcome?", do they mean hardships exclusively concerning diversity/underrepresented groups, or would it be inappropriate to write about a natural disaster? Question 2: Where do I put my interest in psychology: the PS or the SoP? If you look at the FAQ - General Admissions page, it says to answer "What sparked your interest in psychology?" in your Statement of Purpose and to answer "How did you become interested in psychology?" I have a good story to tell about how I got interested in psychology, but I don't want to repeat myself. Do I answer in both statements? Maybe give a more lengthy answer in my SoP and briefly mention it in my PS? Can I assume that the AdComm will read one statement before the other so I could treat the two statements like two pieces of a longer work? Thank you for getting this far and reading my wall of text

  8. Help! I have been accepted to both Teachers College Columbia (MA in Psychology in Education) and King's College London (MSc in Forensic Mental Health) and I have to decide which one to accept in the next few days. I'm Canadian, and will be attending either school as an international student. I have a small scholarship from TC and no funding offer from KCL yet. The two schools seem extremely comparable, unless I'm missing something - both schools are very expensive, and I'd be taking out a large loan either way. Both seem to have decent reputations in their native countries. Both are one-year programs. My goal is to get a PhD in Clinical Psychology, preferably in my native Canada or in the United States, and licence/practice in Canada. I've spent the last two years working as a youth worker at an inner city high school, and I'm interested in working in the same vein, in forensic psychology, or just generally working with marginalized populations, but I'm not quite sure of my exact career goals yet. I graduated in 2015 with an Honours BA in Psychology from a decent Canadian school (U of A) with a 3.7 GPA. I was rejected by every Canadian PhD program I applied to (ouch), and I'm looking to take a master's program to strengthen my application to those PhD programs. I just don't know which school to pick. So here's my thinking: King's seems to have a really solid reputation in England, forensic mental health is very relevant to my career goals and their program offers/requires a 75-day practicum at a prison or hospital. But I'm worried that a British school won't carry much weight when applying to a Canadian PhD programs, and I have no plans to work in Britain. The program is also very rigid with its course schedule, and doesn't seem to offer much opportunity to get involved in research. On the other hand, I think TC might carry a little more weight when applying within Canada or the USA, and the program seems to have opportunities for more research/field experience if you're proactive. They also offer a concentration in marginalized populations that seems really relevant to my career goals, and there's more flexibility in courses you can take. On a personal level, I'd rather live in NYC than London. But on the other hand, I've heard mixed things about TC; I know two people who went there (one for education, one for psychology) who both give it absolutely glowing reviews and are very successful in their careers, but I've also seen online reviews that say it's a diploma mill that isn't taken seriously, and that has me worried. I've been leaning toward TC, but online reviews have me worried. Is KCL more of a "real school" than TC? Is one of them going to strengthen my application more? Is there an obvious choice here? I don't have long to make my final decision, and I'm freaking out.
  9. Trying to get connected with any other BGSU Fall 2017 clinical psych cohort members (:
  10. Trying to get connected with other BGSU newly admitted clinical psychology students! If a list of names was sent out, I certainly missed it sooooo. Is anyone out there?
  11. Hi, I'm interested in applying this December for a PhD Clinical Psychology program for Fall 2018. I have a few questions regarding how to know what schools to apply to and determining what schools are schools I would be able to get into. My background: Behavioral Neuroscience major and computer science minor at Northeastern University graduating in May 2018, 3.5 overall GPA, 3.67 behavioral neuroscience GPA, and 3.75 Psychology GPA. I have 4 publications (first author of 2, one pertaining to autism research). I have done 2 six month coops working 40 hr/week in a Newborn Medicine Lab at Boston Children's Hospital and in a Pharmacology and Physiology Lab at The George Washington University, researching autism at both labs. I will be doing another six month coop at the Yale Early Social Cognition Lab at Yale University, doing research on with kids with autism. I am specifically interested in autism (as seen by my background), yet at a lot of schools there aren't professors in the clinical psychology program doing autism research. I'm wondering if its absolutely necessary that I do my PhD with a professor doing autism research? Or should I only be applying to programs with professors doing autism research? Also based on my research background/gpa, how can I figure out what schools to apply to? A lot of schools don't put gpa info on their websites it seems (and I understand because its a holistic process), but how can I know where I am in the range of applying to? Thanks!
  12. Hi everyone! I am a Canadian student interested in applying to Clinical Psychology graduate schools in the States and have a few questions about the process and schools. Any help would be greatly appreciated 1. I read that each school provides different levels of funding for their students. Is this funding generally for U.S. citizens? Or does it vary by school? Does anyone know any schools that provide good funding for international students? 2. Is there a big difference between PhD programs in private universities vs. non-private? Is one better than the other or are they generally the same? 3. There are so many APA-accredited schools, any advice on how to narrow the selection down? Other than location and faculty accepting students. 4. How much weight do schools put on the GRE? I have a really strong background in research with a few publications in the works as well as a strong GPA. However, my GRE scores are not that great (155V, 155Q, 5W) - will this significantly lower my chances? Any other advice would be great! Thanks, S.
  13. I figured I would start this thread off for Canadian clinical psychology applicants for Fall 2017. There was a good thread going last year that I think helped a lot of people out. Might as well get it started before the applications are due! Good luck to everyone this year!
  14. Hi everyone! I'm fairly new to the Grad Cafe, and am looking into a doctoral program in Clinical Psychology (to start in Fall 2018), specializing in the field of neuropsychology. I am Canadian, but will be applying to schools all throughout North America. I don't know much about schools with this program in the United States, and was hoping some of you could shed light on some good schools with a great clinical neuropsych program. What are some of the schools you applied to for a clinical neuropsych program in North America and why?
  15. Due to some serious health issues and need for intensive treatment I may need to choose a plan B program for Fall. I'm trying to decide which Terminal Master's option would provide the best career options. I am interested in flexible work hours, research experience, and work in the medical field. My options are: -Master of Science in Clinical Psychology w/ license as Psychological Associate. -Master of Social Work to become a LCSW or LMSW -Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling to become Licensed Professional Counselor While the MSW would allow me to work in the medical field, I'm not all that interested in Social Work as a career. The Clinical Psychology program would allow me to be a researcher as well as potential doctoral study. The Counseling program has the best job options.
  16. Hi All (first time poster!) I have recently been accepted to a terminal MA in Clinical Psychology (US School). I am interested if anyone knows of the likelihood that I would be able to count the credit hours of this degree towards a PhD in the future, i.e, if any top ClinPsy PhD programs allow you to shave time off your 5/6years because you already have the Masters component. The program isn't fully funded so although it would be great experience and would boost my resume, I'm not sure if it's worth the finances if I can't count any of it towards time off a PhD. Let me know what you think!
  17. Hello! So, I have been making myself crazy the past few days deciding which school to choose for my Master's. Here is the deal. I have narrowed it down to Appalachian State and Illinois State. Illinois State offered me a tuition remission and a small stipend (about $420 a month). Appalachian State offered me in-state tuition and a small stipend (about the same as ISU). I know, it seems obvious, but there are other factors. First, ISU is a Developmental Psychology program. My eventual goal is to go into Clinical Psychology, but I am interested in research that merges Developmental and Clinical. Most graduates go onto Social or Developmental PhD programs, but I imagine just having the degree is all that really matters. The program at ASU is an Experimental Program, but the mentor I was assigned to said that I would just need to work with a Clinical faculty like him. Second, I really prefer ASU's campus. I know I shouldn't care about this, but I just get a better feeling at ASU -- the library is amazing. It's shallow, I know. Illinois isn't a bad campus; it just doesn't feel as comfortable -- the library sort of sucks. So, should I go for the funding or go for what feels better? Thanks!

  19. Hi Guys, I am currently enrolled in a research-based Developmental Psychology Ph.D. program. I will graduate in a year. However, I feel the training that I received is not sufficient for me to secure a good job. I am sure you all know how competitive it is to get a faculty position. Honestly, through my 5 years' experiences (including my M.A.) of conducting research with children, I realize I enjoy doing practical work than doing research. I don't want to drop out from my current program because it will be unethical and upsets my supervisor. So, I am thinking of pursuing another Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I know it's going to be at least 4 more years of schooling, but at least it will lead me to a stable job and decent income. Also, I was planning to postdoc after I graduate which will take me at least two years. So, I thought I might as well just be realistic and spend a few more years doing another Ph.D. that is more practical! I just hope those who are in the progress of completing your doctoral program in Clinical Psychology could give some advice such as the course load and supervisor's expectation. Thank you in advance! Joy

  21. Hello to everyone who has been biting their nails to the nub for the past several months waiting for MARCH 15. (Almost all of my schools had a deadline of January 15 with a notification date by March 15. I have applied to several schools: UNC Chapel Hill, William & Mary, Columbia, Univeristy of Florida, and Tufts for their either PhD or EdS programs for School Psychology. I would be happy with admittances at any of these schools, but I would say my top choices would be W/M, Chapel Hill, and Columbia. I know these schools agonize over the many-great applications, but it is just HARD. As of yet I have heard NOTHING. I know this is common among all of us, but boy, this is SO stressful. I feel like I've been wishing my life away since November, lol. Dreaming I would wake up on March 15 and this would all be over. Only thing is: Will it REALLY be over on March 15? I have a horror that it will come and go and still nothing. Anyone else in the same boat?
  22. Hi everyone! i have some questions for those of you that have applied more than once to clinical psychology PhD programs and have gotten in: 1) What did you do differently? 2) If you contacted the school to ask about what areas of your application were weak, did you contact the PI or the admissions office? Phone call or email? 3) Do you think that having clinical research experience in many different fields could harm your application? A little bit about my situation... First time applying. Applied to 9 schools, but didn't hear back from any. 3.4 overall GPA, 3.7 major GPA, 158 V 151Q 4.5W GRE, 86th percentile subject GRE. I don't have the money to pursue a master's degree to increase my GPA Research: Have worked as a research assistant for 1 semester in a visual cognition lab (human participants), 2 years in a psychophysiology lab (human participants),1 semester in a neuropsychology lab (human participants), 1 year at a top-ranked hospital (doing unrelated clinical research on digestive diseases) and 1 year at my current job doing systems neuroscience research (animal/translational). In most of the positions, I have been running studies, collecting data, processing data, and I helped out with part of a manuscript that seems like it will never get published . In my current lab, however I have been able to work on projects independently from start to finish! By next year I hope to have a third author publication, a first author publication, and 2 national conference presentations. I'm planning on retaking the GRE and applying to labs with a better fit. Let me know if you have any advice on ways to improve! -Dr. Bubbles
  23. Hi all, Has anyone received an offer to Rowan University's Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program? I've been waitlisted and want to know if people are thinking about attending or denying their offer. Please let me know. I would love to accept if offered admission.
  24. Heya lovely Gradcafe-ers, I was hoping to hear whether people have started to hear back from UNM, post-interview, and/or what current/past students' experiences have been like. Cheers!
  25. this is for clinical psych at a Canadian university... waiting is the worst
