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!
delineation posted a topic in PsychologyHi everyone! I've been quietly scouring this site for the last couple years, actually, and now that I've officially applied for the Fall 2017 cycle, I figured I'd start this thread up! Especially since I haven't seen a similar thread for this cycle yet. I applied to 7 Ph.D. programs: - Boston College - NYU - Penn State - Rutgers - UChicago - University of Maryland - USC ... And 1 Master's program (the concentration was in an area my research interests are related to) at Teacher's College. Feel free to divulge whatever details you'd like to share here! And once interview rounds start approaching and decisions start pouring in, questions and other related things are more than welcome!
Someone created this last year and I thought it was a great idea to get different perspectives and see how others were coping with their rejections! I think it will be good for us to start one this year, and begin to decompress/start thinking of plan B (or C, or D, E.. etc) after rejections come trickling in. Use the following template if it helps! School: Area/Degree: Rationalization: Comment: Coping tactics:
Hello! I was wondering if anyone here has applied to/heard back from the Psychology department at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. I visited back in October and was told that their "graduate applicant day" is usually held at the end of January. Here we are in the middle of January and I have not yet received an invite (nor have I seen any posts about Brock). Getting nervous!
Is anyone else applying to developmental psych programs this year? If so, what schools? I've applied only to Canadian schools: UofT, SFU, UBC, and McGill. I'm getting a little nervous because I know Canadian schools are notorious for being slow - I'm hoping I don't have to wait until June to find out.
Hi all, I applied to 5 schools: --University of Oregon (Developmental Psychology PhD) --University of Virginia (Developmental Psychology PhD) --University of Hawaii at Manoa (Social Psychology PhD) --Simon Fraser University (Social/Developmental Psychology PhD) --UC Davis (Social Psychology PhD) I'm wondering, has anyone heard back from these schools yet? I'm very nervous, and I've been stressing for a bit now. I'm also a little scared of my GRE score, which I've seen a lot about here. I do have a good GPA, have 5 years of research experience, had a GTF and GRF position at my current institution, worked at a local non-profit research firm, and have a Master's that will be completed in March of this year. Do you think my chances are good? Thanks everyone for listening!
