  1. I've been doing all of this for a few years with varying levels of success (this is my fourth time applying). I have been told that I am a competitive applicant (strong GPA, good GRE scores, excellent research experience), but it seems that the more I do to improve, the worse my outcomes have been. Clinical psych applications are the worst.

  2. You guys over the past two days I've bought a mattress, a sofa, a chest of drawers, a TV, an iron, a vacuum, an entire kitchen accessories (plates, silverware, cooking utensils etc), bedding, and now a car. I don't think I've ever spent so much money at one time in my life! I love my car though I move into my apartment not this coming saturday but the following week so all my stuff is going to be lying around the basement of my airbnb. Oops! It's also my birthday the day after I move into my apartment so I have no idea how that celebration is going to go ahaha.

  3. Hey! You could apply to a school that is a minority serving institution. I know UT El Paso, UT Rio Grande Valley, and TAMU Kingsville are schools you could apply to and have a good chance of getting accepted into. Good luck!

    Well, it's been 2 years since this thread was last posted in, and you resurrected it from the dead, but maybe your info will help someone new!

  5. I never limit the amount I eat, but I do stick to minimally processed plant-based meals, and 95% of my meals are homemade so I know exactly what goes into them. My diet is based around whole grains, vegetables, and legumes; within that, there are endless variations if you have a pantry well-stocked with various staples and seasonings and learn to make some good sauces/dressings, etc. I don't buy much snack food; instead, I eat things like fruit, trail mix, or hummus with pita and veggies between meals. I never get bored or feel deprived because I get full on foods that are nutritious and heart

  6. Meal planning/meal prep. Do it on Sundays. Make enough for a week. If you're a coffee drinker, learn to like black coffee. It's all the creams and sugar additives that will pack on extra pounds when your lifestyle becomes more stressed/sedentary in grad school. Eliminate those calories wherever possible.

  7. Basically, what shadowclaw said on the previous page. Additional tips: If you're looking for at-home workouts, many of which can be done with no equipment, check out fitnessblender.com. Kelli & Daniel have some great workouts, including things like High Intensity Interval Training, Kickboxing, Cardio, and much, much more. The videos are free and they've got advice on how to arrange them into a balanced weekly schedule. I like to do a lot of my trashy TV watching while at the gym. So maybe I watch an episode of "Hell's Kitchen" while on the elliptical or rowing machine or while lifting

  8. So I wasn't the one asked, but have a few crock Indian recipes. I actually chuck them in there the night before, pop the crock in the fridge overnight, and then put it on in the morning. I don't care for Thai much, so can't help on that score! (I don't like coconut which pretty much kills Thai.) On all these I disregard the directions other than ingredients (I do play with those as well) and just chuck it all in raw. I DO however freeze tofu as soon as I buy it and defrost it as needed. It really does alter the texture quite a lot. http://www.yummly.com/recipe/external/Tofu-Keema-All
