  1. I'm not as experienced with the application process as some others on this forum, but as someone who is looking to apply in an application cycle or two, I have done a tremendous amount of research on the subject. So take what I say with a grain of salt. Here is what I found that pertains to your current situation. 1. In general, the higher ranked the department, the more variety of specialists in particular sub fields you will encounter. For example, my research interests are in a particular sub, sub field of new institutionalism. In my research, I've discovered that Stanford, Harvard

  2. I'm in my last year of a counseling psych program (on internship), and my experience has been that the counseling psych students' research interests are (broadly) more focused on career and multicultural/social justice issues. By comparison, the clinical psych students I've taken classes with tend to be much more focused on psychopathology (as kita mentioned) and neuropsych. That being said, both concentrations are required to take neuropsych and a subset of other core classes. With regard to internship, counseling psych students have traditionally skewed more toward university counseling cent

  3. Hey guys! I'm just finishing up my 1st year of grad school. I love my program and school but my cohort...not so much. I have a fairly large cohort (15-20 people). Most of us came straight out of undergrad. However, we're a fairly diverse group (some are married, some live alone-like myself, some come from different parts of the country, etc.) And while I've made some good friends in my program, I feel a certain hostility from others that I'm not so close to and I can't understand it. All of us take the same classes every semester so we're together quite often. I enjoy our classes and the w

  4. This strategy helped me survive a 20 hour a week GA ship; working 16 hours a week; full-time grad classes, and an additional part-time teaching job while I was a commuter from 90-120 minutes away from the school. So, not in SLP, this may help a bit. 1. Write out your self-care needs. It may feel weird to have this prioritized as number 1, but that’s the only way to stay healthy enough and focus long enough to make it through grad school. What are things you need to feel energized and healthy? Do you need interaction, sleep, working out, etc.? Make a plan that includes all the necessary it

  5. I'm thoroughly enjoying grad school, but that's because I'm a non-traditional older student. The motivation and dedication I have now didn't exist when I was an undergrad or even during my first master's program a long time ago. My interest is at such a high level that I'm applying to PhD programs for next year. Did you recently graduate from college? If so, maybe it's academic burnout. If not, I assume you must have had some interest in grad school if you applied. What reasons are causing anxiety at the start of the semester? Is one of them imposter syndrome? Flip your thinking a

  6. This is a point worth emphasizing, since you come so close to grasping it, only to slide off: McC was indeed Conant's adviser (and at least a committee member for Harper, IIRC), and thus has the expertise to advise those wishing to go in similar directions. But McC has also recently advised dissertations on crowds in Merovingian Gaul and the intellectual influence of 9th century bishops. And he has not, as far as I can recall, advised a single dissertation on climate science. Put more broadly, don't worry too much about finding an adviser that's doing exactly what you want to do. Look fo

  7. I also stand by decision, even if it "disturbes" you. It shouldn't because you don't know me, it doesn't concern you, and you have no idea how I intend to pay for college or what funds I have.

  8. Well, I didn't receive scores per se... I knew when I finished the essay for Rangel that it wasn't my best work. I didn't prepare that much for the writing part because I was over-confident in my writing skills (fairly strong), and I didn't anticipate the range of issues with which we would be presented. The questions were more broad than the Pickering, and I struggled to make a coherent argument. So I know that it was the writing part that brought me down. I over-prepared for the interview, and I know it went well... I felt a good chemistry with the panel and I let them know just how much I
