  1. A few months ago, I was accepted to an MA program in psychology but as fall is quickly approaching, I feel like I am losing interest in my proposed research area; I never thought I would lose interest in my specific field, but I just don't see myself continuing. I guess I went through a bit of an epiphany and found a new interest that I am passionate about. I have recently looked into transferring to another separate degree program within the same department and school. Is this a good idea? Would it be wise if I dropped an email to the coordinator expressing my interest in the program? Woul
  2. omg I am still waiting... I also need to hear about some sort of funding? Hello?

  3. Hey guys I hope to get some perspective here. So I have applied to some MA and Ph.D. programs in psychology. Go to the school where debt is at least minimized? Renowned prof? Here's my situation: 1) I got accepted to a Ph.D. program in neuropsych even though I applied for social psych (I have a solid neuro track record), but with no funding. However, the Chair of the Department mentioned that some of the current students in the Ph.D. program paid their way for the first year but received assistance (tuition waivers and stipends) after the first year. I am a little hesitant to go here since
  4. I really don't think it matters. It's what you feel comfortable with. I switched to a Mac and it's fairly easy to get used to.
  5. Having a great and supportive advisor makes a huge difference, especially if you plan on doing research in the future. Go for the program that would best develop your talents and interests.
  6. Given your rankings, I'd go with UCONN with the full ride. I agree with Fade, Solid reputation and minimal debt is what you want to aim for.
  7. That comment was hilarious! I saw the post and was absolutely shocked! It was very scathing and unprofessional. Maybe that's why the individual didn't get in...
  8. ETS is a big headache. I can't believe they raised the price to prey on people, especially given the economic situation.
  9. I don't know if there is any flesh to this and it's probably based on hearsay, so don't take my words too seriously. I heard that for some programs, U Wisc.-Madison is notorious for having students fend for themselves in terms of funding. Again, I don't know how truthful this is based on just reading it somewhere on the internet...
  10. I like Fuzzy Logician's idea. Nothing too fancy as it may come off as desperate or trying a little too hard. Getting a bookmark sounds like a perfect idea, it happens to be a gift you picked up along the way but it also shows that it's the thought that counts. In any case, do what you feel is comfortable. Congrats on the interview!
  11. I have received an email today from my POI inviting me to interview weekend. What does this mean? Is there a good chance I will be accepted? What typically happens during interview weekend?
  12. I think it really depends on the department and the POI. I talked to one prof and he said straight up that he doesn't accept undergrads from the same university. One poster referred to it as "academic incest" and that is what he basically told me. You should talk to your professors because sometimes, they will consider it.
