    Status of LPC/LCSW in Different States

    I can say in NY, MSW is definitely more respected and opens more doors. I was a pre-licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) in CA, and have found opportunities for anything other than LM/CSW to be severely lacking.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Not guaranteed, but likely. Some schools send a second round if interviews are turned down by 1st round. Oftentimes though, they’ll send a waitlist email to that effect.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Feeling pretty confident FDU and Adelphi are done as they were both mass emails. St. John’s didn’t send out until 2/6 last year. I didn’t get an interview at FDU (a little shocked tbh), but at Adelphi, I listed JG and JM as POIs of interest in my SOP

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Ha ha ha! I feel ya. I think my apps were a mess year 1. I don't know how I got ANY interviews! I will say, most of the people I interviewed with both years said my clinical experience is what set me apart from other candidates.

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    I definitely think my age/experience is to my benefit, but I'd prefer not to be close to 50 when I graduate with a doctorate. Mid-40s was feeling like a stretch. I can probably do much of what I want to do with a master's, it's just a less direct path.

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Thank you. I am not taking it personally; I know it is a bit of a crapshoot in a lot of ways and there are SO many factors involved, including my lack of an extensive network. I am qualified candidate and have a solid application (strong recs, well-written and clear SOP, scores comparable at the schools to which I am applying, etc). I just feel like it's not meant to be if I don't get in this year. I can't stand my job, (due to management and other issues, not research in general) and if I go somewhere else I would have to stay for at least 2 more years before applying again. I am already (at least) several years older than the vast majority of people on here and I am not willing to start 5-6 years more school that late in life. It's frustrating to be sure, but if that's not the way it goes, it's just the way it goes. I really appreciate everyone's support though

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    This is my third and final attempt. I don’t think I’m getting interviews for any funded programs, all but one school has sent (at least some) invites. I applied for a few partially funded, but am not sure at this point if that’s realistic financially (debt from master’s already). I got 2 waiting lists for funded schools and 1 acceptance (psyd that I turned down) year 1. I received an interview and subsequent waiting list for 1 school 2nd time. So, I took a year off of apps and got a full time job running a large federally-funded study. Pub in the works, but a couple presentations. And now nothing?!?! The more qualified I get the less competitive I appear to be...
