  1. Yeah I think so. Both our programs are big R1 programs. I did not get any mention of paying anything just yet. I think We might have to pay for some school fees but that’s it. Maybe heath insurance if yours isn’t automatically given to you
  2. Is your program fully funded?
  3. Is you program fully funded?
  4. My background: applied to counseling and clinical fully funded Doctoral programs. Some PSYDs are emergency schools my experience: Research match is EVERYTHING in these programs (not PSYDs). It doesn’t have to be word for word but if you can articulate how your research to this point can transition well to the POIs work, that will impress during statement reading and interviews. Publications and presentations help but you don’t NEED them to compete with others. Interview day is formal. I went through multiple interview through out this process and watch many applicants shoot
  5. Honestly rankings for doctoral programs are fake. No way can a website or an organization can actually rate a PhD program. Take the fact that full tuition + stipend is a better indicator of the quality of the program and it’s values. this is just general advice. For example, in clinical\ counseling psychology doctoral programs, Columbia university TC is a school people want to go to due to the name merit. However, it is an unfunded program as well. Most professionals in the field say that schools matter to a certain degree but the debt one takes is much more impact on your life in
  6. In New York, this is relevant for most schools at least from my perspective. Teachers college has name merit but overall isn’t the same prestige and quality as other Ivy League schools. In psych PhDs there, they are also a unfunded program. I would suggest really doing the math. The massive debt in comparison to earning potential might not be worth it. Even better, deferring and focus on funded programs is a great idea. Just my two cents
  7. That sounds like a struggle. For me, this was my challenge post masters degree. I needed just a little more research experience and my area of living had nothing. if I was you, this is the time to get in connect with former advisors in the field and see if they have or they know someone that has research opportunities. In addition, you can look at RA positions that are part time but really, if you want to make it to clinical psych PhD level at a respected program you need to go full time to maybe have a chance for more experience. Based on your background, you prob have enough clin
  8. As an applicant this year who got admitted, I was very worried that funding will be an issue. If you read on the results page, some people have noted that this pandemic has caused faculty to lose a spot that they were expecting. I feel bad for the students who had to deal with that type of rejection because it isn’t really a rejection. thankfully, I was given full funding. To comment your concern, I think if anything, unless funding was pulled, applicants with acceptances are taking their offers rather than deferring considering the fear of these changing next year. Why risk less funding
  9. Ranking don’t exist. Never trust any website ranks on “top 25 psychology programs”
  10. Hi, this is more dependent on the specific psyd program you got into. If you talking generally, you will be at a disadvantage for your goal of a post doc research fellowship. Doing a dissertation doesn’t matter since all PhD level clinical and counseling students are required to that. A lab with your interest is great but it depends on how productive the faculty is in the research field. If the psyd is at the caliber of a research emphasis program like Rutgers or Baylor, then you might not be at a disadvantage. if you want to pm me the program I can look at
  11. What!? The numbers are in your favor!! Keep us updated on the results
  12. Wow, as one cycle ends, another begins 😅 this is very excited. Remember put your head down and prep to grind through multiple applications. as far as your questions: I asked my LORs in September “would they write a letter for me” and then after I nailed that down. A month and a half before applications were due. I sent The request out all at once so my writers can just crank it out at once and be done. As far as contacting POI. start end of August, if they don’t answer, request info from the department coordinators. Map out fit and availability & boom you well have your appl
