  1. So does that mean all the universities that required the subject test now won't require them? It won't affect our applications?
  2. Sorry for the delayed response, but thank you so much everyone. The ideas here really help me a lot, seriously. Thank you!!! I'm looking forward to this internal fun work haha
  3. Hey y'all! I'm currently applying to Clinical Psychology PhD programs for Fall 2021 admissions. This will be my first time every going through the application cycle, so yes, I'm very excited and very nervous Here's my conundrum though, I'm still not sure about my research interests. I just graduated from with my MA in Psychology this Spring, so I have had 2 years of 'official' psychology experience, if you may, and while I thoroughly enjoyed every core class I took (biopsych, ethics, cognitive, stats, etc), I'm still not sure about what exactly I want to research for the next 5 years...
  4. I never thought about their email response potentially highlighting their mentorship/communication style too. That is actually very enlightening and I'll keep an eye out for the response type. Also, if you see below, @justacigar provided amazing email templates to use for emailing PI's. Hope this helps!!
  5. Hi all! Nervous and freaking out first timer applying to Clinical Psych PhD programs here ! I was wondering how is everyone reaching out to their PIs for Fall 2021 admissions? Like, what do you say in the email and how do you get them to respond to you? It seems so scary to reach out of the blue... I would really appreciate any advice y'all may have. Thank you!!
  6. Hey this is amazing!! Congrats! I'm also starting to apply for Clinical PhD programs. I was wondering what kind of an intro email did you send that led them to having meetings with you? Because, that is honestly an amazing achievement.
  7. That makes a lot of sense. Oh yeah, that year off will definitely help then since I don't have any publications yet (although I'm collecting data for a potential paper now but def need more). How many publications/presentations would be good enough for a MA grad applying to PhD? Also, I was wondering since I would have my MA when applying, would that shave off like 2 years from a PhD program? Since I heard that the first 2 years actually are en route to getting an MA within the program.
  8. Thank you! Yes, I'll definitely make that my goal/
  9. Hi y'all! Love all the advice in this forum. I'm currently finishing up my MA in Psychology in Spring 2020. I have decided to take a year off between my MA and starting my Clinical Psychology PhD. So I'll be applying for and starting my PhD in Fall 2021. Is this a good idea? Any thought/advice/tips on what should I do in the year to amp up my PhD application? Background: BS in Biomedical Engineering Current: MA in Psychology, RA in 3 labs on campus, 1 poster presented on campus, no publications yet... Thanks!
  10. Thank you so much! That helps a lot in defining it and I'm going to apply to similar places
  11. How do you define 'clinical experience' when applying to Clinical PhD programs? Really struggling with explaining this to potential places where I could maybe volunteer.
  12. For sure, I just asked almost every faculty in my department if they had an opening. I had to pursue some for a long time before they said yes lol. So just keep asking your faculty, you never know who might have an opening!
  13. Thank you so much! Makes sense, I'm definitely focusing more on the RA aspect then as I'm currently an RA for 3 labs. Also, the ideas about personal statement are really helpful, going to work on them stat!
