  1. How to "School" In Psychology (Study Tips)

    I'm pretty familiar with reading articles, but I haven't even come up with a system that was quick and useful for taking notes. Useful usually meant very long and quick usually meant not enough detail, so I'm trying to iron that all out.

    I took mine in August, October, and November. Just know that there IS time if things don't work out in August!
  3. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    I just finished the application cycle and every single program I applied to indicated that GRE scores had to be in by the December 1st deadline and that they wouldn't look at your application until everything is in. I also got the sense that of the 14 I applied to, only 13 seemed to have their mind made up before the deadline. Most schools don't even meet to talk about applications until mid-December. I took the GRE 3 times and the last one I took was November 14th. There was time for the score to show-up online and send to schools before the deadline. I wouldn't take it any later than that. Reminder, even though the score is reported to you the day you take the exam, it takes 10-15 days for it to be reported online with your writing score and THEN you can send it to all of your schools, which they claim takes 3-5 business days (not including the 4 schools you may have sent to during your exam).
  4. I'm starting at a new school in the Fall for a Ph.D in Clinical Psych and, for some reason, I can't find much online about how psychology students work in classes. For example, when professors assign 5+ papers to read per class/week, how do you best take notes on this? I know there is an entire system for cases in law school and I have to assume someone has a similar system for psych. What do you find are the most important things to take from a paper when you're learning it for a class/what is your system? I realize that, especially in psych, research is more of a focus than classes but it's still going to be a huge time consumer. Also, do you take notes on paper or computer? Just curious on how people on here do things!
  5. Clinical Psychology hopeful...

    I got into my program with average GRE scores, no publications, 1 international conference (and I wasn't even 1st author). But there was a lot of experience that, now, after applying, is turning into hella papers and publications. Shows that fit is EXTREMELY important and that if those things are in the works, you also might be okay.
  6. Anyone headed to Lexington this fall? I haven't really seen anyone from my area of interest... Anyways, hi!
  7. Lexington, KY

    Anyone have any suggestions for apartment complexes near campus that aren't filled with undergrads? Hoping for within 1 mile from campus!
  8. Fall 2017 Waitlist Thread

    Thank you both! Still shaking and in complete shock but so incredibly thrilled!
  9. Fall 2017 Waitlist Thread

    Accepted off the waitlist at the University of Kentucky! Don't give up hope, everyone! There is still time!
  10. Fall 2017 Waitlist Thread

    Sorry you were rejected from waitlist...but UC Irvine is a GREAT school!! Congrats!!
  11. Fall 2017 Acceptance Thread

    Extended to someone else, but I have the feeling that this POI may want both and could only extend to 1 to start with. The person they offered to is a rockstar and was at interviews with me and had more publications so I totally respect the decision to offer to them first if it is that case. But yeah. Can only stay hopeful now!
  12. Fall 2017 Acceptance Thread

    Wait for your official letter. I was given one of these unofficial offers from a POI and then waitlisted after they met as a committee :/
  13. Fall 2017 Clinical Psychology Applicants

    I just got an email from a POI I'm waitlisted with who has me as their first choice but is looking for funding. They just wanted to check in and see if I had any questions and I was wondering if anyone had any advice for the "do's and don'ts" in this type of situation. For example, I should probably still show that I'm very interested in this position, explain any questions I have, etc. But anyone else have any advice that helped them out? Or something that a POI might really like to hear in response to an email like this?

    Can the person accepted at Kentucky please PM me their POI?? I'm waitlisted there and dying.
  15. Fall 2017 Waitlist Thread

    If anyone on this forum gets off waitlist, you should also share it here so we can all live vicariously through you and feel that there is still hope in this world!!
