  1. How to know where to apply

    Hi, I'm interested in applying this December for a PhD Clinical Psychology program for Fall 2018. I have a few questions regarding how to know what schools to apply to and determining what schools are schools I would be able to get into. My background: Behavioral Neuroscience major and computer science minor at Northeastern University graduating in May 2018, 3.5 overall GPA, 3.67 behavioral neuroscience GPA, and 3.75 Psychology GPA. I have 4 publications (first author of 2, one pertaining to autism research). I have done 2 six month coops working 40 hr/week in a Newborn Medicine Lab at Boston Children's Hospital and in a Pharmacology and Physiology Lab at The George Washington University, researching autism at both labs. I will be doing another six month coop at the Yale Early Social Cognition Lab at Yale University, doing research on with kids with autism. I am specifically interested in autism (as seen by my background), yet at a lot of schools there aren't professors in the clinical psychology program doing autism research. I'm wondering if its absolutely necessary that I do my PhD with a professor doing autism research? Or should I only be applying to programs with professors doing autism research? Also based on my research background/gpa, how can I figure out what schools to apply to? A lot of schools don't put gpa info on their websites it seems (and I understand because its a holistic process), but how can I know where I am in the range of applying to? Thanks!
