  1. If you don't mind, could you list the top 20 schools that accept 50% of applicants? The rest of my stats are excellent, but I have a low GRE quant score (140) and I was rejected by UTD.
  2. Hi, Katie. I haven't applied to UT Southwestern yet, but I have applied to some programs. I have pretty much the same experience as you, but my GRE was meh: 159V, 140Q, and 5.0 AWA. I was rejected from UTD's Communication Disorders MS program, but I was applying out-of-field and they like to weed people out with the GRE. I was accepted into a general psychology master's program for the Spring and I applied to UNT Clinical Psychology program in the Fall. I have no idea if I'll be able to overcome my crap GRE scores, though. It's kind of a bummer that we've both worked so hard in our field, but
  3. That sounds like a great idea. I think I'm going to reach out to some professors at UNT.
  4. Which programs did you get interviews/accepted?
  5. I got rejected by UTD, too. I'm an out of field applicant (my undergrad major was Psychology as well), but it's encouraging to hear that someone with a similar quantitative GRE score can be accepted into so many programs.
  6. Why not try TAMU? Their biostatistics Ph.D. program would readily accept you.
  7. JennWilhelm, which programs were you accepted into? My verbal score was good (159), as was my writing score (5), but my quantitative score was also 141. I was rejected by UTD for SLP and am waiting to hear back from UNT. Right now, I'm trying to save up money to apply to a few programs--preferably ones that are willing to overlook a crappy quantitative score for other strong qualities.
  8. I am currently finishing my application for UNT's Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program, but I'm worried about my chances of getting in because of my so-so GRE scores. My verbal score was 159 (83rd percentile) and my writing score was 5 (92nd percentile), but my quantitative score was 140 (8th percentile). Will this less-than-stellar score overshadow my other qualities? I have an overall GPA of 3.9 and a major GPA (psychology) of 4.0, I have strong letters of recommendation (including one from the head of the psychology department at my university), my statement of purpose was specific, and I have
  9. Currently, I'm a Junior at Texas A&M-Commerce, and will be applying for graduate school in December 2018. I'm a psychology major with an overall GPA of 3.9 and a major GPA of 4.0, with experience in independent study, research, and data analysis. I expect to graduate summa cum laude and receive good letters of recommendation from the professors with whom I've conducted research. However, I doubt that I will be able to achieve a high or even average score on the GRE. On all of the practice tests I've taken so far, I've done well in the verbal and written areas (156-160 on the verbal, and 5.
