    Do you have any poster presentations or preferably publications?

    Am I Competitive? Please Read

    Your work experience is extremely impressive, but I fear your lack of research productivity and somewhat low GREs will hold you back from the top schools. Are those the only two you are applying to?
  11. I assume when this question is listed on an online application and it is not required, the correct thing to do is not fill it in? Is there something I'm missing here? Thanks for any input y'all can provide!

    Will I be too old to start a PhD?

    I don't think PhD programs care so much about your age as your experience. Did you gain the experience they wanted in your two years off? Do you feel you will be a better candidate at the end of the MPH?

    Fall 2018 Counseling Psych (PhD/Masters)

    @MarkLovesER, I think most programs realize that hands-on counseling experience is hard to get. However, many counseling psychology applicants will probably have a bit more clinical experience at the PhD applicant level, since many applicants already have a master's degree which required them to do an internship or practicum in the field. Really highlight your group therapy assistant experience in you SOP for sure.
