  1. I was lackluster in undergrad (3.30 GPA) and took two years off doing a non-psychology related job before attending an MA program then this PhD app cycle I got interviews at 5/7 Clinical programs I applied to and got 2 offers. DM me if you wanna chat!
  2. Just wanted to add to the positivity about less than competitive undergrad GPAs! I had a 3.30 in undergrad overall and only like a 3.5 for my last two years. I just had a terrible freshman year (like 2.5 GPA) and was relatively average beyond that year (like... my best semester ever in undergrad was a 3.75). But I got serious after I graduated and did a master’s to compensate for my not great undergrad. I’m finishing my master’s with a 4.0 and I got two clinical PhD offers (had 5 interviews and only applied to a total of 7 schools). That being said, I got a ton of posters and picked up a couple of publications in my master’s so that certainly helped me too. Since you’re early enough in your undergrad to make a difference, like others above me said, just work hard in your final two years and honors is even better! And research, research, research.
  3. I did two Skype interviews and two in person interviews. I think the "feel" of them was pretty similar as far as the actual interviews, but there are certainly drawbacks. You don't get the "feel" of the department, how faculty/grad student relations are, etc. Essentially, you miss out on the interpersonal aspect of interview weekend which is arguably a pretty big part. That being said, one of the programs I did a Skype interview for gave me an offer so it's not impossible to get one. I would say you just really have to use your Skype interview time to demonstrate your interpersonal skills as well as the goodness of your fit with their program.
