  1. There isn't any RA jobs in the city at the moment unfortunately, at least none that pay an adequate amount. Most are unpaid internships, or RA jobs for a completely different field. Thanks so much for the insight, I'll send some emails out and hope that I gain some responses and/or luck.
  2. Hi All! So I am a online master's student at Arizona State University for my MS in psychology. I would love to move on to get my phD or psyD, however, I have ZERO research experience under my belt. I know that in order to even be considered for such a program, I need to obtain research experience for a year or two. The issue I have at hand is I also work full-time. I work a solid 8-5, M-F. The good news is that there's a university right across the street from my job, I'm just wary of any professors willing to take on a volunteer master student from another university with such limited availability. Also quitting my job is not a choice. I have way too many expenses I pay for living in San Diego, California. If anyone has any tips or suggestions and has gone through a similar situation as myself, please let me know. Thanks!

  4. Recent graduate with my BA in Sociology, really looking to get my phD in Clinical Psych with a Law emphasis so I can become a psychologist within the law enforcement career. BUT due to certain circumstances while enrolling in uni, I wasn't able to take any psychology undergrad courses along with my sociology degree, so I have very minimal psych background--like maybe 5 classes in total. I have no research experience in psychology, and I'm currently looking at taking a post-bacc program at UC Berkeley. I might have some connects in getting into a lab for research experience, but it's not solid. Regardless, my question is: should I go get my Master's first--and put myself in further debt--and add two years to my already 4-6 years of schooling for my phD? OR Find some research experience, take this post-bacc program at Berkley &apply for my phD for fall 2020? ANY TIPS ADVICE ETC will be so beneficial. Even if its the harsh truth! I will love to hear stories about what others did, especially if it was someone in a non-psychology background to see what challenges they've faced etc. All is welcome though! sidenote: I might have to take the post-bacc program regardless of which path I take. Thanks.
  5. So I have a sociology BA degree, and I'm really interested in getting my masters and PhD or Psy.D in clinical pyschology. I have very minimal undergrad psychology background, less than a minor. I only graduated less than a year ago (June 2017), and I'm about to sign up for the psychology subject test to spice up my applications. Anyway would anyone mind giving me some tips towards the test? I recently bought an intro to psych book, the Gleitman 7th edition. I have the princeton and kaplan review books. The test is in April of 2018, and I'll most likely take it again in October depending on my test score. I really want to score extremely high due to my lack of experience in research. (&I'm also in a online post-bacc program at UC Berkley to cover my psych courses that I'm missing) Anyways, any type of tips or advice would help! Thank you
