    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    Yes, I was clinical and my status changed. However, it went back to "under review" after like 20 minutes of being "reviewed". I am wondering if it was perhaps a clerical error.

    Decisions..

    Also 0% an expert, but I would agree that all else being equal, a research position is more relevant for a PhD. With that said, when I was deciding what to do after an unsuccessful admissions cycle last year, one of my mentors told me that it's completely valid to take a higher paying job that is not as relevant. As much as we like to pretend we live and breathe our careers 24/7, there's more to life than research...and money usually helps improve those things And with something like being a psychometrist, it's clearly still related to what you want to do. If it's in an academic setting, you might even see if you could find a way to volunteer some time to get an authorship/poster with a PI in your department. I personally ended up sticking in a research position, but I have to supplement my income with a part-time higher paying job to live life comfortably.

    Had a meeting with my current PI today and she was checking in on how I was doing emotionally during this waiting game and she goes "I see you checking that stupid website" 😂

    I personally would probably text. The fact that she chose to text suggests to me that she doesn't rely on email and may not be responsive if you go that route. Obviously, texting is kind of weird and informal, but I mean...she started it... However, I have no expertise at all and also agree that this is a super weird situation.

    I had one last year. I was asked to elaborate on my research experiences and to speak specifically about research questions I would like to answer. They also talked about themselves as a researcher/mentor to determine if we sounded like a good match. And ended with the usual "Any questions I can answer for you about myself, the program, or <insert city>?"

    I guess I appreciate the follow-ups, but all of the reminder emails about "incomplete applications" due to letters not being in yet are not helping my anxiety!

    Accepted PHD Students and GRE

    I posted this question in the main thread and I think it got a little buried, hoping someone following here might have some advice? -I took the GRE originally a year ago and got Q:159 (72%) V:161 (88%) AW: 4.5 (82%) . Quite honestly, I was happy with this, but a mentor encouraged me to retake it. I did so earlier this month and got Q: 157 (65%) V:167 (98%) AW:5.0 (92%). Now I'm at a loss of what to send to schools that do not superscore. Is it better to have solidly average scores in both categories or very high in verbal and low-average in quant (based on my most competitive schools)? I've gotten advice on both sides 😭

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Hi all! Let me introduce myself quickly: -Graduated in the Spring w my BA in psych and gender studies (3.85 GPA) -Completed and defended thesis before graduation and sending out updated version of that manuscript for publication any day. Second/middle author on two other manuscripts that are in prep but not likely to be sent out in a timely manner for applications. -First author on one poster that was presented at national conference, won/placed at university undergraduate poster forum two years, second author on 3 other posters presented/accepted to national conferences -Applied to 7 programs last year, staying very close to my relatively niche research interests. Got 2 interviews and no offers (one PoI ended up taking nobody and the other went with another applicant and when I asked for feedback she said it was a "flip of a coin" and gave no other constructive feedback :/). This round I am expanding the number of programs that I am applying to as well as my research horizons, applying to some related areas. This has gotten me to a list of 19 schools, which I will likely pare down slightly before Dec 1: UC Boulder, VCU, Rochester, Miami (FL), Iowa, Syracuse, Washington, Kansas, GWU, Michigan State, Texas, UT Southwestern, Purdue, Pitt, Nebraska, NW Feinberg, Stony Brook, UNC Chapel Hill, and UBC. GRE Question: -I took the GRE originally a year ago and got Q:159 (72%) V:161 (88%) AW: 4.5 (82%) . Quite honestly, I was happy with this, but a mentor encouraged me to retake it.

Is it better to have solidly average scores in both categories or very high in verbal and low-average in quant (based on my most competitive schools from the above list)? I've gotten advice on both sides 😭

    Clinical Psych PhD - Canada v USA?

    I am browsing programs to apply to this cycle and I am an American, but share research interests with several professors at Canadian universities. I am very familiar with the application, training/internship, and post-doctoral norms in America, but was wondering what the differences may be in Canada? I'm doing some browsing myself, but was hoping someone here might have some experience and be able to summarize the differences easily (: In either country, I will be looking for clinical psych programs with a strong basis in research and of course APA/CPA accredited. Thank you!

    Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Does anyone know whether Kansas or Texas at Austin have finished sending out invites? I had seen one or two people reporting hearing a few weeks ago, but wasn't sure. If you have heard, I would really appreciate you messaging your POI.
