It has been a hot minute since I checked in here...happy to see people progressing on their applications!
I spent September studying for and taking the GRE Psychology subject test and retaking the GRE General test. My standard GRE scores weren't as good as the ones I took two years ago (when I applied to Master's programs), so I sent my initial scores off to schools (157 V, 155 Q, 4.0 AW). I'm still waiting to hear back my Psychology scores, since it was a written test and those take longer, but I felt good about it!
I also narrowed down my schools that I'm applying to: University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, University of Washington, Loyola University Chicago, University of Texas-Austin, Boston University, University of Florida, and University of Miami. All of those are clinical programs, except for UT, which is a school program. I emailed and heard back from PIs at 3 of the schools when I was unsure about whether they were accepting students, so my name is out there! If anyone has any insight to these programs or is applying there as well, feel free to reach out.
My plan is to spend October revising my personal statement, nailing down my 3rd recommendation letter (the other two are luckily locked down), and sending off transcripts. I am SHOCKED that some people already have applications submitted-I still think I'm a month out from having anything fully submitted. The second year of my Master's is proving to be much challenging than the first (currently juggling two research labs, my thesis, a class, and applications)! Anyways, best of luck to everyone!!
