  1. I'm starting my phd in clinical psych this fall and am trying to figure out if I will have time to continue working with my tutoring clients. There's one client that is about 3 hours a week in the evenings, which I'm not too worried about, but the other clients end up being about 20 hours a week during the day. They've all said they could meet me at my school library so I wouldn't have to spend time commuting, but I'm wondering if this is too much of a time commitment? Can anyone who is or has been in a clinical or counseling psych phd give me any insight? Thanks so much!
  2. From what I understand, you can apply to multiple programs within the CUNY system but not multiple psychology programs within CUNY graduate center. So you can apply to John Jay, Queens College, City College, etc but you couldn't apply to both the education psychology and health psychology programs at CUNY graduate center. Unless they've changed something in the last year?
  3. Got an email followed by a phone call from the director of my top choice program offering me admission! I am so excited!! Fingers crossed for my fellow waitlisters here. It is a stressful process! I am really grateful for this forum full of people who understand!
  4. No, I didn't apply there. But fingers crossed for both of us, and everyone else in the same boat!!!
  5. I did my MA at TC and I know the credit requirements make it appear you could be done in a year, however, if you're working at all during the program, an active member of a research lab (putting in the time to publish and present), trying to get in to specific sections of classes, etc., it's actually not super common to finish in a year. There were two people that did that I know of in the last few years and they went full time during the summer and started their IP (your thesis-esque project) their first semester in order to graduate that quickly. And it was still difficult for them to do it. Each one of them did it because they had extenuating circumstances and needed to, however, it's definitely not very common. Most people who start in Fall 2019 would finish in Spring 2021. So it's about 1.5 years.
  6. Yes! It's getting more and more intense with each passing day! I wake up every morning thinking, today could be it, for good or bad.
  7. YES. I am simultaneously excited and anxious
  8. I also went to TC for my MA and one of the factors I can think of considering when deciding between TC and NYU is incoming class size. TC's incoming class size felt large at times, so if NYU has a smaller incoming class, that could be a pro for their program. The previous posters are correct when it comes to freedom to research wherever you want to. I went to TC and did research there and at NYU and ultimately did my IP (kind of like your thesis to graduate) with an NYU lab. I liked that TC was fairly unstructured. They don't tell you which courses you have to take, however, that means if you are planning on a PhD in the future, you'll want to plan your courses accordingly. They don't make you take stats, but a PhD program will want you to have taken it. If that makes sense? There are grad student advisors that you can meet with to discuss what courses would be good to take for your future plans. They're usually really helpful. Faculty are also good resources for that, but they tend to not be as up to date on requirements. They know what they look for in a grad student but not necessarily what the field in general has moved to. I think this program is a very good example of something being what you make it. If you are proactive and organized, then you'll do great here. If you're looking for a more structured environment, you may want to consider NYU (if they possess that quality). If you want to research with a faculty member at TC (counseling or clinical) I would suggest contacting them and expressing your interest and then seeking them out very soon after the semester begins. You want to start research as soon as possible and a lot of the labs fill up quickly the first semester. Or, find research opportunities outside of TC as soon as possible. The longer you are working with a lab, the more likely you are to have presentation and publication opportunities. Just a side note about financials: they offer scholarships the first year but generally speaking those scholarships do not carry over into the second year. So unless your financial award explicitly states it is for multiple years, it's probably only for your first year.
  9. Waitlisted at St. John's and City College. Feel free to reply or PM if you're planning on attending either one (would love to connect with possible future cohort and people making decisions about one or both schools) or if you're declining (would also love to know what my chances of acceptance are looking like). Good luck everyone!!!
  10. Has anyone heard from St. John's for Clinical Psych PhD? They said we were supposed to hear Monday, 3/11 but there has only been one post on the results page. Also wondering if anyone has any info. on CUNY City College waitlist? Has there been any movement? Is anyone planning to accept/decline? Thanks so much! Pretty sure everyone I know would be sick of hearing about grad school by now if it weren't for me having this forum as an outlet 😅
  11. I was waitlisted at my top program and they didn't give a ranking but said the waitlist is short and my chances of getting in were "quite strong." Of course I have no idea what that means, numbers wise, but it was reassuring to hear he thought the odds were good. It's just so stressful to have to keep up the waiting game! He said he thought for a few weeks but it could be as long as April 15th!! Anyways, just wanted to commiserate with people who understood the pain!
  12. I got an email after business hours yesterday that my application was incomplete (the portal didn't reflect this). I called right when they opened this morning and talked with admissions. They said they think my official GRE scores were not attached because I was recently married and changed my name. They said they can't forward the application to the department until all of the materials are submitted and would email their documents department to get it straightened out, but everyone is on break now. This is a school that some have posted interview invites from and their website says they send out invites in December for January interviews. My question is, should I email the POI and tell her the situation? We exchanged a few emails in early Fall and she was nice and encouraged me to apply. Any thoughts/ideas/opinions?

  14. Just wondering if anyone who applied to Yale's PREP program applied to the NIH PREP or to the ESI-PREP? And if you know if the timeline for each program is similar? Thanks!
