  1. School: University of Notre Dame Type of Program: Phd in Quantitative Psychology Acceptance Date: 2/12/2020
  2. Congrats on your admission! Thank you so much for pointing me in a direction in this preparation process! I do have one follow up question on the 4th advice you provided -- my POI has so many publications that there are almost 10 of them are published in 2019, should I go through all of them? Or should I just maybe pick three papers that seemed the most interesting and focus on just these three papers?
  3. Thanks for the advice! I will definitely go and read a bit on SEM.
  4. I was invited to an interview for a quant psych program, and I started to prepare for the interview from answering some common Ph.D. interview questions that I found online. I am wondering what else I could do to prepare for the interview and what to expect from quantitative psychology interviews. One thing that worries me the most about the interview is that I don't understand very much about the techniques that are used in the research of my professor of interest. His research contains uses of factor analysis, structural equation modeling, and item response theory under the context
  5. Thank you so very much! I have just talked to my advisor and have decided to withdraw from the course.
  6. Another concern is that if I withdraw from the this analysis class, then I might have too many Ws on my transcript because then I will have 3 Ws and 2 of which happens in my junior year. If this is the case, is it still best to withdraw from real analysis?
  7. I am a junior double majoring in math and psych, thinking to apply for masters in stat or Ph.D. in quantitative psych. I am currently struggling in real analysis - I handwritten the class notes two times, and still cannot do a single homework problem. I just cannot do proofs no matter how hard I try. I spent days trying to understand the definitions, but I just cannot use them. To the point where I know what the problem is asking and I can write down the relevant definitions word by word, but I just cannot formulate rigorous proofs. I don't know what else I could do except withdrawing from the

  9. Thank you! This is daunting to hear, but it is necessary to know!
  10. Thank you! This is exactly what I need to know!
  11. Thanks for the warning! The professor with whom I talked last semester just informed me that I might have to move to undesirable places if I wish to continue my study, but I will investigate further with other professors next semester.
  12. I was thinking about your suggestion that it is obligatory to not go into academic philosophy. I want to know more about this - what is the current situation in academic philosophy?
  13. I am a junior at a public ivy institution, majoring in math and philosophy, minoring in psych maintaining a 3.6 GPA. I will be applying to programs next fall. I have gotten into 1 research in a cognitive psych lab during the summer in which all I did was to read papers and proofread papers of the graduate students in the lab. I will be starting working with a faculty member during the spring, and will hopefully get to work on something that is more exciting. I have yet to take the GRE, but based on the practice test, I am probably going to be in the 315-320 range. My verbal
  14. I am a junior (international student) at a public ivy league institution, double majoring in math and philosophy, minoring in psychology maintaining a 3.6 overall GPA. I am contemplating about graduate school in philosophy, but I have relatively low grades in philosophy - all of my grades in philosophy are A-, and I withdrew from a seminar in ethics this semester. I have yet to take the GRE, but based on the practice test that I took recently, I am probably going to be in the 315-320 range. I am wondering at this point, is it still realistic to consider some good funded mas
  15. I am an international student in my second year of college double majoring in math and philosophy. I also took some psychology classes (intro to psych as social science, intro to psych as natural science, social psych, cognitive psych, stat course), I will be taking evolutionary psych next semester. It looks like that the structure of my classes each semester is 2 math, 1 phil, 1 psyc, and 1 general education course. I am currently having a 3.5 GPA. I will be working in a neuroscience lab this summer. By the end of my junior year, I will probably have two research experiences related to
