  1. Hi everyone, Has anyone ever started preparing to apply to grad school (PhD more specifically) and then decided to not apply or decided to apply the next year? If so, what was the reason?

    Anyone aced the GRE in one try?

    Hi everyone, Is there anyone who did really well on the GRE on the first try, and didn't need to take the test again? If you did, how did you study? Any tips? Thanks!
  3. Hello all! For those who are in an I/O Psychology PhD or Masters' program, or who has finished, what is your current job or what job/career are you hoping to have? I'm very interested and curious in knowing, since I want to pursue further education in I/O Psychology and I would love to know everyone's jobs/careers! Thanks!

    People who ALMOST applied to grad school (PhD)

    @kitcassidance and @PsychUndergrad Thank you both! I ask because I'm in the same predicament - I don't have that much research experience and am not sure if it's worth it to spend all that money on applying to grad schools and then be rejected. I'm not sure if if I should just go to a Masters' program - if I get accepted of course -- or just focus on getting research experience and then applying the next year.
  5. Hello, I have some research experience, but not a whole lot. But I do have a good amount of work experience, extracurricular activities, and volunteer experience that's related to my major and the field I want to study in a PhD program. Are there any tips on how to incorporate everything and make me look like a good candidate even though I may not have as much research experience but a ton of everything of everything else that can translate to good research experience? Through my work experience I definitely have some research interests in mind by the way. Thanks in advance!

    Application spreadsheet?

    Definitely second using My Grad School Apps Tracker, or creating your own personalized spreadsheet yourself. I felt that theirs was too long, or had some unnecessary columns, so I created my own on Google sheets based on theirs! It's a great way to track everything. And you should definitely have other tabs for passwords and usernames for each school's website.
  7. Hi everyone, I'm planning to apply to PhD programs. I know it's super competitive, and so I wanted to have a back up plan in case I don't get in anywhere. Should I apply to some Masters' programs as well? I know some PhD programs have Masters' programs IN them, but I just want to have a plan. And maybe having a Masters' degree might help me more when I apply again? Not sure. Thanks in advance!
