    low GRE quant & clinical psyc

    2 years in a neuropsych lab after undergrad, I had a year of research and clinical experience from undergrad, 4 poster presentations, 2 manuscripts either in revision or under review, and 1 encyclopedia chapter in prep. I’m 1st authored on the posters and encyclopedia chapter, 2nd on one manuscript and 5th on the other.

    low GRE quant & clinical psyc

    These are similar to my scores and I got into a R1 clinical psych PhD program. If the rest of your CV is strong, one weakness is not going to make them throw out your entire application. Good luck!

    Fall 2020 Clinical & Counseling PhD/PsyD

    I will be attending UNL's clinical psych PhD program in the Fall so feel free to DM me with any specific questions about their application/interview process.

    Fall 2020 Clinical & Counseling PhD/PsyD

    I got a 159V/149Q/5.5 writing and was accepted to a R1 clinical psych PhD program for Fall 2019 if that helps! Editing to add that a lot of programs will overlook a weakness in one area if you make up for it in another. For example, I clearly had a terrible quant GRE score, and I also had a low undergrad GPA (3.13 cumulative), but I have great research and clinical experience, multiple first-author poster presentations, multiple manuscript collabs, and at the time of applying I had an encyclopedia chapter where I'm first authored in prep in my area of interest. I was convinced I wouldn't make it to the next stage of the process because of my GRE/GPA but I received multiple interviews to my top programs of choice. In short, don't let the numbers get you down!!!!

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    This is a very different scenario but one I can offer... My mom changed her career from Human Resources to psychology about 5 years ago and she went to MiSSP for her psych masters. She did pass her EPPP but yeah, she doesn’t have great things to say about the school/program. She’s in private practice now as a LPP. From her, it’s a joke and most graduates don’t even go on to being in psych careers. I hope this helps!

    Clinical Psychology - Phone offer before Formal Letter

    Congratulations! This was the case for me. My POI called me late morning and then I got the formal offer later that same day. Hope this helps!

    I would send an email to Jamie Longwell if you still haven't heard! I received my offer the week after interviews. Good luck!

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Temple is more research focused than clinical, they don’t have a 70 clinical/30 research split. I can’t speak for Harvard or Yale. My original comment was saying even the most clinical focused programs wouldn’t have research taking a backseat to clinical.

    Even the most “clinical focused” PhD programs will be a 50/50 split. Clinical psych phd’s are being trained to be researchers primarily so you’d be better off with a PsyD.

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    I got accepted to a program on 2/21 and my friend got accepted to the same program on 2/27 because they were different PI's. I don't know how Florida does it but it isn't unheard of for PI's to do it on their own terms. Assuming you interviewed, I wouldn't consider yourself rejected at this point.

    My quant score was even lower than this persons (159 V, 5.5 writing) and a 3.2 undergrad GPA. I’ve been accepted to a R1 school for clinical psych PhD. Acting like it’s a number games is very wrong. “Stats” get you through the door but it’s your interviewing skills and general likability that actually gets you offers.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    They wouldn't of wasted their time inviting you to interview if you weren't being considered. I can't speak to this specific university but most programs want diversity in their incoming cohort, not interview weekend. There's a lot of reason why people aren't given offers, despite having all their interviews go really well. Everyone who's invited to interviews is qualified for a spot in the program and a lot of times faculty have to split hairs to actually choose who the best person is. A lot of times it can come down to, "Can I see myself working with this person for the rest of my and their career?" so your personality fit with your mentor can be just as important as research fit.
