  1. Hey Y'all, I am not applying this cycle but I plan to apply to cognitive psych/cognitive neuroscience programs next year. Background on me: I took two years off after undergrad to do research in a neurology/neuromuscular lab that is highly regarded but, as a result, I haven't done as much "actual" psychology work. I'm particularly interested in neurodegeneration in aging and using neuroimaging to identify correlations in the change in volume of different structures in the brain and cognitive functioning. By the time I apply I will have at least one poster and a paper in publication at a top tier journal. Questions: How far in advance are y'all reaching out to PI's and what have you said to them about yourself before you actually submit any applications? Any advice about applications is appreciated!
  2. I applied last year and got in to a program that ultimately I knew wasn't right for me. I really wish I hadn't of applied last year because it was a waste of time and money since I realistically didn't know EXACTLY what I wanted to do and I believe that showed in my applications. While your resume is impressive now, it will only get better AND you will have a better idea of what your ultimate goal is and what the best way to get there is. It is also very nice to have some time in my early twenties where I'm not stressed about school! Good luck!
  3. Hey y'all, I worked about 20-30 hours a week in my undergraduate lab for about two years and I just started in a lab position after undergrad but I want to get more experience with publishing. Is it appropriate to approach my undergraduate research advisor about continuing to work remotely with her? One of my coworkers suggested it. Any advice? Thanks!
  4. Hi! Did you have any publications or research posters?
  5. Have you heard of doing a graduate certificate to show you can do the coursework while working in another lab?
  6. Hey everyone! I am trying to get opinions on my likelihood of getting accepted to Clinical PhD programs and Neuroscience PhD programs with a below average undergraduate GPA (3.2 overall and 3.25 last 60 hours). I worked in a lab for 1.5 years in undergrad and just started a position full time as a project coordinator in a neuroscience lab which is a two year commitment. I have not published yet but have a poster presentation coming up in a few months. My GRE scores were 160Q and 156V. Any advice on raising undergraduate GPA after graduation with other courses outside of doing a masters program? I am planning on applying for the Fall 2021 cycle. Any advice is appreciated!!!
  7. I would be interested in doing blogs about dealing with rejection and ways to improve your chances at graduate acceptances

    I applied because we have similar research interests at the time I was applying but my interests have changed a bit since then.

    So I'm waitlisted at Mizzou in the Cognition and Neuroscience program where the POI is interested in similar things to me but it isn't a great match because I am more interested in abnormal aging and neuro-imaging but he doesn't do neuro-imaging and he does healthy aging research. I also have two potential job offers in the neurology departments at the University of Miami and WashU. The WashU position doesn't really provide me with the research experience (its a psychometrician job) so I wouldn't get to really improve my skills and I probably wouldn't get published but the lab is really well known and the UMiami position is still with neurodegenerative diseases but not specifically Alzheimer's but I would have the opportunity to learn a lot of new skills and its a research job. If anyone has any advice on what route makes the most sense if I want to apply to graduate school in the next two years, which position is best or if I should just take the Mizzou graduate school's position if it's offered. PLEASE HELP
  10. I got an email from one of the Mizzou POIs saying that he's been out of town and just starting to look at application for the cognition and neuroscience program. I think some of the non-clinical/counseling programs are still figuring stuff out. At least I'm hoping.
  11. Wow that is so annoying. I only got the email that they got my application together on the at 2 am on the 16th ?
  12. I applied to experimental psych at South Carolina and GaTech cognition and brain sciences and have heard back from neither
  13. I got an email from Johns hopkins yesterday saying they JUST got my application connected with my GRE scores because it's a new system.
  14. I applied to nine schools and have only heard back from one.. starting to get very nervous. Anyone else in the same boat? The one response was an interview invitation but still very nervous.
