    AnxiouslyAwaitingDecisions reacted to psychochef in MA in General Psych advice   
    Master’s programs tend to be much more forgiving and accepting than PhD programs for applicants with terrible GPAs. I had an abysmal 1.9 GPA for my first year and a half of college before taking several years off to work on myself. I then transferred and got a stellar GPA at my final school, as well as excellent letters of rec and several conference presentations. Although my cumulative GPA was well below a 3.0, I received offers at several well-respected master’s programs in psych, including a funded one. I would suggest applying to quite a few programs and not limiting yourself geographically. In addition, some schools will calculate GPA based on the last 2 years and use that number instead of your cumulative GPA.
    Hope this is helpful!

    I don’t know where you are getting your information from (Can you provide a citation on this figure?), but you’d be setting someone up for failure by telling them to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology if they simply want to do pp/“full time clinical work.” Even in AMCs or integrated healthcare settings (VA, state hospitals, private hospitals, etc.), most individuals with such credentials are assigned administrative roles, teaching roles, etc., which would not allow them to engage in “full time clinical work.”
    The majority of reputable, competitive Ph.D. programs in clinical psychology would outright reject applicants who would even communicate such an interest at interviews or even their SOPs, as clinical psychologists are not simply psychotherapists. For those who are interested in a practice-oriented career, there are plenty of rigorous LMSW/MSW/MHC counseling programs that provide scientific training at least in EBP (UT Austin, UPenn, etc.).
    Please be careful about disseminating incorrect information on here- numerous doctoral-level forums across the Internet have addressed this topic in depth. This isn’t the first time someone has posted a similar question on the Internet re: graduate studies in clinical psychology

    Thank you so much!
    For Yeshiva, I don't believe so, as it was addressed personally to me ("Dear [name]",). Checking the results section, it looks like a few heard the day after me about an interview. Hopefully they're still sorting through them and you'll hear as well! Good luck!

    Hi, could you clarify what led you to say this? Did you ask about a specific POI or interview date? I called yesterday and was told they'd still take a while to review all the apps.

    Colorado State: "Apparently you don't even have to apply in order to be rejected from certain schools. What a cluster F it must be over there that they're emailing people who have simply requested information that they're 'rejected'."

    AnxiouslyAwaitingDecisions reacted to Crucial BBQ in Favorite Rejection Quotes from the Results Page   
    I read one the other day that simply read: "Wow!"
     
     
    My favorites are more of a type and not any one in particular.  They fall under two categories:
     
    "I have the highest GPA and GRE scores of anyone in the history of the World.  I published in every single research journal on the planet.  I won ten Nobel Prizes last year...I was so positive I was going to be accepted that I moved to [location of school] before I even submitted my application.  Graduate school admissions officers are a bunch of imbeciles who are too ignorant to exist".  A bit of an exaggeration, sure, but these types of "quotes" are there. 
     
    And,
     
    "No biggie.  I knew I was not going to get accepted".

    I am 5+ years older than the "cohort" of applicants in the research lab I'm working in (they're 21-23? Recent grads, pretty young, both from a maturity aspect and professionally) and can sympathize with the both of you. I however have real life experience and 4+ years in this clinical research field that they do not, so it gives me a bit of a confidence booster that my application materials were much stronger in this aspect. I don't let this get to me whatsoever. Also, this being my 3rd app round, I feel my experiences have truly narrowed down my interests and I know what I want to do with my career, for the rest of my life. This helped me create very strong SOPs this app round vs. the disastrous mess I submitted the last 2 rounds (I was so naive lol).
    You can learn a lot from rejections.. it's all about how you respond & persevere
