  1. Hi everyone! I have really been struggling to find summer 2021 internship opportunities because a lot of places aren't offering any with COVID, I figured I'm not the only one so wanted to make a post that could potentially help us all. Personally, I'm getting my MAIOP in Chicago so I'm hoping for something nearby/remote and in my field; I've looked on SIOP's website, LinkedIn, Indeed, my school's blackboard page with internship postings, and I've found fewer than 5 postings total (let alone ones that might actually be a good fit). Any advice is appreciated, feel free to add anything for
  2. Hi all! I recently was accepted at both Roosevelt and The Chicago School of Professional psychology for an MA in IO, and as many searches I can do and going over their websites I figured I should reach out here and see if anyone had any info or opinions about these programs. Any advice or information is most appreciated!
  3. Can anyone offer any info about Illinois Tech's PhD in I-O program? Mainly anything about their reputation, I applied there mostly for the location and wanted to see if people could say anything that can't necessarily be found online
  4. I just heard back from CSU on 2/18, waitlisted though so they might still be going through the "higher up" applications (I was not super competitive for this program so I was not expecting too much)
  5. Would you say that the extra time/energy is worth the PhD over just a master's? I'm looking to go into the applied field of IO and this is the first I've heard that a PhD is better than a master's in either case (I've asked professors and looked online, seems like everywhere says a PhD is really just if you want to go into academia).
  6. Can anyone provide a run-down of the differences between pursuing a Master's versus a PhD in IO? All of my internet searches have pretty much resulted with most jobs in this field require a master's, and having a PhD would just make you more competitive, but I haven't found much in terms of salary differences, grad program benefits/drawbacks between the two, or overall diversity of career options.
  7. I'm quickly realizing that I would currently not be as competitive as necessary to get into a PhD in clinical program, so I'm beginning to consider other options. I have yet to secure a research position but I am about to start working as an RBT at a center for autism, but this is part-time so I have hopes of finding a part-time research job in the coming months. As of now, I'm thinking I have two options: 1) continue working as an RBT and assume I will find a position in research soon, and continue in these roles until I apply for Fall 2021 clinical PhD programs, or 2) apply for Master's prog
  8. Yeah I'm about an hour outside of Denver and moving out near Boulder next month!
  9. Yes, I've been looking into volunteer RA positions the last couple weeks! Do you by chance know how those people got volunteer positions? I've just been emailing the labs directly to ask if they have any openings, I'm not sure this is the most effective way to get into one though.
  10. Hi friends, I have been planning on applying for Fall 2020 clinical psych PhD programs, but I'm getting pretty worried about my lack of research experience compared to those I would be applying alongside...I went to a small school for undergrad and we didn't have any research labs, so I have no "formal" research experience in a lab environment. I did a senior thesis project and poster, and I have one minor publication and I'm planning to work with my professor to get my senior thesis paper published as well. I graduated with my undergrad in May and I've been trying all summer to get a res
  11. Hi all, I have been planning on applying for clinical psychology PhD programs for Fall 2020, and basically just wanted to ask around for some advice/opinions on how good my chances are of actually getting accepted somewhere (trying to be realistic and not completely waste my time). I graduated this past May with a BA in psych and a minor in sociology, GPA 3.95. I did a group poster/project and presented at my school's undergraduate research conference, and a senior thesis project and poster that I also presented at the conference. Otherwise my research experience is limited to class proje
  12. I just haven't narrowed down my list of schools and figured it might be better to take it either way? I wanted to wait to see what I'll get on the general GRE to know what programs I would be best suited for but it sounds like I should just look at which schools actually require the psychology subject test. Thanks!!
  13. I'm deciding what date to take the gre general test and the psychology subject test in preparation to apply for clinical PhD programs for Fall 2020. I'm thinking I'll take the general test mid-September, which would give me three months to study, but since my only options for the psychology subject test are either September or October I wanted to ask others if I would be fine taking both the general test and the subject test within the same week(s)? Or if it would be better to take the general test in September and the subject in October, though that would be cutting it close for getting my ps
  14. I recently have been looking into PhD programs for clinical psychology or counseling psychology, and I am a little lost in deciding/finding which programs to apply for. I know a big thing is faculty research areas, but other than that I have no idea what to look for, how to know if I would be competitive or not, or how many to apply for. I'm graduating with my undergrad in psychology in May with a 3.9 GPA, senior thesis with a written publication and conference poster, and some research experience but nothing in a formal lab setting (small school, no lab research opportunities). Any advice is
  15. Thank you! There was definitely some info in the PDF that was helpful. I'll graduate with my bachelor's in May and take a gap year before grad school so just trying to get a start on where I want to go from there,
