    I-O Psychology PhD
  1. You can work in an applied I/O setting with either degree. As with most disciplines, however, the PhD will provide greater earning potential; and, if it’s applied research you’re interested in, greater autonomy.

  3. If you haven't already, consider using an apartment locator service. They are generally free and fairly efficient. You provide them with specifications, they provide you with prospect lists (often for nicer properties that don't advertise on the most commonly used services). Hope this is helpful.

My initial acceptance information was communicated informally via e-mail and I later received the admission/funding from the department. However, the letter from graduate admissions came months later (after I'd visited for recruitment and all). Sometimes there's no substitute for manual letter production and mailing. Fret not, I'm sure your situation will work out fine.
  5. I accepted an offer for the PhD program in Industrial Organizational Psychology (likely minoring in Quantitative Psychology). Has anyone begun searching for housing yet? If so, how have you fared in that endeavor?
