  1. Hey guys, I've been applying to Lab Manager/Research Coordinator type positions to get more experience for grad school, and my undergraduate professor suggested to me that I perhaps apply to some Master's programs because I switched in my 3rd year into Psychology, and my GPA is a bit lower because I'm coming from an Engineering Background. I can't afford a Master's program that costs money/that I couldn't support myself from. Does anyone know schools that have Social Psychology/General Psych Master's programs that allow you to research/TA in order to pay for your tuition? Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello, I've been lurking around here for a little while and really appreciate all the great advice you guys give. Thought I'd ask this question here because I'm in a bit of a weird situation - my Overall GPA is pretty meh (3.3 Cumulative) due to my major being Engineering for my Freshman and Sophomore Years of College, even though my Psych Gpa is a lot better (3.6). My GREs are pretty good - 162 Verbal (90th percentile) 161 Quant (78th percentile) 4.5 Analytical Writing (81st percentile) I have strong recommendations and research experience, but am unsure what level of Social/Political Psych program I could apply due given my past grades in engineering pulling down my cumulative GPA. Just wondering if anyone has experience about how much schools will overlook this sort of thing? I'm currently playing with the idea of programs like Michigan, Minnesota, or Boston University, but am not sure if I would be automatically eliminated from contention due to hidden GPA cutoffs. Hope this is an alright place to post this sort of question, I really would be grateful for thoughts from someone with more experience.
