  1. Thank you much! I truly appreciate your kind words. It was definitely a lesson in boundary-setting in professional relationships (extremely difficult to do with this type of person).
  2. Yeah that's what I've started doing. Patiently awaiting 8 responses from schools which didn't specify the format on their site. Lol!
  3. Dear Psychology PhD/PsyD Applicants, For the Statement of Purpose, some schools clarify length, for example "1,000-1,500 words", or 1-2 pages double spaced. However, other schools write something along the lines of "2-3 pages" for the SOP. Is there a standard for the format for the SOP in those instances where the format is not specified? Thank you!
  4. Question for you all- Does it look bad to apply to multiple programs within one institution? For example, some schools have a Clinical Psychology PhD, a Counseling Psychology PhD, and a Clinical or Counseling Psychology PsyD. Would it look bad or work against me to apply to more than one or even all three programs? All comments are much appreciated. Thank you!
  5. Hi All, I am thinking that if programs are accepting only 10 or so students for PhD programs, it makes sense that they would check references for every research experience/employment/internship each of the top picks has before offering them a spot.... I have 2.5 years of research experience. In the first lab I was working part time as a research assistant. Unfortunately, the PI running this study turned out to be a nightmare. To be very clear- this was a mutual opinion of everyone who worked for this PI. She would frequently scream at us over the phone when things went wrong (which
  6. Hey thanks for the great advice. I think I will include the Research Skills section and if anyone asks, I'm happy to talk at length about the skills I taught myself on YouTube- but just leave out the YouTube part. Maybe talk about how much I'd love to use those programs in a research study such as _____. Or even name a few well-known studies in the field who used those analytic methods. All that will require is a bit of homework prior to an interview. Okay cool, so I will add the EEG Device grant. Yes we collected data, it was interesting because it records the users response in real tim
  7. I'd rather not say on the thread but if you want to PM me I can send you the link
  8. Have you noticed how seemingly personal the PsyD essays (equivalent to the PhD statement of purpose) are? They seem to be asking for autobiographical information which feels strange to me because I have read on so many occasions that self-disclosure about something personal is not appropriate in the context of applications. For example, some of the prompts might say something like, "Describe an ongoing conflict you've had with a person, or someone who you've had feelings of ambivalence toward. What is your understanding of your feelings toward this person. What has happened in your life which
  9. I started a thread, "How Important is it to be Published" which got some feedback if you want to check that out. https://forum.thegradcafe.com/topic/125497-how-important-is-it-to-be-published/ Have you thought about adding some "safety schools" to your list? Although safety school isn't really a term that applies to Psychology PhD applications because they are so incredibly competitive and so many factors determine who is accepted, when they are accepted, and why they are accepted. But perhaps if you're already applying to so many schools and presumably preparing multiple St
  10. Under my "Research Experience" section on my CV, I am including two part-time (20 hour per week) positions as a research assistant at two separate labs, 2018-2019 year for the first lab and 2019-2020 year for the second lab. I am detailing all of my duties for those positions in brief descriptions, but I haven't been responsible for entering data. I've simply collected data as part of research procedures as a research assistant, but haven't used, for example, RedCap, Qualtrics, or SPSS while working at those labs. Unfortunately, I didn't really get the opportunity to take part in research desi
  11. That's great! I think its so important to get clarity about what your strengths and weaknesses are. Part of why this forum is so helpful. Good luck this round!
  12. I found this journal, the Journal of Wellness, which is a free (no fees!), open-access, peer-reviewed journal accepting submissions. They advertise a quick turn-around from submission to publication. https://journalofwellness.com/ https://journalofwellness.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/JWellness_Handout.pdf "JWellness will publish research and editorials to enhance resilience, physical strength, nutritional completeness, disease prevention, and mental health.

  14. I don’t have any poster presentations, unfortunately. Honestly, I’ve worked 40 hours or more per week throughout my academic career due to having to support myself financially while living in NYC where the cost of living is crazy expensive. So it’s made it hard to go above and beyond in terms of publications and poster presentations. I’m lucky to have what I have on my resume and CV as is... Its challenging to try to sound like a good fit for a POI without publications, no? Because in lieu of more papers, isn’t my only chance to really make a case for myself in my SOP and possibly intervi
