My independent M.A. research project was social psychological and statistical (and I will submit paper for review soon), but my undergrad research experience, while interesting (e.g., prison ethnography), will need to be cleverly framed as s
  7. Hey everyone, first time posting! Would anyone be willing to give their perspective on my applicant profile? I apologize if this is an annoying ask, but I’m truly uncertain about my chances, and any feedback would be a huge help. Thank you so much in advance. I don’t have a formal psych background. I studied economics in undergrad, and am now in UC Irvine’s sociology PhD program (will exit with a terminal M.A.).
