Hi everyone, I am a senior psychology major (applying for I-O psychology Ph.D program for Fall 2013) and I just found out that I got accepted into the McNair Scholars Program! I am really excited about this opportunity and was wondering if there are fellow McNair students/alumni out there that would be willing to provide some feedback on their experiences. More specifically: What were the most important things you gained from McNair going into graduate school? How has being a McNair scholar benefitted you during graduate school? Has anyone obtained the McNair fellowship during grad school? How is McNair perceived by adcomms? Anything else you feel like I would benefit by knowing/doing as I start the program? Thanks in advance for any/all feedback!
