Hi - I am reaching out for some advice. I'm planning to apply to clinical psychology PhD programs for the fall of 2020. I have a very competitive GPA, great letters of rec from mentors and years of both college and post grad research experience, but I am lacking in terms of my GRE scores. Unfortunately, after a number of attempts on the GRE, I still score slightly below 50th percentile in both Verbal and Math. English is my second language. Despite the very poor scores, over the years, I published 4 first authors publications, along with co-authoring about 20 other papers. I have also designed and currently run an independent project. My struggles with the GRE is really bringing me down as I feel hopeless that professors won't even consider my successes and potential due to this one limitation. I'm wondering if any of you have any thoughts on what are my chances of getting into a funded clinical psych PhD program? I've had interviews in the past, usually with the help of networking, but I wonder if my applications were simply filtered out in the past due to such low scores. I'm very passionate about research and clinical assessments and cannot wait to pursue graduate studies, but my lack of ability to bring up my scores has been holding me back. Any advice or suggestions would be great! Thank you in advance!
I am a 4th year English student currently applying to MA and PhD programs. On some applications, they ask "Have you ever been expelled, dismissed, suspended, placed on probation, or otherwise subject to disciplinary sanction by any school, college, or university?" I was suspended from high school for a day due to a situation where I slapped a boy who had been harassing me. Should I include this information? They ask for incidents in "any school," but a singular event that happened over eight years ago seems trivial. There was no arrest, just a single day of suspension. I had no trouble whatsoever in college. Is this information still relevant? How heavily will it impact my chances of admission?
