  1. Any advice on what to wear to an interview? Especially if pant suits are really unflattering to your figure?
  2. A poll to assess where in the interview notification process Pacific University currently stands.
  3. Hi all. What a stressful time of year! I have high scores, a near-perfect GPA, and glowing letters of rec, several posters, and an in-progress paper, so a few months ago I thought I had a pretty good shot. After spending more time on this website, I think I might have been very mistaken. I don't have a psychology degree. My degree is in Communication Sciences & Disorders (aka speech-language pathology), and I have only worked with PIs and faculty within that world. In undergrad, I volunteered in an autism lab, run by an SLP with a large background in neuroscience. I presented my own poster at a regional conference. After graduating, I spent a few months working as a nurses' aid in a hospital, where I saw many patients with mental illness. Then, I started as a research assistant in a motor speech lab. My PI is big in the world of speech and is the director of our small school's research program. I have 3 posters (one first author, and more psych-related) and one in progress pub (a collab with people in Brazil) that I am helping write/revise. In grad school, I'd like to study anxiety and depression or aging/dementia. I'm worried I may not even get any interviews because my previous work doesn't line up with this subject matter, since the bulk of my research experience has been in people with ASD, ALS, and face transplant patients. I do have experience with TMS and neuromodulation, but we don't do neuroimaging or psych testing. I really think what's putting me behind is either my lack of experience in the psych world or my lack of publications. So my question is, what should I spend the next year doing? Do I leave my lab (been here for a year) to find an RA job in a lab that actually researches what I'm interested in? Do I keep this job and focus on doing even more independent work, helping doc students write and publish papers, and running more participants (we're starting a project on kids with autism soon). Do I find an RA job at one of the schools I want to attend and move across the country? I absolutely don't want to live where I am now, but it's a city with a ton of research opportunities - volunteer and paid. What are your thoughts on how I could make myself more competitive? Secondarily... what do you guys think my chances are this cycle? I know it's useless to ask at this point, but I'd love the insight because I don't have any clinical psych people around to ask! My stats: GPA: 3.94 (at an arts school) GRE: 166V, 158Q, 5.0W Psych GRE: 770
  4. Looks like some people have been contacted for phone interviews by PIs...does anyone know if this is the standard? Or perhaps just PIs that have multiple applicants interested in working with them? Wondering if no phone call means your application is no longer in the running.
  5. 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!
  6. I am currently a Psychology major (junior) and am stressing about whether or not to withdraw from a class that I might get a C in. It’s been a roller coaster deciding my career path but I have finally decided on attending a Ph. D. program for clinical (or forensic) psychology after my undergrad. It should be noted that I also plan on either doing Post Bacc or getting my Masters to boost my resume with research and letters of rec to further show my dedication to applying to a Clinical Psychology Ph. D. program (as I know they are very competitive). I started out planning on Med School, but Sophomore year I changed my path to Physicians Assistant school, withdrawing from my Physics class which I was about to receive a C in. I changed my major to Psychology (because I loved psychology) and planned on just filling my electives with the science classes necessary for PA programs (i.e. organismal bio, organic chem, etc.). Here I am, now a junior, and after getting into my psychology classes and assisting with some research, I decided that psychology was my passion. BUT I am in a crisis as I am currently enrolled in Microbiology (as one of my electives) and I may get a C in the course. I have a 3.87 but, if I receive a C I will be bumped down to a 3.75 and that worries me for applying to not only a masters/post bacc programs but also a PhD programs. I know it is still a relatively high GPA but I really want to increase my competitiveness as much as possible and strive to get as close to a 4.0 as I can. I guess my question is, if I withdraw from this class, will graduate programs (masters/post bacc/phd) care? I would have two Ws on my transcript and although they are not considered to be classes relevant to my major, it still worries me. PLEASE HELP!
  7. I've seen a few of these for other programs, so I thought it might be good to start a thread to peer-edit personal statements for those of us who are applying to psychology and related programs! Let me know if you would like to swap, or if you would be able to offer me some advice! Thanks.
  8. Does anyone want to swap and read over each other’s statements? Or anyone interested in reading mine/making suggestions. I’m super proud of it I’m just looking to maybe make it flow better. Any advice is welcome!
  9. Hello, I am finishing up my master's degree in experimental psychology with a 3.07 GPA. I was juggling managing a neuroscience lab, taking courses, working on my thesis, working for the VA, and was also an RA in a psych lab at Stanford running experiments with fMRI. My undergraduate GPA is 3.5. Experince: 6 labs as an RA (ranging from 3 months to a year) 1 lab managing position 1 1st author publication 2 2nd author publications 5 coauthor posters 2 1st author posters Without studying my baseline GRE scores are 150 verbal and 147 quantitative. I am scheduled to take it near the end of the month. I am wondering if all these experiences can compensate for my low master's GPA? I am applying to clinical psychology doctoral programs this cycle.
  10. Hi! Growing up I have had multiple chronic illnesses that have shaped my life. In recent years I have been able to be a full time college student without the illnesses getting in the way. After getting my PhD I want to work with children with chronic illness and other health issues. Some mentors have told me to include my health history in my personal statement while others have warned me to avoid it at all cost. Since it directly relates to my research interest and future career goals, should I include my medical history in my application? Thanks!
  11. Hey! So I'm just about done with my first draft of my SOP (I know, I'm pretty late in the game) and going to get it reviewed by some advisors this week. After my second or third draft, would anyone (possibly psychology majors) be willing to exchange SOPs so we can give each other advice?
  12. Hi to all, I have been looking for a place where those applying for Clinical Psych programs in Canada can talk to others in the same boat and figure out together who has been contacted by which University and when. If this works as I hope, this post will help us cope with the anxiety of waiting for schools to contact us. So let me be the first to say that no schools, out of the 7 I applied for, have contacted me yet. I'll post again when I hear from any other program (no matter if I get good or bad news). Also, if anyone knows of a similar post somewhere else I would really appreciate if you would let me (us?) know. Thanks!
  13. I am planning on applying to clinical psych programs in the near future (either this year or next). I am currently working at a research lab as a research specialist doing clinical work/research visits. My GRE scores are 1190 and my GPA is a 3.89. What are my chances of getting into ANY clinical psych program? Ideally, I want a program with a child focus. Is it a waste of my time to apply? I have a lot of research experience, no publications yet but hopefully soon, one REALLY great recommendation and hopefully a couple more to come. What are your thoughts? Thanks!
