  1. Hi everyone! I'm going to be applying to clinical psychology programs in Canada this year (for Fall 2022 start) and there are a few different topics and areas of research that interest me. What I'm wondering is whether different research topics and areas within clinical psychology differ in terms of competitiveness, and if so, which seem to be more and less competitive (could be broad areas of research or specific topics/disorders)? I've heard that labs/PIs in certain areas of research tend to expect more of applicants in terms of experiences, publications, etc. than others, and that some
  2. Ugh.. Once again I didn't get any interviews for PhD programs (which is kind of understandable because the programs I applied to are highly competitive + with COVID there have been funding cuts and more applicants than past years) but after two rounds of applying, coming into my applications strong and 0 interviews both times, I'm feeling pretty defeated. I have a strong cv with 2 pubs, several posters and 4 of them are first author, and 5 years of research experience. My undergrad GPA was a 3.5 and I did a masters and got about the same (3.6-I had some mental health issues which took a dig at
  3. Hi everyone, I got waitlisted at my first-choice program at LSU and I am struggling with coping. To give more context, I believe I am #2 on the waitlist, so I would get an offer if the other applicant declined, or if the POI receives additional funding for a second student. They applied for a grant in the fall and are waiting to hear back from them. I feel as if I have a better chance of waiting until April 15th for the POI to get funding because I highly doubt anyone would decline an offer from this program and POI - it's unimaginable for me. What might be some reasons for applicants to
  4. I'm starting this thread so that we can get to know each other and (hopefully) see each other on interview day! The application deadline was due today and I am so relieved that my letters of recommendation were able to be submitted on time. Now, all we have to do is wait it out! I read online that we should be hearing about interviews in December or January, so best of luck to all of us!
  5. Hello everyone! Most applications were due today so congrats on getting them in! Now we need to sit back, relax, feel the anxiety, and wait for interview offers. I started this this thread so that we can give each other emotional support during this time. I know I'm an anxious and excited ball of emotions and will probably be checking my inbox daily for the next couple of months. I'm sure many of you are feeling the same way! May we wish each other all the best.
  6. Hello All -A little about me, I am currently in the process of interviewing at Midwestern and just finished an interview at Adler. I am pursuing a Psy.D and leaning towards a neuropsychology emphasis to prepare me to work with a wide array of mental-diagnoses and patients that span from adolescents to adults. I am very open to what clinical setting to work in but at some point in my career I would like to work with the prison population. -I am looking for someone who attends either of these schools or has proficient knowledge in them to help me weigh out some pros and cons. Midwester
  7. Is anyone else applying to UCSB's clinical/counseling psychology program? if so, how many pages is your statement of purpose? the overall grad programs website said it should be longer than 2 pages, but when i emailed the department admissions they said 1-2 pages double spaced... my current SOP for them is about 2.5 pages. i'm struggling with the ambiguity!!
  8. I'm planning to apply to a few clinical programs next year to begin in Fall 2022. I'm interested in the MSc at Acadia, PsyD at UPEI, and PsyD at Memorial. I'm hoping someone can provide me with some insight into the importance of undergrad stats grades for these applications. In my intro stats course I got an A+, but only got a B in advanced stats. I've been told by some that a B is not good enough, while others say it is perfectly fine. Should I be concerned about this grade assuming everything else in my application is good? Thanks in advance!
  9. I didn't get any acceptances last year, from the 3 PsyDs and 5 PhDs I applied to. I'm reapplying this year, to PsyD only. For the schools that I'm applying to for the second time, I don't want all 3 of my LORs to be the same as last year. The only new person who can write me one is the person for whom I nanny. I'm applying for child psych specializations and want to be a clinical child psychologist, so this isn't too far from the field, but it's not clinical work at all. The mom has a graduate degree and writes grant applications for a living, so she'll be able to write a good LOR for me. The
  10. Hi everyone! This is my first time posting on this board after lurking here for a while. I graduated with a BA in psychology this May and intend to apply to clinical psych PhD programs for 2022. I am about to start working as a full-time clinical research coordinator at a well-known research hospital. I am really excited to get more research experience and further develop my interest in clinical psychology! However, I am also pretty nervous. I will be working remotely for the foreseeable future, and feel anxious about how to connect with my PI and the other coordinators through a computer
  11. Hi everyone! I'm applying to clinical psychology programs this fall and I'm getting my list of PI's together in order to narrow down my list of schools and I have a question.. I was wondering if anyone has any advice about applying to a program and indicating two mentors? Some of my schools have two PI's that are taking students that i'm interested in working with. Does that look bad to indicate two different PI's on my application/statement of purpose? Thanks everyone and good luck!!!!
  12. Hi everyone, I've created a list of potential clinical psych programs to apply to but am nervous because of my undergrad gpa. I am a senior now and have a gpa of 3.14 (mainly because of family-related issues my first and early second year, along with my mediocre grades in my premed classes which has tanked my gpa despite better grades the following years) from a fairly rigorous and selective private university. I work at the medical school as a research assistant in the genetics department, along with as a research assistant in a psychology lab (where my lab is about to submit my research for
  13. Hello everyone! I'm getting ready to apply for doctoral programs in counseling and clinical psychology (my interests overlap in both fields and is explained in my personal statement) and I'm starting to think about who to ask for my letters of recommendation! I've been a research assistant for about 4 years now and can think of four professors to ask who will be able to provide strong letters of recommendation. However, most applications state to list three recommenders. Would it help to list a fourth? Or should I only submit three? If you would only recommend three, could you help me eliminat
  14. Hi! I've looked at quite a few threads for fully funded and partially funded psychology master's degree programs. Does anyone know of any fully or partially funded clinical psychology programs? A lot of the threads had responses of people who did not want to disclose their institution because they didn't want to be identified. If you feel comfortable, feel free to message me, or I can message you. I got into a great clinical psychology master's program in a past cycle. While they did offer a small assistantship, the program did not have tuition waivers or scholarships (tuition was quite e
  15. Hi everyone! So, I've struck a bit of luck -- my mom's boss is offering to buy me a new laptop, which I desperately need! Now, because my budget is not an issue, I want to be strategic and get a laptop that will suit me best in graduate school. I am currently reapplying to clinical psych phd programs. What's the best laptop for statistical analysis programs, and these programs in general? Any advice is helpful!! - k@tie
  16. Hi! I'm planning on applying to clinical psychology phd programs in the fall, and I was wondering if anyone has heard if PhD programs have waived the GRE due to COVID (like many schools are waiving the SAT/ACT for undergrad)? I emailed ETS about their testing centers being open but I haven't heard back... To be completely honest I don't even feel comfortable going into a testing center with the current covid pandemic 😕
  17. Hello! I am practically new to this website, and have a few questions and concerns. I have two bachelor's degrees: one in Psychology, the other in History and Jewish Studies with a minor in English Literature, which I will earn this May. I also pursued master's-level coursework in conjunction with five months of neuroscience research; however, that was cut short because of my grandmother's death (she provided emotional and financial support). Regrettably, due to personal and serious health problems (I have a disability), my cumulative gpa for my first degree was a 3.32, but my cumulative gpa f
  18. What are people's thoughts on contacting admissions to check on your status or to ask if all acceptance decisions have been extended post interview? If you know some people have already recieved acceptances, is it okay to ask or could that possibly "red flag" you?
  19. Hi Everyone, I have been an active member of this forum for a while now. It has helped me through the application process This cycle and has tormented me with each interview results coming in that I didn’t get lol. Regardless, I made it this application cycle and after 21 applications, 4 interviews (I had 9 but went to 4) and 4 offers, I’ve made my decision!!!! Well that was two weeks ago and now I’m just sitting here waiting. Now what do I do? To my fellow admitted people, what are you doing to pass the time lol? To anyone in a clinical or counseling psychology Ph
  20. I'm well aware I am not the first person to ask this question. How important is it to have your research out on publication? (More so, would it make that much difference if this is an international student?) I have been taking gap year and I will be applying this cycle (December) to Clinical Psychology and some Counseling psychology programs that are fully funded. I honestly don't think I can pay for grad school myself. I'm still unfamiliar with the posting guidelines of this website so please feel free to leave a comment if you think this post belongs somewhere else! I graduated last yea
  21. Hi all!! I’m suddenly all confused and completely uncertain whether I want to stick to pursuing Clinical PhD with Forensic focus or Criminal justice PhD. I used to be so sure that I want to go for clinical psychology. But now I actually think of it, the main reason why I was so attracted to clinical psych is bc of full funding programs and it’s relatively solid future. My ultimate goal is to be a practitioner working in a private institutions or government agencies directly helping the victims (and studying the effects of crime on victims and sometimes mental health of criminals)
  22. I've been accepted into UIUC's Clinical/Community Psychology PhD program, but am afraid I don't have enough insight on the experience from a grad student's POV. This is a desperate cry for help---Anyone out there know about UIUC's psychology department (i.e. the feel of it, rigor, culture, etc.) in general? Also, any helpful replies about the broader Urbana/Champaign area, the professors, the psych department, or the stipend are all welcome! Thank you
  23. We should be hearing about interviews pretty soon! Here's a template for the info to post that was used last year: School: Type: PhD/PsyD Date of invite: Type of invite: Mass email, email from POI, phone call, etc. Interview date(s): Good luck, everyone!
  24. *Hi I'm just venting here but feel free to chime in about how much you have felt fucked over by this process* I'm just very upset about how this whole process is going for me so far. I have three in-person interviews lined up but my coworkers who are exactly the same as me in almost every way have 5+. I really don't understand. I've done everything right and I feel like I should have more interviews. For context, I applied to 11 schools ranging from more "bottom tier" to top programs. I have one bottom tier interview, one mid-tier, and one top-tier lined up. I worked in multiple lab
  25. Hi everyone, Im in the middle of the process of applying to clinical psych phd's and I'm really starting to freak out. I'm only applying to funded programs, so they're more competitive (not outrageously but most are top 20). I graduated with a BA in psych and i'm in a masters program now. My undergrad overall gpa was 3.48 but psych GPA was 3.8. My masters has been a really challenging program (intentionally not taking grade-inflated classes and also working in addition to being in a lab), so my gpa is about a 3.6. I have really strong letters of rec, about 4 years of research experience w
