  1. 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?
  2. 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.D program, do you have any advice on what I should do to prepare myself for the doctoral grind. General or detailed answers are welcomed. thanks you guys!
  3. 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 year with all types of honors in both of my majors and have been working on my GRE and was working as a tutor on the side to keep my living expenses. My GRE score is both on 90 percentiles and GPA is 3.7. I worked as an undergrad research assistant for a year in clinical psych lab (we developed a scale for clinical disorder) in my senior year. At the same time I worked in a different lab in a different department also as an undergrad RA for 2 years that is not really relevant to my interests but I knew the professor and learned quite a lot of skills. I also completed a honors thesis upon the completion of my undergrad study. My three LORs will come from 1. a person (not a professor but in academia) who directed my thesis and those who I have been working as RA. (1. professor from my second department who knows me really well and 3. one grad student and a retired professor in clinical psychology dept. co-signing the last letter) Although I'm kind of worried that some of my LORs will come from non-psychology people, they happen to know me for the longest time and very very well. But the biggest problem is that I DO NOT have any publication. My professors from undergrad encouraged me to submit my thesis to at least undergrad journals but I'm just not confident that it will get accepted especially I know there were some mistakes. I presented at a regional conference for my thesis but it wasn't in psychology department. No posters, nothing. So now I'm done with GRE, I need something to fill my gap year and boost my resume. I originally was going to work as a full-time RA at one of the university in my home country but due to unforeseen circumstance, I won't have the full-time position anymore. I reached out to several professors in my home country and they told me although they will be more than happy to take me in as an RA, my duties won't be that much different from the ones I did as an undergrad RA as their PhD/Masters students will get the priorities for all the funding and resources. In that case, it's not impossible but it will be very difficult to put my name as an author. So far, I can only think of these three options 1. Volunteer as a research assistant (pretty much same as undergrad RA and help the lab members with their projects in hopes that I can put my name as a third or fourth author. + get a side job to save money 2. Get a clinical setting job (full-time, decent pay) in a private clinical practice and see if they have any research project that I can help on the side) 3. Get a research job that deals with clinical population but not clinical psychology-related. More like a pharmaceutical or researching company (this will be heavily research oriented but it won't be from clinical psychology) I don't know how much of my status as an international student would change how important it is to have publication but I need as many advice as possible. If you guys have any other ideas please help me, I feel so lost.
  4. 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) Don’t get me wrong. I love research and I always have fun with it. But I’m just not sure if I want to spend next 5-7 years away from what I really want to study. however, at the same time, all my past efforts have been geared to clinical psych programs and all my knowledge about grad school application is based on clinical psych so I don’t know how much of those knowledge will be applicable to criminal justice or forensic psychology. If you were me and was really interested in working with crime victims (victimology) and criminal personality, but need funding at least for tuition and fees, would you choose clinical psychology (hopefully I can work with a mentor who has interests in forensic psychology) at a prestigious university or just apply for specialized forensic psychology programs in a less well known university?
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. *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 labs during undergrad starting freshman year at an R1 university with a top 10 clinical psych department Conducted an honors thesis with a very up-and-coming professor who loves me and wrote a stellar LOR (so she said) Am now at a post-bacc research assistant at an Ivy League med school/hospital Have extensive clinical training through my work and past internships/volunteer positions Have one first-author pub and another first-author under review Have one second-author pub and 3 others under review Have one third author pub under review Had great LOR's from my PI at my job and another PI who I helped coordinate her study for 3.75 overall UG GPA, 4.0 psych GPA 2 first-author posters at two national conferences multiple co-authored posters/symposiums for national/international conferences GRE: V: 167-170 M: 156-158 W: 4.5-5.0 Had my personal statement looked over my my UG PI who said it was great and I had very clear research interests. *I am bragging a lot on here but I promise you I didn't brag this much in my app materials if anyone was wondering I just don't understand what I did wrong and why others got so many more interviews. I feel like you can do everything in your power to be an excellent candidate and still get screwed while others who did not work as hard get a shit ton of interviews? (not saying that everyone who got more interviews than me didn't work hard but I literally spent every weekend doing research this past year and a half)
  8. 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 with numerous posters, and additionally my current masters thesis is a data analysis that my mentor wants to submit for publication. I have one official publication and two publications that are currently under review (one which I am first authoring). My biggest concern is I feel like my statements, research experience and letters of rec are the only thing my application has to offer.... In addition to my meh GPA, I am continuously getting low GRE scores, even with practice. I know I'm not stupid, but I've never been the best at standardized testing 😕 Most of the programs I'm applying to are a good research fit, but I'm just scared by GRE will be the nail in my coffin and will immediately deter programs from even looking at me. I guess I'd just like to know some honest opinions, or if anyone else out there has had/or is having a similar experience to me? They really expect us PhD applicants to walk on water lol 😕 I appreciate any and all advice or comments.
  9. 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!
  10. Hello! Does anyone know when the applications for clinical psych open at U of M? I wanted to get a head start and just get the very basics out of the way but their application system is a little weird and isn't giving me the option of SEEING how to apply to the clinical psych program. I'm either doing something wrong or I'm on the wrong site. Any help is welcome (:
  11. Hi! I'm hoping to get in to an MA/PhD in clinical psychology in Canada, and I could use a little advice from anyone who's applied before or has gotten in! A little bit of background, I have a BSc in neuroscience and English (yes weird combo) that I finished in 2015 in Canada. My grades weren't amazing, particularly in my second year, I did quite well in my final year but my GPA when I graduated was still only 3.0. I got into a MSc Health Psychology degree in the UK and got a 2:1 (which is about a B+ final grade). I've been working in research in the UK since my MSc, I've been a research assistant for about three years, I've worked on two major RCTs and am also a trial manager for an international european study. I have three co-authorships (two more being submitting in the fall) and two first authorships in progress (one being peer reviewed now, one manuscript nearly ready to submit) and working on a 3rd first-author paper but that won't be submitted before December as we're still in the middle of the analysis. I’ve presented one poster at a national conference in the UK and I have some teaching experience in the uni I work in now. My GREs have been fine, I think I can do better and will rewrite them before applying again, my subject GREs were 89th percentile so I will probably leave those as is. I know that my undergrad grades are the biggest thing bringing my application down, but there’s nothing really I can do about that anymore. I’m considering doing a postgrad certificate or diploma in psychology so that I can 1) Improve my overall grades and 2) get courses that I’m missing in psychology that might help my application (even though there was a lot of overlap in my neuroscience degree with the psych courses, I didn’t take social psychology for example). Does that sound like it might help, or will it not matter because it’s not a BSc? My other option is doing a PhD in the UK on the project I’m currently workining on, but it’s not a clinical degree. I could theoretically do a clinical MA afterwards, but MA psychologists can’t be licensed in certain areas in Canada, and it seems silly to do a PhD in the UK and then another MA/PhD in Canada afterwards. On the other hand, it also seems silly to decline the opportunity to do a PhD in a project I like with no security that I’ll get into a program in Canada later. I really want to do clinical psychology because I love the patient aspect and with my background in health psych I would really like to work in a hospital setting or with people living with chronic illnesses. And from the research I'm doing now, I’ve realized that I'll need to be a clinician to do the research I want to do in the future, not just be supervised by one. As you can probably tell from this post I am very conflicted and would appreciate any advice or considerations! Thanks!
  12. I am an international applicant to the clinical psychology Ph.D. program in the USdrag the whole impression down. I recently took the GRE general test twice and got the following scores: First one: V 159 (83%) Q 170 (96%) AW 4.5 (81%) Second one: V 164 (94%) Q169 (95%) AW 4 (57%) I am happy about my second V and Q but really concerned that the low percentile of my AW will drag the whole impression. I am applying to clinical psychology which I know is a writing heavy discipline, and the writing could be even more important for an international student. I am not sure if I should report both of the score or only one of them. I have research and review paper publication and I know at least one of my referees will be able to confirm my writing ability. ....Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Hey guys, need some help figuring out who to ask to write my letters. I have 5 options. 1. Psych professor I have done quite a bit of research with, knows me well, has taught me in class, and went to my first choice school for his Ph.D. as well (not sure if that holds any weight). No clinical background though. 2. Psych professor (not had me in class) I've only known for a few months but have worked extensively with. I don't know him quite as well, but I know he can speak for my research experience and work ethic. Has clinical background. 3. Psych professor (not had me in class) I work with a lot, not really doing research, but helping him complete tasks such as edit the psych book he is writing. Has clinical background. Can definitely speak on my work ethic. 4. Religious studies professor. Relevant because I'm wanting to specialize in religion/spirituality. I have had him for 3 classes, talk with him frequently. He knows me very well and will definitely write a good letter. Can speak for my participation in classes/discussions and writing capabilities. 5. Supervisor for my job as a general psychology instructor. Not sure how valuable teaching experience would be.
  14. hello everyone!! i recently graduated undergrad with a psych degree, 2 years research experience and for the next year will be working full time as an RA for the same lab I was with in undergrad. applied for Clinical PhD programs this past cycle with no luck but oh well . I am currently trying to decide several things and was wondering if anyone has input!! the graduate student i work with has been pushing me to retake the GRE and apply again this cycle. my scores were 162 (91%) verbal, 156 quant (61%) and 5 (90%) AW. I know my quant score could stand to go up quite a bit but a lot of personal things have come up this summer (in addition to working full time) that are preventing me from devoting a lot of time to studying. I am worried that not only will I not be able to improve it in time but that it might actually go down and I will have wasted time and money on it. the other option i have come up with is to take another year off and try to get a new lab manager position in a different lab. this would solve some other weaknesses in my application (3rd LOR was not stellar, all my research experience is in one lab) but that's if i even manage to find a position. i'm scared I'll get to that point and not be able to find another job and then actually be out of options. not really sure if there is a question in there lol i'm just really unsure what to do. am I being too paranoid and should I just say what the hell and try to apply this cycle? or do you think it's worth it to take another year off to improve my application? also is my quant score really that bad or do you think it can be balanced by strengthening my research experience? (3.89 undergrad gpa, did a senior thesis + 1 conference and 2 coming up + 1 definite manuscript and 1 or 2 more possible but won't know until after these applications are due, 2 years clinical experience)
  15. Hey everyone -- Just browsing this forum has been helpful as there is a lot of bad or misleading information online about various psychology/social work/counseling programs. I was hoping others could help with some advice about my specific objective and situation. Application competitiveness aside, I'd appreciate any thoughts about/answers to the questions below. Thank you in advance! Objective: I'd like to become a clinical psychotherapist, transitioning out of my work in public health (social determinants of health, more specifically) to direct clinical practice. Situation: Ideally, I would like to complete a master's or doctoral program part-time (nights/weekend/etc., or distance) while maintaining full-time employment/income. I have lived in DC for 7 years and would like to remain here for the entirety of my program. I already hold a Master of Public Health from Emory University (Policy Concentration) and a Bachelor of Arts from Penn State University (English/Writing and Health Policy) I have been told by several therapist friends (ranging from MSWs to PhDs and MDs) to pursue a (second) master's degree as that is all that is needed to practice as a therapist. They have all emphasized that you can earn a significant amount in private practice, especially in a market like D.C. I would qualify as a non-traditional student in that my professional and academic background are outside of social work, psychology, etc. I have worked in health policy (4 years total, including some mental health policy work and nonprofit board service) as well as entrepreneurship (founded and ran a startup for 3 years). Questions: Are there any venerable part-time and/or online PsyD or PhD programs that I should consider? If I could complete a doctoral program in a reasonable timeframe (likely a PsyD given my primary focus on practice), that might be preferable to a master's programs. The challenge I've seen is that most of the programs I've researched require full-time students (i.e. no evenings or weekend classes). Among the various MSW/MA/MS programs in clinical social work, mental health counseling, etc., do you have any recommendation if my end goal is clinical psychotherapy? Given my above objective and situation, do you have any other thoughts about vetting programs for fit (i.e. things to look for as I research programs)? Is there any possibility that I could acquire merit-based aid for master's programs like these or a part-time PsyD? Given my location in DC, are there any specific programs/departments you would recommend? Again, many thanks for any help you can provide!
  16. I am looking at becoming a Licensed Psychologist and completing an APA accredited program. My end goal is to work in the medical field and work/research disability topics (emphasis on diagnosis and assessment of ASD.) When I begin a PhD program I will have completed a Master's in Clinical Psychology and be licensed as a therapist. I am interested in hearing from any other individuals with disabilities that are applying to, currently attending, or formerly attended an APA accredited Psychology program. I feel like there are many considerations and decisions I have to make, and as my disabilities are mainly medically related aspects such as health insurance and schedule are something I have to think about. I have been told that programs cannot discriminate based on disability, but I definitely worry about keeping up with the sequence of courses/practicum etc... and balancing everything. If anyone has suggestions (even if you are attending a program and do not live with disability) they are greatly appreciated! Isn't adulting fun?!
  17. Hello! I wanted to hear opinions on what is most important when selecting labs / mentors to apply to since it is such a huge decision in the application process. Is it most important that you match the mentors topics of interest or the methods they use to do their research? Of course having both are ideal! Sometimes, however, there just aren't a lot of people doing exactly what you want to do. So is it more important to connect with a mentor that can teach you the skills you want to learn even if their topic isn't a perfect match or is it more important to find a mentor within the topic you are interested in to build the broader knowledge / foundation and look for other opportunities to build knowledge in the specific skills you want to use to research that topic? Should my applications be a mix of both? Or am I completely off and there is no reason I shouldn't be able to find 10+ potential mentors in the topic and skills I'm looking for that are all accepting students the specific year I intend to apply?
  18. Hello! I am a senior psychology student at Texas A&M. After graduation, I want to work in a clinical setting where I can work one on one with patients in talk therapy. Perhaps in marriage and family - more along the lines of counseling psychology. I am stuck between pursuing a Psy.D or a Master’s degree. As I’m not sure which is the better fit. Let me know what you guys think
  19. Hi guys, I'm feeling slightly confused about options right now, and I was hoping to get some guidance. My background: -I have about 6 years of work experience (3 years that are directly relevant to a psych program!) and my MPH -I have a strong interest in Global mental health work, stemming from my master's program, as well as from professional experience (currently working in the global development field) -I am increasingly interested in the idea of going back for a PhD, in order to really develop an expertise in this area (My dream job would be to be affiliated with a university, or a multi-lateral organization doing some kind of applied research and/or policy writing That all being said....I went through an extensive period of unemployment, and I also know one too many desperate, unemployed PhDs out there, so going back for a purely research based degree seems very scary to me and essentially like a non-starter. I do have a year of counseling experience, and I discovered to my surprise that I actually liked that quite a bit. I don't think I would be satisfied only doing counseling, but it would be great to end up in a place where I could see clients part time and do research/policy part time. So, the question is, where does this leave me in terms of grad school options? It seems like the options are: 1. Apply for a research PhD in Psychology or in Global Health etc. (Also thinking about Medical anthro as an option) And then do a quick counseling MA that would let me get my license, on top of that. This feels...excessive to me. Also doing another masters is an option, but considering I still have loans from my MPH, I would rather do a PhD where I would have a chance at full funding. 2. Apply for a Clinical PhD and just make sure it's a program that has a global focus. I'm finding that it easier said than done to find programs like this that fit the bill. 3. None of the above. Something I haven't considered. (Perhaps run off and join the circus?) Any suggestions, thoughts, program recommendations, would be greatly appreciated!
  20. Hi everyone, I am planning to apply for a Ph.D./PsyD program in Clinical/Counseling Psych. From what I know, not many international students are in the Psychology program. I am so lost, as I don't have anyone to ask advice from. Does anyone in our forum who is an F1 student and already attend a program, planning to apply? Thank you!
  21. I noticed there's usually one WAITLIST thread every year. This is where you can post about schools that you are waiting to hear back from. Consequently, if you are holding multiple offers and would like to get opinions, you can post here as well!
  22. I'm waitlisted at my top choice and am kind of freaking out. I know waitlisting experiences vary so much across year and program, and realistically the chances of being extended an offer are slim since this program is amazing but I'd love to hear folks' experiences/impressions of being wait-listed... What was it like and when did you finally hear back (with or without an offer)? How do you keep your spirits up? Did you re-apply to the same program? 😭 *sobbing intensifies*
  23. Hello, I'm an international applicant with a BA in Psychology from a Southeast Asian university. My ambition is to be a clinical psychologist and I wanted to apply for several doctorate programs, but I eventually realized that it would be unlikely for me to get in, because my stats are not competitive enough. So I decided to be realistic and applied for several Masters programs and was accepted into the MA in Psychology in Education program at Teachers College, Columbia University and the MA in Measurement, Evaluation and Research Methodology program at University of British Columbia. Now, I am having some doubts and hesitations about my decision to pursue an MA. While TC is prestigious in name and might help with my profile's competitiveness, it is also really expensive and I can't afford it without going in debt. Columbia is a dream school but realistically I don't see it paying off after evaluating the cost-benefits. Meanwhile, UBC is also good, but I worry that the program is not in line with my next steps of entering a doctorate program in Clinical Psychology. It does consist a masters thesis component, but would I be disadvantaged compared to other applicants who graduated with a masters in general/experimental/clinical/counseling psychology? As for the reason I applied for that program at UBC, I have an interest in the field of psychometrics and I thought that instead of doing a masters in clinical psychology where I would still be unable to practice, I could gain the knowledge and skills in psychometrics, before pursuing a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Another thing is...Should I even pursue an MA? I'm currently working full-time in the space of consultancy, where we administrate assessments and conduct analysis on the data collected for organisations (another reason for my interest in psychometrics). While earning a PhD in Clin Psych and becoming a practitioner is my ultimate goal, I worry about whether pursuing it now is the right decision. Am I ready to go back to being a student without any stable financial income? Should I wait another year and try again better prepared? But, I'd rather not have to go through the whole application process all over again... I have read that PhD looks mostly at research experience and grades, so even if I'm lacking in clinical experience, it's not impossible to get into a program if I cover the former two components. However, I have noticed that Canadian universities tend to combine the masters and PhD program for clinical psychology, though direct entry into PhD is possible, I would have to spend a little more time catching up with MA clinical psych courses (which I don't mind). Again, this is just based on what I've read on existing threads, so I would appreciate to hear some advice regarding the kind of directions I could take... Whether it's an American or Canadian university, I am honestly open to any as long as my research interest is a fit with the faculty and it is possible for me to get a funding package... TL;DR These are my questions... Can I still get into a PhD/PsyD in Clinical Psychology program with an MA that is not clinical psychology? Would I be disadvantaged if so? Should I enter TC instead of UBC because it's more relevant to clinical psychology? Or should I wait another year and try again? Does a Masters really help? I am pretty much on board with the decision to pursue it to better prepare myself for a PhD, but one can't help but worry still... Does an international applicant stand a chance to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology with funding? If it helps as reference, the following are my stats: Psychology (BA) Honors program, First Class Honors; CGPA: 3.49; Major/Honors GPA: 3.81 GRE quant 148 (I know I gotta work on this) verb 159 AW 4.5 (I intend to retake GRE before applying for PhD) Psi Chi member; 1 research experience as a research assistant in a psychometrics project in my undergrad no publications; 1 oral presentation in an international conference (abstract published in the International Journal of Psychology) and 1 poster presentation in local conference Apologies for the length, thanks for reading...
  24. I saw this type of thread for other majors and I thought I start one here. This in no way is meant to pressure individuals to make decisions but rather help the waitlisters in being able to know if there is hope in getting into the program of choice. I hope this thread will be helpful for everyone who is involved in this hectic process of grad school applications.
  25. ...Why was this thread not a thing?! LOL The main psychology thread has gotten so overwhelming with people across so many different areas. It’s too hard to keep up. I also enjoy reading the invites vs. the applicant threads separately. All my fellow Clinically Psychology PhD/PsyD applicants, please feel free to keep this specific thread going with your thoughts, worries, comments, exciting and depressing stories, and all in between... We are all in this miserable hell of a ride together for at least another month or two lmao.. #canitbeoveralready
