  1. Hello all! I thought of posting this out of curiosity in everyone's decision for this application cycle. Those of you who received offers, congrats! Have you made your decisions in choosing which school to attend this fall? I am still waiting to hear back so I am not eligible to post anything yet (will come running and post my decision when I hear back the good news *fingers crossed*). Please come and share your exciting news! Where are you headed this fall?
  2. Just graduated with Psychology and Human Development bachelors degrees. Got into a developmental PhD program in the 2018 cycle but turned it down due to poor fit/funding. Starting to look at programs for the 2019 cycle and am interested in applying to some MSc programs at UK schools. Interested in Autism research and a lot of the Autism work in the UK is very interesting and progressive. Has anyone from the US applied to/attended a UK program for grad school? I'm a little lost on the timeline and the funding options. I'm also not sure if I should be looking at MSc taught or research courses or a DPhil courses. I've heard UK programs are more intense/independent than US programs prepare you for and that it can be an easier transition to start in a MSc course. My long term goal is a PhD in developmental or cognitive psychology.
  3. Is there anyone who received UCLA cognitive psychology official letter (email) ? Have the school sent out official acceptance letters (email) for F18 Ph.D. ?
  4. Hi! I am in MAJOR need of advice! Here's the sitch: I live in California. I work for an educational non-profit that I LOVE and care for deeply. I was given an unofficial job offer last week to take over our region as a Regional Manager (making a salary, full-time hours, management experience) for minimum of a one year commitment. DAYS later, I receive awesome news! I have been accepted into the Masters of Arts for Psychology with a focus in Cognition and Neuroscience at NYU!!! NEW YORK OMG! I have dreamt of New York for nearly ten years now and even applied to NYU for my BA out of high school (which I got rejected to). This has been my dream of dreams and it is REAL now. However, I would be a transplant student moving miles and miles away, not knowing anyone, with not nearly enough saved up to steadily live. I am not afraid to work hard to get to where I want, because I've already worked hard to get to where I am. I am really battling with myself if I should attempt to defer my admission for a year and possibly take the unofficial job offer (it's not promised yet) or risk it for my dream of studying what I want where I've always wanted. WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
  5. Is anyone else here waiting to hear back from cognitive programs? I applied to: Stony brook, Notre Dame, UNC Greensboro, Kent State, Iowa State, Colorado State, Washington State, U of Louisville, Boston College and UC Santa Cruz and have not heard anything.
  6. Hello All, I need help with deciding what specialty of psychology I should pursue, and by getting others' experiences and perspectives on these specialties, I hope to be better equipped to make that decision. I need to have all my graduate school applications turned in by Dec 1, 2018 (next December). I am hoping to find a fully funded program preferably, but I know I can't put all my eggs in one basket. The specialties I am interested in are neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, experimental, clinical, social, and cognitive. I came into this thinking I wanted to be a clinical psychologist, but now after having gone through some of my Psych classes, I ultimately would like to get myself to a place where I can do clinical, as well as research and/or teaching. Being completely unfamiliar with this process, I am very unaware of what the best way to proceed would be, in order to achieve my ultimate goal. This is why I am reaching out to you all, and I thank you in advance for any and all help! I will graduate with my Bachelor's in Psychology in April 2019, and plan on continuing on to Graduate school afterwards. My prior background I was a Respiratory Therapist, where I worked mostly in the ER, ICU, NICU, and PICU. I was also an active member in my husband's unit FRG (Family Readiness Group), where I mainly gave whatever kind of support was needed to those spouses who lost their soldier while deployed. I plan on applying for a few available internships this summer, so I can have more experience, and get my graduate school applications looking more favorable. I am 33, a mother of 3, a wife of a disabled veteran, and a strong woman just trying to make her difference in the world. With that being said, here are some questions I have, and again, any help or insight you might have on any or all of this, is more than welcome! 1. PhD or PsyD? 2. What are the realities (what can I expect) of working in the different specialties I mentioned above? 3. Are there any programs you would suggest that I highly check into? 4. How many applications did you submit for grad school? (Just curious, because my list is way too long so far) 5. What is the best way I can achieve my ULTIMATE GOAL, mentioned above? 6. Any suggestions on how to look more favorable to grad schools? 7. What other things about this whole process, am I forgetting to think about? Any other information you need from me, please just ask! Feel free to give any additional information not mentioned. Thankful Always, Christine M.
  7. Hi Everyone - I am a graduate student in a public policy program (MPP) at a very highly ranked school (top five in the country), one of the best in the country and I am hoping to move onto a PhD program in 2018. However, I am debating on what type of PhD program to pursue as my research interests are very diverse. At its core, I am currently studying public policy with two concentrations; the first is U.S. education policy in the United States and second, my degree has concentration certificates, which in my case will include computational social science and survey research methodology. Initially I thought wanted to get a PhD in public policy but my interests have since shifted to more of a psychology focus. My only formal experience with psychology is through my undergraduate major when I wrote my thesis, i was an English major that used psychological and cognitive theory for my undergraduate thesis. Outside of an academic setting, I have used various MOOCs (MIT OpenCourseWare, EdX, etc) for psychology classes. From what I can gather online, my primary focus would be on either developmental and/or cognitive psychology as I want to focus on learning and memory, particularly within adolescents in schools and classrooms. Over the course of my research I have also found programs in Educational Psychology, but most of those appear to be through a school's Department of Education. As for my background, I have participated in Teach For America, as well as worked for a Education policy non-profit where I focused on data modeling and policy analysis. I want my career to focus on the intersection of education policy and the psychology of learning, ideally being able to use research to inform policy. This summer I am working for a highly respected research firm on healthcare policy. I am also well versed in big data tools and methods so quantitative psychology has some appeal. Is applying to a psych PhD program completely out of left field, at least from the perspective of an admissions counsel? Do MOOC courses count for anything when applying to a graduate program my undergraduate degree is not related to? Are cognitive and developmental psychology research degrees the right option for my career goals? Any advice would be grearty appreciated, I know what a great resource gradecafe can be for people with questions, like me! Thanks
  8. Hello, Can anyone tell me if there is a phenomenon in psychology pertaining to people who complain all the time and/or can find nothing good in particular people, places, things, etc? I know that this would be closely related to cognitive dissonance, but I'm looking more for what fuels and drives CD. A good example of what I'm referring to is within my own family. I grew up in a staunch politically Conservative home, and any time a Liberal government was elected (or even talked about), I would hear how 'they just want to ruin the country'. To me, this goes beyond CD, since those speaking did not actually know what that Liberal ideology was (and could rarely even explain the platform of their own Conservative representation). Another great example is the meme that is being circulated with a photo of Justin Trudeau, stating how the Government of Canada is giving so much more money towards refugees than they are to the Ft. McMurray disaster. What is this phenomenon of ridiculous thinking?
  9. I applied to Cognitive and Brain Sciences. Anyone else? I need to make a decision for the other school I got accepted but I don't want to till I get an answer from them.
