kobe1366 posted a topic in EconomicsWhen looking for a economic litigation consulting job ask yourself how many of the partners or leaders in the firm are truly trained economists
Hey all, I am a current 3rd year at UNC's Clinical Psychology PhD program who completed the NIH Post-Bac IRTA program and took off a year to travel (which made my application extremely competitive!). I've been reflecting on how much I've learned about what kills applicants chances and what makes a strong applicant and interview since I've begun reviewing applications and interviewing for my own PI. I want to utilize my experience and knowledge to help others give themselves the best shot at the admissions process. I am considering putting together a website to advertise my services (help figuring out what experience you need to make yourself a competitive applicant, assistance creating a realistic selection of schools to apply to, reviews of personal statements, assistance prepping for interviews, ) but wanted to gauge interest. I know a lot of people offered me advice along the way but realistically, only some of it is helpful and unfortunately, a lot of it is out of date. The admissions process is so much more competitive now than ever before for clinical psychology and I want to be a resource for others. Thoughts on whether you think this would be a service you wished existed would be great! I would conduct all services via phone or FaceTime and make payments easy online.
Carolyn_D posted a topic in PsychologyAs my senior year, GREs, grad applications and the real world quickly approaches I've been immensely struggling with the decision of "what's next?" The beginning of my junior year I took a class called the 'Psychology of Judgment and Decision Making' (I'm a psychology major) and I absolutely fell in love with the topic. I recall myself constantly spitting out "did you know's..." to my family and friends about things I was learning in that class. It was after this that I really came to terms with the fact that my long-time goal of going to graduate school for clinical psychology, may not actually be the avenue that I would be happiest perusing. I've been really interested in human behavior, consumer/consulting psychology, as well as, marketing psychology and overall judgment and decision making; however, as a senior, I have never taken a single business or econ class since I found this passion so late in the game. With that said, I was wondering if anyone has any advice or words of wisdom on graduate school in psychology or these particular topics in general (i.e. consumer and marketing psychology) and avenues I might be interested in perusing? For example, I've done hours and hours of research and read dozens of graduate school books and have come across very few programs, whether it be Master's or PhD's in psychology, that pertain specifically to my interests relating consumer science and marketing to human behavior psychology. I've only found tons of PhDs in marketing and business etc - however, psychology is still one of my underlying passions and I would love to be able to incorporate both areas into a Master's or PhD program within the overall field of psychology. Is anyone familiar with any specific programs that might be tailored to these interests? Or does anyone have any career paths or ideas that might be able to incorporate these? I really appreciate any and all advice; I've never felt more lost! Please reply via a comment here or e-mail me at email@example.com. Thank you so much!
