  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. It’s my top choice! I love the social justice orientation of the program. My POI is PTN
  6. Hello! I am preparing to apply for PhD programs in Counseling Psychology this fall to begin school in 2020.

  7. 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 disabi
  8. 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
  9. Hello! Not sure if this is the correct venue to ask this question, but I'll give it a shot. I am looking at going back to school and after much deliberation have decided a master's is the most feasible option for me at the moment. Considering at the moment either pursuing a degree in clinical mental health counseling or counseling psychology. The things that interest me the most (and, I think, are/will become most relevant to profession of counseling) are interpersonal neurobiology, evolutionary psychology and behavioral biology. Is anyone aware of some master's level counseling progr
  10. I'm currently in the midst of some soul searching as I try to figure out if I'm best suited for a clinical, counseling, or school psych PhD program. Pertaining to those programs, I would love to know as much as possible regarding the differences in research experience, job opportunity, annual salary, program structure, clinical training, acceptance difficulty...anything and everything! I'm very conflicted right now so any personal experience, or knowledge anyone has would be infinitely appreciated!
  11. Hi everyone! I have my first interview this Tuesday and Wednesday and wanted to create a place where we can debrief after the interviews. We can share anything from what everyone wore to actual questions and itineraries, as well as hopes and fears post-interview. Hopefully comparing notes will help ease anxieties!
  12. Hi all! I’m currently preparing for the upcoming application cycle, and I will apply to both phd and masters programs, with masters being my backups. I want to ask how are these following types of masters programs different in terms of training and job outlook: Mental health psychology, clinical psychology, counseling psychology, social work, marriage and family. Also, how can I tell if a program is good or not ? Thank you!
  13. I have a M.S. degree in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience. For the better part of the year, i have yet to find a job in this field, better yet, Im having issues with finding a job at all. What are my job opportunities with this degree? I want to get into neuromarketing but I dont know how to go about doing that. I may have an upcoming teaching position at my old university however that's not something I would want to do for a long time. The other options I have are to go back to school in either counseling or I/o psychology. I just want to know what i should be doing.
  14. Hello everyone, I'm an immigrant career shift who is planning to go back to school for a degree in Counseling/Clinical Psychology. I've been reading thegradcafe and learned a lot about the application process. However, I can't decide if I should apply for PhD or MA first then PhD since my case is a little unique. Any advice is greatly appreciated. My BA was in Korean Studies back in Vietnam (gpa 3.1). After graduation I've been working as a Junior Journalist and Copywriter as well as a freelance translator for 2 years before I started my MA in Public Relations and Advertising in So
  15. Hello all, I am finishing up my undergraduate degree in psychology this semester. I applied to Ph.D. Counseling Psychology programs, and I unfortunately did not get any acceptances. One program did offer me admission into their masters counseling program which has opportunities to engage in research. However, there is a post-baccalaureate research fellowship I am highly interested, in which I will have the opportunity to conduct research in an area I am very passionate about. What will make me a stonger applicant when applying to Ph.D. programs next time around... taking a gap year and do
  16. I think most of Counseling Psychology Programs have sent out their offers. Lucky enough I have received several offers and is now freaking out about which offer to take. For all Counseling Psychology applicants, what are your criteria in choosing which offer to take? So far, I have thought about: - University Ranking - Program Ranking - Advisor-Advisee fit (research fit, personality fit) - Lab-Advisee fit (other lab members) - Other opportunities (lab projects, PI being a journal editor, Grant proposal, number of co-work between different albs) - Lab tur
  17. Just want to pick the brains of people that chose a Research doctoral program in Psychology, and those that chose a Clinical/Counseling program. I find myself much more interested in research than therapy in my Clinical Psychology Master's program. If I did a Clinical PhD I would want to get involved in research afterwards. I am very interested in research and testing, and doing some therapy but not really making that my focus. I would prefer to be licensed in Psychology just so I have the flexibility in career options. Thoughts? Rationale for clinical vs. research focus?
  18. Hey everyone! So I applied for several masters in counseling, and so far I've been accepted by University of Florida, Florida International University and was wait-listed by Florida State University. I am really unsure of what I should do. On one hand FIU is appealing because I have family that lives in Miami, and I know the area well. On the other hand I know UF is considered a more prestigious school and is well known, but the drawbacks for me is that their program is longer than most because it requires more credits (2 1/2 - 3 years). I am not sure if the extra year and extra tuition
  19. Hey everyone, this is my first post - thanks in advance for the input. So, I graduated less than a year ago in economics from a good university with a 3.06 GPA. I've worked for the state government for more than a year, doing internal audit and recently realized that I want to do a PhD in counseling psychology. A psychologist I saw with some regularity during my undergrad was thrilled at the prospect of me going into counseling psych and even wrote me a letter of recommendation (I sent in an application in December to the my Alma Mater just to see if it stuck; I wasn't accepted, but didn'
  20. I haven't seen much from Counseling Psychology applicants so far, but I know y'all are out there somewhere! Feel free to discuss your master's or doctoral applications. Mine are an array of 7 doctoral, 3 master's, 1 master's in Clinical Psychology, and 1 master's in Counseling research.
  21. Hi all! I wanted to make a thread for just folks who are doing MA or MS track in a psychology field, such as mental health counseling or school psychology. Anybody out there?

  23. Hi all, I saw a few people on the results board say they have heard back from BC - I haven't heard either way, anybody have an update?
  24. I assume when this question is listed on an online application and it is not required, the correct thing to do is not fill it in? Is there something I'm missing here? Thanks for any input y'all can provide!
