  1. I was recently given an interview for the Clinical Psych PsyD program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology - Irvine, CA. The interview is not until next month but I wasn’t sure about the program or how their interviews are formatted. I’ve done some research on the school but still am not sure about the program. I know that it is CBT and Psychoanalysis focused and that it is currently in the process of APA accreditation. If anyone can give me information about their program, what their school is like, or how their interview process works/questions they may pose i
  2. Would anyone be able to offer me suggestions on which doctoral-level programs I should apply to based on my interests? I have spent countless hours researching programs but it feels like I'm getting nowhere. I'm not sure if I should go for a PsyD or a PhD, and if I should choose clinical or counseling psychology (although I think I'm leaning more towards clinical). When I am done with grad school, I want to work in a group practice (and eventually a private practice). I want a program that will well prepare me for the clinical aspect of a career in psychology. My fear is that if I go to
  3. I would like to provide some information regarding the reality of getting admitted to top 5 ranked Canadian graduate schools in the Computer Science Program. I work in the field and it appears to me that many applicants are not aware of some of the basic requirements to be admitted that are not overtly stated but definitely required. Unfortunately, I am unable to reveal my university or position as I wish to remain anonymous. Most of the time, you MUST have previous degree from a top school of your country, especially for students with a degree outside of Canada/USA/UK. This is extreme
  4. I am a Masters graduate in Engineering (electrical) and I've been working at a hardware company since my graduation about 1.5 years ago. I'm planning to apply for PhD (US & international). I did not do a thesis for my masters - my degree was coursework based. My question is- can I submit LORs for PhD programs in engineering from some of my supervisors/managers/mentors at work? I've interned at work at a couple of companies in highly technical roles. And since I haven't done thesis in my masters, I have better chances of obtaining strong LORs from work than school. I have this q

    AuD costs

    I am applying to 4 AuD programs. Cost is a huge influence for me, and so I have been calculating all the costs for the different programs. This has been challenging since every school has a different way of breaking tuition down, and I am finding some to be much more clear than others! Is there anyone else out there that is doing this for these schools and could verify I did this right? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Also, I am calculating resident costs, since I am applying to schools only on the Western Exchange Program (since I am from Colorado). The schools I am applying to are: U
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm interested in applying to grad school for Molecular Biology for Fall 2018. I finished my B.S. in Biology this year. I had applied to 5 of the top PhD programs in neuroscience last year for this upcoming Fall but I was rejected from everyone. I want to try again this year, but instead apply to Molecular Biology programs. My GPA is a 3.95, my GRE score was 83rd percentile on Quantitative, 97th percentile on Verbal, and 93rd percentile on Analytical Writing. However, I only have one full academic year of research experience and participation in a summer research program. I a
  7. Hi everyone! I am new here so serious help will be greatly appreciated. I am graduating next year with my Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics and I was wondering what is the next best step for me to do. I am determined to get into grad school but I've heard that, for applied math, you have the option to either take a master's or go directly to getting a PhD. My ultimate goal is to get a PhD but getting a master's was what I was expecting to get first. Either way, I just wanted to know what most of you suggest I take: master's or directly get into PhD program? Also, what is
  8. Hello, I have scheduled interviews in January and February at numerous Clinical Psychology PsyD programs around the country (Baylor, JFKU, Marshall, IUP, etc). My question is whether or not I should be clean shaven for the interviews. I have a full and well manicured beard. It is always well kept, trimmed, and groomed and I have always received many compliments on my beard. I have gotten mixed reviews when asking professors and professionals about what to do with my facial hair situation. Some say to play it safe and shave it off and some say that it would be something that could potentia
  9. I'm trying to decide between schools for a PhD in Education and Oregon State University is the only one I won't be able to visit. I would love to hear from anyone who's taken classes at the College of Education at Oregon State. What do you think of the professors? What are the classes are like, especially if you took any online Education classes? What about the College of Ed. as a whole - is it supportive of its students? Any advice, criticism, praise, etc. that you may have would be great! Doesn't matter if you took classes as an undergrad, Masters, or PhD student. I really just wan
  10. Hi everyone. I am currently in the final semester of my masters in education and have come to the conclusion that I would like to continue my education and pursue a PhD. I am currently completing a degree in Social Studies education, and would like to also pursue my PhD in that same field of study. My current program has led me to read a lot of academic work, and one such author resonated with me each time I read his work. After a quick search of his name in a bout of curiosity, it turns out he is the program director/doctoral advisor for a Social Studies Education program. The schools website

    DSW

    Hi, Has anyone applied to any DSW (doctor of Social Work) programs this year? Did you have an interview? Did you get your admissions results yet? Why did you pick the DSW instead of the PhD? Thanks
  12. HI, I just had an interview yesterday, for my number one choice school. I was so nervous I think it went badly. I know some people send a follow up email thanking the interviewer. Should I do this? Is it ok to restate my reason why I want to attend this program? (That's one of the questions that I messed up.) Also, I told her I had three main interests (pediatric mental health, grief/loss, human-animal bond). Should I say that I am primarily interested in one of them? Thanks
  13. I want to pursue a PhD in History and am applying this month for the Fall of 2017. My Application: Strengths: Writing Sample LORs SOP Uncertain parts: GPA [3.18 cumulative, 3.48 at current institution (I was a transfer and screwed up on some Psych courses, which was my major at the time, during freshman year), and a 3.900 in History] GRE (I take it on Tuesday so don't yet have my scores. I'm anticipating good marks on the Verbal and Writing sections. At least 160 for V and 4.0 for Writing. *knocks on wood*) Certain Weaknesses: No Publicati
  14. So, I am currently in a specialist level program in school psychology (69 hours, SSP | MA/CAGS level). When I went into the program, I was uncertain about ever getting my doctoral degree, for various reasons, so I decided to go into the specialist level. Now, I am more sure of what I want. My ultimate goal is to go back to school after this program and get my doctorate in psychology (PhD/PsyD). I am hoping to get it in either school psychology or counseling psychology. I am leaning heavily toward school psychology, obviously. So, my question is, how many of you guys have gone this route
  15. Hello! I'm interested in applying to the Doctor of Education in SLP at TC Columbia in the future and would like to get some information from anyone who attended or has applied. I'm interested in knowing how the program is structured (classes, research, and possibility of having a job while studying), how selective the application process is, how much work experience applicants typically have and so on. I'm also wondering if there is any funding available (I've heard it's scarce) and whether the experience overall was a good one. I hope to get a Bilingual Extension Institute certificate fr
  16. Hi- Are there any PhD applicants in public policy/public affairs/policy analysis here?? Where have you guys all applied? Has anyone got an admission offer yet?
  17. Hey Guys, What a wonderful time to be alive! Yet there are many decisions to be made! I have been offered admission by three MA programs: SAIS Washington DC; Fletcher; American University; Georgetown's Security Studies program—though I will hear from them next week, I feel it is in the bag. My predicament is the following. I am a non-American student whose main areas of interest are international relations and international security. I want to devote my life to academia (preferably
  18. I applied to a DPhil program at Oxford, for which the decision date is supposed to be Jan. 13th. I was interviewed right before Christmas break (via Skype). I'm a little on edge now, because I've heard of a bunch of people who heard back almost immediately (for better or worse) after their interviews, and for me it's been almost a month. It's quite possible that the holiday interfered...maybe staff were out of the office for a while, I don't know. Is there anyone else who has applied to a graduate program in the UK for an early deadline, or better yet specifically Oxford? Anyone heard back
  19. A few years ago I left a top20 biomedical science PhD program in the US after two years of training. Most of the labs w/ funding in my research area left the school, so there were more students than available mentors. When I left, ¾ of the students in my research area did not have a lab at the end of our 2nd year. I also did not really like the area I was living in or the institution, so I decided to cut my losses and leave the program. I left before my prelim and I was so burnt out at the time I did not try to get a masters degree (would have had to find lab to fund me and stay there several
  20. Hey all, Basically I am trying to gauge my potential for PhD studies in Cell and/or Molecular biology. I'm still narrowing down research topics. I would like to attend grad school in or right around NYC. This would include such schools as Columbia, NYU, Weill-Cornell, Rockefeller, SUNY Downstate, CUNY Graduate Center, Stony Brook University and several others. While I know my (weak) stats arn't likely to land me in the top schools in NYC, please give me some feedback and what my options may be and what I can do to improve my chances for any program. A buddy of mine recommended applying for
  21. Hey, guys. I've recently applied to some MA programs here in Canada and I'm excited to start my research if I'm accepted. My plan has been to eventually do a PhD in history, but after reading all the statistics and sob-stories online (not here at grad cafe, just online) and speaking with some of the staff at my university, I'm starting to reconsider this. I'm very passionate about history and I want to build a career out of it, but I also want to have a job stable enough and salary high enough to start a family near my thirties (I'm 22). I was wondering if anybody could suggest some career pat
  22. Has anyone ever done any professional development programs or research over the summer? I switched jobs from working for a non-profit education company (did some good, kind of cool stuff, but the place was not managed well... I wanted to get out while I could) to taking a job as a public school teacher, which sets me back a few years until I apply for my Ed.D. as I rack up my classroom experience (also a major reason why I changed jobs... want to apply to Columbia and Stanford and both require and/or prefer several years of classroom experience). Anyway.. until the time when I am ready to a
  23. Hi! Just took the revised GRE on Sept 23. Found that it went okay (as long as the section that totally freaked me out was the experimental section.) My score rangers were 460-560Q and 610-710V. My ideal score was 500 for Q and 670-700 for V. Do you think I'll need to take it again? I wish we weren't part of this test round where they dont know our percentiles. Totally unfair! I'm applying for PHD programs in history and middle east studies, so I'm just not sure how much it matters... Thoughts?
  24. Hi there! I couldn't find a forum that was dedicated for the Fall 2011 applications for Education Doctorates in 2012, so here it is! I really hope this will be a good place for mutual questions and support, as we all know this process is never an easy one! Anyway, to start things off, here are my specs. Feel free to ask me any questions that you may have, or just to stop by and say a quick hi! Undergraduate Institution: UC San Diego Masters Institution: MAT@USC, U of M Certification GPA: Undergraduate - 3.01, Graduate - 4.0 GRE: Verbal: 640, Quantitative: 800, Writing: 5.0 Wor
  25. Hey...I graduated in 2010 and have been living at home saving up for school/moving out. Now that I've saved up a bit of money, I'm really overwhelmed with whether I should apply to PhD programs now or wait until I work as a research assistant for a few years just to get some experience. I am looking at biopsych and cog neuroscience programs. I only have about 6 months of related research experience from my undergrad career, and I'm nervous that with my stats, I'll just have to reapply next year and I'd rather only go through the application process once. I majored in Behavioral Neuroscienc
