A few weeks ago, I was rejected from all the master programs I applied too, for the second year in a row. For some context, I graduated in August and have already applied in 2 application cycles for a masters in clinical psychology, and got rejected from all schools I applied too. I have a competitive GPA (3.5 and above), research experience in the field, volunteer experience, and in my opinion strong letters of recommendation. When I was rejected from my schools a year ago, I asked for feedback from the programs and all I got was a generic "we can only admit so many students per term and had to reject a X amount of highly qualified applicants". Even though I was heart broken, I still reapplied too many of the same schools and even some new ones, and was rejected from all of them again. Once again, I asked for feedback on how to make my application stronger from the programs and got the same answer. I really want to go to graduate school, but I feel like I'm going around in circles because I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm not getting anything specific when it comes to feedback so I don't know if I'm repeating past mistakes. As many applicants probably feel, I believe I am a strong candidate, but I am continually missing the mark. How do you improve your application when you have no idea what you're doing wrong? Thanks in advanced to anyone who responds! :)
