Hi there, I am well aware that PhD programs for clinical psychology are extremely competitive, but I am writing to see what my odds look like/if I'm on the right path right now. I'm a current junior pursuing a bachelor of art's degree in psychology. My cumulative GPA right now is 3.94. I volunteer at a halfway house and I just landed a research assistant position for the summer. I have an interview to be a crisis hotline worker next week. I plan on doing some more research after I graduate- I know that programs really look for this. I am also Division One lacrosse player, if that means anything too. I am trying to get experience working in a private office over the summer as well. I know the acceptance rate is around 2-5%, so while I can I want to make sure I'm doing everything possible to make my chances higher. All input is welcome, thank you!!
Hello, For anyone who's attending Georgetown GHP or have graduated, please comment on the following? 1. What is your current job? 2. What type of jobs have your other classmates in the program gotten? 3. How did GHD prepare you for your job or field? I'm not sure what I'd like to concentrate on. I know I want to work for the Peace Corps and UN and other agencies. Right now I'm interested in economic development, human rights, and Global Health. 4. Do you have any recommendations for someone who doesn't know what sector of development they want to focus on? 5. How does GHD differ, to you, from a regular MPA/ or IR program? 6. Can you tailor the program to your own development career goals? Thank you!!!
Hey everyone. I've recently been accepted into NYU Hagop Kevorkian Center, the University of Chicago, and the University of Texas at Austin as a master's student for the upcoming fall. I'm interested in studying the modern Middle East, and I hope to pursue a PhD after my master's. Professionally, I would like to go into advising on or developing US foreign policy with a focus on the Middle East (Perhaps a job in the White House or in a political think tank in DC). That being said, I have not completely ruled out the possibility of teaching in the future as well. Bearing all this in mind, I would like opinions from other people who are similarly in my position, who are currently studying at these schools, or even alumni, anyone who might be able to shed some light on my situation and give helpful advice, as I am torn between the aforementioned schools. I will also say that at the moment, it seems that UT Austin is the most financially feasible so far (lowest tuition, but I haven't heard if I will receive an TA position yet - I should find out in the next couple of weeks). Any thoughts/opinions on which school I should attend? Thank you all in advance.
