Hey all, I'm basically looking for input and advice on my current situation: I was accepted to The Wright Institute's PsyD program and I'm really excited about it. I know the most about their program as compared to other schools I applied to and love their practicum opportunities and the vibe of the school. I also like that I'd be getting a doctoral degree. However, I've been living in the bay area for a while and a big part of me really wants to get the heck out of here. I've generally been really unhappy in this location and feel ready for change. I was rejected from Yeshiva University's PsyD program in New York, but just got accepted to their M.A program in Mental Health Counseling and I have to say it's tempting for a few reasons - 1) It's a university, not professional institute, 2) the program is a bit shorter and I believe a bit more affordable, and 3) the location!!! All the same, I wouldn't want to regret not going for the PsyD for kind of shallow reasons. What do you all think? Any insight especially on what an M.A in New York can do for you vs. a PsyD from anywhere...not as familiar with the job market in NYC. Thanks!
Hey everyone! I'm new to the forum so please bare with me! I'm about to be 26 years old and I finally decided to pursue my dream of becoming a licensed school psychologist. So far, I've been given the opportunity to interview at Fairleigh Dickinson University for their MA School Psychology program (accredited and have a Psy.D advanced standing track). I was recently accepted to Long Island University- Hudson for an M.S in School Psychology with Bilingual Extension (Not accredited), and Iona College for an MA in School Psychology (accredited). I plan on moving to Florida but I did not make the application deadline for the University of Central Florida's School Psychology EdS program, and it's unlikely that I would get in. Here's my dilema, I meet above all of the requirements for Nova Southeastern University's Psy.D program (and I really want to get in!) EXCEPT the GRE standard cut-off score. What my goal is for this specific program is a combined score of at least a 300. The first time I took the GRE I scored very low (combined score of 274). In my defense, math was never my best subject and I also did not prepare for the GRE at all (I did not study and I did not know anything about the test format, length, etc.) and I kind of went in blind. My question is will it be possible for me to go up 26 points on my GRE? I purchased the ETS GRE prep book straight from the makers of GRE and I was thinking of using Magoosh what do you guys think? Is Magoosh trustworthy or should I try a private tutor? Thank you guys Alex
I am currently in second year of my B.A in international relations. I am studying in India. I wish to go abroad for masters preferably UK or US or Germany. I am really getting confused about the courses links on the internet and would really like to have a few opinions on the best universities in these places for studying IR or Human rights. Also I would like to know about the scholarship programs available and the requirements for them!
If I turn down a school for their M.A program will it affect my PhD application to that program in the future?
