Hello, This is my first time posting a thread on here, so I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. I am in need of some advice. I am currently a 4th year undergrad student at UChicago and have a 3.1 cumulative GPA (3.4 Psychology) I have not taken my GRE yet, but intend to do so next summer, to apply next Fall for graduate programs in clinical psychology. I have worked in Psychology labs for about 5 years now, but have no publications or presentations (hoping to have a couple done by the end of this academic year). I currently work with a prof as her only undergrad research assistant, so not a research lab per se. My primary research interest is suicide/self-injurious behaviors. My question is--where to go from here? I know I want to end up in a Clinical Psych Ph.D program, but that is certainly a long shot right now, mostly because of my low GPA. Is there anyone here who could possibly recommend any Clinical Psych MA programs with faculty with similar research interests? Absolutely any help would be deeply appreciated.
Hi! I am new the forums but I am not new to applying for graduate school. I currently hold an offer of admission from Northern Illinois University with a wait list offer on funding and I am hoping funding will come through soon. Since many others are probably in this boat - NIU says I am somewhere around 30th on the waitlist - I thought we would share where we are at deciding to attend NIU. It could help all of us decide whether it is worth attending another school. At the moment, I am considering deferring enrollment for a year if possible because I do not think funding will come through. BUT I am super hopeful an assistantship will turn up in the University OR the Governor of Illinois will stop his "austerity measures" and return funding to normal. What are you guys thinking?
As an undergraduate student entering my senior year, I have an unfortunate amount of questions regarding the application process for doctoral programs in English literature. Having written extensively on Joyce's Ulysses, I'm primarily interested in the relationship between narrative theory and postcolonial studies, with an emphasis on 20th century modernism. So, then, does anyone know of some top tier doctoral programs known for research in postcolonialism, narratology, and/or modernism? I'm also interested in American postmodern literature—e.g. Thomas Pynchon, Don DeLillo, and David Foster Wallace—but haven't come into contact with many reputable programs renown for that mode of contemporary scholarship, so guidance there would certainly help, too. On a semi-unrelated note, I'm also curious if those of you who have been accepted to top tier (or second-tier) programs 1) applied in the fall prior to graduation, 2) applied in the fall following graduation, 3) applied during an MA program, or 4) applied following the completion of an MA program. Any response to these questions and concerns would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
Hey Everyone! I was just wondering if anyone had any information on which of the two Terminal MA programs is better. I was initially going for SFAI, but SFSU is also tugging at me. I'm looking to focus on Gender and Sexuality (Queer Theory) in Contemporary Art. Ranking, personal experience, what you've heard through the grapevine...anything helps you guys! Thanks Erica
