  1. Hi there! so I'm a senior in undergrad (sociology and psychology major) looking to apply to some clinical psychology PhD programs!From what I know, it's pretty taboo to talk about your own psychopathology on a personal statement. However, I have not so great grades from freshman year (a C+ in biology and a C in physics 2 and then a couple of Bs in social science classes), transferred to a better school, maintained a 3.5 GPA, and then this summer had to withdraw from a summer term so now I have two Ws on my transcript as well for linear algebra and intro to programming. All of this was due to my C-PTSD and subsequent alcoholism (which I am working on now). I'm pretty frustrated because I don't to leave this unexplained but I also don't want to cross a taboo subject. How should I address this in my personal statement? If it helps, here's a short list of the stuff on my CV: - GPA: 3.5, major GPA 3.9- worked in university's LGBT center for past year and continuing this year- worked in neuroscience lab for one year, presented poster- worked in clinical psychology lab for 21 months, presented poster- worked in child neuropsychology lab for a summer- worked with a professor at the school of social work for her poster and publications- presented at MBGLTACC, an LGBT conference for college students/staff on the intersection of hinduism and being LGBT+- presented at a LGBT POC conference on an independent research project- currently working in a social psychology lab that is related to my honors thesis, which is related to both social and clinical psychology- GRE scores: 162 verbal, 167 math, 5.0 on the essay. above the 90th percentile for all 3.
  2. I am a current MA student in School Psychology and will be applying for PhD in the same stream this fall. I need two academic references for most of my applications. I am guaranteed with a good reference letter from my MA supervisor, who can comment on my academic (two grad courses that I did well in) and research abilities (working on my thesis with her right now). My question is who to ask for my second LOR, out of the following two options: 1) My undergraduate supervisor, who is in the field of Clinical Developmental Psychology. I worked in her lab for more than two years and she was also my thesis supervisor. I am still working closely with her right now on publishing results of a project to which I contributed. I have gotten really strong LOR from her previously for my MA and scholarship applications. 2) Another professor from my graduate program. She taught two of my courses, where I did okay in the fall-term one (mid 80s) and better in my winter-term one (low 90s). I did really well on both of my final papers, but not so well on presentations (she has pretty high standards and presentations are definitely not my forte). Overall, I have a sense that she doesn't think of me as one of her top students. My first instinct was to ask my option 1 for the LOR, but she replied with the advice that reviewers of applications would expect more recent assessments of my graduate work. This has led me to question my choice - any thoughts/advice on who I should choose as my second reference?
  3. Early Modern Lit PhD

    Hi guys, I am looking for some advice about applying to PhD programs. I don't want to go to schools simply because of their reputation or name, I really want to apply to places that will be the best fit for me and my studies. I am interested in Early Modern literature, Animal Studies, and the Early Modern drama (specifically the politics of the stage). Does anyone have any ideas about what programs would best suit that?

  7. Hi guys I've applied to 14 schools for a PhD in biomedical engineering for the fall 2016. I've only heard from 2 so far and no news about funding. Should I worry? Aren't schools late for sending out admissions decisions?
  8. UVa Interview

    I am going to visit UVa on February 25th-27th 2016 for an interview. What should I prepare in order to get good news? Could I just wear jeans and T-shirts? Never attend an on-site interview before...
  9. Hello folks, I am applying for a PhD degree in Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh. I submitted my online application and sent a package enclosed with all their required files to the department. I emailed them, asking whether my application has been processed, but no one ever replies since January. I checked the online system ten times a day but saw no updates of my information!!! I am totally freak-out!!! Does anyone hear from UPitt (Marsha Tsouris to be exact)? Or could anyone tell me what's going on there? I am in for the political science graduate program. So I am really worried about that. Could anyone HELP? Thanks.
