  1. I'm an applicant from India. I currently hold a Masters in Counselling Psychology, and I'm looking to apply to MA/PhD programs in the US and Canada for Social/Personality Psychology. My main concern is some of the universities ask for a converted grade from percentages to the 4.0 GPA Scale, the conversions drastically reduce my scores to about a 3.0 average or just slightly above 3.0. However, my grades have been consistently high according to the Indian scoring system, and I have been among the top of my class throughout my undergrad and postgrad courses, as well as an Honors student in my Postgrad. How likely will the converted scores affect my chances of admissions? Some universities let me justify the low scores ( if scores are below 3.5 GPA), how do I justify the same?
  2. Creating a thread to discuss the range of masters programs for psych. Waiting to hear from: Columbia, NYU, American University, Wake Forest, Fordham. Anyone else just.... waiting...? I have been watching the PhD forums, and am thrilled to see everyone receiving interviews/admits to their programs, but I feel as though the masters programs are much, much slower. Post below any updates you have to your programs! Not sure how many prospective MA students there are out there
  3. Hi! I am an international student holding a non-US undergraduate degree in psychology (a first-rank research school in Europe but maybe placements overseas and developments/pubs in Ph.D processes are not comparable to the states). I applied to some MA programs and just got a funded offer from Wake Forest for two years (75% tuition waiver so about 10,000 dollars tuition per year, potential full waiver & assistantship stipend in future). I also have a offer from UChicago MAPSS, but with merely 1/3 tuition waiver and may result in 50,000 dollars debt... I'm generally interested in ( clinical) developmental psychology though I have some background in quant psych. I do know a lot of alumni from MAPSS but I'm really not sure about Wake Forest's reputation. I'm kind of detached from MAPSS as they seemingly do not care their MA students and indeed it implies more stress in money and time. Their placements are good though. In this case, can anyone give me some suggestions? Especially in PhD placements & pubs. Many thanks!!!
  4. Hello! I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experience on beginning a career in psychology with an arts background. I graduated in 2019 with a BFA in Design and Production from a university with a conservatory teaching style. My degree is focused specifically in Wig and Makeup Design. I work (when it's not a pandemic) in NYC as a wig builder for broadway and have built wigs for individuals with medical related hair loss. I have a real desire to work in a helping profession specifically as a therapist or psychologist. I started college with a range of AP credits so I wasn't required to take a Math or Science so I have no science classes on my transcript. I would love to complete a postbac focused in Clinical Psych and Research but after looking into several programs I just don't see how I could qualify for those. I don't have the money to apply to programs without a general confidence in my success. It feels like psych graduate studies is a bit of a closed loop. Research experience is necessary for grad school/post bacc, can't get research experience without prereq academic or outside of formal academic structure. I've considered UC Berkeley EXT. Psych program(cost $4,000) but would it be worth it to do an online postbac then apply to another on campus postbac for research experience and professor interaction? Short of getting a second Bachelors degree (which really isn't an option I'm considering) I'm at a lost. I just want to clearly convey my interest and show that I am diligent and passionate student that can handle academic rigor.
  5. Hi- does anyone have any suggestions for schools that have an MA in psychological science that are about a year long? Also not in California if possible? Thanks a mil everyone!
  6. Hey everyone, I was just accepted to Wake Forest's psychology research masters program. It's a 2 year funded program that's designed for those who need more time to narrow down their research interests and gain research experience before applying to a PhD program. I applied to the program as a means of making myself a more competitive applicant for future PhD application cycles. I've heard things through word of mouth, and on some forums, that WFU has a good track record for placing students in quality clinical and non-clinical PhD programs. However, I feel like there's not a whole lot of threads on gradcafe talking about this program. I was wondering if this rumor is true-- that WFU's MA is known for getting students into good PhD programs, and if so, where I could get a sense of this placement data. I don't see any information anywhere regarding what kind of programs people go into after WFU's MA program-- whether that be the actual names of the PhD schools, the location, or the type of psychology PhD (social, cog, clinical, dev, etc.). I'm just curious about where people get this information on WFU's supposed track record. I also wanted to hear about what it's like to live in winston-salem and that area of North Carolina in general. I'm from the west coast and this would be a big change for me, should I end up going. I was wondering about people's experiences with the diversity (or lack of) in the area, the living costs (especially relative to the stipend they give), the campus culture, and just whether or not you enjoyed being there. So yeah! Any and all input about the program or the school is welcome. I just feel like there's almost no threads talking about the program or the school despite the all the good things it's supposedly known for. Thanks in advance!
  7. 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.
