  1. Hi all! I asked this in Dev psych thread but wanted to reach bigger crowd and hear more opinions. I am contemplating between two sets of GRE scores: V 159/Q 167/AW 3.5 vs. V 155/Q same/AW 4.0. I did NOT expect AW 3.5 for the first set and scheduled a second set asa I got the first scores but apparently I suck at writing stuff under 30 mins. - Undergrad GPA 3.5 from one of the most competitive schools - 3 co-author publications, 1 first-author manuscript in progress (will submit the draft as academic writing sample), 5 first-author posters - Extensive research experience from undergrad + 3yrs post-bacc in a psych lab - 3 letter writers explicitly promised strong letters I truly believe that my AW scores do not represent my writing skills. So I've initially considered sending the first set, hoping that my other materials will show beyond the AW scores. But I am now worried if the schools have "hidden" cut-off scores and will drop my application wo giving a proper review? All of the schools that I am applying to indicate that they have "no minimum or cut-off scores for GRE" but I am also hearing that the admissions committees still have some "hidden" cut-off scores in mind. What do you guys think? Which one should I submit?

  3. Hello everyone, It is midnight and I can not rest until I have some feedback that may shine some light on my chances for getting into a graduate program Fall 2020. I would greatly like to know of others with low or average GPA to share their experience. I will be graduating this May. I hope to raise my GPA with this semesters coursework and gain more experience during my gap year. I reside in California and will most likely be applying to graduate programs in the state. Here are my current specs. Overall GPA: 3.42 GPA in last 2 years: 3.68 Psyc GPA: 3.48 2 years working as a Behavior Instructor, one of which as a Registered Behavior Technician 1 year of research 1 year as a TA I will also be attending WPA this year where I'll be presenting a poster presentation as a co-author for a study on impostor phenomena as well as a presentation with Philip Zimbardo on his Heroic Imagination Project and possible integration to CSU's,. The psychology department chair at my university has asked me to help her present addition research of hers on the impostor phenomena as well. Again, any feedback will help!
  4. Would anyone be able to offer me suggestions on which doctoral-level programs I should apply to based on my interests? I have spent countless hours researching programs but it feels like I'm getting nowhere. I'm not sure if I should go for a PsyD or a PhD, and if I should choose clinical or counseling psychology (although I think I'm leaning more towards clinical). When I am done with grad school, I want to work in a group practice (and eventually a private practice). I want a program that will well prepare me for the clinical aspect of a career in psychology. My fear is that if I go to a school that is too research-oriented, I wont be prepared enough as a practitioner. I want to focus on treating people that don't have severe mental disorders (I want to focus on depression, anxiety, eating disorders, etc.). I also don't really love doing research (I understand that some research is necessary). Do you know of Phd programs or PsyD programs that are (much) more practice based than research based? Any advice that you have would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  5. Dear colleagues, I am going to study for the GRE Psychology Subject Test. Is there anyone who would like join me (from 1 to 3 ppl)? I am working on a study plan by 7 main areas included in the test. For the beginning I think I'll spend 6-8 hours a week. Hope to form a very productive group and enjoy learning! Let me know if you are interested. Thanks in advance! Best, Inga
  6. Hey! So I'm just about done with my first draft of my SOP (I know, I'm pretty late in the game) and going to get it reviewed by some advisors this week. After my second or third draft, would anyone (possibly psychology majors) be willing to exchange SOPs so we can give each other advice?
  7. I was wondering if anyone can give me any insight into getting into a Psychology PhD program (particularly neuropsych) with a MS in Statistics. I have a bachelors in psychology and am working towards building my math and stats background. Seeing as how I am not able to foresee whether or not I will be able to commit to a 5-7 years phd program after a masters, I am forgoing my acceptance into a general psychology masters program to pursue a masters in stats (better job prospects and still satisfies my interest in research). Obtaining a PhD in psych is still one of my dreams that I hope I still may pursue, and I was wondering if anyone knows how a phd program may view someone with my background (BA in Psych, MS in Stats, & a couple years of research experience). Thanks!
