  1. Hey ya'll I'm coming up on my senior year in my undergrad program and I'm getting confused on the difference between receiving a MSW versus a LCSW (clinical social work?).. does it really matter which I choose? I do want to be able to conduct psychological testing in my career so that's why I'm considering an LCSW but I'm seeing essentially no graduate programs available in that field. Is there a better option for me in order to become a licensed therapist who can conduct psychological testing? Thanks so much to anyone who can help! Ava
  2. 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.
  3. Hi everyone! I've been reading through past and current threads and noticed School Psych didn't have anything for Fall 2020, so I decided we should have a place, too! What programs are you all planning to apply to? What criteria do you have? Does anyone have any advice - because I need it! I've completed my EdS but decided I'd like to continue on to get my PhD; here's my list so far: University of Minnesota, Northern Illinois University, Indiana State University, University of Kentucky, University of Wisconsin, University of Cincinnati, and Texas A&M. Let me know if you're applying to any of the same places and/or if you have any thoughts on these programs! I am excited to hear about everyone else's applications and how everything's going!
  4. Hello everyone!I am about to enter my 4th year of my psychology BA at SDSU. I plan on taking the GRE in the upcoming months. I currently have a 3.9 GPA. My plan is to eventually get a PhD so that I can become and educational testing psychologist (psychometrician) to help kids get accommodations in school.Apply to grad schools will be difficult for me because my dad was planning on helping me but he unexpectedly passed away in March. So now I have to figure everything out for myself. Here is what I have planned for applications so far-SDSU- Psych MAUCSD- Psych MAUC Merced- Psych PhDUC Riverside- Psych PhDI am doing MA for the more competitive schools and PhD for the less competitive schools. I am happy with my choices so far but am concerned that grad school apps will be too competitive and I will get denied from all four. Does anyone have any recommendations for other schools that I can apply for? Here are some of the important things--General Psych for MA or Clinical Psych for PhD-Low tuition around $10,000 or lower per year (my dad was the breadwinner in the family)-Preferably near San Diego so I can visit home every once in a while (SoCal/ West Arizona) I am willing to consider further school as long as they are low tuition (around $10,000 per year)I am just a little overwhelmed having to do this search by myself now.P.S. I would add CSU San Marcos to the MA list but I am not sure if the grad school acceptance is similar to how they do undergrad (if you apply to both CSUSM and SDSU then you would be accepted to CSUSM since it is the less competitive school and you would be denied from SDSU).
  5. Hello everyone, I have just started the process of looking at grad school and there's so much info it's overwhelming.

  6. Hello! Just saw the clinical/counseling thread and thought to start a forum for all applicants applying to social/personality psychologyPhD programs (app due in Fall 2020)! Working on my list of schools now, hopefully will post that by the end of May. I'm mostly interested in exploring subjective well-being and quality of life, with several approaches currently in mind - psychometrics - how to measure these traits accurately (including cross-lang, nation, culture) and efficiently self-regulation goal and meaning in life emotional regulation and stress-coping (a bit of mindfulness too!) cross-cultural effect I look forward to getting to know y'all, while learning more about these fields themselves as well as deciding which one to pursue (or maybe I dont need to make that decision yet?). Hope this is useful for y'all and good luck to everyone! :)
  7. Hi, I majored in Psychology at a top university in India. My undergrad GPA is low (3.04/4.0). However, I am currently doing some PG work in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to make up for my poor gpa (and a three year undergrad degree). By the time I submit my application, I'll have work exp of about 2 years. I want to know how else can I make up for my low GPA, if I want to apply to good HCI programs? Some schools I am looking at are - GTech, UofW, UofMaryland, etc. Do I even stand a chance?
  8. Hello all, So, I got into UChicago MAPSS. I applied to MAPSS in large part because am interested in switching fields from something more humanities-oriented to social psychology and thought the MAPSS program would be really a great way to transition fields before applying to social psychology PhD programs. I am fortunate enough to have received a scholarship which makes the program within the realm of affordable. Nevertheless, I'd need to take out a good amount of money in loans and spend all of my savings on living costs. Because of these costs, I'm a bit nervous about pursuing MAPSS as opposed to finding an RAship or research-oriented job. I'm especially nervous about taking on debt at a point in my life where conventional financial advice says it's critical for me to be saving. In my mind, the main advantage of turning down MAPSS to find an RAship/job would be that I won't be living with debt for the next x years of my life. The disadvantage of not doing MAPSS would be that my alternative plan of getting hired to a position relevant to social psychology research (ideally an RAship, but also adjacent jobs like survey research, decision sciences etc.) might not be realistic since I don't have immediate experience in that area of research. I have transferable skills, but there are plenty of candidates with those skills and direct experience. I'm also worried that some PhD committees might be suspicious of a prospective student who is lacking in demonstrated commitment to that field through a research degree. I figured I'd ask the lovely people of the internet for some advice on the matter. Excited to hear what y'all have to say
  9. Hello all! I never thought I'd make it back onto this website, but here I am. I graduate with my M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis here in a month from a top university in my field. It's a terminal masters degree, I'd say similar to M.S. in CMHC for those unfamiliar with ABA. It pushes a scientist-practitioner model strongly. In short, I provide a therapeutical service to individuals focusing on their behavior, changing behavior and using the science of behaviorism to teach new behaviors. I have a 4.0 graduate school average. Unfortunately, while here, I didn't really get involved in research. I was working as a practitioner throughout my entire master's and didn't have the time to join labs and I superrrr regret that now. Now, I am considering applying to PhD programs in school psychology or clinical psychology with an emphasis on child psychology in the next few years and am super concerned due to this lack of research experience. Following graduation, I will be employed as a psychology assistant at a mental health facility until I pass board certification, then I will be a behavior analyst working with children on the pediatric unit and working closely with counselors and psychologists on cases - so I will have the relevant clinical experience. The only "research" experience I do have are minor empirical scientist-practitioner studies as well as a methods paper/proposal for a capstone study I was /going/ to do, but due to COVID-19 I lost access to my participants and was unable to continue. My question is: how can I get involved in relevant research while I am working as a master's-level clinician in my field, but while not enrolled in a degree program? I will be located near a few universities, if that helps. Has anyone else had this experience? How should I reach out to people to assist with research? Thanks all 😁
  10. This forum is for people who have been accepted to the University of Iowa PhD program for any psych area! I am trying to get to know some of the people who I will be getting to know on campus. I have lived in Iowa all my life so if anyone has any questions about Iowa or more specifically Iowa City (housing, social life, professors, etc...) post them here and we can all share our thoughts. I am so excited to start and UIowa is great!
  11. Hello all. I'm not quite there yet, but for many reasons I'd like to pursue my higher education in the UK. I'm obtaining my 4-year undergraduate degree in America. Some reasons as to why I'd like to study in the UK are that it is the better financial decision for me, I believe the education style is overall better for my career aspirations, it will take less time, I have found Brits overall to be very engaging and pleasant people (of course not all will be, but in my experience thus far), and I loved Britain when I visited and have been aching to go back since. I haven't found much information online and looking at the entry requirements for various schools across the UK doesn't give me much information. Answers to any of these questions would be a great help. Can I go back to the USA and work there if I choose? Do UK graduate programs accept students right out of their undergraduate? Do UK PhD programs require a masters degree (not sure why I'm unable to find a straight answer for this)? Am I less likely to be accepted as an international student? Am I more likely to be accepted if I show intentions of staying in Britain afterward? How much clinical research is generally necessary? Any other information pertaining to this topic would be greatly appreciated. I feel very lost.
  12. Hello everyone, So I am currently leaning toward choosing the Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program at Fordham University. Unfortunately, I couldn't find more information about the program from people who have first- or second-hand knowledge of it. I have spoken to a couple of first-year students, but their experience is limited, and there were no opportunities to speak directly to more senior students. Can anyone shed any light on this program? I am particularly interested in how research-productive the students can be and how supportive is the program regarding clinical training since it seems to be done exclusively through externships. Thanks in advance!
  13. Hello. I just joined the forums because I need help but have no one to ask around me. I just got accepted to Columbia University's MA program in Social-Organizational (IO) Psychology. I understand that the program is mostly designed for students who are looking for a terminal program. I hear it is possible for students to continue their studies into a doctorate but it is not so common because the program itself isn't research based, but rather theory based. However, I don't want to rule out the option to obtain a PhD in case I do decide to continue my studies. The MA program at Columbia does not seem to be the ideal choice IF i decide to go all the way (for a PhD). On the other hand, I have also been accepted to Roosevelt University here in Chicago, for a PhD program. The school might not be as prestigious as Columbia University; however, it does give me an option to continue all the way for a PhD degree from the get go. I understand that Columbia University is a more prestigious institution known around the world, and furthermore, it is possible to continue all the way to a PhD, but I would be the minority and it is not the conventional route. However, If I end up deciding to go to Roosevelt University, it would be a more straightforward path towards a PhD. In conclusion, I guess what I am arguing with myself is whether I should choose a more prestigious school for an MA and limited opportunity for doctorate, or rather a local university where I can obtain an PhD at a more straightforward path. Thank you in advance for your input! I appreciate it.
  14. Hi All! So I am a online master's student at Arizona State University for my MS in psychology. I would love to move on to get my phD or psyD, however, I have ZERO research experience under my belt. I know that in order to even be considered for such a program, I need to obtain research experience for a year or two. The issue I have at hand is I also work full-time. I work a solid 8-5, M-F. The good news is that there's a university right across the street from my job, I'm just wary of any professors willing to take on a volunteer master student from another university with such limited availability. Also quitting my job is not a choice. I have way too many expenses I pay for living in San Diego, California. If anyone has any tips or suggestions and has gone through a similar situation as myself, please let me know. Thanks!
  15. I'm currently deciding between a top MSW program and a mid-level PsyD. I'm interested in private practice eventually and I know that I can do that with either degree. I'm drawn to the PsyD program because it offers more training, more education, and would put me in a position where I'm not limited to the jobs that I can apply for. I know that PsyDs are very costly, but I have spoken with my family and am very fortunate to be in a position where I would not graduate with insane amounts of debt. Would love to hear from people who have a PsyD and people who have their MSWs about your experiences and whether or not you felt prepared for clinical practice!
  16. Hello! I have recently received acceptances to the Clinical Psychology Psy.D. programs at both Rutgers GSAPP and the PGSP-Stanford Consortium. Both programs have solid APA match rates as well as a great faculty fit. Does anyone have any insight into the culture/opportunities available at both programs? I know that the program at Palo Alto is incredibly expensive, but is there anything about the training there that would make the cost worthwhile? Thanks in advanced!
  17. Hey guys, I am wondering if you or your friends have heard anything from Columbia University Teachers College about the admission into M.A. Program in Socia-Organizational Psychology (S/O Psychology). I have been admitted to the M.A Program of I/O Psychology from NYU, but still waiting for Columbia's decision since it would be my top choice to study at TC. (it's a long wait and kinda drives me crazy...) Lemme know if you are also waiting for hearing from them. Thanks!
  18. Has anyone heard from UAlbany about Clinical Psychology PhD admissions? I interviewed Feb 22nd at interview weekend and I REALLY want to attend. I recently emailed my potential PI to ask for an update (amid COVID-19 and such) and learned that I am on the waitlist with a couple people ahead of me, so they cant offer me admission yet. Does anyone know how the admissions process works at this school: It sounds like I'm not on a waitlist specific to my PI, but instead a program-wide waitlist...? I've been told they usually admit 6-7 people, any idea how my chances look?
  19. Hi Everyone, just wanted to start a thread where people can ask for opinions about psychology masters programs they are considering. Since most of these programs are unfunded and they all claim to prepare you for admission to PhD programs, I was hoping that former students / anyone that has knowledge of these programs can provide some insight on several topics: How much is the tuition? Is there funding available? Are you matched with a faculty mentor or are you admitted to the program generally? What was the quality of the research experience offered? Quality of the classes? Were you able to transfer most of the classes over towards your PhD degree or did you have to take them again? How much do you think it prepared you / improved your application for PhD? Misc. thoughts about the program I'll get the ball rolling and ask if anyone has any info on SDSU's MA program, Fordham's CRM program, or the Teachers College MA I got word from the director of Fordham's program that the tuition is in the ballpark of 50k for the 2 year program and I've read some less than favorable reviews of the TC program on here a little while ago so I was hoping to see if more people felt the same way. Thanks!
  20. Hi please help. I've applied to a few PhD. and Masters programs and haven't heard back from most but I got wait-listed for one PhD. program. Today I got accepted into the NYU Psychology M.A program after being rejected by the doctorate program and I wanted to know if it was worth enrolling in? I have 2 years of experience as an RA at a hospital and was hoping I could get into a decent PhD. program but if nothing works out should I accept the Masters program or would it be smarter to wait a year and apply to PhD programs in December? I'm the first one in my family to pursue higher education and I have nobody else to ask so I would really appreciate any input. Thanks a lot!
  21. I received an email on February 16th telling me I made it through the first level of screening and they would like me to go through a brief phone interview with a faculty member. Four days later, I received an email from the faculty member and we set up an interview time. On 2/24 we spoke on the phone for about 20 minutes. I felt like it went well! It has been a week and a half since the interview and now I'm just not sure what to expect. I'm sure I am being a bit inpatient lol, but I have received an offer from a different school and don't want to hold onto it too long and take the spot away from someone who got waitlisted! Does anyone have any advice? Or if you applied to UD, have you heard back yet? Thanks!
  22. Hi guys! I am very interested in the Doctorate Program offered by the Counselling Psychology Department at TCD, Ireland. I was wondering if anyone could share their experience there? Also, I heard that there is difficulty obtaining work permits for international students, can anyone shed light on that? Finally, is it necessary to be registered with the Psychological Society of Ireland prior to applying for the program? Answers to these would be much appreciated!
  23. Hi Everyone, I have been an active member of this forum for a while now. It has helped me through the application process This cycle and has tormented me with each interview results coming in that I didn’t get lol. Regardless, I made it this application cycle and after 21 applications, 4 interviews (I had 9 but went to 4) and 4 offers, I’ve made my decision!!!! Well that was two weeks ago and now I’m just sitting here waiting. Now what do I do? To my fellow admitted people, what are you doing to pass the time lol? To anyone in a clinical or counseling psychology Ph.D program, do you have any advice on what I should do to prepare myself for the doctoral grind. General or detailed answers are welcomed. thanks you guys!
  24. Lots of threads for MFT PhD programs but I couldn't find one for Master's programs! Where did you apply? Where have you heard back from? I applied to SDSU, Jefferson, U of Oregon, and Appalachian State. As of yesterday have been invited to interview at U of Oregon (2/13) and Appalachian State (2/21).
  25. Hi! A little blurb about me before I delve into my situation. I graduated from this master's program in experimental psychology in Indiana back in May 2019. But since I didn't get my thesis finished until July, my school put down my official graduation month as August 2019. During my time at this school, I worked at this research lab that consisted of me, my adviser, and undergraduate RAs (FYI, they change every semester). This lab I used to work at examined attention. I graduated with a 3.89 GPA and after I finished my coursework and defended my thesis, I moved back home. I know this sounds weird but currently, I'm working at this place where I used to work during my gap year (which is a before-and-after school program filled with kids that have special needs and kids who don't) after I left this lab at a local university due to my conflicting research interests with that of my PI. He told me that it's better if I go work at another lab. I'm currently reapplying for jobs as a research assistant in psychology so I can go back and get my PhD in clinical psychology. Could I possibly get another job as a research assistant at another psychology lab? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
