  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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?
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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).
  11. 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!
  12. Hey all! I didn't see many forums for the counseling and other related master's and I've been obsessively starting to check my email for interview invites so put yours below! School Name: Program: (MHC, MSW, MFT, etc.) Date invite received: Interview date: if you want
  13. Did anyone on here get invited to Texas Woman's University interview day for the M.A. in counseling psychology? Would love to meet some people before the actual day!
  14. I’m in Toronto and have several GRE study books that I’d like to sell or possibly giveaway. Can anyone recommend anywhere to post them online? Alternatively- is anyone in need of some?
  15. Hi all, For my dissertation I am looking at the link between body image and compassion. I would be so grateful if you could fill out my questionnaire. It should only take about 15-20 minutes to fill out, it is a few short tick box questions and a short expressive writing task. Please find the link below: https://herts.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_202NxYOmk2IrIeF
  16. Hi all! As many of us may still be optimistically waiting to receive invitations to interviews, I was wondering if people could post the dates of interviews they know about for certain programs. This can help folks get an idea of if they're likely to be accepted or not. e.g. University of Utah - PhD in Psychology - 2/7/20
  17. So I heard today that the POI I'm interviewing in-person with in a couple weeks invited 13 other people for an in-person interview. Isn't this pretty rude considering the program does not reimburse travel expenses and this gives me a <10% chance of getting an offer? Apparently this is not the norm for this school and this PI is a special case. Would this give anyone else red flags? Like you really couldn't whittle your choices down to even a top 6? I don't even know how I could stand out from 13 other probably very talented people. How does this help the PI make a decision? The whole thing seems so bizarre.
  18. We should be hearing about interviews pretty soon! Here's a template for the info to post that was used last year: School: Type: PhD/PsyD Date of invite: Type of invite: Mass email, email from POI, phone call, etc. Interview date(s): Good luck, everyone!
  19. OK so I applied to the following programs: 1) Drexel 2) Temple 3) Fordham 4) Teachers College 5) City College 6)Rutgers 7) LIU Brooklyn 8 Rowan 9) FDU 10) William Paterson (PSYD) I have a 3.979 GPA undergrad, 4.0 in psych. 4.0 GPA MS degree in psychology and have research experience at undergrad and graduate level with publications as wells and textbook authorship. My GRE was 162(V), 157(Q) and 4.5(W). I've beefed up my application from last times that I tried to apply (where I was told get more research experience - and I did). So far - no dice. For people who got interviews in any of these programs - what did your stats look like? Feeling at a loss
  20. Hi! So last February of 2019 I was waitlisted to Marymount University's forensic and legal psychology master's program! I was told I was in the top third out of 40-50 people. I have been told by one person that had applied to this program that the year previous to that she was waitlisted and that for 2019 she got admitted. Do you think the chances would be that good for me as well? I am definitely re applying this year and I just hope the same outcome goes for me, where I was waitlisted last year and then admitted this year. For this particular program, they say they get around 200 applicants and accept about 95 students. Thoughts? Thank you guys!
  21. 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!
  22. I am stressing over everything right now. Do programs generally contact you if you have missing documents such as LORs, test scores? Or is it all on the online portal so as long as there are no outstanding items then you are good?
  23. I am currently a Psychology major (junior) and am stressing about whether or not to withdraw from a class that I might get a C in. It’s been a roller coaster deciding my career path but I have finally decided on attending a Ph. D. program for clinical (or forensic) psychology after my undergrad. It should be noted that I also plan on either doing Post Bacc or getting my Masters to boost my resume with research and letters of rec to further show my dedication to applying to a Clinical Psychology Ph. D. program (as I know they are very competitive). I started out planning on Med School, but Sophomore year I changed my path to Physicians Assistant school, withdrawing from my Physics class which I was about to receive a C in. I changed my major to Psychology (because I loved psychology) and planned on just filling my electives with the science classes necessary for PA programs (i.e. organismal bio, organic chem, etc.). Here I am, now a junior, and after getting into my psychology classes and assisting with some research, I decided that psychology was my passion. BUT I am in a crisis as I am currently enrolled in Microbiology (as one of my electives) and I may get a C in the course. I have a 3.87 but, if I receive a C I will be bumped down to a 3.75 and that worries me for applying to not only a masters/post bacc programs but also a PhD programs. I know it is still a relatively high GPA but I really want to increase my competitiveness as much as possible and strive to get as close to a 4.0 as I can. I guess my question is, if I withdraw from this class, will graduate programs (masters/post bacc/phd) care? I would have two Ws on my transcript and although they are not considered to be classes relevant to my major, it still worries me. PLEASE HELP!
  24. Hi all, I'll be graduating in May with an MSSW and I plan to return to school but I'm struggling deciding which degree to pursue. While I enjoy the clinical aspect of social work and the ability to give therapy, I realized that I'm really interested in advocating for disadvantaged populations on a macro/systematic level. I want to study social systems and policies and create interventions and solutions to problems in the real world, internationally and domestically. I'm really passionate about social justice and I'm looking into Master's of Public Policy programs and considering applying. But I don't know the likelihood of me being accepted as I have no formal training in policy and my bachelor's is in psychology. Which brings me to the next part of my question... Having studied it in undergrad, I'm really passionate about psychology and I can't shake the idea of wanting to further my studies in the field and receive the highest degree in psychology. I've been looking into Phd Psychology programs that have a developmental focus. I'm specifically interested in studying human behavior and childhood/adolescent development and using this understanding to inform interventions. I know Georgetown has a dual MPP/PhD Psychology program which sounds ideal for me. While Georgetown's is renowned for the policy program, I don't know about the quality of their PhD Psychology program. But I cannot find many other dual degree programs like this. (I have been looking into NYU's Psychology and Social Intervention program). Also I don't have much research experience, and I know this is a priority in PhD Psychology programs, so if I decide to apply to Phd Psych programs, I would first have to get research experience under my belt first. So that's my dilemma. Do I get a Master's Public Policy/MPP? Or a PhD in Psychology? Or try to do both? Any advice, direction, or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  25. Hi everyone! I'm curious to know if any Americans on here have decided to pursue doctoral studies in clinical psychology in the UK. If so, I'd love to hear more about your story (Were you able to practice in the UK afterward? Did you decide to go back to the US to practice instead? Did you have issues with either of those two routes work eligibility-wise? Etc.). Since this tends to be more of a unique case, "Americans hoping to study/practice clinical psychology in the UK" turns up some pretty murky Internet search results, so I'd love some insight. ?
