  1. I noticed there's usually one WAITLIST thread every year. This is where you can post about schools that you are waiting to hear back from. Consequently, if you are holding multiple offers and would like to get opinions, you can post here as well!

    Fall 2019 School Psychology Applicants

    Hi everyone! I decided to create a thread for the peeps applying for school psychology programs for Fall 2019! What schools are you applying to? Are you going for an EdS or PhD program? How did you pick your programs? In general, how is the whole process going for you all? I hope I can get people to add on to this because it would be nice to have people to relate to haha. I am personally applying for PhD programs. My finalized list (so far) includes: Northern Arizona University, University of Memphis, University of Washington, and University of Virginia. I am excited to hear about everyone else!

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    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!
  4. 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
  5. So I applied to Columbia Teacher's College School Psychology PhD program in November, and I was wondering if competitive applicants are contacted for interviews? I applied in November and have not heard a word yet. I think that the interview process varies per department (not all programs require an interview at TC), so I was wondering if anyone had any experience specifically with the school psychology program. Also, there's a chance that I may have seriously fucked up... I remember submitting a Resume but not a CV (I don't think that Teachers College required a CV, which I found surprising, but I could have possibly overlooked or misunderstood that in the application). Did other people applying to TC submit a CV? anyone remember if it was required? I may have f*cked up, but there's always next year (I only applied to two programs lol) although a gap year or two between grad and undergrad wouldn't be the worst.
  6. Hello everyone, I've made a few posts on gradcafe that were unsuccessful, probably due to how wordy and niche the questions were.. Hopefully this question is more straightforward/understandable. I was wondering if there's any guideline for getting a sense of a PhD program's strength given that there's often 2 "types" of rankings-- overall ranking and the PhD/field's ranking. Specifically, a school may be well known in a general sense (i.e. Rice or Dartmouth), but are ranked below top 50 for the specific PhD program of interest (i.e. psychology). The reverse can also happen, where a school that isn't well known generally ranks top 10 in a field of choice. Which measure should you rely on, or how do you mediate differences between these rankings? Of course, rankings aren't the most important factor to consider. But I ask this because rankings can be one piece of information when deciding between programs, and because I hear academic employers take ranking of your PhD into account. Thank you!
  7. Hey guys! Thought I'd make a thread for the Quant program applicants for Fall 2019. Feel free to post the number of applications you filled and how's the wait going. I'm an international applicant and I've filled 6 applications (5 US, 1 Canada) and I've been visiting gradcafe just to read how others are holding up. My anxiety is bad due to the wait.

    Preparing for Clinical PhD Interview

    So it looks like a few people have heard some positive news from grad schools about upcoming interviews starting next month. How is everyone preparing? I know that I did some initial preparation when I was completing my applications, but I'm not too sure where to go from here. Every POI has published material, ongoing grants and recently completed work, lab websites/department biographies... But what is interview day/weekend really about and what kinds of questions should we be preparing for and what questions should we be asking as we are on these interviews? Happy Holidays!
  9. Hi! I will be interviewing at Hofstra in a couple weeks and was wondering if anyone on here is in or is familiar with the program. I was really excited to apply and get an interview, but am now worried about financial aid.... I read that tuition is not fully covered. Anyone have any experiences or further thoughts about this program?
  10. Hi all! Since most apps are due, I thought it would be nice to have a place to post as interview invites start to come in (in addition to the results page)! Here's a template for the info to post: School: Type: PhD/PsyD Date of invite: Type of invite: Mass email, email from POI, phone call, etc. Interview date(s): It looks like there's also a thread that's been started in SDN: https://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/2018-2019-phd-psyd-interview-invite-thread.1288337/ in case anyone follows that site as well. Good luck to everyone!
  11. Hi all. Here's the situation: I was recently accepted to a well-ranked MSW program but a lack of significant scholarship assistance has led to a real existential crisis for me. (I was already kind of having one before, but this just threw it into sharper relief for obvious reasons.) I picked Social Work because I wanted to help people (I know I sound like a 4th grader when I say this but I can't think of a better way of phrasing it), and because I needed to choose a direction for my life, basically. My undergraduate years were characterized by a series of poor choices and I ended up getting a fairly useless degree in a program that only exists at my university. The only classes I really enjoyed in undergrad were ones that had something to do with religion, which is funny because I'm an atheist, but I just find the subject fascinating. However, I know that I will never be a candidate for a traditional religious studies grad program because I have no knowledge of ancient languages. I am interested in psychology generally (obviously, or I wouldn't have decided to pursue an MSW) but what really fascinates me is the intersection of psychology and religion. I'm also interested in mystical experiences and the emergent use of psychedelic drugs for depression and other disorders. I guess my question is, what would I have to do to have a chance at getting into a Psychology MA program? Am I just a hopeless case? I've taken Intro to Psychology and Sociology courses at a community college, and got A's in both, but I know this isn't enough. How many more classes would I have to take before I could potentially be competitive? Money is obviously an issue - even community college classes aren't cheap, and I doubt they would impress adcoms. Also, I assume there is some kind of writing sample required? I did write a thesis for my program that discussed psychology and religion with regards to a specific topic I'd prefer not to specify here, but it was garbage. I mean, it was a literal, actual, flaming pile of crap. I don't know why they let me graduate, let alone escape with my GPA more or less intact. I was severely depressed at the time and also just burnt out and upset that I'd wasted so much money on a degree that wouldn't help me advance in academia OR make me any more employable than the average high school graduate. I apologize if this a stupid question but I guess I'm just wondering if this is a realistic path to pursue, and if so, how to go about it. If I'm being unrealistic, tell me. I'm passionate about this but I am also a realist, and I'm not interested in wasting years of my life toiling away in an attempt to achieve something that will never happen.
  12. Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone has heard back yet for an interview from the MA Child Study and Education program?

    Interview Attire?

    I have been invited to interview for 3 schools with no choice in the dates and unfortunately, the first interview is my first choice program (Applied Developmental Psych at Fordham). I feel like I have a fairly decent grasp on how to prepare and feel comfortable with the interview process itself, but I have no idea how to dress. I have read so many conflicting reports ranging everywhere from business casual to "it would have been embarrassing to not be in a suit". As a female, the breadth of outfit types is stressing me out more than anything else! Also, what can I expect from an open house (as opposed to an interview) and a department reception the night prior to interviews?
  14. Hey GradCafesians, I feel like I am at a grocery store choosing which red sauce to buy for pasta, except I will be eating sauce for the next 3 - 6 years. I have done extensive research on the varieties of red sauce (grad schools), yet am still indecisive. My name is Louie Markovitz a graduate from U of Missouri with a plan to apply for schools this fall. My main goal is to become a therapist and open my own private practice with other licensed therapists. Secondarily, I am also interested in doing clinical research at a University. I lean towards alternative therapies such as mindfulness (e.g., dbt) and spiritual approaches as well as working with patients with anxiety and mood disorders. However, I also see the benefit of going to a more normative institution to establish a traditional therapeutic framework, seeking specialized training after graduation. Where my decision making falls short is (obviously) the amount of paths I can take to become a therapist. PhD, PsyD, LPC, MSW ect. I have a 3.7 GPA, with 155 Verbal and 148 Math (ouch; might take again), and sig. amount of therapeutic experience in clinical and academic settings. If I were to apply to doctoral programs, I would reluctantly take the GRE again. I currently am leaning towards masters because of networking purposes and am honestly scared of being locked into a doctoral program for 5-6 years that may not be a good fit. On the other hand, masters programs are typically not paid for (right?) and getting a masters and PhD separately would take significantly longer then going straight for a PhD. I wanted to hear some of your experiences on obtaining these degrees and advice to a youngin' with both formal and informal therapeutic interests. Your help is much appreciated! Louie Markovitz
  15. Hey guys! I`ve studied Psychology in Romania, my converted GPA is 3.8, and I will take my GRE exam soon, I got some tutoring and I`m doing really good at the simulation. I`d really want to get into a Social or Cognitive (or combined) Psychology program in USA, but I see most require research, and most people here say you don`t really stand any chance without research experience. The thing is, here there are not so many research opportunities, and I`m willing to go for international research, but I`m not really sure where I can find any. I`ve looked up on APA site, but most of them are not suitable for ?international students. Also I found some research internships in Europe but they are exagerately expensive. And to be honest, I`d prefer USA . Could anyone help with this? Another question would be if I should still apply to any programs this year or wait till I get some research ? I forgot to mention, as a career path, I am actually interested in research, and I`m looking forward to working in an academic environment. Thanks ^^

    Any other researchers in this boat?

    Hi! I've applied this past application cycle to PhD programs in or related to behavioral genetics. My most recent research job was a three-month gig in the middle of 2018 (I had a longer researcher job before that). I worked on a short freelancing project after that and now I ideally want to get some seasonal/project-based/temporary research work. While I may just end-up getting some random temp job in the intervening time, I think being in a research position will be advantageous if I get any interviews. But any of you who does what I do probably knows that people who do scientific research usually want to hire workers who can stay-on for awhile, a thing I can't commit to now given that I could be in grad school in the Fall. I've reached out to researchers and tried to be forthcoming about my situation, but no luck so far. Does anyone have any advice? If it helps, I live in Chicago.
  17. Hey - anyone heard from UC-Berkeley, University of Chicago, Columbia University, or UPenn for psychology PhD interviews?

    GRE retake question

    Hi, I recently look my GRE and received a 310: 157 V and 153 Q, AWA I am estimating between a 4 -5. I am planning on applying to clinical psychology programs in two years. I am unsure whether or not it is worth it to take the GRE again considering I seem to be at the cutoff, although at the low end for most clinical programs. I have 3 years of undergrad research experience and served as research coordinator my last year. I have two current publications, one of which I have first authorship on, poster presentations, and potentially another first authorship manuscript. I also have one year experience post bac as an RA with an IVY league clinical lab and recently accepted another 2 year clinical neuropsych RA position that could lead to publications in my areas of interest. I also have a very strong extra curriculars and volunteer experience. My undergrad GPA was a 3.44 and major GPA of 3.9. I was wondering if I should focus more on publications and clinical involvement with my current position or is my GRE not competitive enough. I am open to hearing any input you have for me. Thank you.

    Psychology Doctoral Programs?

    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!
  20. Hi all, I’m a current grad student going to school for my masters in school counseling. I majored in psychology in undergrad but for a while wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. My undergrad GPA wasnt great (3.1). I’m on track to do well in my masters program (4.0 so far), but I also just started my program this past semester. I don’t have a lot of research experience aside from some typical undergrad research. I recently asked my current academic advisor how I can make myself a stronger PhD applicant (and if it’s realistic for me) so we will be meeting in the future to discuss. Part of my unpreparedness is the fact that I wasn’t sure if I definitely wanted to go this route until recently. It has always been in my mind but after starting my Master’s program, I realized this is something I definitely want to do. I live in Boston so I’d hope to apply to some of the schools around here (BU/Northeastern/UMB/Lesley) but open to applying elsewhere. I’m interested in developmental psychology/school psychology. However, will my GPA in my current program be enough to outweigh my undergrad GPA? What about research experience? I’m trying to find out how I can get more experience here. I did average on the GRE and would definitely retake them. I know no one can give me definite answers here but hoping some people can speak from experience!

    Dissertation survey

    Hi everyone! I'm hoping you'll all do me a huge favour and fill out my dissertation survey for my undergraduate empirical project! Seriously lacking in participants and all the info and survey is in the link below: https://www.esurveycreator.co.uk/s/bb4338d Thanks in advance!
  22. Anyone else already submit their applications, and are now wondering why they gave themselves the extra weeks of waiting????
  23. Hello all! I am applying to Clinical Psychology Ph.D. programs and I have a question about experiment descriptions for my research and subject experience. I was a research subject first, then I was a research assistant for the same study. I have separated my CV into research experience and volunteer experience. I explained the experiment in each section. Is it redundant to explain the same experiment twice, in two different sections if the description is the same? Or is it better to name the experiment in the first description and just list the name when I refer to it later in my CV, removing the repeated description? I don't want to waste their time, but I don't want to seem as though I wasn't thorough. Thank you!
