  1. Hi y'all! I'm currently an undergrad senior applying for master programs for the Fall 2021 cycle. I'm interested in interdisciplinary studies combining education, psychology, and data science/statistics. Below is my profile, and I appreciate any comments/feedback/recommendations! Undergrad: a prestigious (I think?) women's liberal arts college Major: Psychology (currently doing an honor thesis), Quantitative Economics GPA: 3.99/4.0 (Psychology: 3.96 Econ: 4.0) GRE: I haven't taken GRE yet, but I hope to get a score of 325+. Coursework: Psychology: cognitive development (summer school, A), language acquisition (A), psycholinguistics (A), developmental psychopathology (A) Statistics/Data Science: research design (i.e. ANOVA, A), multiple regression (A), educational statistics (A), Bayesian theory (currently taking), econometrics (currently taking) Software: Stat: R (familiar), Python (intro), SPSS (intro), STATA (intro), SQL (minimal) Research: Qualtrics (familiar), Filemaker (familiar), Lookit (will be familiar) Experience: research assistant at my undergrad institution language acquisition lab for 2 years; hands-on experience on various projects; the most inspiring one is to conduct Rasch analysis on a language assessment test summer researcher at the same lab (language acquisition lab) remote summer intern (because of the pandemic) in a developmental lab at a very strong research university; main job is to test children through Zoom remote research assistant starting from this September in a language acquisition lab at another strong research university; current job is to design an experiment on Lookit a remote HR member at a non-profit org in China that aims to empower underadvantaged children through remote education TA of intro stat classes for Psychology, Government, and Sociology LOR: a LOR from my PI at my undergrad institution language acquisition lab; I have taken many classes with her and have worked with her for 2 years, so she knows me well; also she knows a lot of ppl in developmental psych a LOR from my summer internship PI a LOR from my current research lab PI; however, I have just started working with her and asking for a LOR right away seems very purposeful; OR a LOR from a professor I have taken a class with Award and funding: summer research fellowship at my undergrad institution summer internship funding conference funding (will present a poster at a data science conference deriving from my class proj) dean's list every year School list: Stanford educational data science (EDS): this is my fav, but I'm afraid I cannot meet some of the math prerequisites; also it's a brand new program Columbia Teacher's College - SMART: this program aligns with my interest well, but the curriculum seems somewhat easy to me UPenn: I actually haven't found a program that fits me well at UPenn; but I love UPenn and Philly so much!! Boston College - Psychometrics: I don't know much about this program, but from its website I like it This is a short school list, so I need your help to give me some recommendations!! Thanks
  2. I am currently an associate level clinical social worker working in an inpatient hospital as a DBT/RO-DBT therapist. I still have about two more years until I become an LCSW in my state. I graduated with my BSW at GMU (3.89 GPA) and MSW at UW (3.98 GPA) with one co-authored publication from my bachelors around dementia care using music interventions. I am currently in a professional training program to become a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist on top of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My question is would I benefit more from a PhD in Psychology or Social Welfare/Social Work? My long-term goals are to open up an expressive arts therapy center catering primarily towards immigrants, first-gen, and international students that overall provides affordable mental health services for these populations as well as provide a space for social work students to develop themselves clinically as a practicum placement. I would also like to become a social work professor to teach and do research back in the DC area on top of working towards opening up a therapeutic center. Although these goals are ambitious, my main priority is to become a professor after getting my LCSW and REAT. My primary research interests would be revolving around parentification, mood & personality disorders, over-controlled coping mechanisms, culture shock, social withdrawal (hikikomori), and creating new interventions around expressive arts therapy. I am only 23 and a first-gen student, so a PhD sounds daunting, but I believe that is my next goal I would like to work towards after I obtain my licenses. I am just unsure if there are any true advantages for getting a PhD in Psychology compared to Social Work. I love social work's social justice foundation, but I believe psychology would help me develop a stronger clinical perspective. I was also considering University of Michigan's Joint PhD in Social Work and Psychology.
  3. Hi, I'm currently applying for my masters in I/O psychology. I'm mostly applying to American schools, but am considering also applying to the University of Waterloo in Canada. All of undergrad I've been told how important research experience is for grad school. I'm wondering if the same mindset applies when it comes to Canadian grad schools? Or is work experience more valued? Thank you!
  4. 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! :)
  5. Hello! I need some advice. I want to apply to schools in the US, Canada, and UK, but there's an issue... In the US, students must commit to a grad school by April 15th. In the UK, it seems as though schools may not be releasing decisions until June/July (specifically DClinPsy programs). Does anyone have advice for navigating this timing issue? I want to apply in both countries, but that's pointless if I have to either turn down all US programs or commit to one US program before even knowing if I have a place in a UK program.
  6. Hey y'all! I'm currently applying to Clinical Psychology PhD programs for Fall 2021 admissions. This will be my first time every going through the application cycle, so yes, I'm very excited and very nervous Here's my conundrum though, I'm still not sure about my research interests. I just graduated from with my MA in Psychology this Spring, so I have had 2 years of 'official' psychology experience, if you may, and while I thoroughly enjoyed every core class I took (biopsych, ethics, cognitive, stats, etc), I'm still not sure about what exactly I want to research for the next 5 years... Almost every topic seems so exciting to pursue! And it's like this buffet where I want to eat everything (I mean, try every kind of sub topic haha). So, my main question is, how did you discover or get to know what exactly you want research? How did you know that a specific sub-field was 'the one' for you? Any advice or perspective will be really appreciated! Thanks y'all!
  7. For the last 3 months during this lockdown I have been trying to figure about if there's any relationship between Astrology and psychology , like are they kind of inter related to each other. Because psychology kind of makes me consious and aware all the time if i am doing right or wrong . Also at the same time does going to an astrologer and knowing what is your future upcomings kind of helpful or not, because it is bothering me for a long time as in my mind it has created that space now.
  8. Hello everyone! I'm getting ready to apply for doctoral programs in counseling and clinical psychology (my interests overlap in both fields and is explained in my personal statement) and I'm starting to think about who to ask for my letters of recommendation! I've been a research assistant for about 4 years now and can think of four professors to ask who will be able to provide strong letters of recommendation. However, most applications state to list three recommenders. Would it help to list a fourth? Or should I only submit three? If you would only recommend three, could you help me eliminate someone? I have listed the people I'm thinking about below: The people I'm thinking of asking are: 1) The professor I was a Lab Coordinator for in Undergrad. He was also my supervisor for my honors thesis. Although I am not published yet, I will be listed as an author on future publications coming from a doctoral student's dissertation. 2) The professor who is currently mentoring my masters thesis. I know him on a really good level and have taken classes with him as well and I am confident he will be able to write a strong letter. 3) A professor who I am a research assistant in a lab with currently. He is famous in his field and offered to write me a letter already 4) The director of the McNair scholars program from my undergraduate institution. I know her on a really good level as well (she mentored my summer research internship project, allowed me to travel to research conferences, and is honestly just a saint) Thank you so much everyone! I wish you all the best of luck on your upcoming applications, or if you're already in a program, success in your classes and projects!
  9. Hi, I have a question about the materials to include on CV/resume. I need to update my resume and CV but I'm not sure whether I should include this activity. I joined a social psych lab (clinical applicant with overlapping social psych interests here) mid June but we've been doing nothing but a Zoom meeting once a week. We usually talk about PhD students' projects or share our thoughts on the latest publication so I guess it's better than nothing but still.... I'm anxious that my research experience during undergrad years (graduated 2019 Spring) and one research I started this May won't be enough. I want to use this social psych lab experience but weekly discussion and project critiques (of someone else's) without actually doing RA job isn't exactly "research productivity" I'm afraid.
  10. Hi! I've looked at quite a few threads for fully funded and partially funded psychology master's degree programs. Does anyone know of any fully or partially funded clinical psychology programs? A lot of the threads had responses of people who did not want to disclose their institution because they didn't want to be identified. If you feel comfortable, feel free to message me, or I can message you. I got into a great clinical psychology master's program in a past cycle. While they did offer a small assistantship, the program did not have tuition waivers or scholarships (tuition was quite expensive and the cost of living was veryyyyy expensive).
  11. I am a recent graduate from Rutgers University - New Brunswick who majored in Cognitive Science (neuroscience track) and minored in philosophy. I'm looking to apply to Cognitive Psychology/Cognitive Neuroscience/Behavioral Neuroscience Ph.D. programs this upcoming cycle. My overall GPA is a 3.52 (3.76 major GPA, idk if I should include this in my CV as well). I've been doing research at a lab at my undergraduate institution for about a year now, and will hopefully continue doing so full-time until August 2020. I can probably get two LORs from my lab, and another from a past professor. I unfortunately don’t have any publications; due to COVID-19 the one I was slated to be included in was pushed back. I took an official GRE diagnostic test and scored a 318 (160 in Verbal, 158 in Quant), and I'm shooting for a 320 (160 in both sections) by August, which I believe is quite possible. I may retake the GRE in November in order to bring it up to a 325, since I would like to offset my low-tier-ish GPA. My current list of schools thus far is below. However, I do think I may switch out some of the more difficult to get into schools for some not-so-difficult ones. I don't really know how competitive UC Davis and UCI are in terms of their psych graduate programs, but I really want to get into those two schools the most. My question(s): How competitive am I for these schools (I guess chance me haha)? What other mid-tier programs are there for cognitive psychology, if most on my list will be too difficult? What advice do you have for someone overwhelmed by the application process? Rutgers Newark University of Maryland UCI UMich Boston University NYU University of Delaware UC Davis UCSD (maybe) Thank you so much for your help, and I hope you're all staying safe!
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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).
  16. Hello everyone, I have just started the process of looking at grad school and there's so much info it's overwhelming.

  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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 😁
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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!
