  1. Hi. I'm a rising senior (undergrad) planning on applying to doctoral programs this fall in need of some guidance. Right now, I am leaning towards applying to Psy.D. programs. I just don't love research. I am pretty neutral about it, but I know it is something I don't want to do for my career. I know all about the funding situation, but I am fortunate enough to be in a financial position where that is not a major concern. Obviously, I would still prefer funded programs. Because of my neutral feelings regarding research and my preference for clinical work, I have been pretty set on the Psy.D. fo
  2. 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 a
  3. 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 experi
  4. 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!
  5. Hello everyone, First time posting so please forgive me if this is addressed elsewhere. Does anyone know if Midwestern University - Glendale's PsyD programs ranks their waitlist? If so, how did you find out what rank you are on the waitlist? Thank you all
  6. What are people's thoughts on contacting admissions to check on your status or to ask if all acceptance decisions have been extended post interview? If you know some people have already recieved acceptances, is it okay to ask or could that possibly "red flag" you?
  7. I was recently given an interview for the Clinical Psych PsyD program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology - Irvine, CA. The interview is not until next month but I wasn’t sure about the program or how their interviews are formatted. I’ve done some research on the school but still am not sure about the program. I know that it is CBT and Psychoanalysis focused and that it is currently in the process of APA accreditation. If anyone can give me information about their program, what their school is like, or how their interview process works/questions they may pose i
  8. A poll to assess where in the interview notification process Pacific University currently stands.
  9. Hey everyone -- Just browsing this forum has been helpful as there is a lot of bad or misleading information online about various psychology/social work/counseling programs. I was hoping others could help with some advice about my specific objective and situation. Application competitiveness aside, I'd appreciate any thoughts about/answers to the questions below. Thank you in advance! Objective: I'd like to become a clinical psychotherapist, transitioning out of my work in public health (social determinants of health, more specifically) to direct clinical practice. Situat
  10. Hello! I am a senior psychology student at Texas A&M. After graduation, I want to work in a clinical setting where I can work one on one with patients in talk therapy. Perhaps in marriage and family - more along the lines of counseling psychology. I am stuck between pursuing a Psy.D or a Master’s degree. As I’m not sure which is the better fit. Let me know what you guys think
  11. Hi everyone, I am planning to apply for a Ph.D./PsyD program in Clinical/Counseling Psych. From what I know, not many international students are in the Psychology program. I am so lost, as I don't have anyone to ask advice from. Does anyone in our forum who is an F1 student and already attend a program, planning to apply? Thank you!
  12. The anticipation is killing me! I have noticed that two people have posted acceptances and I am wondering when I will be contacted with a decision. Anyone else going through this as well? Anyone have an idea of when we will hear by?? Asking for a friend! (this is post-interview)
  13. Hey all, applicant coming straight from undergrad here! I've narrowed my choices down to two PsyD programs: Loyola Maryland and University of Indianapolis. This is a really tough decision. Both schools are ranked highly, both have great faculty, students at both seem to love their programs, and both cities are attractive. What could break this tie? Anyone who goes/has gone there have an opinion? Thank you and good luck in your decision making as well!
  14. Hi everyone! I have my first interview this Tuesday and Wednesday and wanted to create a place where we can debrief after the interviews. We can share anything from what everyone wore to actual questions and itineraries, as well as hopes and fears post-interview. Hopefully comparing notes will help ease anxieties!
  15. 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!
  16. 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
  17. I'm currently deciding between two schools (PGSP and Pepperdine), and it seems like there's no wrong choice! Both programs provide an amazing education, and within the psych community have great reputations. The questions that I keep coming back to are: 1) How much do stats matter if they're still top 25 schools, and 2) how much does a school's "reputation" to the layperson matter? (e.g.: If you have a private practice, would a client be more likely to seek a psychologist from Pepperdine versus Palo Alto University) Can anyone speak to either of these from experience?
  18. Hi there, I'm looking to apply to PsyD (not PhD) programs this coming fall and was wondering if anyone here had a good idea of which ones have the best reputations. I know to find APA accredited schools, but beyond that, it is hard to tell which are most favorably viewed by leaders in the field. Thanks!
  19. Hi there! I am a recent UCLA grad with a psychology B.A. In the fall I will be applying to PsyD programs. The trouble is, I am having a hard time identifying which schools have the best reputation within the psychology community and what will make my application strongest. If anyone else out there has a PsyD I would love some advice on the subject. Thanks!
  20. Hi! I'm new to this forum but have a question about what my options might be for postgraduate studies in counseling psychology. Here's a bit of a background: I'll graduate in May 2019 from Penn State with bachelor's degrees in journalism and psychology with likely around a 3.7 GPA, and I've spent most of my undergraduate career stuck between those two degrees (essentially debating whether I wanted to go to graduate school for psychology or enter into a communications-related job right out of school). For that reason, most of the extracurricular activities/work experience I've had has been in t
  21. Hey guys, it's my first time here and I have a lot of questions in my head. So pardon me if this is going to be exhaustive, but I could do with any guidance/support I can get on here. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ME: I'm a 26 year old, Australian National (well, third culture kid) that has grown up across three countries. As a disciple of Psychology this upbringing has allowed me to interact/develop a diverse clientele. I have the following qualifications/ GPA as accredited by the World Education Service ( United States equivalence): - Bachelors in Psychology ( Honours),
  22. Hi guys - I've been lucky enough to be accepted to three and waitlisted to two PhD and PsyD programs. As advised, I'm trying to go about the process of comparing and contrasting the benefits and requirements of each program. I've had a lot of luck gathering the kind of "baseline" info for each program - except for one. Though there is a helpful current student answering some questions, I have about 1,000 of them (as you do when preparing to embark upon 4-7 years and potentially thousands in debt) and I can't get anyone to let me see the program handbook. Is that at all normal? I really feel th
  23. Hello! This is my first post here and I'm looking for some feedback, advice, and your experience in the fields of behavior analysis and psychotherapy. I have a career dilemma. Long time ago I got a BS in Animal Bio, then became interested in Psych and behavior. Now I have been working as an RBT (registered behavior technician) for 4 years with children on autism spectrum, and provide in-home services related to problem behaviors, and debating whether I should get a masters in applied behavior analysis (ABA) or get a masters/PsyD and practice as a therapist. ABA is a fast growing and
  24. Hey guys, so I just wanted to create a very specific topic for those who have applied to Nova's PsyD program. I know some people have gotten interview invitations and hope to hear from you. I have visited the campus and assisted an event about their Psychology programs so feel free to ask questions and I'll be happy to answer them to the best of my abilities.
  25. Recent graduate with my BA in Sociology, really looking to get my phD in Clinical Psych with a Law emphasis so I can become a psychologist within the law enforcement career. BUT due to certain circumstances while enrolling in uni, I wasn't able to take any psychology undergrad courses along with my sociology degree, so I have very minimal psych background--like maybe 5 classes in total. I have no research experience in psychology, and I'm currently looking at taking a post-bacc program at UC Berkeley. I might have some connects in getting into a lab for research experience, but it's not
