  1. Hey guys!! Just wanted to pop on here and ask if anyone has interviewed with Spalding University for their Clinical Psychology PsyD program yet? And if so, would anyone be willing to talk about how the experience went for them? I have applied to all Masters programs, and this is the only doctorate program that I applied to, so I would love to know how it is going to differ from interviews for MA programs. Feel free to PM me or just respond to my post. Thanks!
  2. 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!
  3. I'm wondering just how competitive is Rutgers PsyD program? And admitted or current students here on the forum that can shed some light on the process please? It's definitely my dream school to enter but I want to strategize myself effectively and plan ahead. Would love any opinions, thanks!
  4. A poll to assess where in the interview notification process Pacific University currently stands.
  5. Hello All -A little about me, I am currently in the process of interviewing at Midwestern and just finished an interview at Adler. I am pursuing a Psy.D and leaning towards a neuropsychology emphasis to prepare me to work with a wide array of mental-diagnoses and patients that span from adolescents to adults. I am very open to what clinical setting to work in but at some point in my career I would like to work with the prison population. -I am looking for someone who attends either of these schools or has proficient knowledge in them to help me weigh out some pros and cons. Midwestern in particular has been hard to find specific faculty information about and locating previous or current students has been hard as well. So far I enjoy the location of Midwestern more than Adler and the cost may be slightly less. However, Adler seem to be very reputable and is more well-known which makes me more comfortable committing 5 years of my life to. Anything information that people could add would be extremely helpful and I would greatly appreciate any input!!!
  6. Hi everyone, I'm currently in undergrad, so this is my first time applying to grad school and the process is a bit overwhelming. I was wondering if anyone knew of Clinical Psychology PsyD programs that are well or fully funded? Also, besides faculty/mentor match, what other important factors should I consider when choosing schools to apply. At the moment, I'm choosing based on the cost of living in the area and faculty match. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone applying!
  7. I'm planning to apply to a few clinical programs next year to begin in Fall 2022. I'm interested in the MSc at Acadia, PsyD at UPEI, and PsyD at Memorial. I'm hoping someone can provide me with some insight into the importance of undergrad stats grades for these applications. In my intro stats course I got an A+, but only got a B in advanced stats. I've been told by some that a B is not good enough, while others say it is perfectly fine. Should I be concerned about this grade assuming everything else in my application is good? Thanks in advance!
  8. I didn't get any acceptances last year, from the 3 PsyDs and 5 PhDs I applied to. I'm reapplying this year, to PsyD only. For the schools that I'm applying to for the second time, I don't want all 3 of my LORs to be the same as last year. The only new person who can write me one is the person for whom I nanny. I'm applying for child psych specializations and want to be a clinical child psychologist, so this isn't too far from the field, but it's not clinical work at all. The mom has a graduate degree and writes grant applications for a living, so she'll be able to write a good LOR for me. The problem is, what should she include? She doesn't know anything about my academics (I graduated undergrad in 2018). All she knows is my personality, work ethic, morals, etc. My other two LORs will be from the faculty advisor from the mental health org I worked with for 4 years in undergrad, and my clinical manager from when I was a Registered Behavior Technician with kids who have ASD and related disorders.
  9. 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. for Clinical Psychology. However, am I limiting myself? I know a lot of people do Ph.D. and don't end up going into research. However, am I competitive enough for Ph.D. programs? Further, is taking a gap year absolutely necessary? I really wouldn't want to work as a research coordinator. Many people have advised me to take a year or two to gain more clinical work, thereby having a stronger application. Is there any shot of me getting into Psy.D. or Ph.D. right from undergrad? Honestly, my plan right now is to apply to some Psy.D. programs (only a few/reach schools), kind of hoping for a miracle. Then, I will take a year off when that miracle doesn't happen and get more clinical work and apply again. Does this sound good? Am I limiting myself? Do I have no shot? If I have no shot, please tell me. It's really hard to understand where I fit in compared to other applicants. GPA 3.91/4 Taking my GREs this summer. Probably a little lower on math. 1 year as a research assistant in psychometric lab. Leader/trainer for school's crisis/listening hotline (3 years) This summer I had an amazing internship at the Child Mind Institute, but it was delayed until next year. For the summer, I have taken up remote positions. Remote Summer RA at Montclair State (College COVID study) Remote Summer RA at Rutgers (Social-Emotional learning/school intervention lab) Remote Summer RA at Rowan (anxiety + depression research) Writing a psychology thesis next year about college admissions (def psychology based, but not really THAT clinical) School extracurriculars: multiple leadership positions in sorority, Psi Chi secretary Past jobs: Summer camp counselor for 3 years, summer internship at school in education technology.
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. 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 it would be extremely appreciated! Also, I have some worries about going into a program that practices psychoanalysis as one of their major schools of thought. Any thoughts on this??
  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. 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. Situation: Ideally, I would like to complete a master's or doctoral program part-time (nights/weekend/etc., or distance) while maintaining full-time employment/income. I have lived in DC for 7 years and would like to remain here for the entirety of my program. I already hold a Master of Public Health from Emory University (Policy Concentration) and a Bachelor of Arts from Penn State University (English/Writing and Health Policy) I have been told by several therapist friends (ranging from MSWs to PhDs and MDs) to pursue a (second) master's degree as that is all that is needed to practice as a therapist. They have all emphasized that you can earn a significant amount in private practice, especially in a market like D.C. I would qualify as a non-traditional student in that my professional and academic background are outside of social work, psychology, etc. I have worked in health policy (4 years total, including some mental health policy work and nonprofit board service) as well as entrepreneurship (founded and ran a startup for 3 years). Questions: Are there any venerable part-time and/or online PsyD or PhD programs that I should consider? If I could complete a doctoral program in a reasonable timeframe (likely a PsyD given my primary focus on practice), that might be preferable to a master's programs. The challenge I've seen is that most of the programs I've researched require full-time students (i.e. no evenings or weekend classes). Among the various MSW/MA/MS programs in clinical social work, mental health counseling, etc., do you have any recommendation if my end goal is clinical psychotherapy? Given my above objective and situation, do you have any other thoughts about vetting programs for fit (i.e. things to look for as I research programs)? Is there any possibility that I could acquire merit-based aid for master's programs like these or a part-time PsyD? Given my location in DC, are there any specific programs/departments you would recommend? Again, many thanks for any help you can provide!
  16. 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
  17. 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!
  18. 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)
  19. 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!
  20. 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!
  21. 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!
  22. 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!
  23. 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?
  24. 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!
  25. 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!
