    Best Psyd Schools

    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!

    PsyD competition

    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!
  3. 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 the communications field (for ex., editor at my school's primary media outlet and a corporate communications internship this summer). But after different work experiences and lots of inner debate, I've decided that a degree in counseling psychology would be the most fulfilling career path for me. I wish I could have somehow come to this conclusion sooner, but I'm hoping my choice to have psychology as a second major left me with a few options. I've considered applying to either master's programs or PsyD programs, and I have also considered applying to programs abroad (I spent this past semester in the UK and would apply there). For now, I'm taking steps to prepare for the GRE, but I'm hoping to get some insight/suggestions (possibly from someone who's been in a similar position before where they weren't always sure they wanted to go to graduate school and might not have prepared the same as other psychology students). A potential path I've considered is getting research experience during the summer of 2019 and applying for graduate counseling certificate programs in the UK for the 2019/20 academic year, before applying to a master's or doctorate program. Any insight would help -- thanks!
  4. 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), India : 3.21 - Masters of Science in Psychology ( with Clinical Specialisation), India : 3.50 - Masters of Professional Psychology, Australia : 3.80 ( Provisionally licensed therapist as per the Australian guidelines). I have two unpublished academic dissertations : (1) The Phenomenon of Suicidal Ideation in Individuals Who Have Attempted Suicide Before (2) A Study on the Risk Factors Among Individuals Exposed to Childhood Bullying and Suicidal Ideation. I am currently in the process of formatting and publishing my second dissertation. My GRE score is 302 ( Verbal - 153 , Quant - 149, AWA - 3.5) on second attempt. I attempted the GRE a second time with a month's difference, after I had a horrible anxiety attack because I had interviews that suddenly rocked up on the same day as my GRE. On my first attempt I scored horribly but got a 5 on AWA. I have over a year's worth of clinical work experience and multiple short term internship experiences. Given my performance academically and my diverse experience, I am really hoping to apply for APA accredited PsyD ( predominantly) programs offered by first tier universities in USA. I am thinking: Berkley, Rutger's, Baylor's, Stanford consortium program, etc. I will also be applying to regional and second tier universities with good rankings to maximise intake & minimise disappointments balance the process out. I am taking the year off to apply I am absolutely desperate to make it into a program by 2019. I have 4 questions (one very big confusing question broken into 4 confusing parts ). 1) I understand that, GRE is not everything and it depends on the holistic picture one presents through their applications. But having seen the outcome and admissions data across the fancy-schmancy universities, the GRE scores normally average to about 318 ( minimum). Should I retake the GRE a third time after putting in 3-4 months of diligent effort? 2) Orrr should I just focus on smashing my SoP's , LOR's and getting published ? 3) What are my chances of being able to make it into a well ranked university ? 4) I can do a decent job with writing, sometimes I get carried away or mess up my tenses. Can I get enough help here with editting my SoP or should I sign up for alternative services ? 5) What else should I be focussing on ? Thank you for taking the time out to go through this. I'd love to hear what you guys think
  5. 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!
  6. 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 the need to understand the ins and outs of their clinical requirements, etc. before accepting. Every other program has their handbook accessible via their website for the general public, and I've been admitted, with a grant, and still can't access it. "Proprietary" and "for current students only." I've never heard of such a thing from a university-housed, APA accredited doctoral program. Happy to disclose the school and program if anyone has any advice and/or experience with this. Thank you!!! (Note: I've tried to get it from the current student, the program administrator, even emailed the previously-helpful head of the program [not heard back from him]. My only other thought is to call him and ask directly. Somewhat afraid of alienating people, however.)

    "Reputation" of PsyD Program

    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?

    ABA vs. MA/PsyD Psychotherapy insights?

    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 changing field right now, and supposed to pay better than an MFT/MSW for example. I am extremely conflict avoidant, and don't enjoy crisis situations, although I have become more or less accustomed to them, working with kids with autism and at a group home with troubled youth. While I understand all jobs have ups and downs, to be blunt, I want an "easy" job. I like the job of the LPC I see at the daycare who walks around and establishes rapport with kids, and counsels them on as needed basis. She does not do crisis intervention, or discipline them in anyway. I also LOVE the idea of working as a therapist and doing play therapy with kids, who come to my office, so I don't have to make house calls (and deal with the sometimes unstable home environment). The downside of that is that I won't know if the job of a therapist is really for me until I have the actual degree. The therapists that I've interviewed or have seen sometimes seem really burnt out. I don't want an MFT because the couples fighting can get pretty intense. I want to get an MA in Mental Health, but worried about state-to-state licensure, since I do not know where I will live yet (I currently live in Hawaii, but my husband is applying to jobs out of state, so we're not planning to stay here forever). I have a love-hate relationship with the ABA field (applied behavior analysis) because it is akin to animal training, and while effective, I feel it lacks emphasis on empathy and making a connection with the child (sort of what Dr. Laura Markham's blog ahaparenting.com talks about), but I feel it would be unethical for me to suggest this to clients, because it's not really ABA. To me ABA seems that it's lacking depth and is too robotic with it's reinforcement principles and constricted with its application in autism (supposedly it has other applications, but it's really rare to find a job outside of the autism diagnosis). I also don't like the possibility of injury - kids have hit, bit, spat, and swore at me, they may be teenagers and bigger than me - I am a 5'2 female with history of domestic violence, so this scares me. I can't tell you how many times I've come home crying because of these aggressive behaviors I've had to deal with, and I'd blame myself, there's little support within the profession, and it's just a very difficult job. I've had a PsyD therapist tell me my job is so much harder than hers. What I love about ABA is the one-on-one relationship I get to build with my client. I also love working with kids, especially younger ones, making that connection with them, being their coach, seeing them grow and overcome challenges with my help is SO rewarding. I'm also good at this job, I feel like I have a knack for it (I've had supervisors tell me this), and it is an in-demand field. SO I've been sitting on this dilemma for a year or two now, and feel a lot of pressure to make a decision already, I am 29 years old, and desperately wanting to to be financially independent and get on with my life with a permanent job, that I only see for myself after grad school. I know this was long, sorry about that. Really appreciate any help you may have, and feel free to ask questions.

    Nova PsyD Program

    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.

    Straight Outta B.A.... to PhD?!?

    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 solid. Regardless, my question is: should I go get my Master's first--and put myself in further debt--and add two years to my already 4-6 years of schooling for my phD? OR Find some research experience, take this post-bacc program at Berkley &apply for my phD for fall 2020? ANY TIPS ADVICE ETC will be so beneficial. Even if its the harsh truth! I will love to hear stories about what others did, especially if it was someone in a non-psychology background to see what challenges they've faced etc. All is welcome though! sidenote: I might have to take the post-bacc program regardless of which path I take. Thanks.
  11. Hello! I thought I would start a new forum for PSYD interview invites. I have followed the other pages and tried to pick through to find the PsyD posts, so I figured this may be easier! If you could please post the following information: School: Date of Interview notice: How the notification was sent (email, check portal, phone, etc.): Interview dates: Concentration: I know some PsyD programs have concentrations so if you would like, it would be great to also post your concentration! As of now I know the following schools have sent out initial invites: Baylor University Pepperdine University University of Indianapolis William James College Widener University Indiana University of PA Adler University (Chicago) Hopefully this helps!

    Which job is better?

    I am preparing to change my professional career of working with families and youth in community and recreation based programs to going back to school and doing a psyd in counseling psychology or a masters in mft. Since I need to prepare my application this year (online psyc. courses, gre prep, clinical work etc) I am at a crossroads. I have two jobs I can take: one is working as a behavior specialist at a children’s mental health facility, the other an aide for students with developmental disabilities. The first job offers a behavior tech certification and it is one on one with the student in a public or community setting. The second job is at a facility with a team, where I work with sub acute clients with their daily routine, do evaluations, intervention/de escalation,have weekly meetings/training opportunities, etc. The clients have more severe conditions than the aide job, which seems to be a more supporting/teaching role. I cant figure out if these jobs would be considered “clinical experience”, which psyd or masters programs would accept. I also can’t figure out which would be a better experience for me in terms of learning and exposure to different mental health conditions. Any advice would be great!

    Preparing for PsyD Interview

    Hi! This application season, I applied for both PsyD and PhD Clinical Psychology Programs. I have quite a bit of experience prepping for PhD interviews, particularly with a specific POI. Because I did not apply to a specific lab for the PsyD program, I'm feeling a bit at a loss for how to prepare for my interview. Rather than studying up on specific research, should I be looking at the program more broadly? Do I need in depth knowledge of each professor's research, etc? All advice is welcome!
  14. I am in need of some advice regarding my unique (as far as I can tell) situation. Basically, I am in the middle of a PhD program in Molecular and Cellular Biology, but would like to switch to Clinical Psychology. I have done some reading on Psy.D and PhD programs in Clinical Psych, and feel I would be much better suited for this field rather than my current one. Without getting too deep into personal matters, I essentially no longer find any joy in my current field of work, and I believe I would find much more meaning and fulfillment as a clinical psychologist or licensed therapist. I doubled majored in MCB and Psychology in undergrad (Top 40 school), and the PhD program I am currently in is consistently ranked #1 or #2 for MCB. I have done molecular bio research more or less full-time since my senior year of undergrad, but have ZERO experience in clinical psych. I spent a semester in undergrad working as a research assistant in a Cognitive Psych lab though, and did win a departmental award for my research there. Still, this feels very minor compared to what I imagine other applicants have in terms of research experience. I have tried to be as honest with myself as I can, and I do not believe this is just a case of getting cold feet as many people experience during their PhD years. My dream has been to get a PhD for a long time, and I do not want to give up on this. I just do not want it to be in a field where I see no future for myself. The reality is, I absolutely do not want to keep doing benchwork science in academia OR in biotech, and I do not want to settle for an alternative career (consulting, teaching) that I am not truly passionate about. For me, the bottom line is I want to help people with mental illnesses live better lives, whether that is through clinical research or as a licensed therapist. Mainly I am interested in hearing about what a typical to exceptional applicant to Clinical Psych doctorate programs looks like (GRE, research experience, etc.). I would also like to get a feel for what programs I might expect to get into (if any...) if I were to apply literally right now without doing anything else to add to my CV. What were your top choice schools? What do you think I would need to do in order to get into those programs? Relevant stats: Education/GPA: Currently a Molecular biology PhD candidate at top ranked university, 3.8 GPA. (Technically I would have a masters if I were to drop out of my program now as I have already passed my qualifying exam). Bachelors in MCB and Psychology, 3.7 GPA overall (Psychology GPA is higher) GRE: 170 V / 158 Q Research experience: 7 years of molecular bio, 1 semester of cognitive psych research. Currently in a neurobiology lab (albeit with no particular focus on mental disorders), although I rotated through one lab where my project dealt with genes involved in schizophrenia, and another lab where my project dealt with neurological correlates of depression. Teaching experience: 1 semester teaching a general biology course to ~100 students. Have also volunteered at elementary and middle schools as a science outreach instructor, as well as a science summer camp one year. Thank you in advance for your input!!

    Space Psychology?

    This is a totally out of reach post (lol) but anyone here interested in space psychology? I.e. how do, or would, astronauts live in space and what will happen to their minds psychologically on a long term space mission? Would love to connect with like minded folks with similar interests!

    Psyd Application Advice

    Hi all, I am interested in pursuing a doctorate in Psychology and after doing a lot of research on psychology programs, the Psyd is definitely the best fit for my educational and career goals. I am hoping to compile a competitive application for the Fall of 2019 and I am looking for some advice & feedback. Given that some Psyd programs are quite costly, I am targeting more competitive programs that offer at least some funding. As background: I graduated in 2005 with a bachelors in Psychology- not a stellar GPA, 3.3. I then completed a Masters in Social Work in 2007, with a GPA, 4.0. I worked in a research lab during both years of my MSW program doing qualitative interviews, participant outreach and some data entry but have no other real research experience, presentations, or publications. I worked in the field of social work for 6 years after graduating with my MSW and then took 4 years off (by Fall 2019, it will be 6 years) to stay at home with my small children. I have a lot of clinical/hands on experience to highlight in my application from my work experience. I am starting to study for the GRE and am hopeful that with the ample amount of time I have to study for it, I will be able to score well. Advice/Questions: As I have been out of the workforce for the last several years and out of school for much longer than that, my references are quite stale at this point. I especially hesitate to contact previous professors as it has been so long. I am considering taking an undergraduate psychology course at a local university to get an updated academic reference. Any out there have experience in getting some updated references/recommendation letters, particularly academic references, years after graduation? Any advice for me? If I were to take an undergraduate psych class, any recommendations on what would be particularly helpful to have refreshed for a doctoral program (ie. statistics vs. a intro psych class vs. a random class of interest)? Secondly, I am considering volunteering in a psych lab at a local university (if this is possible to do) to obtain more research experience and for another updated recommendation letter. Any advice on what types of research tasks/experience would be most useful? Any other general advice you might have for me in compiling a competitive application- given a lower undergrad GPA and a period of being out of the workforce? And any recommendations on Psyd programs that offer funding? Also, are there any Facebook groups for individuals going through the process of applying to doctoral programs in Psychology? Thanks so much in advance! Christy
  17. Hello, I have scheduled interviews in January and February at numerous Clinical Psychology PsyD programs around the country (Baylor, JFKU, Marshall, IUP, etc). My question is whether or not I should be clean shaven for the interviews. I have a full and well manicured beard. It is always well kept, trimmed, and groomed and I have always received many compliments on my beard. I have gotten mixed reviews when asking professors and professionals about what to do with my facial hair situation. Some say to play it safe and shave it off and some say that it would be something that could potentially make me more memorable. Any thoughts and opinions would be appreciated!

    M.A vs. PsyD

    Hey all, I'm basically looking for input and advice on my current situation: I was accepted to The Wright Institute's PsyD program and I'm really excited about it. I know the most about their program as compared to other schools I applied to and love their practicum opportunities and the vibe of the school. I also like that I'd be getting a doctoral degree. However, I've been living in the bay area for a while and a big part of me really wants to get the heck out of here. I've generally been really unhappy in this location and feel ready for change. I was rejected from Yeshiva University's PsyD program in New York, but just got accepted to their M.A program in Mental Health Counseling and I have to say it's tempting for a few reasons - 1) It's a university, not professional institute, 2) the program is a bit shorter and I believe a bit more affordable, and 3) the location!!! All the same, I wouldn't want to regret not going for the PsyD for kind of shallow reasons. What do you all think? Any insight especially on what an M.A in New York can do for you vs. a PsyD from anywhere...not as familiar with the job market in NYC. Thanks!

    Fall 2017 Applications

    Hi All, I know its super early but I figured starting a discussion on the next Psychology PhD cycle during Fall 2016. I will start applying to the programs during late August 2016. I'm really nervous but I rather work hard to enhance my overall CV and application.- I am currently working on a lot of research and I have 2 poster conferences coming up within a month. I will be doing my Masters thesis during the Fall. I graduated with a overall 3.0 (undergrad) - last two semesters were 3.7. I have internship experience working as a case manager for abused women. I worked with kids with autism and adhd. I have research experience from undergrad where i was third author and i mainly did data collection/entry. This summer I will do more research and be a counselor for a trauma center. My areas of interest are adolescence psychopathology and crime, drugs, etc. I'd love to study forensic psychology though because I also would like to study domestic violence amongst across cultures. I'm applying to Fairleigh dickinson, LIU POST/Brooklyn (both), Adelphi, John Jay, Seton Hall, St. Johns, Rutgers, Yeshiva & Hofstra. Its a long list also I'm taking the GRE in 2 months, My goal is to get a 155Q 160V- 5A. Any other tips besides looking for fit? What are my overall chances
  20. Hi everyone, I am new to this whole blog and website and just really need some solid advice. I am applying to Nova Southeastern University for the Psy.D. program with a few other Master's as a back-up. I am pretty much discouraged to even finish my application at this point because I took the GRE (for the 3rd time) and got a combined score of 293. (Verbal-150, Quant: 143, AW: 4.0) I know this is a low score and is not competitive enough. I was hoping some other aspects of my application would come in and save me from the rejection pile. They have a strong "preference" for a GRE score of 297 or above. A little info on myself: -3.72 GPA -Over 3 years of research experience. Started as an Undergraduate RA, was hired as the assessment specialist for my lab and am now the research coordinator for the new grant. -I was a counselor for an intensive 8-week intervention program for children who were obese and at risk for comorbid disorders such as depression, anxiety etc. This totaled out to over 340 hours of clinical work. -3 very strong letters of recommendation I appreciate honesty and any advice you have to offer. I am retaking the GRE in December one last time, but I fear there won't be a huge change in my score.

    GRE time managing

    Hello everyone! My GRE test is May 20th. I picked up the ETS GRE book of their website and I purchased an analytical writing online tool. How should I go about studying? I have a full time job so I wanted to know exactly how many hours a week should I be putting in? I want to organize myself and build a structured schedule to follow.
  22. Hey all, Is anyone else who applied to Yeshiva University's PsyD having an issue where the PSYCAS application still has your application marked as incomplete? For me, everything is complete but it says they are still waiting on my official undergrad transcript. However, I sent my transcript a while ago and the admissions office, when I called, even confirmed that they had it but said it wouldn't update on the psycas application website right away. It's been over a month now though, and since other people have received interview requests I'm worried something was processed incorrectly. So I'm wondering if this is normal and also happening to those of you who received an interview or admission? Thank you!

    PsyD Thread

    Wondering if anyone else here applied to PsyD programs? If so, let's post where we applied and any updates! School: The Wright Institute Program: PsyD Status: Received invitation for interview last week. I have my interview on Saturday. School: Yeshiva University Program: PsyD Status: Submitted my application but haven't heard anything. Nervous since they said they would extend interview invites in January. School: Trinity College Dublin Program: Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Status: Still figuring out if I am going to apply. Nervous about the work visa issue so not sure if it's worth applying. Any thoughts?
  24. 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!

    emailing POI for PsyD

    I'm applying for the first time this application cycle for Fall 2017 Clinical Psychology programs PhD and PsyD. I know the two programs are different and I'm more interested in the practitioner side although, I have some research experience and I am interested in doing more. Do you need to email POI's for a PsyD the way that you need to for PhD in Psychology? I've heard that PsyD programs match applicants more to their program than a specific faculty member. Any suggestions or experience would be helpful! Thanks!
