A few weeks ago, I was rejected from all the master programs I applied too, for the second year in a row. For some context, I graduated in August and have already applied in 2 application cycles for a masters in clinical psychology, and got rejected from all schools I applied too. I have a competitive GPA (3.5 and above), research experience in the field, volunteer experience, and in my opinion strong letters of recommendation. When I was rejected from my schools a year ago, I asked for feedback from the programs and all I got was a generic "we can only admit so many students per term and had to reject a X amount of highly qualified applicants". Even though I was heart broken, I still reapplied too many of the same schools and even some new ones, and was rejected from all of them again. Once again, I asked for feedback on how to make my application stronger from the programs and got the same answer. I really want to go to graduate school, but I feel like I'm going around in circles because I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm not getting anything specific when it comes to feedback so I don't know if I'm repeating past mistakes. As many applicants probably feel, I believe I am a strong candidate, but I am continually missing the mark. How do you improve your application when you have no idea what you're doing wrong? Thanks in advanced to anyone who responds! :)
I've been invited to a few interviews and excited to get them underway! But first hoping y'all can help clarify a few things... 1. How long should I expect the interview to last? They're all during the week, mostly in the evening time since I work full time. 2. I'm also wondering which questions to expect? I'm already prepared for the "Why this program" and "What are your research interests" questions 3. How long after an interview can you expect an answers? 4. What are some questions you asked? I know each program is different, but some insight from those who have already started to interview would be really helpful!
