  1. 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!
  2. Hello wonderful people, Was wondering if any school psychology applicants/students/etc. have any advice for a college junior interested in school psych doctoral programs, and if people think I have a decent shot at getting into doctoral programs right out of undergrad. I'm extremely passionate about both special education and school-based mental health, particularly the intersection among the two. I love schools and education, and love the idea of getting to work with teachers and administrators to make school climates better for students' mental health. I would love to work in a middle or high school and get to do a balance of psychoeducational testing as well as individual/group counseling. I'm a psych and women's, gender, & sexuality studies double major at a fairly well-regarded liberal arts school with a 3.92 GPA (3.83 in psych). I took the GRE general test in September and got a 159 on quant, 163 on verbal, and 5.5 on AW, and plan on taking the psych subject test next fall (I know I took it super early but my advisor suggested I spend one summer studying for the general test and one studying for the psych test so it was more manageable). In terms of research experience, I've completed a handful of research projects in undergrad so far, will potentially be an RA next semester while studying abroad (interviewing this week), and plan on completing a senior honors project next year. I'm also looking into summer research internships/RA positions as well. In terms of clinical/applied/non-research experience, I'm a crisis counselor for Crisis Text Line, staff the 24-hour hotline at a local domestic violence shelter, work seasonally/during the summer with individuals with special needs, teach students with special needs at a religious school, and intern with my school's Title IX office. I'm also a member of my school's chapter of Psi Chi, Alpha Lambda Delta (first-year honor society), and National Society of Leadership & Success. I'm looking at both Psy.D and PhD programs. I definitely want a doctorate so that I also have the option of practicing in a hospital/clinic/private practice/etc. and not only a school. I know about the differences between Psy.Ds and PhDs - I am interested in research and would love to do program evaluation type research while practicing in a school, but would not be interested in doing research full-time. I've found some PhD programs that are strongly weighted towards research and have thrown those out the window and am only looking at PhD programs that seem to balance research and practice fairly evenly. And as we all know, PhD programs are generally much more affordable. Sooooo...if anyone has any tips/advice about what types of experiences to get, how to be more competitive, or thoughts on if I can get into doctoral programs straight out of undergrad, please share! Thank you
  3. So I applied to Columbia Teacher's College School Psychology PhD program in November, and I was wondering if competitive applicants are contacted for interviews? I applied in November and have not heard a word yet. I think that the interview process varies per department (not all programs require an interview at TC), so I was wondering if anyone had any experience specifically with the school psychology program. Also, there's a chance that I may have seriously fucked up... I remember submitting a Resume but not a CV (I don't think that Teachers College required a CV, which I found surprising, but I could have possibly overlooked or misunderstood that in the application). Did other people applying to TC submit a CV? anyone remember if it was required? I may have f*cked up, but there's always next year (I only applied to two programs lol) although a gap year or two between grad and undergrad wouldn't be the worst.
  4. Hi all! So I've been reading the threads from the past few years (SO helpful) and decided to start one for this year! I would appreciate any advice from people who have gone through the application process, and would love to hear from people applying for the fall 2017 season as well. Does anyone have any advice on narrowing down options of schools to apply to? I'm looking for a Ed.S. Program that is: 1. NASP accredited 2. Affordable (possibility of funding, assistantship, out of state tuition waiver, etc.) I have some schools in mind mostly based on location and tuition but I don't really know much about many of the programs on the NASP website. Any advice, things you wish you had known, information about programs, etc. would be greatly appreciated! Do you know of any programs that are well-respected but still affordable? I have a 3.96 undergrad GPA, am currently studying for the GRE, and have experience working with both young children with disabilities as well as culturally diverse youth. However, I have no research experience. Will this affect my chances of getting in to a good specialist program?
  5. I am looking at becoming a Licensed Psychologist and completing an APA accredited program. My end goal is to work in the medical field and work/research disability topics (emphasis on diagnosis and assessment of ASD.) When I begin a PhD program I will have completed a Master's in Clinical Psychology and be licensed as a therapist. I am interested in hearing from any other individuals with disabilities that are applying to, currently attending, or formerly attended an APA accredited Psychology program. I feel like there are many considerations and decisions I have to make, and as my disabilities are mainly medically related aspects such as health insurance and schedule are something I have to think about. I have been told that programs cannot discriminate based on disability, but I definitely worry about keeping up with the sequence of courses/practicum etc... and balancing everything. If anyone has suggestions (even if you are attending a program and do not live with disability) they are greatly appreciated! Isn't adulting fun?!
  6. Hi everyone! I decided to create a thread for the peeps applying for school psychology programs for Fall 2019! What schools are you applying to? Are you going for an EdS or PhD program? How did you pick your programs? In general, how is the whole process going for you all? I hope I can get people to add on to this because it would be nice to have people to relate to haha. I am personally applying for PhD programs. My finalized list (so far) includes: Northern Arizona University, University of Memphis, University of Washington, and University of Virginia. I am excited to hear about everyone else!
  7. I saw this type of thread for other majors and I thought I start one here. This in no way is meant to pressure individuals to make decisions but rather help the waitlisters in being able to know if there is hope in getting into the program of choice. I hope this thread will be helpful for everyone who is involved in this hectic process of grad school applications.
  8. Hello everyone, It is midnight and I can not rest until I have some feedback that may shine some light on my chances for getting into a graduate program Fall 2020. I would greatly like to know of others with low or average GPA to share their experience. I will be graduating this May. I hope to raise my GPA with this semesters coursework and gain more experience during my gap year. I reside in California and will most likely be applying to graduate programs in the state. Here are my current specs. Overall GPA: 3.42 GPA in last 2 years: 3.68 Psyc GPA: 3.48 2 years working as a Behavior Instructor, one of which as a Registered Behavior Technician 1 year of research 1 year as a TA I will also be attending WPA this year where I'll be presenting a poster presentation as a co-author for a study on impostor phenomena as well as a presentation with Philip Zimbardo on his Heroic Imagination Project and possible integration to CSU's,. The psychology department chair at my university has asked me to help her present addition research of hers on the impostor phenomena as well. Again, any feedback will help!
  9. Hi, I wanted to know if anyone had their interview for the school psychology program at Queens College. How did it go? What types of questions were asked? Thank you in advance.
  10. Has anyone recieved an email for an interview from a CSU for a masters in school psychology? I applied to csula and I haven't heard back from them yet. I have a gut feeling I will get a rejection email next week and I'd rather know now. When I called and the lady said my file does not say I've been rejected yet, but the deadline is next friday...

  12. I'm currently in the midst of some soul searching as I try to figure out if I'm best suited for a clinical, counseling, or school psych PhD program. Pertaining to those programs, I would love to know as much as possible regarding the differences in research experience, job opportunity, annual salary, program structure, clinical training, acceptance difficulty...anything and everything! I'm very conflicted right now so any personal experience, or knowledge anyone has would be infinitely appreciated!
  13. 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!
  14. Hi Everyone! I noticed that a forum was started specifically for clinical psychology applicants who had heard back from schools regarding interviews. I thought it would be helpful to create one for school psychology programs as well. Even though the results section also has this, we can discuss specifically school psych programs. I applied to University of Utah, University of Virginia, James Madison University (PsyD), and UNC Chapel Hill school psych programs. These programs tend to have later deadlines so I think it's safe to assume that the programs will begin reaching out later rather than sooner? Any thoughts?
  15. I'm currently applying to some School Psychology Ed.S/MS programs and need advice on my statement of purpose. The schools I'm applying to share the same university application which asks for a broad statement of purpose, so all my schools will be reading this same SOP. The problem is I don't have experience working in a research lab so I'm not sure if I still have to address my research interests in my SOP if I don't have any direct experience... I'm writing about my experiences as a teacher and instructional aide (did field work for this through an undergraduate course) instead. Should I still mention some broad research interests related to school psych or should I just focus on what I want to do career wise? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! The prompt instructions are "Since your statement of purpose is sent to all the programs you apply to, keep it general. If you plan to apply to only one program, you should still keep your statement general in case you later apply to additional programs. Write a brief statement of purpose describing reason(s) for pursuing graduate or post baccalaureate study. Include any additional information concerning your preparation that is pertinent to the objective specified"
  16. Hello All, I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm posting this in the right area. I have an upcoming group interview for the M.S.ED in School Psychology at LIU. Does anyone have experience with group interviews for graduate school? What kind of questions are expected? Or is there a previous post with useful information? Thanks in advance!
  17. Hi all, I'm new to the site, but I've been looking on here for a while. I am in hopes of being accepted to a graduate specialist level program in school psychology for Fall 2019. I am applying to MSU (current school), Central Michigan, Ball State, Wayne State, Grand Valley, and the University of Toledo. I plan on staying mostly in-state or in the midwest for school and picked NASP accredited programs. I just took the GRE again on Tuesday in hopes of doing better on my Quant and AW scores. I haven't gotten my AW score back, but I did not do any better on quant than before. I was devastated when I found out, and am worried that I may not be a competitive applicant. Here are my scores from both times. First time: Quant: 144 Verbal: 153 AW: 3.5 Second time: Quant: 142 Verbal: 155 AW: not scored yet I understand that for some master's level programs in psychology that the quant is not heavily looked at. However, everyone I have spoken to (other students, professors) have said something different. I also understand that GRE is not everything in an application. I have a 3.52 GPA with strong letters of recommendation. I also have worked with troubled youth in an advocate position through my undergraduate program and am now currently working in a psychology clinic as an internship. If there is anyone out there in a similar boat, has been in the past, or is a current student in my prospective programs I would love to hear from you!
  18. Hi! So the deadline for deciding programs is the end of this week (AH) and I’m still super torn between Tufts and DU for the EdS degree. I should have posted something earlier but didn’t actually know about this forum until recently. I’m living abroad so wasn’t able to attend either interview day. I have a full ride at DU (got about 8k a year at tufts) and Denver seems like a great place to live but I’m a bit wary of the program’s quality-can anyone weigh in? Or could maybe compare Tufts to DU? Thank you thank you!!

  20. I'm in the process of interviewing for different masters/specialist programs in Massachusetts and Connecticut. I have interviews at William James, Umass Amherst, Southern CT State University, Tufts, and Northeastern. Im still waiting to hear from UConn and UMass Boston. Each program has a different degree they offer (M.A., M.S., and M.Ed) along with different specialist credentials (CAGS, Ed.S and 6th year certificate). I know that for the most part the specialist credentials are the same but vary in name depending on the state, but I'm wondering if the difference in the masters degree is significant and if it effects a students career as a school psychologist. Also, if anyone has been to any of these schools and would like to comment on how they felt about the programs it would be much appreciated! Currently my top choices are Umass Amherst and Northeastern. Some questions I have about the programs are: Is the program more research focused or practical focused? Cohort size? How supportive and available is the faculty towards the students? How heavy was the workload? Do you feel the program prepared you to be a competent school psychologist? Would you recommend the program? And any other comments you'd like to make! Thank you!
  21. Hello, i was waitlisted for Chapmans school psych program. anyone in the same boat as me? Id love to know if youve been taken off the waitlist! As i have not. Has anyone been offered admission and considering not going (please ? Lol)
  22. Hello, I was wondering if anyone is in the specialist degree programs for school psychology at Teachers College, Fordham, or St. Johns, or the PsyD program for school-community psychology at Hofstra? Would you be able to give me some information about the programs? Thank you!!
  23. Hello! I have a few questions about the School Psychology program at University of Hartford and was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their experiences? Thanks!
  24. Has anyone heard back from any of their School Psych Masters programs? I've applied to Appalachian State and also University of Denver.
  25. Hello, I'm interested in becoming a School Psychologist. I plan to apply to a Masters program this fall 2018. Currently finishing my bachelor's. My question is: Is it better to apply to a program that is a Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology (Ed.s) or Masters program in Counseling: School Psychology Credential. I really would like to go to CSUEB because they offer the Masters in Counseling: School Psychology Credential Program with Marriage and Family Therapy Licensure but I'm assuming these programs are different due to one being a Educational Specialist degree and the other being a Masters in counseling. Are there pros and cons to applying to a Masters in Counseling: with School Psychology Credential compared to applying to an Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology? (Ed.s) Whats the difference? Is it possible that employers look only for people who have an Educational Specialist Degree in School Psychology vs people with a Masters in Counseling: School Psychology Credential? Do they offer better pay to those who have an Educational Specialist degree? Thank you.
