Fall2018 PhD Psychology (NONE-PSYCH Undergrad Applicants)

Just want to start a topic for those none-psych undergrads who are applying for psych grad schools for Fall2018. Thought that we can share our backgrounds and admission updates so far.

I am an international student from China. Did my B.A. in China, and majored in English. Completed my M.S. in Education at Cal State. Enrolled in a Post-Bac Psych program, and loved it so far. I am doing RA at a social psych lab in the UC system, for about half year now. I applied to 13 schools this season (a0r1). 

It is a tough journey to get in to grad school, especially for those who are switching their fields.......

My undergraduate major was in business administration and I'm applying to social psychology too, in addition to marketing (CB). I took some courses in social psychology as an undergraduate and I've recently finished a research master's in a business school, but followed a behavioral sciences research track (which gave me a good background in social psych research). I am an international applicant from Brazil.

During my application, I felt that some departments are very welcoming of non-psych major applicants, while others are the complete opposite. Did you have this feeling too?

Hey, yeah. Although All the schools I applied to do not require an psych undergrad degree, but I do feel those with psych undergrad degrees are the ones who got admited the most. It is understandable,  but just makes this for people like us who is switching even harder :wacko: And when I was applying for volunteering RA at some psych labs, only 3/15 responded and only got in 1. :ph34r:
