PsyD or balanced PhD in Clinical Psych?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! This is my first round of application and I was lucky enough to receive 2 interview offers from Indiana State U and Bowling Green State U. It might be too early to ask for advice now since I am nowhere near getting an offer yet. But I figured I'll ask for more opinions to have a better idea of how people think about these 2 programs and what should I expect from them! 

I know the outcome and other data tells a lot about the program. The internship placement rate for Indstate is 100% for the past 6 years and the all time licensure rate is 97% (69/71). BGSU on the other hand, has a internship placement rate of 100% for the past 3 years and their licensure rate is 90% (60/67). Both programs are funded, and Indstate has a average completion time of 5.5 yrs Vs. BGSU's 6.3 yrs.

BGSU: https://www.bgsu.edu/content/dam/BGSU/college-of-arts-and-sciences/psychology/documents/graduateprogram/DisclosureDataAPA.pdf

PsyD programs are generally being criticized for having inferior research training but I have spoken to a few indstate's graduates and they all have a lot of good things to say about the research opportunities offered by the program. One of them even finished the program with 7 publications.

Personally my goal would be practicing while staying active in conducting research and I feel like both programs would prepare me well for that. Does anyone happened to graduate from either one of those schools and feeling like giving some advice? Thank you so much!

Sorry for grammar, English wasn't my first language!
