PsychBear92 Posted February 1, 2021 Share Posted February 1, 2021 I am most interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, but there are a few POIs who match my research interests in Quantitative Psych. The next time I apply, I am considering whether to add apps for a few quant programs to the list. I have a few questions about these programs, in relation to how it compares to Clinical, with the understanding that a lot this depends on my experience, faculty, program, etc. 1. We all know Clinical is hypercompetitive, but how much easier would it be to enroll in a quant program? 2. Are these programs typically funded? 3. This one is subjective, but how "impressive" would it be to a PI that I use SEM in my honors thesis? How about taking a near-graduate-level stats class where we learned multilevel modeling, factorial analysis, and some other higher-level stuff in R? I guess I'm trying to gauge my chances for admission and the potential for taking on excessive debt. Feel free to speak about other significant differences between these two programs. I spent the past couple years researching Clinical programs, so I know nothing about Quantitative programs. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
