tyr456 Posted June 4, 2020 Share Posted June 4, 2020 Hello I'm new to this forum! I'm an upcoming senior graduating in spring, and I somewhat recently decided to apply to PhD, PsyD, and master's programs in clinical psychology for this cycle (entering in Fall 2021). I've looked into some schools, but I'm unsure how I should go about my final year to try and strengthen my application. I'm also debating whether I should take a gap year or enter a master's program in case I do not get into a PsyD or PhD program. My ultimate goal is getting into any APA accredited PsyD school like Nova-Southeastern, but I'm not too confident that will happen. Dual-Major: Psychology (Behavior-Analysis focused) and Nutritional Sciences Cumulative GPA: 3.82 Upper Division: 3.79 Research: 2.5 years RA in a social psychology lab doing tasks like running participants in studies and discussing articles in lab meetings (just quit recently) 1.5 years RA in a Nutritional-sciences lab. 2 research awards to work on my own project and presenting a poster in spring at my school's research symposium upcoming spring. GRE: Taking it soon! Hopefully will turn out well. LOR: 1 from research professor in nutritional sciences lab. 1 from professor in my behavior analysis class, and probably 1 from my research professor in the social psychology lab. Please any constructive criticism! I'm also trying to get licensed as a Certified Nursing Assistant (was pre-health before changing) and debating whether it would be beneficial to get trained and volunteer as a Crisis Line Counselor. Thank you guys for reading! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
