Hi everyone! I am new to this site, so I apologize if someone has already started this thread and I overlooked it, but I wanted to get a thread started for those of us who are currently applying to school psych programs. I hope the application process is going smoothly for everyone and I look forward to hearing about the programs you are interested in/any tips you might have.

 

Here are the programs I am applying to:

- University of Colorado Denver (PsyD)

- University of Northern Colorado (EdS)

- Lewis & Clark (EdS)

- Seattle University (EdS)

I got accepted to my first program!!!! I have a few more interviews coming up but I’m SO excited. Such a weight off of my shoulders to know that no matter what happens, I’m going to be a school psycho

I finally was able to accept an offer! I'll be attending Indiana University! I found out yesterday afternoon that I was awarded an Adolescent Mental Health Fellowship from the Department of Couns

Hello! I'm also brand new to the site. :) Here are the school psych programs I'm currently planning to apply to, all EdS: 

University of Minnesota 

UW Eau Claire 

UW River Falls 

UW Stout 

U of Northern Colorado 

But this is not a concrete list yet! Also, does anyone know anything about the admissions stats for UNCO? Just to be safe, I want to add a couple schools with higher admissions rates to my list since U of M and all the UWs I listed seem to be fairly competitive based on their stats on NASP. For UNCO stats, NASP says they did not accept any people for the EdS or PhD program for the 2019 to 2020 cycle? So I am very confused haha

The application process has been a bit rough when writing my statements and addressing critical issues because I've always had difficulty writing about my thoughts professionally... I'm getting there though! I am applying to:

University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, UW Madison, University of Washington, San Diego State University, University of Arizona, University of Central Florida, George Mason University, New Mexico State University, and UNLV.

Missing data is not uncommon on NASP's program information page. Though they didn't report how many students were accepted (the students they gave offers to), you know 13 first-year students accepted their offer and chose to attend. The odds are still better than the other schools you're applying to.

Hi everyone!

I am applying to doctoral school psychology programs!

I am applying to much more than you might typically see as I am looking to move for graduate school with my fiancé who is applying to MSW programs. He has a gpa just above the cutoff and only some experience related to the field due to covid related setbacks. Trying to make sure we have the best chances of getting into programs in the same area, but either way it'll work out.  

While I have some favorites, I am applying to these schools currently! Order isn't by favorite. I'd love to connect with other PhD applicants applying to these schools as well! 

 

University of Cincinnati (PhD)

Ohio State (PhD)

Kent State (PhD)

Indiana University - Bloomington (PhD)

University of Wisconsin - Madison (PhD)

University of Maryland - College Park (PhD)

SUNY at Buffalo (PhD)

University of Massachusetts - Amherst (PhD)

University of Massachusetts - Boston (PhD)

 

Good luck to everyone!

Hi! I also applied to UW-Madison. 

I heard back from my POI on Friday inviting me to interview in January (She has my phone number from a previous phone call) 

She mentioned that the formal invites will come out this week so hopefully you will hear back soon too!

WOW omg okay now I'm really nervous😂 Do you think they'll email rejections too or do they just not email you if you didn't get an interview?

Just tried to check my application page and it won't let me log in - keeps saying "an unknown error occurred" and I tried on different devices. Is that happening to anyone else? Could it mean they're updating the pages with results?!

I’m not sure! I haven’t got the official email. It could just be that she called me beforehand since I already had contact with her. 
 

My portal doesn’t say anything yet. Just that my application is under review

Hey guys!
I'm going to be honest I'm only applying to University of Minnesota because I plan to live there regardless... but I still am really really wanting to get in. 

Has anyone hear anything so far? I know interview day is early January so I'm thinking invitations should be sent soon and each day I don't hear I get more nervous! When I emailed the faculty member I want to work with she said that they had a "record number of applicants" this year. So I'm a bit nervous.

Anyone else? Anyone hear anything?
