So far I've only gathered my list for doctoral programs since the deadline is usually earlier than EdS deadlines! It's possible that I'll still tweak my list a bit, but this is generally my plan. I plan to apply to ~6 EdS programs, as well.

 

Temple University PhD

Syracuse University PhD

Lehigh University PhD

Pace University PhD

NC State University PhD

UMass Boston PhD

Fordham University PhD

 

If anybody has any information/advice about these programs (funding, faculty, overall atmosphere and quality of the program) I would appreciate it so much!! I'm applying straight from undergrad and I know that statistically I have very small shot at being accepted to any of these... but I still want to try my best. I'm taking the GRE in a week and not confident about how well it will go since I've had such a busy semester and little time to prepare. Otherwise, I think I have a competitive GPA. I have decent research experience, but I know many other applicants are applying after already having their Master's and/or work experience after college. If I don't get into the programs, I'll still be happy to take at least one gap year to gain more experience and hopefully become more competitive :)

You should look into specialist programs if you are worried, some schools offer acceptance into a specialist degree program and then a year before the program is complete you can apply to their PhD program and you have a greater chance of acceptance. Most specialist programs aren't as competitive because they have larger cohorts (typically 4-6 students for PhDs and up to 24 for specialist, i.e. M.Ed., Ed.S, CAGS

I just submitted all my applications for School Psych PhD programs. Does anyone have an idea when we should expect to hear back about interviews? Do we know we are rejected or just don't hear back? I applied to 10 programs and am senior right now. I am hoping to get into a program straight after school, but can take a gap year and reapply.

Many of the December 1st application deadline schools will start to reach out to applicants to inform if they have received an interview during the middle of December and early portion of January. Interviews typically take place around a month after. Unfortunately, some schools funding situations make the process for acceptance/rejecting complicated and it may stretch out hearing back until much after an interview occurs. All prospective students have until April 15th to decide on accepting or rejecting offers, so you should, in theory get an acceptance/rejection email or letter a couple of weeks before that at the absolute latest. I hope this helps!
