Hi! Wanted to start a broad forum for psychology PhD apps. I applied to programs with a wide variety of titles (went based on faculty interests rather than PhD title), and I'd love to start a freak-out thread for people of all research areas ;)

Presentations: several podium and poster presentations at both undergrad and international/professional conferences

Awards/honors: honors thesis, graduated summa cum laude, named one of 20 outstanding graduates in liberal arts in 2020, scholarship funding thesis research

LoRs: one from current PI (clinical neuro); one from undergrad PI (neuro); one from my undergrad thesis advisor (human development/social psy)

Research interests: health disparities, social neuroscience, health psychology


Applying to:
