Social Psychology Fall 2012 Applicants

Recommended Posts

Anyone interested in HCI and know good schools to apply to? Stanford used to do it, but I don't see anyone researching it right now which is messed up - seems like everything is running research out the Eastern schools in interdisciplinary programs (MIT, Harvard, Dartmouth). Really want to stay on the West Coast. Also interested in anthropomorphism and morality.

Any ideas are much appreciated!

Also interested in anthropomorphism and morality.

Dan Wegner, Kurt Gray, Nick Epley, Adam Waytz, and John Cacioppo are some of the biggest names in those areas right now (not necessarily in that order). Or Thalia Wheatley if you like more of a social neuroscience flavour. You're going to have lots of competition applying to those people.

So exciting! I've just submitted Arizona State, U Oregon, WUSTL, U Iowa, and Duke. I'm finished with Cornell, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, UNC-Chapel Hill, and UVA but have yet to actually press the 'submit and pay' button.

Has anyone taken the time to total up application costs? Taking into account app fees, GRE score reports, transcripts, postage (for the few schools still using snail mail...I had two) I'm at $1,331.77. :blink:

If anyone has any questions about UNC-Chapel Hill I'd be glad to answer them!

And those are some expensive fees. $1300+ for 11 schools? I applied to 11 programs last year, and think I was right around the $1000 mark taking into account everything you mentioned. Some schools were pretty bad in terms of application fee (I think Cornell was like $125), but a lot of the public schools I applied to were like $50-$60.

Also, some Psych programs don't pay for your flight out, and some only cover a portion/fixed amount of the flight, so take that into account.

@Behavioral--whew! I'm glad Cornell backed off to $95, then! Mine actually could have been more--Iowa granted me a free application and three of my GRE reports ($23 each) were sent for free while taking the GRE. Three schools also didn't require official transcripts ($9.25 each). It could have been worse...but it hurts my wallet enough as it is. ):

I'm applying to Dr. Srivastava and/or Dr. Hodges at UO.

I had no idea the whole flight wasn't paid for! Oh dear...that's going to hurt just as badly.

Stanford's application fee was $125 for Marketing, too, but I didn't apply since I missed the deadline. Phew, since I got into my dream school and probably wouldn't have attended if accepted anyway. I used that money to buy myself a nice coat for this midwest winter.

Hi everyone, I'm back for another round of applications (last time I "settled" for a masters program, which I'm currently finishing up). This time I'm applying to 14 schools. All my apps have been submitted, as well as two of my letters, so now I'm just checking to make sure the schools have received everything so I can finally relax (as much as one can relax when applying). Best of luck to everyone!

@redheadblueheel: Between app fees & GRE scores my total was around $1000...though I lucked out that my transcripts were free at both my previous schools.

For those who are applying to phd social psych in Ivy League schools (e.g., Harvard, Columbia) , do you mind sharing your gpa, gre, and a very brief CV (publication, research experience, etc)? Also, what are your backup schools??

Thanks! :lol:
