andrewbaxley86 Posted November 13, 2011 Share Posted November 13, 2011 Hello everyone- I am feeling a bit discouraged by browsing the admissions statistics to the various counseling psychology doctorate programs around the country. I am really hoping someone might be able to give me some sound advice on getting in to a decent program. A bit about me- Planning to apply for programs starting Aug. 2013 Undergrad degree in psych- 3.45 GPA, with a 3.7 in my final 60 credits Will be taking the GRE this coming January Experience: One semester internship in a mental health clinic, 7 months working as an advocate for at risk youth, 2 semesters as a research assistant (cognitive and social), and some other less applicable stuff as well. My questions are these: 1. What can I do in the next year or so to improve my chances? What sorts of experience would speak the loudest to admissions people? 2. Would I be better off trying for a masters in first, then moving on to the PhD when I finish? If so, which specific types of masters programs should I be looking into? Terminal or non-terminal? General psych or counseling? Any other advice from someone who has been or is currently in my situation would be so very much appreciated. Thank you!
