hannah0322 Posted September 4, 2013 Share Posted September 4, 2013 Hi everyone! I posted a few weeks ago about my raw scores, and now I have gotten my official scores of the GRE. I am looking to apply to clinical psychology programs (PhD and PsyD Clinical), as well as a few Master's in General Psych programs (in order to retake the test again and bump up my score if I don't get into any doctoral programs) and a few Master's Mental Health Counseling (terminal LPC programs). I feel so confused, because most people seem to be making the "average" the schools mention, but some other people seem to get in with some outlying scores, if they have a compelling and solid application in other areas. None of the programs I am applying to mention a hard minimum, but they mention averages on their full disclosures. I am not sure if I make the cut - HELP!! My Scores: V: 151, Q: 143, Writing 4.5 Psych Test, I'm taking in October, but so far I'm scoring very high on the practice tests. I have a 8.730 at a research state school, three (four by this spring) semesters as an RA in a really good research lab with good grad school faculty members, pending poster project for research lab, pending publication into a professional journal of my clinical internship experience, two para-professional mental health jobs, two clinical internships (one mental health, one school-based), three honors societies, clinical fieldwork with the graduate school affiliated with my university, two volunteering positions, one mentoring program, and an independent research study following the mentoring program I am currently in. I am also getting outstanding letters of recommendation and think I have pretty strong personal statements (tailoring each one to "fit" faculty members of each program I'm applying to). Clinical PhD: - CUNY City College - Adelphi University - Fairleigh Dickinson Clinical PsyD: - Rutgers (long-shot, but I work with a lot of faculty members from GSAPP and my LORs are from them) - LIU CW Post - Yeshiva - Chestnut Hill Counseling PhD: - Seton Hall University Master's Psychology (pre-doc programs): - New School - Columbia - Hunter College Master's Mental Health (terminal LPC programs): - NYU (no GRE required) - Fordham (no GRE required) - TCNJ - Monmouth University I am going to be completely shut out of the doctoral programs? Has anyone here gotten into these schools or know anyone who has been accepted into any of these programs with a lower GRE score? I don't have the time to re-study and re-take the GRE now, and have it making a large, increasing impact on my scores. If I don't get into the doctoral programs, but I get into the one/two year pre-doc programs, I will certainly have the time to study and re-take it before re-applying the following year. What do you all think? Thanks!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
