One good tip I want to share with you guys if you are preparing your answers to the most common interview questions is that keep your answers succinct, easy to understand, and to the point. I don't th

I posted on this thread a while back in the summer saying I was applying to masters programs. Really excited to find out that today I got an offer for the MS in Applied Stats & Psychometrics progr

Finally, I have been officially admitted to FSU measurement and statistics program. Yay!

Guys. This application season is almost at the end for me. I applied to 11 programs, got 6 acceptances and 3 rejections so far. I withdrew one of my applications because they wanted to accept me into their masters program. I'm still waiting for the last program. It's been a very successful app season for me. 

It was not last year. I applied to 13 clinical psych programs and got 13 rejections.

I took GRE five times (including a psych GRE) and TOEFL four times. I just don't give up. I keep working on myself.

I just wanted to say that if you didn't get into your dream program this cycle, try it again. Learn to deal with rejections and frustrations. Re-evaluate your strengths, weaknesses, whether you are a great fit for the programs you applied to, and then get back on your horse and keep on moving forward. Never give up if being a PhD is your dream.

This is my third app cycle (I got into a masters program in the first cycle) and I finally made it this time, because I've learned many things from my failures and I never, ever give up.

I wish you all the best and hope we can keep in contact!

Nice and congrats. I am sure it was hard-won and totally worth it. Looking forward to hearing about your decision as well!
