Inez_Only Posted March 25, 2017 Share Posted March 25, 2017 I'm just looking for clarification... I'm very confused by "direct entry" PhD programs. I've seen a lot of people say that they will be applying to PhD programs after doing their undergrad, but most of the schools I looked at said you can only apply "directly to the PhD program" if you've completed a Masters degree. I only have my undergrad degree and will be applying to MA programs this year but I have full intentions of completing a PhD in clinical psych. If I can apply directly to do a PhD and skip the MA then that would be great! However, I also heard that this only really happens for exceptional students... My CV is stellar but my numbers (GPA/GRE) are not super competitive so in the end I'll probably still need to apply to MA programs anyways. Can someone clarify this for me just so I get a better understanding of it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
