RebootedJordan Posted August 19, 2017 Share Posted August 19, 2017 (edited) Hey guys, I'm a recent graduate from the University of Manitoba and was planning on applying to graduate school for Clinical Psychology or Social Psychology programs and was wondering if I can get into these programs without having an Honors degree and no research experience. I've looked into a bunch of programs and they all either state Honors degree or equivalent required or preferred. Here's some Background: I graduated with a 4 Year Bachelors of Science degree with a Major in Psychology and minors in Chemistry and Biology. My first two years I was majoring in Biochemistry but taking electives in Psychology, which interested me. After my first 2 years, due to my horrific GPA (2.5 on a 4.5 scale) and realizing I was more passionate about Psychology I switched majors. These last 2 years I've taken all Psychology courses and have maintained a perfect GPA of 4.5 out of 4.5 in all of my courses, and I also had A+s in all of my Psychology courses I took as electives, while I was still a biochem major. So my CGPA isn't the greatest but my Psychology GPA and last 2 year GPA is good. I wrote my GREs and did okay ( VR - 158, QR-163, AW- 4.5). I have no research experience as of right now. In terms of volunteer experience, I have lots of hours put in at a seniors home and hospital, but this was during my first 3 years of university. Also, for work experience I don't have anything relevant or related to Psychology. So in other words, my ECs and suck. Do I still have a chance at getting into any grad clinical psych or social psych program in Canada or USA? Which one's do you guys think I have a shot in or recommend? Any advice or feedback on the matter would be appreciated. Thanks. Edit: I'm open to applying to US schools Edited August 19, 2017 by RebootedJordan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
