I am currently an RA. I have experience in research; 3 publications, 1 co-author of a chapter. I like research, I just don't have experience in psychology research. Or rather I volunteered in a psych lab for 6 months but totally hated it to the point that I'm not planning to discuss it in my personal statement (but it was the PI). I like the actual research process.
So stats courses are needed then... how many? 2- 3? Or will 1 do?
