My stats are:
GRE: 600 V, 700 Q, 4.0 AW
Psychology GRE: 740 (91st percentile)
GPA: 3.71 (well-respective university), psychology major, got As in stats, research methods, abnormal psyc, etc.
Research experience: 1.5 years as an undergrad, 6 months as a full-time research assistant, no publications, but did formulate and run a research project under the supervision of my major professor as an undergrad
Clinical experience: 6 months as a mental health counselor at a hospital, 6 months as a clinical-research intern
Solid SOP, good letters of recommendation, but probably not "outstanding"
Good research match with POI
Please be honest, what are my chances? Thank you SDNers!
Well you did a solid job on the GRE and you applied to a lot of schools, so that helps. You also have a good amount of reserach experience. It really depends on your personal statement and how much you match with regard to reserach. Did you go to any conferences to present research?
