SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I am seeking some advice about how important Stats are as a prerequisite for clinical psych PhD program. I'm a non-traditional applicant. Last year, I applied to 4 schools out of curiosity and got 1 interview, no acceptances. This year, I am planning to reapply to a wider range of places-- mix of research focused and clinical focused, possibly just right down the middle. In addition to shadowing and getting publications, I want to take a course that will boost my non-psych B.A. having self's chances of getting in somewhere. I guess my question is partly whether if I plan to apply for more clinically oriented programs, the class will make any difference. Long story short: Would Applied Stats help with my application? I would be working full time and taking a class. I have also looked at Experimental Psych. I took neither of these classes as an undergrad. Thanks so much for any replies.
