    I didn't even think of that, but perhaps it is! I was just wondering what "leading university" even means. They didn't define their construct very well ;).

    Well unless I am missing something, everything that I read looks like good news. Or at least, average..

    Better than reading that I have no job prospects in 6 years.

    a) I'd definitely go with average. Good is relative. We certainly don't make as much as "real doctors" (gasp).

    b) It doesn't mention much about academic psychologists - not cool. :0

    It was poorly written and left out a number of core areas that psychologists practice. As for the quoted salaries...I think they are low, but maybe that's just me.
