Is there a group/thread for folks specifically applying for entry Fall 2009? Would anyone like to form such a group or even just swap email addresses? My reasons are selfish... I am a bok-bok chicken-bok. I don't want to go through this alone. The board is a tremendous support but I think it could be a great supplement if I could purposefully follow along with the progress of a few others on this journey. If this is a duplicate thread, I apologize, feel free to delete or move as necessary. If anyone is interested, please reply or pm me. About me: I guess I'm officially non-trad (29 yrs old) previous grad study (MSW) undergrad background (elem edu/psych) research completed (psychopharm/SSRI, kinship care, health disparities, PTSD-- no off campus publications) research interests (rural health, STRONGLY in favor of further research concerning supposed early onset of severe and persistent mental illness in children/adolescents, effects of mental health crises on academic performance, interventions in children of the severe and persistently mentally ill, etc) likely applications: School Psych PsyD, School Psych PhD, School Psych, M.Ed., Clinical PsyD, Combined-Integrated School/Clinical PsyD, Combined Counseling/School PhD (more or less, still reviewing programs) mid-low range competitive app (transcript concerns) 1 previous Clinical PsyD app, waitlisted @ midwest school that was a great match for me when I had a health focus I feel like I just wrote an online dating app... anyone want to be my friend? Be my buddy, I don't bite... Hope all of you are well and hope someone else is interested so I don't have to keep freaking out alone. Be well!
