I am beginning to look at PsyD programs to apply to in the Fall and I have noticed the high amount of women in the programs. Does being a male help you actually get in? I have heard that many programs have quotas to fill, but I didnt think it would be by gender. Also, I am Middle Eastern (Iranian, but US citizen). Does that count as a minority? Are there quotas to fill as well? I usually check the Caucasian box, but for the best chances in apps, should I check the "other" box since I do not see a spot for Middle Easterners? Thanks for any help.
