Good programs should be consistent in their quality. That a program is not suggests that the outlier student outcomes (i.e., in a PsyD program that means things like being competitive for APA internship match, having low debt, etc.) are not attributable to the training model since all students receive the same training.I do agree that there should be smaller cohorts. It is not a research focussed program, which also changes who and how many they can take...though more are taken than probably should be. There are definitely folks who would be better served with a masters program, or folks who already hold master's degrees who don't necessarily need doctorates for their professional development. I don't believe that the match rates are reflective of a problem with quality of the training or the viability of the candidates that the school produces, however. There are some really great clinicians who have trained at the Wright Institute, who are very competitive for accredited internships and postdocs.
Being competitive for an accredited internship isn't a high bar, thats literally the lowest bar. Everyone should be at that point, bar minimum. If I need to see a doctor, I want my doctor to have a accredited medical degree. That's a bare minimum. Same thing.
