Just curious to know how many programs you all are applying to? I plan on applying to around 10 PhD programs in clinical psych.

    I'm applying to 5 PHD and 1 masters. Terrified, but excited to have it all be over.

    I applied to 6 when I applied many moons ago. It is important to focus on fit vs number. Applying to a few excellent fit programs (in terms of research and clinical interests) is better than applying to a dozen so-so fit programs.
