Background info.: I'm currently a grad student in a public health program - I was a psyc. major in college and have always wanted to do something in the field (right now I'm leaning towards health psychology...) I've been considering med school for psychiatry, but recently I've come to the realization that a PhD program might be a better fit for me. BUT. This was a very very very recent decision on my part - I didn't start thinking about the practicalities of this until a few days and just realized that the April subject test is in a week. I don't want to take the test in November - I want to take it now and then re-take it if I have to. I'm fairly worried about studying but the thing is, if there is one thing I'm ok at, its psychology, having studied it for 2.5 yrs. The things that I'm worried about are history, learning/cognition, and developmental (didn't take a course on this college). Neuropsyc, social, personality are all things I think I could do ok with. I don't have a job right now, my classes are in the evening and I don't have much to do this week. I'd cram cram cram and then show up at the test center next Sunday to do standby testing. So - ....is this possible in the span of a week?? Do programs look down on people taking the subject test twice? And is it unlikely that I'll be able to even get in standby (I'm in Boston)? Or is this absolutely idiotic? Thanks everyone in advance!
