This is my 4th year. I have a strong science background and will be getting my psychology degree this coming summer. I have decided to switch to psyD after realizing I had no desire to be a physician and my main interest was practicing psychotherapy. I'm doing research right now, and if I stay in the research lab by the time I apply in the 2015 cycle I will have over 2 years experience in the same lab. I don't have a ton of clinical experience, only over 110 hours in a pediatric ER; however, the hospital wasn't in the best area of town, so there was always a social worker on site and I would sometimes have to "babysit" while he interviewed the parents. The ER also included a few psychiatric evaluation rooms with cameras, and I was constantly exposed to a wide range of patients like teens with drug addictions, those who were being sexually and physically abused, etc. I have other extracurriculars and volunteer experience but those were mostly pre-med related. I'm wondering what else I would need to do to make myself a competitive applicant? I have about a 3.767 GPA overall, and I am currently taking winter break to study for the GRE. Should I get a volunteer position in a psychiatric ward? Do I need to do research in a second lab or will the research experience I have suffice?
