Hi, I'm a current junior and looking to apply to PhD/PsyD programs next year. I already have a preliminary list of PhD programs picked out, based on my main research and clinical interest (the same), but I'm also looking at PsyD programs, as I want to practice clinically and have no desire to go into academia. I'll have a GPA of 3.8 or thereabouts when applying and a decent amount of research (4 semesters in my primary research area at application time, including an honors thesis in that area and probably research work this summer in the same area [publication *may* be possible), 3 semesters of work in another area [running assessments], a possible second honors thesis in a related interest, a few semesters of work in other labs), a lot of teaching experience (TAing, independently teaching classes and seminars, etc.) , and some clinical experience (two years [probably] of work running substance abuse groups, a 450 clinical internship my senior year). 1) Will my research experience have the potential to *hurt* me in anyway when applying to PsyD programs? I really love research and feel it has really enhanced my understanding of psychology, so I don't regret it in anyway but was wondering if it may raise eyebrows, especially as my goal is practice. 2) Do I have too little clinical experience? I'm worried about this--the clinical work I've done is actually really clinical for an undergraduate, but I don't know how much PsyD programs value this. Can my teaching experience count in anyway, especially as part of it is in a supervisory role for undergraduate practica students? I've considered looking for clinical work along my research work this summer. Would that help? 3) I'm looking at programs like Immaculata, Chesnut Hill (but the low APPIC/APA internship rate has me worried), Wright State (great focus for my interests but higher tuition rates.), possibly Nova (great program but higher tuition), Hartford (great but likely a reach), University of Indianapolis, etc. I'll be buying the Insider's Guide soon , but if anyone has any feedback on admission to those programs (and whether I'm being completely delusional in thinking I have a chance), I'd love feedback! Many thanks and happy holidays!
