Hi all, I'm applying to several grad programs in school psychology this fall, and I'm considering Rutgers University School Psychology Psy.D program. It'd great to hear some honest reviews about the program. How competitive is it to get in? How well does it prepare someone who is interested in working in both the school system and other clinical settings (e.g., hospitals, clinics)? Is there funding for PsyD students?
Thank you in advance and stay safe!

Could you dm me as well, specifically about the clinical program as well though?
Honestly I can't speak much about the clinical program other than that they're more psychodynamically focused, they have some excellent faculty, and their internship outcomes are outstanding (think Montefiore, Harvard, etc). There are few research opportunities on that end though (or at least there were when I was a student). Most of the research funding comes from the school dept.

Be extremely careful about Rutgers if you are male or at all political. They are known for being exceedingly biased against men, and also will not respect your rights to free speech no matter what gender you are.

That's a pretty strong claim, and strong claims require strong evidence. Do you have any?

I would be exceedingly cautious about getting a school psychology psyd, especially if it's not from a public and funded institution. I have a Ph.D., in school psychology. It's been a very versatile degree for me. I worry that the psyd would limit your ability to teach because most school psych programs are in universities.

I strongly disagree with programs dropping the eds and moving for a psyd.

College Fix simply records the legal issues associated with various schools. Take what they say as you will.

College Fix as in the conservative news website? I looked there and couldn't find a thing about Rutgers. Care to share a link?

I'd be wary of that site, haven't visited, but it appears that they have an issue with not passing fact checks frequently by neutral bias and fact checkers.

Oh yeah, it's completely garbage. And it makes me suspicious that the person who is complaining about "free speech" being violated has an agenda.

Oh, there's basis for the bias here. Multiple independent, non-partisan media tracking sites rank College Fix as unreliable and dubious. Let's take on recent example, lots of favorable coverage of Devos and her administration, while not disclosing that her son sits on the board. Or that the site receives a lot of money from a fund that the Devos' donate very heavily to.

This site also posted a column talking about liberals supposed support of "post-birth abortions" with no evidence, and essentially citing "well, I heard" or "a friend of a friend" heard.

It's a deeply biased site lacking any real journalistic standards. At times, outright lies and blatant fear mongering. I would agree with others, this site has given me no reason to trust what it says with the flat out lies its told in the past. I'd strongly suggest that people looking for legal issues look for more neutral sources. Generally, these will be matters of public record, so no need to got to websites that spout simple-minded conspiracy theories.

Please provide a link to support what you are saying. I can't find anything relating to Rutgers on there and I'm not giving that cesspool of a website any more views.

I think we can all agree that CF is problematic, at best. If we'd like to discuss that particular issue, we can break it out into another thread. But, we should probably return to the original question if people have legitimate feedback of the Rutgers program.
