Reading through some of the threads, Ive started to get a little down about prospects of grad school. Heres my story: I was a Sociology major, on a path in AFROTC towards a military career. 2 years into school, I changed my mind after taking several psych courses (then my minor). Anyway, I fell in love with the program, and really enjoyed the idea of being an instructor/practitioner someday. I graduated in May, but due to a previously unremarkable college career where I depended on a career as a military officer, I escaped with just below a 2.9 GPA. I currently work for Devereux treatment centers here in Houston, and have begun to network with various psychologists and social workers. So I know that my GPA is far from stellar, but I have plans for some post-bac courses, and plan to get as much experience through work and hopefully some RA chances in the next year or two. However, even with experience, some good letters, and a heck of a GRE, would I have a chance in heck at getting into a Clinical PhD program, or should I just slink away and not waste my time? Would a decent post-bac load or a masters help? Thank you.
