Okay, so perhaps this thread will lead to yet another bitch session (which seems to be absolutely necessary when you're breaching grad school time), but I could really use some help/reassurance if any one has got it! I am an undergrad at the University of Kansas getting ready to graduate in December 2008 w/a BGS in Psychology and minor in English. I was thinking of applying to grad schools in Dec 08 & then going to grad school in 2009. I'm looking at a couple of schools in Canada, UMKC, Ohio, Illinois, and several East coast schools. With all the rejection that people get even with great scores and GRE, it makes me wonder if I should even bother! What kind of schools are people mostly applying to? Ivy League? Public? Private? Professional Psych programs? I am starting to study for the GRE now with the intention to take the test in October. When I graduate I should have over a 3.3, but I've been abroad the last year so my grades are still up in the air! I'm doing a research lab in the fall that's focused on Autism and Down syndrome children. For those that have gotten into graduate school: Where did you apply to? Did you have outside activities that contributed to your application? What was your GPA? What was your degree type? (BA, BSc, BGS) What was your GRE? What was your Psychology GRE test? Thanks guys & good luck with all this!
