GPA of 3.39, sophomore, want to get into a Clinical Psyc PhD program?0kmk2012-11-06 06:26:04
I'm currently freaking out but I need to be slapped more with reality for more motivation... I'm a Sophomore in college, Psychology/French minor and have a GPA of 3.39. However, this last semester (Spring, Sophomore) I may have done worse due to relationship issues and this really difficult class I took that I didn't bring myself to drop out of. I really want to study depression and substance abuse and am currently entering a research lab for the next two years (this would make a total of 6 semester working in labs) for clinical psychology (other two were cognitive psychology/neuroscience) dealing with the topic. I'm planning to write a scholarly paper for it and also planning to volunteer tons during the summer. I'm studying for the GRE from now. I'm very nervous about the competition but I want to succeed, I want at least a 3.8 GPA to be more competitive but I feel like I will never make it. Any tips/suggestions?[View Answers]

Which college do you think is better? University of Maine in Farmington OR University of Southern Maine?0Ingrid2012-11-06 05:28:47
I'm from Vermont, but I want to attend college in Maine. I'm a junior so I have some time to reach a final decision. There's two colleges in Maine that really interest me: University of Maine in Farmington and University of Southern Maine. And there's two career options that really interest me: Psychology and Pre-Med. If I choose to major in psych is one of the colleges that I named have a better program than the other? What about for pre-med? If there's anyone who has attended either of these schools or is in enrolled in one of them right now, could you tell me a bit about what you like about it? I'm going to visit each of these colleges within the next couple of months. I'm going to Farmington in less than two weeks. I just want to know what I should expect on campus and such. Thanks for answering!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![View Answers]
What should I do for a career?0irsha2012-11-06 05:22:41
I'm 32 and I have a bachelors in History and another one in Religion with a minor in psychology. I work in a call center which I hate. My GPA from college is 2.5 becausse i did bad my first two years with 'd' averages and then 3.3 the last few years. I don't know if I can get accepted into a grad school program. Also, I can't take anymore undergrad classes because I reached my limit on what I can borrow as an undergrad student. What should I do? I work a full and part time job now but neither of these are 'careers or could lead to one at the current company I'm at'. My favorite subjects are Psycholoyg and History and I'm interested in Religion and Mythology as well. I'm an INFP myers briggs. I never thought I'd wind up with this crappy of a life at my age. What do i do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!![View Answers]
How can i gain clinical experience to become a PA?0dzingai2012-11-06 01:56:39
i'm currently a senior in HS. i haven't decided which college i am going to, but i want to get my BS (i heard that having a bachelors looks more favorable) as of now, i have indicated to schools that i want to major in psychology. many people have told me that this is a good major for PA school, but my main reason is that i truly am interested in it. in four years when i graduate with my BS in psychology, i'm afraid i won't get accepted to a PA school because i won't have any clinical experience. i have volunteered in several hospitals as a high schooler and i plan to continue during my undergrad years, but someone told me that this is not enough...they said that volunteering will not look as favorable as work experience. i know that most people who apply to PA school are already nurses, paramedics, etc. how can i gain this kind of experience so that i can apply to PA school right out of undergrad? i don't want to waste time after undergrad trying to get certified in some other 2 year program. can i do internships while i am in undergrad? will that help me? any advice would be great, thanks! :)[View Answers]

Should I add a class in?0nas2012-11-05 21:02:23
My dad keeps bothering me to add in a class. I don't want to because I believe I'm set, plus I'm already taking 2 hard classes. He keeps saying "oh I'm not going to pay for your tuition if you have to take classes in the summer" and he believes I'm going to drop chem (he did not say so, but it's so obvious). Sorry about the rant lol I'm already overwhelmed and it's my first week... Here's my courses: I'm taking 14 credits this semester, and I'm thinking about adding a seminar the next semester which counts as 1 credit, so that's 29 credits in total Freshman year. I want to start off slow because I did not try my hardest in high school, so I want to find my strong and weak points. I'm taking General Chemistry 4 credits General Psychology 3 credits A Writing Class 3 credits (every freshman has to take this, and it's very hard apparently) PreCalc College Math (I've already taken Precalc, but apparently this is very hard as well, and has a high failure rate. Though I might be switching) I'm also adding in a tutoring program that'll tutor me in Chemistry and Precalc. It doesn't have any credits, but it adds classes on to my schedule. Is this enough? Should I really add a class on here?[View Answers]

Chances of getting into top colleges?0Keri Ann2012-11-05 05:23:59
My dream school is Duke, so that's my #1. I'm planning on applying to Georgetown, Northwestern and UPenn too. University of Maryland is my backup school, I'm pretty confident I'll get in.. but what are my chances of getting a FULL ride? A lot of the seniors from my high school are hearing back, and I know 4 people who've already been offered full rides from Maryland. I go to a science math, computer science/ engineering magnet high school. We ranked #60 on Newsweek's top 100. I don't know my class rank, but it won't be very high. I think there's 330 in my graduating class. 50 other kids are in my program (we all applied in 8th grade, being selected out of 600 students that applied from across the county) and theres 2 other magnet programs, but they're not as rigorous. THere's like 200 magnet kids out of my class of 330. If I were to guess, my class rank would be at 60/330. Which sucks, but more than half of the 330 is magnet. I'm currently a sophomore. I know my stats are pretty low for top colleges/ivy league, but my schools' really stressful. I have to get up at 5:30 in the morning, the bus ride is 40 minutes, I take 8 classes a day, a mandatory study hall, don't get home until 5 PM... I usually get 5 or 6 hours of sleep. It's kind of overwhelming, so that's why I'm not making the best grades. Unweighted GPA = 3.77 Weighted GPA = 4.48 PSAT scores from the beginning of 10th grade = 202 I'll be taking a SAT prep course this summer. I plan to take the Math 2 SAT subject test this june, the bio sat subject test and the spanish subject test next year. 9th grade classes: Hon U.S. history Hon english Spanish 2 Phys ed Magnet precalculus AB (we have a weird math system because of the magnet program) Fundamentals of Computer Science Research and experimentation Magnet Physics (full course taken in 1 semester) Magnet Chemistry (full course taken in 1 semester) 10th grade classes: Magnet biology Magnet earth &space science Algorithms &Data Structures (java) Principles of Engineering Hon Spanish 3 Hon english Magnet precalc c/ functions b (precal abc, 3 semesters, is basically alg2+precalc. functions b is random units from calculars and multivar calculus that my math teacher decides to teach us) AP Government My plan for 11th grade: AP language and composition AP World history AP BC Calc Cell Physiology (1 sem) Biochemistry (1 sem + take the AP bio exam) Research and Design/ Senior Research Project A (we're all supposed to do an intership the summer between junior and senior year at a science institution. most people do them at the university. I'm hoping to do it at NIH or NIST, if they'll accept me. every year at least 1 kid from our program does it at NIH, at least 2 do it at NIST) Hon Spanish 4 AP Statistics Marine Biology (1 sem) Analytical chemistry (1 sem) My plan for 12th grade: AP literature AP Multivariable Calc Genetics Anatomy &Physiology Senior Research Project B (1 sem) Band/music composition&theory/ chorus (I haven't decided which i'll take) AP Spanish Language AP Psychology I have an empty spot for 1 semester. I don't know if I'll take an 8th class in 2nd semester. I think I want to just have 7 classes 2nd semester of senior year. Volunteer hours: 220 I volunteer at saturday school for elementary kids. Extracurriculars: 9th grade: webmaster's club 10th grade: interact club (fundraising), it's academic, MD envirothon I'll do more in 11th and 12th grade. I know I need to. I plan to do a summer program sponsored by howard hughes medical institution @ the university of maryland. I'm applying right now, and hopefully will get accepted. I already mentioned, I'll be doing an biomedical research internship between junior and senior year. I'll be taking the Math level 2 SAT subject test this june. I heard it's pretty easy (compared to my math class) so I'm anticipating 750+, hopefully 800. I'll take the biology SAT subject test next year. I'll take the spanish SAT subject test either next year or senior year. I really want to apply to Duke, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, UPenn, Northwestern, Brown... UMD if I don't get into any of these schools. Am I shooting too high/unrealistically?[View Answers]
Should I bother completing my minors as well?0Shaniquwa2012-11-05 05:02:15
So, I'm currently triple majoring in Psychology, Sociology and Social Sciences. And I'm on track to complete a certificate in Leadership studies in Psychology, as well as a double minor in Cultural Anthropology and Women/Gender Studies. I decided I really wanted to take a class that conflicted with the final class I was going to take for my Cultural Anthropology minor. And I haven't officially worked my Women/Gender studies minor into my plan I want to into a Masters of Public Health program and become a Health Educator on a college campus.And in a way all of these are somewhat interrelated, but I was wondering if I should continue? Is it going to help me at this point even though I'm triple majoring and involved in on-campus activities?[View Answers]
What college?!?0Mick c2012-11-05 04:07:11
im 16 &beginning my college search. i used to always want to go to princeton, but now that im really looking into it, princeton doesnt seem to offer the majors im passionate about. im top of a class of about 150, will have taken approximately 12 ap classes by the time i graduate, have 400+ hours of community service, &do a lot of extracurricular activities. right now, i really want to write &direct films for my job. i used to think about being a lawyer or a doctor, but if i choose either of those careers, i may be successful, but never fulfilled or satisfied. i want to go to a great college because i know i have a good chance of getting in, but i want to go to college for filmmaking and screenplay writing. maybe even double in psychology- not because i want to be a psychologist but because the human mind interests me &can help me create influential movies. lol sorry for rambling, but basically what are top colleges that have great film programs(yale,stanford,columbia,etc??)[View Answers]

Graduate School (Psychology)?0Breya2012-11-04 21:44:02
I decided a month ago that I want to go on for my Masters in Psychology (the type doesn't matter.) I have dealt with a lot of personal depression issues my entire time during college because I never knew exactly what I wanted to study or do with my life. Last semester, I decided to minor in psychology just to find out why I was always so unhappy. After working with a therapist and talking with my parents, I decided that I wanted to spend the rest of my life working on mental problems and issues with others. I am in my 9th semester of undergraduate study. I have a 2.0 gpa with a 2.25 average gpa in psych courses. I could've done better and should have. I could blame it on the fact that I was miserable for years and finally know what I want. But too late to make excuses. Does anyone know if there is a chance of me getting into a respectable graduate program without having to go a 6th year to major in psych and possibly be able to take graduate level courses? I know all the usual requirements that you need like GPA and GRE scores and experience, but has anyone been in the same type of situation (or know someone) who through hard work and effort, possibly made it into a graduate program like I want to? I am retaking a few classes to get my average psych gpa and overall gpa up next semester and want to apply for next fall grad school... thanks[View Answers]
