What exactly do you have to do during the HPSP?1Mari2016-07-13 23:30:22
I'm sorry if this question sounds stupid, I don't know much information about the HPSP (health professions scholarship program) for the military. I'm only 17 but trying to figure out what exactly I want to do with my future. I plan on getting my PhD in Clinical Psychology and if I enroll in the HPSP after college, my understanding is that after I have completed my service, medical school will be paid for. Now what I want to know is what exactly is a psychologist expected to do whilst in the program? Am I counseling soldiers? Or is the program not specific to one major?[View Answers]

Psych undergrad degree: BA or BS and Why?0christopher2012-11-06 07:05:44
The college I'm attending allows psychology majors to choose whether they wish to receive a BA or BS in psychology at graduation. Are there particular advantages to one or the other? I'm currently a sophomore and I'm not entirely sure what I want to do after graduating, but I'll probably end up applying to graduate programs in either cognitive or industrial &organizational psychology. NOT counseling psychology.[View Answers]
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]
What Do You Think of a Person that Had a DUI at age 19?0iormares2012-11-06 05:57:01
I was convicted of DUI at age 19. I started drinking when I went off to college. I was raped and my boyfriend at the time called me a whore and didn't believe that I was raped. The attacker told everyone it was consensual I was called a slut and whore by all these people I didn't know. I started drinking to cope... Anyways, I know that in no way excuses what I did. I feel terrible. I think about it every day. I wish I could go back in time. However, I am not a senior in college and have a 3.8. I am going to apply to a PhD program in clinical psychology/women's studies so I can help rape victims and other various people with mental health issues. Anyways, is my life over because I had a DUI at 19?I am so ashamed about it.[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]

Boston University Online Master's Degree Info Needed.?0Looking for someone to check my answer2012-11-06 04:12:55
I have a Bachelor's Degree from Excelsior College, which is a non-competitive college in up-state New York. My Degree is in Liberal Science, and most of my courses are in Criminal Justice and Psychology. My GPA is a 3.29, and I have also been in the Coast Guard for 7 years. How difficult would it be for me to get into the online Master's Degree program for Criminal Justice at Boston University? I know BU is a top school, and I am concerned about the school I received my Bachelor's Degree at not being up to par. I think my Coast Guard experience will help, but I am unsure. Any insight would be great. Thank you.[View Answers]
Who knows about the SMART grant?0Bhuwan gupta2012-11-06 04:02:41
I just changed my major to biology, this fall will begin my 4th year of college. in the spring, I'm enrolling in an allied health program for medical technology, which is a bachelor of science degree. my gpa is 3.44. I have already been awarded a pell grant for the 08 09 school year for $2800 dollars (about) I guess what i'm asking is, should I be eligible for the smart grant even though I *just* changed my major? It was psychology before. Also, should I talk to my financial aid officer at school and tell them that i changed majors and am now eligible? or should they figure it out on their own?[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]

What are the pro's and con's of a PsyD in Clinical Psychology vs a M.S.W. with a L.C.S.W?0sloth2012-11-06 00:22:50
I'm coming up on my senior year, I'm getting a B.S. with a minor in Psych. I really want to work with mental health, preferably in my own practice. I know its 5 years for the PsyD and at least 100k. The M.S.W is only 2 years (plus an extra 1 1/2 or so for the L.C.S.W) and about 40k. I'm going to be 22 when I start these programs and I want to be able to settle down and AFFORD kids. 100k and 5 years is a LOT of commitment, especialy when most PsyDs dont come with 20k research internships. So far all I have found is some 4k clinical internships. I want to counsel people, to work with their anxiety and self esteem, to be able to diagnose and create treatment plans. And I'm certainly not opposed to working in group or clinic settings. I'm terribly worried about paying for college, i'm terrible at scholarship writing and my parents make enough money to limit financial aid, but they certainly are not going to pay for it. I'm so unsure as to which program to choose. M.S.W. certainly seems quicker and cheaper, but will it allow me to do what I want? I'd love the opinions of any M.S.W.s or PsyDs. How did you make your decision?[View Answers]
