Can you still apply to grad school if you don't meet the GPA requirement?3gyla2018-01-12 09:07:35
I am feeling extremely disheartened right now. I graduated from university in 2006 with a degree in psychology and with a GPA of 2.69. I could have done much better, but I was dealing with several medical issues during those years. I started the online application for my MSW (Masters in Social Work) this morning, but then I realized the minimum GPA is a 2.75 to apply. I have many people lined up to give strong letters of recommendation, and my personal statement is very strong as well. I volunteer at a senior center, speak fluent French, and fix computers on the side, so I am fairly well-rounded. I am feeling disheartened, however, and feel like I should just give up. Should I even bother applying, or will the admissions office laugh at me? The GRE is not required, so that will not sway the admissions process either way. Please help me, I feel like my entire body is heavy and numb with this sinking feeling.[View Answers]

Major selection?0Ariza2012-11-06 07:12:57
I am trying to decide between psychology and English with a teaching concentration. My friends all tell me I would be a good teacher, and my parents say I should be a psychologist like my uncle. I've read into both a lot, and they both interest me. The trouble is, the teaching program is really intense, so I can't switch back and forth after my sophomore year.[View Answers]
Can I improve GPA after a first bad semester?0Philippa2012-11-06 07:10:52
I will be completely honest: I did not take my first semester in junior college as seriously as I should have. My GPA was 2.66. In high school I was one of the top 1/3 in my class and I usually received all A's and B's (if not one or two C's) I nearly failed English this semester (I took it seriously as first, then I slacked off later on because of the unnecessarily easy assignments). I got caught up in the partying scene at college (something that I was never involved in during high school), making new friends, and enjoying the newly obtained freedom. I had this disturbing mentality that I didn't have to work that hard... but now I want to change and go back to the old me- the one who took every class, assignment, and exam seriously. Do you think that if I work very hard and manage a high GPA for the remaining semesters of junior college, I can get accepted into a good medical school? I am a psychology major, but I'm stretching myself to take pre-medicine classes as well. I need to develop some good study habits, ones that I'll actually stick to doing.[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]
What type of degree would I need?0Lissa2012-11-06 07:03:21
Hello, I'm hoping to major in Animal Reproductive Physiology, but I'm not sure which degree would be the best level too complete at. I would very much rather to work hands on, rather then in the laboratory, as in, physically going out there and testing and inseminating the animals myself, instead of sitting at the side and making charts, etc. Could I do this with a bachelors or masters? Or do I absolutely need a Doctors degree for this? Does it help any that i've had plenty of hands on experience in doing such? I grew up on a ranch/farm where we inseminated our cows and such. I'm still young, 18, so I know there's still plenty of time, and I am pulling a double major in Clinical Psychology so I do have something to fall back on. But it would mean the world if you could lend me a nugget of knowledge :)) Please and Thank you! As an added note, I'm attending Sul Ross State University in Alpine, TX. if that's any help.[View Answers]

About business consulting jobs..MA in Industial and Organizational Psychology or MBA degree?0I R Good 2012-11-06 06:45:08
My major is Economics. After my graduation from University, I worked as an accountant in a multinational company about 2 years. But did not work out for me, I was very busy which was fine for me but it was very routine. Then I went to US and had Management and Marketing diplomas. I really like marketing. After I went back to my home country, I started to work again for a multinational company as PR Specialist. This job was exciting actually but it turned out such a piece of cake for me and there was and is no challenge. And I've been thinking to have a Master's degree and finally had a chance to start a program. Now I am hover around to concentrate in Marketing or Management Consulting. Marketing is interesting though there is not much opportunity in the city I live, but there are many small businesses need consulting. I also interested in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. SO I need your opinions, really dont know which to choose and concentrate on. I do not want any more career change in my life and want to stick one thing. Besides I want to ask which one is preferable for management consulting I/O psychology or MBA degree? Thank you [View Answers]

Why does it seem like it's harder to get into PhD in psychology than a law or pharmacy degree?0keiffon2012-11-06 06:38:01
And possibly a medical degree too! I mean, consider the top schools. PhD schools include Stanford, UPenn, Michigan and a few others, and their acceptance rate (PhD program, not Masters) is 4% or less. Law schools are about 7%, even at top ones like Harvard Law or Stanford Law. And Pharmacy PharmD programs are about 15% at top ones like Michigan (4th in nation). Some one explain this to me[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]
