Can one go directly from getting a Bachelor of Science in Psychology to a Psy.D. program?0Julia Miller2012-11-06 02:46:41
I'm an awesome student and if I do as well in college as I'm doing now in high school I'm sure my GPA will be 3.75 or higher. Could I go from a B.S. directly to a Psy.D. program just with a high GPA, or would I probably still have no chance?[View Answers]
What classes do I have to take in college if I'm majoring in psychology?0Will Coppock2012-11-06 02:42:53
I want to know what are the classes if I'm going to major in psychology and if it's possible to major in one thing and get a BA degree and then in graduate school, you major in something else and get a masters or PHD, basically, can you have a completely different major in graduate school then you had in undergrad school?[View Answers]
Failed at school but want to go to college?0Elain2012-11-06 02:34:08
I pretty much slept my way through school (since elementary), and just barely graduated H.S. with a 2.5 GPA. That was three years ago. I live with my sister, so since then I've pretty much just gotten by through babysitting jobs and commissioning artwork. I literally do nothing else but read (fiction), babysit, paint, and surf the web. Needless to say, my brain has turned to GOO. I have little to no conversational skills, I'm awkward as heck, I'm godawful when it comes to critical thinking and problem solving, and I'm just not very smart. That said, I'm planning to go back to school. I want to do something with my life. Be someone. I'm currently studying my butt off to pass the entrance exams to BMCC (community college). The plan is to get an AS in Human Services (while doing volunteer work to build credentials), transfer to a 4-year school where I can complete a BA degree in Human Services while minoring in either Sociology, Psychology, or Spanish. IF things go well, I'd like to go to Graduate School to get my Master's of Social Work (MSW). The problem? I'm terrified out of my mind. I've never really put any effort into anything like this before, and the potentiality of failing (because I'm really just not very smart or social) is scaring the crud out of me. I think a career in Human Services is something I might really like, but even that has it's downsides. The main one being that a BA in that field is the equivalent to a HS diploma and if I ever want to do have a steady income I'd need to get my MSW. And I don't even know if I'll be able to handle community college. I've always hated school, and that's the main reason why I just never did well. I'm having to re-learn math I did in elementary school, I'm that out of practice. I don't even know what kind of answers to expect here. Words of wisdom and advice would be helpful. Tips and suggestions to succeed in college (or in my designated major/career) would be amazing. Heck, I'd even take words of reassurance at this point. I'm pulling my hair out here. Thanks in advance![View Answers]
I'm an English major, should I minor in Psychology or Film Studies?0Guadelupe2012-11-06 02:26:40
I am an English Creative Writing major. Honestly, I am unsure of what I will do after I graduate college, but I do know that Creative Writing is my strength. I need a minor in order to graduate and cannot decide between Psychology or Film Studies? Psychology is my 2nd best strength but Communications/Media I'm not so good in, but would minoring in Film Studies be more beneficial than Psychology? I may work for advertising, magazines, or the media so Film Studies would be beneficial, but even if I minored in Psychology would that still be okay? (I am leaning more towards a Psychology minor but I am unsure if that would be beneficial?) Thank you for the answers![View Answers]
What degree is best for preparing to go into Neuroscience?0 Ya Love Tang screen name -2012-11-06 02:01:52
I an currently enrolled at a community college. I was suggested by someone to get my A.S. degree, since I want to transfer to a 4 year college and study Neuroscience. But I am finding myself liking my Psychology and Philosophy classes more and I am thinking of going for my A.A. instead.

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]

I failed my exam...... I feel my four years' effort gone?0lore2012-11-06 01:41:08
I am an Asian student in the United States, currently a senior in a university majoring in Psychology. I am currently have 3.9 GPA, and got A on all my major classes. Today, it's my first time to fail the test, it's biological psychology. I studied extremely hard, and slept at 2 or 3 am. However, I failed the test. I cannot accept the result. I am applying for graduate school right now, the biological psychology may destroy my GPA, and seriously influence my application. If I cannot admitted by graduate program, it's useless to get a high GPA. All my motivation for study is to go to graduate program. Because English is not my native language, I have to spend more time to study in order to catch up with American students. I gave up my hobbies, I don't party, Don't watch TV. No dating. If I cannot be admitted by graduate program, I have to return back to my home country after finishing my college, and I will be treated as a loser.......because I cannot get a good job based on a Bachelor's degree in China. I just think that if I fail to go to graduate school, the life is meaningless. I have decided that I won't go to graduation ceremony unless I can be admitted by graduate program. I am a guy, but I don't know why I cried a lot, It's so stressful in college. so lonely live by myself. If I fail, I cannot accept the result......[View Answers]
Can you get a second bachelors (undergrad) degree at PSU?0annika2012-11-06 01:39:28
My current major is Psychology, and I have to stick with it. The classes are at a satellite campus and I need to keep working where I am. I have an interest in Japanese however, and after I get this degree I would like that one. By then I will be able to go to State College and study there. Thing is, I don't really want to do grad school. Is it possible to get a second BA at this school or will I have to look somewhere else?[View Answers]
Should I withdrawal from Physics?0Morgan Rosell2012-11-06 01:37:22
I am a junior at a state university and I am currently in Physics I, which is **NOT** required by my major (Psychology). I had elected to take it because I was considering applying to medical school, but I have since decided against taking the MCAT and such, and I've begun to focus on working towards being admitted to a PhD program. I recently got a 53 on a Physics exam (I was *so* sure I got a 100%, but the pr**ck TA who graded it gave me 2/25 for one problem because I wrote 15sin40 was 9.6 instead of 9.641) The outlook is not looking good in Physics. If I got a 100% on the final and all other exams, I'd scoot out of there with a grade in the high 80s, but let's face it --- I'm not a quantitative person, and I'm not going to get past a B+ on any physics or calculus exam. My current GPA is 3.7. My question is, should I withdrawal from this elective in order to protect my grade, fearing what graduate school admissions will say, or stay and work my TAIL off with the possibility of destroying my GPA .[View Answers]
Apply for graduate school?0brainywaney2012-11-06 01:36:34
I am 23 years old. I am graduating next semester with a bachelors in psychology and human services with a minor in public administration. I have a 3.8 GPA. I would love to get my master or even doctorates in Psychology (clinical or counseling). I have such a passion for psychology! However, the graduate program I am applying for only accept about 4-8 student in a year. I have no working experience in the field of psychology because my husband and I decided I should stay home with my 2 young children as much as possible before I begin working. As an adolescent I did motivational speaking throughout our state high schools and middle schools, but thats all the experience I have. I have not taken the GRE yet, but I have been studying. Between the GRE, GRE subject test, and application fees I will be spending a good chunk of money to apply and we are struggling financially at this time already. The application also asks what clubs or organizations I have been involved which is none since high school and it also ask what awards I have been given. I have been on the deans list several times, but other than that - none. It asks what research I have completed and other than behavioral statistics course I and II - none. I am worried because of my lack of experience that I will not get accepted. Should I try now or wait until I graduate and find a job to use as experience?[View Answers]
College Major Question!?0XOXO2012-11-06 01:35:30
I"m indecisive about my college major, I'm going to be a high school senior this upcoming year and I have two potential majors in mind. They are advertising and psychologoy. I"m wondering, since most people say that you can't really do anything with a degree in psychology..is it even worth it? Personally I think it's pretty interesting, but I don't want to major in something and regret it 'cuz I can't find any proper work. Advertising I'm a bit iffy about...not too sure about how stable a job that can be. I was thinking about majoring in BOTH advertising and psychology, is that possible? Would that even make a good combo? Good input please, I don't need snide comments my 14yr old brother can give me.[View Answers]
Which BS degree is better?0Sheretha2012-11-06 01:30:21
B.S. in Psychology or B.S. in Psychology: Clinical Practices I do NOT PLAN on going to graduate school. I am studying psychology because it's the most facinating thing to me, but I am not an academic person. I have never been good at school, it's just not meant for me, but I do want at least a B.S. degree (I'm currently a sophomore in college- at the end of our sophomore year we can choose to complete the Clinical Practices track or the general psych track). Which is more beneficial? If you are going to tell me how useless psychology is, I will report you. Do not waste my time, I am majoring in something I love, which is what I should do.[View Answers]

What courses do I need to become a Nurse Practitioner?0opg2012-11-06 01:24:53
I'm currently pre-med student majoring in Psychology but am considering being a Nurse Practitioner instead. I know that you need a BS in nursing to more forward to become an NP but what I'm wondering is if there are accelerated programs if you already have a Bachelor's Degree. (in my case, a BS in Psychology) and I would have already taken my MCAT so would that be looked at as an alternative to the GRE??[View Answers]

Are on-line college courses just a joke?0Dav2012-11-06 00:53:03
I'm currently employed full time in a job that I love. However, I am interested in looking at more options and maybe going back to school. I don't have the option of an actual university so I'm looking at community colleges in the area and online courses as well. I have two problems, are the online courses credible or just a joke, and two, I am having difficulty finding something I want to do. I'm HORRIBLE with math and numbers, so anything that has a core in that I know I'll be horrible at. I was interested in Psychology but realized that unless I get my masters it's pretty useless. HELP![View Answers]
How do I know if college is right for me?0Daca2012-11-06 00:49:41
I'm a junior in high school, and everyone is telling me that I need to be thinking about college. Whenever I think of my college, my stomach starts hurting and I feel panicky. I am not good at anything academically; I have always been an average student. English has always been my best subject but honestly I am only average at that and it doesn't interest me. I failed math this year (but I dropped it and the grade), and I'm failing science. I try really hard. I study two hours a night, do the homework, and I have a tutor 3 times a week! Nothing helps though. My brain is somehow utterly incapable of taking in the information!! I have always hated school, but I wonder if college would be different. I don't know what my strengths are or what I like to do so I do not know what I would study in college. My mom says she thinks I should do a psychology major but I don't know. I have always loved travelling and I really love french/france (I have been studying french since i was 12, and have gone to france twice). I have no work experience (but ton of volunteer work), so I think it would be kind of hard for me to get a job if I took a gap year. What do you think I should do? Should I go to college? If so, where?[View Answers]
