Can you still apply to grad school if you don't meet the GPA requirement?2gyla2017-05-02 00:04:32
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]

Please explain why there are 1-2 pre-req's for a course in graduate programs?1Kieran McCamment2016-07-13 23:32:36
I have a bachelor's in education. I was recently accepted to PENN State for my master's. My initial major was going to be "community and economic development", as I wanted to branch out of education due to the lack of teaching jobs in my area. The pre-req's were ridiculous and I had none of them in my undergrad work. So I looked at getting a master's in my field; education. What I don't understand is (example) say there's a course for "Educational psychology". It has a pre-req of psych 212 (which i never took) and the pre-req for that is psych 100 (which i took). If every class has a pre-req, it will take 5 years for me to get my degree. Why then dont undergrad programs require the classes that will be necessary to further one's education. I just spent 6.5 years in school, I am not about to do that again. It seems like no matter which degree I pick, there appear to be 5-6 extra classes I will need, which will take at least 2 years for me to complete by the time I do take those, then begin the master's. It's like getting another bachelor's degree....crap. :([View Answers]
What's a good college in North Carolina where I can get a masters degree in psychology?1curt2016-07-13 23:22:55
I'm in high school at the moment, and I've been trying to decide what I want to do when I'm out of high school and then what career path I will choose. I really want to be a family and marriage counselor, I live in North Carolina and my dad won't pay for out of state tuition (which I can't blame him for, I'm blessed enough to have a dad that's going to pay for my college in general). But what is a good school that I can get a masters degree for that career?[View Answers]
Speech-language pathology degree?1sharee2016-07-13 23:22:53
I am planning on attending Texas Tech next year and I have my heart set on being a speech-language pathologist. Tech has a masters program for speech pathology, but no bachelors degree in it. The website is very vague on what the prerequisites are for getting my masters in speech pathology, so I was wondering what I should major in. Also, Tech only offers linguistics as a minor, not a major. Would it be ok to major in psychology with a minor in linguistics? I am so confused, please help :) Also, any other information on speech pathology would be greatly appreciated, especially from someone who has hands-on experience.[View Answers]
My Future Career. Help, Please!?1lizbeth2016-07-13 23:22:43
Hello Everyone. My name is Giselle. I am really thinking about what I want to do with my life. I just graduated last year with an Associates Degree by doing PSEO. So I already have a two year degree and just graduated! I am really thinking about what I want to do and I really need help, please! Well, first of all I am really into Acting. If I could, I would be an Actress with a blink of an eye and would be set. And I already know that Im going to be trying acting on the side and trying reallly hard to get a good reputation for Actressing. So hopefully that works out and maybe it will. BUT, if that doesnt work out, I think that I would want to bet my Bachelors Degree in Business, and my Masters is Psychology. Is that possible? Also, If acting again doesn't work, I really would like to either open up my own Pet Store which most likely will fail, or open up a Chain of Taco Bells. That will be expensive though so I deffinately need a side career to get enough money for a Taco Bell. read[View Answers]

What preparations must one take to become a sex crimes detective?0Choudher2012-11-06 07:08:25
I understand that requirements vary from each division, but a general answer will do. As of now I know the generic answer is join the police force and once you become good at what you do you are appointed to take a detective's exam, but I was wondering, how much does a degree help? If I get a master's in criminal justice, a minor in psychology, and serve as a cadet before applying to the academy, will this speed the process of my desire? Any excess information on my inquiry will be greatly appreciated.[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]

Would anyone care to review my personal statement?0toyhier2012-11-06 05:03:22
I want to go to University in September (Anglia Ruskin to be specific, 240 points) and this is my personal statement! I want to do Psychology Bsc (hons). Soooo yeah, this is my first draft, please be as harsh as possible, i want to get it the best it can be! Thank you! x ------ My deep interest in psychological studies sprung from an early age, by reading a range of books, my main influence surprisingly geared towards entertainment. The book in question was “Tricks of the Mind”, authored by Derren Brown. I realise this may seem a bit silly, yet in this book he wrote about the study of the mind, how he took psychology at University and loved it. It also gave me an elemental understanding of basic human behaviour, attachments, rapport and even suggestibility. This whole area seemed like an exciting delve into understanding functions, knowing how we work and what secrets of daily life are revealed through the tangled jungle of the human mind. This has carried on fascinating me through to this day. I believe my life experiences, even at this young age, make me an ideal candidate for a degree, and later on a career in psychology. My previous employment has taught me many skills not only for the course, yet also for life, Discipline, patience and punctuality just to name a few. I started work at the age of 15 in a restaurant and café area at Bewl Water Reservoir, This included working in many roles there, but mostly serving food and handling money at the front of house. This is around the time I started to gain an interest in psychology, I found observing customers behaviour fascinating! I began to read up on human behaviour on the internet in order to see patterns in the customers. My boss here was what you could call… Strict, she would usually manage to fire at least 1 person a fortnight. I managed to stay here for over a year under this management and I consider that a great achievement! My boss eventually got outbid on the lease to the restaurant so I decided to move on. I now work at the supermarket, The Co-operative. I feel my range of employment has taught me many transferable skills to proudly bring into a university lifestyle. working in sociable jobs focused around people, makes me a perfect candidate to study such a people based course, as I have had so much practise dealing with differing situations in differing roles, I very much enjoy getting involved in the schools activities and helping spread a good word. I found myself getting involved in speeches and really enjoyed it, something many have trouble with; I grew to love! I eventually decided to apply to become a prefect at Angley, in order to, not only help the inner school workings, but also the whole reputation around the wider community, which I feel is very important being based in such a rural area of Kent. After my degree, I plan to stay on in full time education and progress to a masters degree, maybe to become a psychology teacher, or simply branch out into a more specific area of expertise, such as an occupational psychologist. The research aspect also looks very appealing, the ability to create world leading data and changing the way human-kind thinks is mindblowing! And with my commitment and passion to everything psychology, I think this is a real-life possibility.[View Answers]

Degree almost coming to an end!!?0byran2012-11-06 04:45:42
I hope someone can help. I am in my third year of my psychology degree and will be finishing in June, but I am afraid for my future. I want to pursue a career in psychology and am considering either going onto do a Masters in health psychology or go on to do a PhD. But first i want to take a year out from studying and get a job as a psychologists/researchers assistant, but the thing is I don't know how to get one of these jobs. In the Psychologist's magazine memorandum section there seems to only a few of these types of jobs available and in most cases they seem to be in an area I am not particulary interested in. How do I find more psychologist/researcher assistant jobs. I have searched the internet with no luck. I would also appreciate some advice from people who are already psychologists - that is, could you tell me about how you came to be where you are - the jobs/training, etc you have done on the way to your current role.[View Answers]

Too many areas of study!?0Lima2012-11-06 03:11:08
Hi, I am 15 years old and just graduated from high school early and am going to start attending a community college, and then a 4 year university, but one of my problems is there is so much stuff that I want to study but I don't want to be in college for 20+ years. Here is the list of all the stuff I am interested in learning and possibly getting a degree in. Political Science Social Science Psychology Philosophy History Geography Anthropology Religion Is there any way I can quadruple major any of these (at the university)? Or do I have to get each degree one by one? I know it's alot but I really am interested in all of this stuff, and would like the bonus of having a degree in it (Bachelors or Masters). So would anyone have any solutions? Should I drop any of them or double, triple, or quadruple major? Are any of them useless or very similar to another? I don't care about having a job in the fields, I just want to learn the stuff.[View Answers]
