Psychology PhD programs are intensely competitive to get into, with some fields of psychology boasting lower admissions rates than top medical schools.
Yet within psychology, where you get your doctoral degree matters. A lot.
Graduates from top psychology PhD programs get their pick of internships, of research positions, of professorships, and of grants.
That's why your admissions plan to psychology PhD programs is so critical.
If you plan your strategy out carefully, if you prepare yourself to be the best candidate, if you craft your admissions package to each program strategically, you can maximize your chances of receiving acceptance letters to the best psychology programs in your field.
And if you spend the time and effort now making sure you are the best psychology applicant possible, you will be grateful you did for the rest of your career.
This guide was written by a former psychology PhD program applicant, just like you will be. When I was applying I cobbled together the best advice I could get from professors, graduate students, admissions representatives, and scattered information in published application and essays books.
But there were so many inaccuracies, rumors stated as facts, and out-of-date techniques mixed in with the nuggets of wisdom.
So I put it all together in one place so that I could easily reference it. And it worked!
I was accepted to 10 out of the 12 programs I applied for (all top 20 schools in my field), including the program that is ranked #1 in my field.
So now I'm sharing my action plan with you, from beginning to end.
I can't guarantee that you will be accepted – no one can.
But by applying the techniques in this step-by-step manual, I truly believe you will have the greatest success applying to top programs than you would have had using any other technique.
I will teach you to be practical in your applications, and I will also tell you to reach for the stars.
Where you are accepted may surprise you (in a wonderful way). I know it did me.
