Psychological Sciences Graduate Program Questions
I am interested in pursuing a graduate degree/eventual PHD in Psychological Sciences from UT Dallas. I have a 3.75 GPA, with a 3.9 in psychology and child development classes. I hope to get my general GPA up to a 3.8 before graduating in May. I am also taking the GRE in November and have some professors and psychology club organization mentors in mind to give me letters of recommendation.
How competitive is the PHD program and the Master's program? I worry that my lack of actual research in a real lab will hinder me. I participated in the Be Project, which studies dating violence and does activities around campus to raise awareness about the subject, but I'm not sure if that's good enough.
Any advice or anything else that you know about the program would be helpful.
