Hey. It's grad school planning time for Maximum P. (counseling psychology/mental health; hopefully with a concentration in existential/phenomenological, holistic, transpersonal, or logothery-based counseling) and I was hoping maybe there was some people who could shed some light on the following schools and/or communities surrounding them. If you know anything about them, please share! I'm <i>not</i> trying to hear popular prejudices like "North Dakota is boring and cold" - but all genuine opinions are welcome.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks.<br><br><br><br>
P.S. If you're wondering, I expect that my recent "issues" were an anxiety thing. I am going to do some testing to see if there really are any disorders present, but either way, I'm regaining focus, and that is helping a lot. Thanks for all of your kind words <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/beer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":beer:"><br><br><br><br>

I'm starting to plan for graduate school in psychology as well. I've been looking at grad programs in Educational Psych and School Psych Primarily, with a few clinical programs and health programs thrown in there. Since I'm a research freak, I have a whole ton of website addresses talking about grad school rankings, and articles for getting in, and how to pick one that is right for you. I'll give you some samples of the ones I frequent:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.gradschools.com" target="_blank">www.gradschools.com</a><br><br><a href="http://psych.fullerton.edu/psych466/lbrandt/psych.html#Section1" target="_blank">http://psych.fullerton.edu/psych466/....html#Section1</a><br><br><a href="http://www.pdx.edu/" target="_blank">http://www.pdx.edu/</a><br><br><a href="http://www.psychgrad.org/" target="_blank">http://www.psychgrad.org/</a><br><br><a href="http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Flats/5353/classes/graduatestudy.html" target="_blank">http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/F...uatestudy.html</a><br><br><a href="http://www.psychwww.com/resource/deptlist.htm" target="_blank">http://www.psychwww.com/resource/deptlist.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
Also, go to the library and check out a book called Insider's Guide to Graduate Programs in Clinical and Counseling Psychology. It's a big Yellow manual that basically holds your hand through the process. It's by Tracy J. Mayne, John C. Norcross and Michael A. Sayette.<br><br><br><br>
let me know of your progress, i'm really interested! I'm trying to widdle my list down to a sizeable number as well.

HA! That's funny... I felt guilty about abusing Barne's and the Library so I just bought that book last week. Although it's a PhD-program book, the info is indeed helpful. I'm going to get a masters, licensure, and then think about PhD work...<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for the links!!! besides gradschools.com, I think those links are all new to me. Rock on!<br><br><br><br>
I'd definitely enjoy comparing notes!

I have been thinking that I should get serious about possibly going to grad school for psych as well. I am in limbo between midwifery school or a psych grad program.. hmm not sure what I will do???<br><br><br><br>
I have been considering doing a program close to here because it has more credit hours and will qualify me for the licensure board exam.. so in theory I can stop at the end of my masters and still have the ability to practice at the same level of someone who has received a doctorate in psychology. i had thought i would practice courtroom mediation, but not so sure now.<br><br><br><br>
anyway good luck!
