Should I apply to graduate school this cycle?
Should I apply to P.h.D programs this year ?
I came into undergrad with an associate I earned in high school, so I was quite fast tracked. I started Fall '22 and I will be graduating Fall '23. I am wanting to pursue a career as a psychologist, but I am unsure if I should apply yet. I have a 3.8 GPA and have taken research courses and the basic psychology courses required for most programs.
1. How can I start to gain practical and professional experience? Should I take a semester or two off to work in this field to ensure this is the direction I want to go?
2. Am I feeling burned out from the time I've spent thus far in academia
3. What are the requirements to jump into and practice in my field.
4. What networking have I done to learn more about the field of psychology?
Psychology is such a great field that can carry you across many different professional industries. Best of luck!
