Is the graduate school supposed to pay for you to attend?

I have heard people say that if the graduate school is not paying for you to come then something is wrong. Does it depend on the school, or major, or something else? I don't understand how this works or what it really means. #psychology #graduate-school #clinical-psychology...

Under what category would psychology or clinical psychology be considered in?

I was looking on LinkedIn and I couldn't decide or figure out what industry psychology or any occupation related to it falls under. I was guessing human resources but I haven't received any good recommendations so I feel like it's wrong. #psychology #human-resources #clinical-psychology...

Some tips on balancing college, work, and other aspects of your life?

I'm 20 and have been enrolled in community college since I was 16. It's been a roller-coaster as far as my academic performance; I've done well in many classes and failed just as many. I think the biggest factor of my failures is my tendency to procrastinate when I get overwhelmed or stressed....

What do you do if you're a senior in college and you still don't know what you want to do with your degree?

Does a psychology major absolutely have to do something in research or work on an experiment before moving on to graduate school?

I've heard my professors say things about doing research or getting involved with a professor who is doing research. I want to know if it is a requirement before I can graduate; does it depend on what my interests are; or is it an option? #psychology...
