Editorial Reviews


"A very readable and useable book that provides students with a world of information about graduate school, the graduate school application process, and surviving/thriving as a graduate student. This book’s unique format and readability will take much of the fear and intimidation out of the application process and place this volume in a category by itself." Steve Davis, Texas Wesleyan University

"This book is a wonderful asset for any student interested in Psychology. It anticipates and answers students’ questions, including ones they may have not even known to ask. Kudos to the authors!" Susan Burns, Morningside College

"Masterfully written and easy to read manual that is almost essential for any undergraduate looking to begin a career in experimental or clinical psychology."
Canadian Psychology

“This was an extremely easy book to read…an invaluable tool for the aspiring graduate student. I would certainly recommend it to any student…”

From the Back Cover

The second edition of this highly successful book answers the “how to” questions that students always ask when applying for graduate study and helps students make informed and intelligent choices at critical points in the process. Each of the eight chapters features a series of specific questions and detailed answers about key elements of the application process – from getting started, choosing a program, taking the GRE and applying, to making a good impression at the interview and surviving the first year. Additional practical tools provided in the Appendices and elsewhere include:

  • a timetable for completing study preparation
  • descriptions of the different concentrations of psychology in graduate school
  • a glossary of graduate school jargon
  • outlines for preparing a vita and sample vita
  • three sample letters of intent

This is a resource devoted to important, commonly asked questions and concise, honest answers that bring students up to speed on the process of applying for graduate study.

Format: Paperback
I just finished the application process for PhD programs and I read through this book afterward. It has good info although I feel that the book put out by APA is more informative (Getting In: A Step-by-Step Plan for Gaining Admission to Graduate School in Psychology).
