Editorial Reviews

Choice Reviews
"[Helps] students prepare to gain entrance into the two specific subfields of psychology that are popular but extraordinarily competitive. The book is written in a pragmatic, conversational tone that is easy to understand. The advice is realistic, which is important when each year applicants in the triple-digits usually compete for slots in the single-digits. Highly recommended."--Choice Reviews
American Reference Books Annual
"The Insider's Guide focuses on the complete application process with sample documents, worksheets, and timelines. Advice, warnings, and an easy-to-read format give this book an edge over resources providing program descriptions only, such as the American Psychological Association's Graduate Study in Psychology and Peterson's Graduate Programs in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences. The text is supplemented with helpful statistics and the worksheets assist readers in defining the most important criteria for choosing schools."—American Reference Books Annual
From the Publisher
"A 'must read'…. Like many other Directors of Clinical Training, I could continue to pull my hair out over the increased individual inquiries regarding how to get into graduate school, or simply refer each individual to the well-written, fact-based latest edition of the Insider’s Guide."—Sally H. Barlow, PhD, Director of Clinical training, Brigham Young University

"There is a definite need for this book, which improves with every edition. Prospective graduate students will significantly increase their chances of gaining admission to clinical doctoral programs when they use this outstanding guide."—Arnold A. Lazarus, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Rutgers University

"Imagine for a moment, a growing crowd of people who are all attempting to get through doors that are passageways to the careers they desperately want. If you find yourself in this reality that students face in attempting to gain admission to graduate programs in clinical psychology, the Insider’s Guide is a 'must read.'"—C. R. Snyder, PhD, Director of Clinical Psychology, University of Kansas

"The authors have created a valuable guide for applicants. The wealth of practical information and insights gleaned from their research and personal experiences should help applicants make the strongest possible application to the schools of their choice. This well-written, encouraging book will be a great asset for anyone applying to clinical or counseling psychology programs."—Barry A. Hong, PhD, Washington University School of Medicine

"I was lost and confused before I stumbled across this wonderful piece of literature! It answered every question I had, narrowed down my choices. The ranking system was great!"—Lisa Oldfield, clinical psychology applicant

"Your book has helped me immensely. It was fun to read and contained great suggestions and insights that I would have been clueless about. Thank you for providing this resource for students!"—Timothy G. Lock, graduate student

"Your book means so much to me. The Insider’s Guide was the most helpful piece of literature I came across during my years of research into graduate programs. It was almost like a bible to me."—Sharon Lee Hudson, doctoral student

"I bought your book at the suggestion of my undergraduate psychology advisor once I decided to go back to school after spending nearly 10 years in the nonprofit sector. Your book has been extremely helpful and I have used it as my road map in guiding my efforts to set myself up to be successful in applying to schools this year. Thank you for writing this book—I really would not have known how to navigate the process without it."—George Lewis

"I am writing to thank you for the second time for the remarkable resource the Insider’s Guide has been. My girlfriend has just successfully utilized your most recent edition and has been accepted into a clinical PhD program. Great stuff!"—Jason Paris, graduate student

"I cannot express enough gratitude to you for the Insider’s Guide. Your book was the most important resource that I used during my applications to PhD programs in counseling psychology. It is exceptionally written, incredibly applicable, and, most important, it is clear, concise, and pragmatic. Thank you so much for remembering how stressful and chaotic the application process can be, as well as being empathic enough to pull together a resource that I am sure has helped so many graduate students."—Kimberly Tran, doctoral student

"I love your book! This book is excellent for focusing upon specific areas of interest as well as going about the process in a systematic, logical manner. Great job!"—Helen Rowan, MA, clinician returning for her doctorate  

"Your book is simply a godsend! I found it to be instructive, informative, and a great comfort."—Emily M. Douglas, psychology undergraduate
