“I am writing to thank you for the second time for the remarkable resource your 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

“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 of Psychology, Rutgers University

“I cannot express enough gratitude to you for the Insider's Guide to Graduate Programs in Clinical and Counseling Psychology. 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, 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

“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 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

“Students need to realize that the Insider’s Guide is much more than a shopping list of statistics about programs to be picked up before sending off the first wave of applications. In fact, this is a resource that all students seriously considering careers in professional psychology will find valuable as soon as they declare their major.”--Bryan D. Fantie, PhD, Director of Behavioral Neuroscience, American University

    Interesting look into psychology programs

    The book specifically covers each individual program and some details about it, and is very useful if you are just looking for the right program. The one thing it does not do is give direction, it assumes you have an idea of exactly what you want to do and then gives you some options of programs that will get you there. It's nicely laid out and is probably a lot easier than internet searching for the same information, at least it was for me.

    Written with the serious student in mind

    Plenty of guides have the same information included in this one. However, if you are in the throes of researching specialties or fields of interest, this guide is for you. The book organizes its schools by specialty. For example, if you are looking to focus your research on eating disorders, you don't have to filter through 100 schools to find the 3 most applicable to your interest. This guide lists each specialty and the schools whose labs and research are most applicable. It includes all the other general guidelines and worksheets to gather and organize your personal research into graduate programs in Clinical and Counseling Psychology. Great resource.
