PS on changing career paths - anyone willing to read?
« on: October 02, 2004, 04:25:11 PM »
I'm currently in a clinical psychology Ph.D. program and am applying to law school.  If accepted, I'll leave my Ph.D. program with a masters degree only to pursue a law degree.  I felt it necessary that I address this decision in my PS, but it has been pretty difficult to do.  Anyone willing to give me feedback on my 2-page PS?
Accepted: GULC, Duke, USC, NYU, UPenn, UVA, UMich, Cornell, Notre Dame, Vandy, UChicago
Pending:Columbia
Deferred: HLS

I'd love to read it.  I am switching careers mid-graduate work as well.

I'm in a similar situation, but I'm in the middle of my master's program.  I'll give it a read.

You can always address the issue in an addendum.

psychology shouldn't be too difficult to tie into law.  I was actually thinking about getting my masters or PhD after my JD.  I'd like to help.  You don't have to send the PS to me, but I can give you some ideas.
