Yep, I am.

Clinical psychology is really competitive here as well. I think I'm about halfway to having a decent shot at acceptance - I nearly exhausted myself by taking on all the extra research opportunities I could get at uni, but it really paid off in the long run.

Yeah I imagine it would be since it is a very popular major. It is good though that you managed to get halfway there and wish you the best of luck getting into grad school.

I wish I could've taken full advantage of research opportunities at my uni if only (a) I didn't find out about them late in my academic career, (b) their hours didn't conflict with my work schedule, and (c) I have less than a year to finish and they require a two year commitment. So I'm looking at other opportunities right now. :(

Oh, believe me, I have had plenty of those experiences too. I particularly hate the fabulous research project that sounds *so right* for you, which you find out about two days before application deadline.

So much pressure. I swear to god my second year studentship panned out like the plot of Black Swan, complete with a hot but bullying mentor who tried to "bring out my potential" with mind games that bordered on psychological warfare. Looking back on it, I'm sure my stupid crush on him was actually a form of Stockholm Syndrome. :D
