How competitive is the Ph.D in Clinical Psychology at USUHS?
I am considering applying to their program. However, I was dismissed from another Master’s program for failing a class after misuderstanding a deadline. Aside from this F, I have a 3.85 GPA from during this Master’s. Any information you have on the competitiveness of USUHS is appreciated.

Answer by Proforma
Expect competition for any doc program in the U.S. Thats why people apply for 5 to 10 schools because you never know who will accept you. I have a BA in psych and was going to apply to the doc program, but I went to a book called the Occupational Outlook Handbook and found out that jobs would be tight going forward. I really wanted to do therapy, so my research reveled that an MSW would have about 10 times the job openings. I made that decision over 30 yrs. ago and have always been working as a therapist since. GOOD LUCK
