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.

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
