Those of you who are working in the field... I need some urgent advice please! I am completing my MA in Counseling in a few weeks and will be going on to get my PhD in clinical psychology. I have applied to 20 programs and so far have only heard back from one: California School of Professional Psychology/Alliant University. I am wondering what your opinion is on professional schools. I am interviewing there tomorrow, but I am unsure if graduating from a professional school with hold me back. I have heard it is harder for professional school graduates to get teaching positions... is this true? I don't see myself in private practice... just not something I am interested in. I would really like to work in clinical forensic psychology. So if I go to CSPP, my emphasis will be forensics and I see myself getting a government job working in prisons, courts, etc.. and I would also like to teach part-time at a university. Does anybody know graduates from professional schools? Where are they career-wise, any hurdles they had to overcome because of where they went to school? If I don't get into any other universities, should I accept CSPP/Alliant? Or should I take a couple of years off to get more experience and apply again?
