   schema:description "Applying to Graduate School in Psychology is a landmark book of immense value for students contemplating advanced training in various fields of psychology as well as for their instructors and advisors. The student editors and chapter authors - diverse in their backgrounds, circumstances, and career goals - offer in-depth practical advice, tested strategies, and useful resources for mastering both the obvious and the hidden challenges of applying to graduate school. The accompanying narratives by eminent psychologists are equally engaging and reveal their passion for psychology and wisdom about the application process. Most important, this breakthrough volume is like no other in that it demystifies the application process from start to finish by closing the information gap with what students really want-and need-to know."@en ;
