Is Dr. Brown accepting students?
Please check back in late summer 2021 to find out if Dr. Molly Brown is reviewing applications for 2022-2023 admission to the Clinical Psychology (Community Track) Ph.D. program at DePaul University. Applicants interested in studying racial and other disparities in homelessness and McNair Scholars (or participants of similar programs) are strongly encouraged to apply!
What is Dr. Brown's contact policy?
In acknowledgment of the complexity and stress of navigating the application process, Dr. Brown is offering transparency in her policy regarding contact with applicants. Dr. Brown works to create an even playing field for applicants, so she will not meet individually with applicants prior to our program’s interview day. Applicants who send inquiries via email will not receive greater consideration for admission than those who do not. Dr. Brown looks forward to reviewing your application!
What makes a strong applicant for Dr. Brown’s research lab?
Dr. Brown reviews applications holistically such that areas of strength in applications may compensate for areas of weakness. Strong applicants typically have a GPA of 3.4 or higher. With the understanding that the GRE is not an equitable representation of students’ capacity to succeed in a doctoral program, Dr. Brown does not use minimum cutoff scores on this metric. Applicants must have research experience. Demonstrated scholarship through conference presentations or publications (including manuscripts in progress) is highly suggested.
