In just a few quick years at UF I have learned and gained so much regarding both psychology and general academics, and I could not be more excited about psychology. Because of the different opportunities I have had, along with the classes I have taken, I believe that I am a wonderful candidate for the masters program at Northeastern University. I will be graduating in the winter of 2009 (one semester early), and I plan to attend graduate school shortly after. I currently hold a 3.75 GPA, and am majoring in psychology with a minor in education. I am passionate about both fields, and I hope to incorporate both of these passions in my future career. In my short time at the University of Florida I have already become much more familiar with psychology and all that it surrounds. As of the Fall 2008 semester, I have become involved with Dr. Vollmer’s Applied Behavioral Analysis lab. As an undergraduate research assistant, I have learned endless information about Applied Behavioral Analysis, psychology research, running functional analysis, and psychology related computer software. This experience has been an amazing opportunity for me to gain hands-on access to the different subsets of psychology. I have also become a reliable date collector through this process. My passion for psychology began when I started high school. I realized how much I enjoyed talking to people, and how different ways of communication and understanding different perspectives can change the way people think, act, and understand. I realized I had good listening and interpersonal skills, and I received constant feedback consistent with that realization. I love learning about psychology, and I consistently enjoy the work I do, the classes I take, and the new knowledge I gain. I am always engaged and interested in what I am learning, and that is how I know psychology is the perfect field for me. My career goal is to be a counseling psychologist in a treatment center, a private practice, or a school. I know I want to receive my masters in counseling psychology. I am still unsure as to what exact career I will try to pursue. I am willing to push myself in whatever capacity necessary to achieve my goal of becoming a counseling psychologist. There is nothing more I want than to be able to work in this field. I am now preparing to take my GRE. I also plan to get more involved in other aspects of psychology before I graduate from UF. I find that every psychology endeavor I have become involved in has not only been successful, but it has made me more excited about the field. I think that my academic success as an undergraduate, and my experience in Applied Behavioral Analysis makes me a premium candidate to receive my masters at Northeastern University. I believe I would bring a lot of knowledge to the Applied Behavioral Analysis, Counseling Psychology, and Education Psychology programs. I know I will excel in any of these programs, and I will bring my best effort forth once admitted to achieve my goal as a counseling psychologist.
