Goal Statement:

        Going into my senior year at the University of Florida, I am more inspired and

interested in pursuing a master degree in psychology. 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.
