The decision process comes down to your priorities. Think of what is important to you when looking for the ideal grad school. it is location? Price? School size? Curriculum? Accreditation? The list goes on and on.

Once you know what you want, find schools that match or have commonalities with your ideal. Be sure to get to know the schools well. Read up on them, talk with students in the program, meet profs, sit in on a class if you can. Can you see yourself being happy and successful there?

It's a great deal of work but you will be happy once you've found your place.

A good place to start is by taking an inventory of your interests-- are there special types of patients you'd like to work with? Are you more interested in research? Does the idea of research sound horrible? What length of schooling do you think you're willing to commit to? If you're currently in undergrad or finished, what is/was your GPA? Some types of programs are highly competitive (even more than most medical schools), while others are more liberal about their requirements.

That information will help you make some decisions. I'd also highly recommend getting some volunteer experience to help guide your decisions-- get your feet a bit wet and see if you like it!

The APA website (www.apa.org) has a wealth of information on educational and career options. Good luck!
