Exclusively focused on psychology programs
Not only are psychology programs among the most selective doctoral programs, but they also vary significantly from school to school. Consequently, few advisors possess the specialized expertise required to guide you through this niche application process. Unlike other services that edit all types of graduate school applications (e.g., law school and medical school), Psychology Doctoral Prep is the ONLY service that caters exclusively to those applying to psychology doctoral programs.
Customized services to suit your exact needs
Dr. Chloe Greenbaum, the founder and director of Psychology Doctoral Prep, accepts a limited number of clients at a time to ensure a highly personalized approach. After your free 15-minute phone consultation, Chloe will work with you to formulate an individualized strategy that incorporates your preferences, timeline, and goals. Unlike other advising services that only offer large packages, Psychology Doctoral Prep allows you to mix and match services to fulfill your specific needs.
Support provided at your convenience
Psychology Doctoral Prep is based in Cambridge, MA, but all services are offered via phone, Skype/FaceTime, and e-mail, and calls can be coordinated around your schedule and time zone (evening and weekend times are available). Efficient work and rapid turnaround of materials are guaranteed. Are you concerned that you're behind schedule with your applications? No problem! Expedited services are available to make sure you meet your deadlines without incurring excessive stress.
