This perennial bestseller, now in its 2002/2003 edition, is the resource that students count on for the most current information on applying to doctoral programs in clinical or counseling psychology. Based on the authors' ongoing research, the Insider's Guide presents up-to-date facts on more than 275 accredited programs in the United States and Canada.

Special features include sample letters and personal statements, an application timeline, worksheets to aid in selecting schools and making informed final decisions, and listings of websites on a variety of topics--from the GREs to financial aid.
