Archived Ad: Psych major seeks grad school, gap year advice

I am a rising senior studying Psychology at Brandeis, hoping to do clinical work someday. I would like to talk to someone about the process of applying to a graduate program for Psychology, taking the GREs, whether I should first pursue a master’s and then a doctoral degree, and anyone who has gotten a master’s degree in Psychology at Brandeis. I am very confused about this whole process and any insight would be helpful! I would love to talk to anyone who has pursued a PsyD and what their path was to graduate school. I am considering taking the GREs this fall and applying to grad school, but possibly taking a year or two off before going. Any advice on jobs I could get in between college and grad school would be excellent, or just hearing about your own personal path. Thank you!
