The GPA is great but the GREs are a little on the weakish side. Do you want clinical or experimental psych for your PhD? That matters … clinical is more difficult to get into. You need to have a major meeting with your MS advisors (even if by telephone) to talk this out and get their opinions.

It also depends on what you want to do your research in. If it is a more popular area and more students apply to the program you are looking at, you are going to have to beef up your scores a bit. If there isn’t as much competition you have a better chance.

I always tell people to meet the professors of the program and try to volunteer or work in their labs if they can. This gives you a huge advantage. Also try to make sure you are working in or volunteering in the field you want to study – it looks great to have actually experience (outside of research and a lab) when you apply!
