    psychology still remains my fave subject..i couldnt make it to getting it as a major in my grad but did make it to getting it as one of my subjects there...afterwards i thot of doing pg diploma in rehab from amity school of behavioural&allied sciences, but alas! my percentage was a little too sad to take admission..
    but then i dont have too many regrets as psychology's scope is not quite thick in india...but yes the fact is i still love psychology and when i find myself free i get hold of old psycho books n frisk thru them for a while....sadly thats the max i can do! sorry for this boring carried away i guess :p:

    if im not mistaken ur pursuin bsc in clinical psycho or psychiatry or sumthing from philly?

    @vini, doing a bachelor's in psychology and criminal justice, am hoping to do a J.D(law degree)/PhD(in Clinical psychology) simultaneously.

    Here you can. You grades have to be good enough, usually 95%+ and your standardized exam scores have to be in the upper 90th percentiles and you must have three solid reference letters and lots of volunteer work in your field of study. And yeah it's gonna be tough, it's a 7 year minimum program and you can take your BAR exam right after it. Therefore go into a law firm and work with forensic psychologists and criminal law to do research. It's a nice job.

    @zicky, far from it my friend, far from it :)

    quite intricate...and it must be tough and lots of slogging.....but then if this line intrigues u and it has good scope then no probs! hmm..for nearly a decade u'd be buried in!

    i guess, clinical psycho wouldnt be much tough n time taking in comparison wid criminal law...if i were "you" then i'd go for former
