Hi there. I'm actually starting at UMass Boston for school psych in the fall. I'm working 20 hours/wk in a school and I have an assistantship with one of the professors at UMass. I'm also taking 4 courses. I work better when I'm busy and really scheduled so working more hours works for me. Some people just need to have more time without working.

Its nice to know there are other UMass Boston school psychers on LJ!!

During undergrad, I tutored and was a TA so I was always involved with academics. Also, I started volunteering at a hospital for certain research projects that are related to school psych (ADHD, dyslexia, other social emotional problems, etc). I also worked and still work at a middle school as an aide. Any experience with research and working with children is good experience. If you have the option to learn how to administer and score assessments, take that opportunity. It will greatly help you in graduate school.

I hope this helps!
