Abstract

Surveyed 202 PhD psychology graduates to determine present location, activities, and reactions about their college experience. Except for complaints of lower salaries and expressions of greater dissatisfaction, the replies of the 32 female respondents were quite similar to those of the 144 males. The more satisfied graduates tended to have lower undergraduate GPAs and lower Quantitative Graduate Record Examination scores. A few of the more recent clinical psychology graduates reported some specific dissatisfactions: They viewed their present jobs as less secure and more poorly paid than did the satisfied graduates. However, reported levels of remuneration did not reflect these differences. (2 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
