After graduating from the University of the Cumberlands with a bachelor's degree in psychology, I was accepted into the Master's program at the University of Kentucky.  Coming from a small, private undergraduate program, I worried about graduate coursework and feared writing papers for UK.  To my delight, my first 20 page paper was returned with a note from the most difficult professor in the program which read: "96% - you're undergraduate program must have prepared you extensively for this type of coursework."  Although lacking a compliment, I was so grateful to have completed my bachelor's in psychology from the University of the Cumberlands.  I now have a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kentucky and am pursuing an Educational Specialist degree (Licensed Psychological Associate).  The research skills I learned at the University of the Cumberlands has led to a resume with 1 – state poster presentation (KPA, 2009), 1 – national poster presentation (APA, 2011), and 1 – national symposium presentation (APA, 2011).  I am in my third year of graduate school and have been offered a spot in two different doctoral programs, one of which is Counseling Psychology.  Yes… hard work ethic, determination, support, and multiple other motivational factors play a role in accomplishments, but without the University of the Cumberlands, I would not be in such a great position as I am in today.
