dc.description.abstractResearch examining applicants’ experiences using professional psychology training program web sites is scarce at best. This study used an interpretivist-constructivist paradigm, grounded theory methodology, and interpretive and constant comparison analysis to develop a model of the process applicants undergo when applying to Counseling Psychology programs through the use of program web pages. Derived from applicants’ experiences, the model suggests that applicants in this study used the Internet as a primary means for researching programs, deciding on the programs where they would apply, and obtaining application instructions; yet, applicants based their final decision about which program to attend on their interview experiences. This model has important implications for how training programs design their web sites and recruit students.
