@schizometric & @lumscjhu Congratulations to you both on your interviews from UMB! I've been checking the TGC results page and it looks like you're the only two who have heard back so far, would you mind PMing me your POIs? UMB's my top school and now I'm really nervous that I won't even be interviewed. ; A ; Also, your GRE/GPA stats if you wouldn't mind!! 

Also, for anyone else who is concerned about their app at UMass Boston, the semester here starts back up on the 24th of this month, but admins & staff are usually still working even though it's winter break. So it might be worth a shot to call/email now rather than waiting.

I am still waiting to hear back from Georgia State as well! I checked my application status and it said, "No Decision Made Yet," so I'm not sure!

Hey splind01! I have't heard anything from UNT. I know for sure that I won't be getting an interview offer because of my lack of prerequisites (made an error in my application.) I'm not sure if we were supposed to be notified by today only if we had an invite, or for either decision. Either way, good luck and I hope they are just late contacting you!

I was contacted to interview for counseling psych at UNT about 3 weeks ago... I hope they are getting to you still!

Does anyone know if University of Miami or University of Tennessee is done handing out invitations to interview? Although Id be devastated if they were, I rather eliminate some anxiety by knowing hahah

Good afternoon everyone, wondering if anyone applied to the University of Louisville.  I applied to the Counseling Psychology program and have yet to hear back.  Good luck everyone! :)

I see on the results page that an interview invitation went out to someone on Jan 7th. Don't know if they are still going out or not. Good luck!

I saw that but the dates are funky... I don't know that it is a reliable report.  Plus it sounds like clinical got notices around the same time.

@dancedementia   I'm applying to 10 masters programs, all out of state, one of which is University of Houston's M.Ed in Counseling! It's awesome because the Ph.D is in the same department and really reasonably priced! Also, it would be great to smooze into the Ph.D program!! That's my plan. I'm curious how difficult it is to get into the program?!

I wish I could tell you! There are some stats on Peterson's (see here) but it includes all of the department, not just the M.Ed Counseling program. Fingers crossed for both of us, maybe we'll be classmates next fall :)

Does anyone have a reliable list that ranks/displays the top counseling psych programs? I know rankings are pretty subjective and not always helpful, but I'm trying to get a sense of which programs are the best in the United States in terms of quality of research and clinical work/supervision. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

For the person that posted the Northeastern invite, who did the email come from? If it was your POI, would you allow me to email you my POI and confirm whether they are the same?

Don't worry about it! I assumed it was January. I'm pretty sure my application is in limbo due to some transcript issues. I just wanted to make sure when the interview was so if for some miracle someone contacted me, I would be a bit prepared. But since it's the 30th, I wouldn't be able to make it anyway since I already confirmed an interview with another school.
