  5. Hey everyone! I'm in close contact with my advisor who has taught courses in my universities school psychology program (although she is faculty in a different program within the department) She helped me develop a list of interview questions and things to think about prior to interview season. It's a little long, and sometimes redundant but I figured I would share it with fellow applicants who are just as excited as me. I have attached the word doc to this reply. I hope it helps!

  6. Keep in mind that more applicants doesn’t necessarily mean more competitive applications! I’ve heard from profs that often times nearly half of applicants don’t meet minimum criteria. I know the large number of applications is concerning, but don’t forget that it doesn’t take away from your level of competitiveness, or all the hard work that you have put in! University of Ottawa doesn’t require the GRE!

  9. I received multiple interviews last year to places where I didn't have any "pre-interview". People talk about these as though they're the end all be all, but I've heard that most profs actually avoid them in the effort of being fair to all applicants. That, or they offer the pre-application interview to everyone.

  12. HI everyone! I got an email letting me know that I'm not invited to second round, but, I was also told that they were impressed with my application and interview, think I'm a strong candidate, and that I'm still being considered for admission. I thought that only people who get invited to second round are offered admission because second round is their interview day? How do you think I should interpret this? Is there a hidden waitlist or something, or was this just a super nice rejection? 😂 Congratulations to everyone that heard back and were offered a second round invitation! I'm super

  13. I mean, the prof MA have a student in mind but they are required to review the applications. It has happened multiple times that a prof took a student who wasn't the "student they had in mind" because the other person was a stronger applicant! Those things can always change so I wouldn't be tooo worried about it! And yeah, like someone else said, that student may be applying to someone else because if they are working in a lab with a specific professor, that same professor can't write them a reference letter for their own lab (if that makes sense).

  19. I saw from a Reddit thread from someone on an admissions committee said that even if someone has a ton of credentials, it's all about the fit and lab availability, so chances are, it's more so that rather than anything else. (Sorry for the long comment)

  29. NYU program director just told me that Applications are still being read and evaluated. Invitations are sent over a period of time and rejections don’t get sent to well after that.

  31. Not sure if this widely applicable for biomedical sciences programs, especially umbrella programs. Sure, compatibility is a factor, but it's more about compatible with the whole program/department rather than individual PI. While admission to a specific lab does happen, most students are admitted to a program/department. They typically rotate through labs and don't pick an advisor until the end of their first year. So it's hard to imagine that an outstanding applicant would get rejected just because a professor can't take students, unless they somehow make an impression that they're only inter

  35. I feel that they are sending out invites one by one, given the time span of emails received. Also the invitation letter filename has my last name in it, so high chance that someone has to hand-edit that?

  37. Same here, but I noted in my CV that it was under review. I do not really understand how people having 5 first-author publications (provided they are in normal journals) come not to have a PhD degree already😁
