  1. Judging by the above posts and my own experiences, I'd say that the confidence interval around the components of an interview is really large. For example, while reading the bios and work of every professor in the field may seem like overkill, it definitely helps. In one of my interviews (with my POI) he would mention names of other faculty at that institution and talk about them briefly. I got the feeling that he expected me to know at least what they were generally working on as he wanted feedback on whether I was also interested in them. The only reason for this that I could come up wi
  2. Sort of mirroring the previous posts, I'm in social psych and have yet to ever really use qualitative data (if only as a manipulation check). I would follow the comment about doing the research you want to and then having that program of research decide for you if you should be doing qualitative or quantitative data collection/analysis. So, my suggestion then, is to look up a few studies doing the research that interests you and looking at their methods. Also, play close attention to what universities and what programs of psych the authors are in. More than likely, those are the programs
  3. The person who posted the Social Psych interview at U of Minnesota, could you please PM me your POI? Thanks!
  4. It is exciting! I'll be doing some networking while there with some prospective graduate programs. Hopefully talking to some of the grad students will give me a better perspective of which program I will fit in better. I won't be doing any of the grad events this time around (I'm an undergrad), but they seem interesting. And good luck on your PhD interview! I hope it goes well.
  5. Does this conference you are going to happen to be SPSP? I don't know of any other conference next week Edit: Never mind. I found one for the International Neuropsychological Society.
  6. I think I've seen things posted about Rochester, but only one for CUNY social psych and nothing for UCONN. Specifically, I think UCONN is still holding out for the time. So maybe don't freak out yet And although I've had several freak out moments, I'm not sure there is a "correct" time to freak out haha Good luck
  7. When I went to SPSP last year I began to wonder how many undergraduates actually go. My perception of age is probably really off, but all the students I saw typically looked like grad students I was sort of wondering, is anyone going to this years SPSP in Austin?
  8. Villanova has a March 1st deadline and DePaul has a May 1st app deadline. Those are the only two I can think of that didn't have a January or sooner deadline. Somewhere in the Fall Application thread there is a list of schools whose deadlines hadn't passed, but that was in January. Still, might be worth a look.
  9. To the person in the Results section applying to Social, Cognitive, Neuro at UT El Paso, can you please PM me your POI? Thank you!
  10. dare2lare, Sorry I missed your post earlier, I don't remember seeing it. I sent you a PM about U of Minnesota.
  11. I interviewed a couple of weeks ago and I thought it went horrible! Well, not because of the program. I was really impressed with the program, however I felt like I had interviewed really poorly. Apparently the interview went really well. I recently received an acceptance, so that was great! Also, I wonder how different a visitation will be considering I was already accepted at a program. No interview or anything, I just received an acceptance and an invite to visit their program. For some reason I thought it would be easier to visit a program that I have been accepted to already, but that
  12. Cool, thanks for the reply! I applied to their social program, so maybe (hopefully) I'll hear from them soon, too. Good luck on your interview and I hope you get in!
  13. Congratulations on the interview! And I know how you feel about the interview, I had one earlier this week... but I won't get into that. Judging by your sig, is your interview with UConn? Could you please tell me if that is for their psych program, and if so, which program exactly? They have a couple of linguistics programs so I wonder if it's one of those
  14. I'm sure this has been discussed before many times, the pros and cons of the GRE test, and so I'll just add that I do agree with your point. At least in as much that GPA (information of 4+ years) should probably be weighted more heavily than GRE test scores. Of course people with a GPA that is not so good should have the opportunity to explain it, as obviously not everyone has the same experiences in college. In all honesty I don't believe any program using cutoffs, in any criteria, is a good idea. But all of this is arbitrary considering we will probably never have an understanding of how
  15. This link more or less answers your question. http://www.nuance.com/for-individuals/by-industry/education-solutions/transcribing-interview/index.htm However, keep in mind that there are different ways to transcribe an interview. It really depends on what information you wish to derive from the interview. You won't, for example, be able to capture behavioral cues with this program.
