    Yes, most programs send invites in waves, but they're completely done sending invites at this point unfortunately.

    Unfortunately, that seems to be the case — all of those programs have already extended their interview invites by this point.
  3. Yes, expect these many interviews from any type of doctoral psychology program

    So only about 3% of those who applied for UMSL’s doctoral Clinical Psychology program will ultimately get a spot this year — that’s about the typical norm for doctorate Clinical Psychology programs that offer guaranteed funding for students

    They have for most part now

    It depends on the rhythm of the conversation — if it seems like the interviewer is engaged discussing research fit, go along with it. If it seems like you’re doing /all/ the talking about the topic for 10 minutes straight, might be a good idea to move on to something else

    Interview Advice

    Current students likely wouldn’t know, and that seems like an awkward question for the POI to answer

    Yeah, that’s not a good sign if you haven’t heard from them directly yet

    Honestly, more than likely, I’m willing to bet she chose the candidate with connections to professors she’s familiar with. It’s a factor that can trump grades, GRE scores, publications, and research experience. That, or the program needed to fill a demographic gap.

    Unfortunately, social capital is what matters most in the real world — effort and perseverance come second.
  11. Just “state the fact” that it’s your #1 choice. Mention it only one time to each interviewer at your school of choice and on your thank you emails/notes

    Less work for you, I guess ?

    From my past experience, opting to book a hotel may put you in a slight disadvantage. Specifically, you'll be missing a key opportunity to bond with a current student in the program. Yes, you will have opportunities to speak with students during interview day events, but the home-stay provides a more personalized opportunity to discuss your host's experience in the program. If possible, I'd suggest trying to push yourself to do a home-stay for your top-choice programs, but request a host who can provide a private sleeping room due to your sleeping issues you described.

    I’m a current student there — I can say that we’ve started arranging hosts for interviewees today, so it seems invites are going out earlier than last year.

    Tough love, but it’s the truth — I agree with this.
