    How to request email over skype rather than in-person

    I like what CUDCP is doing with posting all their dates on a calendar. APA should create a centralized calendar or system for all of their programs to post and make it part of APA accred requirements =P

    Question for people getting interviews!

    Depends on the program and where they fall on the clinical/research spectrum. My PsyD programs have been far more impressed by my clinical rather than research experience, understandably. Some of the balanced PhD programs like clinical experience. Obviously the APCS schools will REALLY prefer research experience.

    I is stressed *Non-Judgmental Space for PhD Applicants*

    I dreamt last night that I got an invite to FDU. Very specific dream, as you can see. That's all that happened in the dream - I looked at my email. Obsession slowly becomes madness....

    It is xD We're just dumping both clinical and counseling in here though, since so many folks have applied to both / they're practically the same thing nowadays.

    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    I've been really struggling when faculty ask me whether I have any non-research-related questions for them. I'm a neurotic who has scoured every inch of the department websites so I feel like I already know everything there is to know about the program, and I'm seriously struggling to come up with questions. What are some that y'all like to use?

    Psy.D. Interviews- What to expect

    Hiiii! I'll PM you about CHC specifically too since I just did their interview In general they are assessing for "fit" in terms of their idea of what makes a good clinician. So expect questions about why their program, what are your views on mental health, what theory speaks to you, what kinds of populations you want to work with or believe are underserved, what kind of prac experiences do you want, and what you want to do in the future. There will be some research questions but they do want to weed out the folks who are all-in on research as that would not be a good fit. So emphasize that you want to have the well rounded experience of research, and clinical, and supervision, and teaching, and program design/eval, etc.

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    The "short list" is the list of folks that they are considering bringing in for an interview and/or admitting (I'm not sure how I/O does interviewing). Basically, you're under consideration This is good!

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    If anyone applied to Springfield's PsyD, I heard back from my admissions counselor that invites will be extended the "first week of February". Interview dates are 2/15 or 2/22.

    The admissions counselor I contacted said that interview date is "late January to early February", so I hope we hear back soon! I'm paranoid about travel plans and like to know weeks in advance haha. EDIT: Person who reported an interview from Fairleigh Dickinson on the Google spreadsheet, was it a mass email?

    Anyone heard from Yeshiva? Fingers crossed for lots of interview invites this week! It seems to be a popular one.

    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    I'm curious why "absolutely not"? I can see why you would want to refrain from programs that are not APA accred and do not plan on getting it, but programs that are in the process usually will have the accred (unless they're complete shit) by the time you graduate. Obviously you would have to cultivate your list appropriately, but for example, UHCL was "in the process" two years ago and I applied (then) anyways because it's a reputable school and had very little chance of NOT being accred. There's a time barrier between a program's inception and applying, which is why a lot of good programs are still "in process" during their first few years.

    Aww UTSW is notoriously hard to get into across the board. I actually interviewed there many years ago for their masters of nutrition program (long story) and the interview process was brutal - they chewed me up and spit me out haha. I know this sounds like a "sour grapes" situation but fingers crossed you hear some good news soon!

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Alas, I think I'm out of the running for Drexel. Most of the calls seem to have gone out this week from all of my POIs (you're asked to rank your top 3 on the application), and I didn't receive anything. I'm not writing anything off until the end of next week, but I think it might be time to have my first application season ugly cry :') Looking through the current student profiles on my POI's lab page, I'm actually not surprised. Most of their students have 2+ years of paid lab manager/research coordinator work experience in an eating disorders lab (my research interest). I... definitely do not, haha.

    I was in a similar boat - applied mainly to clinical programs, but had two counseling programs on my radar since I was a good research match with POIs. You might get a question about "why counseling psychology specifically", but otherwise the questions will be very similar - e.g. "why our program", "what are your research interests", etc.

    I know it's dangerous to fall in love with one particular program but damn I really, REALLY love my top choice school. Last year they had ~700 applicants and took 13, so the odds are not looking to be in my favour (that's <2% acceptance!) But a girl can dream, right?
