    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    Whew. Just got out of a stressful interview. I didn't get to speak to my POI in-depth (we interviewed with 3 profs at a time, with one prof leading the interview - which was not my POI). I feel like I floundered around the entire time. Even worse, they let us know early on in the day that their class size is going to be 3-4 people. There were at least 20 of us in the room. So much pressure! 😮 It almost felt worse to know that I had made this THIS FAR and could very possibly miss out on an acceptance by a TINY margin. Ugh.

    The latest is also that she's a troll who is a freshman in undergrad. The scariest thing is I can't tell if it's one person who posted all of those things... or if someone legitimately posted the first response and then other trolls are pretending to be her lol. Drama on GC, the highlight of my Friday.

    Yeah, the most recent posts where they're just spewing vitriol and narcissism seems super trollish to me. That said, I too am a huge drama sponge and can't help getting caught up in refreshing and reading it haha.

    For a bunch of future mental health professionals, people can sure be nasty when it's under the guise of anonymity. Who else tried to Google who TM is? 😅

    This. Also, a lot of programs are still finalizing funding and/or make offers of admission separate from funding packages. I'm holding 3 offers right now but that's because none of them have gotten back to me about funding yet. Chill out, guys. If you're going to get off the wait list, it will happen whether it's today or in a month.

    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    This happened to me before (not this cycle, but for masters programs in another career path). And of course, it has happened to me more times than I can count for internships and jobs. Those hiring - whether they're PIs or HR managers - need to go through the steps for appearance and legality's sake, but most often they already have a candidate in mind. It really sucks to get your hopes up about an opportunity only to know that you were shot in the foot before you ever walked in the room. At this point I'm just trying to be authentic, not overprepare (actually I don't prepare at all lmao), and take each interview as a practice opportunity. Once we're in, we're going to be interviewing for practica/externships, and then predoc internships, and then postdocs, and then jobs... the more practice we get interacting with other psych professionals in an interview setting, the better off we'll be. I've noticed that my confidence levels has definitely grown as I've gone through my interviews. My first interview was a hot mess (still got accepted so you never know) but my most recent one felt great.

    CCNY or LIU-Brooklyn PhD Clinical Psychology

    Can't help you with your question, but if you like psychodynamic work you should definitely look at Adelphi and Yeshiva too! I hear CCNY really emphasizes research, but cannot confirm.

    Depends on context. Day after an interview? Nah. 3 weeks after an interview? Sure.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    Honestly I just wanted schools to embrace PSYCAS. The med schools have a centralized system, so does dentistry and podiatry and pharmacy and veterinary and physical therapy and public health.... I could go on for ages. But noooo, we still have to go through this horrid process. I was so thankful for my schools that DID do PSYCAS because it meant I only needed to send my transcripts ONCE instead of 15 times (that shit is pricey).

    With the assumption/hope that by 4th year you will have the balls to tolerate the drastically different environment of SDN vs GC It's really an exercise to separate out the fluff on that site.

    I'm starting to feel like Rutgers is not in the cards for me, but I can't help still holding on to hope. Meanwhile, Springfield's interviews are either this Friday or next Friday and no one has heard back. Go figure.

    I'm not affiliated with them in any way, but for folks who struggle with armpit sweat, I HIGHLY recommend these shirts: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BF83PZD/?coliid=I4C2WYLSKB5QK I have hyperhydrosis (basically means I sweat like nobody's business) and these shirts absorb it all. Practically magic. I bought myself 7 (one for each day of the week) and they have never failed me. They're thin enough to wear under a dress shirt without being uncomfortable.

    Springfield is kinda getting me worried. Their interview dates are 2/15 and 2/22 so they're kind of cutting it close.........

    This is a mood. One of my programs: "You'll hear from us the first week of February". Well, here it is, and I still haven't heard! But there's two more days in the week so ehhh??

    I've been wearing a blouse and slacks. No suits for me. Most folks tend to wear suits. I'm just at a point in my life where I feel much more comfortable without, and would prefer a program that isn't going to ding me on something as silly as whether I wore a suit vs a blouse

    I was half of the posts about William James lol. I get a little defensive about people judging others' choices.

    I haven't heard yet. The prof I contacted (2 weeks ago) told me we would hear back the first week of February (this week), so hopefully we'll know soon!!
