    Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    it seems like it depended on the POI then; i got my acceptance 9 days after the interview weekend

    I also applied to McGill's Experimental Psychology track and haven't heard anything from them. I'm not sure what to make of the radio silence, especially since there aren't many posts in the results section to go off of.

    Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    @psycphd adding to the other response to your question, it sounds like the faculty haven't even met yet to discuss candidates, based on the quotes you supplied, so i think you're ok! also, does anyone want to claim the university of michigan acceptance posted 2/21? i'm wondering if that was for one of the areas that doesn't do interviews (e.g. developmental, i think), since i was under the impression that decisions wouldn't be out until 2-3 weeks post-interview weekend (it hasn't even been a week yet), or if i should be worried lol

    @VVMM thank you, that's helpful to know. the interviews were about two weeks ago, so i am very anxious to hear back!!

    @VVMM i'm sorry to hear that. did you interview with your POI at the open house? i was also seeing the rejections (and one acceptance) posted, but i haven't heard anything after interviewing for the cognitive area at the beginning of the month.

    this thread has been pretty quiet; how's everyone doing? how are interviews going? i just got back from an open house last week, and i think it went well but i honestly have no idea what my chances are at this point. *sigh* the wait continues

    PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    hey there! i had three post-application interviews at ucsd, umich, and penn state, and i've been invited to the recruitment weekends for all three. ucsd took the longest to get back to me - three and a half weeks - while penn state and umich were both about a week of waiting. i also had a few informal phone/Skype calls with different POIs at maryland regarding NACS (neuro and cog sci program) after emailing them pre-application, but i haven't heard anything about my application yet. i've seen three interview invites go up on the results page this month, two of which went up today, so i'm not sure what to make of that. i hope this helps!

    2018 Neuroscience PhD Applicants and Admission Results

    I've seen two Maryland NACS interviews go up today, congrats! If you have any information about whether they've finished sending invites or if you'd feel comfortable DMing me your POI, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    hey there, this happened to me as well. i told my top choice program that i had already committed to attending the recruitment weekend for another program and asked if i could arrange a separate visit. they understand that everyone is interviewing people at the same time, so they were very accommodating for me and scheduled me to come when they have a job candidate coming in as well and some other events on campus. congrats on the invites, and good luck!

    Always Check to Make Sure Your Scores Are Received

    I am currently having this problem with one school, and I am growing increasingly nervous that my application will not be looked at because they still do not think they have received my scores. In November, I sent my scores to several schools. The application portal for one school was still showing their status as not received in the middle of December, but I thought it was just because the application deadline hadn't passed yet. After another week of waiting, I contacted the department's academic coordinator to ask if this was just a processing delay or if there was a problem with receiving/matching my scores. I confirmed multiple pieces of information with the coordinator (registration number, email address, etc.), who seemed convinced that I had done something wrong and had not sent my scores. Since the holiday break I've followed up a couple of times with no reply. They kept saying that they would contact IT to see if it was a problem on their end after I had confirmed each piece of information, but don't appear to have done so. I've contacted IT myself, as well as the IT folks from the company that runs the online platform, and I either haven't gotten a reply or have gotten an entirely unhelpful answer (e.g. applicants must send their scores directly from the testing company using xyz institution code... which is what I already did!). I also contacted ETS directly to confirm that they were sent to the correct institution code and received on x date and everything. I'm getting so frustrated, and I don't know what other options I have other than to sit around waiting for someone from the department to contact me. I may try calling today instead of emailing to shake things up. I have a standard first middle last name combination without any unexpected spaces or hyphens, and I've never changed my name, so I don't understand how it could be so difficult to match my scores to my application. Also, several other schools figured it out with no problems! Thanks for the space to vent, and I hope it will work out for me as it has worked out for all of you.

    Was your phone call something you set up pre-application, or was it an interview to inform recruitment weekend invites? I applied to C&P but have not heard anything from them. Thanks, and good luck!

    Has anyone had problems with Johns Hopkins Cognitive Science matching their GRE scores to their application? I sent my scores to all my schools in the middle of November and only JHU is having trouble with them. I'm getting nervous that they're not going to look at my application!
