  1. Interview Questions/ Answers

    Hey guys, not sure if this has been answered already, but how much should we know about research interests for faculty that will be interviewing us, but are not the POI at a PhD program interview?
  2. Interview Questions/ Answers

    Hey, I've only been to one interview so far, and they did not ask for/need copies of my CV. But I think it's good to have it available (put a couple of copies in your padfolio, just in case).
  3. Let’s just TALK about it...

    If it makes you feel any better, last year I didn't apply to 2 programs that I thought were great fits, for various reasons. I felt the same way you did last cycle. I applied to them this year and didn't get in anyway. Regardless, I'm very glad to get the opportunity to interview at two programs I've received invites for this year
  4. Interview Questions/ Answers

    I recently got this question at an interview, I think this is more of a behavior-based question. Strengths should be characteristics about yourself that can help with the work at the program you are interviewing at (i.e. are you resilient, hardworking, team-oriented, inquisitive...etc?). And weaknesses should be something that you can show that you have been working to overcome. Just one opinion though, YMMV.

    Thanks for your reply! I checked the application portal, but nothing is there. I think I might email the program and see what's up.

    Hey, so I applied to Roosevelt's PsyD program and it looks like interviews went out on the 25th, today there's a post about a rejection via website link from email. But I didn't get an invite or a rejection, what could this mean?
  7. What did your mentors do for you in the application process?

    My mentor does not work in the psychology field and typically mentors pre-med students, but he did a mock interview with me and he connected me with a neuropsychologist so I could do a mock interview with him too. Other than that, he mostly gave me challenging situations where I could grow as a researcher and provided advice on how to tackle those problems. The only way I could have had better mentorship was if my mentor was in the clinical psych field, since they would be able to guide me in the nuances of the application process.

    Thanks! Yeah I've learned through the process that when schools have the POI's send out interviews, it makes the waiting process so much more anxiety provoking. Wish you good luck with your applications!
  9. Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Hey, I did not receive an invite, but by looking at the results page it looks like interviews went out for Dr. Heidi Levitt, and Dr. Paul Nestor, and potentially other unnamed PI's.
  10. Interview Questions/ Answers

    I'm also having a hard time figuring out how to answer the tell me about yourself question too. Are they looking for you to talk about you, in regards to research, what you're currently working on, your personality traits, populations you're interested in working with, past experiences related to grad school, etc.?
  11. Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Hey there! Typically if the invite is from the Director of Clinical Training, it is a mass email and all of the invites go out at once. However, some schools have PI's send out the invites, and in that case the invites can be staggered. Hope it helps, and good luck with your application season!

    The posts about UAB on the results page are about people inquiring if interviews have been sent out, no one on TGC has received one for this cycle yet
  13. Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Hey, UAB and SDSU have not sent out invites yet. Based on past results, I think we should hear back next week.
  14. Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Hey, I didn't get an invite, but on the results page posters said the invite was from POI HL (I'm assuming Dr. Heidi Levitt)

    Hey, Just wanted to update you guys that I checked in with SUNY Binghamton and all of the interview invites have already been sent, unfortunately. :/
