    Fall 2019 Developmental Psychology Thread

    I think I shouldn't expect anything good happen to me anymore. Maybe I should just plan to apply again next year. After a good talk with a PI from NYU, she asked the committee on weekend and they said they won't invite me for a campus interview because of the research fit. I have tons of experience with cognitive development and they still think I'm not a good fit to the program. But I applied to Duke Neuroscience program with less than two months of experience with neuroscience and was still invited for a formal campus interview. For no reason I could understand. Is the application process totally random? I applied to 14 programs and only offered formal interview invitation at one currently. Also the other interviewees at Duke all have tons of experience with neuroscience. I'll try my best but personally I don't think I stand a good chance. I know I shouldn't get upset that early but sometimes I just couldn't control this feeling. It is still 3 months before I would know whether I'll be accepted into any of these programs. I can't imagine stay stressful for another 3 months. Wish you all the best in this process guys......
  3. I'm a psychology student without much experience with neuroscience and I just received Duke CNAP interviw invitation. But I don't know the exact interview date as I'm an international student so they said in the email that they'll try to set a few skype interviews for me in January. I found that someone has posted interview invites from MIT, which makes me feel a little freak out. Would you mind sharing what division are you applying to? Cognitive Science or Systems Neuroscience? I'm applying to cognitive science and wish there's still a chance.

    Just a quick update that I received a formal interview to Duke. But I applied to Duke CNAP program (not psych) which may be different from most of you. So if you haven't hear anything from Duke yet you don't have to worry as we're probably applying to different programs.(I applied to a PI who is in both CNAP program and psych program though).

    I'm applying to development psychology in C & P but I believe their pace should be similar.

    Just a quick update. I talked to a PI through skype today at NYU and she said the notifications for campus interview will be sent by X'mas. Different division may have different pace but we can expect it to happen before January lol. Pretty much freak out now. Hope they'll invite me for a formal interview.

    That's weird, I couldn't understand what they're trying to say and didn't know there's actually two psych departments. I'm applying to GSAS.

    Today is my birthday and I got my first skype interview via email. I know it's far from an official one but still quite excited. At least there is a chance that I won't be rejected by everywhere I applied!

    Submitted all 14 apps a few days ago but still haven't heard anything about interviews. Start to worry about I'll be rejected by everywhere. In addition, as an international applicant I just booked a flight to US yesterday though I'm not sure whether I'll get any interview. But I have to do so as the flight will get really expensive or even out of sell if I book it after I get any formal interviews. I really don't want to stay in US for a month and end up getting 0 interview. Hopefully it will not happen

    I also believe if I'm rejected by all the programs I applied to I'll retake GRE for next cycle as I did so badly on the writing section. But personally I think your math is fine. The psych department at Indiana University posted that they only require the Math and Verbal to be above 50% and I believe IU is already a very competitive program (psychology rank 17 on US news) . I have no idea why but schools never post their cut-off scores for the AWA section, which makes me even more worried.

    Maybe you should remind your recommender to check the spam box? The link is sometimes blocked.

    I've submitted 10/14 of the applications and my recommenders have submitted letters for 11 schools. Starting to get bored of revising PS and filling the application forms over and over.

    Identifying potential supervisors

    I guess it really depends on the program you're applying. Most of the programs I applied to indicated they prefer to accept students whose interests overlap with multiple faculties in the department.
