    Fall 2020 Clinical & Counseling PhD/PsyD

    Congrats on that!!! I will probably take you up on yoru DM offer. There are a couple faculty members there who I would really, really like to get to learn from. I'm still in the early stages, but suspect UNL will either be my top hope or very close to it.

    Fall 2020 Clinical & Counseling PhD/PsyD

    Hello and good luck to everyone! I'm applying to both Marriage and Family Therapy and Clinical Psychology PhD programs, but there isn't a Human Ecology forum on Gradcafe, so I'm just going to track everything here (Therapy and Counseling are close enough, right? 😉). Like OP, I've got some geographical logistics that severly limit the locations I can move to (which is why I'm applying to both MFT and Clinical Psych programs), and when you throw in wanting faculty that match my focus areas that gives me this list for applications: University of Iowa (MFT) University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (MFT) Kansas State University (MFT) University of Nebraska-Lincoln (PSY) University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign (PSY) University of Wisconsin-Madison (PSY) University of Iowa (PSY) University of Kansas (PSY) University of Missouri- Kansas City (PSY) I think I have a good basis for application, though I''m a very non-traditional student. Got a good academic record with a Psychology bachelors (4.0 and completed in 2 years, 3 months) and MFT masters (4.0 so far, graduating in 2020). Only one research poster presented at a graduate symposium, but it won the highest level of award for poster presentations at the event (will also be working on thesis research at time of applications/interviews). Haven't been a TA, but have guest lectured for some undergraduate courses to help out a couple of my professors and get that experience. 165/162/4.5 GRE (though it's going to be 2 years old for these applications, but decided to not stress about retaking it this year and will next year if applying again). Have clinical experience as a student therapist at my university's clinic. Also have some letters/credentials I can list after my name (and hope to have one more set before graduating with my masters) that are related to my research and clinical population of focus. Mainly worried about trying to make sure I have good personal statements, so I took a light credit load this summer (6hrs) to work on them and the applications.

    Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Ditto for some of mine. I've seen other people both accepted and rejected for some of the programs, but I've heard nothing and my status on the websites is still awaiting decision or under review.

    I totally feel you. Best of luck, as well!

    PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    According to gradcafe survey history, we probably won't hear from them for another week, at the least. It will probably closer to end of the month.

    If anyone is interested in Nebraska-Lincoln, Clinical. I got an email letting me know all interviews have been extended.

    Can anyone who got an interview with Nebraska-Lincoln clinical please message me with your POI? Thank you

    PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    I'm forestalling freaking out until next Friday. I did my Friday sweep of application statuses and still have no updates, no emails, nada. Gradcafe history says my programs still have time, though I'm seeing interviews going out for a couple of them. Next Friday is a good midpoint for when the majority of my programs have contacted people. One of the programs looks like generic rejection emails went out today, so I'm choosing to be grateful I didn't receive one of those.

    PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    Not yet. According to gradcafe survey past data, decisions for the DPCS track seem to go out in late January.

    It depends on your program. If you look through the survey, you'll find that for many programs interview invitations haven't been sent out, in the past few years anyways, until January and even into mid-February (though less common). This is actually the case for most of the programs I applied for. Don't freak out, yet!

    PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    Just ran through my weekly/Friday check ins on PhD applications- still no updates! Didn't actually expect there to be, considering most the schools have notes on their systems or sent out emails about being MIA from the 23rd to the 1st. I'm excited to find out what happens after the first.

    Fun Post: Best and Craziest Backup Plans

    I haven't heard from any of my PhD program schools so far, either. I think it's still fairly early. I've only seen one of my schools pop up with two interview invites for my program, but the person I talked to did not have the same POI as I do. The other of my school programs that has popped up on survey has been only for rejections, so I'm not bummed at all to have not heard from the program for those emails. I don't think we should get too worried about not being contacted. It sounds like you are a very strong candidate and there's still lots of time during this application season. If you do end up needing a second backup plan.... worldschooling is a thing

    Data on Grad Cafe Psychology Results

    This is fantastic, thank you for sharing!

    I would appreciate this information, as well.

    I agree, I don't think there is much reason not to share initials through the survey format. That format doesn't directly connect anyone to their forum avatar. I honestly doubt many POIs check regularly, but I bet many know about gradcafe. I think the not sharing in the forum is more a safe than sorry/discretion and valor type thing.
