    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.

    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.

    Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    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.

    Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    I can't share what anyone's actual reasons might be, but I can tell you why I would assume for only stating them through private message (or for being purposefully vague when discussing your own stats). There is a [good] chance that POIs are aware of these forums and might even watch them. If you give enough identifying information on here, it probably becomes easy to figure out exactly which applicant you are. There is no way to know what sort of implicit or explicit association that POI has with this forum, the fact that you have shared information about being contacted, or anything else you have said or done on the forum. There is then the chance that this could impact your chances of getting into the program. The initials thing I am not totally sure about, honestly.

    Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    All the University of Iowa's on survey have specified the subfield of psychology (1xchild-clinical, 2xcounseling, 1xcognitive, 1xclinical, and 1xexperimental). The one that specified as cognitive says it was an informal contact, so I wouldn't worry. https://www.thegradcafe.com/survey/index.php?q=iowa&t=a&o=&pp=25 I've only seen school psychology pop up for MIZZOU so far.
