    I applied and haven’t heard anything either so I’d also appreciate this information!

    I heard it from a friend but I have a feeling she might have gotten her Michigans mixed up because I haven't seen anyone post about it on the results page, so take this with a large grain of salt. Edit: I'm really really not sure about the on-campus interview so I'm striking that out. Didn't want to freak anyone out!
  4. Fall 2018 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    I had a skype interview for UIUC earlier this month. As far as Michigan (Ann-Arbor), I applied there but haven't heard anything although earlier in December, people were getting Skype interviews and I think some people have gotten on-campus interviews so I assumed rejection for myself. Edit: I'm really really not sure about the on-campus interview so I'm striking that out. Don't want to freak anyone out!
  5. asking POI's or graduate office for updates

    The same thing happened to me. I decided to assume rejection since I saw others get interview invites for that school. Unless you really feel like you need the closure, I'd say let it be.
  6. "DM me your POI" thread

  7. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    Yeah, same boat as you. Definitely not fun. Sending out commiseration vibes.
  8. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    No, it wasn’t. I’m sorry you didn’t hear back though! Good luck with your other schools!
  9. PhD Fall 2018 Applicants

    I've had two unsuccessful Skype interviews/phone calls. One person got back to me around the time they said they would and let me know which I really appreciated, and the other never did but I figured out that I was out of the running thanks to this lovely website. Hope your luck is better than mine!
  10. "DM me your POI" thread

    Can the person who got an interview for Pitt’s Clinical program PM their POI?

    Do you know if this is the same for Feinberg and Evanston clinical programs?
  12. Honestly, you should try to get some research experience. You will be competing against people who have years of experience in the specific fields they want to go in. Do you have to stay near your home? The NIH has a really exceptional postbac research program that is paid for 1-2 years where you could get research experience while paying off loans. As far as GRE goes, Magoosh is a great and relatively inexpensive resource that helped me reach my GRE score goals, but really getting research experience needs to be your #1 priority if you want to get into a Ph.D. program. It may be somewhat less important for a more clinically-oriented program or a PsyD, but I'm not sure since I'm only applying to research-oriented programs. Either way, good scores are not really going to make up for a lack of experience because everyone applying to Clinical Psych programs has good GREs and GPAs. If anything, good experience will sooner make up for slightly weaker numbers. I hope that helps. PM me if you have any more questions.

    Does anyone know if Stony Brook and Temple are completely done sending out interview invites? I assume they are but just wanted to be sure.
  14. "DM me your POI" thread

    Yeah, new Temple person who posted today, please let me know as well if you can!

    Can the people who heard from Temple message me their POI's initials? Thanks!
