  1. That's actually really shitty on that professors part. You have a really hard decision and visiting schools is an important part of the decision. That response would have riled me up. I would respond back with something along the lines of asking "If I say yes to your visit, am I your top applicant?". If he says yes, then maybe ask the other school for an alternate date (assuming this professors school is higher on your list). If he doesn't say you are his top choice, then I would go to the other school for a visit. This is also assuming you think you have a good shot at both schools (be realistic in your thinking). If one is a stretch, and the other is more realistic, def go to the more realistic one (imo of course)
  2. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    Kent did not offer anything. Did you have a skype interview with your POI beforehand? I had a formal Skype interview with mine s few days after the application deadline.

    I will be there also at Kent for developmental psych. I also haven't heard anything back from Utah.

    Anyone else hear back from any of these schools yet for either developmental or Lifespan? University of Missouri University of Alabama University of Utah Virginia tech?
  5. Fall 2018 Psych PhD Interviews (not clinical)

    I haven't heard anything back form Utah. I talked to one of the professors before submitting my application (POI: LR) and he encouraged me to apply and was interested so I wouldn't start sweating yet. Though i believe the interview weekend is Feb 9th so hopefully we hear something by next week. I can't go anyways because I already confirmed another school on the same weekend.

    I'm not sure. I heard back from POI on Dec 11th though. On campus is Feb 9-10th so there still might be some going out.
  7. Skype vs in person interview??

    Personally I would do the Skype interview if the two schools are somewhat close on your list (top 1 and 2). I would start off the Skype call, or say in an email to the POI, that "while school B is my top choice, I already committed for an on campus interview with school A, and I don't want to destroy bridges between professor X in case an opportunity arises where I can work with them later in my academic career" or something similar. I think it also matters how highly you think you place on their application list. If one is a stretch school while the other is more realistic, go to the other.
