  1. Hi everyone, Not sure if this is the best place to post this but I'm in need of advice so I'm cross-posting. I recently committed to a Developmental Psychology Ph.D. program and am excited to start. However, I am wrestling with how to tell my new advisor that I have ADHD. It's pretty well-managed, but sometimes I need a little flexibility with taking breaks during work and/or changing up my scenery (i.e. working in the office, at home, at a library) It also means that when I'm stressed out I tend to get emotional. Sometimes, I can cry or get easily frustrated. Again, I have it pretty well-managed, but I feel like it's something I should be disclosing to someone I am going to work so closely with. For those of you in a similar situation, or who have gone through a similar situation, I would love some feedback.

  3. Hi all, I got into a program yesterday and have a call today to ask any questions of the POI. Does anyone have good question suggestions?
  4. Sooo... how long should you wait to hear back? I interviewed at my top choice two weeks ago and it's been radio silence since (which I'm assuming means I've been waitlisted) However, just a few days after the interview I was accepted into another program. I emailed the POI at my top a week later to provide her an update that while I received another offer I am still eager to hear news from that university. I haven't heard back. I want to be considerate and make a timely decision here. How long should I wait to hear news from other programs before committing to the offer I have on the table?

  6. I would suggest doing it over the phone. I would suggest that while you were honored to have received the offer and really impressed by the PI's interest and the program at the school you've decided to move forward with another institution that is a better fit for you and that you wish them the best of luck in finding a graduate student that fits their needs. But yes, definitely decline as soon as possible. Some programs actually have deadlines of how late professors can offer so you don't want to keep the professor from having the opportunity of getting another grad student.
  7. Question: If you know other professors have sent out acceptances, but you haven't heard anything about your PI. Can you assume that they've already extended to someone else?
  8. Should you tell POI's you've been accepted elsewhere..even if you don't know if you're going to accept? I interviewed on Monday at my top choice. Since then, I received an offer of admission elsewhere. Next week should I send an email along the lines of wanting to check the status of my application as I have received an offer and want to be able to make a timely educated decision?
  9. Can the Boston poster message me their POI
  10. Can the Boston developmental poster share their POI
  11. Will the person admitted to Penn state clinical message me their POI
  12. Has anyone received an interview schedule from Penn State?
