    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Did anyone hear back from Columbia TC for clin psych post-interview? It's the only school that hasn't rejected me yet, and the faculty met today. So effing nervous rn. Please PM me if you have!!

    I is stressed *Non-Judgmental Space for PhD Applicants*

    Gotta say sweet words to keep your sidepieces happy enough to stick around. Would you be okay being a backup plan if they didn’t flatter you? Less likely. I don’t blame professors for that strategy but I’m done taking their word at face value. Been waitlisted or rejected after compliments too many times.
  3. While most people would (correctly) argue that undergrad institution doesn't matter, it does. I was recently at an interview and nearly 80% of the other applicants were from Ivies or schools that were near them in rank. If your POI grew up in the American education system which values those types of rankings, (which are often dependent on SES + generation + social capital), if they don't explicitly state it, they at least have an unconscious bias about it. This bias is also shown when you see how many people from tenure track positions are from upper tier schools. It's not fair, but it's how this system works.

    Columbia Teachers College - School Psychology PhD Interview

    since this is necro'd already, does anyone know whether the funding between phd programs (counseling + clinical) is shared between departments? did anyone who was interviewed for counseling hear about whether this is the case? i asked clinical profs and they didn't really provide a clear answer
  5. Wait what's the risk in your opinion? My brain isn't working Damn, I asked some hard questions to one of the grad students of the lab. Hoping this doesnt burn me. AHHHHHH
  6. Sent thank you emails to the people I interviewed with, and stated that they're my #1 choice. No response. RIP. Will be a week until I hear back, minimum. Just gearing up for cycle 3, sigh.

    Um, can the person who just got the acceptance to Columbia's clinical psych program (TC?) please post their lab? The interview literally just ended tonight. Wtf. Faculty are meeting next week. Can do it anonymously if you're uncomfortable

    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    Hey, I ended up doing this and the PI said I seemed composed and not nervous at all, lol. I'm definitely self-critical but that's because I had a good sense of my baseline. In any event, I appreciate your response I'm finally done with interviews and one thing I'm starting to believe is that, it doesn't matter how well you think an interview went. For clinical psych, at least, the PIs are trained to become active listeners and nodding or smiling doesn't necessarily mean that they agree. Could just mean for you to go on. And, honestly, once you're at the interview stage, you're probably with equally qualified candidates. Everyone's interview, or at least their conversations, will go very well. Thus, I think it's better to think of it as 'not terrible,' or 'not bad.' That way, you don't get your hopes up. I thought I absolutely nailed an interview, to learn that I interviewed for a spot that was already taken months in advance. I'm seeing this trend more and more, hearing it through other candidates' experiences, so I'm done thinking I can predict the admissions process. Just do your best, and hope your personality 'FiTs WiTh tHeiR LaB'.

    Have tried to reach their secretary/admin/staff for weeks and no pickup or response. I'm not convinced they're a real school.
