  1. I'm going to UMSL for Clinical Psychology! Anyone else out there going to UMSL?
  2. Hoping to spread a little hope for those still on waitlists... I was just accepted from the waitlist into my top program! It can happen! Keep the faith alive!!
  3. No telling really. Just a waiting game at this point. I just plan on continuing to express my interest in the program and hoping for the best.
  4. To the UMSL results poster, would you mind PMing me your POI?
  5. (asking for a friend without a gradcafe account).. Has anyone heard from University of Missouri - St. Louis' (UMSL) I/O PhD program? Nothing but crickets.....
  6. Yeah, it definitely sounds like there are multiple variables involved here. Don't want to be a bother by asking the head of the department these questions. Unless, do you think this would be appropriate?
  7. Like many people in this process, I've been placed on an alternate list. Trying not to lose hope as this program was my top choice, and I've been told that I'm a 'high alternate.' With that being said, I'm reading the programs brochure and it references "CUDCP GUIDELINES FOR GRADUATE SCHOOL OFFERS AND ACCEPTANCES." In it, it states the following: b. A reasonable designation of the student's position on the alternate list is encouraged (e.g., high, middle, or low on the alternate list.) If such designation is used, the operational definition of "high on the alternate list" is that, in a normal year, the student would receive an offer of admission (but not necessarily funding) prior to April 15 decision date. Does anyone know anything more about this?
  8. On the APA website, they have instructional videos for certain things you can do when you fall into different positions - alternate list, multiple acceptances, rejections, etc. You can find those videos here: http://www.apa.org/education/grad/application-video-series.aspx Within these, it said that all programs have agreed to answer the question, "In typical years, what percentage of students with this position on the alternate list receive an admission offer?" And then it also stated that if this program is your top program, you can do 3 things when contacting them each time: 1. Mention you are keenly interested in attending this program. 2. You remain available. 3. You have not and will not accept any other offer until you hear from them first. "This frequently moves you up on the alternate list as someone who will say 'yes.'"
  9. Like many applicants, I've applied to both Masters and PhD programs in Clinical Psychology this year. Does anyone have any advice on things to look for/ask about during interviews in a Masters program for those hoping to eventually complete a PhD in Clinical Psychology?
  10. Has anyone heard from University of Missouri - St. Louis' (UMSL) I/O PhD program?
  11. @kitcassidanceFor the program that I interviewed with and was waitlisted, they mentioned that the following week (after the interviews) was when they would be making admission decisions. The director of the program also said that they would not send out notifications to alternates and encouraged us to contact if we were interested. I waited about a week and then once I saw other people post acceptances, I contacted the head of the department and asked about my status.
  12. Does anyone know how waitlists typically work? Are you on a waitlist for your specific POI or the program as a whole? Is it a wait for one person to turn down a spot or anyone from the cohort?

  14. For those interested, I've started a thread for those on waitlists:
