    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    I'm waiting with ya! That PhD acceptance was in a different field. Now I'm making the move into clinical psychology. I had an interview today, but they told me they had no idea when admissions decisions are going to be made ah!

    I think you're joking, but I'll give a serious answer: I got my PhD acceptance on April 15th...so hold on to the hope.

    Fall 2019 Psychology Doctoral ACCEPTANCES!!

    Congrats to the William and Mary poster! I applied there too, so of course I'd love to hear about it. Did you interview (I didn't see any interviews posted, but it seems like they've done them in the past)? Who's your POI?

    Interview Advice

    I have an interview this week (woo!), so I've been prepping obsessively. I've been reading tons of articles, so I can have a good research proposal and have thoughtful questions to ask the professors. I'm starting to worry that I'll seem too "scripted" with all this preparation. I am genuinely interested in everything I'm going to bring up; but, because I've been studying my ass off for this interview, it doesn't feel like it will seem genuine anymore (it still is genuine, but I'm worried it won't come across that way). Has anyone else felt like they'll sound scripted/dispassionate even though you're not dispassionate? How did you overcome that?

    I don't think I'll get in; but, if I do, I'll have many questions. Thanks for the offer! (...though, of course, if you know when we'll be hearing back from those places, that would be super, too heh)

    I want to ask you (and everyone) about your comment that you should avoid masters programs if you can get a paid research position. Just as some background, I applied to Clinical Psych PhDs because a clinical psychologist that I know thought that my background (MA in Philosophy of Science with research in philosophy of psychology and MA in Mathematical Behavioral Science + a BA + 2 other MAs) would be sufficient for getting in. As I expected, I don't think I'm getting into a PhD. Now I'm waiting on 2 funded masters programs and a gazillion paid research assistant positions. I would assume that the coursework I'd get in an MA could be beneficial to me because, on paper, I don't have a degree that simply says "psychology." Am I misguided about that?

    If you find any other programs, feel free to share. I'm 99% sure I didn't get into my PhD programs, so I'm trying to apply to funded masters. So far I've applied to Wake Forest and William & Mary (though those application dates have passed).

    I asked already, but I have to ask again: what's going on with UW-Madison? I still haven't seen it on the results page. It says there have been 2 interview offers on the spreadsheet, but does that mean they're done?

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    I have one PhD program that I've seen nothing from. In previous years they sent out invites in early January. I've tried to be patient, but I think I'm going to contact them if there's no posts by the end of next week. Does anyone have any advice on inquiring about the status of applications?

    Does anyone have a link to that google doc (I think it's a google doc...) of admissions results? I've been digging through old posts and I can't find it. Thanks!

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    Dear person who heard from Maryland-College Park: Did you hear about it because you reached out to them or did you hear independently?

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Anyone have any updates on UW-Madison? I don't think they've sent out invites until the end of January in the past, but I'm still getting antsy.
