    Fall 2019 Developmental Psychology Thread

    I'm doing that as well. Luckily I moved my classes to be only MW to avoid missing any and I got a lot done for my thesis last semester. So it's mostly lab time I'm worried about.

    Fall 2019 Developmental Psychology Thread

    Ugh I'm in a bit of a predicament. I've got interviews every weekend from the 24th of Jan - the 22nd of Feb and it's making me miss a lot of lab time. I normally work 18-20hrs a week and this will cut my time down a lot. I've also been invited to an 'accepted students day' at UConn on Feb 28th and I'm getting a lot of pressure from them to RSVP. It doesn't conflict with any of my interview times but it's only an 'okay' option for me so I'm hesitant to take more time off if I'm not going to accept the offer anyway. I wanted to wait until after I've heard a decision from my first choice, which I will be interviewing for Feb 1st, to RSVP one way or the other, but they're really wanting an answer by Jan 24th. So idk what to do. I don't want to not go and have it be my only acceptance.

    Got an interview at UNCG! It's HDFS though, not Developmental Psych.

    I applied to UConn's HDFS program, not Dev. I got an acceptance without an interview, but I did have an email correspondence with the PI before applying. The email invited me to "Graduate Student Weekend" from Feb 28- March 2, it sounded like a recruitment event to sell me on the program and show me the area, more than an interview.

    What program is this for? I applied to UNCG for HDFS but I know most people on here are Clinical.

    I got my first acceptance! UConn is my 4-5 choice so I probably won't go unless my interviews go really badly, but still I'm so much more relaxed now!

    I didn't apply to the HDFS program but I just had skype interview for the Developmental Psych program on Saturday. I'm thinking that means formal invites will go out in the next week or so, so probably don't worry yet.

    I agree. UMD is actually one of my last choices anyways, I was mostly just wanting to practice and I also didn't want to pass up any opportunties. Thanks for the words of support!

    She seemed pretty positive with her responses to my answers, she definitely asked some hard ones that other schools didn't (Who trained your PI on the Strange Situation), but she didn't provide an extensive amount of feeback one way or another. I also got weird vibes when I emailed her before submitting my application, it was very short and didn't really leave room for questions then either, where as other PIs said something along the lines of "don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions" so maybe that's just her style? She did say that she may reach out to me to speak again at a later date (Interview weekend invite?) or I could schedule a call to ask her questions. So it was like this is her call to ask her stuff, if I want to ask her anything I need to set that up myself. Everything about my interactions with her has been kind of odd.

    Anyone have a skype/phone interview where they didn't leave time for you to ask them questions? I just got done interviewing with UMD and they said they had 30 minutes to talk, asked me questions for 30 minutes and then said goodbye, so weird. I've had 3 other interviews and they all asked if I had any questions at the end. Kinda thinking it means she's not going to offer me an in-person interview.

    Bummer. Thanks! Good luck on all your interviews!

    Question time!! I've received an interview offer with Tufts! This is my second interview offer so far, and I'm pretty sure I'll accept. It's a solid middle choice for me, probably #5 out of 8 that I applied to. For the interview, they requested that I list 3-4 PIs that I want to interview with while I'm there. I only listed 2 PIs that I'm interested in on my application and those two are the ones I intended to work with, there is a 3rd that is a very loose fit with my interests, but I honestly don't know much about her and I would need to do some extra research before the interview (I have time). Should I list all three because I'm there anyway and why not, or just the two because 1) I only listed two in my application and 2) Interviewing with the third member has a high potential to be a waste of both of our time.

    Is that Missouri state or Mizzou? I ask because Mizzou is my second choice and I haven't heard anything from them yet.

    Interview offer from the University of Utah, my top choice! And I think I didn't fail my statistics final! What a time to be alive.

    Anyone else already submit their applications?

    Submitting three tonight! 2 others require extra writing samples that I'll finish over Thanksgiving and the other 3 have January deadlines so I've got more time for them.
