  1. Got’cha. Congrats! Any idea if the formal acceptance letters might signal that all POIs have done informal calls? I’d received a reply to a thank you email from mine a few days ago and it didn’t seem to imply that she had chosen who she was accepting yet...but at this point I honestly can’t tell anymore 😅
  2. Were you the one who posted on the results page with mentor QM a couple weeks ago? I’d sent my POI a thank you email a few days after interviews and only received a response a couple of days ago; the response didn’t imply that she had selected anyone yet.
  3. Has anyone heard from Loyola Chicago Clinical Psych post-interview? They were supposed to have met to review on the 18th and it's been over a week since then...
  4. Congratulations! I interviewed there but didn’t end up getting accepted; it definitely seemed like a really great program though and if I’d been accepted it would’ve ended up being an unexpected top choice for me too! Who are you going to work with there?
  5. I was told that they were meeting to decide acceptances today (the 18th). So we should start to hear back within a couple of days!
  6. This definitely depends on whether you are applying to PhD or PsyD (at least in the US). I currently have 4 interviews for PhD programs and 0 clinical experience but a year-and-a-half of research experience and an honors thesis in all in the same/similar field as the POIs I applied to work with. I've heard from anyone I talk to that if you have to choose between gaining research or clinical experience, always choose research experience. My guess is this is because it is easier and expected that program's have to train people to become clinicians, but it is much more difficult to train someone to conduct quality research in such a short time period.
  7. Going to have to object to that idea. Two of the four invites I've received so far have been sent at 8am. Granted, I'm Pacific timezone and the schools were both Central so it was more like 10am for them. If you live on the East Coast/Eastern timezone I would say it's probably a safe bet not to receive anything by around 10am though. Pesky timezones mess with everything. So maybe midnight-10am unless you reside on the West Coast of the US; then change it to midnight-8am (so essentially you can hold off on the anxiety while you sleep ?).
  8. Darn...probably not much hope left then, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see ?. Thanks for the response!
  9. Do you happen to know from the UAB invitation whether or not it was a mass invitation? Trying to gauge whether or not I'm still in the running there
  10. I had the same issue! I got my first two interview invites in late December and they were both for the exact same days and didn't want to drop either. The second one I received was for a school that was one of my top choices but I had already committed and bought plane tickets for the other school and did not want to risk alienating them, especially so early in the interview season. My lab mates and current PI gave me the advice to email the school you hadn't committed to yet (the one that conflicts) and make sure to emphasize just how much you want to go to their interview but you've already made a commitment to another school that you want to honor. Then ask if there is an alternative interview date (there almost always is) that you could go to for an in-person interview. Also, since admissions makes their decisions so quickly, try to ask if they have an earlier interview date. If they say that's not an option then you can do the same thing with the school you already committed to and hope that they a.) have an alternate date and b.) your plane tickets can be changed. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions! This sort of thing is a stressful, but good, problem to have.
  11. School: Loyola University Chicago Type: PhD Date of invite: 1/11/19 Type of invite: Email from Psych Department Office Coordinator on behalf of DCT at Loyola. Does not appear to be mass email, more like personalized template (e.g. insert name here type email) Interview date(s): Option of either 2/1 or 2/8 with social event night before I'm so excited, this was my first choice and I had doubts about making it to the interview stage for this program!!
  12. School: University of Cincinnati Type: Clinical Psychology PhD Date of Invite: 12/21/2018 Type of Invite: Personal email from POI Interview Dates: 2/15-2/16
  13. I’ve been doing a bit of a baking marathon. 6 dozen raspberry shortbread thumbprint cookies and a pan of copycat Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars today, a giant batch of Muddy Buddies and a pan of fudge yesterday, with plans to make about 4 dozen more cookies tomorrow. It’s a good thing it’s the holidays so there’s plenty of people to pawn them off to...
  14. I received an invite for interview weekend at Ole Miss last Tuesday (12/11)
