    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Lots of good energies your way. I'm sorry this was the outcome, I read on here how excited you were about this program. You have 2 more interviews to kick a$$ at and other programs who think your credentials are amazing. Brush it off, begin preparing for them, learn from your first interview, don't let this get to you! ❤️

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    This is something to talk about in your interviews. I think it would be inappropriate to e-mail schools simply about a publication update on your CV.
  3. ...Why was this thread not a thing?! LOL The main psychology thread has gotten so overwhelming with people across so many different areas. It’s too hard to keep up. I also enjoy reading the invites vs. the applicant threads separately. All my fellow Clinically Psychology PhD/PsyD applicants, please feel free to keep this specific thread going with your thoughts, worries, comments, exciting and depressing stories, and all in between... We are all in this miserable hell of a ride together for at least another month or two lmao.. #canitbeoveralready

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    That was me. I’m almost certain they sent out all their invites today, the department finished reviews last week. I know someone (from a different lab than mine) who received an invite today as well (he received an e-mail after me). Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions, good luck with the rest of your schools

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

    Yep. My partner has been with me through all my undergraduate and post-bac years (trials, tribulations, moves across the country, miseries, highs, lows, all in between)... This has been a wild journey, for the both of us. I will need this support and partnership, on steroids, all throughout grad school LOL And long-distance sucks so f$%king much, btw, definitely not trying to do that again at all!

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

    Especially when you have a partner, who also has a career... and so you're juggling/considering a million things at once, because any decision directly impacts his/her career. I TOO AM SO MF EMOTIONALLY DRAINED, let me wrap up these interviews lord I can't have anxieties in so many directions at once lmfao 😭

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

    Same here. Some mornings I feel great, by the afternoon I feel like $h!t at the thought of not knowing. I'm looking forward to being somewhere for 4-5 years, but packing/moving somewhere new, with people I don't know, and having to develop trust and relationships with a whole new crew all over again is.... overwhelming.
  13. I'm letting every. single. program. know they are incredible/amazing/my top choice (without really explicitly using the word "top choice"). Periodt. I'll have already spent $300-$400, per interview, at the end of this whole damn process.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    All we can do is wait and see when the Russian agent will decide to re-open the government. I'm almost certain faculty will still process apps/interview civilian track, with hopes that by March all issues regarding funds are sorted out.

    Philosophy undergrad interested in Clinical Psych PhD. What are my chances?

    They also posted this on SDN. This question has been asked hundreds of times before, in numerous variations (e.g., “What are my chances.....”, across forums. Feedback is always the same.

    Philosophy undergrad interested in Clinical Psych PhD. What are my chances?

    It’s very different in clinical psychology. Please be careful about disseminating innacurate information, there’s some of us with 4+ years of experience in clinical research and science, who’ve been doing this for years (including @21ny14), and preparing ourselves precisely for a career in this field. Based on what he/she shared in their original post, the OP needs a sound, basic educational foundation in psychology before he/she decides to most likely pursue a practice-oriented Master’s level degree. Spot on. The OP (and others on here) appear to be misinformed on the purpose of a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and what this degree actually entails.

    Philosophy undergrad interested in Clinical Psych PhD. What are my chances?

    The field has greatly moved away from psychoanalysis, and more towards cognitive-behavioral frameworks. That said, if you want to "help people for a living" (To me this sounds like you want to provide therapy? Ongoing counseling?) a Ph.D. degree in Clinical Psychology is not needed. Clinical psychologists are much more than just therapists. You can achieve this goal by pursuing practice-oriented Master-level routes (Masters in Social Work, LMSW, Masters in Mental Health Counseling, Licensed Professional Counselor, etc.). Based on what you've shared above, I would strongly recommend for you to complete a post-bac and/or Master's level program in General Psychology, at the very least, so you have foundational knowledge in psychology. If you decide you still want to pursue doctoral studies, my additional recommendation would be for you to spend a year or two volunteering in clinical research laboratories that align with your clinical interests so you get first hand experience of what it's like to work in/contribute directly to psychological research.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    I wonder if the gov. shutdown may affect offers/admissions. Depends on how funds for the different tracks are allocated, but I heard through my PI (who’s close/collaborates with PIs there) last week that the civ track may be affected (I didn’t apply that track) On a slightly related topic- NSF, NIH, etc funds are frozen/people aren’t getting paid. This is something to think about for us wanting to pursue research/gov-funded careers 😒

    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    My connections are in huge ass airports (Atlanta, Washington, etc) so I am praying this is the case for big airports as well!!!!!!

    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    For those of you who have had interviews already: How's the wait at the airports??? TSA check points??? Anyone experience any problems?? Just booked my 5th roundtrip, have 2 more to book (but waiting to do so because I'm broke LOL), and I'm very worried about the gov. shutdown and waiting times at the airport!!!!!

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

    The likelihood of receiving an invite to interview after being “waitlisted” is slim. Esp. if these programs are having their interview dates/alternative dates soon. I honestly don’t know why some programs do this (I agree it’s BS and nonsense), it instills unnecessary false hope in applicants..

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Um...They could've coordinated better and spread invites more out into early January and late February? Reviews/committee meetings could've taken place earlier in December? Days during the week (vs. ONLY Fridays) could've been feasible? The "alternate dates" provided could've been made during Tuesday-Thursdays? There were multiple solutions that could've been taken into consideration
