  1. ...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
  2. .......Can we? Come together and bask in our anxieties and worries? Am I the only one here? 😭😭😭😭😭😭 Today I woke up wanting to e-mail the PI (at my top program) and telling them that they’re my #1 choice, lmao. It’s only been a week post-interview for this program, but I love it SO freaking much..... and the PI immediately responded to my post-interview email with such great/warm feedback........... Ugh. What are all of you thinking about and ruminating over? I would cancel my upcoming interviews immediately if I received an offer from this PI, tbh 😩😭

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    This is so unfortunate but I feel like this happens much more frequently than we think. I am also a woman, POC, and felt this exact way at two interviews. On the other hand, it could have been the case this PI did actually advocate for you, but perhaps the committee/other faculty turned you down due to the lack of experience (in comparison to choices #2-4, or whatever the alternate list was). Hang in there. It's a crappy feeling for sure.

    Waitlist and Help Me Decide Thread 2019

    I can’t help but reference the Yale drama from a couple of days ago..... This response strongly sounds like “THEY ARE MY OFFERS [!!!!!!]” lmao 😂 I personally (and basically every expert I work with in the field?) think it’s absolutely inappropriate and inconsiderate to hold on to more than 2 offers at any given time. It’s a jerk move, but you do you, boo!

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

    For anyone reading this: Please do seek out professional help if you feel your emotions and/or stress is becoming overwhelming. You do not have to suffer with these thoughts alone. Being rejected from programs, especially in your first application rounds, is very normal. I recommend for you to look around at the feedback some of us have given to applicants across these threads who are taking rejections very personally. Feel free to PM me if you want to debrief a little bit more? I have given so much personal feedback to fellow applicants on here who were rejected across the board. I went through this process three times, and really learned about myself and how to change my relationship with rejections.
  15. lmfaooooooo WHY ARE YOU ME. I literally just have their program website as my homepage at this point (almost) and just keep stalking/refreshing, reading things I may have missed..... and also re-reading my emails with my PI. I’m a f%cking mess. JUST LET ME IN!!!!! 😭😭😭😂😂😂😂😂
  16. Did you get your letter w/ the offer already? If so, then it's official as hell and you need to own it LOL! Your program was top 10-15 competitive in the country I would say (my opinion), so own that $h!t and go celebrate dude!!!!! No more impostor syndrome, you're in! Yes yoooOooooou ❤️
  17. I just did it. No shame, judge me all day. I love them and I want them to know it LMAO. LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS UUUUUGHHHHHHHHHH
  18. I don't think it's a risk at all actualy, if I felt more ballsy/confident, I wish I would've done the same! I guess my original/irrational fear in doing this was that I didn't want to come off "too strong" to the PI lol, so I played it safe in my e-mail.
  19. You're bold af, lol. But don't feel bad, 2 PIs never responded to my e-mails, and I feel some kind of way after other PIs have responded... idk. This sh!t sucks
  20. I got a little "closure" with the PI at the end of the interview day and expressed my gratitude for the opportunity, then followed up with a thank-you e-mail the next day after interviews, saying thanks AGAIN lmfao.... The PI told me in their response I could e-mail them in the meantime with any questions, and I'm trying so hard to not to send an e-mail.................................... I just want them to KNOW that this feeling is real and I would not wait even the slightest second to accept LOL ahhhhhhhh what if I'm not even their top choice, I will....... be so heartbroken fml
