  1. I think I got really unlucky, one of the programs I applied to last year actually closed and didn’t take any students. One of my POIs got very ill last year and didn’t take students. One didn’t have funding for international students. It was super disappointing and the faculty from my alma mater was shocked that I didn’t get accepted last cycle. Anyway I recommend applying to several schools.
  2. So I am also not “technically” Canadian (long story) but my POI was unable to fund me because of it and ultimately was unable to admit me. This year I was advised to seek out my own funding if I aim to reapply and be admitted in Canada.
  3. Ok so I think I narrowed my list to: NYU UCSB Amherst Chapel Hill U of Virginia U of T I would love to exchange SOPs at some point with someone 🙂
  4. I would like to share a few very helpful links for anyone applying this year: http://psychgradsearch.wikidot.com/ https://www.sciencemag.org/careers/2018/09/applying-phd-these-10-tips-can-help-you-succeed
  5. Hey everyone! I am reapplying this year after being rejected from 6 places and then denied after being waitlisted at 2 other places. Last year was pretty disappointing but also very eye opening. I have spent the year gaining more experience and have been trying to reconsider where I should apply.
  6. Well from what my advisors told me (I am living in another country) the most important thing is if you don’t do a PhD at a top university then you will need to do a post doc at one. I’m not sure if that is also true for Americans, but here in Israel a lot of students do their PhDs here and then go abroad to a top 10 University to do their post doc.
  7. Yeah I think you are right about the publishing. I, too, am working on getting some of the research I have worked on published.
  8. I would try to post the question to the forum on ResearchGate
  9. Yeah I also am considering applying to a few masters programs here in Israel. I will also continue working in the lab I work at now. This whole process is so stressful and emotionally taxing .
  10. Yeah this process is so brutal. So far I have been rejected from two places and have had mostly radio silence from the other places. The one school I was in touch with has been ghosting me for a month, so I feel what you are going through. Do you have any alternative plans for next year?
  11. Congrats to the poster who got accepted to Clark University’s Social Program. Would you mind PMing your POI?
