    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Boston College's interviews are this upcoming Mon/Tues so I think they've sent all invitations out.

    Anyone heard from (or also waiting to hear from) Northwestern cognitive?

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    Yeah...I had a POI tell me in October that they weren't planning on taking a student, but to apply anyway. I decided not to apply, and saw on here that they ended up scraping funding together to make an offer to someone else :~) Another common thing is that multiple faculty may want to take on new grad students in the same year. If there are 2 spots and 4 faculty, certain faculty may take priority early in the process, but the committee may decide later on that someone else has better candidates to choose from.

    Wow wait, sort of unrelated but I didn't realize until reading this and then googling the city that the school I was accepted to is in a different timezone than me. I def would've screwed this up and skyped her 3 hours early if we hadn't scheduled our meeting through a web service that defaulted to my time zone 😅

    Totally speculating here, but I wouldn't expect many PIs to reach out first thing in the morning, so you could maybe pause the anxiety from midnight-12pm. My thinking is that they're usually excited to make these offers, so they'd want to do it ASAP. If they're waiting for approval from a committee or something, they'd find out during the day and email you later. Prob won't find out at night and then wait until 9am to email you. But again...totally extrapolating

    I got my first acceptance from Vanderbilt! Other than that and an interview at FSU, I haven't heard from any other programs...

    I didn't read everyone else's responses to this, but you won't necessarily hear until after they interview everyone. I have a (lab manager) friend who told me last year her PI in a cognitive lab interviewed people, made multiple offers that got declined, then ended up making an offer to someone who they'd never even interviewed. I'm sure this is rare, but it's one example of a reason a PI would hold off on sending notifications.

    boutta make a burner email account to anonymously ask all my programs where they're at in the review process

    I applied for developmental but no! (Lowkey losing my mind over it because when we spoke in october my POI really hyped up how quickly they supposedly review apps)

    She's probably hasn't been in the office much if it's still their winter break. It's also grant writing season for a lot of professors. If she wasn't interested, she wouldn't have responded that positively to your first email...your best bet at this point is probably just to wait it out.

    Right?! Like I don't care that it exists but no one should be able to find it. And this is the only person who I've already committed to interview with 🙃

    This thread seems like a good void to shout this into: I did some light googling of my POIs the other night and stumbled upon one of their pinterest boards...full of erotica. Public and with their name on it. I'm 100% sure it's actually them and not someone with the same name, because of other context clues. Is this a red flag or just a sign that I should stop googling people and pretend I never saw this?
