  3. Thanks for the feedback! Is it ok to get something though? I wanted to get something small just to say thank you, but wanted to make sure that this would not come across sincerely and not as trying to buy favor. Any thoughts?
  4. For those of you who are being put up at a grad students home for interviews, are you getting a gift for your hosts? If so, what are you getting? Would love to hear from current grad students as well if you are on this form.
  5. Now that application season is pretty much over, I've been able to get some feedback regarding my application. Some have pointed to weaknesses in my statement of purpose that I'm not exactly sure how to improve. With that being said, is there anyone that has been admitted this cycle or a previous one that would be willing to send me their successful SOP as an example? I'm mostly looking for ways to better express my interests and passions, as I have been told I was not the most successful in that area.
  6. Happy Friday everyone! Has anyone used any online GRE prep courses that were helpful? Here's some background: I am hopeful to re-apply this coming cycle for Clinical Psychology PhD Programs. Most POIs who offered me feedback on my applications pointed to my lower than stellar GRE scores. I really want to get these up in time to apply, so I'm thinking I'll need to take the test no later than September. The biggest issue is that I have been out of school for some time and don't remember much of the math. I also work full-time, so getting to an in-person prep course would be difficult. Any insight would be very appreciated
  7. That would be great if you are willing to share your list. Thank you!
  8. Thanks for the insight! I am curious, though, what do you mean when you said you applied to labs where could bring something "new to?" Additionally, how did you go about improving your interviewing skills?
  9. Yes, if someone turns down the initial offer on the 15th, it is possible you will hear after that.
  10. have you looked at the faculty at each school? I would go to the school that has the most faculty that studies the topics you want to study, regardless of length. that way, when the next cycle comes around, you could potentially be applying to someone's lab who you know personally and have already done work with. if you're still unsure, i would also reach out to nyu and let them know that you are waiting to hear back from a few other programs and ask if it would be ok to postpone your decision. Hope that helped and congrats on your offer!
  11. Getting a little ahead of myself here, but am in the same boat and was wondering if people who are re-applying are just going to re-use their old SOPs with some updates or re-do the entire thing? I'm especially curious when applying to the same school/poi as the last cycle...
