    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    This is a very different scenario but one I can offer... My mom changed her career from Human Resources to psychology about 5 years ago and she went to MiSSP for her psych masters. She did pass her EPPP but yeah, she doesn’t have great things to say about the school/program. She’s in private practice now as a LPP. From her, it’s a joke and most graduates don’t even go on to being in psych careers. I hope this helps!

    Clinical Psychology - Phone offer before Formal Letter

    Congratulations! This was the case for me. My POI called me late morning and then I got the formal offer later that same day. Hope this helps!

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    I would send an email to Jamie Longwell if you still haven't heard! I received my offer the week after interviews. Good luck!

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psych Interview Invites

    Temple is more research focused than clinical, they don’t have a 70 clinical/30 research split. I can’t speak for Harvard or Yale. My original comment was saying even the most clinical focused programs wouldn’t have research taking a backseat to clinical.

    Even the most “clinical focused” PhD programs will be a 50/50 split. Clinical psych phd’s are being trained to be researchers primarily so you’d be better off with a PsyD.

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    I got accepted to a program on 2/21 and my friend got accepted to the same program on 2/27 because they were different PI's. I don't know how Florida does it but it isn't unheard of for PI's to do it on their own terms. Assuming you interviewed, I wouldn't consider yourself rejected at this point.

    My quant score was even lower than this persons (159 V, 5.5 writing) and a 3.2 undergrad GPA. I’ve been accepted to a R1 school for clinical psych PhD. Acting like it’s a number games is very wrong. “Stats” get you through the door but it’s your interviewing skills and general likability that actually gets you offers.

    They wouldn't of wasted their time inviting you to interview if you weren't being considered. I can't speak to this specific university but most programs want diversity in their incoming cohort, not interview weekend. There's a lot of reason why people aren't given offers, despite having all their interviews go really well. Everyone who's invited to interviews is qualified for a spot in the program and a lot of times faculty have to split hairs to actually choose who the best person is. A lot of times it can come down to, "Can I see myself working with this person for the rest of my and their career?" so your personality fit with your mentor can be just as important as research fit.

    I’ve never been so excited for Monday because that’s when the clinical faculty meet for where I interviewed this weekend and my PI said he’d call us Monday night. Aaggghhhhhh

    Post-Bacc Research Position Questions/Advice

    I’m currently doing a post bac in my area of interest! I joined the lab in June 2017 right after college graduation and my PI prefers/expects people to do 2 years in the lab to fully get up to speed and experienced enough w abstracts, presentations and manuscripts. I am being paid (not a lot but I do have great benefits) and I’m lucky that there’s an amazing R1 university 30 mins from my hometown. I also applied for like a million jobs on indeed for research associate positions for a few months. I ended up interviewing for two positions in the same department and went with the one better aligned w my interests. This was my first cycle applying and I have 2 interviews (out of 9 applications). The 2 are for programs that were both originally in my top 3 program choices while applying so I’m pleased with myself and now just keeping my fingers crossed. Hope this helps!!! Editing to add that my GRE Quant score was trash and I was terrified I wouldn’t even make it through the initial review of apps to make it to a potential interview invite.
