    Post-Interview Anxieties, Worries, Thoughts, Comments, etc.

    I'm sorry you don't feel the interview went well These questions have not been asked of me just yet but for the least favorite part of research, I have always thought that the length of time it takes to see a research project through from beginning (idea) to end (dissemination) is the most difficult as it takes a lot of patience and perseverance. With this question, I feel that they want to make sure you are aware of what you're getting into with a PhD program. For the weakness questions, give an honest response but also be sure to let them know what you're doing to overcome this potential weakness. I've heard of people who say that they have no weakness or come up with a weakness that is an obvious way of making you look really good- don't do this. They can easily see through this. Some "good" weaknesses I've heard of have always been paired with ways to improve them; organization, stretching your time too thin, etc.

    Waitlist and Help Me Decide Thread 2019

    I guess that depends on whether they are waiting to hear back from a top choice. If they are holding on hope to get in to their top school, they may then hold off from making a decision for somewhere they have already been admitted to. I think it might be normal to take a bit to make a decision between 2 programs or wait to hear from a top choice if there is actually a chance that they may reach out. I think after visiting a program for interviews, you get a pretty good sense of whether you'd like to attend based on the program itself, faculty, students, location, and of course funding! No reason to hold on to an offer you know you won't take but we'll see!

    Those are pretty strong words! I'm sure most POIs would be aware of their words before sending out emails. I guess only time will tell but I would be curious if anyone receives a decision that didn't match with an obvious email/communication remark, such as "see you in the fall".

    Waitlist and Help Me Decide Thread 2019

    At one of the schools where I interviewed, One of the students mentioned being waitlisted and not getting admitted until April. Gave me some hope! I am currently waitlisted at UVA (one of my top 3 choices) but it was pre- interview. Not sure how those work. I am also waiting to hear back from another top choice where I interviewed this past week, and I'm interviewing Monday with my third top choice. I guess it'll come down to the ones where I interviewed. Not sure I actually have a chance with UVA.

    I can definitely sympathize with the paranoia of analyzing every detail of the thank you replies. I had a POI at a top choice say that he was "excited" to get back to me soon to inform me of their decision. You wouldn't be excited unless you were sharing a positive decision, right? 😫

    When you go to an interview, hear your POI talk about their research, and you just know that the match with your interests is PERFECT!

    Post here to get your worries off your chest

    Worries: I had my first interview the second week of January and although I thought it went super well, I actually got rejected from it which now makes me second guess everything I thought I had going for me. Go away imposter syndrome!! Excitement: I have two interviews this weekend and two more coming up the last week of Feb (which I just found about two days ago!). Out of these 4, 2 of them are top choices! I'm hoping that my experience and feedback from the first interview will ultimately benefit me. Gratitude: 5 interviews and 1 waitlist out of 9 programs was not something I was expecting at all! Very grateful 🙏

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Applicants (PhD, PsyD)

    I just called James Madison University regarding their Combined Clinical and School Psychology PsyD program. They mentioned they will be reviewing applications today and should be reaching out for interviews between this afternoon and tomorrow. The person I spoke to also mentioned that the process took a little longer than usual this year because they received a higher number of applicants compared to previous years and that this is by far one of the most competitive years.
