  1. You are not alone! This happened to me 2 years ago, and it really sucked. I’ve spent the last two years working as an RA in a lab I love and developing my research goals. I also applied to a few less competitive schools. This cycle, things are going better. Good luck! You will be okay.
  2. Hey! I'm so sorry to hear that. This is my second time applying, so I feel you. It'll be alright. I wanted to ask, how do you know that you were rejected from Northwestern? Did they send out rejections or did you ask? Thanks.
  3. Has anyone received an official invite from UCLA Cognitive Psychology? I received an invite for the formal interview from a POI last Wednesday but haven't gotten an official department email. I already thought it was too good to be true, so it's making me nervous! Should I follow up with the POI or wait a bit more? Thanks!
  4. I got an email from a POI saying that I got an interview. The interview dates are Jan 29-30, and the Cognitive area met earlier this week to discuss apps. I haven't gotten an official notice, but they are sending them out soon!
  5. FYI I heard a response a few hours after I posted this! Thanks for the replies everyone
  6. Has anyone who got an interview at UCI INP gotten a confirmation about their interview date? We were asked to choose one, but I wasn't sure that meant it was set in stone. Thanks!
  7. Hi everyone, I’m looking to apply to grad school to study cognitive neuroscience, but hopefully with a developmental lens. I’ve worked with older populations as well as infants and young people, and I think it’s fascinating to see the progression of cognitive functions. I’m primarily interested in individual differences in mental health, memory, and decision making. Does anyone have any suggestions for good programs? Right now I’m thinking of applying to NYU, Columbia, Stanford, UChicago, and Northwestern, but I really need some “safety” schools. My only limitations for programs are that
  8. Hi everyone! Any advice on updating my recommenders that I haven’t been accepted to any programs? I believed that my recommendations were strong, but after being rejected this cycle, I’m starting to doubt if that’s true. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Hi! Has anyone heard from the Caltech Social and Decision Neuroscience Program? I know they had a later deadline than most schools, but I'm not sure if that means they send out interviews later, as well. Thanks!
  10. I personally didn’t hear from UCLA, but there are 6 responses on the Results page, 3 from Dec 20 and 3 from Jan 7. It seems like there were 2 waves of interview emails. Hope that helps! Otherwise, I’m not sure. Good luck
  11. Hi! I saw a few Columbia rejections on the results page... can anyone tell me which concentration they were rejected from? I'm still waiting it out.
  12. Hey! If the person who was rejected from NUIN via email (as seen on the results page) is reading, can you let me know when that happened? Did you email them or did they send out an email? I’m just nervous lol let me know !!
  13. Hi all! I've been reading this forum for the past hour, so I figured I'd also share my applications and everything. I honestly didn't expect responses to be out so soon. I just discovered this site today after friends and family were bugging me about my applications. Now I'm *stressin out*!! I haven't heard back from anywhere yet, and it's nice to see that others are in the same boat. Most of the interviews people have gotten are for schools I didn't apply to ? Here's a list of where I applied: University of Washington (Neuroscience), UC Berkeley (Neuroscience), Stanford (Biosciences
