    Fall 2019 Psychology - Where are you going?!

    So happy to report that I received a generous funding package and will officially be heading to University of Nebraska-Lincoln!

    Moving expenses?

    I definitely intend to get rid of most of my furniture. I think the only big pieces I'm bringing with me are my bed and a bookcase that my dad made me. Everything else is replaceable. I am a first-generation college student, so undergrad was difficult to navigate. Grad school is completely unheard of-- I had no idea that something like a moving stipend even existed. I will definitely ask about. Thank you all so much for your input! This is very helpful.

    Moving expenses?

    Hi all-- I come from modest means and live paycheck to paycheck. I've been accepted, but my problem now is-- how on earth do I get myself there? I am waiting to hear finalization on an assistantship for paying for school, but the moving expenses (CA to NE) are substantial for me. Are there creative solutions that you all have used or can think of?

    Well, I spoke it into existence. Rejected from my top choice today. That one stung.

    2019 Waitlist Thread

    I feel this so, so much. I'm in grad school purgatory over here with no news from my top choice, but also no rejection. Just reject me already so I can accept my 2nd choice offer.

    I did interview via skype, but it was way back in November. That's why I'm so perplexed. I thought the interview went great too. My POI and I really clicked, and she set me up with a skype talk with one of her grad students, which also seemed to go really well.

    Just sitting here.. still waiting to hear back from NCSU (my #1). I haven't been rejected, but I've heard literal radio silence. I presume rejection, but I'd like the official notice before accepting an offer at my #2 school. I emailed the grad coordinator, she said she would reach out to the chair and get back to me.. then she never emailed me back. Feeling restless. Just send me the rejection already! Do we think maybe I'm sitting in waitlist purgatory since I haven't been rejected yet this late in the game? I have heard from all other PhD program I've applied to at this point.

    So jk. Just literally got an email to check the portal at UT-A. Big fat denial. Wow, that's kind of a crappy way of telling people. Super callous!

    How's everyone doing here?

    Uggggggh. I'm feeling so frustrated by this whole process. I applied to the master's program at my undergraduate institution (CSUS), and the deadline for letting us know is March 15th. No word. I finally got information about the master's program at CSULB, and it looks like I passed the university level check and am currently "under review" by the department. Face palm. Literally NOTHING. NADA. NO RESPONSE. from UT-A. Portal still says "in review". I reached out to my POI about a month ago and got no response. I assume rejection, but I just want them to say it. I was accepted into my 2nd choice school (which I am amazingly grateful for), but my 1st choice is still just completely MIA. No change in portal. Reached out to the grad coordinator and let them know that I was accepted into another program, but that they were my top choice on Monday, got a response back that they would check with the chair and respond back to me, and now silence for 2 full days. NOTHING. This process is just terrible and super un-fun.

    Fall 2019 Psychology PhD Applicants!

    I reached out to a couple of my schools POIs and they let me know individually that I wasn't selected. The portals for those schools haven't updated.

    how will three withdrawals impact my application

    I have a total of 26 from my community college years. I got into a PhD program. That's just my personal story, but I thought it would be helpful just to tell you that it is possible.

    NC State?

    I actually just did this. I reached out to the grad coordinator last week, but haven't heard anything. Ugh. The one thing that keeps me thinking it isn't over yet is that someone put a rejection on the results page about three weeks ago, so maybe if I haven't been rejected yet, perhaps I'm still in it.
