  1. For the usuhs civilian poster- did you email the program admin to inquire& then get an email, or did you receive an email just out of the blue? Thanks and congrats!

  3. Has anyone heard from USUHS, military or civilian?
  4. I completely agree- TOTALLY normal. I actually know more people who got in on their second or third round (for clinical) than their first. It's ultra competitive and sometimes it makes sense, but sometimes it doesn't. You may be the MOST qualified person on paper, but in real life, someone else clicks more with the POI (despite being less "qualified") or you may be less "qualified" but you work in a lab where you've been able to get to know your POI and therefore are at an advantage. I really hope you get in, but it's also important to not take it too personally and remember there are thousands of amazing qualified applicants trying to get into programs as well. I think you just try to keep your head up, and if you don't get in- seek feedback and use it as a motivator to get in next time.
  5. Is the social immediately following the interview? Then you just wear the same thing. If there's time in between, I think you should feel free the wear what you wore to your interview, or something more business casual (I'd avoid jeans). And unrelate but re: suits- Brooks Brothers is having a massive sale rn. Yes, it's expensive, but if you're looking to invest in a nice suit, they have some great deals.
  6. Hey! I didn't apply to Clark so I can't answer your question, but I pm'd you!
  7. Even though it's still early in the day, according to CUDCP, today is the deadline for Uniformed Services University to send out interview invites. I haven't seen any posts, has anyone heard anything? TIA!

  9. Honestly, I’d go with the lab. You’ll make money, you don’t need the masters to get accepted into a phd program, and you will determine a more specific research focus through your work. But that’s just my opinion! You should go with whatever you feel is the best fit for you
  10. I'm not a current student (but would assume that would be TOTALLY fine), but mostly I just want to reply bc you have seriously crushed it with interviews!!!! 9 so far!!!! That's amazing, congrats.
  11. I called admissions, as they originally told me offers will go out last/ this week. They said offers will go out by the end of the month. Hope that helps!
  12. Can the catholic posters pretty please pm me your pi’s? Trying to determine if I need to accept defeat. Much appreciated.
  13. For those wondering, just spoke to admissions at American and was informed "all invitations will go out by the end of the month".
  14. I think if you like your current position, it could be. But I would really suggest trying to get feedback from any rejections as you may be surprised at the level of detail and usefulness. BU has an incredible anxiety lab- so that may be a great place to look. I know less about Boston's resources on aging/dementia- but I do know between BU and Children's, you should be able to get a great position with their research teams based on your experience and track record.
  15. Definitely don't count yourself out yet- UT Austin doesn't send out invites until Feb 1 according to CUDCP and University of Denver is 1/20. I didn't see the others listed, so unsure of their dates... but I would just keep checking results or reach out to the program and ask for a timeline. It's a super competitive process and there are so many wild cards. It's easy to get discouraged, but you still have a ways to go before you should assume the worst. Which, speaking from experience, isn't actually the worst. Let's say you don't get in anywhere, after the season is over, reach out to your top programs and ask for feedback on your application. Some won't respond, some will. Then go with that. I do think working in a relevant lab is key, especially if you can get into one affiliated with a program you're interested in, or that is highly regarded in your target field. You will meet people, make a name for yourself, and for connections. So many people have to go through several cycles- it's an unfortunate truth. BUT! Really don't count yourself out just yet!!! Best of luck!
