  1. This happened to me and I got accepted the next day! So I would consider it a very good sign
  2. University of Utah: 2/6-2/8 Florida State University: 1/30-2/2 Tulane: 2/9-2/10
  3. Has anyone heard from the University of Hawaii? They're the last school that I'm really waiting to hear back from and I'm on pins and needles!
  4. YAYYYY is your first interview with Utah, because they were my school A and were so so kind about helping me figure out those travel arrangements
  5. Hey this literally just happened to me! I spoke to the coordinator at school A and told them about my situation and they said that it would be fine to fly me to school B instead of a return flight home. I informed school B that I would only need them to pay for my flight home because of the other school (which worked out well since school B had limited funds for my travel). It never hurts to ask!
  6. If you want you could always just switch it out for a retainer for the interview season, that's what I did. I had a septum piercing for three years that closed overnight so I'd be careful about just pulling out the jewelry
  7. Yeah I couldn't imagine wearing jeans, but for everything but clinical/counseling I've heard that business casual (leaning towards business formal) is perfectly ok! A grad student told me that you should wear conference appropriate clothes
  8. I agree with andhowdoesthatmakeyoufeel, I get that it may be frustrating to push back your life plans by a couple of years but you're already way ahead of the game. I would seriously consider doing a postbacc research position in a lab with similar interests to yours for two years and really focus on increasing those hard skills and getting your name on some posters and presentations. I applied to PhD programs right out of undergrad and the question I continuously got was "why do you think you're ready when everyone else has put in more work than you" so put in the work and you'll be fine, app

  12. I definitely feel that, I'm also a racial minority and the child of immigrants. So when I decided to become a psych major there was this implicit understanding that I would go on to be a doctor in some way. In my first round of applications I was still in undergrad and thought I wanted to do clinical psych but I wasn't really sure and I think that the people who interviewed me realized that. Since then I've narrowed in on the work that I want to do and the population that I want to do it with and I'm pretty excited at the way things are going right now. I kind of feel like I had to fail before
