  1. Cross-posting from the waitlist thread: When would you guys say it's appropriate to contact a school post-interview to see if you're on a waitlist (if at all)? If so, would you recommend contacting the DCT, your POI, or both? It's been a little over 2 weeks after a few of the interviews I had and I've seen some offers extended from those programs, but have not been rejected either. Am wondering if I could be on the waitlist at at least one of those few, but none of the programs have contacted me about it. Should I reach out, or wait more?

  3. What I've done is familiarized myself with the methods the mentor seems to use frequently and the types of measures they typically use (survey, psychophys, interview, fMRI, cognitive tasks, etc) and come up with a couple of ideas synthesizing my research interests with those methods. I'd air on the side of thinking about a couple of broad study ideas and being willing to think on the fly or riff on ideas your PI might bring up. Most probably won't expect you to have all your measures sorted out, but you should probably have somewhat of an idea what you could use if they ask. For example, if yo

  10. I don't think they'd come across as unprofessional, especially if most of your ear piercings have simple studs or bars in. Based on the things I've seen, as long as you stick to minimal jewelry, or only one larger/flashier earring per ear you should be fine. If you have longer hair and wear it down, the people you meet may not see or notice them all anyway. I have several ear piercings as well and am planning to leave them all in!
  11. If anyone is wondering about Vanderbilt, I just spoke to the program coordinator there and they said that the first round of interview invites (Clinical PhD) have already been extended. No official rejections yet, but that sounds pretty definite.
  12. Sucks to hear, but good to know. Thanks for posting!
  13. Would either of the UVA posters be willing to DM me? I’m curious about how the short list emails were worded/sent. Thanks in advance!
  14. I read somewhere that if you’re caught off guard, you should express enthusiasm but say you have an appointment coming up/another commitment and ask if you can schedule a time to chat. It’s never happened to me, so YMMV. You could also just let it go to voicemail and then call back when you’ve had a few minutes to prepare. Applicants have busy lives, and more so than ever people don’t pick up calls from numbers they don’t recognize. Preparing some baseline answers to those tough questions is a good idea, but you probably don’t need to feel obligated to take or continue the surprise call right
  15. Happy New Year and new decade! Here’s hoping we all close out the next decade with a refined sense of who we are, where we want to be, and what we value most in life (And doctoral degrees!)
