  1. Hi everyone, All my applications are almost done. I applied six programs. I noticed that Northern Illinois University's deadline is Feb 1. Is there anyone who applied or think about applying? Because I have no idea about the university. Every insight is valuable. Because I am on a tight budget and so for I only got one interview invite, so I cannot decide. Any ideas? Cheers
  2. My undergraduate and masters degree in Psych. Also I am a phd student in psych. But I applied mostly to HDFS programs. My priority was mainly to be matched with POI. I am sure there are negative sides to be in HDFS programs. I believe it has a more limited scope and it also is seen as less scientific which I believe not. Also I think it is little bit more challenging to become a professor in psych department. However I would love to hear other views because I am somehow confused too.
  3. I am waiting for Family Social Science phd program. I know that they will send out the invitations around late January and early February.
  4. I think the winter break will be over next week, and they start to review the applications. It can mean that maybe we have wait for another week This is killing me!!
  5. Yes I noticed the same glitch. I could not resist, and sent an e-mail to Georgetown to ask whether they sent official interviews or not. I will let you know if they will reply.
  6. I think Georgetown has sent out the invitations. However I did not get a rejection e-mail. I guess this is the time to stop hoping and move on, right?
  7. You should mention what have you done so far for disadvantageous individuals.
  8. Hi all, I will be traveling from Tulsa, OK to Lansing, MI on Feb 5. Is there anyone going to the interview to MSU. Maybe we can meet!! Please DM me cheers
  9. Hi I see what your concerns about. Of course, I do not know what your POI thinks about this issue but generally professors do not want students who are little clones of themselves. I think it is good that your have some common interests and you have some different backgrounds too. This is your room for improving yourself. You can explain your background and research interest. And then you should explain how motivated you are to learn other aspects of it. It would not be realistic to expect from prospective students to know all about literature or all about analysis. On the other hand, I think it would be smart to read about SEM to at least understand to gist of it. Best of luck
  10. Hi all, Have you heard anything from Temple University Dev/Child Psyc? Cheers
  11. Hey, congrats on this interview. Before starting my application process, I sent e-mails to potential advisors and I asked them whether they accept new students or not. If they are interested in taking students and if they are interested in your research ideas they ask for an informal interview. You can ask your questions in your mind For example you can be curious about the prelim exams, how they lab environment is, what his or her research agenda is, or funding issues. Generally, first you explain your background and what you want to study in grad school etc. Don't worry about it. It is pretty causal. Best of luck!
  12. Hi everyone, Are you planing to go on campus interviews or are you going to set a meeting over Skype? I got an on campus interview on Feb 5- Feb7. I will be actually in US until Feb 3. Do you think should I reschedule my flight and attend the interview? Cheers
  13. According to my intuition, and my understanding from previous graduate school experience, the graduate offices are not that into this process. At the end, professors will decide. So I do not think that it leaves bad impression. They are responsible for answering our questions. Also I do not think that this three sentences create a big issue for you. So chill out. Best of luck!!
  14. Yess I saw it too, but I do not think that it is an official interview. I do not expect to hear anything until the winter breaks ends. Good luck!!
  15. Hey, I applied but I haven't heard anything yet.
