  1. Would you mind sharing where you are accepted/where your top choice is? Totally understand if the answer is no.
  2. If it wasn't for them saying "As you may know, this process could take a while (sometimes into mid-April)", then I would normally say that you can absolutely follow up to inquire about the status. But since that language was included, it does warrant a little more patience. Which is incredibly frustrating I know. If you know the PI well (as in, you've had several correspondences via e-mail with them and built some sort of rapport beyond just the interview), then it may be appropriate to e-mail them ASAP to inquire about your status. But if you don't already have a rapport with them then
  3. Could you try following up with the department application coordinator as a start, and then if that doesn't work out, reach out to the PI in a week or two? Has there been any activity from other posters on the results section?
  4. Question regarding Clinical/Counseling Psychology PhD waitlists: Are most schools pretty good about notifying a person on the waitlist, if the applicant ahead of them accepts the offer before April 15th? Or have some experienced being left in the dark until April 15th, even if the candidate ahead of them accepted long before then? I am the first alternate on a waitlist at my top choice, and can't seem to stop myself from wondering if they will tell me right away if the candidate ahead of me accepts the slot.... or, if they'll keep me in the dark until April 15th if that candidate accepts
  5. There are many Pros and Cons to living in NYC right now. I just moved away from NYC after living there for around 5 years. I LOVED it there, but it tends to be a love hate relationship. You might hate it while you're there (crowds, trash, cost, smells, loud) but then miss it so much when you leave (it's a knockout of a city and there is always something new to see). Just the nature of the beast. Due to the pandemic, NYC ic cheaper to live right now than it has been in years (however, still incredibly expensive). There is a chance that if you lock in an apartment now, for cheaper, the pan

  7. What kind of PhD program are you entering? That will make a difference. I have answered the question below from the perspective of a research-oriented social sciences PhD: Transferring from one Ph.D. to Another in the U.S. is Not Common or Advisable Due to Relationship with Advisor: As the previous poster said, transferring from one PhD program to another in the U.S. is highly unusual. There are many reasons for this. As the previous poster said, U.S. PhD programs focus heavily on the mentor/advisor-student relationship. Typically, your advisor is funding your tuition from their own grant
  8. Has anyone heard from University of Colorado Denver (Clinical Health Psychology Ph.D.)? About interview dates or anything else?
  9. I totally feel this. I am currently the first alternate at my first choice school (CSU in Fort Collins!) and I am dying to get in. It comes down to one person declining the offer. Knowing that you have a chance is just enough information to cause you to continually overthink it, imo. The limbo effect is so taxing!
  10. Thanks, I appreciate that. What makes you think you aren't good at interviews?
  11. Also, has anyone heard from University of Colorado Denver (Clinical Health PhD)? All I have from them is total radio silence, and radio silence on the GradCafe forums as well.
  12. How does everyone feel about e-mailed a PI, who you've had several good conversations with and have a good relationship with, to ask about what position you are on, on the waitlist? I just got waitlisted at my first choice. PI wrote back post-interview saying I was an incredible applicant and that decisions would be made soon. I thought that was a good sign. Then today, I was notified via generic e-mail from the department that I was placed on the waitlist "Don't take this as a rejection we typically accept applicants off the waitlist every year" and so on. However, no information as to w
