  1. Hey - a little late to respond but hopefully this might be helpful for someone! I had prelims with two out of three of my official interview PI's. During the prelims, I was asked questions about my background and experience, and why I wanted to go to graduate school and specifically why that program. During the actual interviews following these prelims, I got to ask more specific questions about what exactly I would be doing as a student in the lab. So for example, if there was any "unused" data for me to work on my analysis/manuscript skills right from the get go, how they saw their lab opera
  2. Lmao even worse I meant MLK day But anywho just checked the portal and my decision was there! Unfortunately rejected...maybe it would help if I knew the national holidays🤔
  3. Hey, I am still waiting for OSU results also! My PI told me that they had to have names of who they were going to offer admissions in to the department by Columbus Day....I figured that meant we would hear back way quicker, but I guess not. I also think the person who was accepted may have been a Cognitive applicant, so I am not positive of any developmental results either way.
  4. If the CU Boulder cognitive interview poster sees this could you PM me pleaseeee Thanks!
  5. If the Vanderbilt poster sees this - could you DM your PI? I applied to the Cog program but my PI is also in Developmental and I haven't heard anything🙃
  6. anyone heard anything similar about when Boulder may be meeting? thanks!
  7. Yes I did! They ended up moving it to just the 8th so I think they were trying to figure out some last minute details. Were you at the interview? I'm applying to SP!
  8. So I just had my first interview day today, and I really saw a variety of everything. For the group sessions, it was a combination of pretty much every program in the department except for Clinical and I saw women with blazers, sweaters, cardigans, and nice blouses, and men with anything from hoodies to suits (at least one of the faculty was even in a hoodie!). One piece of attire really didn't differ from another since we only saw such a small part, I really only think I noticed at all because I was looking so hard. I would say just look put together and wear something you feel like you can b
  9. Hey guys! Now that invites are starting to roll in, I'm wondering what everyone is thinking about wearing for Zoom interviews? I'm personally thinking about non-clinical track programs (as I have heard in the past those tend to be a little more formal), and female since our dress code interpretations can vary so so much! Do we think a nice cardigan/white shirt is nice enough since we will really only be seen chest up? Thanks all!
  10. Is anyone else interviewing for Ohio State this week? I received an email last Tuesday with a formal interview invite saying interviews would take place Jan 7th and 8th with a schedule to come "within the week". I RSVP'd but have yet to receive any sort of schedule/Zoom invites and it is officially a week later (and 5pm in Columbus...) getting nervous they forgot about me lol
  11. well I take that back...looks like a lot of different interview dates maybe it was NGP as well..... *internal screaming*
  12. I'm wondering this too! It looks like the only invites that have been posted have been for IGP not NGP. I applied NGP...hoping that makes a difference for when the invites will be sent out😬 (For the record, I also applied to their Cog Neuro track under the Psych PhD (same PI), and I haven't heard of anyone hearing back about that program either - holding out hope for both lol)
  13. School: Georgia State University (Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience track) Type: PhD Date of invite: December 18 Type of invite: E-mail invite from department chair Interview date(s): Week of January 25-29 sounds pretty flexible but they want everyone to attend the orientation session on the 25th, and then meet with at least three faculty, a session with current students, and a tour of the neuroimaging center during that week. So excited!
  14. I just had my first preliminary interview for Ohio State! If anyone else applied, my PI said they should be sending out formal interview invites within the next week for the second week in January (exact date not specified), and that the department requires them to have their final decisions submitted by Martin Luther King Day😬 Wish every department moved this fast lol
