  1. Looks like some people have been contacted for phone interviews by PIs...does anyone know if this is the standard? Or perhaps just PIs that have multiple applicants interested in working with them? Wondering if no phone call means your application is no longer in the running.
  2. Hi all! I asked this in Dev psych thread but wanted to reach bigger crowd and hear more opinions. I am contemplating between two sets of GRE scores: V 159/Q 167/AW 3.5 vs. V 155/Q same/AW 4.0. I did NOT expect AW 3.5 for the first set and scheduled a second set asa I got the first scores but apparently I suck at writing stuff under 30 mins. - Undergrad GPA 3.5 from one of the most competitive schools - 3 co-author publications, 1 first-author manuscript in progress (will submit the draft as academic writing sample), 5 first-author posters - Extensive research experien
  3. Hi all, I got accepted to Penn GSE’s Interdisciplinary Studies in Human Development and Columbia Teachers College's Developmental Psychology program. I’ve gotten a GAship from Penn but that’s only for 5 hours per week. No GA as of yet from Columbia but overall, Columbia is going to be financially cheaper than Penn. What do you all know about each school, program, culture and network. Any tips/advice in making a decision?
  4. I saw this type of thread for other majors and I thought I start one here. This in no way is meant to pressure individuals to make decisions but rather help the waitlisters in being able to know if there is hope in getting into the program of choice. I hope this thread will be helpful for everyone who is involved in this hectic process of grad school applications.
  5. Hello! I'm working to narrow down my target list of PhD programs (mix of social and developmental) with plans to apply this coming Fall. I've identified a number of professors at various schools (UK, UT Austin, UBC, Cornell, UCSC, UW Madison) conducting research in areas that align with my interests, however my true (long-term) passion is for teaching and I can't figure out how to evaluate programs' commitments to training in that area. I know all schools have some kind of teaching component, but I'd really love to end up at a program that is dedicated to teacher training excellence. I realize
  6. To preface this; this is a rough draft SOP for one specific program. I don't really like my intro, I want that I'm adopted to be in there somewhere but idk about the rest. I also want to make sure I have a good balance between what I have done and what I want to do, so advice on that would be helpful. And lastly I want to make sure my last two paragraphs are clear enough for why I'm choosing school X and that they wrap up the paper well. As an adopted person, adoption influences my every thought, action, and interaction with my environment. From questioning my identity, to being t
  7. Hi everyone, I have a BA in Education & Linguistics (double major) and will soon be finishing my MA in Learning Disabilities (Special Education) in Tel Aviv University in Israel. While the focus of my degrees is education, I realized during my master's that my true passion lies in developmental psychology. Therefore, I wrote my master's thesis under the supervision of a developmental psychologist and have worked in 3 developmental labs (one at NYU). I have 2 conference presentations (one at SRCD as first author) and 3 papers as first author which are currently under review/in pr
  8. So I've been doing research with a couple of the professors in the specific program that I'm applying to in a couple years, how will this influence my application process? I think it will help that I know their work so well already and they have seen how I work as a RA, but I don't want to feel to confidently about our relationship in terms of my application versus other candidates.
  9. Any advice for emails telling the graduate admissions people and your POI that you're rejecting their offer? Based on funding, location, program ranking, and slightly off research fit, I'm going to reject and reapply after gaining more experience. Not really sure how to word the email.
  10. Hello! So, I have been making myself crazy the past few days deciding which school to choose for my Master's. Here is the deal. I have narrowed it down to Appalachian State and Illinois State. Illinois State offered me a tuition remission and a small stipend (about $420 a month). Appalachian State offered me in-state tuition and a small stipend (about the same as ISU). I know, it seems obvious, but there are other factors. First, ISU is a Developmental Psychology program. My eventual goal is to go into Clinical Psychology, but I am interested in research that merges Developmental and Clin
  11. Hello everyone! I figured I'd start this thread up especially since I haven't seen a similar thread for this cycle yet. I applied to 13 Ph.D. programs: U of Denver, UCONN, Rutgers, Penn State, Boston U, Catholic U, U of Maryland (BC), Temple, U of Houston, U of Pittsburgh, George Mason, and Yale (because I currently work there as a postgrad) Feel free to divulge whatever details you'd like to share here! And once interview rounds start approaching and decisions start pouring in, questions and other related things are more than welcome!

  13. Hi everyone! I've been quietly scouring this site for the last couple years, actually, and now that I've officially applied for the Fall 2017 cycle, I figured I'd start this thread up! Especially since I haven't seen a similar thread for this cycle yet. I applied to 7 Ph.D. programs: - Boston College - NYU - Penn State - Rutgers - UChicago - University of Maryland - USC ... And 1 Master's program (the concentration was in an area my research interests are related to) at Teacher's College. Feel free to divulge whatever details you'd like to share here! And once i
  14. Someone created this last year and I thought it was a great idea to get different perspectives and see how others were coping with their rejections! I think it will be good for us to start one this year, and begin to decompress/start thinking of plan B (or C, or D, E.. etc) after rejections come trickling in. Use the following template if it helps! School: Area/Degree: Rationalization: Comment: Coping tactics:
  15. Hello! I was wondering if anyone here has applied to/heard back from the Psychology department at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. I visited back in October and was told that their "graduate applicant day" is usually held at the end of January. Here we are in the middle of January and I have not yet received an invite (nor have I seen any posts about Brock). Getting nervous!
  16. Is anyone else applying to developmental psych programs this year? If so, what schools? I've applied only to Canadian schools: UofT, SFU, UBC, and McGill. I'm getting a little nervous because I know Canadian schools are notorious for being slow - I'm hoping I don't have to wait until June to find out.
  17. Hi all, I applied to 5 schools: --University of Oregon (Developmental Psychology PhD) --University of Virginia (Developmental Psychology PhD) --University of Hawaii at Manoa (Social Psychology PhD) --Simon Fraser University (Social/Developmental Psychology PhD) --UC Davis (Social Psychology PhD) I'm wondering, has anyone heard back from these schools yet? I'm very nervous, and I've been stressing for a bit now. I'm also a little scared of my GRE score, which I've seen a lot about here. I do have a good GPA, have 5 years of research experience, had a GTF and GRF position at my
