Hi everyone, I'm planning to reapply to IO Psychology PhD programs, not sure exactly when, but hopefully next year or in the next couple of years. Is there anyone here who was rejected the first time they applied, reapplied again, and then got accepted? If so, what did you do more of, or less of, or really focus the second time around? Did you apply the year right after or waited a couple of years? Did you get your Masters' degree first and then applied to PhD programs? I would love to get some advice and insight! Thanks in advance!
Hello, I have some research experience, but not a whole lot. But I do have a good amount of work experience, extracurricular activities, and volunteer experience that's related to my major and the field I want to study in a PhD program. Are there any tips on how to incorporate everything and make me look like a good candidate even though I may not have as much research experience but a ton of everything of everything else that can translate to good research experience? Through my work experience I definitely have some research interests in mind by the way. Thanks in advance!
Hi everyone! I have a 45 minute phone interview coming up on Friday for an I/O PhD program and I'm looking for some general advice and feedback on my preparation so far. My current list of prep items includes: re-read personal statement to be able to expand on it/refer back to the "why I'm interested in the field" question create elevator pitch about my writing sample (research proposal- it was only a term paper so it wasn't intended to be executed as a full experiment/study, but it represents my topical interests well) go over POI's recent papers/faculty page and get familiar with the general outline of that info look through program website for curriculum and see if I have any questions about that My questions for you lovely people: Am I missing any critical step that helped you prep for a phone interview? How formal have phone interviews been for you? Are they more standard questions about your qualifications/experience, or did it seem more intended to determine personal fit? What types of questions did you ask/wish you had asked/would recommend asking as a current student? Right now I'm planning on asking about summer opportunities (internships, continuing to work on a professor's research, working on independent projects, etc.), and what types of projects might be coming up in this POI's lab soon. I appreciate the time you guys spent to read this! Really, any experiences or insight about what to expect would be super helpful.
