    Psychology Interview Debriefing

    Hi everyone! I have my first interview this Tuesday and Wednesday and wanted to create a place where we can debrief after the interviews. We can share anything from what everyone wore to actual questions and itineraries, as well as hopes and fears post-interview. Hopefully comparing notes will help ease anxieties!
  2. Hi all, I applied to the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the Media Lab for Fall this year. Just wondering about any insights or experiences about the interview process during Jan/Feb. Potential questions, presentations, etc? It must be completely different among each group but I'm curious about what other students have to say.
  3. Got a Phd Interview invite from Northeastern University. Had applied for CS Phd, getting interviewed by non-PoI who works in a completely different area (High Performance Computing). I have an electrical undergrad and the prof has appointments in both ECE and CS departments. Any thoughts on what it could be about?
  4. I just got an email from Johns Hopkins asking when I am available for a phone interview. Has anyone done this interview yet? What kinds of questions do they ask? What should I do to prepare? Interview's make me nervous so any input would be greatly appreciated.
  5. In other majors, I saw that many departments (psychology, sometimes sociology) are interviewing the prospective students before admitting them to the Ph.D. program. In political science, is this a common practice? Have you ever been interviewed before by an admission officer or by your POI?
  6. As far as I can tell the recruitment event is an extremely important part of actually securing an admission offer after you've already gotten screened on skype. The University of Florida MCS department candidate visit for PhD applicants is 21-23 Feb, and I would love to go. Problem is, even though I'm a domestic applicant, I currently live outside the US. UF doesn't offer funding assistance for international travel. My unpaid internship doesn't exactly give me a travel stipend, if you know what I mean, but I think it would be a mistake not to go! Would it be appropriate to ask if they could cover a domestic leg of the trip? I'd be willing to spring for 2 flights if they could pay for the third!

    Interview Attire?

    I have been invited to interview for 3 schools with no choice in the dates and unfortunately, the first interview is my first choice program (Applied Developmental Psych at Fordham). I feel like I have a fairly decent grasp on how to prepare and feel comfortable with the interview process itself, but I have no idea how to dress. I have read so many conflicting reports ranging everywhere from business casual to "it would have been embarrassing to not be in a suit". As a female, the breadth of outfit types is stressing me out more than anything else! Also, what can I expect from an open house (as opposed to an interview) and a department reception the night prior to interviews?
  8. How is the application reviewed in the interview phase of EECS MS/PhD at UC Berkeley? If interviewed and accepted into the program, would the interviewer (by default) be the PhD supervisor? Or, is the student first accepted into the program and needs to find a research supervisor later? If the students are first accepted into the program and not by a specific advisor, how would funding be handled?
  9. I'm leaving for an interview weekend this weekend for a microbiology phd program and I haven't been able to find recent grants that a POI I'll be interviewing with has currently. Is it inappropriate to ask about what grants she has funded right now since that is connected to how I'll be paid to be in that lab? I'm only asking because a lot of her publications are from a while ago and I want to know whether she has enough active grants (and therefore active projects) in my field of interest but I'm worried that it will come across as me asking about money too early on. Thoughts?

    How to prepare for an interview

    Hey, Was just wondering if anyone could offer any advice as to what kind of questions an applicant can expect if offered an interview. Haven't been offered one yet, but figured it would be best to prepare sooner rather than later. Not entirely sure how to go about it, tho.
  11. Hi all! I have my first Skype interview this Wednesday with a professor that reached out to me. I didn't know about him until he sent me an email, but he thought my research was good and thought I would be a good fit in his lab. Since I am a nervous wreck like everyone else seems to be right now, I have many questions: What usually happens in Skype interviews? What should I prepare for? How should I prepare for this? What questions should I have ready to ask the professor? How should I dress? Is business causal okay? How I make myself feel and look less nervous during the interview? Any advice would be helpful! Thanks in advance!
  12. I got invited to Michigan State's BMS interview weekend from the 10-12th of January and I'm looking forward to it, but they ask each interviewee to do an 8 minute presentation in front of current BMS faculty, grad students, and current applicants. Anyone have any tips for this? I already made my presentation and sent it in, but I just wanted to see if anyone had an idea of what the presentation is going to be like. Thanks!
  13. I was invited to interview for a PhD Counseling program and just received the agenda for the two day interview. On that agenda is a time slot that says "timed writing response". I have never heard of such a thing at an interview! Has anyone ever had to do a writing prompt for their interview and if so, any insight on what the topic may be so I can practice/brainstorm? I appreciate it!
  14. Business PhD Interviews 2019, any replies?

    How soon do I apply for Post-Bac's?

    So.... I applied to PhD programs in Neuroscience this year and have not heard back from any schools yet. I have the sinking feeling I will not receive any interviews. Maybe something will come through last minute, but I cannot be sure. I have previously interned at NIH and would probably apply to their Post-Bac program. So now the thing is, I don't know how soon to give up hope of hearing back from my graduate programs and to pursue the Post-Bac program. I live far from DC so moving and housing is a big issue.
  16. It's probably been asked a million times, but I was wondering if all accepted Graduate school applicants are interviewed? If I don't receive a call or email for an interview, does that most likely mean I didn't get in to the PhD and Masters programs I applied to?
  17. Trying to see if anyone has heard from St. Augustine! I had my interview two weeks ago and was told I should expect an update between 2-3 weeks from the admissions board via email. I thought that was a little odd due to the fact that the deadline is dec 15th. Wanted to see if anyone else is waiting to hear if they got in!
  18. Hello All, I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm posting this in the right area. I have an upcoming group interview for the M.S.ED in School Psychology at LIU. Does anyone have experience with group interviews for graduate school? What kind of questions are expected? Or is there a previous post with useful information? Thanks in advance!
  19. Hey Everyone! I wanted to see if anyone else is applying to Spring 2019 at Hunter for social work? I applied and am having my in-person interview next Monday. Really nervous! Any tips or past experiences? Thanks!
  20. Hello everyone. I have been looking around online and some of the posts in GC but none seems to give any real answers. From what I learned, UK applicants usually go through some form of interviews, while most US applicants don't. But at the same time, there are some applicants that mention (among US's) having an interview (Notre Dame, SUNY). If this a rare scenario, or does it entirely depend on individual applicants? No where in the admissions page can I find this info. Thanks! Edit: I'm specifically talking about English. It seems some of the comparative literature folks have to show their capacity with foreign language :S
  21. Hey everyone! I got my first interview offer and I'm soooo excited!! Please feel free to post your interview offers, updates, and acceptances when they arrive! Optional info you may want to include in your post: What schools you applied to in California Schools you've received interview offers from and when they arrived Feedback on your interview and questions they asked you Any other info you want to add
  22. Hi All, Anyone applying for the NCSU Master of Analytics program this year (2018). How long does it take to get an update after we submit the application?
  23. Got my first Skype interview request from a POI finally! I'm so scared because I have no idea what to expect. Will I have to answer technical questions or it's just an exchange on research interests? Also, will he ask me usual recruiting questions strength/weaknesses, life goals...?

    Dissertation Participants Needed!

    RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS NEEDED Have you worked with a pregnant therapist? At the time of her pregnancy, did you have no biological children? At any point in your life have you felt distress about the decision to, timing of, or your ability to have children? I am a doctoral student at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA. I am looking for volunteers for my dissertation study on the experience of women who have worked with a pregnant therapist, and who had no biological children at the time of the therapist’s pregnancy. What is the purpose of this study? This project offers participants the opportunity to share their story and contribute to a better understanding of how childless women experience working with a pregnant therapist. Results will help mental health care providers better serve their clients. Who can participate? Participants must (1) be female, (2) have worked with a therapist for at least 6 months who was pregnant at some point during treatment, (3) have had no biological children at the time of the therapist’s pregnancy (step children and later pregnancies are OK), (4) have experienced some degree of distress about their childlessness at any time before or during the pregnancy (i.e. considered whether to have children, thought about factors affecting potential pregnancy, such as fertility, life circumstances, and/or timing). How long will it take? You will be asked to complete a brief online questionnaire (5 minutes), review and sign a consent form (3 minutes), and participate in an audio-recorded interview (1 hour), during which you will be asked questions about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences related to being in treatment with a pregnant therapist. Where do I have to go? The researcher will meet you at a private location that is convenient for you. If you are located outside of the Bay Area, the interview can also be conducted via Skype. Will my identity remain confidential? With the exception of a signed consent form, which legally must be stored in the confidential files at the Wright Institute, all identifying information will be removed from other documentation and will not be included in the final results. If you or someone you know is interested in participating in this study, please contact me: Miriam Adrianowicz madrianowicz@wi.edu 510-205-6801 Dissertation Chair: Beate Lohser, PhD. blohser@wi.edu.
  25. I applied to a few schools in early January and was accepted to my reach school and accepted an offer. I just got an interview invite for one if the applications today and I'm wondering what I should do. Should I just do the interview and see what they have to say? I'm worried that of it goes well I'll get an offer and at this point I don't see myself really taking it over the first program. Any advice welcome
