  1. Hey guys, so I applied to 6 graduate schools in the US as an international student, so far I've only heard back from one (rejection). Should I start asking for updates or do graduate schools usually just get back to international students late.
  2. I received a mail from a faculty member requesting for a Skype interview. Can someone help me out with what kind of questions I am to expect from them? What are the things I need to look up at beforehand? This is the first interview I have received so I would much appreciate if ya'll could drop some tips. Thank you!!!
  3. Hey all! I didn't see many forums for the counseling and other related master's and I've been obsessively starting to check my email for interview invites so put yours below! School Name: Program: (MHC, MSW, MFT, etc.) Date invite received: Interview date: if you want
  4. Hi! I applied to 8 MFA programs. I have been granted interviews from 4 of them so far, as a finalist. I have been accepted to two and am still waiting on the others. I have had 3 interviews so far, all skype. I am wondering how much weight does the 15 minute skype interview actually have? How much does it affect your chances? What are the most important factors in a school's decision? Is it the overall application (statement, portfolio, recommendations) or does the interview have a significant spot in determining the decision? Help! I'm freakin' out
  5. Any advice on what to wear to an interview? Especially if pant suits are really unflattering to your figure?
  6. Hi! I am a recent Master of Public Health graduate on the search for jobs. I had my second interview for a position I really want a little over two weeks ago (let me know if it would be helpful for you to know what the position was). I sent my interviewers a "Thank You" note immediately after I interviewed with them . They replied back thanking me for my time and for interviewing for the position and that I should hear back from a team member after they have completed the interviewing process. During the interview, they said that I should expect to hear back in a few weeks either way. I have n
  7. Hey everyone! Just wanted to start this nerve-wracking thread! The first interview for the HSS @ U Penn came in today! Post results here, should you feel inclined, and this can be general discussion on Acceptances/Rejections/interviews as well. Good luck to everyone & may the odds be always in our favor!
  8. Hey guys, I have a question about conducting interviews through video or voice calls in social science (qualitative) research. My friend from another department did one interview through Skype video chat because the interviewee resided in a different country. However the supervisor told her to do do another one and explained that in social science interviews should always be conducted face to face. It is less effort from the student to conduct interviews online compared to when they are done through face to face interactions and for that reason only the final grade of the thesis
  9. Anyone familiar with CBU's protocol or how they go about interviews? They also indicated on the email they would have interviewees write a writing sample. Any feedback is appreciated!! :)
  10. Hi everyone! I've seen a few posts that mention group interviews and I'm wondering what people's experiences of them have been like. I have one coming up (at Sacred Heart) and really don't know what to expect. I assumed it would be like a structured group conversation, but I've seen people mention being asked to work on projects together on the spot. Just trying to prepare and any info about what approaches schools take to this format would be helpful. Thanks!
  11. Does anyone know if UPenn has send out all interview invites for linguistics graduate admissions yet? Do they notify students of rejection too?
  12. Hey - anyone heard from UC-Berkeley, University of Chicago, Columbia University, or UPenn for psychology PhD interviews?
  13. Hello, I am finishing my bachelor's a year early and I have a late birthday, so I'm only 20 years old, and will be 20 during interviews. Do you think program directors of programs based around people (counseling/social work, etc.) would take my age as a negative or am I over thinking? Thanks
  14. Curious to see if there are any other Lewis & Clark Marriage & Family Therapy applicants on here who have heard back. I was just offered an interview yesterday! I'm not sure what to expect. Anyone know how group interviews generally work in such a program?
  15. 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
  16. Someone made a similar thread last year just to have a separate thread for neuroscience PhD applications for the 2018 cohort. Hopefully it'll help reduce a little bit of the interview/decisions anxiety if we're all in the same boat!
  17. To anyone who T.A.'s, teaches, or took a gap year and taught high school in between, I have a few questions. I'm taking a gap year between my MA and my PhD and hoping to teach high school in the interim and I have my first teaching interview tomorrow. To anyone out there who knows the process -- I've interviewed for a lot of things but figure that this one will be a quite different set of questions -- what should I prepare or be prepared to answer in an interview for a job teaching AP English to high school (charter school) students? i.e., do I need to have a lesson prepared, a statement of te
  18. Hey everyone, I figured we should start a thread where we could report interviews and admissions results for 2018. That way, it won’t get buried in the other threads!
  19. Hi Grad Cafe, I've been selected as a top 3 candidate for full time position in an English department at a community college. I have a final interview with the college president and the dean in a few weeks. Any tips on how to prepare for this? They didn't provide any extra info. I did a teaching demonstration and 60 minutes worth of question and answers in the initial interview. Like many people in the field, I'm feeling a bit desperate for this. It's my only successful application, and I'm terrified of my future if I don't get the job. Thanks for any help!
  20. A place to check on decisions, share excitement, and commiserate on bad news.
  21. I realize the application season is far from over for many of you, but I felt it's a good time to be retrospective. I wanted to share some of my anecdotes and qualitative data in hopes that it will help those in the future. Before I begin: this is based on my subjective experience and is not meant to be interpreted as prescriptive. I applied to a combination of I/O Psych and Measurement programs, thus this may be less relevant to some of you- I don't think that will be the case. Here are some thoughts looking back: Grad Cafe The beauty of Grad Cafe (though cliché) is the jo
  22. I am stuck in an airport with nothing else to do and not enough WiFi for Netflix so I figured I would start an advice thread on all things Statistics PhD admissions that I have learned from the process. I wanted to share all the things I wish I knew when I was applying. Anyone else feel free to add to it. I wrote this from a general statistics perspective but some of this probably will be similar in biostats and perhaps even math. Admissions - Where to apply The best indicator of how you will do is looking at the past profiles that are most similar to you. You will unlikely fi
  23. Hope interviews are going well for everybody! Those who have had interviews- did you reach out to faculty afterwards to thank them? I had some really good interviews with some of my faculty meetings and would like to thank them/talk more about some of the things that came up, but I'm not sure if this is standard or would be out of place.
  24. Does anyone have advice for preparing for interviews with the MIT-Harvard HST MEMP program? I know that they are technical and serious compared to other programs but I am wondering if there is anything I should prepare beyond having solid technical knowledge/understanding of my research experiences and being prepared to explain and defend my research proposal. Thanks for your help!
  25. Has anyone heard back from any of their School Psych Masters programs? I've applied to Appalachian State and also University of Denver.
