  1. I'm posting about this literally just an hour before I'm supposed to be having a phone interview for the Hunter College msw application. It was scheduled only just yesterday, I got the email asking to pick a time and I let them know I would be needing a skype interview because I currently live in Chicago. They emailed back saying I would have to just have a phone interview and picked this time for today. I was really shocked because I thought they only did in-person and Skype group interviews and hadn't ever read anything here or anywhere else about phone interviews. I'm unsure if it's a solo or group interview, I also am unsure of how long it will last. Don't really know what to expect and just wanted to ask if anyone has ever had or heard of phone interviews from Hunter?

    Structured Phone Interview

    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.
  3. Hello everyone! Happy application / interviewing season! I recently got an email from Teachers College asking me for a 15 minute phone interview this week. (I'm applying to a Masters in Counseling). In my past experiences, 15 minutes it not a very long time to get to know a candidate, and it probably falls under more of a screening interview. That being said, should I expect an admission decision some time after the phone interview or is this more of a screen to see if they want to interview me in person later? Any experience with this? Thank you so much for all your help!
  4. I had a quick question. About 3 weeks ago, I had an interview with my POI -- Virginia Commonwealth University, Social Psychology, PhD. I have not heard back since. During the phone interview, she told me that I should hear back about the on campus interview that next week. Would it be appropriate at this point to contact her? I just wanted to ask if I have been removed from the pool of possible students. I'm not sure if I'm just getting worked up too soon or not. Thanks!

    Phone Interview advice?

    Does anyone have any advice for this sort of thing? I'm terrified that I'll stutter or we'll get cut off, or I'll forget everything I've ever learned because I'm terrible at talking on the phone and keeping my concentration. I plan on getting out of my house (because I have terrible service, and because I'll get distracted too easily), and maybe driving somewhere and sitting in my car. But any advice on what NOT to do in a phone interview?
  6. I'm looking for some feedback on a particular situation: A woman from admissions with whom I have been in contact sent me an email: "I am writing to request a phone interview to further discuss your application. Please let me know if you are available to talk this afternoon at 4:30pm or 5pm." Unfortunately, I didn't see the email until it was 6pm her time because I am currently living in Korea and due to the time difference I received it at about 11:30 pm my time. Does it strike anyone else as strange that she would request an interview that very same day? I wrote her back reminding her that I am living abroad (it's stated on my resume so I assume she would have known), apologized for not responding sooner and recommending another time. She has yet to contact me again regarding the interview! I'm really hoping that I screw up this chance. But at the same time it seems a little unprofessional to request an interview on 6 hours notice even if we were in the same country.
