I contacted Rutgers University. It sounds like all interviews have been extended.

Which campus and program?

Yeah...I had a POI tell me in October that they weren't planning on taking a student, but to apply anyway. I decided not to apply, and saw on here that they ended up scraping funding together to make an offer to someone else :~)

Another common thing is that multiple faculty may want to take on new grad students in the same year. If there are 2 spots and 4 faculty, certain faculty may take priority early in the process, but the committee may decide later on that someone else has better candidates to choose from.

This is how it works at my current school. The department has a pool of money and the professors without tenure have priority in order to help them achieve tenure. After that it goes by who has students currently. My current mentor still has two current grad students while others had only one, or had just graduated their last and so told me that it would be unlikely they could take on another unless no one else wanted one, or they could scrape up funding from other sources to fund one. They did not think that would be likely.

I had a skype interview way back in December and haven't heard back since. Should I email my POI asking the status and if so, how should I word the email? HELP. Im so nervous.

Has anyone who got a phone call invite from East Tennessee State received the follow up email they mentioned yet? They called almost a week ago, and I was waiting for an email but knew I had a scheduling issue so I sent them an email letting them know I was very interested in interviewing and asking about alternate days or methods of interviewing, and still no word..

They just lost a faculty member due to brain cancer and are having a memorial this week. I think that's what the delay is due to.

Kinda strange. Very few skype calls have popped up on the results page for UPenn, but this email is an invitation to a campus interview. I suppose Columbia was similar, though.

I thought Columbia haven't sent out invites yet? Clinical anyway...

Really. For what programs. What departments. 

They replied above - for PhD Clinical Psych.

I do wish folks would specify. Waiting on the PsyD program :(

Yeah I was on that page, read a PM telling me differently, then responded without reading the next page. I need to stop reading this forum on my phone. Knowledge is not power. It’s just anxiety here

Oh, so did UPenn send out all their invites then? Was this for clinical or something else?
