Hi, yes I applied to NYU's cognition & perception program and was invited to an interview (POI e-mailed me on Dec 16th). If you heard from most of the other programs that's a really good sign. NYU is the only one I got an interview from so far. Good luck!

Ah, okay! Thanks for letting me know and congrats on the interview!

To anyone who received interviews from Montclair State University - please PM me your POI initials. Thanks!

Hi everyone! I have a question to people who were invited to interview for the Cognition & Perception program at NYU. Is it an official interview with the admission commitee or skype/meeting with the POI alone? Or do you know if there will be a separate official interview after meeting with POI unoficially?

Hi! I was told to pick 3-4 people (including POI) who I'd like to interview with during my time there. I think it's a separate interview with each professor.

Hi all! I have some questions for people who applied to Yale:

1. Which psych department did you apply to?

2. Were you contacted about an interview?

3. If you got an interview, were you contacted by the department/POI? 

Thanks!!

Not sure if this is what you’re referring to, but it is useful for seeing confirmed interview dates!

The title says  "Psychology Grad School Decisions 2018-2019". Is this for this cycle or last year's cycle? Thanks!

It's for this year's cycle. The title is a bit of a misnomer.

On another note, I am stressed af trying to arrange travel to some of my interviews. Ugh :(  All of my programs are FAAAAR away from where I'm currently located and my bank account is already hurting. It might be time to make use of Amtrak and non-flight plans haha.

Are they not reimbursing you for your travel? I know it’s still an expense up front, but I’m curious. I have just one so far but they are reimbursing my flight and putting me up with a grad student. I thought (hope!) that’s standard.

I have only one interview as well so far and they will also reimburse me and take care of hotel expenses. I was hoping this was standard too.

Much more standard in PhD programs than PsyD programs - and most of mine are PsyD :(

This isn't my first application cycle for Clinical Psych PhD programs and I have never been reimbursed for travel expenses. I have two interviews coming up and neither are reimbursing for travel expenses. I guess this isn't something the programs I apply to do!

I've been invited out for one place but they're doing more of a reimbursement thing instead of buying the ticket for me. I thought this would be fine, but I'm having trouble scrounging up the needed cash to eventually get reimbursed! Course, I'm sure I'll find a way.

The interview I have is pretty far from home for me so I’m flying there. But if I get interviews to schools along the East coast, I think I’ll drive there instead. The school where I’m interviewing also offered mileage reimbursement if I drove instead. I feel fortunate.

On a separate note, anyone else looking forward to the end of the winter break to hear from schools?! ?

I figured once it was dec 26 they would start notifying again! I’m going crazy over here waiting for Jan 3/4th for UNL!! 

On a separate note, I’ve been offered one interview for clinical psych PhD and am not being reimbursed but I am able to stay with a grad student.

Congrats on the interview!! I guess schools do differ a lot on the type of assistance they provide if any for interviews. Here’s to hoping for more!

Hi there,

I want to ask you guys a question, what are the things or questions asked during preliminary phone interview for clinical psych program?  Got pretty nervous seeing folks didn’t get in-person interview invitation after phone interview.
