It is with great pleasure that I get to say that I will be attending Bowling Green State University starting this Fall!

Looking at my inbox this week

I just formally accepted my offer to Albany for their I/O psych program! I am very excited to start and work with my advisor who seems great. I could have waited to hear back from the last remain

Has anyone received feedback from Michigan State University, University of Minnesota, University of South Florida, or the University of Calgary?

To the best of my knowledge, no one on here has heard from USF. I'm still waiting to hear back from them and NCSU if anyone has information. 😊

I'm still waiting to hear back from Michigan State but I've assumed it's a rejection at this point.

Literally asking for a friend here, but does anyone know what's up with SLU?

Was just at a recruitment visit and a fellow applicant stated they were visiting (don’t remember if interview or not) within the next couple weeks. So I assume they’ve already made contact with applicants. 

I hope this information is helpful!

Yikes, I don't have a rejection letter so I guess they forgot about me?? 

I have nothing on mine but they emailed me that I was on the waitlist, but I assume you have not gotten any word?

I guess you might be on an alternative waitlist?

Yeah I don’t have any news for SLU on my portal yet. Also have not gotten any email saying I’m on the waitlist. Hopefully no news is good news? 

Yea I will take it that you are on some alternative waitlist. Better than nothing but I am not sure the chances of making it to the next cut.

I know it's probably not a good idea but I feel much more attached to a program that accepted me right away compared to ones that I got off a waitlist. It's not rational but it feels good to a program firsts choice compared to a 9th choice. 

A wise man once taught me that it's okay to not be someone's first choice. 

You'll know the right place when the time comes to decide.

GMU posted rejection letters on their portal on Friday. No emails went out. Go check your application status.

There was no change to my status on the portal, but I did get a generic email yesterday from the program director asking if I still wanted to be considered for the MA program (because I selected it in the application). It was in my spam inbox, so be aware that you may have received an email if you applied as well!

Same exact way I'm feeling. Was the program you were accepted into one of your top programs?

Do you guys think a rocky phone call with your POI can seriously damage your standing within a short list? 

I hit it off really well with my POI at Auburn during my initial interview, and got invited to open house weekend less than a day later. However, I spoke with them on the phone last week about research (pretty general questions/conversation topics) and I felt like it was a pretty rocky conversation from start to finish (i.e., stutters, accidental interruptions, slip ups [on both ends], etc.). I travel there tomorrow, so that conversation is weighing pretty heavily on my mind - especially since my POI won't be there for Open House Weekend. 

Just wanted to know what y'all thought.

Also - I spoke with Dr. Sinclair from Clemson. They've made an initial round of offers, but expect at least one or two people to drop, meaning a few more offers might be given out. They plan on having the cohorts for both the Masters and Doctoral programs sorted out by the end of March.

Well as Psychology majors we know how much weight first impressions carry and it sounds like you made a good first impression. Phone conversations can be hard because you can't read facial expressions or body language, especially if you don't know the person. Plus the conversation probably wasn't as bad as you think it was. I don't think you should be worried. Just focus on preparing for tomorrow and good luck, you'll do great! 

 

Also- thanks for the info about Clemson!

I am sure it was fine. I think they expect some awkwardness for phone talks and know you can be a bit stress out.

I just want to echo what the others have said! The good first impressed is more important than an awkward phone call. It's always easier to only think of the bad parts of the phone call and amplify those, but I'm sure it's not as bad as you remember! Be confident and focus on the next step! It's never too late to leave a new impression! Your in-person impression will be much stronger than a phone call. You're going to do great!!!

Can the person who posted their rejection from USF DM me how they found out? I checked my status and don't see an update.

I did not post the result but I did receive a mass rejection email from a Laura Pierce. Check your junk email, maybe?

I just checked and nothing there. I am assuming I am on some alternative waitlist way down the list of possible candidates.
