If the person who posted their interview for UNC is on here, who was your POI?

I would also like to know if possible.

And what kind of interview is it?  Trying to figure out if they have a standard departmental interview days in Jan or Feb or not...  

I'm the poster! It's a skype interview invite from the POI

Mind sharing the initials of your POI and if you know if social psych is done inviting for interviews? ?

Is it too late after the applications are submitted to reach out to the POIs individually?  I didn't do it before and now I'm wondering if I shot myself in the foot.  Should I still do this?

My interest is in moral psych.  I applied what feels like everywhere LOL.

Cornell, UNC, U Pitt, Penn State, Yale, Syracuse, U Minn, Washington St. Louis, UIUC, Michigan State, Temple, Lehigh, Texas A&M, U Texas Austin.  Please God, someone take me ?.

@GingerC I think it might be awkward to reach out now as they may have already reviewed your application. I don't think you shot yourself in the foot as long as you know the professors you applied to work with are accepting students! 

Good luck!

I say wait to hear from them now that you've submitted your apps.

The main benefit I got from emailing them individually (before submitting) was finding out several of my top choices were not taking students -I'm looking at you, Northwestern!-, but now that they are going to be reviewing apps they will contact you soon.

Soooo all the other psych programs are posting results in droves.. only a matter of time for us, right? :D 

(Off topic) I just finished my last paper of my bachelor's degree program! Now, beside working full time, I have nothing to do except hold my breath for interviews and IRB approval for an experiment I'm supposed to present at SPSP in two months! Send help.

If anyone applied to Colorado - Boulder, they seem to be reviewing. I got an email Thursday asking for a transcript from a certificate program I attended.

Here’s to both of us getting a phone call soon. Which program did you apply to there, the social program or the social neuroscience program? And who were your POIs? I applied to Ito, Van Boven, and Park.

If anyone has applied to UVa - they may take some time because they're hiring a new faculty member and most likely will try to get students who may also be interested in working with this person [they're pretty big on working with multiple people in the area]; but not clear yet who it will be.

That’s good news. After I applied, my main POI responded to my initial email to say they were moving on from my research interest, so I figured I was out.

I applied to social, but the best fit for me is not taking students this year, so my hopes aren’t high.
