Just a quick update that I received a formal interview to Duke. But I applied to Duke CNAP program (not psych) which may be different from most of you. So if you haven't hear anything from Duke yet you don't have to worry as we're probably applying to different programs.(I applied to a PI who is in both CNAP program and psych program though).

...what were your PI initials?

Dev psych never gets any love even though we’re objectively the best speciality. My undergrad mentor always told me people think they’re clinical until they find out about dev psych haha  We don’

I got an email from my POI at UN-Lincoln and I have been accepted into their Developmental & Learning Sciences PhD!!

I interviewed at what I *thought* was my last-choice program this week and fell in love!! I'm obsessed! But i also hate making decisions so i'm kind of hoping (if i get an offer here) that i hate visi

Just had an informal chat with POI from Michigan, she wouldn’t tell me when notifications go out but there isn’t an interview weekend for Michigan, just a recruitment weekend (this goes ditto for University of Minnesota)

Well at least we know the apps have trickled down to the PIs. 

Have you heard anything re: Minnesota?

And that UCLA post in the results page really freaked me out, I wonder if that’s an official interview notice (because I haven’t heard anything from them at all since my Skype call with POI pre-app).

Posted this previously, but POI I emailed said the faculty there have started to review them personally. ICD I think is different not sure how they work.

Hi! I just found this forum and was so excited that I got my first interview weekend invitation from my POI at UCLA yesterday, but now I’m seeing that it looks like I should’ve already heard from most of my schools. ? Oh well, UCLA was one of my top choices, so I’m still excited about that.

Where did you all apply? And welcome! :)

Re: thinking you want to do clinical until you discover developmental, that happened to me.  Now I'm in a  program with both clinical and developmental, and there are all clinical people in my lab except for me.  I don't want to do ANY of that, not the classes, not the practicum, not the internship, none of it.  I just want to do research and that's what I'm doing!

I’m more like thinking you want to do neuro until you discover developmental!

Did anyone apply to Stanford? My app says that it is incomplete, because they don’t have official transcripts, but I’m pretty sure they only asked for unofficial uploads. I’m wondering if this is just what the portal says and they don’t update, or if my app really didn’t/won’t get reviewed because they didn’t get them before the deadline. I never got an email requesting official transcripts.

I did and mine says the same even after sending my official transcripts, so not sure what the deal is. Hoping to hear from them soon since their deadline was the earliest one I had!

That's weird, I couldn't understand what they're trying to say and didn't know there's actually two psych departments. I'm applying to GSAS. 

Yes that is for Steinhardt. They are reviewing/revising their curriculum so not taking students this year.

I heard from UCLA last week too for an interview, but I think it's super early and most of the other schools I applied to probably won't get in touch until January/February. Are you sure you should have already heard from most of your schools? Which other did you apply to?

I swear mine said complete originally after my letters came in, and then it changed. I don’t even know where to send my transcripts. I’ll have to search the app and see what I can find.

Cool! Maybe we’ll see each other there! After looking through the threads I see that I shouldn’t have heard from most places I applied to yet. That was my first post here and I was just discovering that people had been hearing already. It looks like I could be hearing from some this week, but most seem to not contact until January.

I was looking through the forum and it seems that people don’t tend to hear from Stanford until January.

I did and mine says complete. I'm an international applicant so I asked administration at my university to send my transcript (unofficial though as I am still in my final year) in the post to arrive by December 1st.

I also applied for the Knight-Hennessy Scholarship for Stanford and based on the information I received whilst applying for that, Stanford seems to wait until mid-January before sending anything out

Wonderful! 

Also for your information, UCSB’s email system is down so if you’re like me freaking out trying to email someone don’t worry haha

Didn’t UCSB push their deadline back? I applied to a different department there and they had extended the deadline to January I think because of the fires.
