Has anyone heard from Cornell? I saw someone got an interview back in mid December and that their interview weekend is in February. It just said Psychology though, and I applied to the Human Development school for the developmental psychology program. I’m wondering if they’ve already done their interviews too.

I haven't heard from them.

HD usually sends their interview invitations mid-January. I saw on the results page that someone was contacted by their Cornell HD PI today. Could that person please share their PI name/initials in a PM?

I got an email from my POI at UVA telling me that they're no longer researching my interest and offering to share my application with others that might be interested in me. It never occurred to me that the other POIs I mention might not see my application. Trying not to be too hopeful, but at least I know my application was good enough for my POI to think others might want to see it!

I got my first acceptance! UConn is my 4-5 choice so I probably won't go unless my interviews go really badly, but still I'm so much more relaxed now! 

Congrats! I got an invite to UConn Dev Psych's prospective student's visitation day on 2/1 (can't go, arranged to go on an alternate date). Did you get accepted without an interview, or is the visitation day not an interview but like a recruitment event?

I applied to UConn's HDFS program, not Dev. I got an acceptance without an interview, but I did have an email correspondence with the PI before applying. The email invited me to "Graduate Student Weekend" from Feb 28- March 2, it sounded like a recruitment event to sell me on the program and show me the area, more than an interview.

I've heard from Human Development at Cornell! It was a Skype interview with my POI 

Congratulations! Would you be willing to share your POIs initials in a pm?

Sure! Just as a question (I'm a Canadian and first time applicant so I'm sorry if this seems like a dumb question), I don't really understand why people don't share the names of their POIs freely. I just followed what everyone else seemed to be doing and kept it anonymous on the forum. Does anyone know why people tend not to share the names of their POIs?

I personally don’t do it because I don’t want my POI googling themselves and seeing what I’ve said (however innocent) and figuring out it was me. It just seems poor form in general to share details of private conversations with names attached.

Okay, I see. Thank you so much!

Cornell POI told me to keep an eye out for an email from the department and that she would enthusiastically recommend me to the committee. Not sure if the email from the department is about the results of the committee or something else. 

Would you mind PMing me your POI?
