Just so you know some people don't even know the forum exists! I was exclusively looking at the results page until my friend who is also applying was only looking at the forum and we talked about wher

Individuals on here are posting in regards to what's popping up on TGC Results page.   If a person receives an invite and makes an actual post on the actual invite thread (e.g., the "Fall 2019 Clin

Please ask people for their POIs here rather than the interview invite thread - posting there makes people think there is another invite which leads to lots of unnecessary panic! Thank you!

Great idea! If anyone happens along this thread and has been invited for interview with FIU or FSU, could you post their initials? Also, same for PennState :)

 

or UMaryland-College Park, and UMASS-Amherst? lol

What incentive do people have for browsing this thread over the original one?

Poi requests were spammy but I’m not sure separating a thread will help that much. Anyone who is invited for an interview, who is willing to share their POI, is more likely to just post the initials publically rather than find each person who wants that info through this thread

I never posted initials publicly lol. I think as a kind gesture, I (and hopefully others) will check this thread if I ever receive future invites. I personally know the agonizing/brutal pain of seeing invites pour through the damn TCG results page for a school you applied to and having your inbox dry as hell. 

I think it'll leave the invites page less clutter-y, but that's my opinion. People can just post their details on the other thread, and others can PM them directly about POIs if they are curious. This one may be more relevant to the stuff popping up on TGC results page.

Yeah. I know it will clean it up a bit. But i don’t think a separate thread solves the problem. 

There are people who quote others instead of DMing posters directly. And there’s a lot of (IMO) irrelevant useless posts as well. But if this thread picks up steam and the other post becomes more strictly about invites (which begs the question, why not post more info anonymously on the results page?), we have 5 areas to monitor. (General applicants, clin invites, clin applicants,  this, and results). There’s little to no incentive for interviewees to browse or post on this specific thread.

It may be a bad analogy but it’s like moving the soup kitchen to a different city. Why visit? Say I get invited to school A. Am I really expected to go through this thread to find who wants POI info about school A? Why would I use my time that way?

I agree with you about the irrelevant posts: "Has anyone heard from Schools a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l and m? Thanks!" ***EYE ROLL***

I'm so anxious and bored I'm checking the invites page + the clinical applicants page + the general psych applicants page (a disaster/black hole honestly) and occasionally the interview tips/other things that pop up. I don't know if this s$@t will solve the mess/monster that has been created... But hey, another thread to waste our time on, right LMAO? (Have you seen the amount of applicant-specific threads now? I can't)

Different threads make things cleaner, if you REALLY wanna hunt down a certain school's decisions thats what the search function is for. The only incentive for this thread is to clean up the forum. The psychology people have turned this forum into a zoo now that admissions seasons has come and mods here don't do much of anything so its best up to the users (cough us) to enforce good forum etiquette.
