Anyone else's brain like: "omg its Jan 2- the holidays are over please read my application now!!!" Two weeks from now, a lot of us will be hearing some great news! I know it's hard to stay positi

Hi everyone, 1st year clinical (Ph.D.) student here. I remember being in your place around this time last year (and several years before that), and found myself reminiscing how awful all those fe

I think that's it for this cycle for me. There's not really a point to this post other than maybe some kind of closure? I've checked this site countless times a day for so many months, but there's no

Hi! I've posted about this on the "I'm stressed" section, but I'm looking for some advice. I interviewed with my program in January. More professors interviewed than spots available. My PI said they are low on the list and as one person declines an offer of admission, another PI can make an offer. They said it could be several weeks to hear back since the interview was during one of the first interview weekends and people would need time to make decisions. However, it's been a month since then and I haven't received any updates, but I know at least the first 5 offers have gone out. I don't have any other offers so emailing doesn't make sense because I'm not asking for decision making purposes. But, is there a point where it is acceptable to email about status? What would you do? I know being patient is important but I'm going to need to start planning things one way or the other at some point.

I definitely think it's acceptable at this point to ask the DCT about your status! A month is quite a while.

I agree with this too — though, I'd expect the DCT to tell you to wait until mid-April for finalized decisions.

I saw that someone on the results page got accepted to University of North Carolina Charlotte for Clinical Psychology PhD, congrats! I was wondering if anyone else has heard back from them / POI. 


Also, do universities always send acceptances at the same time? (AKA is there any hope of an acceptance if I haven’t received one yet)

I heard back from Iowa almost a week after the first person did.

I am in the same boat. Can I ask you what school you are waitlisted for? pM me if you'd like. In my case, the P.I didn't let me know where she was on the list to offer admission as everything was through the DCT. DCT said in the initial email that there is really no way to tell who will be able to put in an offer next so it has been about 1 month and I have heard nothing.

If you are reaching out to a school to let them know you'd like to withdraw your application because you're accepting another offer, is it customary to tell them where you're going? Have other people done this? Thanks in advance for feedback! Every aspect of this process makes me so anxious; I just want to do everything right/maintain good rapport with all the faculty members I interviewed with.

I think it really varies, but I went ahead and told mine where I'm going (especially since the researchers are in the same field). I think they like to know as well, as it helps understand why that program might have been a better fit
