Does anyone know if there is a google spreadsheet for all the results like there was last year? I remember it being super useful 

There does not appear to be one.  Unfortunately, last year's spreadsheet has been deleted.  Do you remember what was on it?

Hi all. I am currently a first-year student in a Clinical Psychology PhD program and thought I would share this info on the interview for the schools I applied to last year and the interview invitation date/method for the schools I interviewed at. I would have loved something like this last year – I lurked on Grad Café but never created an account or posted so now I want to give back!  Keep in mind, at some schools the POI will contact you directly and at other schools it will be the DCT or an administrative assistant sending out a mass email. This was my FIFTH time applying to Clinical Psych PhD programs and I finally made it so you all definitely can too!! All of this info is for the Clinical Psychology PhD programs for these schools! Any questions about anything at all, please PM me!

Hi!

Sorry for squeezing in when I'm not Clinical/Counseling but this thread seem to be the most active for interview-related discussions.

What is recommended for responding to interview invitation emails?

Do you immediately say Yes! then try to reschedule later (if needed) if you get more invitations from other schools? Or do you politely ask for an rsvp deadline?

Thanks in advance

There is a long list of potential questions here: https://liberalarts.utexas.edu/psychology/_files/PDF/diversitypdfs/Interview-Questions.pdf

The questions you actually get will vary based on the professor and program.  Do you have any mentors with whom you can speak about how they evaluate applicants?

Thank you so much for sending that link over.

Yes, there is but I'm too shy to ask him. I applied to work with him, so I don't know if he will be conducting the interview. . . IF I GET ONE. . . or if it would be someone else. But thank you so much for all of this :)

Does anyone have advice when preparing for a Skype interview? I was recently invited to a Skype interview with one of my top choice POIs from UIC. I currently work with this person and have a strong professional relationship with them (so they're not a stranger).

 

Responses appreciated!

Make sure you are in a room with a neutral background and that you are somewhere where you will not be interrupted or have loud noise from outside the room.
