Thanks! Good luck to everyone! I deduced that I received 0 invites this cycle and will try my best for the next cycle. For those with even just a single interview, know that hundreds of applicant

Anyone else want to get their rejections so they can move on with their life? 😂

Hi! If anyone has any information on these programs please let me know :)

Case Western- I've seen some interviews and some rejections on the results page but I have heard nothing. Application still says "Under Review."

John Jay- I've seen some interviews and some rejections on the results page, but I did not get anything. Could this mean I'm an alternate?

DePaul- has anyone heard from the community track? Thank you!

Does anyone know if University of Miami (Florida) has sent out all of their invites?

I believe so. Their interviews are the 24th so anything this late would be a little short notice.

John Jay told me I wasn't going to get an interview, but I never was formally rejected either! So who knows.

Does anyone have thoughts on the pros/cons of staying with a graduate student during your interview?  I think it would be great to get more in-depth info on the program, but I can see how there might be downsides as well, like not being able to have time to decompress after travel.  I requested to be housed with a grad student for an upcoming interview, but now I'm wondering if my little introvert self might be more comfortable staying at a hotel.  Thoughts?

Definitely stay with a graduate student. I recently graduated from a Clinical Psychology Master's program where my professors were on the admissions committee of the University's Clinical PhD program. The number one piece of advice they gave us was to always accept staying with a grad student host for a few different reasons (can DM if you want to talk further). As an introvert myself, I'm also concerned but decided I have to make the best of my stay!

You pretty much nailed it. It was a good experience in that I got another chance to make a good impression, got to chat a little more about the program, and my grad student drove me around and showed me the area---it was also crazy exhausting.

Would the poster from Georgia State (if they’re on here) mind DMing me the name of their POI and if the phone call they got to inform them of an interview came from the POI or the department? Thanks and congrats! 

Me too! (Also when GSU’s interview weekend will be) Thanks!

Their interviews are either 2/19 or 2/21 from what I saw on the website. Apparently they assign you to a day but maybe you can switch if one doesn’t work?
