With most programs' deadlines now past, I'm curious to know which schools did everyone apply for? This year, I applied to joint MA/Ph.D tracks in Clinical Psychology, with most of my POI's concentrating on the biological factors of cognition and emotions.

 

Here's my list (in no particular order)
 

1. University of Florida
2. University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
3. Georgia State University 
4. University of Louisville
5. University of Arizona
6. University of North Carolina - Greensboro
7. University of Pennsylvania

Good luck to everyone on getting accepted to your dream program! :-)

1. UNC Greensboro

Figured this may be a better thread to ask:

 

How common is it for universities to reimburse you for travel? Does it mean anything (like, they really want you) or is it common practice?

Depends on the school; schools with more money (read: private schools) tend to be in a better position to reimburse travel for interviews. It has nothing to do with your "standing".
