It's more of a status thing, telling people you specialize in neuropsych...
A friend of mine had a hard time getting internship last year because her school was on probation. She also applied a year before that and had 7or 9 interviews. Unfortunately she did not match the first time. She ended up doing a CAPIC internship.
