    I wouldn't worry. Professors are probably terribly busy right now.

    Don't get worried. We have the same interview invite and I haven't received anything either. Everyone's on break for the holidays right now so I'm not expecting to hear any new details until the first week of January. :thumbup:

    Oh, and any word for Minnesota Counseling? (to be distinguished from the combined school, clinical, and counseling program).

    Thanks!

    I've heard that Minnesota counseling and CSPP (Counseling & School Personnel Psychology) send out letters of acceptance/rejection in the mail. Unfortunately I'm home for the holidays so I won't be able to check my mail box.. Do you think they send emails out along with the letters?

    Zebra, I think the CSPP is different from counseling psychology...

    Anyone else apply to UW-Milwaukee Clinical?

    UGH, so I just heard back about my UCSB Skype interview.

    The e-mail from the admin reads, "Thank you for recently taking the time to interview with [POI name] via Skype. I wanted to let you know that you are still being considered for admission, but we are not inviting you to campus at this time."

    I'm confused; why don't they just say I'm rejected? Obviously I'm not on their short list. :(

    I spoke to the admissions office earlier this week and they said that invites would go out the week of January 9th....

    I think we have a little time before we start to get nervous...

    FYI... CSPP is different from the more heavily research-oriented "Counseling Psychology" program at the U of MN (Department of Psychology)... However, CSPP has funded counseling psychology track (School of Education) that confers clinical licensure

    adventurera congrats on the interview that's wonderful!

    and questionreality I'm sorry that's so crappy...
    I think that I'm in the same boat though. I had a UCSB skype interview with my POI (clinical) on the 15th and still haven't heard anything..I didn't feel great about it. but it would be nice if someone eventually emailed me saying sorry buddy. they've just left me hanging and i'm pretty sure all of the in-person interview invites have gone out at this point :/

    anyway happy holidays to everyone & hopefully the new year is filled with interviews and offers for all of us!

    Happy Christmas Eve all!

    I thought I would share this "I Just Got an Interview for a Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program What do I do?!" document from Mitch. Some of you might have already read this - but just in case you haven't, here it is. There's some very thorough, well articulated, and valuable tips in this.
    Enjoy :)

    Does anyone know if USC still does interviews after 1/13? I didn't get their mass email this month... does that mean I'm SOL for an interview, or do they invite more people later? Feeling pretty down, really was hoping to go there!

    My understanding is that USC usually only have one interview date, but I bet you can get in touch with USC and ask if they'll have more interview dates/if all invites are out yet...

    The DCT at USC got back to me and said only this:
    One set of interview invitations has gone out and, more generally, our admissions are on a rolling basis.

    I guess this means there is still hope!

    I received an email today from my POI at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee for their interview weekend Jan 26-28th. She also offered to talk on the phone in the meantime.

    I was in your shoes last year and know what your going through, I was doing the same thing. To answer your question the next couple of months will definetly drive you nuts, but don't start to fret just yet because most schools don't start sending out invites until January and some Feburary as well. You get to stress about the invites and then even more about the interview. It will be a tough couple of months. Waiting sucks but it will all work out. Have hope!

    Hi all,

    Got a call from my POI at Tulsa inviting me for an interview. I know tulsa is already on the list but for those of you who have not heard they are still calling prospective students so all hope is not lost yet.

    I'm so glad everyone else is owning up to that, too! I have this page open all day and I'm trying really hard not to refresh more than a couple of times per day. I wish we could just fast forward time, seriously. This is worse than actually filling out apps.

    Just received an email from my POI at University of Florida (Counseling PhD) requesting a phone interview sometime in the next week. Again, it's implied to be a pre-interview for the actual interview day. Thought I'd be waiting around a bit longer to hear more news, but I'm not complaining! :D

    Yep, I probably check either SDN or TGC over 50 times a day, and that's not even counting my school email account. It's a problem.

    What is the grad cafe site for psychology? I always get pretty sparse threads when I search it on google.

    The psych forum is here: http://forum.thegradcafe.com/forum/8-psychology/

    I spend much more time on TGC than I do on SDN. Probably 'cause I'm only applying to 4 clinical programs. The rest are social or neuroscience.

    The only one on your list I applied to was U of Montana, and I haven't heard back from them. The applications aren't due until Jan 1 though for it so I assume we have a bit of time.
