    Has anyone heard from NYU Counseling, post-interview? I saw a few rejections on TGC but not sure if those were pre or post-interview. They said they'd let us know this week after the interview, but I haven't heard anything.

    same here. I would like to know who contacted you, the POI or DCT? If POI, can you PM me the name of your POI?
    Any ideas whether they have extended all first-round offers?
    By the way, I am talking about clinical psych program in the school of medicine. Thanks.

    Congratulations!! Per chance do you have any idea whether all of the acceptance phone calls and e-mails have gone out? It sounds like it'd be a "yes", since it was the chair of admissions who called you, but maybe there's some variance per POI? Thanks :)

    Also, if the person who posted their acceptance on TGC is on this thread and wants to PM me, would be great to hear from a potential cohort mate.

    Since my previous question was not answered, I am posting it again.
    Anyone received an offer from Clinical Psychology school of medicine in Northwestern U?
    If you did, can you share in what manner you received it? for instance, call or email from POI or DCT? Thanks. Anyone else is still waiting as me?

    Received a letter from Syracuse stating I am waitlisted for the Clinical Psych program (I did not interview). They asked for me to return a form indicating if I would like to stay on the waitlist. Ugh. I already have one offer from a school I really want to go to, but I'd really like to consider Syracuse, but they said they probably won't have any firm information on my status until mid-April.

    I'm also waiting on Northwestern. Seems like we should be finding out by this week! Since there were 3 interview days, perhaps the candidates who interviewed on a later date won't find out until this week? Should we contact the DCT to ask if we don't hear back by the end of this week?

    I just called the secretary and unfortunately all offers for neuropsych track have been made. I didn't ask other tracks. I think there's sort of waiting list but I guess I will just wait for anything new or a rejection email by mid March.

    Congrats to you folks on your acceptances!

    I'd encourage you guys to check out the Occupy the Imbalance thread to learn more about an important professional issue that you're going to be dealing with in the near future. If you start now, we can have a big impact by the time you apply for internship!

    I received an acceptance e-mail from Yeshiva's School/Clinical Psyd that seemed to be a carbon copy letter but it was addressed specifically to me.

    In case the new psychology grad students (congratulations on your acceptances!) aren't aware of this, any of you pursuing clinical psych will need to complete an internship (mostly through the APPIC match) and some of you in counseling and school psych will also want to complete an internship through the APPIC match.

    It's a degree requirement and you may not be able to meet the requirement due to the "imbalance" between the number of applicants and the number of spots. For example, this year 1 in 3 applicants who registered to match have not matched yet (and only about 10-15% of remaining applicants have any chance of matching). And only 52% of the people who matched (so, again, about 1 in 3 internship applicants) got an APA-accredited internship. Important to check this out (and check out the match stats for your potential program on appic.org) before you make decisions about what to do with the next few years of your life!

    Good luck! :luck:

    I just interviewed at a program on match day and they were extremely relieved to maintain their 100% match rate. Proud, yes, and not totally surprised, but clearly relieved. The match rates appear to be falling at many excellent programs, and while it's a difficult thing to have to think about when we are busting our buns trying to get into schools, it's so important to keep in mind that the way things stand, many in our cohort will NOT match.

    But it's not hopeless. For starters, take a look at the Occupy the Imbalance thread: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=881584

    Then take a look at this petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/psychology-internship/

    Just so everyone knows, if you're going to a Counseling Psych program (and I believe school psych) you MUST complete an internship, just in case there was any confusion about it. Also, you'll be participating in the same APPIC match that everyone is talking about, so the worry about the imbalance applies to all of us.
