    I thought that it may be good to hear the background of everyone that has accepted an offer; GPA, GRE, POI, what schools interviewed you, and where you have relinquished other offers. May help us all keep a handle on what is happening next.

    Considering offers do not have to be accepted until April 15th, this can be a place for people to post all offers as they come, correct? I think that's the main thing people are concerned with now; hearing back from programs after their interviews. It would also be nice if you got wait-listed somewhere, to be able to gauge the chance that the individual receiving the initial offer will turn it down.

    I received an offer from Antioch New England's PsyD program, plus a fellowship for $5k for the first two years. Not much, but also nothing to sneeze at!

    I am also interviewing at Widener, Roosevelt, Wright Institute, & Pacific. I was rejected by Loyola Maryland and am still waiting to hear from PGSP-Stanford, University of Denver, Rutgers, and GWU.

    My undergrad GPA (including some post-bac psych courses I took) was 3.4. My GREs (old system) are 780 verbal, 690 math, 5.5 analytical writing, and 670 psych subject test. I am a non-traditional student in that I was a Film major undergrad, spent 5+ years working as a documentary editor before making the switch, taking psych courses, working in a mother-infant communication lab as a research assistant and at a community mental health center as well. Feel free to PM me with any questions!

    EDIT: Rejected from University of Denver, and got an interview date for GWU.

    Yes, I remember you! But not because you were stunned by driving in NYC (everyone is), but because of your domestic violence work. Looks like we'll possibly be classmates in the fall! :)

    Sam Houston State University Clinical Psych Ph.D. program. DCT called this morning with admissions offer and stipend. I will most likely be accepting the offer because I loved the program! If anyone else has heard from them, feel free to PM me so we can chat! Good luck everyone! Oh, my GPA is 3.8 UG and 4.0 Grad. and GRE was not that great, 157v and 151q; 720 psych with a little over a year of research experience that I think helped me out.

    If you all don't mind, I will post some of them that I have been able to confirm outside of this thread as well. I won't just post things that I find on GradCafe, but ones where I have talked to someone.

    I'm probably over thinking this, but...if you receive an offer over the phone and don't want to accept on the spot (even though you'll most likely accept that offer, but just need a couple of days to process), what do you say to the POI or DCT on that phone conversation? If you say something wrong/don't show enough enthusiasm about the offer, can they withdraw it (this would be before they send out formal written offer). thanks

    I would say something along the lines of "I'm so happy to be offered admission to this program; it's been one of my top choices since I started the application process. I look forward to reviewing the formal written offer once it arrives."

    I said something very similar to the above post, and told the DCT to expect an email from me indicating that I will accept the offer soon, but that this program has been my top choice from the beginning and I also believe it is the best fit for me. He did say that he would need to know if I planned on rejecting so they could offer the spot to the next person, but I have every intention to accept. I just want to see the official offer and to take a few days to breathe and inform my mentor.

    Excellent program. I've worked with a number of grads and they were all very well trained (strong foundation in research training and also well informed clinicians).

    I don't know specifics about the programs, but I have heard GREAT things about the one at Madison. And I can tell you that Madison is a WONDERFUL town. Close to Chicago, quite a bit cheaper, but really a great place to live.

    This thread is missing many of the posted acceptances on Grad Cafe. Be sure to check there which people seem to switch to to post acceptances and rejections.

    A former colleague of mine trained under Dr. Ingram and I know Dr. Ilardi, both have very (research) productive labs that foster balanced training of clinicians. I'm not sure how much of Lawrence you were able to see if/when you visited, but it's a cute college town with a bunch of mom & pop dining options (including at least one brewery that makes some quality beers). In my travels out there I never got to catch a basketball game, but it is one of the best places to catch a game in the country.

    Has anyone heard back from Virginia Consortium? They said they would send acceptances out last week, so I'm assuming its bad news.

    I was just accepted to Oklahoma State University for the Counseling Psychology, Ph.D program as a post-Bachelors .

    I interviewed with University of California Santa Barbara (Counseling Psychology, Ph.D) but I am still waiting to hear back from them.
    I have 2 up-coming interviews with Teachers College and University of Missouri Kansas City, both for Counseling Psychology, Ph.D.

    Fallen, if I am not mistaken, those that were recently accepted, applied and interviewed for the JD/PhD track (and I think there was only one interview weekend for the track), so there may be hope for all of us waiting to hear from other labs that interviewed both weekends. Fingers crossed.
