    Any other Clinical Psych PhD applicants to URI get an e-mail directing them to check their application status online and it had an acceptance letter? Strange, no interview, not even any contact since applying, letter says "admitted to the PhD Psychology program... for Fall 2012", confuzzled.

    I'm thinking its more likely an error than an actual acceptance. That's why I was wondering if anyone else got it.

    I would double check as sometimes emails are sent out by mistake. I was informed by an internship site of my selection for an interview. The next day I receive another email with apologized for the mistake as the secretary had the interview and non interview list switched. Mistakes happen. Rarely, if ever, do clinical psychology program select you without a face to face interview.

    Has anyone heard from Langberg/Jones at VCU since their interview?

    I've heard of other profs in the child clinical program emailing students saying decisions will be made in next 2 weeks. Curious if Dr. Langberg or Dr. Jones have done the same thing.

    Thanks! Congrats to everyone for being this far along in the process!

    It's my understanding that Dr. Jones already extended an offer. I'm not sure about Langberg

    I'm currently holding the Jones offer. Chances are very good I will accept or reject within the week (to keep things candid). As to Langberg, Jones and Langberg appear to be a team, and thus I would be surprised if Langberg hadn't extended. If I happen to found anything about about him for sure, I will post...

    Ugh I just called to decline my other offer. It's not like I think I'm so great that I've broken this person's heart or anything, but it's still a terribly awkward conversation to have. He also immediately asked where I had accepted. :(

    I know it's hard not to (I still felt a twinge of it during the postdoc application process), but in reality, like a supervisor of mine recently told me, there's no reason to feel guilty or awkward for being a hotly-recruited applicant. Just remember that this isn't the first time they've had it happen, and if nothing else, it helps them realize that their "applicant acumen" is still on point, given that the people in whom they're interested are receiving multiple offers.

    I contacted my POI at Miami University (Ohio) after I saw that some people had heard back about their clinical psych PhD program. I was told that I am an alternate and that alternates will be informed of their status as those who were extended offers first accept or decline. However, I was not informed of my alternate status until I asked. (Fingers crossed that I'll get an offer!)

    Just wanted to put that out there in case anyone else, like me, was wondering about that!

    I know, it's totally common and has definitely happened before. I just keep thinking about how I expressed such strong interest (and I WAS interested), and how he told me he was very excited to make the offer to me...and then I'm all NOPE NO THANKS. :laugh: :(

    The only school I got an offer to keeps e-mailing me sort of pushing me to either accept or decline the offer (in a polite way), BUT

    I haven't heard from 6 of the schools I applied to (I'm assuming I'm rejected) and I was wait listed for an interview at my top choice a month ago and have yet to hear from them again. They said they'd contact me before April 12 if they wanted an interview but I obviously don't want to make this other school wait that long to accept their offer.

    Is it okay to contact the schools I haven't heard from and ask what my status is?
    Is it okay to contact the one I was wait listed at and ask there?

    Congratulations everyone! :)

    What type of program is this?

    Did you receive an offer? If so, can you provide some more details so I can put it on the list? :)

    What type of program is this? How and when were you notified?

    It is perfectly okay to ask about status after a reasonable amount of waiting. In fact, it might be preferred because it lets them know that you are still interested.

    I don't really have an answer but I just wanted to say that this is literally identical to my situation right now, down to the waitlist with the notification before April 12th and the 6 unheard from schools. I had to check and make sure I hadn't posted this and somehow forgotten. I just thought it was really funny how someone is in exactly the same position. :laugh:

    I'm wondering if anyone has heard from Arizona State U post-interview? I know they were going to let people know late last week or early this week but I haven't heard anything yet and I haven't seen any activity online indicating that they have let people know yet... anyone else also waiting to hear back from them? Or has anyone heard from them already?
