    I hear ya...I applied to all UCCs, several of which have notification dates of 12/18, and one that's like, the 21st or 22nd?! Still waiting to hear back from 10 myself, all but 2 of which notified last year right on 12/15 or the day before. I'm not going to have any fingernails left by the end of this, which might not bode well for my well-groomed/manicured appearance come the actual interviews. I guess the trade-off is that most UCC interviews are telephone/skype only, which keeps the cost and stress of traveling way down, but that's assuming the anxiety doesn't kill you first.

    Oh hell no! As a fellow MASH fan... I was hoping to get to meet the great Hawkeye. I'm holding out hope that perhaps we applied to a few other of the same sites and meet over a nice steaming cup of interview crazies.

    Thank you for asking because I feel like I'm starting to spiral out. I'm in a similar boat - have heard from 4 UCCs and radio silence from 14... Tryna to put all my self-soothe & coping tools into action. Better practice what I preach to clients! How are you holding up (as well as other UCC applicants)?

    Did you apply to all UCCs? The only UCCs I have yet to hear back from don't do in person interviews.

    With your logic, the author should have use the (sic) designation. Also, in response to your analysis...

    I'm still waiting to hear from 9 UCCs. I get excited to see others getting their interview invites even with the silence killing me. I keep reminding myself to be grateful that the process might be less expensive since so many are phone or Skype interviews. And...just remind myself that really what I am telling to my clients is "Practice what I say not as I do."

    Is that... yep, that's rain on my parade Hawkeye!!! Most of the rest of the sites I'm waiting on are counseling centers, four of which do not interview in person (Washington State U, Montana State U, U of Colorado Wardenburg, and WVU Carruth Center for Counseling and Psych). Most of the others I'm waiting on are optional in terms of on-site interviews vs not.

    Yes! I am waiting on 10 UCCs! I also have one who said they will notify people by 12/22!! How is this possible?! I am trying to constantly remind myself that UCCs are busy helping students who are in crisis and to be patient. Plus..starwars comes out next week so at least there is that to look forward to!

    Hey y'all - just to provide some balanced thoughts:

    If you're feeling sensitive about the tallies right now, that is OKAY. It is also OKAY if you never considered that other people might feel sensitive about them and chose to use them! It's fine to ask for people to alter something because it's making you uncomfortable, with the recognition that they didn't mean to do that. I haven't seen anyone accuse anyone of being intentionally insensitive. And guys who have made that change - that was generous and thoughtful of you. Agreed that you did nothing wrong - and were gracious enough to change something that was upsetting others. Asking someone to make a change isn't "what's wrong with" psychology, nor is having scared/anxious/negative feelings around something likes this, even if they're mildly irrational. And I'm proud of everyone here for in general using this thread for support rather than catastrophizing! You're all awesome.

    Anyone who received a phone call invite from Columbia/New York Presbyterian last week -- have you received the confirmation email they said they would send post phone call? I haven't

    It just shows that it really isn't over until you get an actual rejection! They must have a second round of invites or a wait list of some kind.

    Other people were FAST in posting these! First rejection and for a site I really liked so that's a weird feeling; I had to keep myself from looking at the e-mail while on the phone for SUNY Albany's interview :p Onward and upward!

    So so agree with this - I think it's important for people to recognize that others might not mean harm, but it's also a great mature thing to alter your behavior (if you feel able to do so) when someone is feeling upset. I removed my tallies because it doesn't hurt me to do so, and I understand that no one was specifically accusing me of being purposefully insensitive.

    I don't know if there is anyone else in this boat but I'm finding myself more and more discouraged since I have no invites yet and 7 rejections. i'm just not sure how all of this works- for example- I'm at a VA for practium but a few VA sites already rejected me. I also did a year with DBT intensively working with borderline patients and Sutter Center for Psychiatry rejected me (they do EXACTLY what I was doing for over a year AND look up to my supervisor who wrote me a letter of rec HIGHLY). I'm really afraid of getting none and having to anxiously wait for phase II but I know a lot of this truly isn't in my control either. How have you all been keeping your head up? Especially those with no invites :/

    I have about 12 rejections and no invites at this point I am focusing on what I can do like my dissertation and the week of prac notes, and just expecting the worst but hoping that the best happens.

    Just to verify, this is the Santa Monica one correct? Did anyone else hear from them? I am waiting to hear and wondering if not receiving an email yesterday is a good thing? I need a win right now with 0 invites so far. Please :whistle:
