    They’ve all blurred together for me at this point, I just know everything I did is health psych haha but I know I applied for health psych rotations...so maybe it’s not a track but the specific rotations I applied for are health psych.

    I interviewed there on Wednesday. It was a (surprisingly ) pleasant process and everyone was very friendly/welcoming.

    The VA system has an annual internal review for all sites, which is publicly available to view on the VA website. You can read about how their rating system works in the link below, but the Washington VA has been embattled for years with a constant change in leadership.

    If I haven’t heard from Menninger should I just count that as a rejection if I got one from Texas children’s?

    I would not use this rating system in any way to help choose VA training sites, for many reasons. One, these ratings are based on mostly things not even related to the training program, like nursing capacity, or access numbers in unrelated clinics, etc. When you finally get to a job in a hospital system, you truly learn how arbitrary and meaningless rating systems are in the healthcare system. Two, these numbers are nowhere near where I'd rank the training, especially for specialty training areas. There are some 4s and 5s with not great to mediocre training programs, while some 2s and 3s are probably in the top 5 for their specialty. While I haven't heard stellar things about the Washington VA, the rest of the numbers are arbitrary and generally meaningless in terms of training.

    I’m in the same boat. Menninger has been notified so I’m guessing rejection, but no one can know for certain.

    I’ve been wondering the same! My suit will cover my super visible tattoo, but I can’t decide what to do about my nose piercing. I think it’s pretty inconspicuous when I wear a stud, and I agree that it has helped clients find me more approachable, but I don’t want to appear unprofessional. I’m just not sure whether interviewers care or not!

    Someone (a TD I think) just responded to this topic actually. They essentially said that most places you go these days it will not matter. However, there may be some people on training committees who view it unfavorably. This, in turn, could potentially affect your standing in rankings for match. Even if the person is not someone you'd work with on internship. Ultimately it becomes a personal decision as to weighing whether you want to alter yourself to fit the site that could potentially judge you on this matter.

    I’m keeping mine in. It’s a stud and somewhat tiny. I don’t think I’d want to end up somewhere that I’d be judged just for a nose ring lol

    Hi intern applicants,

    Sorry for the second posting but one of our students suggested you may not have seen this on the main list.

    I wanted you to have the information on the Mississippi State University Counseling Center internship, which is accepting its inaugural class next year.

    Since they are new they are not yet accredited, but they have already submitted an intent to apply application to APA and received feedback. They are planning on submitting their self-study as soon as they have interns on campus.

    Here are a few things that stand out about the program:

    1. These are full benefit positions, so they come with the same health insurance and retirement permanent employees receive. For anyone with a health condition this is a really big advantage.
    2. Interns are eligible for the faculty housing program, which provides low-cost housing, and when combined with the $30,000 stipend makes for a generous package, especially for Mississippi

    Although counseling center experience is a bonus, it is not required.

    The full announcement is below and the website can be found here: Counseling Services :: Mississippi State University.

    Please think about it and let me know if you have any questions!

    Michael

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mississippi State University Student Counseling Services (SCS) is currently recruiting its first psychology internship cohort for the 2019-2020 training year. Applicants who are interested in working in a dynamic, interdisciplinary setting at a rural university with a student body from diverse and often underserved populations are encouraged to apply. 3 positions with a stipend of $30,000 and full benefits are available. Interns will also be eligible to participate in the MS State University faculty housing program.

    Interns can expect to receive a variety of experiences including: Individual therapy, group therapy, crisis and after-hour experience, outreach, and supervision. Additionally, SCS offers a variety of specialized rotations to choose from including LGBT+ students, sexual assault and trauma work, international students, and a specialized rotation within our satellite office at the MS State College of Veterinary Medicine.

    SCS is not an APPIC member and is not accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). SCS has a current status with APA of “Intent to Apply” having submitted an intent to apply application and received feedback from APA on July 22,2018. This indicates that SCS has intention of application for APA-Accreditation, on contingency, as soon as our first internship cohort begins. Greater information regarding our proposed timeline can be found here

    SCS is participating in the current APPIC match (Match ID# 248211). Interested applicants are required to utilize the AAPI online application portal when applying to the program. Completed applications should be received no later than December 10, 2019. Questions about the internship program should be directed to Dr. Ty Stafford at [email protected] Further information about the program and Mississippi State University can be found at our website: http://health.msstate.edu/scs/training.php

    MSU is an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, ethnicity, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, disability status, age, sexual orientation, genetic information, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We always welcome nominations and applications from women, members of any minority group, and others who share our passion for building a diverse community that reflects the diversity in our student population.

    Happy Friday everyone. Today is a somewhat popular day for interviews; if you have one today or interviews coming up, good luck!

    I wanted to give a heads up that my plan is to update the list until Dec. 15th, which is the recommended APPIC deadline for notification. I realize there will still be some notifications outstanding at that point, and please continue to post these to the thread so that everyone can be alerted. However, it's simply time for me to end this fun little hobby and place full focus on my interviews, dissertation, and holidays with family.

    I'll post again on the 15th or 16th signifying the point at which the list will no longer be updated.

    Thank you, thank you, A Blue Duck!

    I have to say I am feeling a small bit of jealousy for those of you who have everything all wrapped up and know your plans. I'm still waiting on 10 sites. Hoping for some news today!

    I feel the same way. I’ve had my tiny stud in for almost 9 years - at this point it’s a part of who I am. If a site doesn’t want me for all of me, then I don’t want them either. We should all celebrate who we are as a whole person! My boyfriend sent me this quote recently:

    “Accept everything about yourself - I mean everything. You are you and that is the beginning and the end - no apologies, no regrets” - Henry Kissinger

    I’ve taken this to heart (as much as possible) and hope you all can benefit from these inspiring words. We all have something unique to offer the world (and the field of psychology) and we can choose to embrace it or try to change it. I’m choosing to try to embrace it, and expect this will always be a work in progress!

    Long shot but has anyone heard from the following? Most have notification dates of next week, but I was wondering if there was any information that may not have been posted here yet.
    • Virginia Beach Public Schools
    • Momentous Institute
    • Harris County Juvenile Probation Dept.
    • Mount Sinai Adolescent Health
    • MercyFirst
    • Hutchings Psychiatric Center (Child track)
    • The School at Columbia
    • Lincoln Medical Center
    • Citrus Health Network
    • Terry Children's Center
    • Avondale Elementary School District
    • Devereux Massachusetts and Rhode Island
    Although some of these (e.g. VA Beach, Devereux, Lincoln Medical, and Citrus Health) had very recent application deadlines, so I'm not expecting to hear anything yet.

    I followed up with Greg about this because my understanding was sites should send interview invites AND rejections by their posted date. He confirmed that they are supposed to send rejections as well.

    Also waiting on devereux, Virginia Beach, and have cohortmates waiting on the school at Columbia and Avondale. Devereux’s deadline was today so I think that one will be awhile... schools in general seem to notify next week, for the most part. But oh how I wish that weren’t the case.

    I was hoping that I would wake up this morning to a couple notifications from the east coast (nope), and that I’d be hearing from more throughout the day. Fingers crossed that the second piece does come to fruition.

    I wanted to post this because I think next year's applicants may find it useful to know that McLean Hospital sent out another (possibly the 4th?) wave of invites today. My friend in another program and I both got one so it could be a geographical thing? (we are both very far from Belmont for what it is worth)

    Just received 3 MORE emails from Fort Worth ISD rejecting me, despite the fact that I had already been rejected yesterday. I had to truly utilize some calming, coping skills to avoid emailing back a sarcastic reply about how "I get the point!"
