    It's just worse because I'm so on edge whenever I receive any emails!

    Had my first interview yesterday and it was wonderful, a very warm and welcoming site. It’s very true what they say about feeling out “fit” versus just doing anything to make them like you and trying to tell them what they want to hear. I was just my genuine self and shared my interests and I just clicked with the site so well. Nothing I don’t want there, everything I’m looking for. Definitely lucky to have such a great, laid back first interview though, I know others probably won’t be like that! Regardless, I was definitely exhausted by the end of the day from being “on” all day. Make sure y’all engage in self care before and after each interview!

    Onward to the next one!

    Omg. Not cool, Fort Worth ISD! That is so disorganized.

    I didn’t apply there. I wanted to but sent them an email awhile back asking if they would consider clinical psych applicants and they didn’t even respond. They have excellent ASD resources/training for a school district.

    Still haven’t heard from Menninger even though they sent invites earlier this month. I don’t know if I should just count that one as a rejection.....same with UT health San Antonio

    I googled what dates are considered “early December” and today is the last day to hear from them! Unless they decided to go into mid-December

    News from this forum just caused me to cry in my office for 30 minutes straight, so I definitely need to back off. I'm only allowing myself on here going forward to post about my own notifications, just to keep people posted. Hoping y'all have a great Friday, relaxing weekend, and luck with this process.

    Rejection from Bedford VA - not overly surprising. Unfortunately, they accidentally sent it with a subject line about their open house, which then gave a bit of whiplash when it was actually a rejection.

    Honestly me too. I applied to 16 places and I got 2 interviews to my top 2 sites. Then 2 rejections and pretty much silence from everywhere else, including places that I see have sent out interview offers. Not a great feeling at all.

    My current site, which I LOVE and work hard at 21 hours per week, has sent out interview offers but radio silence for me. Honestly, it would just be very tough to not take a rejection personally. At this point I just need to hear something.

    This happens quite a bit at the schools in my city - externship does not automatically translate to internship, even though one would expect it to be an advantage in the early decision stages. It says nothing negative about your performance. But as always, only draw conclusions when you hear one way or another. I'm awaiting quite a few sites, many of which have sent invites in unusual waves, making it impossible to gauge and very easy to become frustrated. Hang in there!

    I know what you mean, but i know some post docs don't like to take on students who interned there as to provide variety of training i think? So maybe some sites similarly don't like to take their practicum students as their interns? It would suck though having to continue working there after not being invited for an interview :/ . I originally wanted to apply to a practicum site where I spent a year and a half and loved it but ended up deciding against it because the practicum there is very similar to their internship and I wanted my training to have more variety of experiences.

    The thing is, I reached out to the training director before applying and they said they frequently take students who have been externs, and in fact, one of last year's interns had been an extern the previous year. There are rational reasons why I would be rejected, and none of my 2 direct supervisors actually make the decisions, but it just makes me feel extremely bad about myself.

    Honestly, there hasn't been a time this year where I wanted to just lay in bed, watch Netflix and drink wine while thinking about nothing more then today.

    That's completely understandable. There are reasons within every application that could warrant a rejection or even a lower ranking following interviews. There are also countless reasons for rejection that have nothing to do with application deficits, as a previous DOT posted on here, that no one can control in this "crapshoot" of a process: certain letters have buzz words that interest one particular reader on one particular day of the week and at one particular time of day; the reverse to this can also be true depending on the specific person, day, and time; one could be tied for 12th on a list that can only be 12 people long, and fall on the wrong side of the coin; the list goes on and we could continue to create scenarios in which qualified candidates are not being invited.

    This doesn't change the situation itself, unfortunately. The hardest part is just trusting that whatever is meant to happen will happen. This is not generally how I view things (overly optimistic) but am realizing that this is the only way to get through this highly stressful process. I trust that all of us will successfully make it through to the other side and never look back.

    Should I count the Menninger site as a rejection?

    One of my sites sent a mass email saying to let them know if we have any food allergies... since I do not, I assumed a reply was unnecessary. A week later the emailed me asking if I have a food allergy. Does it look bad I didn’t reply the first time? The way it was worded made it sound like to only email if we do have one.

    I think (myself included) we are all overthinking this too much. I doubt that your impressive clinical skills are going to be overlooked because you neglected to reply to a mass email about food allergies.

    I feel that this is likely a common occurrence - I also would not have responded if it was phrased in an interpretable manner. They probably do not want countless emails coming in and it makes sense to choose to not contribute to their inbox unnecessarily. At this point, I would just briefly state no allergies and apologize for not responding due to not wanting to add to a likely overwhelming inbox.

    Hopefully, later today. It would really suck if they dragged this out for their other tracks into the next week.

    Agreed. Though, the post from yesterday of the Child track being invited makes me wonder if the email actually specified the track or if that was just the track to which the poster applied. Sometimes that matters. But who knows - last year they invited on multiple days. I applied to the Combined track.

    Has anybody heard anything about Autism or Trauma tracks from the Yale Child Study Center yet? So far I've only seen posts for the Pediatric and Early Childhood tracks.

    Reading through these anxiety posts has helped me to put some of this experience into perspective. Worst case scenario, I spend another year as not a psychologist. Nobody is threatening to shoot me if I don't match, and I assume it is the same for everyone else here. It feels as if there is alot of suffering on here as a result of the interview process... may I humbly offer that aiming to be psychologist doesn't render emotion regulaton and cognitive therapy techniques ineffective? Whether or not we get our perfect (or any) invitations, the sun will still come up, the Earth will still spin on its axis, and we will still be worth loving.
