Well, I emailed NYU last week and was politely told that I had been rejected ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ...
I am rejected for a visa that means I can't come to US to have an interview that automatically makes me ineligible for match process...I had a few interviews and step3 exam, but those didn't help to get a visa. I am so down and feel hopeless. Any suggestion or insight for my career that i can do outside the US for couple of years?
2 What about about you? My Step 2CS score is not in yet.
I have 3. ( gone to 1) plus some waitlists. (Only applied at 70)
My friend with almost identical stats (same school, both step scores within <5 pts. He has 8, but he applied to more and he did not exclude NYC). He and I are both also waiting for cs scores.
Congrats on the interview invites! Are you an US-IMG?
what happd to the spreadsheet???
Has anyone heard from UNC, UCLA semel, or Ucsd recently?
Thank you for the congrats. Instead of focusing on there being only three, I'm just trying to make them the best 3. And yes, I am an IMG. (More specifically a US-Big3 Caribbean ms4 non-traditional)
Sorry what happd to the spreadsheet?
Anyone heard from Harvard South Shore recently?
Got an invite to the waitlist a few weeks ago, changed to scheduled last week. There were no other interview spots available and just a few waitlists left.
Has anyone heard back from RUMC?
Google docs spreadsheet link
Does this work?
Anyone else get interview invitations at really weird times? I thought it was a M-F, 9-5 sort of thing, but I've had II's roll in on weekends and evenings too when I wasn't expecting to check my email, resulting in some delayed interview scheduling. What's the deal with this? Are PC's really working weekends and evenings during interview season?
Some people do work after hours but often they deliberately have the emails timed to send out at evening/weekends etc to avoid a barrage of emails/calls etc
Is there even a chance we'll receive interviews after Thanksgiving? Seems to me invitations and correspondence have really died down for a while now...
There's still a chance but I think it's getting more and more unlikely.
That being said if there is a program that you're highly interested in, it doesn't hurt to send them an interest email. I sent a couple recently and was told that they will contact me if any spots open up!
I've contacted some programs and was told the same on some... it sounds to me like it's a "don't call us, we'll call you" rejection lol. But who knows!

So has anyone else gotten an interview since November started? Just curious because all my interviews came really early in the app process (before MSPEs were released) and I thought I'd get a little love after that, especially because more than one of my interviewers have said my MSPE was more impressive than they were expecting it to be.
I got one (off the waitlist, I'm assuming) after sending a love letter to the program. No spontaneous invites since early October.
most of mine came early-mid october. zip after november.
i got one the second week of november, zero after that.
I got one! But I cancelled it on Wednesday so I hope it goes to a new person this coming week!
Sent from my iPhone using SDN mobile
I've gotten two.
None since the 2nd week in October. Really not expecting anymore at this point. I haven't sent love letters or contacted programs at all and don't plan to.
Is it possible you just applied to programs that didn't wait for MSPE release before inviting applicants? The invites I got after it was released were only programs that specifically waited for it.
I got one second week of Nov. It does appear that there has been a sizable uptick in applicants this year though. I’ve been told that an increase in applicants coming from the home institutions of several highly competitive academic programs has also led to a decrease in interview spots since the # of total IIs offered has not changed substantially
Only 1 in November. Don't think I'll get anymore, but you never know.
Same here. No ERAS offers since 10/20. The only offer I received in November was from a visiting rotation while I was there.
Thanks for the responses everyone. Just curious because I've gotten so few responses since mid-Oct, only a waitlist and a rejection or two. I just thought I'd hear more given the number of places I applied.
Given the number of programs I applied to, I'd be shocked if that were the case. There were also several programs that had no interviews on this thread that suddenly had 2-3 within a few days of MSPEs getting released, so I'm sure I applied to plenty that waited for MSPE to be released. I'm just surprised I hadn't heard more in general since mid-October (positive or negative) and that the programs I contacted about my interest in them about a week ago said they were still reviewing ERAS apps.
Do you have enough to match? A handful may trickle in late with cancellations or procrastinating PCs/PDs, but many invites are already out.
Guys don't worry, there's typically a second batch of interviews being sent out once people start canceling. I think 2 years ago I got at least 5-6 interviews after November?
I've gotten 3 invites this month which is definitely 2/2 cancellations. Be patient -- more are coming. I've personally canceled 2 in the past week. The more that people cancel = programs need to hit their quota for invites
US IMG. 5 interviews, 1 was from application process and the other 4 were solicited by emailing programs directly, aka nagging. 1 waitlist also, so ~6.
If I hadn't emailed for the additional interviews, I'd only have 1 interview -- so show your interest if you haven't already**. GL everyone
**EDIT: Within reason of course -- don't email 20+ places
I’ve been wondering about this. How likely do y’all think we would be to go from an interview waitlist to matchable position? Say a program interviews 80 people, and they have to go down to #30 on their ranklist to fill all of their positions. One person cancels, so you get an invite to interview off their waitlist. So you’re essentially going in as their 80th choice, and have to work your way up to #30 to get a spot there. I know PDs all say “we only interview people we’re serious about ranking” but it still seems kinda unlikely to me. Anybody know of anyone who matched somewhere they were initially waitlisted?
Since some programs go unfilled it seems there have to be cases where being a program's last choice could still result in a match there
Happens all the time. At many programs, the limiting factor is the number of interview spots, not the number of applicants that would make solid residents.
I think so. I'm not overly concerned about matching (obviously a little afraid, but I think it's the healthy amount of nerves that most applicants feel), but I'm still a few interviews short of the number I'd really be comfortable at.
I know one (maybe 2, can't remember the exact details about the second guy). One was a Carib grad that didn't get his interview until mid-December, ranked them as his top choice and got it. No idea how far down their list he was, but obviously worked out for him.
That’s good to hear. I wonder how far down their lists most programs go? I heard one interviewer (average size program- 6 residents, I think) brag that they only went to #27 last year (and interviewed like 80). Hopefully most programs go further down the ranklist than that. I feel like I’m a decent applicant (>10 offers) who interviews reasonably well, but I still ideally would like to go into an interview with greater than 1-in-3 odds.
I would add to this - in a friendly way - that your best move is to try to be yourself. If you are hoping for a higher level of supervision, then that will come across. If you want to be more independent, then that will come across.
IMO, the worst is when an applicant is trying to please me in an interview. It is pretty obvious and annoying and it gets in the way of really getting to know a person. It also takes away from the primary purpose -- try to assess if there will be a good match. You want to show yourself in the interview so that - when you get to the program - you are the same person. Does that make sense? Happy to answer questions about what I am trying to communicate here.
I got good news for you! According to NRMP data, for psych, programs on AVERAGE go down 4.5-5x as many candidates as there are spots. For instance, if a program has 10 spots and interviews 100 people, as long as you're ranked in the top 50%, you'll likely match. Makes the odds seem a bit less daunting, doesn't it?
Your probabilities are off - it's about 1 in 10 odds since most programs interview 10 applicants per place. Most good places go fairly far down their rank list because the match favors the applicant and the best applicants have their pick
You misunderstood what I was trying to say. If a program goes to #27 on their list after interviewing 80 people, then 27/80 (roughly 1/3) interviewees will be in matchable position for that program. For that particular program, 53/80 (~2/3) interviewees would not have been able to match there.
I’m hopeful, though, that most programs go further down their list than #27, as molecularmimicry is saying.
can any PDs/APDs comment on how much consideration is given to the interview itself as far as rank position goes? I.e. if your stats were on the lower end but you had an impressionable interview, how much stock is given to that scenario vs. say a student with really sexy numbers and an otherwise average interview? Obviously this is vague and your impression will be radically subjective, but generally speaking how much does the interview affect an applicants rank position?
Not a PD but based on what my home PD told us at our program the application and interview are of fairly equal importance.
The application gets you the interview; the interview gets you ranked.
