I'm new to the whole application process and I'll be going to my first interview with Palo Alto University for their PsyD program. Has anyone ever interviewed there and can shed some light on what types of questions they may ask?
Isn't this usually the place where someone here asks if there's a plan in place to pay back the estimated 300K of debt from one's PAU education....?
Good luck! I would check out the "how to survive interview day" thread. I don't know how many current PAU students there are around these parts. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=595602
Also, if it's 10am-3pm, I am incredibly jealous. I'm not sure what's standard for PsyD programs, but my longest PhD interview so far was 7:30am-10pm (7 hours of faculty interviews, then hanging out/eating with grad students).
I know about the education costs at PAU and I've read all the posts in other threads to keep me wary. However, I would still like to do my best at this interview to keep my options wide open and I am looking for advice from current students on this particular interview day, which happens to be super long 10-3PM.
Hi Kriya! I'm going for my interview at the Consortium soon too! I'm really glad to hear you felt like the interviews felt friendly an comfortable. This is my first grad school interview and I'm pretty nervous. This may seem like a silly question, but I've seen a few people say that women should wear dress suits for interviews, would you say that's the case for this program as well, or were people dressed a little more casual?
Thanks for all your advice Kriya! I was also wondering what questions I should ask of the faculty to make it look like I'm interested in the program? Should I know about their research, like in most PhD program interviews?
when do interview offers or rejections usually go out for schools? I applied to 6 schools, have one interview, and two rejections. still haven't heard from Yeshiva, PAU, or Widener-Chester
