The great big clinical psychology doctoral application progress thread 2022

Post by miriam »

Following the usual tradition this is your space to record your progress for 2022!

This is the single thread in which you can post about hearing from courses, interview dates and your progress in the application process. Please do not post elsewhere on the forum, as we don't want to flood the rest of the content or make it impossible for users who are not part of this process to see when other topics are updated.

How to use this thread

Please post the names of the courses you have applied to, indicating whether you are self-funding, and using the colour code below to indicate your stage and outcomes.

BLACK for courses you haven't heard from yet (this includes courses where you have been invited for an assessment task as these tasks for part of the shortlisting process before any decisions are taken about whether or not to invite you for interview
RED for no interview
ORANGE for reserve list interview
GREEN for interview
BROWN for an unsuccessful outcome after interview
CYAN for reserve list place
BLUE for offered place

Mark any self funding places with (self funding) after the location, to save anxiety for other forum members as these do not run on the same timetable as the competition for funded places.

Use regular black text to show a course which you have applied to, but haven't heard from yet (as the deadline for notification of interviews isn't until mid March). Once you get any more news, simply re-post your updates (with new colours) on this thread.

Since the selection tests are a replacement for paper sift shortlisting, there is not a colour for being invited to sit one of these, since the equivalent status for a non-assessment-test-using course is "application is with the shortlisters". You can note that you've been invited to selection, or if you have been informed you are not invited to sit the test then feel free to post that course in RED, as it was an unsuccessful application to that course. After the selection test results are out, please update with interview reserve, interview, or no interview when you hear the outcome.

Good luck everyone!

Remember: Do not post off-topic conversation or questions in this thread. You can post once to show where you have applied, but after that please wait to post when you have an update to report.

And finally, a sensible note from spatch:
A plea to folks on this thread. It's really helpful to see people who get interviews, but probably moreso when people post that they haven't. The process is notorious for making really good, capable candidates feel devalued, and people are often left alone with that feeling. Often family members, friends and peers not privy to the process don't really understand the levels of competition and what is involved. Hearing you are not alone is incredibly important so people don't internalise rejection and are able to see equally capable people struggling on this pathway. I know it's often validating to post successes and to keep quiet and lick your wounds when things haven't worked out, but please do post reds and browns as much as any other colour for that reason.

I wrote this open letter to rejectees in 2014 (which is scarily now 8 years ago) viewt ... 8&start=15 and I still stand by what I wrote back then and hope it brings comfort to someone. At selection for interview the gap between success and failure is so thin, I am now in the situation of actually hiring qualifieds for permanent posts being fully aware I was involved in rejecting them for a particular training course when they applied for training. As time moves on, I am aware I feel less and less certain about things, and more about the importance of applying compassion to this difficult and opaque process.
