What was the most interesting question?

"i had mentioned a personal tragedy in my SOP (to explain a gap in my resume) and they gave their condolences, which took me aback, simply because it was very nice and thoughtful, and i had been worried about including the experience in the first place (vs just not mentioning a huge gap in my resume). " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was asked to describe a patient I have worked with and formulate a case conceptualization." More from this Member | Report Response

"I have experience working with sexual assault survivors and I did some social justice work about sexual violence in my undergrad. They asked why I thought women who were molested or otherwise abused were more likely then the average person to be victimized (in their case re-victimized)?" More from this Member | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"read over articles and abstracts and bios of researchers i was especially interested in, read over bios of other profs (you are randomly assigned a prof to interview with, even if you mentioned a specific one in your SOP, so have a general idea of who everyone is). read over program info very throughly and made a list of questions to ask, and though of my answers to likely questions. i was overprepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"Read over personal statement and program information." More from this Member | Report Response

"I read over my personal statement and looked at the professors of interest" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"the students were smart, thoughtful, and happy, the prof and graduate i interviewed with were wonderful, school did 100% in the internship match, early clinical exp., lots of great externship experience -- if they could have funded me more it really would have been a contender, but i got full scholarships elsewhere. loved this program!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students. They were all enthusiastic about the program (even on a Saturday morning) and seemed like people I would like to spent the next few years with. I also really liked the Professor I met with. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with him and felt like he would be an excellent mentor." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were very nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"no tour of facilities, and i wish all the faculty had been available, so i could have at least chatted w/ my POI and got a feel for working with them -- which indicates that this is a more clinically oriented program than may have been right for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Overall a very positive experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I have to confess when I first applied I did it strictly by region, rather than fit and research interest. I didn't research the schools in depth and I didn't know this was VERY psychoanalytic *and* non-research based. Considering I want to do research and am not psychoanalytic-ly minded, this was disappointing to discover" More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing. loved the school, as good as better funded programs but ... short on $. knew about the funding shortage, would have gone into debt to attend if didn't get in to better funded, also quality programs)." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school was a PsyD under the guise of a PhD, read not heavy on research and heavy on producing practitioners. " More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"relaxed, conversational. know about the program, think about your background, goals and your work as it relates to LIU, have a general idea of your research interests (and the work of the faculty) and then have fun chatting and meeting nice people. ask for a tour, or just poke around yourself. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Got there a little early and had the chance to chat with several current students and applicants. Met with professor and a recent graduate for individual interview. It was very relaxed and felt more like a conversation than an interview. Afterward, met again with current students who were supportive and encouraging. Overall great experience!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't remember the exact date because this was two years ago. It was very short and I'd come a long way for it. They also didn't give a tour. " More from this Member | Report Response
