What was the most interesting question?

"I can't think of one particular question but I was asked several questions about my honors thesis which seemed to go very well as I was studying the same concepts as my POI." More from this Member | Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What questions do you have for me? My interview with the Psych Chair was all my questions, and I struggled to have a half hour worth of questions!" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The clinical training. To a question about which theoretical therapeutic orientations are taught, one grad student literally said "they tell you to go in with patients and do what you want / what you feel like." Also, only given 10 days advanced notice of interview day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The atmosphere just didn't quite fit me. It seemed a bit too prim and proper, but I am VERY laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my POI probably wasn't accepting students. I probably wouldn't have made the trip had I known." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good program with good reputation. Will train you to be a researcher, not so sure about quality of clinical training. Did not offer a tour of facilities/campus. Impression/vibe is: they are Duke, they know they are Duke, so you cater to and impress them, not vice-versa. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the interview was good. It was three interviews and then we were just in a waiting room, but it wasn't bad and we did have people pop in to talk with us or take us on tours or things of that nature. I wish I had known about my POI before coming, but what can you do? Also, if you get lost on campus, do not ask people where the Psych building is because no one knows! I found that out the hard way!" More from this Member | Report Response
