MATCH-NEWS is a FREE e-mail list provided by APPIC as a service to Match participants. It is VERY STRONGLY recommended that all internship applicants (as well as academic and internship Training Directors) subscribe to this list as early as possible in the process (i.e., subscribe NOW if you plan to apply for internship in the fall of 2010). MATCH-NEWS is an "announce-only" list, which means that only APPIC can post messages to the list. The volume of e-mail messages will generally be very small, usually ranging from zero to five messages per month. As the Match approaches, the MATCH-NEWS list will be the primary method of communicating important late-breaking news and information about the Match, as well as tips and suggestions about how to make the most of the process. Many applicants from previous years have told us that the messages posted to MATCH-NEWS were extremely helpful to them in navigating the selection process. NOTE: If you previously signed up for the MATCH-NEWS list, there is no need to do so again. To subscribe to the MATCH-NEWS list, send a blank e-mail message to the following address: subscribe-match-news@lyris.appic.org. You will subsequently receive an e-mail message (with the subject line, "Your confirmation needed") that contains instructions for you to follow in order to confirm your subscription. Simply follow the instructions in that message and you will soon receive a "Welcome" E-mail in response. This "Welcome" e-mail confirms that you are successfully subscribed to the list (please note that you are NOT subscribed to the list until you have received the "Welcome" message). PLEASE NOTE: If your e-mail program uses "Spam" or "Junk Mail" filtering, it is possible that the confirmation message from the APPIC server will be automatically redirected to your "Junk Mail" folder without your knowledge. If you do not receive a confirmation message in your "In" box, you should check your "Spam" or "Junk Mail" folder to see if the message is there. See the contact info below if you have difficulty subscribing.

APPIC also maintains a separate e-mail list, called INTERN-NETWORK, which is a discussion list for internship applicants. This list is optional for applicants, though many find it useful. Applicants can use this list to discuss various aspects of the selection process or to ask questions about the AAPI, interviews, Match, etc. Since this list can generate considerable discussion at times, and thus considerable e-mail, subscribers may wish to use the list's "Digest"
option in order to keep e-mail to a minimum (see www.appic.org, click on "E-mail Lists," then on "Intern-Network" for more info about the Digest option). To subscribe to the INTERN-NETWORK list, send a blank e-mail message to:
and follow the confirmation instructions as described above for the MATCH-NEWS list.
For general information about the APPIC Match, see:
http://www.appic.org/ and click on "About the Match" and "Frequently Asked Questions." General information is also available at the matching program website: http://www.natmatch.com/psychint by clicking the links in the "Overview" and "Match Process" sections. For complete information about all of APPIC's e-mail lists, see www.appic.org and click on "E-mail Lists."

If you have any questions about these lists or about the APPIC Match in general, you may contact Dr. Greg Keilin at gkeilin@mail.utexas.edu or (512) 475-6949.
