    Fall 2017 CANADIAN clinical psychology

    When I visited last week, I met a clinical student who had been accepted at the masters level. I'm assuming that means that they have sent out their first round of offers (at least)

    Fall 2017 CANADIAN clinical psychology

    I applied to the Applied Social stream rather than the Clinical one, but I got a call from my supervisor Wednesday telling me I was accepted...Hopefully that means that clinical isn't too far behind! I hope you hear something soon

    Fall 2017 CANADIAN clinical psychology

    My friend did, but not for clinical. She has an unofficial offer and is waiting on the official one to come in...not sure how different their clinical training stream is, but things are definitely moving along there!

    Fall 2017 CANADIAN clinical psychology

    I didn't apply for clinical, but I was nominated for a scholarship at uSask that I was told would be decided mid-march...I would guess admissions decisions would be around the same time as the scholarship decisions I haven't heard much from them though and the waiting is killing me!

    Cringe-worthy (again) >_<

    I was talking to my POI about how I was fluent in French when another professor (who is a native French speaker) heard and came over. He started speaking to me in French, but I was so anxious that I stumbled over my words and ended up answering in English. Not terrible, but the memory certainly makes me cringe

    Canadian Social and Forensic

    When I was applying to my Masters a couple of years ago, the interviews/open house was around mid-February (also around the time I got my rejection )

    UGH hopefully they pick up some speed! I hate waiting and I would really like to hear back from them

    @selfservingbias I haven't heard anything yet either! The silence is unnerving

    Canadian Social and Forensic

    Just wondering if anyone had heard from Canadian social or forensic programs? Specifically York, Gueph and Saskatchewan for Social, and UOIT and Carleton for Forensic? I've been following the Canadian clinical thread, but their deadlines and stuff seem to be a bit different

    Social Psychology Fall 2017 Applicants

    I'm applying to social and forensic PhD programs as well (in Canada though)! So far I've applied to a couple applied social psychology programs, one social-personality program, one forensic psychology program, and I have one more forensic psych application due in the fall. My research interests are focused on the study of sexual violence, sex offenders, and risk assessment for sexual offenders. The good stuff: I have several volunteer and paid research experiences in my area of interests and a couple unrelated ones, 2 submitted manuscripts (not in psychology) and 2 more that are almost ready to be submitted, 5 national/international conference presentation and several more local/provincial ones, and I'm 2nd on a $15,000 grant. The not so good: Due to some unforeseen circumstances, my MA thesis is more health psychology focused (and I find it terribly dull). The 2 submitted manuscripts I have are not in psychology and are in low impact journals (which is normal for the discipline) and I have nothing accepted so far. Overall, I feel pretty okay about my application but I can't help but be nervous! I hate all of the waiting

    Forensic psych options - Canada & US

    I am a forensic psych student in Canada! There are a few options here. Most are general experimental programs with supervisors who focus on forensic areas (from my understanding)

    Fall 2017 Applications

    I'm planning to apply for experimental PhDs in the area of Forensic Psych. I'm currently finishing up my MA at a small Canadian university. I have a lot of conference posters and oral presentations, but no publications (which is stressing me out a little) and a high UG and MA GPA. Hopefully that is enough to at least get some interviews!

    Laurentian University

    It is! The only people I know are a few people from undergrad, so it is nice to meet other Canadian psych students

    Laurentian University

    It's a fairly small university, so I am not really expecting to find anyone...but are there other people who are going to Laurentian?
