    Canadian MA clinical psychology admission, need advice

    For Ottawa you can also do a course in French as a language requirement. The French test is not an admission test, so you can do it anytime throughout your PhD. That being said, Ottawa is extremely competitive and given no one is doing the research you’re interested in, your odds are very low I would honestly suggest doing your GRE. If you want fast track, McGill is a direct PhD entry program so no masters degree is required - GRE is however. Its a crucial component to the application. I know you feel life is rushing by and you want to get in now, but I would say to take the year off and do the GRE. Be productive with your year off and get a job in research or any relevant field.

    Published abstract - any significance?

    Sorry - I should have been more specific. I meant the published abstract. Thank you!
  3. Hi everyone, I presented my research at a peer-reviewed scientific meeting and with that, my symposium speaker abstract was published in an open-access peer-reviewed journal. Is this even worth mentioning on a CV? It seems so trivial to me. Thanks!

    GRE and Clinical Psych (Canada) - should I retake?

    Thanks! I was actually rejected this year, but i have no publications. I just submitted a manuscript so fingers crossed it will help for next year . I'm certain this was my biggest weakness. I accepted a clinical research position in psychosocial oncology for the next year. Will definitely help. GPA will probably climb to 3.95/4. I did get a 5.5 for my written, so I'm not sure if it's worth retaking. My top choice is Ottawa and the GRE is not required. Congrats on your offer!

    I'm in the same boat for York.. I'm not holding my breath. I feel as though it is unlikely to get an acceptance at this point. I would love a response, however, so I can begin to plan my next steps.

    Is anyone still waiting to hear back from York?

    I think you can.. those who receive an offer have until the 15th to decide. If they were to decline on the deadline, it would make sense to offer the spot to the next candidate in line. I could be wrong but that is my impression.

    I e-mailed. Yeah I would definitely do it around end September-October. Applying to external funding helps as well. SOP is statement of purpose.

    Do you contact POIs prior to applying? I would make that a first step if you don’t. Contact multiple from the same school to ensure they are taking new students and are interested. How are your LORs and SOPs? I’m short listed at York and have received rejections all around, so I feel your pain. I have been told those are key areas to focus on, however.

    I believe it’s essentially a waitlist. I could be wrong. Which school is this for?

    Do you think everyone who has "No Decision Yet" is short listed? I'm tempted to e-mail the secretary to check my status..
