  1. Hi all, I'm a current PhD clinical psychology student at York U. If anyone has any questions about the application process or York U specifically, they can feel free to reach out to me!
  2. It's not impossible to hear by the end of Dec., but it's pretty unlikely! Interview invites in Canada usually start going out in early/mid January, and then can keep going on until April (though the later it gets, the less likely it is you'll get an interview). Last year I had 2 interviews in February and 1 in March (the March one was the one I was eventually accepted to!) it really depends on the POI and when they and the decision committee gets around to making the first round of cuts (for people who don't meet the minimum criteria). Good luck- try not to spend your holidays stres
  3. Honestly a lot of profs dont even look at anything you attach to emails as they dont want to bias their application process. If you were a strong applicant, most profs will never say so. Most have a very generic email that they paste to the many students that contact them. Basically, I wouldnt read into it at all!
  4. I had never met or spoken to my POI prior to my interview with him. I had sent him an email saying I was applying and got a generic "thanks, I'll be contacting those short listed, etc etc". The real connection happened during the interview. That being said, 2 people in my cohort are now being supervised by profs they had worked for prior to starting grad school. So connections can help, but not having them isnt a bad thing either.
  5. Ive done so; the programs usually didnt give much input but reaching out to POIs helped! Some didnt answer, but the ones that did had some helpful advice/thoughts on why I had been rejected and what I could do in the future cycles to stand out.
  6. ^ seconding what he said above. If you have to repeat something twice word for word, you probably didnt explain it well enough to begin with.
  7. Yep! When my POI told me it didnt go through, he told me it was because of my grades. Basically, they werent high enough.
  8. It happened to me with Regina 2 years ago, but i dont think its common at all.
  9. Id suggest emailing your specific POI(s) and asking if their interviews/acceptances have gone out. If you didnt list someone as a POI its not likely youd get an interview or acceptance from them.
  10. I heard from my POI about 3 days after my interview that he had put in a recommendation, then got my official offer about a week after that. So probably about a week or so!
  11. After the open house, most of the profs have sent in their recommendations for admission for first round. Im not 100% sure if the admission letters have gone out officially. There is a chance that some of the priority POI have turned down the students they brought to the open house/decided not to take a student, or that people will decline outright though, so its possible there may be a couple POIs who will do interviews between now and around April. The people that arent still being considered as backups/possibilities for other pois will likely get a second round of rejections sometime soon.
  12. Not sure about any of the others, but York is having their open house today. After that, the first round of acceptances should be going out relatively soon after (although reading week may delay this a bit). With that being said, for York last year 4 out of the 8 people in the accepted class did not attend the open house, so don't give up hope until you receive a rejection!
