    lanalingam got a reaction from TakeruK in Does this mean that i have been accepted?   
    I had an interview with UoE yesterday and two hours after the interview, the programme head emailed me saying that he is recommending that I am offered a place on the programme. He followed it up by saying that when they talk to a student who has met the requirements of the highest category, they are able to make a recommendation immediately, as in my case. He also added that I would receive notification through the admission portal in due course. Does this mean that I have been accepted? or is it still a maybe until I actually get the letter?
    I know I should wait since it has been just a day since he sent the email, but I am just really nervous as this is my dream programme.

    I agree with 3dender. You sound like you are a pretty good student anyway, so your overall G.P.A would be good anyway, even if it is not as good as it would be if you did just psychology. To me, college is all about exploring and discovering interests and learning in detail about things which interest me. Sure, grad schools do like students with high G.P.A's. But, they are also interested in what motivates you, and how dedicated you are to pursuing your interests. As 3dender said, you can always get field experience to boost your phD app., but not using this opportunity will probably just screw with your head later on.

    You should make the decision based on your interests and not on how easy the grades will be.  It sounds like you may be leaning psychology despite being less interested in it, but decisions like that often don't pay off in the long run (mostly in terms of mental health).  If your grades suffer in the joint program you can always get some field experience to bolster your PhD app.
