  1. You seem like a good candidate for Canadian schools, I wouldn't count yourself out just yet! Lots of strong experiences.
  2. mid-late august yielded a decent hit rate last time, if anything, they'll let you know when to follow up if they're unsure as to whether they'll be taking on a student or not.
  3. second time applying, eyeing UTSC, Queen's, UBC, and maybe Western/Ryerson. Also need to redo my jacked up GRE LOL, not sure how long it'll be online but guess I should get to studying asap.
  4. Hoping to apply too, will be my second cycle (last applied outta undergrad for fall 2019). Midway through my first year at a full time research position; into personality x psychopathology and assessment. Will need to rewrite my GREs because they sucked LMAO. Canadian aiming for some (very) research heavy R1s (dunno who's accepting yet), but who knows what the situation will be like with American schools taking on internationals.
  5. I'm intending on applying, and I'm curious as to what will happen post-covid (universities may end up losing money, if this trickles down to individual departments, maybe less funded spots? GREs waived in some programs in biomedical sciences--will that touch clinical psych? GRE is now moved online, so will that be a barrier or an advantage for folks? will more people apply? less people apply?) but at this point, who knows.
  6. I put mine in the same place, I did a page break and then my refs. You guys might want to start a central cgs-m questions thread, sounds helpful.
  7. I wouldn't focus so much on your own amazing theory (we all have them) because PIs usually don't care at this stage. I second other posters in maybe fitting in one of your ideas into a professors existing line of research, you're there to learn from them and develop your own ideas as you progress.
  8. The programs you listed take on more internationals than others I've seen. I know at our department, there was only one international student (that I knew of), and our clinical program basically didn't consider any internationals despite the fact that it wasn't stated on the website. US is much more international friendly--but departmental politics also make a difference as to whether they'll take one (both here and US). I'd say its more trouble than its worth for most CA programs to take on an international student, but you won't know until you apply.
  9. I can't think of anything outside of fulbright
  10. Generally fair to say its cumulative, but note that GPA conversions vary by the school grading scheme. In Canada, its a mix of cGPA, last two years, and occasionally last year.
  11. Howdy all, I'm wondering what the odds are getting into a R1 clinical psych program without 2 years postbacc/full-time coordinator work. I'm continuing in two labs at the moment, so I'm still actively RA-ing, but its not paid or full time. I'm freshly graduated, so one year short of the good ol' 2 year mark which seems to be the trend (looking at recent admissions). Odds are impossible to guess, but I'd like to hear from people who got in from a similar position, or without a 2 year position like that, and maybe what aspects of our application compensated for the absence of a full-time research position. Thanks!
  12. Trying to figure out if I want to apply this year again. Interested in UTSC, UBC, UVic, Queens and SFU, pending on who's taking students.
  13. Im in a similar position to you, and what I've come to realize is that clinical isn't a race; extra time won't really harm your application when your time is spent well. Again, depends on your goals and the schools you're applying to, but I think taking an extra year to get pubs and conferences done + full time research work will make you super competitive for sure.
  14. Canada isn't as hard on GREs, I've seen people admitted to clinical masters with scores below yours. Your scores are pretty decent.
