    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Canadian Applicants!

    Agreed about it easing minds, I've written off 2 schools so far (Dal and Concordia) because it sounds like the interview days have already happened, but it'd be nice to know officially if that's the case. I did emphasize in my replies back that it wasn't a reflection of my interest in the program, just an unfortunate scheduling issue - hopefully it won't be a factor in deciding acceptances. The guides I posted above suggested that POIs do understand this happens, like you said

    @calvindude1111 Aside from the great advice provided by others here, if you want a comprehensive overview of the requirements and process for applying to clinical psychology programs I'd highly recommend Mitch's Uncensored Advice Guide (free) and the Insider's Guide to Graduate Programs in Clinical and Counseling Psychology (about $30). Hope that helps!

    Has anyone had any interview conflicts yet? I've had 2 come up so far - Fri Feb 8th is a very popular interview day apparently! I had to ask for alternative dates for those 2 because I'd already booked non-refundable flights 2 weeks ago for the first invite that came in. In one case it seemed like the accommodation wasn't a big deal, but in the other, it means I won't be able to meet my POI in-person because he's travelling and is only available on the official interview day I'm disappointed about that, but can't be helped at this point. I wish all Canadian schools posted their interview days like the US, so I could be aware about potential conflicts and prioritize them ahead of time just in case.

    Yes 😐 Got a jolt from the subject line, "Register for Open House" only to see it was generic. I would suggest it's not worth attending unless you already live in the area - it seems pretty general and geared towards undergrads with limited focus on grad programs.

    Still nothing on my end, and I haven't seen anything on the results page or forum either. I hope they start reaching out soon!

    That is odd - in that case, don't listen to me! I'd suggest emailing or calling the grad secretary today to ask if they are still issuing invitations.

    @neocortical.coffee and @s_bellow Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I think the official interview invites for UTSC went out last week - the admissions committee met on Jan 14th to review all applicants after initial Skype interviews with POIs, then sent out official invites that evening. Still possible to receive an in-person after the official interview day though, you never know who will decline or drop out of the running!

    Re: McGill, is this for the Counselling MA? If yes, internship or project stream? Thanks very much

    No, it was just one informal Skype interview with the POI. She said next stage would be Skype interviews with other faculty, etc. like you just described. Sounds like I didn't make the cut unfortunately. Disappointing, but this is all part of the process Good luck with your application, I hope you get an offer!

    Is this for the formal interviews, or a Skype interview? I had a Skype interview that I thought went quite well about 10 days ago, but haven't heard anything since.

    I applied too and I haven’t heard anything yet.

    Child Clinical Programs?

    I can't remember the source of this list, but I downloaded it last year from an association or society focused on child clinical psychology. Hope this is helpful! I'll try to track down the source and post it here if I can find it. Child and Adolescent Clinical PhD and Masters Grad School List.xlsx

    Hi guys, just a heads up that Waterloo in-person invites will be the week of Jan 28th and Feb 4th. It sounds like there is no open house, it's just interviews. Received this info from the POI when I was emailed for a Skype interview. Message me directly if you'd like my POI's initials.
