    Nope. I checked. I get antsy and regularly check the app status.

    Fall 2019 Clinical Psychology Canadian Applicants!

    Hello all, Just checked my status on the York my file page and it says "Reviewed - Unsuccessful". So I guess that's that. It was pretty fast so clearly I didn't meet one of their more important criteria. Just a heads up if anyone else is checking their application status frequently, like I was

    Add me to the list please. Also 4 schools. And 3 already had interviews and acceptance rounds ?

    Thank you for the information. I didn't apply to Queens, however, it is interesting to note that some programs discuss international applicants in a separate meeting. I guess it has to do with funding and similar matters? (I am international as well)

    Take care of yourself. It's awesome you have an interview. Remember, you are also there to "interview" them as well. You might be working closely with some of them for quite some time. Drink enough water (helps with tiredness) and take breaks outside if you can to clear your head. If you can, try to enjoy the interview as well. You can do this! ?

    I just checked mine and it still says "No decision yet". But not very hopeful. Sorry for the bad news pearl_lyng Did you receive an email notifying you that the status changed?

    I find it so fascinating and I didn't even realize that some people might not be aware of the forum / results page. I've been faithful looking at it weekly (or more) since last summer. Don't get too caught up in it though. The community here is much more friendly

    Oh thank you that's so nice of you. I applied to Clinical Developmental, so probably not the same POI. Good thing I will have a busy week ahead at work to keep me busy. I might have jumped the gun there a little. And rewatching Frasier keeps me sane. I recommend it for other forum friends who need a new addiction to keep their mind off this process for a while ?

    I PM-ed Magnolias to check if we have the same POI at York, but I guess he or she is busy preparing for interview, which I don't blame them at all But yeah, I also assumed rejection since the Open House will be mid February (according to several sources). We'll just wait a bit more and see.

    Congrats again Mickey! Has anyone else heard from U of R? I've been refreshing my Inbox so much I think it will soon break ? Also, any other news from York? Ahh this time of the year is making me so antsy ?

    Is this the case for Canada too? I knew that there was a US trend pushing for social workers/ master's level clinicians to take over PhD tasks, however, is it the same for Canada? Are social workers trained sufficiently to perform these clinical duties?

    I was hoping for some news from York by the end of this week. Does anyone know anything about interviews/ shortlisting - even if it's not official? I'm personally a little disheartened - my POI has not replied to a second email I sent after applying (although initially they mentioned to keep them posted of any updates, and I had an update). I realize that they are very busy, I just hope it's not bad news.

    I doubt that it happens often, at least in clinical psychology, whether it's US or Canada... Think about it from their point of view - you have so many great applicants and you take the time to narrow down to a couple that you really like, wouldn't you at least schedule a Skype to get to know them a little? Especially since even in research-oriented programs the students still have to do clinical hours? I personally am still amazed that there are grad programs that admit without interview - when you have to work with that person closely for so many years, it helps to try to get to know them a little. It seems to me very different from undergrad. I haven't received any interviews yet so I can commiserate how stressful the waiting can be. But I guess if you don't receive an interview request, it's a small chance you will be admitted (unless you're on the waiting list and get an interview from there). Sorry if I'm the bearer of bad news

    I agree! I had a hunch about UVic given the Results page, but it would be so much better if we knew. I understand that some of the applicants are still under review/ on waitlist, but I doubt that most are still under consideration. Put me out of my misery sooner rather than later lol

    Hello everyone, First of all congratulations for the interview invites! It sounds so exciting. NeuropsychologyNerd - I also applied to UVic and noticed on the Results page that some people are already receiving interview invites. I have not received anything. Oh and I am also applying with a master's. I applied to only 4 universities (due to multiple circumstances) and I am starting to get a little jittery after seeing that Best of luck!

    Interview scheduling with POI and then......

    I am going to echo this message and say that it's very likely that things just got a little bit hectic for your POI. Unless you sent a message of "get out of here with your stupid invite", I am sure there's nothing you said in your email that triggered a no response. I've seen emails from several departments from the past week mentioning how crazy busy it was and to just wait for status update because they will get back to us soon. So hold tight, you have great news, enjoy the holidays!

    Whaaat? That's insane. Wasn't the deadline December 1st? Wow. I didn't know programs make decisions that fast. Congratulations! and enjoy the ride

    Oh, I see. I agree that the forum can be a bit stressful at times. However, since most people in my life have trouble understanding this experience (since they've never been through anything similar), I personally find a lot of comfort through the sharing on here. Someone mentioned in another thread how they couldn't stop re-reading their SOPs and I could related to that feeling so much. I was glad I wasn't alone in this and going slightly crazy And I appreciate that we can often provide much needed perspective to one another. Good luck everyone with your applications and please remember to take care of yourself as well!

    Wow.. sad to see you go. I just don't understand, what could people on here be misleading about? I usually give credit to most info on here (maybe I'm too naive), since it's all anonymous. As in, I don't understand what someone could gain from posting not so truthful information on gradcafe. Again, I'm sorry you've had this experience.

    Hello everyone :) It's great to meet you. I just submitted (a couple of days ago) my applications to UVic and UBC. I've been waiting quite a while to join you all. How's everybody doing?
