  1. Honestly, I wouldn't. Updating about scholarships makes sense because departments only have a certain amount of funding, which limits the amount of students they can take in a given year. Getting a scholarship may mean they don't have to worry about finding money for you that year. While getting more experience and a first authorship is GREAT, it doesn't change the funding situation for the programs you're waitlisted at. Just my opinion, though.
  2. I'm in the same boat as you. It's a bitter pill to swallow and tbh I don't know if I will apply again next year. It just feels so pointless 😞 Edit: sorry to hear you got rejected as well, it fucking sucks
  3. Someone posted an acceptance on Feb 20th. I've emailed a few people at York hoping to get some answers. It's past the time my POI said I would have heard back by and they have not responded to a follow-up email asking for an update on my status. If I hear anything, I'll post here.
  4. I absolutely hate being the one to break it to you, but if you look at that result again, you'll notice that the interview invite was extended on January 20. Whoever submitted that result only added it today, but it looks like the interview was over a month ago
  5. I'm not 100% sure, but I think just by applying you are automatically considered for certain scholarships. It used to be that you were considered for a QEII at the U of C if you applied for tri-council funding (ie, the applications were combined) but the QEII was discontinued last year (THANKS JASON KENNEY). But perhaps something else took its place and that's the scholarship you were awarded?
  6. Do you know which scholarship it is? I would be surprised if it was a tri-council (SSHRC, NSERC, or CIHR) because those decisions usually aren't released until April 1, so I think it must be a different kind of scholarship. Scholarships are great though, it still might help!
  7. NO and it's killing me too My POI (not SF tho) said late February/early March so I/we might still have a week to wait, but I hope it's not that long. My nerves are completely fried. Edit: someone was accepted last week in the CD stream, but I think the offers are going out quite variably so I'm not panicked yet. My POI did tell me that he'd let me know either way (i.e., rejected or accepted)
  8. Not to mention that it disadvantages people who don't have the money or time to study for the GRE more than once. Even doing it once, and applying for one cycle, is a huge strain on financial resources. If psychology is serious about valuing diversity in their grad programs and beyond, they need to address this system. I'm sorry it's not working out this cycle I also have a Master's degree in experimental psych and my quant GRE score was terrible. I'm 1000000% sure it impacted my interview offers this cycle. I just didn't have the time to study for it all over again. Not to mention I aced the three grad-level stats courses I was in, which you'd think would be more important. I'm not bitter. Not at all. 😬
  9. I checked the results page and no one has posted about either of those programs this year. From past years, some people didn't hear that they were accepted until early March. You can always reach out to the graduate program coordinator for both schools and ask for an update!
  10. A little off topic, but you will love the UAlberta campus. It's gorgeous!
  11. Just saw that someone posted about being rejected from York yesterday in the results section. If that person sees this, can you tell me if you attended the open house last week? They were very vague about when offers will go out after the open house and the waiting is killing me.
  12. Yes! My husband is also applying for PhDs, although in a different field. We applied to the same schools or schools that were close to each other. By some frigging miracle, it looks like it might work out for us. He got accepted to the school I *just* interviewed at.
  13. I am! I'll DM you! If anyone else is going feel free to DM me
