  1. Does anyone know when applicants are notified about interviews and/or offers at UBC-Van and McMaster's?
  2. I think so! Mine says pending as well! I assume it says that until it is updated with the results. Regarding the 'Required' status, if I click on view requirements it says my reference assessments are complete but statement of interest and official transcript (which I believe they do not need until you get an offer - an unofficial transcript is fine) are labeled 'required'. I also think this is fine because the status legend mentions that these statuses remain this way until they are manually updated by the graduate program.
  3. Hi everyone! Hope everything is going well as deadlines loom closer. I was wondering if it is common to include references (as footnotes) in statements of interest? I have not because I have referred to potential supervisors' research more generally, but wondering if I should add some in. Thanks!
  4. I feel this so much haha. I had the same question and emailed the grad coordinator a while ago asking if it would be okay to also attach a CV, and the only reply I got was "A CV is not required." This definitely did not answer my question so still unsure if I will attach my CV. I am also finding it difficult to include everything in the one page statement of interest, so I would really like to submit my CV as long as I am not in some way penalized for doing this. Also curious, are you submitting 2 references or 3? It doesn't specify on the RCT program page so I am assuming only 2 are needed?
  5. Can anyone who is applying to Mac confirm this? As I understand it, the RCT application deadline is Dec 1st, but since the reference forms are not emailed out until you submit the app, you should be submitting well before the deadline to ensure references respond in time? Or is there a later reference due date that I have not noticed? Thanks!
  6. For anyone keeping track of schools changing GRE requirements . . . I now have email confirmation that the University or Regina is also no longer requiring the GRE for this admissions cycle.
  7. Little update - I believe Western is waiving the GRE as well! https://psychology.uwo.ca/graduate/future_students/application_process.html#application
  8. Great to see more people on this thread! I took a break over the last month from worrying about applications, but I am starting to get into the thick of things again . . . I have seen a lot about people wondering whether they should still do the general GRE with it being waived at most schools. Personally, I already wrote it last summer and was prepared to rewrite to boost my quant score. This is still my plan (hoping to write by September), but if I am not happy with my score, I will not include it (which is def nice to have as an option). I was hoping a strong GRE score could stil
  9. Lol I feel that - love those schools but my French is abysmal. Re contacting supervisors . . . I also am tempted to jump the gun and email them, but I think I will wait until August for my few top ones and then September for any others (depending on the responses from my first batch of emails)!
  10. I may have to write the psych GRE as well, but I am waiting to come up with my final list of schools before I start worrying about that. Most of the programs I am looking into do not require it. Do you know if the psych one is also being offered online?
  11. Agreed! Was kinda hoping schools would be letting prospective students apply without GRE scores with everything that is going on . . . but of course ETS is going online and sustaining the massive profit they make every year lol
  12. Those are definitely great schools :). And thanks! I am just hoping to bump my quant score to at least a 50 lol. I am definitely very excited to apply -especially with not much to do right now with everything locked down. I just finished my BSc honours in psyc and this will be my first time applying . . . so I am also a little nervous. Hopefully there is some more activity on this thread in the coming months!
  13. So glad you started this up!! I am applying this fall to Clinical Psychology programs in Canada and already have my eye on a few laboratories with clinical supervisors at UBC and Western. How are people feeling about doing online versions of the GREs? I did mine last summer but then decided to take a gap year before applying. I am now thinking of rewriting because although I did well overall, my quant score leaves something to be desired (V=94%ile, Q=45%ile, A=92%ile). However, I am not sure how I feel about writing the GRE from home (thanks to covid). Excited to hear about everyone's applicat
