I think someone on this thread has turned down a UTSC offer...but no one that I am aware of has been flat out rejected.

Yeah I saw that. Just curious if anyone has accepted as that could help me infer how many spots may remain undecided

Hello all! I had a question about the waitlist and was hoping someone would have some insight. How exactly does a waitlist work? I've been told that the waitlist is not really a "list" but rather you just need the person who currently holds the offer to turn it down and then it will come to you (so it's not like you're Xth position in the waitlist and the offer needs to get passed down through other waitlisted candidates ahead of you until it comes to you). Is this correct? 

Normally that is how it works. 

There can also be outside factors involved that have nothing to do with you. Sometimes students are waitlisted depending on funding (maybe the program can only accept you if you get CGS-M, or if you supervisor gets a grant renewed, etc.). And sometimes students are waitlisted because their potential supervisor isn’t high on the list to accept students. For example, maybe a program can accept 7 students and your POI is #8 on the priority list, so their ability to take a student is dependent on someone else’s offer being rejected.

The clinical committee met last week, so I would expect offers to go out very soon (some offers may have been made already). I know a lot of grad students in that program and the time between their interviews and admission varied a lot, so don’t worry too much if you haven’t heard yet.

Does anyone know any human being enrolled in the PsyD program at Adler University? And what they think of it?

I have a colleague who completed his doctorate at Adler, completed several accredited practicum placements in well-recognized hospital settings, and currently has a position at one of these hospitals. I would say that this is a rare outcome for a PsyD graduate, but not impossible. You may want to connect with the program and ask them where recent graduates have found employment to see what historical information they can provide.

I emailed UofT and McGill clinical but neither has responded yet. I haven’t seen any acceptances in the results for either program, so I’m thinking they haven’t sent out their first round of admissions. My friend got her refusal letter from mcgill a few weeks ago so I think maybe if you haven’t heard from them, you might still be in the running? Has anyone interviewed or heard back from either McGill or UofT clinical? 

In other news, I contacted someone at Dalhousie and she told me that first round of offers have gone out and they’re waiting on responses before sending the next round. She also told me that they don’t send rejection letters until there’s no spots left to offer. 

I hope we all hear back soon!

If you've been wait listed, then don't get past the wait list are you notified by a certain date? Or are you forever unsure haha

You are wait listed at uOttawa right? Same here....and it might be a long wait for us . I know someone who got off the wait list a few years ago and they didn't find out until mid April (after the first round deadline went by).

I emailed OISE (for CCP) and they said applicants should hear back within the next couple of weeks.

Finally, Concordia said the official “nope”to my clinical psychology aspirations. But at least they thoroughly and comprehensively explained their decision in the letter: no place. Nooooow I get it!! 😂😂

Called Concordia.. program assistant said most of the offers went out and the remainder will we sent out today. I was waitlisted so I'm assuming it will be a rejection since most of the other applicants applying to my POI applied only to Concordia
