School psychology PsyD and waitlists


Recommended Posts

Hi all! I’ve searched around here high and low for some answers, but found most to be in regards to clinical psychology and other fields. 

My question is in regards to School Psychology, specifically PsyD programs and waitlists. 

I interviewed (at U. Albany) and was waitlisted with a letter stating that “historically, they have been able to accept students off of the waitlist,” but realistically, what does that mean? Does that actually happen? Or is it like a back burner slowly waiting to die out with the longest prolonged rejection ever? 

I’m sincerely heart broken and really hoping it happens more often than I think it does, especially since it seems at least one other person, thus far, is waitlisted as well. 

Any insight is appreciated

If you look at the NASP website, historically only a small fraction of accepted students to Albany actually end up attending. In the 2017/2018 cycle, they accepted 15 students but only 4 ended up attending. Given the high incidence of rejected offers, I'd say you should keep hoping for the best! 

People are still being indecisive, myself included, so you never know what you'll learn the closer we get to April 15...
