Acceptances / rejections were sent out Tuesday (Feb. 13th), as a friend of mine received a rejection that day. This was for all the people who were invited to the interview.

For Guelph rejections have been sent out just for those who were interviewed? I was not interviewed so I am assuming rejection but haven't gotten anything formal yet.

Do people who didn't receive interviews get rejected later then?

Hi Everyone, 

I am also happy to have found this group. I am a first time applicant with a Master's degree in experimental psychology (MSc) and a specialist undergraduate degree in psychology research (BSc Hons). I was hoping to get some advice from those who are already in a clinical psychology PhD program about whether to accept an offer or not.  I applied to the following Clinical Psychology PhD programs: 

McGill

U of T Scarborough

U of Waterloo 

U of Windsor

York University

UBC

Concordia

So far, I interviewed and was recommended for admission at the University of Windsor (Adult Clinical) and was rejected from UBC. I did not get invited to interview at UTSC, McGill, U of Waterloo and York so I assume those might all be rejections. I am not sure about Concordia yet. 

I am also not sure if I will accept the offer from the University of Windsor (I have not heard anything about funding yet). My main goal is to go into academia (I have more of a research focus). My desire is not only to become a clinical psychologist, but I would also like to become a professor and run a lab. I got the impression that most of the students who graduate from the PhD program at Windsor become clinicians, primarily.  In addition, the professor at Windsor whose work I am interested in does research in an area that I am curious about, but it's not the perfect fit, although they seemed open to new ideas for the PhD. 

I also know that Clinical Psychology PhD programs are highly competitive and I am lucky to have received an offer the first time I apply. But I am not sure what to do. I am considering maybe I should wait, refine some of my research interests, better articulate them, try to get a publication and reapply next year. I am also thinking maybe of getting a second Master's degree in Clinical Psychology so that I increase my chances of getting into the programs and labs that do research I am really excited by. What would you do if you were in my shoes? 

Thank you in advance for reading my post and your advice. 

Hey, how did you know you got rejected at UBC? Email/letter/call? Were you invited to the first round of interviews?

Anyone got an update on UofT's Clinical & Counselling or UBC Vancouver Clinical Psychology program?

I received an email from my POI today for UOttawa for a Skype interview next week. So apparently they're starting to roll out for some profs!

Hey, do you mind sending me the initials of your POI as well, please?

My friend was interviewed (and then rejected) so I think those notices were only for people who were interviewed. I would suspect though that if you haven't heard back yet (and weren't invited to the interview day) that it's best to assume a rejection at this point, unfortunately.

Of course. Anyone who is interested in who my POI was for my UOttawa Clinical Psych PhD interview is welcome to PM me and ask!

My friend was accepted to the child track. I don’t know if it was an official offer or from her POI though.

Thanks for letting me know. I was interviewed but haven't heard back, so that's a bummer.

I haven't heard anything yet, nope :(. I interviewed a couple weeks ago for the child track. I am thinking about emailing in the next few days to ask when decisions will be communicated.

SFU always takes a while to get back to students after interviews. After looking back on my past emails, it's likely you'll hear back this week.

Hey All,

Do you mind posting your POIs initials here? The reason I ask is that I heard some profs take longer to provide their lists than others and based on my very brief correspondence with the school, some students have heard back but those specific POI's respond quickly etc. 

Let me know :) - I have a couple friends who are students at SFU and I can ask them!
