"The Wait" for the final notice

Hey everyone! I just took my phone interview this morning. Generally how long does it take for a notification for an acceptance or unacceptence? Last year I applied, it took almost a full month to notify that I didn't get in. Anyone know how soon to long?

Unfortunately it can vary greatly. For one CP, I found out in 11 days and for another it took me 6.5 weeks (the other 3 took about 3.5-4 weeks).

I had my interview last Sunday. My interviewer told me verbally on the phone that it should take 3 weeks. I got an email after the phone interview though telling me I should hear back within 2 weeks.

For my first college program it took about 3.5 weeks to hear back.

It's 2-4 weeks for most people. However, if you receive a pending e-mail, it's like a wait-list. Some people that are pended do get accepted, so don't lose hope! It just means they need more time to look over your application and see if they have a role for you.

It also depends on if people who have been accepted for whatever reason decide not to go (it does happen) then their spot can be filled by a pender/person on the waitlist. So, it takes a little longer because they need to see how many people that have been accepted are for sure going and if they will have room for you.

Are there specific reasons they move you onto a wait list? Like I have done a cp before, do they give preference to college students who have never done a cp?
