NOTE: Due to the limited number of APA- and CPA-accredited positions available in Phase II, along with the high desirability of these positions, students who applied only to accredited programs in Phase II (due to personal choice and/or restrictions by their graduate programs) likely experienced greater difficulty in getting matched.

NOTE: A small number of students (less than ten) seeking Ed.D. degrees were included in the Ph.D. category in order to prevent individuals from being identified.
