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: Students seeking Ed.D. degrees were included in the Ph.D. category in order to prevent individuals from being identified.


*NOTE: Due to unusual circumstances, three applicants who were matched in Phase I were released from their Match commitments by APPIC. These applicants were eligible to participate in Phase II. In addition, one site, one program, and three positions that were previously filled in Phase I were added into Phase II.
