  1. According to the previous results it should start coming soon.
  2. @Volition I checked the portal and it said not admitted. No letter or anything. I specialize in Comparative and IR.
  3. Well I received another rejection. This time from UVic.
  4. I am expecting to hear from Victoria soon. The deadlines were roughly similar to York so it should be rolling in couple of days.
  5. Just received my rejection from York. I just checked the portal and it said "reviewed - unsuccessful". I am really devastated about this. I guess I'd been dreaming for too long.
  6. Good luck with the rest of your applicatons @Pahi. Let's keep this topic updated
  7. Hopefully! I am basically doing IR/Comparative too. I feel like my International status is making the process longer. So stressed out!
  8. Congratulations! Can you tell us about your subfield and how did you receive the acceptance?
  9. Congratulations! I hope I can hear a positive reply from them too.
  10. This might be a long shot but anyone who wants to claim York University acceptance?
  11. I applied to York too as my first choice. Faculty there is great. I am especially interested in Professor Gill's work on "disciplinary neoliberalism" and "new constitutionalism", which constitutes a part of my theoretical framework of my Master's thesis. It would be a dream come true if I get an offer from there to be honest.
  12. I was going to but they have a very European approach. As you mentioned, they require a whole research planned out. I also realized they need a certain level of French language proficiency as students are required to take at least 2 classes in French. I learned French in high school but I completely lost my proficiency so I gave up
  13. Looking at the previous results, probably some time between late February to early April depending on the school.
  14. Yeah one of those entered their GPA as 3.21. I don't think that's realistic for Berkeley. Definitely a troll! P.S: Kolay gelsin @ugurcanevci
  15. I completely understand how you feel and at the same time I am glad that I am not the only one here that feels the same. I am reading extensively on "state of exception" theory for my Master's thesis and seeing interpretations of it in diverse fields is really widening my perspective. I was expecting to see lots of legal and political analysis before I began reading related articles, but I never thought that I would read papers related to geography and agree with most of them. It is crazy to think how much there is to read and comprehend but how little time we have to do so.
