  1. I got admitted to SFU MSc Computing Science program, received the official letters just yesterday. It's probably worth waiting. As I told earlier as well, it's better to have nothing over a rejection.
  2. Better to be waitlisted than getting rejected at an instant. You guys still have fighting chance...Hang on
  3. What program did you apply in Concordia? Lol why so? Though I agree things haven't been going too well for us folks who applied for Canada. What's your status for SFU?
  4. You should mail them and ask your status. Also, heard anything from SFU?
  5. Via Email, today.
  6. Reject from McGill.
  7. Can't say. They said they'll role out decisions by April end.
  8. Yup. Final week of wait hopefully... Its possible but chances are slim for that. Don't know, I just feel next week is the final week.
  9. Hah! Good luck man Stony Brook is awesome! I didn't apply anywhere else except Canada so its the ONLY option I have.
  10. Saw an admit from McGill in the results section. Had my hopes high for a second but I got nothing. No admit so far.
  11. Any admit so far? What are you waiting on?
  12. hahaha same here man... I sometimes wonder..What are the chances..So many people getting left out this year from Canada. It was supposed to welcome us haha that's what Trudeau has been promoting ever since Trump assumed presidency. But guess not. And I have all the reasons to believe next year its going to be a shitstorm of enormous applications plaguing the small number of universities that Canada has to offer.
  13. For the international folks waiting for McGill's decision, do you know that we require a Qu├ębec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) before filing for VISA, and it can take anywhere between a month to two months to arrive? Once that arrives, the VISA is filed and it can take another month or something to arrive. Basically it will be a tight schedule for international people accepted at the end of April for September session.
  14. I think yes. For both of these universities too this logic applies. For SFU though things are different, they haven't sent any waves yet (no rejections). They've sent a couple offers but not too many (from personal interaction). Maybe they are actually yet to announce the results. Did you get in anywhere you applied to? What universities are you waiting on?
  15. I got rejected just a couple days back. It most likely means you're on a waitlist and your chances of getting an offer are positive, if not certain. That's why they're still keeping you. I assume they recently sent rejects to people who were a bit on the lower side of waitlist, who most likely won't make it to the acceptance list. Atleast that's my thinking.
