  1. I would also like to know if no news is good news. How true is this?
  2. Dealing with a very tough and very fresh break up here too, plus a couple of rejections from Master's programs. Feeling underwhelmed with life right now.
  3. Does anyone know how long U of T waits between rounds of admissions?
  4. Yeah believe it or not I actually forgot all about admissions for a while because of other stuff going on! I feel very lost right now, and not knowing about u of t isn't helping! I have a job interview Monday and I was hoping I would know what to tell them about school. Ugh.
  5. Congrats to everyone who has been accepted! No acceptance for me quite yet... Between things going on in my personal life and these rejections, I am having a really tough time keeping my chin up right now. Hopefully I get some good news/clarity soon.
  6. I'm almost convinced they're doing it on purpose just to mess with all of us at this point LOL
  7. I'm starting to get frustrated that ROSI is still unavailable! Terrible timing!
  8. Update: Acorn doesn't give any information
  9. "Northwestern University Economics, PhD (F17) Rejected via E-mail on 22 Mar 2017 Email to check website, implicit became explicit."
  10. If anyone is wondering, there is nothing on the results boards about U of T's 2 year MSW yet.
  11. How long is ROSI down for?
  12. Hey, just a friendly disagreement here! My GPA is 4.0 and I've received 1 rejection and a very likely rejection from York so far (I haven't heard anything and I know they sent out acceptances/waitlists), so it's not very true that a high GPA will get you into any school. I have experience as well (I'm not a working professional though), but I think research experience is where I am lacking most. So just don't get let down if you don't hear anything, sometimes it's factors out of our control! A high GPA won't necessarily guarantee an acceptance, just a heads up
  13. It's good to hear that there are others in the same boat! Thank you for the advice!
  14. I am assuming that York only does one round of acceptances, considering how few people they accept. But does anyone know for sure? Is there a possibility of a second round of admissions?
