  1. Any international students got into any sort of MPH programsin Canada this year?
  2. Any international students got into any sort of MPH programsin Canada this year? Plz reply !
  3. Also received rejection from DLSPH U of T MPH today.
  4. Any international applicants got into any Canadian Mph programs tyear ? Will appreciate your response. I am an international candidate still waiting to hear from U of T Epi and Uni of Waterloo MPH program though already accepted my LSHTM offer.
  5. How many international applicants ( non Americans and non Canadians) got into Mph programs at Canadian universities this year...if any yet?
  6. I also second this info. 40 seats
  7. International students need to apply for visas too. They (universities) should consider that getting visas is a long and tedious process taking on average 3 to 4 months ...so they should inform about their decisions asap. When I applied to US universities last yr through Sophas, i got all my decisions by mid march. Still waiting for UofT and Waterloo and its May soon..
  8. LSHTM has a rolling admission policy and even though their acceptance rates are higher still its competitive to get an offer. Applying close to the deadline is not a wise idea as they might enrol you for the next (2018) session instead due to seats been all filled (on a rolling policy) Classes begin in late Sep.
  9. They did the same thing with me. Its been 2 weeks I saw my status change to Admission Denied on their portal. But still no emails
  10. Heres the link https://www.usnews.com/education/best-global-universities/social-sciences-public-health
  11. There is no application fees for LSHTM
  12. Kings College UCL University of leeds Manchester Univ Brunel University (london) And of course LSHTM
  13. I already hv rejections from uofAlberta, Mcmaster, Mcgill and SFU. Waiting for Uof toronto n waterloo . Have an offer from LSHTM though and deferrals from USF, UAB, UThealth houston, UNI OF florida (as i got my student visa refused last yr so now cant go to usa). If that didnt dampen my hopes i think u should also dont gv up yet.
  14. Good luck to all waiting for Waterloo's decision. I m also in the same boat. I would like to ask if they (canadian universities)have a quota system to accept a certain number of international students every year. Does being a Canadian has an extra edge over international students even if their experiences are more or less the same?
  15. As you mentioned this was your second year applying to mph at uofAlberta. Last time when you were unsuccesful , did you ask them what were the shortcomings in your application. I am asking cos i been refused by a few Canadian universities already but they are not specifically telling me the reason (shortcomings) for rejecting my application.
