  1. Hi all, I thought I'd start a thread specifically for those of us applying to Munk and other Canadian international affairs programs for fall 2017. Topic name begins with Munk simply because that's my first choice lol Applications haven't opened yet but I figured, why not Here's last cycle's thread:
  2. I suppose we all finished submitting our applications and wait for some news. Let's talk about our issues and developments of applications. I'm waiting for 2 universities (UVic and USask) and applied for MPA.
  3. Hi Guys! I don't know if this is the right place to put this thread in, but I couldn't find any similar thread anywhere. So here it goes! All the Masters/PhD in Computer Science people who applied in Canadian universities converge here! Share your heart out, how you're dealing with the stress of waiting it out (Canadian universities are super late in sending decisions). Last I heard, SFU and UWaterloo extended their deadlines to February 15 and February 28! Man this is gonna take even more time!!!
  4. I noticed that the previous thread was blocked, and even though it's rather late, I figured it was still worthwhile to start a new one! Where is everyone at with their admission statuses??
  5. I figured I would start this thread off for Canadian clinical psychology applicants for Fall 2017. There was a good thread going last year that I think helped a lot of people out. Might as well get it started before the applications are due! Good luck to everyone this year!
  6. Hey everyone just thought I would start up a thread for any audiology hopefuls applying for the 2017 year! I am applying to UBC and Western this year. I have heard that Western is really difficult to get into. Does anyone know if UBC is any easier?
  7. Hello everyone! I`m applying to Vanier CGS 2016-2017. Is there any other applicants here? If we could count with the help (some tips, guidelines, etc) of those who are already accepted that would be great. Thanks!
  8. Haven't seen a thread for the 2017 cycle so I thought I'd initiate one here. Anyone in the process of applying? I have just submitted my application to UBC and am currently working on ones for U of T, McGill, York, Calgary, Alberta and possibly Queens/Victoria. Here are my stats: Undergrad GPA: 3.6/4.33 (3.88 in last 2 years) MA (International Studies- Course Based): 3.55/4.33 MA (Political Science): 4.0/4.0 Scholarships: 5 in second MA (including SSHRC); 2 in first MA and and 3 in BA Other Awards: Rhodes Finalist, Dean's Honor Call, Best Poster Presentation Award Publications: Three published, one of them is single author; 3 submitted Conferences: Presented at two academic conferences Research: Worked as an RA in 2 semesters Enthusiastic reference letters I would appreciate any comments/evaluations? UBC is my first choice but the profs that work in my area aren't taking on PhD students so I'm not sure about what my chances are. Of course would be happy to have an offer from Toronto and McGill as well. Where is everyone else applying to?
  9. I haven't accepted yet, but it's looking more and more likely that I'll be heading to McGill in the fall! Anyone else here planning to go?
  10. This might sound like a really stupid question, but I don't know when the deadline to accept my UWO offer is. There is nothing about this on the departmental website OR on the graduate admissions website as far as I can tell. I emailed the grad admissions office, who told me to contact my department about the deadlines. The department contact person in turn told me that I can find all the information in the admission letter. But the deadline is not there! I checked the letter three times now: all it says in terms of dates is I need to complete any outstanding requirements (i.e. send official transcripts) a month before commencing my studies and get a study permit. I am a little afraid I'll annoy the program coordinator if I email them again. I also don't want to just poke around on the portal because the system UWO uses is not the most user-friendly, what if I accidentally reply to my offer before I am ready? So what do I do now? Wait a while before asking again? The programs I have not heard from yet release the decisions very late, in early May, so I really need to know if I can wait this long before deciding. Western folk out there, when was/is your deadline to accept? Is it universal across the university? I am not sure: is April 15th a thing in Canada? Does it matter if your offer is funded/unfunded?
  11. Has anyone applied for the Master of Education program at Thompson Rivers University for counselling?
  12. Hey everyone! I applied to Ryerson, McGill and Carleton for the Masters in Architecture! I haven't heard back from any so I'm pretty nervous! Has anyone any idea when I should hear from them? Also has anyone heard back from them? Feel free to reply!
  13. Hello! Somehow, this year, no one seems to have started a Canadian Thread for applicants for Clinical and Counselling Psychology. I figured, I would start! Applied to: University of Manitoba (Clinical), Queen's (Clinical), McGill (Counselling), New Brunswick (Clinical) and Wisc-Madison (Masters/PhD - Counseling) No, news yet except for Wisc-Madison PhD - rejected, but one of my referees didn't put in my reference in time (a week after the deadline) Let's start talking because I think we all need an outlet and to find out from each other what is happening in the world of invites, acceptances and rejections. (PS, if someone does know about another link - 'cause I cannot find my fellow applicant peers)
  14. Hey everyone! I thought I'd start a thread for those applying to urban / regional / community planning masters programs for Fall 2017. We can share thoughts on programs, application stats, acceptance/rejection dates, funding, etc. I don't know too much about all the planning programs, but right now I'm thinking I'll apply to the programs at Queen's (SURP), UofT (MScPl), Waterloo (MA/MES), and Ryerson (MPl). Let me know your thoughts!
  15. Hi everyone! I have applied to a few programs in Canada for next year. I was just wondering if anyone has heard from Mount St Vincent (I was waitlisted there after an interview, but they only accept 8 people so I don't know what my chances are...), or University of Ottawa for Counseling? Thanks in advance!
  16. Hi all, I've found myself in a position for which I am very grateful, but which has also made me super super anxious. I've been accepted to two Master's programs, one in my home country at my undergrad institution (in Canada) and one at a top-tier school in the UK. My undergrad institution isn't super well-renowned, but the program is generally viewed as one of the best in the field in the country. Both schools have offered me funding, along the lines of this: School A (Canada) - $30K for one year; tuition is $11K and cost of living relatively low School B (UK) - $14K for one year; tuition is $30K and cost of living very high In Canada and the US, it's pretty common (from what I gather) to straight up ask for more money for a grad program. I have no idea if this is acceptable or ever done in the UK, and would really, really appreciate any insight from anyone who has done this before (successfully or otherwise) or really anything along these lines. TLDR: Can I negotiate my grad school funding offer from a top-tier UK university? Thanks all!!!
  17. Has anyone applied for MSc in Statistics/Biostatistics at UBC?? Checked with them two weeks ago, the secretary said they were still in the process of reviewing application ....
  18. Thought I might get this thread started for those prepping to apply in the fall.
  19. Hey everyone! I was hoping to see if we could get together a list of statistics for admissions for Canadian MPH programs! I found UofT's: Applications: Domestic - 792, International - 102 Offers: Domestic - 221, International - 7 Registration: Domestic - 103, International - 4 Link to document: https://issuu.com/dlsph/docs/2015-16_annual_report_final_spreads?e=25479276/36812031 DLSPH's 2015-2016 Annual Report NOTE: If you found the stats online, provide a link for it please If it's through word of mouth, alumni, etc, feel free to indicate
  20. Let's share our experience for the Fall 2017 cycle!
  21. Just wondering if anyone has been offered admission to msw programs in canada for advanced standing and two year applicants!
  22. Hi I submitted my Msc application at 30 Jan. This program will shtart at May. But the admission office said My transcript was not the final one since the last year's grades and courses were missing. My last undergraduate study was a internship program in a lab so there are no course and just one grades for the internship program. How to explain this situation for the office. I am truly hope to Join in this program and I have get the agreement from the professor so I need to be accept by this program. Please help me. Thank you so much.
  23. I'm a recent psychology undergrad student living in Manitoba applying for clinical psych programs this year, Dec. 2017 and was only considering applying to Canadian universities for grad school, but I'm now considering options in America as well. I was avoiding American schools because of higher tuition rates, being type 1 diabetic (Canada has great health care), having a partner who can't travel to the states, and now the recent political circumstances of the U.S. Have any other Canadian students moved to America for grad school and had difficulty (or ease) with the transition?
  24. I posted this in the psychology board but I'll try my luck here as well. I'm a recent psychology undergrad student who will be applying for clinical psych this year, and until recently I was only considering applying to Canadian universities. Now I'm also considering American universities as well, but I'm skeptical about what the transition would be like if I was accepted anywhere. I avoided American schools because I'm diabetic and really appreciate Canada's health care system, tuition rates in America are much higher than Canada, and I have a partner who can't travel to the U.S. I'm wondering if other Canadian students have had similar experiences or skepticisms and could tell me more about your experience going from Canada to the U.S. to study.
  25. Hey! Can someone who's attending or who recently attended The University of Western Ontario for Clinical Psychology PM me please.
