Any admit so far? What are you waiting on? 

Nope. Waterloo and Mcgill. 

I thought something's gonna happen today. But still nothing.

Saw an admit from McGill in the results section. Had my hopes high for a second but I got nothing. No admit so far.

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. 

 

Yeah, next year will be hard. I'm actually all set to go with Stony Brook. But somewhere in the back of my mind, I'm hoping for a miraculous admit from McGill.

Its possible but chances are slim for that. Don't know, I just feel next week is the final week.

Hope so.  Need to know my fate. 

Apparently I've been kicked off by Waterloo(ECE), down to SFU 😞

Has anyone heard back from Concordia on the Master of Applied Computer Science program?

My status online says my file is being assessed. They've received two of my reference letters, my third was sent over a week and a half ago but it still says "missing reference letter" under my to do list. Why do they take so long to process the reference letters??

This page here http://thegradcafe.com/survey/index.php?q=concordia&t=a&o=&pp=250 shows some people have already been accepted for Fall 2017, as early as a month ago!

I am nervous as hell because my Concordia GPA is only 3.2 and I only have a minor in comp sci. Hoping my industry experience is enough to offset this. If anyone has been accepted, can you please share your academic/professional profile?

Me and my friend applied for this program. My friend got rejected about 2 weeks ago . But no news for me . It took more than 1 month to update my reference letters .

Ah, so we are both competing for the same prize. In that case, may the best man (or woman) win!

Or, hopefully we both get accepted. lol

Not necessarily.  Are you both in for the same research areas? If not, you're not both competing.

The degree is based on coursework. No research areas bro!

Why do you think your friend was rejected? Grades?
