Hey Everyone, a little late to the party...I applied in January and was notified last month that I am on the waitlist. Admissions asked for my final transcript which I hope is a good sign! Hoping to hear back soon about the outcome of my application. UofT is my first choice! I feel like this program was made for me!

Hi everyone,

For those who have been accepted, have you guys received both email and snail mail? I recently got accepted, and have only received an email acceptance.

Cheers

I received an email on the 4th of May and still no physical mail. Not much other information either from the school.

Hi Guys,

Need a little help here. I also applied to UofT in February 1st, 2017 and still haven't received a decision yet. In my UofT account, it says "Decision made" and nothing else.? Will I receive the decision via post or email? Should I write to them asking the status of my application?Or should I just wait?

Try emailing them to check and make sure so you know the status of your application.

Thanks for the help. I did a bit of research at my end , and I think I am gonna go with UofT . I really suck at learning a new language and it'd suck to not get a job after masters cause of the language criteria haha so yeah.

And for the stats - I had a 4.0 GPA in my undergrad and close to 1 year experience as a Consultant. But I have some friends who got acceptance with a much lower gpa and no experience, cause their SOP was pretty good (atleast that's what they say). One of my friends got a reject from UofT last year , but got admitted to UT,Austin. So you never really know what is it that they consider.

Have you tried reaching out to the admissions counselor (Andrea). She is quite helpful and almost always replies on the same day. Let me know if you need her email address.

Hello, wow your GPA is really impressive. I had half year consultant internship experience in US. What is your concentration?

 

Anyone know which school is better, Mcgill MI and UofT MI? I received both offers.

I submitted my application in Feb. Currently there are very few UX programs in the world, most of them are in the US. Over the past 2 years, I prepared really hard to apply to the schools in the US but then Trump happened. Canada has only 3 grad programs in UX UToronto has one, UniCarleton has two programs.

Hi, did you get accepted in UofT. I'm very interested in UXD too. I did my undergrad in US, then Trump came. I received some offers from US too but still hesitate should I stay in US or Canada. Based on your research, do you think UofT offers great HCI/UXD studies? Not sure UofT will invite Google or other Big 4 for career fair.

Hi, Yes I did! I am still deciding between ISD and KMIM as of now. 

I've done a fair amount of research regarding Mcgill's MI course vs UofT's before finally picking one, and I would definitely suggest you to choose UofT.
