Don't loose hope. As catman14 quoted in another thread that they are finishing the interviews so may be response after that. Did you try to contact Iris regarding your interview outcome?

Wish you all the best luck

hey guys,

Iris told me today that the committee is finalizing decisions and everyone will have an answer by the 24th. I didn't get the e-mail that my interview went well and that my application is sent to the grad department.

 

Dwabtit, last year did you not hear anything besides the final decision? How are you liking the program? What sort of projects are you working on?

Thanks for answering! I thought my interview went well too so I'm a bit surprised I didn't get that e-mail after the interview.

The projects seem pretty interesting.. How many people are in the program? How large are the class sizes? What's the schedule like? How did you find the internship, or was it assigned?

Thanks Dwabtit and catman14 for ur input. I hope everyone get to know their application status by March 24th. I hv dropped an email to Iris about my application status but didn't get any reply till now.

Dwabtit can you tell us more about the program schedule. As i hv chosen health sciences as my speciality so which courses are good to take ? how to increase chances to get internship and when the interviews for internship starts? Also how to network in advance to get better internship

TIA

congrats that essentially means you are both in, the graduate department just formalizes the offers and makes sure all the documents you provided are legitimate (mostly just your transcript) be warned that even tough it says 10 days, it can take a while before you receive an official letter. Personally it took me about 3 weeks and some people had to wait a month or 1.5 months. The grad department is very very slow...

Hey Dwabtit, I remember your posts in last years forum really helped me out this year in terms of understanding how the applicatoon process works! How are you like the program so far? How are the tests/graders? I think you may have also replied to catman although I'm not able to see your response or some reason.
