      Hey! I'm curious how you know that application submission is not a factor. I didn't think it was either but someone is telling me that it could have been.

      Okay so I am literally freaked out now because I am not getting any updates from the universities!!! Not even whether my application is completed properly or what so ever. Application status just says submitted except for University of Manitoba that says that my application is under review in the department!!! Is this normal? Anyone out there can help me?
      P.S. I have applied mostly to Canadian universities
