  1. In my current office job, I tend to vary it depending on the person; I'll use 'best' when it's a short, quick email. Otherwise, I use 'best wishes' most of the time, occasionally "all the best" and with closer friends, I often use "cheers". I reserve "thanks" for when I'm actually thanking someone. It never occurred to me that someone might be offended or annoyed by the signature I chose, I guess I should think harder on this.... hmm.
  2. Mine was included in the attached email (the last few pages) that detailed my offer and funding... Basically it tells you that you can pay via online or telephone banking (Not credit, debit or cheque) and that all you need to do is add the University of Ottawa as a payee on your online banking and then use your student number and pay the $500. For me, it's essentially the same way that I paid tuition to my undergrad institution. I hope that makes sense :-)
  3. Hey Guys, So I still haven't heard from Ottawa law but I decided I want to do my Master's first so I emailed NPSIA to see if they could change me to the regular MA and they did! And offered me funding :-D So I have officially accepted their offer and will be declining GSPIA later today. Best of luck to everyone still waiting, I hope I get to see you in the fall!
  4. I am still waiting to hear back from U Ottawa for law school. Once I hear back from them, I can make an informed decision about whether I want to do the joint law-NPSIA program or go to GSPIA for my Masters. As of yet, I can't turn down NPSIA because I don't know if I'm accepted into law school. As a note: I'd already paid my confirmation to NPSIA before I heard from GSPIA. Anyway, I'll post here once I accept or decline NPSIA! Good luck!
  5. Hey! Thanks for your insight. I am sorry you haven't heard yet, I am hoping for you! That was the hard thing about posting this, I didn't want to be insensitive as I recognize how fortunate I am to be accepted into any grad program and I know there are still many people waiting (the waiting pain is really getting to me with U of O law as I applied in October!). Anyway, in answer to your questions: I've already paid my deposit to NPSIA. I would need to let GSPIA know by May 3rd in order to keep my funding so I do have a bit more time. I do think funding is a huge factor. I h
  6. I just posted this in GSPIA and I thought I would get advice from those of you that don't read that forum as well! Thanks in advance: Hi guys! I received my official offer today (GSPIA). I'm kind of freaking out because I don't know what to do. And yes, it may seem silly (first world problems anyone?) but I need some advice and who better to give it than an internet forum. ;-) (In truth, I just want as much input as possible as my boyfriend/family know nothing about grad school so you guys might have a better idea). So without further ado, HELP ME! So I'm stuck betwee
  7. Hi guys! I received my official offer today. I'm kind of freaking out because I don't know what to do. And yes, it may seem silly (first world problems anyone?) but I need some advice and who better to give it than an internet forum. ;-) (In truth, I just want as much input as possible as my boyfriend/family know nothing about grad school so you guys might have a better idea). So without further ado, HELP ME! So I'm stuck between a few different options (all of them in Ottawa). I turned down Osgoode law school and Queen's joint law-MPA program last week since I decided that I wa
  8. I didn't get a pdf yet. It only said this: Congratulations! The University of Ottawa is pleased to admit you in the program of Master of Arts in Public and International Affairs. In the next few days, you will receive your official offer of admission. Please read it carefully. You should also consult your InfoWeb account to obtain all the details regarding your offer of admission. If you experience any technical difficulties in accessing your account, please contact our Cybersos services by filling out the online help form. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to communicate wit
  9. Same with me! I got an email an hour ago. So weird as I wasn't even checking my infoweb on the weekend. Haha. I'm also accepted into the Master of Public Administration. I hope we hear about funding soon!
  10. I probably should have a little bit more patience as Tabbatha just sent the email to all MA-JD candidates. Thanks though!
  11. I wonder if it's because I'm in the stupid joint JD-MA? Ugh, I really wish U of O would get back to my about law school, if I'm not in that would be fine but I'd like to know where I stand. Considering the deadline for law was November 1st and I heard from the other law schools in January, I'm really beginning to get frustrated with U of O law. :-(
  12. I didn't get an email? Do you think she sent one to everyone?
  13. I forgot to post this on here but I declined my Queen's acceptance in the joint JD-MPA program. I had received $5000 for funding. Good luck to all!
  14. I had to wait longer at Carleton too but then eventually I was accepted. Don't lose hope yet, they might just be slow to update! And I haven't yet seen an update on my infoweb, only what the lady told me on the phone.
