  1. I got rejected for OGS twice and won a Vanier, so don't worry too much about it. It's all stupid.
  2. Last year, I got my email at 1:46 pm EST from researchnet... Sending you folks good vibes
  3. @PsychBoy Tangibly, it's just given me more time to work on research. I only get one TA a year (as opposed to two pre Vanier) so it's freed up time. Additionally, I think in some ways it's added more pressure to be a "good academic", but much of that is probably concocted by me. Re: publications, I didn't have any peer reviewed journal pubs going into applying and I ranked middle of the pack of Vanier recipients. I remember what it was like for me this time of year, and it was unbearable. I was a wreck. Don't be like me. Take care of yourselves and remember that so much of this is subject
  4. I didn't think I was qualified for a number of reasons and when I asked my supervisor if I should apply, he said "it's extremely competitive and an accomplishment if you even make it out of the department to the university level, but nothing ventured nothing gained". So I applied. And got one in 2017. I'd say put the work in, because you never know what could happen.

    Last year I got the rejection email on February 15 and remember my application just disappearing from the system a few days before that.

    last year they let people know on February 9th. I imagine you'll hear next week
  7. Hey everyone, I just want to say that you should take care of yourselves. I remember how excruciating it was waiting. If I could do it again, I'd try to focus more on my work and less on an outcome I had no control over. I know it's easier said than done, but I regret how much energy I put in to thinking about the results. Just know that regardless of what happens, you're all impressive scholars. And remember that the process is subjective and depends heavily on who you have reviewing your application, so it's a bit of a gamble. Anyways, March 30 will come sooner than you think and try to make
  8. @psychboy I was nominated last year and received a SSHRC Vanier
  9. @PsychBoy Depending on what your school's procedures are, you might not know until March that you were forwarded. I have heard that some schools don't let applicants know they were forwarded while other schools do. My school did and requested I make some edits. You should just email your grad studies co-ordinator.
  10. @thehungryscholar like media interviews? nope. have you? @Lanie I remember my friend doing a media training webinar for the vanier...but I might be wrong...
  11. @thehungryscholar haven't heard anything yet. My friend won one last year and I think they start to do media training and outreach in the fall semester.
  12. I guess they don't want to make any promises in case things go awry. Makes sense. It actually makes me feel a little better. I'm just going to (try to) not think about it or repeatedly check reserachnet. Just will wait for that email.
  13. I heard back from the Program Officer This was their response: You will receive an email from ResearchNet when the results are released. So... I guess we just wait
  14. I couldn't take it, so I emailed the program officer. I'll let you know if anything comes of that
  15. I'm holding office hours right now for an exam viewing and the students probably think I'm some over caffeinated neurotic grad student haha. oh man.
