  2. Yes absolutely! I'm lifting this info word-for-word directly from the letter. "A sampling of recent academic placements (within the past 10 years) is as follows: Tenure Track Positions: University of Alberta, Arizona State University, University of British Columba, Brock University, University of California-Santa Cruz, Cardiff University, University of Cincinnati, Cornell University, Dalhousie University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, McGill University, University of Moncton, University of Montreal, University of Northern Illionois, Ohio University, University of Oklahoma, University
  3. Yes, I got my funding package email late last night (10pm EST). Also within the funding package it has details about their placement record for the last 10 years in TT and post-doctoral fellowships. On a separate note, does anyone know anything about the Ontario Trillium Scholarship for International Doctoral Students? UofT has nominated me for it, but I wouldn't find out if I got it until early April, which is after the deadline for me to give them an attendance decision. I've found that the total funding package for the Trillium scholarship is $40k for 4-years, but no breakdown of the s
  4. Yes, I will definitely be asking Toronto for a list and will share any info here. It's good to know for prospective students, regardless of the market you are trying to enter.
  5. I agree, that fact doesn't seem very promising. Further, I can't even find a Canadian placement list for Toronto, meanwhile other similar institutions in Canada do have a published placement list.
  6. I disagree. McGill has some fairly decent placements in the US, though obviously their focus is the Canadian market and not the American one because that's where the bulk of their students are from. Toronto also specifically advertises that their students successfully place both into the Canadian and American markets. I'd just like to see for myself via a tangible list, which I have yet to find.
  7. Would you happen to know of a place where I can find Toronto's placement record? I've been scouring the website, but to no avail! I'd like to know how their students place, particularly in the American TT arena.
  8. Hey everyone - long time lurker here. Claiming the U Toronto PhD acceptance on the admissions results!
  9. I'm in the same boat with a number of schools.... plus, Northwestern is still teasing me with silence.
  10. Maybe that's why the results page has been static for the whole day... I thought it was unusually quiet.
  11. Not necessarily. As a current student I do have some insider info. The preliminary admit list is around 20 (more or less, I can't say) and only a number of those slots will receive funding. It is quite possible that they are only notifying those admits that were on the initial funding list, and will release the rest at a later date. I find it hard to believe with so many on the admit list that only 2 of us posted, and both of us happened to receive the funding package (assuming it is all released on the same day).
  12. I got an email from the Assistant DGS with details
