  1. I'll try emailing the profs, but as qkhitai said, I think it's time to cover my losses with McMaster and move forward with UoA. Last conversation I had with a professor was in early April and he seemed really interested (can't take names), but it's all been silent ever since.

  4. This is my first post here, so please go easy on me with the forum rules I applied to a lot of Computer science and engineering related programs in Canada, out of which UoAlberta's MSc in computing science with specialisation in Multimedia and McMaster's MEng in software engineering and virtual systems design programs were my first choices ( I'm interested in game development, graphics and HCI, so the programs seemed like a good fit ).
