    Funding at York University, Toronto

    Thanks a lot for this information. I have been following the Cupe 3903 strike and proceedings. I guess that may have contributed to the delay in admission decisions this year. I will likely pm you for more info, once my status is decided at York. Thanks once again.

    I also heard about the funding for philosophy, which led to applying to York. I hope it goes well. Cheers.

    Thanks. Haven't heard from York. I applied for an MA in philosophy. I also on the waitlist for Simon Fraser. Congrats on your acceptance to McMaster. We keep fingers crossed. Cheers!

    2018 Acceptance/Rejection Thread

    Waitlisted at SFU on Mar 20th. Grad Chair said I'll be hearing from them soon, before the April 15 deadline.

    I solicited a mail from the department at SFU. Told by the Graduate Chair on Mar. 20th that I was on the waitlist and would be hearing from them once my name comes up from the waitlist. The email though had a positive tone about it. I'm keeping fingers crossed.

    I got waitlisted at Simon Fraser yesterday. Please, if anyone isn't going ahead with SFU as a first choice, kindly help us move up the waitlist. I had to solicit them before they informed me of my being on their waitlist.

    Ok...good. I have a strong GPA. Have work experience of a year plus, as an RA and have publications and a book chapter. Still on tenterhooks though. I wish us all success. Fingers crossed.

    I am from Nigeria. Did you apply for an MA in philosophy?

    Hi everyone. I'm an international student also. Threw my applications for MA in philosophy to York and SFU. The wait has been nerve-racking.

    2018 Acceptance/Rejection Thread

    Hello everyone, Anyone heard from Simon Fraser or York Uni Canada yet??? PM me please.
  12. Well, last year, I saw that a thread was put up on this topic. It enabled followers to keep abreast of acceptances, rejections and waitlists from Canadian MA programs. As for me, I applied to both York Uni and SFU for 2018 fall. Still waiting on a positive response with fingers crossed. What of you?

    2018 Philosophy Applicants, Assemble!

    Thank you for that green light. The waiting game can be so tough. Thanks. Good luck to you too.

    2018 Philosophy Applicants, Assemble!

    Who's applying to Simon Fraser Uni and York Uni, Canada for their MA philosophy? I am an international student with a BA Hons first class in philosophy. I have spent 2 years working as a research assistant in a top business school here in Africa. I have four article publications and an upcoming book chapter. I tried writing a good statement of interest and submitted an excerpt from my Bachelors project for my written sample. I have good recommenders, I think, all PhDs. In spite of these, I am still very much apprehensive. The wait is a quiet purgatory of its own. Do I stand a chance? Reading through the thread, I see that the process is quite competitive. I need some reassurance, goodness me.
