  1. I found out last Thursday from my institution that I was waitlisted but I got my letter today. I scored a 12.4 on Committee 3. There's not much information to go on but I think that's a bit low to get off the waitlist. I did get OGS again this year though so at least there's that. Congratulations to everyone who got it!
  2. I'm at Western and just got an email that I was waitlisted. No email login yet though which would be nice to know what position I'm in. More waiting for me I guess.
  3. Yeah I'm a quota applicant in Ontario and me and the other person nominated in my department haven't received any emails yet. Edit: last name P, in case that matters.
  4. My school let everyone know. They definitely let successful people know first but us less fortunate were soon after.
  5. If you're not a direct applicant there's also a good chance your school will let you know your results before you receive direct communication from SSHRC. There's an online portal that the schools have access to where SSHRC releases the results. Depending on your school they might notify you once they know, I know my school does from last year.
  6. I just heard from my department's grad chair that SSHRC doctoral results are going to be released this week. Last year I was mailed a letter, but also had my school email me when they were told the results. I assume this year with everything being electronic that everyone will receive word from their school as soon as they're released hopefully.
  7. This isn’t true. You can get OGS up to 4 times, but not past your 4th year. You just need to apply for it every year.
  8. I have heard of 5 people just in my program being waitlisted (and there’s 6 graduate programs in my department). That just seems like a weirdly high amount of waitlists to me...
  9. Hi everyone! I just found out I was awarded OGS (yay!) but my friends who all had it last year were all waitlisted. I know that the government delayed confirming how many awards each school had and was just wondering if anyone heard about the number of awards being cut back this year?
  10. Hey! I don't know if there's any restrictions against this or something, but it would be really helpful to see people's programs of study who were successful. I was thinking maybe we could set up something Google Drive or Dropbox or something like that if anyone was willing to share? I've seen some older ones but it would be great to see some more recent ones. Also I got my score today. 10.6! So close for my first try! Makes me feel less terrible about myself though to know that I was pretty close. Just got to improve by 1 or 2 points next year! (Or better yet 5 and get CGS 😛)
  11. Super great idea except the anxiety around waiting led to me pushing off some work I need to do for tomorrow ☹️
  12. Yeah OGS is definitely still the hope. Unless the amount of OGS scholarships allocated to my department changed I feel like I have a very good shot, a much better shot than SSHRC at least 🙃.
  13. I feel this so hard. When I first was going to apply I wasn’t even sure I would get out of the school, but then people I worked with in the department were telling me they thought I would get it and it definitely got my hopes up. Oh well. Always next time. And you still have hope for this time!
  14. Same here. Time to start preparing for next year I guess!
