  1. Thank you! I'm speechless! It was the SSHRC Doctoral fellowship, I can't hold the CGS because I'm abroad
  2. Accepted with a score of 17.37 Does anyone know where to go for the quickest / easiest information re: next steps and banking??? Hopeful for you all to hear soon as well!
  3. Wasn't trying to start a debate lol. Considering last year was the first and only time they've distributed results electronically, and many mentioned that the result of that was somewhat messy, I was merely trying to suggest that it's possible that they've had time to streamline the process of releasing the results, and that they might do so a few days sooner in April, as their Twitter page was somewhat vague about it. Like you said, in other years the letters were dated in April even if it took longer for some to receive them physically than others, so overall we are probably comparing very m
  4. Is it naively hopeful that a year into covid and the new extranet system that they'd have their stuff together enough to be a little more timely? You're probably right that we won't be seeing anything come in until the end of this week / early next week, but you never know!
  5. This is so painful lol. Just wanted to commiserate
  6. Hello! I know some people who pursued McGill's MA English program. I wouldn't overthink your GPA too much, especially if it was above a 3.5 in your last two years, and you attended a well-renowned institution such as U of T (I'm sure they'll take grading scale / difficulty of the program you attended into consideration). If you'd like to clarify the reasoning for this grade discrepancy you may be able to do so in your SOP, but I'm not sure if it is necessary. Also, McGill's English MA has 3 streams - literature, drama, and cultural studies (I believe), so if you are precise about what you
  7. So I am probably over-stressing this, but I recently noticed a typo in an email that I sent to the graduate coordinator of a PhD program I am highly interested in. I've already submitted my application, which I overall feel pretty good about. However, in the process of emailing the graduate coordinator about the graduate school's receipt of my official transcripts, I noticed a glaring typo in my most recent email reply. This typo isn't in my SOP or application package itself, but I have heard that admissions committees track all correspondence with the university. Will my email / ty
  8. So, I'm trying to decide if I should re-apply to a graduate program I believe could be a great fit for my research, but I have some concerns. When I last applied a couple years ago, I was left in limbo after the department had made its initial round of offers (I believe I was on an unofficial waitlist, having not been rejected either). In a moment of green overkill overzealousness, I reached out to the graduate program coordinator, and 2 professors with whom I wanted to work. I shared an additional writing sample - and I never heard back / was rejected shortly afterwards (unsurprisin
  9. Hello! I'm new to this forum, and figured I'd reach out to see if anyone on here might be able to share program recommendations pertaining to my research interests and existing background. For my Master's thesis, I examined questions related to television, cultural studies, etc. The degree I pursued was technically housed in an English department, though I pursued the 'cultural studies' stream. For my undergraduate, I completed a combined BA in English & Communication Studies. Essentially, in addition to media-based programs, I'm wondering if anyone can recommend American and /
  10. Hello! I'm new to this forum, and figured I'd reach out to see if anyone on here has program recommendations pertaining to my research interests and existing background. For my Master's thesis, I examined questions related to television, narrative mode, masculinity, capitalism, cultural studies, etc. The degree I pursued was technically housed in an English department, though I pursued the 'cultural studies' stream. For my undergraduate, I completed a combined BA in English & Communication Studies. I've heard that TV studies is not the most prominent area of research considered
