  1. If anyone accepted GSPIA or is considering accepting their offer....feel free to message me. I just finished up my first year in the program.
  2. I have no doubt it's a good program, but I don't see the point in paying 50k. If you are interested in international affairs Ottawa is definitely the place to be due to the endless events and opportunities here - government and non government included.
  3. In all honesty Munk was my first choice but looking back I realize that I made the right choice going to GSPIA instead. Not only were the fees extremely high going to Munk, I couldn't really find solid information on the job prospects upon graduating, and whether alumni from the Munk program managed to get solid jobs out of it. But it was mostly the cost of the program, and I didn't want to go 50,000+ in debt for a 2 years masters program. With GSPIA, there's more international opportunities for a cheaper cost. We get matched with a senior fellow at the beginning of the year which is usually s
  4. Hey guys, I'm currently a grad student in the GSPIA program at u Ottawa. I applied to NPSIA (accepted) and Munk (waitlisted) last year and can provide application advice or insights into grad school if you like. You can PM me
  5. I think course selection was around 2 weeks ago. I wouldn't worry because I believe we have until August to choose them anyway
  6. We got an email In mid June about selecting courses and setting up your UOttawa email. Check your junk folder .
  7. Yeah, I would say that's a strong sign you got in! Nothing on my acorn dashboard ... uh oh 😕
  8. Aside from NPSIA I also got into GSPIA, but I'm leaning towards GSPIA more. Now waiting on Munk and SIDGS...
  9. Yeah, it's super frustrating. Like I said before, I still hope that we start to hear back sooner rather than later, but it's something beyond anybody's control other than the admissions team. I also feel like due to the new video component, the application/decision process this year is a lot more stringent and highly selective than before.
  10. Yeah, its a really inconvenient time to start rolling out offers of admission. If I remember correctly from the open house Munk receives 500+ applications a year. Now combine that with the fact that they added a video component. Maybe the video component has slowed down the process? I'm trying not to speculate too much otherwise it will drive me nuts. All we can do is keep waiting.
  11. I'm still hoping that they give out offers earlier than late March/early April. Part of me thinks maybe they'll feel slight pressure to release acceptances earlier then what they said in the emails because they know a lot of students have to respond to other schools as soon as possible. Or maybe I'm being too optimistic lol.
  12. I am in a similar position and I have been thinking of just accepting my offer because it was my second choice anyway. I have until the 19th to accept and it would be risky to hold off/reject it when there's no guarantee I would get into Munk. I hope they let us know before the end of the month, but if I don't hear anything from Munk by next week I am going to accept my offer to GSPIA. And if I get into Munk whenever they release acceptances I guess rescind GSPIA. I don't think there's any legal or financial consequences
  13. They also added the video component for the first time this year so it's probably taking a lot longer to review applications.
  14. Yeah I emailed them and they said the same thing. I guess there's a couple more weeks of waiting left. A bit curious of how many people applied this year because they are sending out offers later than usual.
  15. Ah I just want the wait for Munk to be over with, I have to respond to GSPIA by the 19th. Edit: I emailed Munk and they said offers are going out late March or early April.
