    Waitlisted usually means you'll receive an offer if other applicants decline theirs. See if you can find someone who's been accepted to Brock and what their deadline to accept their offer is. You can probably assume they'll start sending more offers after that deadline.

    As other people have said, I believe that yes you can switch, but the deposit is probably non-refundable. Just so you know, I was accepted to SFU on March 14 and my letter says I have 14 days to reply. Assuming other people received their offers at around the same time, I'd assume the deadlines are around end of March for everyone, so they'll probably start sending out more offers in April from the people who declined! Best of luck!

    Congrats! I'm not too sure, I'm actually looking into the programs right now to try to make a decision. I've been living in the NWT for 6 months and I'm really interested in working in Health Promotion with Indigenous/Northern communities. As such, I thought UofA would be the best choice because it has more ties to the North (in fact UofA's School of Public Health is actually having a community meeting this Sunday in Yellowknife to discuss public health in the North). I see that UofA has many initiatives related to Indigenous peoples and the School of Public Health does have a focus in Indigenous communities, but I don't see any courses related to Indigenous health. From looking at the courses and their descriptions, it seems to me like the program has a strong focus on teaching students how to plan, implement and evaluate interventions. I love this because the program not only teaches you about public health / health promotion, but also teaches you how to put things into action. I didn't know much about SFU before I applied, but friends from BC highly recommended it to me, and from my research it looks like a very reputable university. There is a course on Indigenous Health that is part of the required courses, so that's a bonus for me. The website says there's only 40 students, so you're working closely with everyone, which is nice as well. As I mentioned above, UofA focuses strongly on strategies, planning, implementation. SFU's program seems to be a little broader. There are core courses on biostatistics, epidemiology, research methods, environmental/occupational health... What about you, what are your thoughts on SFU / other unis? Which unis are you choosing between?

    Just received my acceptance at SFU along with a $2,000 entrance scholarship. I was also accepted to UofA MPH in Health Promotion and USask. I was set on UofA, but want to learn more about SFU to make sure I'm making the right decision. Does anyone know anything about this webinar? The email only says "watch by March 22", but there's no link.

    The deadline to accept offers for both Alberta and Saskatchewan was March 1. Now that that's passed they'll probably start sending out more letters! Best of luck to everyone!

    Hey! I don't know the program at McGill so hopefully someone else can answer your question, but about the stats refresher: SFU recommends this free online course for people who have taken statistics but need a refresher - https://www.udacity.com/course/intro-to-statistics--st101 There are also some cool free courses on http://coursera.org , some even are statistics specifically for Public Health!

    My application to them was incomplete because I had already heard back from Saskatchewan, which I preferred over Lakehead, so I didn't bother completing the application!

    I was under the impression that you only needed to submit unofficial transcripts, and they'd request official copies if they decided to go through with your application. I'm fairly sure I called to ask them about this, but since I called many universities confirming this I can't remember 100% if SFU was one of them. Either way, a good update for everyone that SFU is looking at applications and might start sending out emails soon!

    SFU update: Received an email from them today saying my application will go forward for review and they need me to submit my official transcripts.

    Have you still not received an email from them? Check your junk mail. My portal said the same thing, and they sent me an email: "Our Admissions Committee has reviewed and considered your application to the Master of Public Health program at the School of Public Health. I am pleased to inform you that we are recommending to the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies that you be granted admission into our program for the August 2019 Intake. We were most pleased to receive your application to join our program and know that you will achieve a great deal while you are here. Please send an email to sph.admissions@usask.ca before March 1, 2019 to accept your seat in the program. Your application will then proceed to the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for official acceptance. We look forward to welcoming you to the School of Public Health." Basically this means that they liked your application and recommended you to program. You have to accept your seat by emailing them by March 1. After you accept, the CGPS will review your application again to make sure you have everything - for example, you might be missing an official copy of your transcript. This will be stated in your Admissions Letter. As long as you submit the required documentation by the deadline, you are admitted.
  14. I received some messages, so I created a group on Facebook if anyone is interested! https://www.facebook.com/groups/326041124580403/
