  1. @movingtostats Why did you previously mention that UofToronto doesn't take international students? @SPIWizard Thank you so much for the info. I appreciate it. In my opinion if you are planning to go further in the academic field, that is for PhD, it would be best to do a 2-year MS with thesis. But if you plan on joining the industrial field after studies 1-year MS would be sufficient.
  2. Actually I took my GRE just because I had applied to that one US uni. Most of the Canadian universities do not require GRE. The one's I applied to never wanted me to submit the GRE scores at all. It is only required when you apply to the US. I don't know much about US universities tbh. More on the Canadian side. Going for a PhD directly doesn't work in Canada you need to have your Masters done before PhD but it is not the case in US if you stand a chance you can apply directly for PhD. I did get my profile evaluated here most of them suggested that I retake and improve m

  4. Just for my information but why doesn't UofToronto take international students? I am also pursuing my studies in Statistics so I am quite interested in your profile. This is my opinion as a Sri Lankan applicant and this is based on the opinions I've heard from Professors who have studied abroad. 1. It's good to aim for a higher ranked uni, even my goal was to join UBC or McGill but unfortunately I was rejected from both but I got into UofManitoba with a good funding offer. It's not that I am telling you not to apply go for it. It's your choice so you need to apply to see if yo
  5. @cropop Is it the same with acceptance?
  6. Have you submitted all the required documents? Did you check the portal to see if they had received and viewed your documents? If they did then you'll probably hear from them. I was expecting them to like update the status of the application as time goes by but it only stated "In Progress" and then around mid last week boom they mailed me that I was rejected!!! Other universities keep informing of the stage of review like "Submitted" "In Progress" "Under Review" "Under Department Review" and then comes the final decision but UBC never had aby of that!!! Even I started freaking out cu
  7. Thank goodness... @cropop Thank you.
  8. Does anyone know that if we receive a rejection letter from a university do they inform the referees as well of my rejection.
  9. Btw I've heard from UBC and I have got rejected apparently.
  10. @fauna876 Nothing at all........ Like literally when I open the portal it says Submitted and when I click on manage it says IN PROGRESS and it has been like that for ages. But I see that they've gone through my documents.
  11. Yeah true that even I looked up certain questions they've asked beforehand in skype interviews and most of them were like it's very general basic questions. Oh no no it isn't your fault. I had a matter of just 24 hrs to prepare for the interview so I couldn't do much especially since I am amidst sitting for my final of my undergrad. Thankuuu btw!!!
  12. @GeorgiaTechPhd Hi.. Btw I had my interview. Didn't ask anything personal or anything like why I chose this university and why I wanted to follow this particular program. I was interviewed by two professors and they mainly focused on my academic background like they literally asked me about each and every subject I learned what I learned in them, applications. Topics I studied under the subjects and whether I was familiar with certain areas. Away from that they also asked to explain what type of undergraduate research I am currently working on. That's it. And as to how it went...
