  1. Yes, I asked about this because usually they would offer second and sometimes third. And they said that they calculated a "rate" of rejection in their offers. Which still doesn't make sense, what if more or less people decline the grant? I got to say that the process feels less transparent through the years...
  2. Don't be too hard on yourself ! 3.8/4 is GOOD. I also had shitty grades in one of my undergrad (thanks to multiple members of my family passing away during my finals in one semester), but now that you are a grad, they are looking at much more. Do you have publications (including professional - The Conversation and University Affairs are a good place to start), conferences (now most are online and cheap, you could present research, theoretical framework, even a class research project !), do you do TAs or RAs, have you helped your community (community services), etc. I still remember how sad my
  3. Hey guys! This year, I was ranked 4th and there were only 3 grants available. I have the Titanic song in my head (neeeaaaaar faaaaaar) lol.

That also goes for CRSH : anybody heard if waitlists are still happening?
  5. Hey guys ! A big and honest congrats to everybody who got funded, it IS deserved and I hope you will celebrate :). I got a 14.46/20, committee 3, and didn't get funded. If you are curious : I have 3 published scientific papers and 6 published professional papers, 15+ scientific and professional conferences, 4 TAs and RAs, 7 doctoral grants, I was a semi-finalist for the Trudeau foundation scholarship, I have 7 years of professional experience in my field and have a GPA of 9.4/10. My research also falls under one of the SSHRC priorities. If you ask me : I don't understand ho
