  1. Hi, I'm new to gradcafe. I'm currently a 4th year student completing a psychology degree at U of T. I am planning on applying to the SLP program at U of T this year however I'm a little nervous because of my GPA. I didn't do as well in a few courses during my second year, and these courses are really weighing down my subgpa to 3.74. I have alot of research experience (two RA positons and completing my thesis) related to speech and language pathology. I am also currently volunteering with an SLP. I'm hoping that my research and volunteer experience, as well as my statement of intent, will make up for my low SubGPA. However, I'm not sure if I really have a chance, considering that most people apply with a 3.85 or higher. Any tips or suggestions to make my application stand out? Do you think its worth applying with such a low subgpa? I would relaly appreciate any advice. Thanks
  2. Hello! I just wanted to ask for opinions on my graduate application. I will be applying this fall, and this will be my first round of graduate applications! Here is my app. info: - Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology (University of Ottawa) - GPA: 3.2/4.0 (last two years) (I am currently finishing up three online courses which I am maintaining a 90+ in, which will be added to my previous courses) - Two strong research letters of reference from the University of Ottawa - Honours thesis was on post-concussion syndrome, with regards to working memory dysfunction (Got an A-) - 4 work verification letters: 1. Walk home service provided by the University of Ottawa 2. l'Arche Ottawa (Support given to an individual with cognitive and physical disabilities) 3. Volunteer crisis responder position 4. Vision therapist experience (Written from supervising Optometrist) Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to improve my application if I do not get in this year! Thanks
  3. Who is applying to counselling psychology programs in Canada this fall? What can I do prepare my application? If anyone here has applied before, what are you tips? I am going into 4th year and will graduate in April 2020. My cumulative average is a 83.8% and my 3rd year average is a 68% (76% if you count the 3rd year courses I took in 2nd year summer) but I expect to bring it up by next year. I have close to 300 hours of paid/volunteer experience and will be doing a thesis. What can do to improve my application? I realize my stats are pretty weak so realistically I may not get an offer this intake period but what can I do to improve my chances in the future? I didn't see a thread on this already so I thought I would start one.
  4. Hello, As Public Health applications will be opening soon (depending on when you're applying to of course) and being the thread for last year was already released months before this, I jumped the gun and thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of Public Health applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (already have my eye on a supervisor though) SFU MPH U of Manitoba MScPH
  5. Hi! I'm hoping to get in to an MA/PhD in clinical psychology in Canada, and I could use a little advice from anyone who's applied before or has gotten in! A little bit of background, I have a BSc in neuroscience and English (yes weird combo) that I finished in 2015 in Canada. My grades weren't amazing, particularly in my second year, I did quite well in my final year but my GPA when I graduated was still only 3.0. I got into a MSc Health Psychology degree in the UK and got a 2:1 (which is about a B+ final grade). I've been working in research in the UK since my MSc, I've been a research assistant for about three years, I've worked on two major RCTs and am also a trial manager for an international european study. I have three co-authorships (two more being submitting in the fall) and two first authorships in progress (one being peer reviewed now, one manuscript nearly ready to submit) and working on a 3rd first-author paper but that won't be submitted before December as we're still in the middle of the analysis. I’ve presented one poster at a national conference in the UK and I have some teaching experience in the uni I work in now. My GREs have been fine, I think I can do better and will rewrite them before applying again, my subject GREs were 89th percentile so I will probably leave those as is. I know that my undergrad grades are the biggest thing bringing my application down, but there’s nothing really I can do about that anymore. I’m considering doing a postgrad certificate or diploma in psychology so that I can 1) Improve my overall grades and 2) get courses that I’m missing in psychology that might help my application (even though there was a lot of overlap in my neuroscience degree with the psych courses, I didn’t take social psychology for example). Does that sound like it might help, or will it not matter because it’s not a BSc? My other option is doing a PhD in the UK on the project I’m currently workining on, but it’s not a clinical degree. I could theoretically do a clinical MA afterwards, but MA psychologists can’t be licensed in certain areas in Canada, and it seems silly to do a PhD in the UK and then another MA/PhD in Canada afterwards. On the other hand, it also seems silly to decline the opportunity to do a PhD in a project I like with no security that I’ll get into a program in Canada later. I really want to do clinical psychology because I love the patient aspect and with my background in health psych I would really like to work in a hospital setting or with people living with chronic illnesses. And from the research I'm doing now, I’ve realized that I'll need to be a clinician to do the research I want to do in the future, not just be supervised by one. As you can probably tell from this post I am very conflicted and would appreciate any advice or considerations! Thanks!
  6. I'm curious about some Canadian universities for their statistics programs, but I've heard numerous times that the way master's programs work in Canada is much different than the ones in the US. A few questions I had was: 1. Generally, are Canadian programs usually funded and geared towards research careers? I'm personally not looking for a research career. 2. As an American, do I have to apply with a TOEFL? 3. Am I ineligible for any kind of Canadian federal/provincial funding or aid as an American? Can I take out loans in the US and use them toward Canadian programs? 4. Most statistics programs in the US consist of international students. Is it similar in Canada? And is it much harder to get in as an American (or international) student to master's program in Canada? Any other thoughts or comments are welcome. Thanks in advance for all the advice!!!
  7. Hi Everyone, I created this thread for all of us applying to Canadian Audiology programs. This is a nice way for all of us to support each other throughout this application process! Good luck everyone!
  8. Decided to start a thread for those of us applying to Canadian international affairs programs this fall/winter. Post stats, advice, or anything related to this topic!
  9. Hello! International student here who is faced with the choice between Edmonton and London. Can any of my Canadian resident friends out there throw some light on the following aspects in an Edmonton vs London context? I will be a PhD student living off limited stipend. 1. Liveability - weather, affordability of housing options for a small family, access to utilitarian services etc 2. Early schooling - how good are the schools 3. Childcare - affordability and quality Thank you very much!
  10. Hi all,I am hoping to apply for an MPH program for Fall 2020, and would like some advice on pros and cons of different Canadian schools/programs. I am hoping to:-Do a project (not thesis) based program-Do an in-person (not online) degree-Focus in Global Health, with a practicum abroadGiven this, it seems that UofA and SFU MPH Global Health programs would be the best fit for me.I am wondering if anyone has insight into pros and cons of these programs, or insight into any other programs that might suit my interests?Thanks!

  12. I applied to a number of MASC Electrical Engineering Graduate programs in Canada for the September Intakes and have been unfortunately rejected by all of them. I am applying to a few schools now for the MENG program for the January 2020 Intake and am considering re-applying to a couple of the schools that rejected me for this program as well. Would it make sense to re-apply to these schools for the MENG program or would it be a waste of time and money? I honestly thought my application was strong enough to warrant an acceptance into the MASC program but that was not the case. Would the MENG program be 'easier' to get into by any means? Thanks in advance for any advice that you can give me.
  13. Hello fellow MSW colleagues, I have created this forum as a way for MSW students and graduates to share their placement experiences with one another. I would appreciate it if people can share their experiences at school boards, hospitals, counselling and advocacy agencies. More specifically, if anyone did their placement with Peel Children's Centre, Peel District School Board, or the Dufferin Peel Catholic School Board, I would be very interested in hearing how your experience was. Thank you!
  14. Now that the application deadlines are over, thought I'd start a thread for people who are hoping to join UWaterloo in Fall 2019. I have applied for PhD in Environmental Engineering. Please post the degree and the area of study you have applied to. We can use this thread to discuss the status of the applications and share our anxieties. Thank you.
  15. Is Political science Masters program in UBC strong??
  16. Hi all, I'm new to this and only just learned about gradcafe today! I'm a 2nd year MA student currently working on my thesis and have applied for a PhD in English starting fall 2019 at 4 Canadian universities. I've already heard back from 1 of the universities (University of Ottawa) and am anxiously awaiting others (University of Toronto, Dalhousie, and Memorial University). I found an American thread and thought I would create one for people waiting to hear back from Canadian schools!
  17. Hello Friends, As this academic year is coming to a close, and MPH applications will be opening in just 6ish (months depending on where you're applying to of course!), I thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of MPH applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (still need to start looking for a supervisor, how soon is too soon?) SFU MPH
  18. Starting this thread since I haven't seen one like it yet. Has anyone heard back from University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health PhD Epidemiology?
  19. I applied for the Masters of arts in business economics (MABE) program in Wilfrid Laurier University November. I was informed that admission decisions are made in mid February but i am yet to hear from Laurier. I would like to know if anyone has heard from Laurier with respect to MABE admission for the fall 2019.
  20. Hello everyone, So for now I'v got offer letters from McGill CS and Columbia EE, and still waiting for U of T and UIUC. Applied for both ECE and CS at the latter two. All are MSc programs or something similar. I'm an international student and my goal is to work in the industry (machine learning R&D that kind of stuff) and stay permanently in North America. Considering the odds of getting permanent residency I would say Canada is more ideal for staying after graduation. I could really use some advice on following questions: I heard Toronto has more job opportunities than Montreal, is that true? And if it is, by what margin? How would Canadian companies rate graduates from US schools? i.e. how competitive are Columbia and UIUC compared to U of T and McGill, in Canada? Many thanks!
  21. Hey guys, So I applied to the University of British Columbia (UBC), McGill University, University of Toronto, and York University (all in Canada) for my PhD in Political Science. Has anyone else applied and heard back from them??
  22. When do Canadian Universities usually let students know about the results for thesis based courses. No contact from POI, no update, I am starting to get a little jittery now
  23. Hey guys, So I applied to the University of British Columbia (UBC), McGill University, University of Toronto, and York University (all in Canada) for my PhD in Political Science. Has anyone else applied and heard back from them?? I'm really anxious to hear back!
  24. The Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP) scholarships are facilitated through institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian and Latin American or Caribbean institutions. These agreements are created between colleges, technical or vocational institutions and universities. I am JuanD (Colombia) and I successfully obtained an ELAP scholarship on 2014. Now I would like to help all the interest one in order to get this great grant in Canada. Please don't hesitate in contacting me. http://www.urosario.edu.co/Home/Principal/noticias/Internacionalizacion/Beca-ELAP/ https://www.semana.com/contenidos-editoriales/especiales-regionales-canada/articulo/universidades-canadienses-ejemplo-de-calidad-academica/530518 Best,
