  1. I just found out that I got into the University of Waterloo for a Master's in Earth Science! I know it's a phenomenal school and it's doing ground-breaking research in my field (groundwater). I'm from Memphis TN, but am a Canadian citizen and spent my summers there growing up. However, I'm getting the nagging sensation that I'm always missing something. For example, my POI at Waterloo seemed put off by the fact that I didn't already know that a MSc degree there only requires 4 classes in addition to research, and little help was offered when I asked for it to navigate the funding sources. I would ask a question and the answer would seem to come from left field. Do any of y'all have advice for navigating the Canadian higher ed landscape as a clueless American? Are there any other big differences in curriculum, expectations, and structure of degrees that I'm missing?
