Hey everyone, I'm thinking of applying for my PhD in management at two very different schools, McGill University in Canada (Desautels) and Rice University (Jones) in the US. Does anyone here have any insight as to which might be better program? I will likely only apply to these two, and perhaps 2-3 other schools. Thanks!
Hey everyone! A big hello from a newcomer to this website. This is the first post I'm making because I'mat THAT stage of my undergraduate life that I realize that I want to study abroad and I need to start preparing for it early. A bit about me. So, I'm currently 19, and have started my second year of my three year Bachelor of Arts Honours course in Political Science. I am from India and once my BA degree is done I want to go abroad and study, with Canada being my top choice because I would eventually like to stay back in Canada and become a permanent resident after a point. Now, my questions are not limited to Canadians, but open to all HOWEVER if you are an Indian who has gone to Canada for Graduate studies in the social science field and have applied to some of the places I'm mentioning below I would be indebted for your insight and if you could recount your experiences to me! So, the places I'm thinking of applying are: University of Toronto, Munk School of Global Affairs, McGill University. These are the three I have in mind so far, but I'm open to adding more.If anyone has applied here and got in, I'd love to know the sort of resume you presented in terms of gpa, non-academic activities and more. Also one very important question, many of these institutes in Canada ask for a Four year BA degree "or equivalent". Well all my Bachelor courses in my college are for three years only, in fact most colleges in India offer three years UG and then a year or sometimes 2 of Graduate studies. So, am I ineligible altogether if I'm only doing 3 years of Undergraduate? Thanks for reading through all of this! I look forward to hearing from some of you!~ Sagnik.
Hello all, I'm currently enrolled in a three-year online program (BA with single hons) in Theology & Religious Studies which is externally validated (accreditated in US terms) from the University of Chester. It is catered through the Bhaktivedanta College. I'm right now in the last year. By the time admission process starts in Canada, I'll be a PR giving me the local student fee advantage. I'm planning further to opt for Masters in Religious Studies. I have an intention to study in one of the three top universities in Canada - University of Toronto, McGill University or University of British Columbia. All three Universities have either accepted that my degree is valid or they will take on case by case basis. None of them have outright rejected the degree. Some additional info is here: My GPA is 3.8+ I have 5-7 online articles published online in blogs, encyclopedias and websites. All are pertinent to Hinduism (which is my major subject and which I further wish to pursue). I have completed two years language study in Sanskrit. Religious studies is language intensive. My project for a book on ancient manuscripts is approved by one of the Universities in India. I'm not willing to publish it before admission but I have the introduction chapter ready to supplement my admission package. I'm also trying to publish an article in an undergrad research journal which I'm very much hopeful of. I've completed a couple of courses from EdX and Coursera. What are my chances of getting admitted to these top-tier Canadian Universities for MA in Religious Studies?
I am applying to the Master of Public Policy at U of T and also the Political Management program at Carleton. My GPA is not amazing 3.35 with a joint honours BA in history and poli sci. I have pretty good references though as well as resume and background experience (including extracurriculars) in terms of volunteering. My professional experience is alright. I've yet to write my letter of intent. What are my chances of getting into either? I was also thinking of applying to Carleton's Public Policy and Admin program but don't know if I'll bother as I won't have enough time to write a good letter of intent most probably.
