  1. I am admitted to both schools (Master of Science).
  2. I received offers from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at U of T, Waterloo and Mcgill for their MSc Biostatistics programs. There does not appear to be much information out there on biostatistic programs in Canada. Does anyone have any insight on the pros and cons of these three programs? How are they viewed in the biostatistics field? I am not completely decided on a a PhD yet.
  3. 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 mem
  4. Hi. I've received admits from University of British Columbia, Vancouver and McGill University, Montreal. Both these are funded masters programs. I'm unable to choose between the two! I like the McGill research topic better. The stipend value is also greater here. Plus Montreal is much more cheaper than Vancouver. However, Vancouver is an amazing city to be in and I wouldn't want to miss it(?). Also, not being a francophone might hurt me in Montreal. Any inputs from seniors would be appreciated. For UBC: MASc in Mechanical Engineering For McGill: MEngg (thesis) in Biological
  5. Well, the decision deadline is coming really soon but I'm still hesitating... I currently have 2 offers, one from School of Information Studies, McGill, and the other from Interactive arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University. Both have supervisors appointed. More details are listed below. A. McGill Information Studies: Supervisor: Karyn Moffatt, Canadian research chair, https://scholar.google.com.hk/citations?user=FYdnVc0AAAAJ&hl=zh-CN&oi=ao Human Computer Interaction/Accessibility/Design for Older Adults citation 968, h-index 15 Advantages:
  6. I know it’s usually hard making friends in Grad school because it’s way different to undergrad. Here is a place for incoming McGill grad students to meet each other! Maybe we could state which program we are doing and where we are from?
  7. 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 tha
  8. Hi everyone, just decided to create a thread for McGill ECE Grad Applicants as I didn’t see a dedicated one for that. So feel free to add any input.
  9. Hey guys, I asked the McGill Music School for updates last Thursday, and now received a reply as such... Can't really get what she means. Is this email positive or negative? Does this means I will probably be expecting an offer from them later? Our conversation: H** J* 2019 Feb 07 20:47 EST To whom it may concern, A late Happy Chinese New Year! I hope this email is not bothering you, but I was wondering if you might know when approximately would the admission results be available? Thanks a million Best, H**
  10. Hey Guys, I applied to the MISt program at McGill Information School... Still anxiously waiting. I checked the forum --- It seems they usually have the admission results released between late Jan. to early Feb.. I also read there's a British guy receiving his/her offer a few days ago. I haven't receive any email from the school yet, and my profile was still "in review". I have been thinking about writing to my POI asking for updates but still hesitating, as she told me she wasn't in the committee. That's all what I now know. Anyone's got any news on this program? Thanks a mill
  11. Hey Guys! I have applied to the following unis for a masters in computer science for fall 2019: 1. ETH Zurich 2. University of Waterloo 3. University of British Columbia 4. McGill University My profile is as follows: 1. GPA 3.7/4 (BSc Computer Science from University of Bahrain, best in my country) 2. GRE: 166Q 160V 4.5AWA 3. IELTS: 8.5 4. A senior project on facial recognition using deep learning 5. A year of relevant work experience that includes developing websites and web apps, and teaching robotics and programming to kids. *No
  12. I would like to provide some information regarding the reality of getting admitted to top 5 ranked Canadian graduate schools in the Computer Science Program. I work in the field and it appears to me that many applicants are not aware of some of the basic requirements to be admitted that are not overtly stated but definitely required. Unfortunately, I am unable to reveal my university or position as I wish to remain anonymous. Most of the time, you MUST have previous degree from a top school of your country, especially for students with a degree outside of Canada/USA/UK. This is extreme
  13. Hello, I have a question that may be too specific but hopefully someone out there has some relevant experience/advice. I am trying to decide what to do as a literature student who would like to eventually complete a PhD in linguistics. Right now I am mostly looking into masters programs as it seems that it would greatly help me to complete a masters before even trying to apply to a PhD, but if someone has a suggestion of a PhD program that requires little background in linguistics, I'm game. Here are my studies so far : B.A. English and French literature at a small liberal art
  14. Is is really that much important the reputation of the university? I have been accepted to the MALS Dartmouth, Queen's MA in Political Legal Philosophy, St. Andrews MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies and Sherbrooke University for the Master of Laws (LLM). So far, the advices I have received are really to go with the prestigious school - Dartmouth, Queen's St. Andrews and to not keep Sherbrooke University. However, I do believe there is a value in their degree -- LLM. It is normally quite impossible to enter in that degree without a prior law degree so I have to say that despite
  15. I'm an international student waiting to hear from McGill, Ottawa, Queens and Waterloo. I have applied for a researched based masters program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) with a specialization in Computer Vision. My application was done somewhat in a rush (under 8 weeks). I also didn't realize that contacting professors is necessary to get into a research based program so I'm somewhat skeptical I will get in. My profile is: GPA: 82% (First Class) from a UK university. Every university seems to make their own equivalency but my guess is it ranges from 3.7 to 4.0. R
  16. Does anyone know about biostatistic programs in Canada and how they are viewed in the academic/research field? Specifically McGill/uoft/waterloo. From what I have found McGill - some good professors (highly cited/good journals). Students are competitive in top PhD programs like Harvard/UNC/UW/JH . DLSPH- The school itself is at top public health school in the world. The statistics department at u of t is highly regarded as well. I do not know a lot about the biostatistics program, however, seems very applied. Waterloo - Heard this program is the best in terms of training
  17. Still waiting for the result! It takes too long for the final decision. I've got no message from the school since I finished all the application process. Is there anyone who got any result from Mcgill? +Is there any deadline for the Canadian school for the final decision like US schools?(I've heard that deadline for the US schools is April 15th)
  18. I have received an offer from McGill, University of Toronto, and University of Edinburgh's English Masters programs. I have to accept one of the offers by the end of next week, and I would like some input from others about which school would be better and which school would be more likely to get me into a better American PhD program. McGill Pros: I received my undergraduate education from McGill and am on good terms with the professors here. I have also been offered a $1500 RA-ship with my current supervisor, should I accept. The program is two years long, which provides some
  19. I have been accepted to both U of T and McGill's English M.A. programs, and I really love both!! I have done my undergraduate degree in English at McGill, and if I return for the two-year thesis program, I have been offered a $1500 RAship w/ a supervisor of my choosing. Because I have spent the past four years here, I have strong connections with my professors and am familiar with the expectations of the program. However, U of T has some really appealing options. It is a one-year non-thesis program, which potentially might make me a less enticing PhD candidate (although I do have an
  20. Hi, Has anyone heard from McGill's MA in Bioethics yet?
  21. I guess I'm getting pretty desperate for information, but has anyone out in the wider Grad Cafe community heard of any PhD English acceptances to McGill? I'm still waiting on my application decision and am fully going crazy. Ugh I just want this to be over!!!! Good luck to all. May we come out of this sane.
  22. Hey there everyone. I am an applicant waiting out on my decision for matriculation in McGill Fall-2018. Anyone gets any notification from the department do let us know as well and I will do the same for you. Have a happy waiting period.
  23. I am currently working on a research master's in visual anthropology at FLACSO Ecuador (Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences) and my thesis explores the relationship between the production of popular habitat in Quito-Ecuador and aesthetics. With the premise that aesthetics is necessarily linked to politics, I'm making a tour through the evolution of a neighborhood that was illegally built by its inhabitants thirty years ago and the role of self-organization in line with Jacques Rancière's aesthetic regimes. Because of the time limitations of a master's degree, there are several aspects of
  24. Hey guys, I'm going to be starting my application for my Master's program soon. My first choice is Carleton's NPSIA. I thought I'd start a thread this year so if anyone else is going to apply as well, we can go on this tumultuous journey together. I'm an international student, so the processes and such may be different and requirements more extensive, but I'm sure we can all find some commonality. And also benefit from discussion.
