  1. 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.
  2. Applying to Munk 2017 - also NPSIA, GSPIA, BSIA etc

    Hi all, I thought I'd start a thread specifically for those of us applying to Munk and other Canadian international affairs programs for fall 2017. Topic name begins with Munk simply because that's my first choice lol Applications haven't opened yet but I figured, why not Here's last cycle's thread:
  3. Hey guys, I was wondering about who has applied to bachelor of education or teaching programs in Ontario! I have some questions: Which schools have you applied to? For what age concentration? What are your teachables? What was your GPA? What relevant experience did you have? I've applied to OISE, UOIT, and York for intermediate/senior. My teachables are biology & social science. I had a ~4.0 GPA in my last 2 years. I worked in a local high school for the past 2 years.
  4. Epidemiology Status

    Hi guys! I'm a fourth year BSc Psychology student with a 3.85/4.0 GPA in my last two years. I have 2 years worth of experience working on a large Epidemiological study, as well as 3 years of experience working as a Manager at a hospital. I received an A+ in all my Statistics courses in my undergrad. Here are my status' for the universities I have applied to so far, and I'm getting kinda worried since it's May and I still haven't heard news from Queen's yet. MSc Epidemiology Ottawa- Rejected MPH Epidemiology Toronto- Waitlisted MSc Epidemiology Queen's- No news Anyone hear back from MSc Epi Queen's yet?
  5. Queen's MPA or Ryerson MA

    I've gotten offers from Queen's MPA program and Ryerson MA in Public Policy and Administration. I'm leaning towards Queen's; their program is ten months and offers a co op program at the end. Ryerson is 1.5 - 2 years with field study opportunity. Queen's seems like it has a more diverse bank of courses, a lot of which stand out to me. Is anyone out there in a similar position or have experience that could shed light on how the two programs compare? Thanks!
  6. So I've received offers so far from Queens (MPA) and Ryerson (MA -Public Policy and Admin), but still waiting to hear back from UofT and UVic. I got early acceptance to Queen's, just in the past week to Ryerson. Has anyone gotten rejections yet from UofT/Uvic? I know that UofT has already sent out at least one wave of offers. What should I expect over the next few weeks? What would you say my chances are? Does anyone have insight into the central differences between the programs I'm choosing from? Thanks!
  7. Hi guys! I was wondering if any of you have gotten any feedback regarding your applications so far, especially from the ECE departments? Best regards!
  8. Queen's Uni MPH

    If anyone is applying to Queen's MPH program, do you know if can submit our CV anywhere?
  9. There isn't a thread for Queen's yet, so here goes. I will (most likely) be attending Queen's in the fall, and I thought perhaps those of you who would be going there could join me in a discussion on the following topics: moving to Kingston finding a place to live size of the program you'll be attending next steps cool places to hang out and anything else interesting Okay... GO!
  10. Hello, I've been accepted into both the Masters of Industrial Relations at Queen's University and the Masters of Industrial Relations and Human Resources at the University of Toronto. Does anyone have any experience with these programs? I was originally leaning towards U of T because it's a more recognized school (especially internationally) and I like the fact that you can specialize in both industrial relations and HR. However, the program is twice as long (it is 2 years versus 1 at Queen's). Doing the Masters at U of T will also mean that I will have to pay at least twice as much as the program at Queen's since I'll have to pay for 2 years of tuition and 2 years of living costs (plus Toronto is more expensive to live in than Kingston). Of course, it'll also mean that I'll be out of the workforce for an extra year. To add to this, Queen's has offered me some funding whereas I will likely get none from U of T. I'm not sure whether job prospects would differ much between the two degrees? Would it be more difficult to get into HR if I wanted with the degree from Queen's? Is the name of the degree (ie. industrial relations) too abstract? I'm also interested in learning about if one program is more satisfying academically. I'm looking at both the quality/learning experience of the program and the job situation following graduation - both are important to me. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
  11. Like my people who have gotten multiple acceptances, I am confused as to where I should go. I have been accepted at Queen's for their MA in political studies program with full funding. In addition, I got accepted at McGill for their MA in political science program, no word on funding yet. I am inclined to accept the offer by Queen's because of their course offering and the research interests of their faculty members. On the other hand, McGill is considered as one of the top universities in Canada but their faculty members specialize in an area which is very different from what I am interested in. I will only go, if i go, to McGill because of their reputation. At the end of the day, I want to do a phd in political science from an American university. My question is this: will it hurt me if I go to Queen's instead of McGill? Will my chances increase if I do my MA from McGill? Any help will be much appreciated.
  12. I have to make decision between two offers. Both are PhD offers with well funding. I am an international student and I am planing to find a job in North America after graduate. 1. Chemistry in Carnegie Mellon. High reputation, very strict supervisor who leads a very top group in polymer synthesis but only publishing papers (lots of papers...). Pittsburgh looks like a good place to live. But I am afraid of finding a job with a PhD degree in chemistry. 2. Chemical Engineering in Queen's. Nice supervisor in polymer reaction engineering, easy projects, not too much synthesis, kind of relaxing research life. May get graduate within 3-4 years. I really don't know which school is better for my professional career, especially under current economic situation. Which one should I choose? Canada or US? I am eager to your advices. Thank you .
  13. McGill or Queen's - History MA

    Hi, all. I've recently been accepted to a number of graduate schools in Ontario and Quebec and I'm trying to decide between my top three choices. I plan on doing an MA in History. 1. McGill - Offers a TAship of up to about $4800 if I apply for it. - Tuition plus rent and living expenses are around $12,000 for the year. 2. University of Toronto - Offered no funding to any MA students. - Tuition is about $8100 but I live in Toronto so I won't have to pay rent. 3. Queen's - Offered me a TAship and scholarship totalling more than $8000 in funding. - Tuition is about $6000 and rent will probably make it $10,000-11,000 in expenses. Now, I'm planning on applying to some American or European universities for my PhD, and I was considering McGill because it's supposed to have a high international reputation, in addition to being ranked the best in Canada for History. UofT is good and reputable but supposedly bloated, and I've heard they pay little attention to their Master's students. Queen's has been enthusiastic, offering me good funding and they invited me to a recruitment event so I could tour the campus and meet the faculty and students. They are also pretty good in terms of reputation and quality of teaching. I just heard it had more of an undergraduate focus, whereas McGill is a research university with an emphasis on graduate work. I'm also not so sure whether Queen's is well-known outside of Canada. I know your university's reputation isn't as important as your supervisor, your performance and your accomplishments, but I want to make a decision that can put me in the best possible position to get into a school like Stanford or maybe even Princeton. Does anyone with experience or knowledge of these schools have any advice to help me decide?
  14. Possible acceptance at CUNY-Queens?

    CUNY-Queens emailed me to say that they liked my application, and they are looking forward to reviewing the rest of the documents that I have sent them. Does this mean I can possibly looking forward to an acceptance letter from CUNY? It's not my top choice, but I would be happy to go there if I don't get into my top 3 choices. I wanted to see what you all think.
