Hello everyone, Wishing you and your loved ones the best health, I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread for OISE's MA-CSE program in Fall 2022. Hopefully we can share our experiences and support each other through the application process We got this!
Hey, I want to apply to an MA at UoT in political science for fall 2021 with the goal of following that up with a PhD in political theory in the same university. I tried applying to PhD programs in Sociology in multiple universities but I wasn't accepted and some one from a certain admissions office told me its because my grades in my masters were low. So I decided to start from masters again and be consistent since my actual interests are in political theory and not sociology. I want to know what my chances are of getting accepted in the MA PoliSci program at UoT are and what can I do to improve them in your opinion(s). I would appreciate your comments on whats below. Here's a list of my qualifications: BSc Edmund Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, International Politics major, with a Certificate of Regional and Arab Studies thesis. 3.48 GPA. Merit Scholarship recipient. MSc in Culture and Society (Sociology) The London School of Economics and Political Science, graduated with a pass. Full Chevening Scholarship recipient. Published an academic article in an academic journal briefly after finishing my BSc. Worked as a Course Assistant in Georgetown University after finishing my masters from LSE. Bilingual, and currently learning french as a third language. I did the GRE three times last year and my grades were: first attempt: writing 4.5 / quant 146 / 157 verbal second attempt: writing 4.0 / quant 151/ 156 verbal third attempt: writing 5.0 / quant 146/ verbal 155 For recommendation letters: Last year I had two professors from my masters program write me letters, but it seems they are declining this year (since they ignored my emails), which leaves me with A professor from my undergrad school who was also the dean for academic affairs in the same school and later for a graduate program in the same university (I did very well in his class and he was enthusiastic about writing me a letter in the past). He wrote me letters in the past. A professor from my undergrad school whom I took multiple courses with and got As in all of them. She wrote me letters in the past. Finally, the director of the econ department in my undergrad school who offered to write me a letter out of his own will last year and I took him on his offer this time. I never studied with him. I would appreciate any comments, advice, and questions. Thank you.
Hey Everyone! I haven't been able to find a thread for uoft ischool so I thought I would just start it here. I haven't heard back yet, I applied on January 31st for the program as well as OGS, I was wondering if anyone has found out if they have been accepted or rejected yet? I know they told us we would hear by the 3rd, but with that approaching so quickly I just thought it would be useful to have this forum. Best of luck to everyone! Thanks in advance for the responses!
