  1. This is my first time starting a forum so please be kind to me In the past, it looks as if cohort groups start the forum a little later. However, I'm stressing out and I wanted to start a forum that is along the same lines as the ones before it, and use it as a type of support group. I've put all of the programs for P/J divisions together, and thought that this forum coud be used to discuss acceptances, applications, and anything else related. Ill start by talking about my application: I'm in my final year studying public health. The year previous I made Dean's list (fall 2017) and presidents list (winter 2018). My over all average is 78% but my average last year was between 82-85%. I've worked with an after school program going on 5 years where I run gym activities and do some teaching and tutoring (ages 4-13), the past 3 summers I've worked as a kindergarten readiness teacher (ages 3-6), I work as a supply ECA (ages 2-12), and I worked one summer as a camp arts/crafts specialist (ages 2.5-13). My references were from a work supervisor for the kindergarten readiness program, and a professor who I don't know well, but I got good grades in their class. I applied to, in order, MACSE, MT P/J, and MT J/I. I'm really hoping I get into this program. I'm applying to other schools for teaching, but of course this is my first choice.
  2. Anyone applying for the 2022-2024 medical illustration cohort? I've had my interview with Augusta on Feb 7th and with UIC on Feb 28th but haven't heard anything yet...I figure if I have to wait this long it's probably a rejection. I wish they could just give me an answer to put me out of my misery.
  3. Hi, I have applied to MPH epi at UofT for the fall 2022 intake. My application status page still shows submitted and not changed to 'under review'. Is it a technical glitch or is there a problem with my application? Kindly provide inputs on this. Also, any news on tentative dates of declaration of results? Last year around this time results started going out. Thank you
  4. I thought it would be useful to create a space for those who have applied for MEd - COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY at OISE this year. Hope doing this will help me not to stress much during the waiting period lol! This is my second time applying to the program, and last year I was put on waitlist. Keep our fingers crossed and good luck to all of people who have applied!
  5. Hi everyone, I am applying for the MHI program UofT and Waterloo for the Fall 2019 intake. Wondering who else has applied for these and whether your applications are submitted?
  6. Hi I am a 3rd year life sciences major, and am hoping to apply to the UofT biostatistics program next year. My grades are decent (high 80 average), I have an okay background in math as I am also a math minor (I have completed all of the math course requirements for the MSC program), and I know python and some R. However, I do not have any relevant work or research experience. With COVID the one internship I had lined up fell through and it has been really tough to find other ones. I was just wondering how relevant relevant work/research experience is for admission for this particular program.
  7. Hi guys, I am a bio major student who got accepted at Waterloo and UofT for MS in biostatistics. I can't decided between the two programs and I am seeking some advice. I want to apply for PhD programs after graduate and go to pharm companies as a biostatistician later ideally. Waterloo Biostat MS Pros: - Offer TAship to cover the tuition and part of the living expenses - Under math faculty and the courses are harder (theoretical), which I thought it would be great for me to build a solid math foundation and for going to PhD - Students need to work with a supervisor for the research project in the last semester (4 months) Cons: - They have Co-op positions but its not guaranteed while I don't have much experience - Again the courses are hard and I'm concerned that if I can't keep up then I'm screwed (I took cal1-3, lin alg1, math stat, reg analysis, taking time series, and plan to take lin alg2) UofT Biostat MS Pros: - They have a practicum course which allows students to work in hospitals/research institutes every week, so more practical experiences - Under public health department, the courses are more applied and I might like it and perform better (maybe) - There is a thesis option (12 month) after the first year of courses Cons: - No guaranteed financial aids, I can try to look for TA positions though - Not sure how competitive is for transferring to thesis option and Phd program? Thank you so much in advance for your valuable input!
  8. Hi there! Posting to ask about recommendations of MA program in political science. International applicant here, with interest in democratic theory and ethnic politics. Currently received offers from U of Toronto MA in Polisci (1yr program, no funding, not thesis based program, 26k CAD tuition fee) and Georgetown MA in Democracy and Governance (2yr program, no funding, 120k expense for two years study including living expense) Still waiting for response from NYU, Chicago and UBC Any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks!!!
  9. Hi! I am an international applicant intended to pursue MA degree in North America. Got offers from U of Toronto and Georgetown, Georgetown MA program is so expensive (120k USD for two years including living expense) while it is more exclusive and it's a 2 yr program; Toronto is fine with an affordable tuition fee (26k CAD) for intl. students but it's a 1yr program and not thesis based. Any ideas of which program to recommend? Thanks!!
  10. Is there a thread for Fall 2021 Medical Sciences program at McMaster University or University of Toronto IMS? I've applied to both the schools for the MSc program and looking to see if there's anyone else on the same boat?
  11. Hey everyone! Starting this thread because I found that the same threads relating to UofT's iSchool admissions from 2018 and 2019 were really helpful to me. Just wondering, did anyone else apply for the iSchool program this year for the Fall 2021 start date? Did you apply to other schools? I applied for the Fall 2021 start date and finished my application before the January 31st early deadline, so just wondering if anyone else here is in the same boat. In SGS my status is "Documents Received - excl. official transcripts." Super anxious to hear back!
  12. Hey everyone, As decisions roll out for the UofT iSchool Master's and PhD programs, I thought I would create this thread so we can share information. Please feel free to post any FYIs or questions you may have 🙂 Has anyone heard back regarding the status of their application, and whether they were accepted/ rejected?
  13. Found the other thread from 2018 related to the University of Toronto's iSchool programs very helpful, so thought I would start a thread for this upcoming year. Anyone else apply for the ischool programs for next year? Have you applied to other schools ? I applied to the Master of Information program for fall, and got an acceptance letter in mid January. I submitted my application in early November. I have also applied to the Communication and Culture at Ryerson, but haven't heard back anything from Ryerson yet. The MI program is my preferred program between the two, but I am only worry about the iSchool program is the cost compared to the program at Ryerson.
  14. I am applying to the MSW program at U of Toronto this year or the September 2021 intake. In particular the 2 year program as I do not have a BSW. The admission requirements state that you need a minimum B+ in your final year, however transcripts are to be sent in by November. I contacted the department and it seems that the admissions will be based last year's grades. Last year I had a health crisis in my fourth year and had to drop some courses. I got to A's, but also a C and a D+. I did well before that year. Anyways, I am doing a fifth year with full course load. I am worried about my possibility for acceptance. I think I can do very well this year in terms of grades, but they will not get to see those grades. If you have any experience with poor grades in your previous year, but stellar grades in final year let me know. Iff you have experience with the admissions committee basing your admission off of your final year grades let me know. I would also like to know in general what stats people had if they were admitted or rejected to the U of Toronto MSW program from grades to experience.

  16. Hi everyone, it looks as if cohort groups in previous years start a topic forum and use it as a type of support group while we wait to hear back from OISE. I haven't seen a topic for Fall 2020 applications, so I thought I started one. I was wondering if anyone has received an invitation for an interview from the MA Child Study and Education program?
  17. Figured I'd start a thread for MPP 2020 hopefuls! I know it'll probably be at least another month till we hear back but we can communicate and share info on this post in the meantime ☺️
  18. Hello everyone, Thought I would make a group for those applying to Master of Health Informatics at University of Toronto for Fall 2017. Perhaps we can keep each other updated regarding interviews, acceptances, etc. Other health informatics programs at other universities are welcome too! Good luck!
  19. Hey All, First-time poster, here. I was wondering if anyone has been waitlisted by OISE or has ever received a non-standard admission from them. What were your experiences and what did they say?
  20. hi! I was admitted to both University of Toronto and University of British Columbia for a master of architecture this fall 2019. I need some opinions from objective outside sources to help me make my decision! Which do you think is a better school? For reference, UBC is offering me a semesters worth of advance credits and the tuition is nearly 10K less than U of T. BUT U of T is a more internationally renowned school, is where I did my undergrad and is close to my home. They gave me an entrance scholarship but not enough to cover the 10K difference in tuition, and no advanced placement. The biggest concern for me is moving across the country to Vancouver when I have some important familial responsibilities near Toronto that make it challenging to leave. Anyway internet stranger, please help me decide!

  22. Did anyone hear back from this program? I think the first wave of offers and rejections came out around March 7th, but haven't heard about anything since then. My status is still "under review."
  23. This thread is for anyone applying to the Munk School of Global Affairs program for Fall 2018.
  24. Is there an online live forum to see if History MA acceptance/rejections 2019 have started coming out as yet ?
  25. Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone has heard back in regards to interviews? Thanks ?
