I'm sorry to hear that. Did they notify you through email or portal? What did it say?

Oh i received a pretty long email indicating that I have been accepted to the program and that email did attach a letter from the dean of the department

I applied to the same program, got offer letter from school two weeks ago. They started sending offers. Hopefully you’ll also get by the middle of April.

Anyone have insights into UBC or UofT that could help ease my decision? Im having a really tough time deciding between the two schools. Both are MPH.

For those who got into UfT, did they give you results of your OGS funding? Or information about any other scholarships you might've received?

I was accepted into uofa back in February and sfu on March 15 as well. Those were both by email

I was rejected by UBC MPH today :(  and now I feel quite pessimistic about my other MPH applications (Waterloo, Guelph, and Lakehead). 

I was wondering if having professional or research experience plays play a big role in your acceptance? I would like to know this for future applications. 

I only had volunteer experience at hospitals and retirement communities.

Just got rejected from UBC today for MPH! Finally... my cycle is over. Notified via email.

Rejected from UofT awhile ago, but I got accepted to a program in the states (my homeland) so I'll be peacing out of Canada.

They said "I regret to inform you that your application for admission to the Health Sciences MPH program in the Faculty of Health Sciences was unsuccessful. We received many excellent applications this year and the admissions committee that reviewed your application was unable to recommend admission. We receive far more applications for admission than we can possibly admit due to resource limitations and therefore some deserving applicants cannot be admitted."

Congrats. Are you an international student? Who is the supervisor that agreed to supervise you? Whats your profile? When did you apply?

I was wondering which of the following programs would be my best option, as I am really unsure how to weigh the different strengths/weaknesses of the programs:

1) Accelerated MPH at Queen's (1 year program)

2) UBC MPH (5k scholarship)

3) UofT Social and Behavioural Sci MPH (Acceptance email but no offer letter??) 

4) McMaster MPH (Acceptance email but no offer letter??) 

pls help!!

What day did you hear from U of T?

I’m wondering if everyone got their offers in the same day, or if they are coming gradually. (Hoping for the latter 😁)

I finally received a rejection from SFU, so I have accepted my offer to USask. If anyone else has accepted their offer, I'd love to chat and get to know people ahead of time so feel free to send me a DM! Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back from their programs!

I am sure they are coming gradually as I got mine about 2-3 weeks after my friend did :)

I just heard that I got in through email, although my sgs status hasn't changed

of course! I am currently completing my BSc, will be graduating in a month! I've worked a bit in health care: pharmaceutical industry (for a year), research at a university/hospital (for about 2 years, part time during school on a volunteer basis), and had a short stint at the government. Volunteering a bit here and there and trying out a few clubs/student societies at school. Hope that helps, feel free to shoot me any questions.
