In departmental form, until yesterday my top two research interest was locked and top POI. I.e. unchangeable. Today suddenly they have become changeable again. What does it mean? Has anybody else expe

Since our applications are getting reviewed and SGS status updated to "under review", I think it a good time start this thread.  My worries: I did not mention POI's name in SOP. Mentioned in de

Hi. Thanks for your response. I am heavily relying on one strong LOR from Max Planck and my bachelors is from a top IIT (i hope that is somewhat known, obviously still not among the top schools in the

I just had my interview with a theory prof. He told me that starting from this year U of T's MSc program no longer accepts international students, so they will consider me for PhD direct entry instead.

Well, that's some unexpectedly bad news ?

Is it like this for all groups?

Is it specific to your research area or in general?

From the looks of the front page of the search, it seems like if the option unlocked means you didn't get through. It's one guy so I'd take it with a grain of salt, but this doesn't look good ?.

Well I applied to MSc in Human Computer Interaction... I contacted my POIs but neither 2 (Grossman, and Munteanu) replied...

I don't think I really have a chance, though. Don't think my profile competitive. GPA 3.86/4(3.91/4 in final year) from an ordinary Univ in China, GRE 161/165/3, Merely a DIS (2nd author), and all 3 LORs came from mainland China/HK. I was a summer intern at McGill in 2017, but Jeremy isn't writing a LOR (He's on sabbatical...)

I think the changes in the Research Area and PoI shouldn't be a big problem.

 

Fact is that my Research Area is always changeable ever since I submitted my MSc application form.

And I got an interview yesterday. So be relaxed.

Thank you for this. It's a relief. Also can you please let us know your research area? It would be helpful to identify the departments that are issuing the interview requests. Thanks in advance.

Nope. Why did I apply to UofT? I did not submit a GRE score, I'm an international student, just fucked myself over. FUCCCCCCCCCK !!!

Do you have a US/Canadian bachelor's degree? If so, it shouldn't matter much from what I have heard.

For those interested: I have been told that last year there were about 220 domestic applicants for the MSc program, of which about 70 received offers. There were slightly less than 900 international applicants for the MSc, receiving about 40 offers. 

Of course, if international applicants aren't being considered for the MSc this year - and given that we received an email stating that there are an unprecedented number of applicants this year, I'm not sure how helpful this is.

Hey Goku, I see u have applied to waterloo too. Any news from them?

Haven't heard anything from them yet. For their program I went with the non-thesis/coursework option, so it might differ unless you chose the same.

You got an email regarding the large number of applicants? I didn't get any email regarding that.

"The DCS form must be completed by midnight 18 December as reviewing
will begin on the 19th. We have an unprecedented number of applications
this year and the decision making process will be even more difficult than
usual. "
