I finally got my letter and was ranked 68 out of 133 (51.1%) for chemistry PGS 3D. I am on the waitlist but feel my chances of getting it are low. Does anyone know the cut off rank this year (i.e. how many people were accepted)?

I am currently ranked 57 out of 133 for chemistry and waitlisted... I'm also wondering what is the cut off rank!

Wow that's 42.9% ... definitely a much lower cut-off compared to previous years. In chemistry for 2017 it was 46%. I think you are definitely close to the cut-off and should get the award soon. Me on the other hand I think I have a very low chance at 51.1%.

Committee 117 here. 51/110, which doesn’t look so good as they have never given out more than 47. I don’t know how valuable it is to calculate percentages if they only have funding for a fixed number of applications except to fantasize about what it would have been like in a year with fewer applicants.

I think its roughly around 40%

Do applicants with CGS/PGS often rejected them? Is it like only one or two do reject the award so being waitlisted means there's no chance you will get one?

As I recall in past years for my committee it has been  around 45%, yes.

Got my ranking letter. I'm ranked 78/160 im my committee 117 (Chemical, Biomedical and Materials Science Engineering). Even though I'm waitlisted, I don't think I'll take it because I feel that I'm far away from the cutoff mark. Anyone who got the scholarship from commitee 117 mind sharing what their ranking is? Or any other committee?

I'm also under the impression only maybe 1 or 2 people in each committee decline their award. Anybody have more info on this?

Got my ranking yesterday. Got CGSD3, ranked 9th out of 148 applications, committee 196 psychology. Since my uni is abroad, I will be switched to the PGSD3 automatically.

Anyone know how competitive we would have been if we applied to the Vanier? I couldn't because I was abroad. The criteria looks quite similar. I feel though all of this ends up being quite subjective at the end of the day.

From my understanding, only 148 apps got forwarded from the universities across Canada (+ direct applicants) for committee 196. Is there any stats on how many people applied in the first place at each uni, before they decided who got forwarded? 

Do you know how many people applied at your uni?

I got a PGSD- Does anyone know if we can see how many people got CGSD? I want to calculate my chances of getting promoted to CGSD.

  

based on previous years, I think it's about the top 20-25% of people in your committee.

In the acceptance letter, it says that we should not communicate publicly that we have gotten the award until it is posted in the NSERC website. Does that mean that we can't add the award to our Linkedin, resume,... until then?
