Did they send out any rejections yesterday as well or are those all getting saved for Monday?

I'm operating under the assumption that all acceptances have been sent out. That way, I won't get my hopes up.

That being said, has anyone in computer science heard back? It's a pretty large field with (probably) a large number of applicants... So I'm hoping those results haven't come out quite yet.

The Notifications of Decision for the NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship/Postgraduate Scholarship-doctoral (CGS D/PGS D) competition were mailed to applicants on March 29. The letters containing your ranking as well as your scores in the competition will be mailed by mid-April.

Got a CGSD-2 on Friday for computer engineering (committee 198). Applied directly to NSERC. Will be downgrading it to PGSD.

Who did you hear this from? I'm operating under the assumption I didn't get it personally but apparently last year acceptances were sent out on a Friday and Monday.

Is there a chance this is specific to your program or your university?

This is part of their automatic reply whenever someone sends them an Email. I didn't receive any notification from then, so when I sent NSERC and email, the automated reply was sent to me and it included this part. Very frustrating.

Ahhh, I see, thanks. Do they usually do waitlists..?

I agree that is frustrating. Shouldn’t that mean rejections were sent Friday as well then, since that is a “Notification of Decision”. 

I’m pretty sure I didn’t get it, that said, I’m still trying to be hopeful since I haven’t heard of anyone judged by the mol/cell bio category getting an award yet? Although, the sample size is small here.

Yea, I would have interpreted that they would send them all on one day...or at least divide them up in a manner of not "acceptances on friday, rejects on Monday". But we don't know for sure if people have gotten rejections either, we only have a small sample size represented here.

I too am going under the assumption that I didn't get it but apparently this has happened before where they send some acceptances on a Friday and then more on a Monday....which I personally think is just a terrible thing to do without giving any sort of information about what's going on. The waiting wouldn't be as bad if we knew why only some have gotten e-mails and some of us haven't.

I heard some people also received rejections. I guess there's just a bunch of emails that haven't been sent yet. Trying to make sense of this is futile. From what I gather I think the process is just unorganized.. there's no patterns or anything. Just a chunk of the emails are yet to be sent. I think they sent the first batch of emails even though the rest wasn't done because they were trying to avoid a bunch of angry grad students or institutions saying they were late.

I think they do waitlist, since some people would decline the offers.

Hearing that some people have also gotten rejections makes me even more confused! Are these people you personally know?

I definitely agree about the deadline thing. This way they can say they were set to send but that the system just didn't process them all or something ridiculous. I would have preferred at least an email saying the results are being spread over x number of days.

tbh, it aint finalised yet, some ppl may decline the offers and the awards will move down the rank.

Just the PGS D awardees would get bumped up to CGS

Same. I would have thought that they would have been at the top of the "To do" list starting at 9 am today... but I guess not.

I emailed them last Friday and they responded this morning saying "We already mailed the results out on Friday" so I don't know what that means...

Ahh, I remember the Tricouncil Master's awards being announced at midnight through the portal on the determined date. I'm surprised what a mess this is...

Did you reply inquiring about emailed results or have you just given up on them? Haha. Also which email did you send to?
