Yeah, I think we all went through the stages @schneebz laid out up above:  preliminary review in progress > recommended for assessment > review in progress by department.

Funny enough I didn't get the "review in progress" alert.   It's still showing recommended...   weird...

Yeah the process in the link I attached earlier: https://graduate.carleton.ca/application-status/ ... is garbage (as per my original comment). Past forums all say the same thing regarding getting offers at various stages of the process and going forwards/backwards randomly. Carleton Central is super glitchy and I think all of the recent confusion proves it.

Weirdly, this is the first time I've really had any issue with Carleton Central since transferring to Carleton a couple years ago...

Aside from the from the fact that it looks like it was designed in 1996.

So far only got an unofficial acceptance  with funding but it was my first choice of specialization and I'm hoping if I was able to get in I'd also make it for that. Currently nothing showing up for specialization though

Yep it said funding info will come along with the official offer. Really curious because it could literally be any amount - I've read in previous forums some people get a few thousand while others essentially get over 10k.

It's between npsia and lse for me. I'm also deciding on whether to leave my job - but the goal is to work for global affairs in Ottawa and npsia is amazing for that!! 

How about you

LSE is great, I am from London, it is an amazing city. Are you concern about the cost of it all in London. Are you leaning one way or another?

I am debating between Munk and NPSIA, I applied to GSPIA as a back up but the French requirement was a concern for me.

What is your current job if you don't mind me asking?

Nice! I'd been considering applying to LSE (among other places) this year, but dawdled a little too much and only wound up getting my app in at Carleton. 

Also in a similar boat regarding leaving my job. I'm in government now, but I don't know if I can do another two years of school and work simultaneously.

GSPIA already handed their first round of admissions early this month. I received my offer on the 14th. Some heard a few days before me. Munk is gonna start Mid March as their website states. From previous threads, it usually starts around March 7th. Good Luck!

This is my worry I have 5 more days to decide on GSPIA but Munk won't even send things out till mid march. I wonder why they do it that way
