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

Exactly! I accepted the offer for GSPIA, but I'm hoping Munk replies soon! although the price of the program is throwing me off a bit! Just wish they could keep up with NPSIA and GSPIA

I got NPSIA today which is my preference over GSPIA so now my clock is reset for Munk.

This is surprising considering their deadline is earlier.

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?

i used to live in the uk for a bit so i know how pricey london can be :) i've been out of school and have saved for grad school, but it would be tough spending so much more at lse than npsia (as well, npsia is really well connected to the federal government and that's where i wanna be nayways. on the other hand, lse is one of the best schools internationally and london is an amazing city. i also like that you can do a regional specialization at lse - but im still waiting to hear back)

and ah well those are all really good choices! like i said to someone else earlier, i think it depends on what you want from your program. if you're leaning more towards private sector work, i think munk is definitely the best fit. u of t/toronto is a great place to be, and you really cant go wrong with any of your choices

Well we could setup a reddit I suppose or just get together for coffee some week soon!

I was actually thinking of seeing if NPSIA/GSPIA applicants already in Ottawa wanted to meet up for coffee and/or a pint

A pint would hit the spot ( but a tea would be ok also.. lol)!         Any good pubs at Carleton??

The grad student pub, "Mike's Place" (named in honour of Lester Pearson) is pretty decent... nothing spectacular on tap, but the beer's alright and the food is probably the best on campus (especially the curries).

Does anyone who applied to Munk know how to access acorn with their applicant number? Last year, applicants could assume that they were accepted by logging in and seeing that they were 'invited' -- around like March 12ish... I thought I'd ask because I'm impatient lol 

You need your student number which is in the application summary on the application website plus you need your JOINid. When you have that use it to register then you can use acorn

Beer and a good curry sounds awesome to me.   Lets see who is around in two weeks and lets meetup!

News from Munk anyone?

Nope. I have a feeling that MGA applicants will not hear back until next week, or the week after... MPP usually hears back a week or two earlier, if everything ends up being the same as last year! I really wish we knew already, the wait is brutal!

I actually was raised in Ontario, but moved to Edmonton in the middle of high school and Went to Lethbridge for uni. I’m still kicking around! What about you?

Grew up just outside of Calgary and did my first year of uni in Lethbridge before transferring to Carleton.
