Hey everyone, This thread was so helpful during the entire process, so I want to address some things that might help those waiting for a response: GPA: I applied with an L10 GPA of 11.30/12

I know everyone's probably feeling super on edge right now, just wanted to wish everyone good luck! Hopefully we'll be hearing back shortly, try to relax and take care of yourselves as much as you can

I received a conditional offer on Mosaic but I haven't been emailed yet so check Mosaic everyone! Has this happened to anyone else?

has anyone heard anything at all? ik its still pretty early 

Nope, nothing. The earliest anyone will hear is late April and I've heard that late April decisions only come out for international applicants. Domestic applicants will still need to wait until May.

@jowilson I love your username! Is it inspired by your actual name or is it Grey's Anatomy inspired?

I'm super nervous as well because the MSc is my top choice + a competitive program.

I have professional experience in research labs at my university and community healthcare settings. My application highlighted my experience at two healthcare clinics, the research positions I've held at two labs, and my senior-year research project which is related to global health.

@hangrypanda haha thank you!! it's not my actual name, it's definitely Grey's anatomy inspired. I've gone through very similar stuff as her which is why she is my absolute favourite character on that show. 

it's also my top choice, good luck to the both of us. 

wow, that's amazing!!! sounds like you're definitely a strong candidate for the program. 

I also have experience in a few research labs, I've worked at an academic health sciences centre in Toronto for 5 years and have published in the area (more so within newcomer and refugee health) and have presented at several conferences (which I tried to highlight in the CV and personal statement).

@jowilson I really hope you're applying for the thesis route given all your awesome research experience! Publishing and presenting???? That's huge! If you're applying to the course route, which field of study did you apply for (e.g. global health management)?

Edit: I applied course route btw :)

@hangrypanda thank you so much!!! I decided to go with course-based and I applied for global health: disease burden, challenges and changes. what about you - did you apply for thesis or course-based and what field of study?

@jowilson Nice! That one sounds very interesting. Though, you're the first person I've met who applied for that specialization. Most people I've met applied for Globalization and Equity or Global Health Management. I chose Implementing Innovations on a Global Scale because I enjoy research and development and social innovation.

Good luck to us both! Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to chat about.

Hi! Does our chosen specialization effect our application in any way?

According to the program's website, no, it does not. However, I believe they said a strong application will demonstrate an interest in your chosen specialization and that you have studied and/or done things related to the specialization.
