yellowtulip Posted March 12, 2012 Share Posted March 12, 2012 From what I understand, unlike previous years, NSERC was only able to notify X numbers of students, regardless of whether or not they accepted (i.e. they weren't able to over-award). It just so happens that last year was also the first Banting competition, and since this competition was a separate application than the NSERC PDFs, presumably many Banting winners also won a PDF (which of course they couldn't accept both, so this presumably left many un-awarded PDFs). I wonder if this is what might have led last year's numbers to be so low. Maybe I'm totally wrong on this front, and there was coordination between the Banting & PDF awarding process, in which case, well, shucks... the numbers look low! Hopefully it isn't as low this year!! My fingers are crossed Lucky Ottawa folk? I say lucky Canadians! I'm out of country doing my PDF, so suspect I won't get a letter for quite some time! Hmm... I wish it was electronic! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
