University of Alberta Fall 2014 Applicants

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Has anyone received any notice regarding their application from the department of anthropology at the University of Alberta? The deadline was January 5 for submission of all materials but the offers still have not been made yet! Ugh! I have already received an offer from the University of Calgary (not anthropology, though), for the M.A program, and their deadline was January 7th! 

 

I guess it depends on when the committees can sit down and make decisions, but has anyone heard anything back yet? Please post even if you're not an anthropology applicant!

I haven't heard from the University of Alberta nor the University of Calgary. :( 

 

UofC gave me a mid-March timeline for when I'll hear back, but I haven't even got an estimated time frame for the UofA

What did you apply to for the University of Alberta and Calgary? I got my offer from UofC on Feb 28th, but it's not my dream program. UofA reaaaaaally needs to get their stuff together. Apparently, they have met and they're beginning to formulate offers. Given that the deadline was January 5th for submission of all materials, I would have expected them to give me results by the end of February, too. I know how inconsiderate that sounds but still...this is just soooo agonizing.

It must differ by department, since the physics deadline was February 1st, and I was accepted either February 1st or 2nd (I forget) and I heard some people were accepted before the deadline even.

I had to contact my department (History and Classics) to get any update on my admission status. Good news came back, so maybe emailing the department head would help?

UofA is quite slow with official acceptances. I second the advice to contact the department directly; it's quite possible they have already made decisions and are just waiting for official word through the graduate school. (And figuring out funding.)

I applied for Ecology programs. I still haven't heard a word from Alberta, but I'm expecting admissions decisions for Calgary to come back late March.

I got wait listed. Apparently, I'm high on the waiting list and there's a very good chance they'll get to my application. Just a heads up would have been nice. I have to wait until April 1 now, but whatever.
