Electrical Engineering University of Toronto or Wait?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I have offers for research (MaSc. program with funding) at U of T, and I've gotten an official acceptance of which I must reply back by March 24.  In the meantime, it is still possible for me to get accepted into the PhD program for research at UCLA and Cornell, both of which are my choices over U of T.  However, up to this point I haven't heard anything from these schools and the result page already had some acceptances.  Should I assume I got rejected and just accept U of T?  If after accepting the offer I got offers from UCLA or Cornell, what should I do to inform my U of T prof that I am not going to be your student in fall? (I know it looks bad especially after you officially said yes).


Thanks for your help!

I wouldn't assume anything. I would pick up my phone and call Cornell and UCLA to know my application status. You need to know facts to make a decision... Not assumptions.

And please, DO NOT accept an offer that you can potentially turn down a few days later. It is just not the right thing to do, and everybody loses.

Good luck

Thanks EngGrad for your advise. I will call the schools and find out my status.

In a day in which everything is done through email, you'd be surpised by the amount of information you can get with a phone call.

Best of luck, and congrats on your u of t acceptance! :-)
