A three legged dog with alzheimer would be accepted in UO's masters program.   (I have yet to hear about somebody not getting in)

Did anyone else here apply for the Poli Sci PhD program at Carleton? My status updated this morning to "recommended for assessment" so it appears that they're truckin' along with the applications haha

Just got accepted to the PhD Program at Ottawa! Which is surprising because I wasn't expecting to hear back from them for another month or so! 

"seems like at some a few people should have heard"

 

 

Wowwww, did not realize my edit only made that grammar catastrophe worse.

Good to hear I guess, hope good news comes rolling in for both of us soon!

I found the thread a little late,


I got my acceptance to Munk on Thursday. No official word on funding, though from what I hear I'm not expecting much.

Still waiting on NPSIA/GPSIA, as well as SSHRC decisions on April 1st (which is the cruellest thing imaginable).

Hi, perpetual lurker here. Applied to the Political Science MA programs at UBC, McGill, U of T, and Memorial + SHHRC funding for all. My research interests are political psychology and political communication. Stats: cgpa is 3.9 or 4.0 depending on whether or not they include my first two years, experience as a research assistant for two profs and a PhD student, lots of extracurriculars (writing, electoral politics, activism, undergraduate academic journal), honours thesis, good references (though from faculty not in my subfield). I can only attend any program if its funded.

 

As far as I can tell none of these programs have sent out any MA decisions yet (and from results search seems like it still might be a while) and the wait is killing me. Second-guessing myself like crazy - wish I'd spent more time revising my SOP.  :unsure:

So hopefully this will be comforting to you: you are WAY better on paper as a candidate for an MA than I was and I got into every program I applied to with funding. I think your chances are very good. From what you've listed, I think you'll have your choice of programs. The wait may be awful, but you're going to get in.

U of T masters acceptances are out. 

 

Just called the M.A secretary about decisions on entrance scholarships/OGS etc., apparently those are being released sometime next week. 

 

So late!

Anyone here back from UVic, UBC, York? Sorta getting antsy, as I have 3 business days remaining to accept/reject Carleton's MA offer.

 

UBC won't be making MA decisions for at least another week and a half, decisions probably not out for another two weeks

Yeah, they seemed to have wanted people to respond in two weeks (by the 27th)...which is ridiculous, I didn't even reply to their acceptance email. I mean jeez, they barely fund any of their students then they expect them to commit before SSHRC results come out?

that SSHRC e-mail is tearing me apart

 

basically 'hello, just so you know we've made a decision and have changed everything in the system and everything but you don't get to know 'til tomorrow, see ya!'
