    When did you hear from u of t??? My application still says "under review" and I'm wondering now if I'm on their waiting list or something since they have sent out some acceptance and rejection letters already. I really hope I get accepted!

    I got an email yesterday but when I went online to check the status mine still said under review. I'm assuming they made some decisions yesterday but did not update the website. Hopefully you will hear something soon!

    Thanks! and congratulations!!!

    So you haven't received a paper letter in the mail yet? I didn't realize they were going to send out emails because the explanation for the status of "decision made" says they will send a letter in the mail... I'm getting so antsy!

    Thanks!

    Nope no letter. The email I received said that my package should arrive in the mail early this week so I'll be checking the mailbox for it everyday!

    Good Luck!

    scholarships?

    It seems I missed all the deadlines to apply for scholarships. Does anyone know if it is still possible to apply to any?

    If my grad program I applied to is 2 years long, will it be possible to apply for a scholarship for the second year of study or is that not how it works?



    Still waiting to hear from U of T, Ryerson and McGill...

    I have been accepted to U of T with some good funding! I have not heard from UBC yet.

    Impressions of UT's program?

    Congrats! What kind of funding are they offering? like TA/RAships? I applied to u of t as well but I haven't heard back yet. I hear it has a lot of more theory type courses instead of more hands on so it might not appeal to everyone.

    There are two people who were accepted to UBC by email last Thursday, according to this thread: http://www.cyburbia.org/forums/showt...=38769&page=23

    I haven't heard anything yet. Trying not to panic.

    Hi, I was informed about McGill's recommendation on Feb 17 and received the formal confirmation in the mail on the 20th. They only gave me a week to accept their offer with a deposit.

    Any thoughts on McGill's program? it seems to be a little more practical with a lot of emphasis on design but I don't know about their focus on environmental planning. I am interested in both fields.

    I am still waiting to hear back from uoft though (planning and MLA)

    Have to accept U of T's offer by Monday.....panic has set in especially seeing offers from McGill and UBC have gone out....guess each school sends out first round and waits for acceptances before (hopefully) they send second round.

    I've been accepted to Queen's and Waterloo for a Masters in Planning.

    I am still waiting for UBC, U of M, and U of C.

    Mostly anticipating the word of UBC, if I get in there, I'll certainly have a difficult choice to make.

    It looks like UBC sent out acceptances by email and rejections by snail mail at the same time last year. So, I figure if I don't get either by the end of this week, it means waitlist. Which is better than nothing! Of course, this is all rampant speculation.

    Congrats on the U of T acceptance! Since you have to reply by Monday, do you think I might be on a waiting list since I haven't heard from them yet?

    For everyone else that got a U of T acceptance letter, do you have to respond by Monday as well???

    I'm surprised that I have not heard anything back from UBC yet, since their deadline was one/two months before most other schools.

    U of T must have gone really quickly through their process, since it seems that almost everyone has already received their rejection/acceptance letters by snail mail already.

    Gaijin, I haven't heard from U of T yet. Another waitlist, perhaps?
    I also applied to Dalhousie and haven't heard anything. Nobody here has mentioned them yet, that I've seen.

    Looks like everyone is waiting to hear from UBC....best of luck to all.

    Anyone apply to U of M? I'm not overly confident about my chances there since the entrance class is half the size of everywhere else.

    That's okay, I'm feeling comfortable with Queen's and Waterloo. Both are excellent choices and anything else is just gravy.

    UT's acceptance letter had rather poor sentence structure and said 2009-2010 not 10-11. Should I be worried?

    Just got rejected from UofM. Their online thing told me that a decision had been made and I should contact the Admissions Office. They made me call long distance to hear i've been rejected......

    Dal has sent out acceptances for students with 3.7+ GPA and once they accept/pass the rest of us will know.

    Queens sent out its initial list of rejections (thankfully not on it). The director is out of town and should be returning next week. Thats when final decisions will be made im guessing.

    Ryerson and York will be early April probably.

    Possibly. I received a rejection letter in the mail last Friday, so you may still be in the running!

    Ryerson sent out their first batch of acceptance letters this week according to a student who is currently in the program right now. I haven't received anything from them though which is driving me nuts.
