    Backstrom, I assume you got the email last night from the department?

    I wanted to know people's average for last 2 years who applied to mcgill, waterloo and queens or other universities? Also... people who got accepted and started their masters in 2011 fall...can you please share your experiences so far?

    I am considering Dalhousie and Ryerson but i want a third school too...for urban planning masters.

    I did Environmental Study from York with specialization in urban planning. My last year's average would be an A on the dot...and last 2 years would be higher B close to B+ but not quiet a B+ to be exact. I do have strong references and a letter of intent with pretty good field related experiences [traveling, international field experiences from school and work experiences in a community development firm].

    I know ryerson and Dalhousie would consider my application..but i do not meet academic requirement of B+ and above in last 2 years for other universities. Hence I needed some advice as to where else to apply.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks
    You could apply to UofT's program, it's 3.3 (B+) in the last year only.

    btw, 30-35 spots and 20 on the waitlsit out of 178 applicants for UBC this year. Doesn't seem too bad?

    178 applications is quite low for 30 spots. Seems like UBC doesn't draw many interested candidates compared to other schools.

    No, it really isn't.
    Process and dismissal. Shelter and location. Everybody wants somewhere.

    Yep, I got the email, but they actually updated the checklist confirming they received all documents the day of. Now we all play the 4 month long waiting game, I guess.
