    Nope haven't heard anything yet. One person in my class got a rejection as well, but everyone else is just waiting.

    Congrats EasternLance that is great news! If it makes you feel better there is no more Doctoral-Stream program at UoT any longer I had that confirmed by Ettore. Some people will be pre approved to take Core PhD sequences however they will be awarded the same degree and not receive the same levels of funding as previous years from my understanding. I was confused as well when I received my offer letter..

    As someone who grew up in Toronto and had to do their undergrad in the states, this is outcome is the best I could've hoped for since I always planned to return to Toronto at some point.

    I mean sure, getting accepted into the PhD stream would've been nice but I'm 21 and my desire to pursue a PhD might change, so paying 8.5k for a top quality MA is a decision I won't regret.

    Other than that, I honestly feel like I got placed appropriately and I'm confident I can do well in the general program. If you're reading this and you've decided to attend UofT's MA program next fall then shoot me a PM, I'll be refreshing (Calc and real analysis during June and I'd love some company :P).

    P.S - Special thanks to ecomath for putting my mind at ease about this whole process, i'd love to meet you one day on St. George campus - Lunch will be on me

    Thank you tt11qj,

    Out of curiosity, did you decide to attend UofT?

    I ask because I remember us talking about our profiles, I felt like we had a similar background. I'm glad you got so many great offers, I think you'll be successful anywhere you go. Best of luck man, maybe i'll see you in Toronto.

    Hey easternlance, my decision came down to western and UoT but I ultimately decided to attend western for reasons related to funding and how the overall program fit with my interests. I also really liked the idea of being in a class with a group of 12-20 people max and having access to faculty pretty much anytime. But I'm sure you'll do great at UoT they have a really great program there! Best of luck and feel free to stay in touch I will start doing some math at some point this summer and I'll be close to Toronto.

    I think you made the right call man, developing those kinds of intimate relationships are what really set you apart.

    In all honesty I was ignorant that Western had an MA program in Econ since all I've ever seen talked about was UofT or UBC. If I could do it all over again I would've applied to both Queens and Western, but it's best not to dwell on the past.

    I'll be doing some math and metrics review in Toronto with someone else in the UofT MA program, you're more than welcome to join. If it isn't against Urch's rules then I'd be open to exchanging numbers via a PM. let me know what you think.

    I have still not heard from Toronto. Anyone in the same boat? I even emailed to Professor Damiano but did not receive any response? What should I get from that?
