    Re: Admissions and Rejections 2018

    Not PhD programs but I hope this is still welcome

    Institution:
    Wilfred Laurier University (Canada)
    Program: MA in Business Economics
    Decision: Admitted to the program, could have Co-Op position as well conditional on a pending interview
    Funding: 10.5k TAship, 7.5k given as a scholarship
    Date: 1/26/2018
    notified through: Email
    Comments: Seems really early considering most Canadian schools haven't even passed their app deadline. I am still going to be waiting to hear from UBC, Western, U of T (MFE), Guelph, Waterloo, and Queens. Nonetheless receiving this email was a nice way to start my weekend.
