    Wow, you applied pretty widely! Makes me slightly nervous for my strategy of applying to only 4 schools, 3 of which are top-tier.

    Anyone have any insight into when offers start coming out? I know that a lot of programs are just closing their admissions now.

    Hey aascd, as Zubrus mentioned it is usually a bit later than now.

    I know for the MFE program at U of T they have explicitly stated that 1st round offers will be sent out the 3rd week of Feb. Western's MA has stated they aim for 3rd or 4th week of Feb. UBC and other schools seem to state a similar timeline or a bit later. So i'd say the sweetspot is probably the last 2 weeks of Feb and the first 2 weeks of March for most schools.

    Until then just kick back and try to keep your mind off it haha. To help I've picked up a lot of additional little hobbies to kill time throughout the day!

    Hi I applied for Toronto's, UBC and Simon fraser's PhD programs but now I think my GRE is quite low to get into any of these. I have 164 in verbal but only 161 in quantitative. Anyone has heard of anyone with a low quant score getting in?

    That depends on the rest of your profile but 161 is certainly not great.

    Question on UBC... I noticed their website says GRE scores should be from the last 2 years. The standard everywhere else is 5 years, and mine come in at about 2.5 years old. Anyone with info on whether they'll care?

    First round offers will be end of Feb to mid March. Second round offers will be around April or May.

    Update: Notified via email that I made Westerns MFE shortlist. Conducting an admin interview next week. Hoping for an offer, this would be my top choice.
