    Congratulations, good first step. In person or phone interview? What other programs did you apply for?

    Other than UoT (who only accept 2 international), are other Canadian universities biased towards cancadians? I'm looking at UBC, Queen's, UWO and McGill.

    Does UoT accept only two internationals?

    on their website


    1. How many applications do you receive?For our PhD program, we receive around 70 applications from domestic students and 150 applications from international students. Each year, we admit around 15 domestic students and 2 international students.

    Re: Canadian Application Sweat Thread

    Wow, Wisconsin-Madison gets like 500 applications while UofT only gets 220? I guess people know about this bias.

    15 admitted from 70 Canadian applicants really bites them in the ***. I knew some lackluster people who got off the waitlist cause they ran short on applicants and their first offers got rejected. Those dudes dropped out after the first year, total waste. They've had rather impressive placements in recent years though.

    I've been told Queens favors people with Canadian degrees. UBC seems to have a decent amount of international students in their PhD program, not so many in their MA.
