True, it is tough for an international student to break into top-2 Canadian.. I am a Canadian PR ( domestic) .. I might have a shot at top-2 Canadian ?
If I can add one word of caution, in my experience PhD admissions committeess tend to downweight students with as many years of work experience as you tend to have. Of course, not all universities do, but many in the top 10-20 appear to do so,
This is what I wrote on their original post:
Note that this individual does not indicate that he/she is a faculty member, which he/she probably isn't. And if they were, they are not worth working for if they don't even have the RA funds to pay the person.
This person is looking to exploit individuals for free labor, and probably is useless in the application process because their letter will not be worth a thing, and given what they can offer, is clearly a nobody. Don't waste your time or energy. Unless the person is a Nobel prize winner, working free is not worth it. Shame on this person. Can't believe they wrote "You must have solid GPA, GRE (or planning to sit) and have good excel/eviews/stata/R skills, excellent writing skills and be humble." and then offer no monetary compensation.
