Hey all I was just wondering if anyone here applied for McMaster's MSc in Global Health for Sep 2020? I was wondering if anyone heard any update with regards to when admissions are going to be out with the current situation!

 

Thanks

Hey! 

Has anyone heard anything about their Global Health Application yet? 

Thanks! 

I haven't yet! A friend who got in last year said she heard back mid-late April... so any day now I guess?!

I read somewhere that International applicants will hear back in mid April, while Canadian applicants will hear back in mid May!

It's pretty unpredictable given I got my acceptance as a Canadian on April 22nd last year. However, this year, the adcoms are extremely busy because the India symposium (requirement for the degree) had to be moved online and it's a very very hectic time for the faculty. 

Best of luck,

Hey! What do you think made your application stand out to adcoms? Also how big is your class size this year, and what do you plan to do with your MSc degree after graduating?

Nope! not that i am aware of. And i know right?! I hope this does not lead into May as well.. 

I think Canadian students may receive results later than international students due to visa applications. I read somewhere that the result will be in May.

I've applied as well! I'm a Canadian and I emailed them a while back asking if decisions would be delayed due to COVID-19 but they said I should still know by mid-May. So far I've heard of two Canadians who have heard back (I don't know them personally). I believe one was accepted and one was rejected (not sure if the one rejected was actually rejected or put on the waitlist). To my knowledge both of them also applied to Med so my best guess is that they're trying to give decisions to people who applied to multiple programs first to give them time to decide which program they want.

Oh wow, that is interesting. I didn't know that some Canadian applicants have heard back already.
