Congratulations to you!

I still haven' heard back, so my chances are clearly very slim now. Was feeling discouraged leading up to this day, but now I'm feeling hopeless, really.

Congrats to everyone else accepted, good luck to the waitlisters (I've been there twice - it's the worst), and good luck next year to everyone else! I've had a lot of disappointments, but today cancelled out ALL of that. Keep at it if you really want it, and you'll get in!

Awesome, congratulations!  I also have a PhD and will be applying to MUN this coming September (although I am OOP) -- I would be interested to hear what you think about the interview process and if your age/experience seemed to really help you -- this is a great example of how MUN is so holistic in their selection process!
