Super tough competition this year. Even Carleton, Ryerson, York and Western are strangely selective for their incoming students this year. I hope you've applied somewhere else too...

Saw only one in the gradcafe results section...Don't know about Yocket though...

You must be checking for CS only. Saw a total of five rejects for ECE since yesterday (grad+yocket).

Aah cool. I usually don't count those since different departments have different review processes. So them sending decisions may not have anything to do with CS.

Don't worry, they are still reviewing the applications. Both of these universities have sent out some initial rounds of rejection s, so if you haven't heard back from them, it's probably a good sign.

I'm on the same boat.

I too have applied for the MEng Mechanical program in Alberta. Same status is being shown. Well the last date of submitting the application is yet to pass. We have to wait very patiently.

Once you receive an admit, then only they'll ask for the original transcript that has to be sent directly from your undergrad university.

I'm on the same boat.

Ask the coordinator to change it to In Review. I applied for two programs at Mcgill, Course Based showed In Review (for 2 months) for which I got a reject. For another (Thesis) it is still being shown submitted (which I doubt they are considering it - as I don't have backing from any prof).
Note: When the application is In Review, you can't re-upload documents.

Since you have applied for thesis, are you in contact with any prof at Mcgill or UBC?

My status at McGill still shows "Submitted" for MSc CS Thesis, and so does everyone else's who I've talked with. There were a couple of rejects on 31st March and most people had "Submitted" as their status before they were rejected. I think they just didn't change the status to "In Review" for random reasons, and it shouldn't be taken as an indicator of success or failure.

Yup I agree... @trane293
@Mewtwo.. even I applied fr 2 progs-course & thesis based. Got rejected in course based prog.
Moreover.. prof from UBC was interested in my profile. He told he would review my application and call for a skype interview. Its been more than 2 months and not heard back from him. As far as McGill, I emailed around 6 Profs but no replies...
Tough Luck or too many appliz to evaluate this time... its gonna be difficult to get in I guess Neutral

Your conviction gives me faith. Thank you for sharing that.

@Mayura11 I had the very same experience with profs. Wish I could personally meet them at their office to make things clear.
