I'm so sorry to hear that. What do you think was the reason ?


I can't put my finger on the exact reason. But probably the low GPA was the deciding factor.


Did you get an interview sandeepvijay?
I think you should try and get a feedback, so that it is helpful for you in the future.
All the best for the rest of your applications!

Hey daman8

I have already replied in this link to someone before.
From my experience of the Alberta page in the forum in the past 2 years,
if your application has been forwarded to FGSR, it is as good as getting an admit!

What percentage of those invited for first round interview make it to the next round? Can anyone answer this? I got an invite recently and I am quite nervous.

While the first Kira video interview is offered to almost all applicants with minimum requirements, congrats for getting one nonetheless. Unless someone from AdCom chimes in, it is impossible to know the percentage who get the second interview from the first Kira interviews (and I wouldn't worry about that statistic). I would urge you to not be nervous at all and just be as honest as you can and be yourself. Both the Kira and the 2nd interviews are behavioral in nature and there is no "right" or "wrong" answer. It's all about how you package your response and sell your idea(s) to the interviewer. The more genuine you are, the more confident you look and sound, and the more attractive you are as a potential candidate.

To those who received admit decisions late last year and earlier this year and applying for Visas, any complications with your visa applications?

Any new admits on the forum. Please share your stories, a small detail might help someone stressing about it out there.

Hi, thanks!

No entrance awards were mentioned in the offer, and yes, the offer was conditional on submission of original transcripts.

Did anyone receive an entrance award with the acceptance mail?

I got an offer as well last week, conditional upon receipt of my original transcripts from my previous school. It had no entrance award offered. However I contacted the admissions team and I was to told stay tuned as the office is still sorting out specific details on entrance awards.

SarishmaChoudary, are you taking up the offer at UAlberta?

I believe there is a WhatsApp group(which has been created for Alberta)
So if you want to get added in the group, please send me your number!
I happen to know somebody who is part of the group!

Hope they might be able to offer the support you need with regards to the VISA!
