Canadian Graduate Students and Hopefuls

Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
This is a community for Canadian graduate students and hopefuls. If you are a Canadian student (interested in) attending grad school in Canada or elsewhere, this is the place for you; if you are a student from elsewhere (interested in) attending grad school in Canada, this is the place for you.

Graduate school is loosely defined, but generally means programs that lead to an MA, MSc, or PhD. Ok, fine, I also mean those leading to an MLA - though just barely - and those that lead to more rarely seen degrees like MDiv, PEng, MEd, PsyD, MLitt, MPhil, EdD, etc.

Graduate school does not mean post-graduate certificate and/or diploma programs. Those are for people who want jobs with an otherwise generally unmarketable set of skills. :P

Graduate school also specifically excludes those who have completed a BA and are moving on to teacher's college to pursue a BEd. Those (hopefully) pursuing an MEd or EdD are welcome.

If you are looking for more general grad school communities, hopefuls may want to check out applyingtograd, current grad students may want to check out gradstudents.

For a more general Canadian university community, check out canadau.

Two rules:

1. Learn to use LJ cuts.

If you have enough text to fill the entry box and the sroll bar appears on the right hand side, it should go behind a cut. I will ask you nicely to put in a cut, and if you don't do it, I will delete your entry. I wish I could just edit and add the cut, but I can't.

All content that is not work-safe should be behind a cut which clearly indicates that the item is not work-safe. Should you post content that is not work-safe without making use of a cut, I will delete it without warning.

Be nice to poor grad students with free dial-up from their universities. If you post a large image, defined as anything bigger than 100 X 100 pixels, it should go behind a cut.

2. Play nice. Don't make me ***BANZZZZOR!*** anybody.

This community is moderated by the benevolent dictator rexlezard. What I say goes, but I'm pretty tolerant, so most of you don't need to worry.
