A UofT student called my house a while ago but I wasn't able to answer since I wasn't home. Anyone else get a phone call? What do you think the phone call meant?

Yo Guys,

Unlike you I was at home at that moment, indeed he asked me about my extracurricular activaties and whether I have some further queries abt the program. He ended the call with this : A DECISION WILL BE MADE SOON :)

That's all

I got a call as well... It was a first year student, and she just asked me if I had any questions.

Wonder what is the purpose of the call?

1) To verify your SPF that the administrator has questions, but they should put it in an email or on the application portal for an official documentation

2) Make sure you are providing correct contact or you're there at the phone

It seems to me that the call has nothing to do with the admission criteria and assessment.

Calm down guys. The call was just part of recruiting for the University. First year students are paid/volunteer to call applicants to school and answer any questions as applicants tend to feel more comfortable talking to them versus an official.

Yea I got the same call, it was a student from second year studying the same program I applied for (ECE). So I just asked a few questions, but it was really random and I felt like I had more questions to ask so they gave me a number to call back if I had more questions. 416 978 3872

Do you guys get admitted after the call from U of T Eng student?

My cousin (applied for engsci with 90+ average, his math final mark was 100, for god sack, how could it be possible? ) and his classmate (applied for industrial with 75+ average), both are out of province, also received call from UT Eng Student last Sunday? But they didn't get accepted yet.
