How do you know if your application has safely arrived at the admission office?

Are they supposed to email us once they've received our application? I mailed mine off by December 1, but haven't gotten an email back.

Yes, you should have recieved an e-mail confirming that Queen's got your application. They've been updating their online system for a while now so responses were a bit slow, but I think everyone should have recieved their confirmations by now (I got mine a week before Christmas). There are a few possible scenarios:

1) your application simply didn't get there on time, which would be a shame
2) they're just slow at processing it (especially if you hadn't applied through OUAC yet so you couldn't put your OUAC number on the application)
3) the e-mail is in your junk mail folder
4) you accidentally put the wrong e-mail address on your application

If you log in to the MyQueen's portal, you can view the status of your application. I suggest you check there (click on Student/HR - Student Services once you log in, then "View Award Application Status"). Make sure to disable your pop-up blocker.

If all else fails, fire off an e-mail to Queen's and ask what the deal is!

There is always the option of e-mailing the awards/admissions office to ask when they will be releasing that information. That's what they did last year to find out ahead of time. I know on the website it tells you to check back in March 2011 for more information though, and I don't know if that's regarding award status or all the other options.

Knowing when would make me all the more anxious though. Based on last year's statistics, there's approximately a 1/13 chance of winning, and oh, am I ever counting down the days...

You could e-mail them and ask how many applied and when the results are (and then post them here, of course ;D). I would imagine the numbers would stay relatively close to that of last year because of the limit that they put on people who can apply for the Chancellor's Award. I think last year in total it was 860 for the 73 awards, and around 500 for the 50 Chancellor's.

Haha wow, I was about to say that exact thing! I don't know where I read it, but the total number was around 850 for all the awards, like you said. Does that mean last year everyone had a 1 in 10 chance of getting the Chancellor's scholarship??!! Obviously the quality of your application makes a difference, but to me those chances seem pretty high!

Jessicaw, my To-Do List only asks for IB Predicted Grades.

Anyone have any updates on the exact date when winners will be announced? Also, when does Queen's start sending out early offers of admission?

I sincerely hope that it is not late February. I hope they aren't slower because of their new system.

It depends on the program. I know a couple of their lesser-competitive programs start sending out early offers of admission in December. The earlier ones are likely to be late February. March is my guess, because that's the last due date for the PSE.

Last year the Chancellor's applicants knew they would be informed on February 5th. Wondering how they knew that? Also, does anyone know how the award recipients were informed, email? regular mail?

I wonder if they are going to wait to announce the winners until they have our final marks for semester one? They couldn't have done so last year if they announced the winners February 5th. Will all of the Chancellor's nominees find out if they have been accepted or not to Queen's on that day too?

I think I read somewhere that no Chancellor's nominee has ever been denied acceptance to Queen's in the past. So I guess we could assume that the nominees have already been accepted! Woohoo! :cheers:
