Strange refusals, returned applications, frustrated students and institutions – the strike of Canada’s foreign diplomats made the summer ’13 a very memorable one, unfortunately. We’d like to hear your experiences. Write to us.
“Overseas, Overwhelmed” reports knowledge of higher refusal rates in some markets than previous, and seemingly a result of applications being refused on flimsy grounds. Typical cases were students who seemed perfectly prepared and fit into a graduate and post-graduate programs being refused for not following in a reasonable academic path.
Perhaps it was the backlog and high volumes ?
It may have been a result of unhappy employees ?
Another theory is simply to push through most applications and in doing so, many were summarily refused.
Vis-a-vis Visas would like to hear from readers and the experiences of specific students and their files. You may comment as a blog posting here, or write to us at:
