Re: Do you have an opinion? Debate Battle 1: Wikileaks

Re: Canadian JPA Scholars

That would be me. Don't worry I am not declaring it as a major concentration but will go for the honours courses. With 400/500 level classes mandatory, it doesn't suck that much. But won't stay for...

Re: I wonder why JPA doesn't send many students to canada

Your statistics is completely skewed. For the batch of Canada-bound scholars for Fall 2010, there are 129 scholars sponsored by JPA. If you compile your statistics from Recom's database, then you...

Hi, I am graduating on the 18th and our cohort will be flying off come August (yes, cohort, we're not really nice people ;P). So I believe I am in a position to answer some of your questions.

Re: JPA PILN & PIDN 2010 RESULT [Discussion Thread]

Re: JPA Scholarship 2010 - PIDN & PILN

It depends on what country you are assigned to. If you are to be sent to Australia/NZ, it's probably AUSMAT for Pre-U. If they decide to send you to Canada, it will be a little bit more...

Re: JPA Scholarship 2010 - PIDN & PILN

To be frank, unlikely. You need to have the equivalent of A2 in History, BM and Moral. Still, there is no harm trying and hopefully they could see that your stellar grades more than compensate your...

Re: JPA Scholarship 2010 - PIDN & PILN
