I have applied to one of the top engineering school in Canada: UoT, University of British Columbia & UWaterloo.
I've interviewed a professor and he sent me his most recent research publications after the email. I asked a few prospects of the future project he wants me to work on and he even encouraged me that we can think of using a methodology (that I previously worked on) in his future project.
He's told me he's reviewing all the people who opted for his research supervision. More info in this thread 1.
So, what kind of chances are there for getting a Master's assitantship based on the professor's response? Do all professors have this enthusiasm while discussing with prospective students?
I apologise for this very specific question but anxiety kicks in during the admission process :)
