I finally made my intentions clear that I have decided not to do my Masters at Dalhousie University. I am currently courting and being courted by several west coast universities so I am desperately trying to decide where would be most suitable for me to go. University of Victoria is currently my first choice, but I am starting to think about what kind of focus I would like to put on my research — more HCI or more software engineering.
The University of British Columbia is an option, but not that high on my list anymore. I might be in touch with University of Alberta and the University of Waterloo for software engineering.
