  2. Rosi is up and running!
  3. Grades in the last two years: 2 A+, 2 A-, 2 A, B+, B . I got an A- in research methods and an A in statistics. I did not do an honours thesis but happened to get amazing research experience over the past 5 years (graduated with a degree in Criminology with focus in Psychology). 1000 hours working doing research on mental health in the government. 3000 hours as a full time addictions counsellor at a residential youth treatment facility. 800 hours working on a research project at the same residential facility. 160 hours worth of volunteer - fundraising for treatment centre, support worker for women in the process of going through the court system and I facilitated an art program for youth I hope this helps! Any questions, let me know! Sending positive vibes your way
  4. No way!!! I got into Toronto for the 2 year program too! So pumped!! Last name starts with M Good luck everyone
  5. Fingers and toes crossed that we will find out next week then!
  6. pics or it didn't happen
  7. Really?!? I feel the opposite. I feel like the site is down and my admission status has already been changed but I just can't see it hahahaha
  8. Noooooooooooooooooooooooo
  9. You log into SGS and under application summary, you will find your student number. You then go to the rosi website and put in your student number. the password is your birthday YYMMDD Hope this helps!!
  10. I remember reading somewhere that we will be notified via email! Probably for the best so we don't refresh the same page over and over again hahah
  11. Preach! I needed to read this. Heads up that they also sent out rejection letters for Carleton 2 year program. I got my email yesterday saying I was unsuccessful. I'm disappointed but trying not to let it get me down. I plan on eating some Ben and Jerry's today (maybe the whole jar?) #selfcare
  12. I think the Mental Health stream might be the most competitive at U of T based on past forum creeping lol
  13. Thanks Roxxx! I am waiting to hear back from Carleton, U of T and Laurier for the 2 year program. I have been working as an addiction counsellor for three years. I also have research experience with the government on mental health programs for police officers. I have a few volunteer roles too. I am hoping to stay local and get into Carleton. Fingers crossed. I know last year everyone found out on February 11th for both advanced standing and 2 year programs so it should be any day now. I know that Carleton got hacked in December so that may slow things down a bit. Only time will tell !
  14. Wondering if anyone has heard from Carleton yet? I applied for the two year program and they typically let people know around mid to late February based on what I have read in the forums from 2016/2015. I know it's not mid Feb just yet but I'm curious!
