  1. I literally just gave up my spot at Dal the other day so... it's not too late. I was having some issues with acceptance from Alberta (worried about foreign transcripts) so I held on to it until I was sure it wouldn't be a problem at UofA. So someone should have got a spot at Dal
  2. Hey, just out of curiosity, what day did you accept? Because I accepted a while ago and still it says 'pending'. I don't want to give up my spot in Dal until I get the official acceptance or something...
  3. I could be wrong about some of these, and I don't know some. Maybe the others could fill them in for me. UBC 36 Alberta 57 students admitted to the MScSLP (course-based) program McGill accepting only 27 students per year (accept about 10% of applicants) Toronto approximately 50 students to the MHSc program for the 2017-2018 academic year. McMaster 28 Western ?? Dal I was told there are about 23-24 in the year of someone I was talking to. That could be less than they accepted if someone dropped out or whatever.
  4. I think I need some friends to create a group... if you're going to Alberta, PM me your facebook pages so I can add you
  5. Do we have a facebook page for the people going to UofA?
  6. All of you who have been accepted to a few schools so far... I noticed some of you seem really confident in your choice but is there anyone who's stressing about which school to choose? Before I was just so desperate to get accepted anywhere but now the deadlines will be coming up soon and I don't know what to do. I've talked to students in both programs now, but still I'm not sure. Do we have a Canadian SLP thread for after you're accepted? Like how to choose a school, how to prepare to move, things like applying for scholarships and loans, etc.? If not, does someone want to start a thread? I'm useless at forums. It'd be nice to get to know some people going to the same programs. I know they have facebook pages sometimes and stuff but...
  7. I've been accepted to Alberta too! I'm so happy!!!
  8. Congrats to those of you who got into McGill I just checked the portal and I've been rejected. That's okay though, I guess. I'd like to have options to choose from but so long as I have one acceptance I'll make do! Now we just get to wait until April 1st... I wonder if they realize that it's a Saturday? Does that matter? I still haven't heard anything from Toronto at all so.. I don't have a log in portal for there or anything.
  9. AHHH CONGRATS! *stares at phone anxiously*
  10. Also, while we wait: What are your top choices and why? I honestly just hoped to receive a single acceptance and figured if I got more than one I would just deal with it if it happened. But since the dates to accept are so close, I'd like to hear everyone's reasons for their top choice. Everyone who gradutes from a school says "oh yeah it was a great program!" but they can't really compare, can they? I've heard that about pretty much every school. For me in Sask, I don't have the choice to choose the one closest to home as I'll have to move to a different province regardless. How do you know which school to choose without spending hundreds of dollars flying around to go look at the schools? not to mention there are things like living situations to consider... Toronto can be so expensive to rent an apartment so... I wasn't sure if I'd like to live there....
  11. Holy crap! That's a huge class! I had no idea Toronto had so many to begin with. I thought Alberta had the most. But that means more spots for us! And don't give up yet. Slpslpslpslp said she called today and they told her they'd start calling tomorrow, so maybe they just started to get around to it today earlier than they thought! If I remember correctly, last year McGill called over a few days. I remember how dejected people were the next day after the first day of calls but then they got in.
  12. I'm just curious, and since we're all waiting anxiously anyway maybe it'll be a distraction but.. Has anyone seen a compilation of information about how many seats are available for each Canadian school and how many applicants they had in previous years? The only thing like that I've seen was way back from like 2008...
  13. I got an email from Dal. It had a letter attached.
  14. I just received an acceptance from Dalhousie!!! It's conditional though, that I finish my degree with a GPA of 3.3. I'm not sure how that will work though, because I graduated ages ago with a very low average and have only since taken courses in the last two years but will not have another degree... Not sure if that will matter. Anyway AHHHHHHHHHH Those of you who applied to Dal should get your emails soon!
  15. I checked again today with Dal and they said they still haven't received the second set of scores I sent They were sent more than 3 weeks ago again... They said they would work off of my unofficial scores for now but part of me wonders if it isn't just that they have already rejected me so they know they don't need the scores... TT___TT ahh I'm a mess of anxiety. How am I going to write my midterms this week?? haha I can't stop checking my phone every ten minutes.
