  1. Hi All, Everyone who is joining western university computer science can gather here to discuss. Thanks!
  2. Hey, I am wondering who else has applied to the MT program at OISE! What concentration did you apply for, what teachable(s), and what did your application look like? I applied to intermediate/senior for biology & social science. I had volunteer experience in a high school and ~4.0 GPA average in my last two years.
  3. This might sound like a really stupid question, but I don't know when the deadline to accept my UWO offer is. There is nothing about this on the departmental website OR on the graduate admissions website as far as I can tell. I emailed the grad admissions office, who told me to contact my department about the deadlines. The department contact person in turn told me that I can find all the information in the admission letter. But the deadline is not there! I checked the letter three times now: all it says in terms of dates is I need to complete any outstanding requirements (i.e. send official transcripts) a month before commencing my studies and get a study permit. I am a little afraid I'll annoy the program coordinator if I email them again. I also don't want to just poke around on the portal because the system UWO uses is not the most user-friendly, what if I accidentally reply to my offer before I am ready? So what do I do now? Wait a while before asking again? The programs I have not heard from yet release the decisions very late, in early May, so I really need to know if I can wait this long before deciding. Western folk out there, when was/is your deadline to accept? Is it universal across the university? I am not sure: is April 15th a thing in Canada? Does it matter if your offer is funded/unfunded?
  4. Hey guys, I was wondering about who has applied to bachelor of education or teaching programs in Ontario! I have some questions: Which schools have you applied to? For what age concentration? What are your teachables? What was your GPA? What relevant experience did you have? I've applied to OISE, UOIT, and York for intermediate/senior. My teachables are biology & social science. I had a ~4.0 GPA in my last 2 years. I worked in a local high school for the past 2 years.
  5. Hi there, I want to apply for Clinical Psychology at various schools across Ontario for this coming fall. I attended McGill University in undergrad majoring in Psychology, and did not obtain a high GPA (3.23). I have had over a year of experience working as Research Analyst and Assistant at Sunnybrook, contributed to a publication, and have had one of my own independent research projects published in the Journal of Psychiatry. I have certifications in both CBT and Talk Therapy. Right now I have taken an additional 10 undergraduate courses at Ryerson to improve my GPA, which is now at a 4.0. I wondered if anyone could provide me with any advice on how I can proceed further, or the likelihood of my acceptance given my initial undergraduate GPA. Thank you so much!
  6. The wait is over and I have officially accepted my offer to begin a Master of Media in Journalism and Communication at the University of Western Ontario this Fall 2016! As I am just finishing up my undergrad at UBC and planning to spend the summer working in Vancouver before making the move, I'm now facing the task of trying to find housing in London, Ontario for September. If any other grad students at Western are also seeking housing or looking for a female roommate, let me know and we can team up preferably looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom place close to campus with other grad students or young professionals.
  7. Hi guys! I got accepted to a couple of journalism grad programs in Canada and I'm torn which one to choose. So, I desperately need input and advice to put things in perspective and hopefully, make a logical decision that I won't regret. Anyway, I got in to the Master of Journalism program in UBC, Western, Ryerson, and Carleton. What are the pros and cons of each program? Which one is better? Should I attend the one that offers me the most funding or choose the one I really want to attend? Feel free to response! I'm just desperate as deadlines to accept/decline offers are coming up. Thanks!
