  1. I JUST GOT ACCEPTED TO BOSTON COLLEGE! I'm crying so hard. I'm so thankful and in disbelief, I've been shaking since I got the email. I'll be emailing shortly to take myself off of the UConn waitlist and I hope this helps someone else out. Thank you all so much for your kind words and support through this whole process. It's especially wonderful because yesterday marked one year since my dad passed away, and I can't help but feel he's looking out for me.

  2. Just to paint a picture of what’s happening (also to feel less alone haha) could everyone who hasn’t heard from U of T yet like this post?

  3. Hi everyone! This is super late because I wanted to wait until I got my official notice. School: OISE Type: CCP Acceptance/Waitlist/Rejection: Acceptance Type of Notification: Email to check portal Date Notified: Unofficial notice from POI on March 24 and official acceptance email April 8 DM for POI: Yes! Just for some perspective, this is not my first time applying. I ended up doing a totally different Master's in between and learned so much. This time around, I only applied to this one program because it was the research I'm passionate about and I'm super

  4. I got into UT Austin off their waitlist! Heard from them this morning (IR). I am DELIGHTED! And I will be accepting the offer I have also contacted Rice to ask them to take my name off their waitlist, so hopefully it might help someone there

    Thank you!

    Thanks everyone for another season on this forum! I'm proud to be associated with you all (even if we're anonymous) and grateful that we are such a good community! The main application thread had, as you can see, well above 500k views since November, which is really quite mind-blowing to me. To those of you who will be reapply next year, I'll be back then and look forward to reconnect. I'll sign in from time to time and please feel free to reach out if there is anything I can do, help with, or give you advise on. I certainly do not know everything but I do know some things and would

  7. Finally finally FINALLY received my first offer of admission to the University of Maryland Environmental Health PhD program!!! However, it's unfunded for my first year so I'll be carrying a small stipend from one of my prior mentors and likely commuting from home to save rental costs. It's a dream program due to mentorship, connections, and projects so I don't want to turn it down! For those still waiting, it ain't over til it's over

  9. I got taken off the waitlist on JHU, the only school I applied in this cycle. Feel so blessed!! Thank you, Everyone, for your support and sharing in the tough waiting time. This is a great community. I would never be able to survive in the process without this forum. Wish those still on waitlists the best luck! For JHU folks, I would like to connect with you guys offline ~~

  10. This might sound stupid, but to test my theory, could whoever applied to U of T like this comment? I know that there are probably some people who applied to U of T that aren't on here but this might just give us a ballpark?

  14. Hello everyone! I've been reading the threads for a few years now but I just saw this post and wanted to create an account and share my experience! I applied to both McMaster and Western last year with a 3.75 GPA, 150+ hours of volunteer with SLPs, and lots of volunteer experience with CDAs, OTs and with the Brain Injury Association. I had a B in my anatomy prerequisite, but the rest were all A/A+s. I didn't get an interview with McMaster and I got waitlisted at Western (3rd quadrant). I emailed Janet to ask how to improve my application and she said to think about upgrading my anat

  15. Hi everyone! Just wanted to share that I got accepted into UBC a couple weeks ago! I lost all hope when I got rejected from Western on April 1st but this just goes to show -- KEEP YOUR HEAD UP! It took me 3 tries!!! If it doesn't work out for you this year, KEEP GOING! DON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! DON'T STOP UNTIL YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT! THIS IS YOUR DREAM! YOU CAN DO THIS! If you don't believe me, here's my post from the 2020 SLP Canadian thread (TLDR; me giving up, me debating whether or not SLP was for me anymore, sad me): "Hi everyone, discouraged applicant here; any a

  18. I know some of you aren’t ready to hear this because I sure as hell wasn’t when I got rejected - but what is going to make us amazing counselors is who we are and our experiences not some piece of paper or where we get that piece of paper. Some of the most amazing counselors I have had got online degrees from places I hadn’t heard of and some of the worst counselors I’ve had went to prestigious schools. Let’s not let some academic/educational system define who we are and tell us what we can and can’t do. All of us here have the same goals - we want to help people and make a difference and if w

  20. Just been accepted to the GW PhD program in Global Public Health Sciences! After a stream of rejection mails, this is the first acceptance letter and I'm tearing up 😭 I was really prepared for the worst, as this is my second cycle of applying. I really couldn't believe at first though how I'd been rejected or waitlisted by so many schools I applied.. but to those who are still in the waiting game, don't give up yet. I got my interview request in mid March and nearly gave up as I knew the funded positions were highly competitive (they said they are taking only two students) - but you never know

  21. I didn't since this thread hasn't been about stats at all like in previous years. That was what someone else posted and I also agreed with him. I'm thinking that when all is said and done I'll probably have a final post with my stats, the programs I applied to and what I ultimately accepted. I think that my be more helpful if people sum up their experiences towards the end of the thread. It seems like your a bit negative with most of your posts? Not trying to start a war, but what are you trying to say masters degrees are easy? So no one should get one? Most of us are trying to get the M

  22. Hi all I just wanted to take a minute to express gratitude to those on this thread as you have all helped me and eased anxiety during this admissions period! I think all of us should be extremely proud of ourselves and all of our accomplishments up to this point are extremely impressive and I am sure whatever graduate program we choose we will continue to do impressive and amazing things. People do not go into social work for the money neccessarily, so it really goes to show how much we all value education and bettering ourselves to continue to serve our communities. I know social work can be

  23. Hi everyone! There should be some movement for Western, McMaster, and McGill as I've declined those offers, as well as I've asked to have myself removed from Dalhousie's waitlist. I'll be attending UAlberta in the fall. Congrats to those accepted, and best of luck to those of you waiting to hear back!

  29. As we're heading into the last phase of this process, a couple of advices based on reading last year's thread (Maybe someone who applied last year can also comment): 1- The process of sending emails and results in the extranet system is slow and is not at the same time for everyone, just wait a bit and you'll get it. 2- The results appear in a random order (at least last year). They don't seem to follow an alphabetical order, committee order, or even award result (Successful or not). It's just random. Not worth it to have the mini-heart attack and develop all the theories on the order

    So re this I thought a lot of you would find it interesting on how they roll out the admissions processes.. I talked to the co-director for a different program at U of T (MHSc in clinical physiology) who also used to be my prof and from talking to her and going to the DLSPH open house in 2018 here's how I assume they do their admissions for DLSPH at the very least, if not for other graduate schools/programs as well. Round 1: After reviewing everyone's files they send out initial rejectiioins. These are people who did not meet the "unspecified" cut off. As someone said earlie

  36. This whole post comes across as just another form of proselytizing. I am truly sorry that academia disappointed you as it will many others, but please consider that the people here are intelligent enough to question these issues without needing to watch someone sell their brand in a TED talk.

  39. Hi everyone! I was losing all hope for this year, but I ended up receiving an offer from McGill's Counselling Psychology (Internship) program! I am incredibly grateful (and surprised!) that everything worked out, especially given how stressful and hectic this application cycle was with the pandemic. I'd love to chat with any other students on this thread who are attending McGill's program this fall! Feel free to PM me if you'd like to connect. 🙂 Best of luck to those of you who are still waiting to hear back from schools!

  47. hey guys, trying to say goodbye to this forum here. I didn't really post but I have been peeking this forum since mid February and occasionally received anxiety as well as comforts. Man, it's been a long journey, isn't it? This is my second time applying and might be my last try. My only two goals are Bard and Yale. Last year, I got the interview at Bard and straight rejection at Yale. It was right before the pandemic when you could still meet people in the real world. I made some friends who are still in contact even today. I was very lucky to meet a milestone in my art career in 2

  48. I know that we're near the end and very close to being disbanded but ya'll I just have to say it: THANK YOU! You all have been a tremendous source of support and strength and I cannot say enough how meaningful it's been to connect with many of you offline, in real life (zoom), etc. I didn't think I'd find a community of people who in the face of a pandemic, national unrest, etc., were like "you know what? F*ck it, let's apply"--but I'm so very happy I did. So cheers, you brilliant crazies! Now let's go leave our imprint on this field. 🍾🥂

  49. Good luck to everyone making last-minute decision before the April 15th deadline! I know it is stressful to make such a life-altering decision and it is easy to be overwhelmed. Just remember that it is impossible to predict the future (even when you have a PhD in statistics!) and all you can do is inform yourself as best you can and follow your gut!

  50. I totally understand the anxiety and impatience, but blaming the staff for not working overtime isn't fair. For all we know, they already are. We should all know, understand, and respect the importance of having boundaries between home and work-- not to mention the ways that staff in academic settings are already often overworked and underpaid. They're people going through a pandemic, too.
