  1. Hello All, I am considering applying to McGill. I see that a statistics course is required. I have not taken an explicit stats course, however I have taken many research methods courses - one in my undergrad and in my BSW. I am wondering if those might count toward that requirement? Is anyone applying to Dal of Memorial for MSW? Thanks!
  2. Hi there, Just wanted to put my 2 cents in about the Physiology & Anatomy courses. I took Anat at Dal through distance and it was amazing. Got an A overall and I probably could have got an A+ if I had put a little more time into it. I do not have a strong science background so I was worried, but I really enjoyed this course. There were lectures for ever chapter, an option for an online or paper text book and the online book had links on each page with videos to explain concepts. The assignments and lab questions were easy to understand as long as you read your material. Plus they were
  3. Just got accepted to the Dalhousie BSW! Still waiting on hearing back about Occupational Therapy and then I'll make my decision. Anyone else doing a BSW at Dal?
  4. Just got my rejection letter from Dalhousie and it was my second time applying. I am not surprised, but it still hurts, espically since I worked my butt off to raise my GPA and make my application more competative Oh well, such is life! I have also applied to some other amazing grad programs - OT and Social Work (which I think a few of us on this forum have done), so I have some great alternative plans! I am SO happy for everyone that got into their dream school and I have my fingers crossed for those of you still waiting and on wait lists! I hope I get to work with some of you in the fut
  5. What are relief to get some news about timelines for Dal! Even thought it sounds like it still might be a while before we know our statuses. Thanks to everyone who gave input and congrats to those who have already been accepted. I have yet to receive anything form Dal yet. I am hoping that is a good thing and that those of us still waiting will make the next round!! I haven't heard of anyone getting any rejections or wait list letters form Dal yet.
  6. Yay!! I am so happy. I have been following your posts throughout this process and I have to say you are a true inspiration and are going to make an amazing SLP!
  7. Congrats to everyone who got into Western early this morning! What a thrill all of this is. I am hoping to hear from Dal soon. It's April, so they should be telling us soon right? Right?! Gah
  8. Yay! Congrats to DeafAudi and CleverUsername. So excited for you!
  9. Nope, still waiting on Dal too. Hopefully we'll hear something this week or next!
  10. Hey, so I know there are a couple of us on this thread who are also waiting to hear back about BSW apps at Dalhousie. Do any of you know when people heard back in previous years? I am pretty sure that MSW Dalhousie applicants have already been contracted, but it seem seems like BSW might be later.... From what I hear it is a great program and I so I am excited to find out if I got in!
  11. I totally agree Trejsi. I used to check these forums a few times a week.... now it's at least 3 times a day lol!!! I have also been following the "how are you coping with the torture of waiting" and the "less competitive grad school" SLP forums. They can be pretty entertaining and It's a good reminder that we are all in this together People are starting to share cookie recipes. Dangerous...... haha!
  12. Woah, wait... there is an application status page? I had no idea I could even check that haha! *Update - I figured out how to find it. Look like mine has not been updated yet. It only has my current Dal info (I am taking some undergraduate courses). Ugh, I am so nervous now! I hope we all find out sooooooooon!
  13. Congrats to PsycD and kk!! That is so exciting. I am waiting to hear back from Dal. Last year I got a rejection the 18th and a friend of mine was accepted a few days earlier. I have been stocking the mailbox!!! Good luck to everyone who is waiting. I hope we hear soon!!!
  14. Hey Everyone, Wondering where others are applying and if you have heard anything yet?
  15. Hi ali_son, I am also applied for a BSW at Dalhousie as well as OT and SLP grad programs at Dal. This is my second year applying to grad schools, so I thought I'd try for a BSW as well since it is such a great profession. It is good that you applied to multiple schools. You have a very competitive GPA and so I am sure you will have a good chance with the BSW programs!! And I have heard that many grad programs accept applicants the second time around as it shows you are dedicated for applying again.
  16. Love True Detective! It is nice to have a good show to curl up to on these cold winter nights in the Great White North. Keep the recommendations coming
  17. Haha thanks! I think I am also eating more now because of all the exercise, so it's kind of counter productive. Oh well! I have also moved on to another show someone recommend on here, "The Mindy Project" I wasn't sure I liked it at first but I've watched 4 or 5 and I'm officially hooked. She is hilarious!
  18. Hi Everyone. So, from what I've read form the threads last year, Dalhousie sent out acceptances in batches and the first wave went out on March 18th. (even thought the website said not to expect them until April / May!) Ontario schools were about a week or 2 later (also in batches I believe) and then Quebec, BC and Alberta followed. So don't get discouraged if you don't hear back at the same time as others! I hope most programs start in mid-March again this year!! I just put in an offer on a house this week and it looks like everything is good to go, pending the inspection on Monday! If i
  19. Awesome! Just dropped off my OT application today and I wrote my first Anatomy mid-term (pre-req) this week. Brutal! My BSW stuff is due Feb 15th, but I will probably have it all finished by next week. Wow, a personal statement exam? You must be glad to be fished with that one. There are a lot of questions to answer in the Dal BSW personal statement and so it is tricky to answer them in an essay-format that flows well! I am so eager for April and May to come. I am hoping and praying that we both get into our top choices! SLP pleaseeeeeeeeeeee.
  20. Has everyone submitted everything? I know some school have different deadlines.
  21. Wow, my heart just started racing too! I also applied to Dal for SLP. I think it is a good sign that they e-mailed you It means they want to know more about you right? I am relieved that they are starting to look at applications. I applied last year and it took forever to hear back. Hopefully, we'll know by the end of April!
  22. So, I don't know if this topic has already been discussed on this forum but I am wondering if many others are applying to a few different programs like me. I have applied to Speech-Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Social Work. My dream is to get in to SLP, but it is also the most competitive of the three. I would also be very happy to be admitted to OT or SW, but I don't know which one I would choose if I got into both of these, because they are both such great professions with a lot of room to specialize in the direction I want to go career-wise. Any else in the same boat?
  23. I joined the gym and I plan on doing spin class twice a week and yoga once a week. So far I have been keeping up with the spin classes. I've never been able to keep working out a habit, but with all of this waiting it has been good to have another goal to focus on! I also watched the first 9 seasons of Grey's Anatomy. 9 seasons! How did I do that? Why did I do that?
  24. I hired an editor for my Honors Thesis which was about 100 pages with the appendices included. I asked my thesis supervisor if she used and editor as she had written a lot of articles. She did and offered to contact her to see if she would edit my thesis. Best decision I ever made! Many editors charge by the page or the hour. I was amazed at how reasonable it was. I paid about $40. I think the cost can depend on what you are looking for. Do you want someone to correct just the typos and grammatical errors? Are you concerned about making sure the APA is correct, structure and flow? In my case,
