  1. For the full-time 2 year program, on campus. I don't think I had an especially high GPA (82%), so I'm honestly not sure.
  2. I got notified yesterday that I was offered an OGS scholarship for Laurier! I didn't even apply, so it was a huge surprise. Has anyone else ever heard of this happening before (not completing the application beforehand and needing to retroactively complete it when offered the award)?
  3. Congrats! That must feel like a big relief. Here is the FB group if you'd like to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/165235444294203/
  4. I did some rough calculations on when we should hear back... the 1-years got their responses around March 2nd, and had three weeks to reply (March 23), and the waitlisted applicants seem to have heard back last week (roughly 1 month later). By that timeline, the 2-years heard back around March 29th, and had about three weeks to reply (April 24). So 1 month from then would be May 22nd. That seems in line with last year -- the waitlist moved near the end of May/beginning of June. Still quite a bit of waiting to go!
  5. If you aren't on the waitlist, then sadly it is a rejection. I called last week too, to the same effect. They only accepted 20 and waitlisted 10.
  6. Thanks for the heads up, I just called! Sadly I didn't get in.
  7. Mine is the same, and I saw at least one person here say theirs is "reviewed - unsuccessful". I want to be hopeful that I'm on the waitlist, but they did say only 10 get waitlisted in total so it's a very slim chance. York seems to be especially slow with updating MyFile, even for those that get accepted; it's usually a 2 week wait for any online updates, from the day they make the decision.
  8. For those accepted to the YorkU 2-year fulltime, was there a date that you had to respond by for your offer?
  9. I joined too! Had to reactivate Facebook but it's worth it haha
  10. Most - if not all - grad programs don't let you defer acceptance, and the same is plausibly true for waitlist status as well
  11. I'm currently sitting on that decision as well (and waiting to see if perhaps I'm waitlisted at York, since that's my top choice). I'd like to call them and ask what the deposit is, because I'll probably go the route @foxstock suggested and see how that plays out. It doesn't sit well with me though, since if I don't get into UofT then I'll probably feel "stuck" with Laurier and I don't want to have that kind of attitude towards a great program
  12. At the Laurier info session, did they say how many people typically apply? How many they accept?
  13. I got an email from Laurier! I'm accepted into the 2-year MSW program Strange that it got sent outside of business hours, but I'm not complaining
  14. I'm wondering the same thing, to be honest. I'd like to think that it's simply a lack of spots, since being waitlisted is definitely distinct from being rejected. There must be particulars to the accepted applicants that made them stand out slightly more, and unfortunately it can't be a completely objective process. It must be hard being on the admissions committee, because sometimes you have to pick based on seemingly insignificant factors, since two applicants can be practically identical. When I talked with a graduate advisor who was going over my application, she said to put in as much int
  15. I called them on Tuesday to ask and they said that the 20 accepted were already contacted, but the waitlist/reject list have not been compiled yet. I posted it a few pages back (but it got buried underneath the UofT acceptance wave haha), but here it is: The lists will be finalized in the next 1-2 weeks. About 10 people get on the waitlist. You will be notified in some form if you do get on the waitlist.
  16. No sorry, I got waitlisted in the mail but no change in ACORN!
  17. I got the letter in the mail, but no change on ACORN or the admissions website unfortunately. I have my fingers crossed for you!
  18. I was also put on the waitlist for UofT! As much as I can't stand the wait, I'm grateful to at least be considered. ETA: I live in Etobicoke, so that's likely why I got it so fast.
  19. I just called York about possible waitlist positions (for the 2-year), here is the info they gave me: The waitlist isn't compiled yet, but it will likely be sent out in the next 1-2 weeks. About 10 people get on the waitlist. You will be notified in some form if you do get on the waitlist. Here's to hoping! It's my top choice, although I know it's a longshot considering the sheer amount of applicants.
  20. My stomach is in knots my last name is also near the very end of the alphabet so who knows if that effects it & congrats @lydia616 and @smntoronto!! So happy for both of you
  21. None yet on my end. If it gets to 4:00pm and I don't hear anything I'll try calling the graduate assistant.
  22. @Mari* In the same boat waiting on those two programs! But instead of my boyfriend checking the mail, it's me calling my stepdad back at home about any "official-looking mail" and hoping he can read the letterhead properly hahaha. It's rough getting acceptances sent by mail when you don't live at your permanent address, it adds a whole other layer of stress. I also just got my G1 a few months ago, since some practicum placements require you being able to drive. So my method to not think about the wait is driving practice!
  23. That is so intentionally vague! But them saying "positive response" in the end makes me think you did get accepted
