    Has anyone heard anything from Laurier yet re: the online MSW program? I'm starting to get antsy!

    I hear ya on the obsessive email checking. Lol. Nonstop. I need to figure out how I’m going to pay for it so I’d like to know as soon as possible. Hopefully soon!!

    I applied for that program too! I was told we'd hear back late August/early September. If it is anything like previous cohorts, it's highly likely it will be even later than that before we hear anything. Hoping to find out sooner than later though. Good luck!

    Thank you for starting this group! We can have stress together! lol! I've applied for Laurier's online, part-time MSW for non-social work students...Jan 2019 start date. It's the only university I've applied to, and if I don't get accepted this year, my plan is to apply to Athabasca's Masters of Counselling Psychology. I have to do an online program; I'm 37, 2 kids, job. No way I can go to an actual school. Good luck to everyone!

    Thanks for the positive outlook! wishing you lots of luck as well. Did they give you a time line for getting off the wait list? That’s just more waiting for you now. How stressful!!

    I applied to the January 2019 intake for the online part-time program. Starting to worry now I won’t get in, especially if it’s based on experience. I’ve been an LPN for 11 years and have over 12,000 hours in the field, but it’s not necessarily social work stuff I’m doing. Looks like I’m going to have to start looking at a backup plan.

    I have no idea who this Dilyara person is. lol! I had a phone conversation with a Monica, who is an enrolment advisor. The first time I was on Laurier's website, a chat window popped up and I started asking questions there. Within minutes she was phoning me; I couldn't answer because I was at work so she emailed me as well. The end of the email said "I would love to talk to you further about the program. Could you let me know what time you are available so that I can set up an interview with you?" She asked me a bunch of questions about my grades and why I was interested in being a social worker. After we spoke, she sent me an email with all the application information. I applied for the January 2019 intake, and all my info has been in since last week. I expected they wouldn't start contacting people until after the application cut-off, which is June 28. Our phone conversation was very casual and I didn't really think of it as an interview, but just an informative discussion.

    Thanks for the advise! I hounded them both today and they both got them submitted right away! One of them totally forgot about it. lol. One thing off my list of things to worry about.....now comes the wait..

    Hey, does anyone know how strict Laurier is in regards to reference letter submissions? I have three people who agreed to write me letters, and only one has submitted so far. They're only given 2 weeks to submit from the date I applied...so the due date is this Friday. Personally I feel like 2 weeks isn't much time. But anyway, here we are. I'll speak to my manager at work today about her letter. But the other one is a co-worker thats's in a different building. She isn't responding to my emails so I have no idea what she's doing. If I decide to change my referee to different people, will they be given another 2 weeks? Starting to stress big time!!!

    They told me yesterday that for January start we should know by August. That seems unlikely given Sept start hasn't even found out yet. It would be nice to have a few months notice to work out the financials though.

    Thanks for the offer, and the info! Coincidentally, someone from the university called me today when I was in the middle of writing my personal statement. lol. I asked her and she said it could be done either way. But said that most people just write it as one big essay, so thats what I did. I just found it kind of hard to make it flow properly. But it's done and sent in now. Now comes the wait... ughhh.

    Hey Noelle, do you mind if I ask a question about the personal statement for Laurier? I'm working on mine right now for January admission. Did you answer all three questions separately, or did you write it all as one big essay? I'm kind of confused as to what kind of format they want it in. Thanks! Hope you hear something soon!!

    Just a question, throughout the 2.5 years of the program, do you get any breaks at all? Or is it straight going for that whole time?

    I believe you're supposed to fill everything out in the grey box underneath. I'm going to type it up in word so I can check spelling errors and stuff, and then copy and paste it back into the grey box. It sounds as though they want all the files to be uploaded as .pdf files as well, so I'm going to convert everything to .pdf when I'm done filling it all out.
