    Laurier does not send acceptance by mail, only email and Lori's.

    When you select the Master of Social Work under the admissions tab the acceptance letter shows up instead of the list of documents that you have submitted.

    Those of us who were accepted to Laurier were for the May cohort not September. Hope this helps your anxiety:)

    I was accepted into Laurier's may online cohort. My stats are: Completing my BA in Child and Youth Care in April. Currently my cumulative GPA is 3.93 (4.0 in my last 10 courses). I have been working as an educational assistant for the OCDSB since I got my diploma in Child and Youth Work in 2010. For the last 2 years I have been in an alternate high school program for First Nations, Metis and Inuit students, but I have also worked in mainstream classes and spec. ed programs for students with behaviour and mental health diagnoses. I also spent 4 years working for the special needs department of the City of Ottawa parks and rec. I have worked in and then run therapeutic rec programs for children with behaviour and mental health diagnoses and programs for children who are on the autism spectrum. My placements were with a semi-independent housing program for justice-involved youth and a day treatment school-based program for young people with mental health disorders.

    No it is an email only and then you accept on Loris. You have 30 days from the day you get the email to accept the offer.

    Getting ready to do MSW

    I have done my undergrad completely online and will doing my MSW the same way. I had access to all the writing and academic supports that are available to on-campus students over the phone or by skype. I'm assuming the same would be for graduate programs.

    From what I understand, because it is a part-time grad program the only way to get the funding is to first apply to OSAP. I may be misunderstanding, but it seemed all the internal scholarship options were only available to full-time students.

    Hey, My Loris has updated now because I got the official email from fgps. I guess the one last night from our enrollment advisors were just to let us know we were in.
  11. I am confused by what you are saying maybe because I'm Canadian and we have a different system here. My advice though was to accept your admission offer rather than putting it off. I know you are worried about debt, but waiting another year won't change your financial situation much and at least when you finish school you will likely get a higher paying job which will make it easier to pay off your loans. If you decide to move back to your hometown you can apply to transfer schools then, but don't put off something that you want to do on a maybe. Does that make more sense?
  12. I think it is a decision you have to make for yourself. Ask yourself though if putting it off will solve the debt issue if you don't end up moving back or will you just have an extra year to worry about money at a lower pay rate (not to mention another year if the stressful waiting for admission letters( If you do move back you could always apply for a transfer to the other school.

    I was told advanced standing applicants would all be informed first and then they would move on to the 2-year program applicants. Knowing this has not stopped me from religiously checking my email every 10 minutes since I saw the post last night saying they had started accepting students.
