I am so happy to find this thread and thank you all for sharing your experiences I'm a BSW grad from UVic, and applying to Carleton, Laurier, U of T, Ryerson, York, and Western. I'm really hoping for York, but am aware that it seems a tough program to get into. I have a previous degree in Criminology, a Correctional Worker diploma from Fleming, plus about 14 years experience in social service (mostly working with youth in trouble with the law and substance misuse), and a decent GPA of 7.93 from UVic. However, my previous GPA from Ottawa U in Criminology isn't so hot (I was young and more interested in the social aspects of university lol), so I'm wondering how much that will hurt my application? Also, none of my experience is in research so I'm a little worried that will hurt my application as well. Argh....so much to think about! I'm looking forward to connecting with all of you as I'm finding this whole process very stressful!
In regards to the U of T application deadlines, my understanding was that the online part has to be done by Nov 28/18 at the latest (including official transcripts), and the supporting documents need to be in by December 10/18.
