    Today at around 12:20 pm I found out through MyFile that I was accepted to York's Advanced Standing MSW Program!!!! After being rejected from Laurier last week, this news made my day! I'm so excited to start in September. All the best to everyone applying!

    Does anyone have any insights into what York's expectations and preferences are for applicants for the Advanced Standing MSW?

    That sounds amazing! Congrats!! Out of curiosity, did Ryerson already sent out all their acceptances (and applicants they wait-listed)? Asking for a friend. Thanks.

    It's great you're planning ahead! Most of my experience is also with individuals with intellectual disabilities. When I contacted U of T regarding their mental health stream, they did not specify if they included intellectual/developmental disabilities or dual diagnoses into this stream. They referred me to review the curriculum content of the mental health stream which did not have intellectual/developmental disabilities or dual diagnoses listed down under their course descriptions. Since I'm not in the program, I'm not sure if they are looking for people with experience in the disability sector for their mental health stream. It's important to apply to a stream you are most passionate about while accumulating more experience in the sector you want to work with 😊 For people who did their MSW in the mental health stream, did the curriculum cover various disabilities?

    I heard today that York would start giving acceptances sometime next week. I'm looking forward to hearing back from them as I got rejected from Laurier because they wanted applicants with a lot of experience (3-6 years in the field). For those who got into York's advanced standing MSW last year, how many hours in the field did you have and what was your GPA like?

    I'm very sorry to hear this. My Loris also stated that I was an unsuccessful candidate. Hopefully we all get into the other schools we applied to.

    Thank you so much for this information, it is helpful! 😊 No worries about not knowing the exact calculation of hours, I am sure it differs each year. I remember when I contacted the department they told me that they equally weigh each section of the application such as: GPA, hours in the field, written statement, and references. Hopefully that is the case this application round. Best of luck to you too! Congrats on getting into U of T!!! Very exciting!

    Hello everyone! For those who got into Laurier's Advanced Standing in-person or online MSW Programs (for Spring 2019 or prior) what was your GPA and how many hours in the field did you have? Thank you very much!!

    I appreciate you looking into this for me. Thank you so much for this valuable information! Do you by chance know how many hours would be considered for 3.6 years of experience? I have a total of 4515 hours of volunteer, summer work, and placement experiences. Thanks!!

    If possible, would you mind sharing what Laurier's averages of last year's applicants were for the Advanced Standing MSW? Thank you so much!

    On last year's forum people found out they got into Laurier starting on February 26. Not sure exactly when they're going to give acceptances this year, however, when I emailed Laurier earlier this month they said late February/early March.

    My pleasure! You have contributed a lot to the field so I don't see a reason why they wouldn't accept you. There is still hope for you to be accepted to U of T. Today was only the first day they sent out acceptances. I really hope you hear soon from U of T and Ryerson! I applied to York and Laurier's Advanced Standing MSW Programs.

    The last time I emailed Laurier, they told me that advanced standing applicants would be notified late February/early March. Hopefully by next week we'll know!
