  1. Still waiting on Windsor.. this is ridiculous. How can we find accommodations and deal with work/family arrangements on such short notice ?
  2. Same, waiting on Windsor’s 2 year full time msw.
  3. Anyone have any updates regarding the wait list for Windsor? Just got a rejection letter in the mail from Laurier for the online msw. Spoke to York in person and there are 5 people who are on the list to be contacted regarding acceptance. I didn’t make the cut.
  4. I got accepted to York MPPAL program as well as Guelph and Laurier MBA programs. Still trying to decide which is the best route for senior community engagement/social service/government type roles with versatility for other avenues in the future...
  5. I applied to Western, York, Windsor, and Laurier (online). After being rejected from Western, and being told the same story about York’s admission delay, I was just emailed by Windsor that I am on the waitlist. Not sure how to feel about it.
  6. Hey guys, I have been admitted into two MBA programs in Ontario Canada. 1. University of Guelph/2 year part-time online/Stream: Sustainable Commerce 2. Laurier/1 year full-time on campus/10 Streams to choose from but most interested in the Organizational Behaviour & Human Resource Management or Marketing option I have an honours degree in psychology as well as a certificate in dispute resolution from Toronto. I have also applied for Master of Social Work but so far no luck. My professional background is several years of experience in copyright/permissions administrative type work at a university, including 3-4 years of pro bono social service/human services type work that ranges from mental health research, advocacy roles, project coordinator roles, etc which were all done while working in copyright. I cannot say exactly what role I would like to fulfill after the MBA, but I enjoy working directly with people and would like to transfer this passion into the corporate world. My feelings are that I would need to do a certificate in HR and work from the bottom up before being able to even use an MBA in Organizational Behaviour/HR, whereas I may be able to use my existing experiences in social services as well as the environmental aspect from printing services for a sustainability position for an organization. Marketing may be applicable because of the copyright/printing experience as well but I am not keen on the graphics expertise side of things. The only downside is that I cant seem to find very many jobs in sustainability when searching on indeed such as "corporate social responsibility" although sustainability seems to be a growing trend. Can anyone help me decide? I am not so keen to the payroll side of HR, but more interested in consulting with employees for their health, diversity, equity, etc. Sustainability seems interesting in the fact that I can help implement areas I am already interested in for corporations. Thanks!!!!
