  1. That’s interesting and definitely give people hope! I got this feedback from her during the summer before they’re admissions policy changed for this year and next. I’m not sure though but it’s definitely comforting for applicants.
  2. I’ve spoken to Vicki after being waitlisted last year and she said that they like having pre-reqs B+ and above. If you have any course work below a B+ it’s worth considering repeating it.
  3. I got a portal message about needing to update an transcript from 2019 for a course I took at another university and that I’d get an email soon. I got the official letter a few minutes later. For sure! I don’t mind my last name starts with S. I got my B.Ed in 2020 and after being waitlisted I decided to take on a diploma in ESL last fall. I’ve worked as an RA for the past three years and also volunteering in various labs. I think that really helped alongside my student teaching experiences. My gpa calculation was a little strange because I had practicum courses in my last two years so I thi
  4. Hey everyone! I just heard back from UofA! 🥳 I’m a second time applicant and I didn’t make it off the waitlist last year.
  5. Hey there! I'm a second time applicant. I'm assuming that your statement of intent has a word/page limit therefore it's important to be really selective about the experiences you're elaborating on. Your statement is your chance to tell them why they should pick you. Why you stand out and what you can bring to the cohort that you're peers might not be able to. You really have to sell yourself. And so take pride in your accomplishments, the lessons you learned, and exude that confidence. Passion gets you far because it'll answer the so-what. Your grades and resume are just facts about you -
  6. For those who are applying to the UofA, have you seen this message on the department page. Does it mean that they'll be taking into account how competitive an applicant's GPA is? A plan of action towards an Anti-Racist Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at University of Alberta In keeping with our commitment to recognize barriers and increase Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI), we are adjusting our admissions process in two ways beginning in 2021. This is in addition to the requirement for all students admitted to the MSc-SLP program to complete a course focused on
  7. Will anyone who's been accepted to UofA mind pm-ing me their stats and their experiences? I'd love to get a sense of what they're looking for and see how I can improve my future application. Thanks!
  8. I spoke with Vicki a few weeks ago and she mentioned that she recommends we hold onto the letters just in case for next year (the department hasn’t made any decisions about next year’s admissions). This semester‘s grades aren’t considered for admission - our GPA’s were calculated based on previous semesters. It might be different if you’re completing pre-reqs this semester. But they usually tell you your admission is dependent on you passing and completing the course. This is what I know about U of A. It could be different for other universities.
  9. No I haven't heard back yet. It's proving to be a much slower process than I anticipated. I think it's a combination of the two. It usually takes a few days for your acceptance to kick in before you can enrol in classes.
  10. Does anyone know if there was a delay like this last year? Are they waiting until after the weekend?
  11. Same here! I'm wondering if they even sent out offers today
