    Congarts to all those getting your acceptances :). 


    Just a question, has anyone been accepted into U of T MSW 2 year stream with a GPA between 3.0 and 3.5? I gather from posts it seems all very high 3's or 4.

    when I convert my GPA to the 4.0 scale, it comes out to 3.37 CGPA, semester before applying was 3.8 and A- in my research methods course

  2. Just a background, I applied right out of university where I studied business (BComm). I have a 3.650/4.33 CGPA, with work experience as a tutor, peer academic coach, government and volunteer experiences at homeless shelters and over 6 student groups related to diversity, empowerment, minority groups. I started my own student chapter of a student focused on pan-asian leadership. I also have 4 different awards/scholarships and worked on my personal statement for months. 

    Good luck to everyone else, this process is scary and anxiety filled, take care of yourselves.

  3. Decisions for the 1 year HBSW at Lakehead are going to be delayed just emailed Madge Chen, not sure to when exactly.

    "Unfortunately there will be a delay in sending our offers of admission to the one-year HBSW program as our staff are busy with dealing with field placements with our current students.  Also decisions still need to be made about the delivery of the one-year program as situations with the COVID-19 are changing by the day.  As soon as we know more we will be updating everyone.  Please continue to monitor your Lakehead University email account and myInfo for up-to-date information."

  4. Hello, so some schools are allowing students to make their courses pass/fail so there won't be a grade and courses show up as a CRD (credit). does anyone know if social work programs care about how many courses students are making a CRD? in the end it won't affect your GPA but do schools care that there isn't a grade? Thanks everyone!

  5. Hi everyone! Just wondering if anyone has gotten into an MSW program with a Bachelor of Commerce before? I'm finishing up my final year and am applying to the 2 year MSW program across Ontario (York, UofT, Western, Windsor, Laurier, Carleton), Calgary and Yorkville (MA in counselling)! I have a lot of different experience in the social work field but come from a business background, hoping to go to Clinical SW. I'll take all the help I can get with my application! I've listed some of my experiences below! Good luck everyone :) 


    I started my own student group at Ryerson University about the lack of diversity in the workforce and the lack of representation of successful pan-Asian leaders, Project Manager of an international Project that provides education to marginalized youth in Peru, I volunteer with my school's sexual assault survivor line, I interned for an organization called Raising the Roof, they focus on homelessness prevention, I worked as a teaching assistant for the first-year strategy for success course, mentor for 1st-year students, Outreach for a mental health awareness student group on campus, provided pro-bono consulting for non-profits through the university consulting group, volunteered with the make-a-wish foundation

    Currently I am a Peer Academic Coach on campus, Research Assistant at Raising the Roof, and volunteer at an lgbtq+ safehouse.

    I would appreciate all your insight and help!
