    Actually I found out by just going on the myfile page randomly. I realized after that they had sent an email to me...but it went straight to my junk box. That email was sent about 5 days after my official acceptance on myfile though.

    Hi friends - I received an acceptance to Laurier's 2-year on campus MSW today (around 4:30) but will be attending UofT instead so a spot will open up! Congratulations to everyone that heard!

    I got waitlisted at Western back in March but they offered me admission a few days ago. Although I will be accepting my UofT offer, it makes more sense for me with my living situation. So hopefully whoever is waitlisted at Western gets the next offer when I decline mine!

    Just heard back as well. The website wasn't working for a bit and then when I checked again I was admitted, so maybe they were sending out acceptances. I also don't have an acceptance letter yet either (I applied to York for undergrad so there will be another tab after 'Letters of Recommendation Status' that says 'Admission Letters' - mine only has the acceptance from undergrad in 2016, so far). I also applied to Carelton and UofT (all 2 year) and will most likely choose York, so for those on waitlists, more spots opening!

    I got invited to the MSW 2 year program at UofT! I already paid my admission deposit.
    I've been waiting for this for 3 years! I was wait-listed 2 years ago and since then I have acquired my SSW diploma, 1 year experience as an addictions counsellor and 2 years experience as a crisis responder for Kids Help Phone. I outlined this new experience in my application. 
    I originally was pessimistic about the process since my CGPA for my BA is 2.8. My last year GPA (all senior courses) is 3.4. Therefore, to those who are worried about your marks and eligibility...yes it can affect your chance of getting in but not if you have some research , volunteer and work experience. I also included some personal information about myself in my written statement. I mentioned how I have lived experience with depression and anxiety which is how I can relate to my clients.
    Hopefully this can give some type of ease to those that did not receive perfect grades.
    Good luck to everyone else.

    I got into the Advanced Standing, full time programs for U of T (MH & H), Laurier, and Western! All September 2020 starts. I will be attending U of T.
    Career trajectory:
    Completed BA, took the summer off to volunteer as an intake worker in a social service, then got first job in social services (skills development). Worked there for 2 years then decided to go back to school and complete a 2 year BSW (84% avg, spiced up by participating in student council and applying to awards/bursaries). Worked full time as an addiction counsellor, part time with LGBTQ youth and respite, for 2 more years, then applied to my MSW and got in! On the side, I also completed a lot of professional development (just like lunch and learns and agency trainings - about 1 a month) and took on different volunteer opportunities for the agencies I worked for organizing festivals/fundraisers.
    Based on my experience, I would recommend that if you can, do your BSW first. Really focus on your statement of interest, keep it passionate about the social work field and career experiences with only a sprinkle of the personal. Look up YouTube videos on what social work is, or advice videos on writing grad school statement of interests. If you can, attend MSW information sessions. I know how crushing a no can be (applied and rejected to an MA program right out of my BA), but giving yourself time to grow and hone in on what will make you stand out as a candidate is by no means a failing.
