    Chill out my friend. I got no email from UBCO since the day I applied. Have no idea about what happened with my application.☹️

    I noticed on my uoft application on sgs that I was waitlisted for the 2-year program. I didn’t get an email or anything, so go check your sgs account!

    Looks like acceptances for UofT’s 2 Year MSW went out today. I cannot believe I’m going to get waitlisted/rejected again this year. Super fucking disappointed man. I feel like giving up.

    For those waiting for UBC-O foundational it looks like some domestic applicants last year heard March 26th- so fingers crossed we might hear tomorrow. Please update if you do!

    Thank you!
    First round - I applied straight out of undergrad with some but not a lot of direct experience (research assistant and a few months on the crisis text line) and pretty marginal grades in my last 2 years (around 78%). Also my references could have been better
    Second round - I applied the next year and had been working at a great lab where I got direct experience with conducting clinical assessments and psychiatric interviews. Still didn't get in so I started taking make-up courses to improve my GPA
    Took a break from applications for 1 year
    Third round - I had a lot of hours built up, a co-authorship on a peer reviewed paper, and great grades on my makeup courses (check my post history to see my stats last year). I even had a social worker I work with read over and edit my personal statement. I was kinda dumb and didn't realise for UofT, if you want to take makeup courses, you have to take a full 4.0 FCEs outside of your undegrad for it to count as your new GPA - I only did 4 at that point so they didn't even count into my gpa. I was very upset lol
    This round - I have 4 peer reviewed publications and poster presentations, 9000+ hours with a lot of direct patient contact, completed a certificate course on Indigenous history, and had my 8 makeup courses/ 4.0 FCEs (gpa was like 3.95, 5 A+, 2 A, 1 A-), I also retook a research methods course and got an A+ (it was an A/100-level course but it was on their approved list LOL). My references were also pretty good (a distinguished mental health professional and researcher, psych professor for a course on CBT where my final mark was 90%+, and supervisor on the crisis text line). I was really determined to get in this year so I had a meeting with a professor in the department (I did a work study with them in undergrad) and they said the breakdown for admissions is like 40% GPA, 40% experience + personal statement, and 10% the research methods course. 
    Also I feel like my personal statement really improved significantly this particular year. I was really candid about my personal lived experiences, picked a pretty good contemporary issue in social work, etc. 
    All that to say, I was still not expecting to get into UofT this year, I expected another waitlist. This just goes to show that even if you meet all the criteria over and above, the admissions process is very finicky.

    Hey everyone I'm new here! I've been looking for updates about the UBCO foundational MSW but haven't seen much, and I know how much waiting with no info can suck. So I thought it might be helpful to give an update and say I got my acceptance on March 7th with a deadline to reply by the 28th. Hopefully that gives everyone looking some info, and good luck to everyone who hasn't heard back yet!

    This was my 4th round of applications and I was prepared to quit applying for social work if I didn't get in this year. I cried last year when I got waitlisted from UofT for the 3rd time. 
     
    Speaking from personal experience, if this is your dream, please don't give up. If you want to hear my experience let me know.

    I feel this deeply. I’m with you in the same boat, once you get waitlisted it seems hopeless but i know it’s not. I hope you and I both get it so we don’t have to do round three.

    2nd time applicant here for the 2-Year UofT MSW. Going to be absolutely gutted if I get waitlisted again. Feels like I've done everything to improve my application even from last year.

    I think a lot of us who applied to UofT are loosing a lot of hope in our applications. This is my second time applying after being wait listed last year and I am just getting sad and hopeless at this point. You think your applications is so good until this point when you start questioning everything.

    I still cannot believe we are still waiting for UBCO and UofT...  I keep telling myself UofT will be April 7-9th like last year but it feels painful to wait 2+ weeks STILL.

    I completely agree! It’s so hard, I want to know if I’m moving across the country, or doing a 2 year BSW, or looking for a new job…it’s hard mentally to be in such a limbo for what feels like forever!

    You are definitely not alone! I check obsessively now. It hard waiting for your life to either change completely or stay mostly the same all the while being completely out of control of what happens at this point.
