Anyone heard anything from Laurier’s 2 year MSW program yet?

We have to wait until late March/early April. It's coming up soon! ūüôā

They send an e-mail if we are accepted. Or a snail mail letter if we are not :(

I'm declining my offer as I've accepted an offer from Carleton (better location for me and some more funding).  Hope that helps!

thanks for responding! All the best at Carleton :)

Hello fellow two-year applicants!

I've been waitlisted at Carleton and have received an offer from Western. I'd love to go there (the small class really appeals) but I'd also like to see if I receive funding elsewhere, since money is tight. I also applied at Laurier, York, and U of T, and have received no word, but Western wants me to accept their offer by Friday ... any idea whether it's appropriate to ask for an extension since so few of the other schools have given word? A week turnaround for a decision seems really tight!

Thanks for any help -- been lurking for awhile, and it's been nice seeing everyone's success :)

Call and ask for an extension on the deadline.

mainly just logistical stuff.  i live in hamilton and don't have my full license so would need to take public transit - of which there is basically none.  as well, i have a toddler and am just not sure if daycare will work out.  and i also may have a full-time job offer (fingers crossed) next week which i wouldn't want to leave for school.  just a lot of variables.

i would LOVE to attend the program as in person learning is so much better, but i will probably go to dalhousie in the end.  still mulling it over.

Congrats! That's so exciting. Do you mind if I ask when you heard back and what was the email subject line. Additionally, I am kind of worried about my last two years average, do you mind sharing what your average was? 

Thank you! The subject line was just Offer of Admission I believe, and I had a 3.7 GPA

That's exactly what I'm worried about. I'd love more time to see if I hear back from anyone else. Let me know if you end up contacting them for an extension!

Ah, sounds like there are definitely a lot of factors in play! All the best with your decision making :)

Ill be accepting my offer to Laurier and declining my offer from ryerson! Best of luck to those on the waitlist XX

That sounds amazing! Congrats!!

Out of curiosity, did Ryerson already sent out all their acceptances (and applicants they wait-listed)? Asking for a friend.

Thanks.

Based on last year's thread, we may hear around March 27th? It's hard to say because I know it varies every year. I have also been super anxious on waiting to hear back.

I'm just finishing up my BSW at UBC this spring - can't speak to the MSW aspects of the program, but if you have any questions about the School in general, shoot me a DM!

No, I applied to the FT 2-year one :) but when I e-mailed them about wait times, etc. they sent me this list: 

  • MSW Advanced Standing full-time program:¬† end of February/early March
  • MSW 2 year full-time program:¬†¬† end of March/early April
  • MSW Online part-time programs (September start date):¬† end of May/early June

Has anyone with a degree other than a BSW applied to a Canadian MSW program?

I have an honours psychology degree and a developmental studies degree, and I may be attending a pre-MSW program this fall which "prepares" you for direct entry into the Universities MSW program the following year.

Just wondering if anyone has been accepted into an MSW program with a degree other than BSW or a pre-masters MSW from a different school. 

I'd like to get my pre-masters from this school then apply out of province for MSW! Wondering if it's possible!?

Thanks in advance!
