Hi team! 

Congratulations to all the successful applicants! You put so much work in! I hope you celebrate your successes and take some time to breathe! 

I do have some questions as I was wait listed this year. I was wondering if anyone who was previously wait listed and then this year had successful applications might be able to provide some information regarding how they improved their applications. I was also wondering if someone might feel comfortable sharing their successful application with me. I would love to just compare and contrast and see how I could have improved my framework or organization. 

I am so hoping to get into this program (if not off the wait list, next year) and would love just to do some peer research! Especially because I'm trying to decide if I should just go the BSW route and then do the advanced placement... 

You should all be celebrating! Thank you for your time and consideration. 

Hey! I was waitlisted in 2017 and got accepted to the two year program at UofT this time around. After getting waitlisted, I spent some time considering what my application lacked and realized that I didn't have enough work or research experience. Since my initial application, I obtained more work experience in healthcare (my field of interest) and also volunteered for a children's mental health agency as a Research Assistant. 

I also filled out the portion of the application where they ask how your application has changed since last applying. I kept it brief but outlined the hours of work and volunteer experience that I got since my first application. Hope this helps!

Has anyone spoken to the folks at Laurier, by chance?

I was thinking of reaching out to them to see if they were still on track to send out admission decisions during the first week of April.  I can't take any more weeks of waiting haha!

Hey human friends,

I received my acceptance letter yesterday for UofT MSW. Not advance standing program.  

Im looking for other humans who have gotten in and are willing to embark on the journey having known someone. 

Maybe we could even have a meet in greet at a coffee place or something. 

Let me know,

Congrats to everyone who got in!

Goodluck to all those still waiting.

Hey guys! My congratulations to everyone who got accepted to U of T! For those of you who got accepted would you be able to share the deadline date to pay the deposit in order to secure your spot? I am on their wait-list and I also got accepted to U of Calgary. The program in Calgary starts in May (super soon) but I prefer to stay in Toronto since I live here. So I am wondering if U of T will send any updates before May to those who got waitlisted .  Thank you :)

The waitlist letter we received made it seem as if they don’t reconsider until after the May 24th deadline to accept the wait-list ... but I hope this is not the case!

Hey there! We have to pay our deposit by May 31st. 

Also, I live in Calgary currently. If you want any advice about where to live or anything like that, feel free to message me. I would be more than happy to help out. :)

Yeah! Has anyone set up a facebook page?

Not yet,  I tried but to create a group I need to have at least one person as a Facebook friend to add to the group, to get it started.

You can send me a friend request or a message @susiechicafelix and we can start it together 🙂

Hi guys,

Two year - uoft Msw question

How do I pay the $500 deposit? I don't have a checkbook and I never used a money order. 

Also, when does Uoft sent the Acceptance Package in the mail for us to sign?

Thanks

I think they should send the package soon. Hopefully there will be detailed instructions on how to pay the deposit, I was hoping we can pay it online directly but I’ve been too busy celebrating and convincing myself this is real life so I didn’t really look into the deposit yet. 

I kinda want to get the physical package in my mailbox to allow myself to fully believe it. 😂

Hey there!

Paying the deposit has been absolutely confusing, but I am pretty sure they want us to send it through traditional mail. I asked Angela about the deposit situation and this is what she said:

"The deposit is due at the end of May; when you submit your payment please include the confirmation deposit form and submit it directly to Student Accounts, 215 Huron Street (address is on the form)."

I am going to talk to my bank about this since I do not have cheques/money orders either - but I am sure we will be able to figure something out. I believe that different mailing companies (e.g., Canada Post, UPS) have secured ways to send cheques/money orders over. I am also willing to pay a little extra to ensure the deposit is sent over safely.

I am going to do be doing this all today, so I will update the forum if I find out any valuable information about this process! :) However, will UofT be sending a physical package through mail as well? I thought they were sending their acceptances through e-mails this year - since a lot of the information can be found on our SGS account.
