Last year was the first year of the program and they were very unorganized with the acceptances. The May cohort found out 2 weeks before they were supposed to start. I was accepted for this year's May cohort and found out the first week of January. Keep the faith that you will find out soon.

Thank you for the reassurance! How are you finding the program so far? :)

Has acceptance for Laurier's on-campus 2 year MSW wrapped up? I haven't heard from them and I'm afraid that means rejection for me 

I’m waiting too...

Thanks for the update! Is this for the 2 year program? 

Hi! 

I was wondering where in your LORIS you saw the offer of admission?

Thanks so much for the info Jessica :) I’m just wondering where you read that we can still apply for OGS? :0  

@feministdreams take a look at this link for more funding info :) 

Hey,

I know the deadline has passed for this term but I believe the next application opens up again in the fall and closes sometime in December so I think we could still apply at that time and then if we were to be approved we would receive the funding April 2020 (I still need to look into this more).  I did see a note here that https://web.wlu.ca/ogsp/application the "scholarship cannot be held for a single term, you must be enrolled in the "proposed program" at the time of the award commencement".  Does anyone else have more information on this? Can you apply for the OGS during the first term of the MSW program at Laurier?

Has anyone started a FB group for the 2-year on-campus MSW at Laurier? 

Doesn't look like it but I'd love to join/create one!

I’m not the person you’re replying to but I got my BSW first and am now starting an advance standing MSW in September! Some benefits are that you get more placement hours, chances to build close relationships with social work professors (who make good references), a degree that better allows you to practice in the field before going for your MSW than a BA typically does, higher chances of acceptance to the MSW as opposed to 2 year programs, and it shaves off half the time from your MSW anyways so you don’t lose any money or time. The con is that you have to apply to two programs instead of just one and doing a 2 year MSW.

Hi all, 

For anyone that has been accepted to the 2 year on campus program at Laurier, do you know what the rough schedule would be like? Would we have class everyday? I am trying to plan out my finances and was considering driving there from Toronto depending on how many times a week I would be on campus...any input would be helpful :)

Hi! I have been accepted to both as well! Can I ask you what your reasoning is for leaning toward Laurier? 

Absolutely! I'm currently living in Guelph so getting to stay here since Laurier's campus is in Kitchener rather than relocate is a big plus for me. I am also really interested in trauma and Laurier offers a trauma certificate (as well as a variety of other certificates that are discounted for Laurier students) so I'm really looking forward to completing that!
