Just to paint a picture of what’s happening (also to feel less alone haha) could everyone who hasn’t heard from U of T yet like this post? 

Yes same here. I feel physically sick waiting all day. It is crazy making. Who here is waiting on U of T? (Show with a like)

This must be some kind of social experiment

So it may depend on the school, but I know York for example allow graduated students to apply to be "Non-degree status" and take courses to go on their transcripts etc.

Yeah I also know someone who is taking courses at York after graduating their undergraduate, as they want to get into medical school.

I feel that too :( I thought that I would hear back by now since my last name starts with a C. I hope this doesn't mean that I am rejected or waitlisted.😩

Maybe they've gone out of order?! My fingers are crossed for you!

Just a question, does anyone know how to go about improving your grades after you’ve already graduated? I want to have a few back up plans if I don’t get into my msw this year. Any info is helpful!

I did this to improve my overall GPA. I did my undergraduate degree at Western and the only way I was able to take courses and for it to count towards the GPA of my undergrad degree was to do it at Western (I tried to transfer to U of T since I live in Toronto and they said you can't do that). I was able to register as a "Special Student" and take courses. I took three half-year courses and although I got very high marks, it only slightly improved my GPA. I don't mean to sound discouraging if you are looking to improve your overall GPA, rather than just in specific courses - this is just my experience. The universities that I was applying to at the time recommended that I do another degree if I wanted to significantly improve my GPA, which I did not end up doing.

Thank you! I am just finishing a certificate in mental health and addictions but it’s at George brown so I don’t know how helpful that will be. Thank you for the info!
