    congrats!! would you mind sharing your stats with those of us who are still waiting?
    Thank you! I'm extremely surprised because I don't have my degree yet, but here are my stats:
    GPA in last 5 FCE's- 3.9 ;
    Volunteering: Mentor for High School Students, Rape Crisis Counselor, Feeder / Activity Volunteer at a Retirement Home, Math Tutor for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel.. etc.
    I think what might have saved me is that I submitted extra references, and that I attended the CNSA Conference at U of T in October (I was briefly at Ryerson for nursing, before ultimately deciding to drop out for the year to straighten out some personal issues.) Other than that, I honestly didn't think I'd have a shot..since I heard not many, if any, non-degree holders get in.

    how far along were you in your degree and what were you studying? that probably had something to do with it.

    Thanks. It was over so quickly! Hard to really know how it went given the MMI format. It would take the pressure off if I got some good news from another school in the meantime, but so far nothing positive to report.

    I think that it would make a bit of a difference that you had more education; they definitely value that in the application process. If you don't mind my asking, what were you studying/what were most of your courses in?

    I'm getting hopeless. Today is 4/23 and I haven't heard nothing from UfT. I have 4 year bachelor degree, completed all the prerequisite classes except Statistics (on process). I dont know what was wrong...

    I totally empathize; this is very, very challenging.

    I'm still waiting to hear from 4/5 Ontario schools and in some ways I think it would have been easier if I hadn't found this board! Even if I get in, I'll feel like an also-ran, knowing that others were selected far earlier.
