09:58 am - Waiting
I don't know if I am alone on this but I am still waiting to hear back for September. My application seems to have been a bit later in going in than most, although it is now the start of the eighth week and I am beginning to worry. Does anyone know if this is normal? I don't want to be the person who harasses the department but the waiting game is very hard to cope with in terms of stress. (I'm sure you have all been there) I have checked the mail daily, have my email set to update every 15 minutes and check in to the student profile every day about 8-9 times a day...

I guess my question is what is the best method of approaching this situation, I don't want to be a bother. Maybe I should just wait it out for a few more weeks? I know the deadline is June 20th, so it could be possible they are waiting on those entries before ruling on my application?

You could email the program coordinator? That's what I did when I started worrying about how long it was taking. If nothing else, she'll probably be able to tell you how much longer you'll have to wait (she did for me).

Yeah, I ended up caving and sending an email. I guess I have been hesitant to do so because I did not want to cause issues or seem to be a bother. It did set my mind at ease to do so though.

No news yet, but I did send the email in the afternoon on a Friday so I wasn't expecting an immediate response. I will update on Monday with more news if it comes in. (Here's hoping good thoughts)

Does everyone know about thegradcafe.com? Most grad applicants check there to find out about other people posting acceptance and rejections, although the MLIS program at western has has few people ever post.

I was told it would be about 6 weeks before they let me know, but received word from other schools and decided to log on to my account and it said I was in after 3-4 weeks!

Deep breaths, be patient, and check online because it might update there several days before you receive anything in the mail (they fedex'd a hardcopy). :)

Just to check... you're logging on to the Student Centre and not Student Services , right?

You still haven't received an email response? Did you email Shelley Long?
