Sad News

For about the 10th time since June, yesterday I set about trying to get any update as to what was going on with my wait list status with George Brown College. For the first time ever, I got ahold of someone on the same day I called in, so I was feeling good. But the woman I spoke to had bad news.

She told me that of all of the people that were initially offered positions in the program, all but one had accepted the offers and had already paid their tuition. Which is why, as seventh on the waiting list, I hadn't received a call. Except it turns out I'm not seventh on the list anymore. I'm tenth now. Apparently since the last time I spoke with them, three more worthy candidates had applied and bumped me back.

So it is highly unlikely that I will get into the program this year. I'm pretty sad about it, but I had already suspected it when I didn't hear anything back in July like they said I would. So today I sent a letter to the dean. I didn't know what else to do.

Not much else to say about that I guess. Will post if I get any updates.


  1. Oh Jacki, that sucks :( Give me a call if you want to talk.

  2. Sorry to hear that Jacki, keep us up to date when you hear back from the dean

  4. Thanks everyone, I will keep pushing
