Which school did you get into!?  I went to teacher’s college a few years ago and don’t live too far from you.  How long do you have to decide?  I would definitely hit accept if it comes down to it!  Looking back in a few years, this won’t be as big of a deal. πŸ™‚

Congratulations on your acceptance! Although it will be a little stressful probably, and I am sure at this point you don’t want to change the date of your wedding. BUT it will be all worth it, if you don’t get accepted somewhere else!

That does sound stressful! If you can, I would wait to hear from the other schools before you hit accept. And if you do end up going to this one, I think they would understand that you’d miss Thursday and Friday for your wedding… days in the beginning of the semester always seem much easier to make up than ones in the middle or end, at least!

I have lots of events one right after another, but my situation is a little less rough, since I have lots of days in between. Still stresses me out, though:

Saturday, April 28: Senior Recital (I’m a music major and this is my final major solo concert)

Friday, May 11: Graduation (for me and FH)

May 14-23: FH goes on 10-day trip with school ensemble to the country of Chile

May 15-22: I go on 8-day trip to NYC area for mini-vacation/check out housing

Saturday, May 26: FH is groomsman in BFF’s wedding

Saturday, June 9: Bridal Shower

Saturday, June 16: Wedding

June 19-26: Honeymoon

June 27-July 7: FH leaves for National Guard duty

July or August: Uproot our lives and move to Newark, NJ!

September 4: My first day of graduate school at Rutgers

Like I said, it’s more spread out, but still, seems like a lot of life events in one period of time. Stresses me out just looking at it.

Good luck with yours!! You’ll make it through!

I went to school a couple of days after giving birth. No absence policy = no time off for a new mama! lol! Not as stressful as school on your wedding day ( crazy!) I am sure but I can relate!

I go to Queen’s and will be applying to teacher’s college in the near future! Which schools did you apply to? I definitely know how hard it is to get in lately so I wouldn’t hesitate to hit accept if I were you πŸ˜‰ unless of course one of the other schools is your dream teacher’s college, then I would just wait if at all possible to see what happens with the waitlisting. I don’t have any advice for your situation, but I totally understand why this would be stressful. Good luck (: I’m sure everything will fall into place!

Question… is teachers college something different than getting a bachelors degree in education in the states? Cause I go to a midsized university with a killer education program but it isn’t that hard to get into, you pass the test, you get in pretty much. Is this like a masters program? Not the point of the post, but just confused me!
Anyway, congrats OP on getting in! I might still wait to see about the other schools assuming they are all about the same on everything but start date. And maybe you can talk to the profs before you get there if you end up at the first school and explain your wedding has been planned and paid for and try to go ahead and get the work you would miss those days done so it isn’t a big deal.

I’m hoping this doesn’t happen to me. I’m planning on August 17th 2013 as our wedding date and I’m not sure when each of the 3 graduate schools I’m planning on applying to will start. If I get in, I’m guessing classes start the last week of August, but they don’t have schedules online yet so I just have to cross my fingers.

Congratulations on getting accepted!

@jema:  Wow, that’s awesome!  Congratulations, I know how competitive it is.

I haven’t heard anything about Laurier, sorry!  I applied to 6 in Ontario and got into two (Brock & Trent).  I went to Brock and can tell you that the program is excellent, but tough.  I had friends who went to OISE and it sounded like a lazy walk in the park compared to the sleepless nights we were having in St. Catharines!

Good luck with everything and congrats again.  PM me if you have any questions that I could help answer!  Also, remember that school boards don’t care where you go or what marks you got while you were there; you just have to graduate. πŸ™‚

Good for you!  I know what you mean about teacher’s college (Canadian teacher here).  I would speak to them and just let them know what’s going on.  Especially since from your original post, it sounds like you would be just during the orientation week?  I would think they would be understanding about that.  I completely missed the entire orientation for my graduate degree; they had no problems with it.  They just emailed me the documents.  I would just talk to them and see if they can somehow work with you.

Congrats! I’d wait and see what happens with the other two but if you haven’t heard anything and the acceptance deadline for the one you got into is drawing near then I’d hit accept πŸ™‚
