    that's too bad, thanks for the update. we definitely need another canadian program! last i found out, there were 500 applicants to laurentian university and over 800 to ryerson last year. it seems to be getting tougher and tougher to get into a canadian program.

     Now I'm kind of depressed...I applied to McMaster this year but have no degree or experience, (aside from having my own 3 children) and it's sounding like there's not a lot of hope for getting in!  I don't really have the resources to pursue an undergrad degree and then another 4 year degree in midwifery, any suggestions on what I can do to enhance my application for next year??

    i think your best bet is to probably call the program you are applying for and talk to someone there.

    Hi Katedelarose, Since you are out at UBC, have you heard anything regarding the funding review and the possibility of a program for September. I have applied and have been anxiously waiting to hear if there will even be a program. Jess

    Hey!

    Yes, there is definitely still a program! I have not heard the specifics of the review, except that it went well. I know that they want to expand the program to about 40 students/class but I'm not sure when they'll get the funding to do it. Anyways, there will be a new class so keep the faith + good luck!!
