I'm a poli-sci student at Carleton. I was hoping to apply to Ryerson ater I graduate for the 2 year journalism program. I read, though, on an FAQ on the school of journalism website that the 2 year program is no longer offered. It doesn't say that anywhere else on the site. Does anyone know anything about this that can shed some light? Thanks.

Hello everyone!
I am currently looking to attend Ryerson for my undergrad in Journalism, and I am wondering if anyone could share any experiences or tips for the future. Also, there is a chance that I may start at another school and end up at Ryerson, and Im wondering if anyone has any transfer experience with the university [whether youre in the faculty or not]. Thank you!

I really, REALLY want to go to Ryerson for journalism.

I don't have anything published, exceot for one letter, to a magazine.
I do write frequently, but it's either to myself (in a journal) or in letters to friends, or essays/ opinion pieces I have written for school.

How much are these weighed in the application,


is it better to try to get stuff published fast, or submit really good unpublished work?

I don't know if it makes any difference, but my average is 88, and my English marks is about 85.

Hi, I am kind of interested in the journalism program.

I do have published works in our school's yearbook. The problem is, they are very bad and cheesy, and the reason for that is because Big Brother (the teacher advisor for yearbook) edits it. Should I include them anyways?

I lost my cell phone anytime between 1:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. today. Could be in the RCC, SCC/Oakham House, Gould, Church (at the corner there), anywhere along Gould, Library building (including the main floor of the library itself), Yonge or maybe right at the corner of Yonge and Dundas. It was on my jean pocket and now it's gone.

It's a flip phone (Audiovox) from Bell in a black soft case. It says "KristinaS Phone" when you open it, with the picture of a man. Please, please, please - if you have it or know who does, msg me here. Or call my home. I really really REALLY need it back.

x-posted anywhere

Second post in a row... :P

My school held a Ryerson/UofT/York info night tonight (which I just got home from). I talked to the Ryerson representative for awhile; she told me that the journalism program is quite competitive, the cut-off is 77% (which isn't that bad). She also said that someone with a 97% average might not get in over someone with an 80% average, depending on the portfolio.

So now I am seriously stressing over the portfolio. How diverse do they want the six pieces to be? Are they looking for near-professional work already?

I am in dire need of advice regarding the portfolio, so ANY given would be a huge, huge help!

Thanks :)

Hey, I'm new!

I'm applying to Ryerson journalism for fall '07. I was relieved to hear from some of you that it's not absolutely necessary to have six pieces of published work -- I have lots of pieces, but none of them are published. I'm planning on joining my school's paper, though! :)

So I'm wondering how the portfolio process is done... are there interviews prearranged, or do you send your work in? Might be a dumb question, but I've been curious lol.
And generally how big are the classes? Are they college/high school-sized (ie. 20-30 students)? Bigger?

Thanks for any answers. :)

Just out of curiousity, has anyone here applied for the 2-year fast-track program for journalism? I wanted to apply for it last year but missed the deadline =( I'm just wondering if the admissions requirements are different from the 4-year program...it doesn't appear to be so, but I'm just double checking...any help or confirmation would be lovely =)
