  1. Hey guys, Does UOttawa not look at the ABS entries which include activities done after completion of our undergraduate degree? I recently started my Masters, so am wondering if activities I did during my gap year before I started my Masters degree will be taken into consideration during the evaluation of my ABS by UOttawa. Any information on this would be really helpful. Thanks!
  2. Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone has ideas as to how CASPer is factored into the process of selecting who gets an interview invite. How are the scores calculated, is it on a cut-off basis and who marks them? Also, do they look at all 3 i.e. ABS, CASPer and GPA to determine who gets the interview invites? I feel like it went more smoothly for me than last year (I was interviewed), but not sure how interview invites were determined last year and if the process is changing this time around. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks.
  3. I keep getting the "We cannot process your application at this time..." error as well.
  4. Hey guys, I tried contacting the admissions office, but couldn't reach them. My Masters degree abroad will start in October. Because I have not started my program yet, my university will not issue me a transcript of courses I am enrolled in. What should I do in this case? Does anyone know if Ottawa requires a transcript for enrolment or will a letter from my program confirming my enrolment suffice? Also, does Ottawa require a letter regarding when I will be completing my Masters? I know schools like U of T, Western etc have specific requirements. What is the case with Ottawa? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, guys! :)
  5. Hey guys, Now that the interviews are over, I wanted to ask how everyone felt about their interview. Ottawa was my only shot and I feel like I totally blew it. I can't stop replaying it in my head over and over again. I even had 1-2 members in the panel who were friendly. I don't think I got to showcase who I am based on the questions that were asked. Found them pretty random and all over the place. Also don't think I answered 2 ethics questions well enough - can think of so many things I could have said and not said. I honestly don't know what to feel about this entire interview experience. Is it normal to feel this way? How did you guys find yours?

Time Stamp: 29/1/2018 6:27 pm Location: IP Stream: English wGPA: approx. 3.95 Current year: Graduated from UG; currently working ECs: Lots of research, community volunteering and work experience Casper: Honestly, I didn't think it went well at all. I couldn't complete some of my responses for the 3rd question. I am not a great typist, so I struggled with answering questions under the time limit. Maybe it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had no hope of securing an interview at Ottawa. I am so grateful for the opportunity!

    Me too please!
  8. Hi everyone, I have a few activities I have done abroad and as an online volunteer. Can I list international verifiers from the respective organizations for these activities? They would have an international contact number (time difference is a lot as well) and there would also be a language barrier issue to go with it. I want to list their contact number, address and also include their email in the end (just in case). Is this alright? I don't have anyone in Canada to vouch for these activities except for family and friends (who I don't want to list). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
