    Interview Invites date?

  7. When I enter my essays in, after a certain point, I need to scroll to see the rest of the text as the box is not big enough. Has anyone overcame this issue?I'm worried they won't be able to scroll to see the rest of the text if I submit like this
  8. I had a question about eligible items for the exposure to diversity ABS section, that I was hoping any one in a similar situation could give me advice about. I want to use a job in policing as an example for this, but my exposure to diversity wasn't direct but through court proceedings, police reports and police database searches, which are obviously extremely detailed in painting a picture. I was wondering if this would be okay to use, as I was definitely exposed to people of different SES, ethnicities, etc.
  9. I've been sitting here for 3.5 hours trying to get this to work..have to submit my Calgary App tn too. Feeling overwhelmed

  11. 3.83 GPA, 129 CARS, In province. Would I need an above average casper, or would an average casper result likely get me an interview?
  12. How does Western look at lab courses, if the lab course was just for one semester and worth half a credit, would 4 of them constitute a full course equivalent in the GPA calculation?

    GPA Calculation

    Also, if you have more than 5 full course credits in a year, they only take the top 5 in gpa calculation.

    English prerequisite

    Thanks, this is great advice. I'll do that
  15. A bit of background, I have already completed my degree with 2 English courses. Just a few days ago I decided to apply to UBC I sent a last minute email to the admissions regarding one of the English courses that I have taken, and whether it satisfies their requirements. I'm not sure I'll receive a response in time, so I'm thinking of registering for just one English course in the winter term to fulfill the prereq, and representing that on the application course entry. Has anyone heard of a similar situation, or if taking one course outside of a degree like this is allowed?
