    mdpwns1763 got a reaction from Condude in 2020 Entrance Stress   
    No sense stressing about it, no one here has any idea what it means. They could contact every single one of your verifiers or none. Your application is done, it is out of your hands, enjoy your life for the next few months. If you get an interview, do your prep, interview and then again, just wait. I saw so many people stressing about verifiers/ starting to worry about interviews they hadn’t even received yet last cycle. It’s not healthy to cause yourself so much stress when it isn’t needed. 
     
    Not trying to be critical I just think it is important to separate ourselves from the process until we are required to be involved again.

    mdpwns1763 got a reaction from frenchpress in Does UBC provide you the % GPA that they've calculated for your app? If so... when?   
    Well the post title is a bit confusing. I interpreted it as does it show the % which it does. It doesn’t show the gpa

    I think they’re still going through applications and profiles.  The 90-credit verification will come in when it needs to, and they’ll continue their process.  I don’t think they need that much time to double check everything (probably max a week?). Assuming that, they’ll probably have this week and the next to still do application/profile reviews.
    There are many factors involved in their decisions, and each year I bet it changes to some extent as well.  So, it’s very difficult to predict their decisions.  I know the mind likes to wonder about the how and why and what if, but try your best to stay neutral; don’t be too harsh on yourself and don’t be too hyped.  See what happens — after all, we are very close to finding out.
    I’ve heard about a few very qualified individuals as well who weren’t even waitlisted, but it is us who think they are qualified.  We don’t know what admissions thinks and we don’t know their system.  Our interpretations, thus, will always be incomplete.  Perhaps the person you know didn’t demonstrate the level of maturity admissions was looking for.  Or, perhaps they weren’t as well-rounded as other applicants.  Or, perhaps their reference letters weren’t as convincing.  Or, or, or... There are multiple variables, which we’ll never know for sure.
    It seems like overall you feel good, and that’s important.  Stick with that and a few grains of hope, and see what happens.  Best of luck!
