Does ottawa weigh ECs heavily?

Recommended Posts

Personal opinion: These views only represent my own

Seems like pre-interview, all that really matters is GPA+CASpers.

During the interview, they may/may not use some entries from your ABS to steer conversation.

Post-interview, what seems to mostly matter is interview score+GPA. Mabye ABS can be used to mend apart some candidates. who knows.

GPA for sure seems to matter. However I have seen people combing through ABS entries in November (I am assuming they were on the admissions committee). I don't see why they would be doing that if they didnt look at abs.

In our interview letters, they stated that interview invites were based on GPA and Casper. Then they mention the ABS in the interview portion for assessing some of those qualities you should have. 

Remember Ottawa used to have an abbreviated ABS so the way they use it isn't as extensive as other schools.
