Congrats on your masters! I just wrapped mine up last year and it feels good.

Interesting story. I mean your stats look fantastic, it's just that interesting bit about the PhD. Not sure if you've applied before but, if you haven't, there's a section at the end of the application where you can discuss extenuating circumstances/gaps in schooling/miscellaneous clarification stuff. That might be a good spot to address it directly since they'll see on your transcripts you were registered as a phd candidate for a term. I think it's pretty much a black box on how they view anything like that but since the AQ & NAQs are screamin', I'd still apply!

best way to determine your chances with UBC is to figure out if you will get an interview by estimating your AQ and NAQ scores using the formula/comparing to other people's NAQ. 

Once you get an interview, it will be a holistic review of your file, with the interview being an important aspect. So it will really have to depend on how you interview. 

Good luck!
