Competitive For Oop?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

If I had around an 89-90% average, would that be considering competitive for an OOP applicant if my ECs were considered good?

P.S this is for next round of applications. I was considering whether I should apply or not, amy advice is appreciated :)

So a 90 aGPA this past cycle corresponded to an AQ score of about 31 points (see AQ calc = 1.5838*aGPA - 111.5). The AQ score yielded from a given aGPA fluctuates from year to year, and is based on the competitiveness of the applicant pool. Thus your AQ score may go up or down (slightly) on a given year even with the same aGPA.

 

The minimum TFR score needed for an OOP interview invite this past cycle was 63.16. Thus, theoretically you would need in the neighborhood of an NAQ minimum of 32 points (Mean NAQ of applicant pool set at ~25). As no one knows exactly how UBC adcom quantifies the NAQ portion of the application, I'd say definitely apply! Write your NAQ entries meaningfully and succinctly, and of course, hope for the best! :)
