  1. yeah i don't get the random increase to a 2k deposit too. wasn't it like $200 for last year's e2p class and the same for every other year before that?
  2. so basically, the people that haven't heard back yet, it's not by accident that we're getting nothing. we're just kind of waiting on the admissions office until june, at which point they'll send out more offers and waitlists and whatever
  3. That makes sense. I kinda just put whatever year for mine, guy on the phone when I called a few months ago said it didn't matter and they'd figure it out based on transcript (I'm between years). Knew I shoulda gone with 4th year lol
  4. anyone have any thoughts on why its taking so long? some rejection letters already went out yesterday according to sdn and waitlist letters are usually sent out same day arent they?
  5. they're not afaik. i know a person with a last name near the end of the alphabet and they got sent an email much earlier in the day i wonder what the heck is going on for people to be getting emails at 730 and some not even after that. the office closes way before that.
  6. What a time for hotmail to stop working. I have been using hotmail my entire life but I think I'm going to start using Gmail
  7. i don't remember that. they told us 2 weeks, but we all knew that was way too early
  8. yea yea same one i was looking at that doesn't sound right honestly. last few years have all been around this time and the people there said 2 weeks, not 4 lol
  9. where'd you get that email? haven't got anything like that on the SSC or on hotmail edit: are you talking about the one they sent out a few days after interviews? that one says that as well
  10. same. don't think i bombed any other than one of them, but who knows.
  11. Anyone get the 2-3 business days email yet? Got the autoreply confirmation email after replying to the interview invite but it's been 3 days now and still nothing.
  12. Wow, that's pretty heavy. I wonder if this criticism is new to the pharm d program or whether the kids that gradded in the old bsc program also felt similarly.
  13. Don't stress, it takes time. They received mine 3 weeks ago (mail website says so) and still haven't updated it. Remember, it's run by the undergrad office, so they gotta deal with all the high school kids applying for every single undergrad program at the same time.
  14. Where did you hear this tweaking thing and what have you heard about it? Personally, I hate that it's GPA to get an interview then completely disregarded after that. It makes no sense to have somebody with a 99% GPA and 75% GPA have equal odds of getting in after they get an interview (assuming equal ECs). GPA should be a factor after that too, it screws those of us that aren't too heavy on the ECs but have the high grades to make up for it.
  15. I put off the personal profile for long enough... Finally done it! Interviews based only on GPA. Definitely apply, you have the GPA for an interview from what I've seen on previous years threads. I know last year there were people that got in with 3.5 pre req GPA and 3.8 last 30 credits, yours is just the opposite so you should be good. As far as I know, the personal profile (where you would explain your situation) isn't even looked at for determining an interview, only acceptance, so you'd need the average grade at least to get an interview. Don't think they care ab
  16. Hey, haven't applied in the past but you should be good with that GPA I think, its usually between 75 and 80%.
  17. Figured I'd make this since there's gotta be some of us here that'll be applying to UBC this year. Share tips, discuss, etc here.
