  1. Yes paid work should be under employment section, non-paid work is in the NAQ section
  2. I agree with what the people have said above. If you feel comfortable sharing your experiences, then I would say you should go for it. Personally, I included in my entry about how I grew up in a single parent household and having to take care of my younger siblings. Of course, you want to make sure you write it in a way that doesn't come across self-pitying, but I think a lot of these personal adversities shape the person you are and is worth writing about. Let me know if you need any help!
  3. I would give it a few days and contact them after if it's still not received.
  4. Agree with the above, you want to highlight your roles/responsibilities in your activities as best as you can. UBC doesn't care much about what you learned or felt from the experience as much.
  5. I think when writing your NAQs, it's best to tell them what you did because that's what they're most interested in. I'm happy to read over anybody's NAQ entries if they want a second eye!
  6. I don't think there's any harm to editing your entries in a way that you feel would make it stronger. The reason the NAQ sometimes fluctuates each year despite the same activities and perhaps even the same wording is that the applicant pool differs and becomes stronger each year.
  7. Hey there, I think i may be able to help you, feel free to pm me!
  8. An 82% is definitely not a bad start and keep in mind that UBC will drop your 1st year once you have 120 credits at the time of the application.
  9. I agree with the above. In general, I think UBC is okay if you use short forms because they're probably more concerned with learning what you did in your role than making it sound all grammatically perfect. That said, you still want to make sure you don't make it too short form that it's difficult to read or understand.
