  1. I think only the admissions office can answer you.
  2. Same happened to me last year. IP, never verified on Minerva and it showed I was in the IP pool on the regrets feedback i got.
  3. Dah. I honestly think that’s why CASper exists and why schools chose to use CASper in the first place.
  4. If and only if someone already has 3 years at 4.0, even with aGPA. I doubt UBC would do something like this.
  5. Interesting thought. My school doesn’t give A+, so you would need a 4.0 GPA to get a 92%
  6. I emailed UofT about this a few weeks ago. I believe you will get wGPA. I was told “To qualify for the wGPA, you must complete 28-30 credits in the September – April academic period of every year of your undergraduate study.”
  7. Also nothing here When did you submit your application? How do you know that you exceed the cutoffs for the current cycle?
  8. Did you take Casper on August 30th if you don’t mind me asking?
  9. Exactly the same boat as you, they just retrieved my transcripts today.
  10. Hey, thanks for your reply! That’s very interesting, and yes I was referring to 2 applicants with the same AGPA from the same application cycle. I can’t seem to find any official source that answers my exact question. Where did you get your information from? thanks again!
  11. Hello, I have a question regarding how AQ is calculated at UBC. From what I gathered, it seems AQ is automatically calculated. Does that mean 2 students with the same AGPA will also get the same AQ? Thank you in advance!
  12. Ip and refused I mentally prepared myself all night but still hurts does anyone know where I can get the rankings?
  13. Same. I don’t know if I should call the admission office
  14. I don't see anything on my end and I am also IP, does that mean I won't get an interview?
  15. I called OMSAS earlier, and was told as long as you submit your application by October 1st, it should be fine. Good luck!
  16. I also do not see where it states that we must include at least 3 things we learned. Can someone please advise? Thank you.
  17. Hi, I am aware that on average, canadian applicants apply multiple times before getting accepted, but does the first time/re-applicant status matter in the application process? On OMSAS, it actually asks whether or not I have applied in previous years, I’m a little concerned as I’m an order applicant, applying for the first time after a graduate degree, and I really hope that i won’t be penalized for being a first time applicant. Thank you.
  18. I think their cut-off of 3.7 is firm for everyone (with or without a grad degree).
  19. I didn't even apply to UBC this year, but still had a dream that I got rejected by UBC last night......
  20. Thank you for your reply. I am actually thinking to do 5 full year courses next year, and could potentially bring my wGPA up to a low 3.8 given that U of T would take off 5 lowest full year courses. Do you think a 3.8 is still below average for the grad applicant pool?
  21. Thanks again for the information, it's great to know! I will pm you with another question!
  22. Thank you so much for your reply!! We are indeed in a very similar situation, and best of luck on your upcoming interview! One more question, Is there a particular reason why you chose York to do your special year, and how do you like it there? Thanks!
