Want to remove an activity from my ABS but I don't even think that's possible/allowed


Recommended Posts

hey everyone! I'm really hoping to get some input/advice on what I should do. 

When applying, I hesitated between adding a specific activity to my ABS or just leaving it out. It has to do with a personal experience. Before entering it, I really contemplated whether I would be able to talk about this activity if I were ever to receive an interview invite and be asked about it. 

Because of recent events, I realized that I definitely will not be able to talk about it in front of a panel if I get an interview. I desperately want to remove it but I'm not sure if that's something that's possible?

Has anyone ever experienced something similar? I know OMSAS doesn't allow it. Should I contact UOttawa and ask if it can be removed or how does it work? :(

You can’t remove anything on the ABS after you submit your application - they won’t budge even if asked prior to interview invites.

Like Cardiac Arrhythmia said, I don’t think that’s possible. I will say that right before my interview, they told me to let them know if any question made me feel uncomfortable/if there were any questions I didn’t want to answer. So I think telling them you’re uncomfortable speaking about it, if they do ask you, would be ok. Good luck :)
