Holy shit. I was not expecting to get so close. I had no idea my measly ECs were worth 27.49. I was honestly expecting a 15. I have mixed emotions right now, on one hand I got so close to getting an invite and on the other hand I'm way better off than I thought. 

I guess I don't need to go to Poland lol

Sir. The time stamp is the time you got the email.

Not the time you wrote this post. Can you confirm on that?

Feels pointless to keep reapplying when your AQ score is low, and not going to change. I mean obviously every year your AQ will go down if you're GPA doesn't change?

 

Sorry for the negativity lol... Feeling very low about this whole ordeal

NAQ can be built and improved upon, I know its tough when you have an unchangable AQ, but that just means you need to keep dedicating time to NAQ. Good luck!

Kind of hard to do when you're a grad student in Ontario.

Do you have any immediate family in BC?Is there a possibility to move back to BC for a few months to get your health card back? if you were to do this, it is technically self-reported for transfering, so you could keep your BC card and use that in the event you need to seek health care>

 

I could be very wrong on this - just going off of a peers experience.

Yes, of course I have family in BC - in fact, all of my immediate family is in BC. Like I said, born and raised. The biggest problem for me is that I'm 30 and I have my own family (plus I am a full-time graduate student at SickKids so good luck with getting time off), so I can't just leave for three months to go back to BC for a few months and get a BC care card. The last province I lived in where I worked as a married adult was Alberta so that's where my health care is from. I am kicking myself over not getting BC health care when I was there from 2011-2013 (as a full time student), but when I left BC in 2013 the residency requirement was still completing high school, which I fulfilled. I am a huge fan of how the UofC handles residency, and it is too bad that UBC moved away from this model but I respect that they have to draw the line somewhere.

That is really rough. 

 

I am sending you a PM
