  1. BTW, if anyone is going to Alberta next year, I'm looking for roommates if anyone is interested. Message me and we can start talking.
  2. @WestCoastSpeechie Did you reply Sue? My friends got the official acceptance letter after they called Sue to accept verbally (it did take some time tho).
  3. Btw, if anyone is still worried about their "pending" decision on the portal, I was told that it is the Faculty of Graduate Studies or something that finalizes that so it takes much longer to update. Mine took around 2-3 weeks to update after I was accepted.
  4. @TravellingSpeechie @SLP93 I will be attending U of A too! Are you guys from Alberta? Any recommendations for where to live? I'm coming from out of province. Congratulations!!!
  5. Just got an offering with some funding from UBC
  6. @hopeful246 congratulations! I'm finishing up my undergrad at UBC and I've heard some similar comments from local SLPs. However, I do have friends in the program right now who do enjoy it. One of my friends said that the first semester is hard, but I think that's just adjusting to a new program. I also know that you so two clinical placements in your first summer. One month each at two different places. There's also another clinical placement where you alternate days between placement and going to classes. Good luck!
  7. @SLPlease? Nope, my status still says 'Under Review'. I have to keep reading the confirmation e-mail they've sent me to remind me that it's real!
  8. @theyaaz Hi there! After some debating, I'm planning to accept the offer! I'm finishing up my undergrad at UBC. I hope they call you soon! From the results in the past years, it looks like they generally give out acceptances in mid-March. Also, I think they actually send out e-mails regularly, at least that's what it looks like from the past results, so you might not need to check compulsively, but it's so hard not to! Good luck.
  9. I got a call from U of A yesterday with an acceptance and funding. Hope everyone else hears back soon!
  10. @slp_wannabe Hi there. My application has been "Under Review" since the second week of February? When my application was under "Pre-screening," that was before the administrative assistant asked for an official scanned transcript. Once I submitted that, my application went under review. If you're worried, I would e-mail the administrative assistants. They are super helpful!
  11. @VancitySLP Thanks for the insight! It's good to know that UBC has a strong clinical program alongside a good theoretical framework. I was worried based on what I've heard from previous students/SLPs that it wasn't clinical enough.
  12. @SLPhopeful17 from what i've read/heard, subGPA is your last 60 credits counting backwards from last term (or whatever grades they have access to). Cumulative GPA is just ALL you marks.
  13. @speechie_3423 I'm from UBC, and to my knowledge, they average your percentages first then convert it to a 4.33 GPA scale. We don't actually use the GPA scale, and everyone talks about their grades in terms of percentages (ie. I keep hearing that having an 85% average is important). Hope that helps!
  14. @jopyon Although I'm not applying to U of T this year, I initially was going to. I was going to take the anatomy course but decided that I won't do it this year unless I don't get into west coast schools. From what I remember, they've always asking for a research methods and a stats course. It used to be lumped together, but I guess they treat it as separate categories now?
  15. Out of curiosity, has anyone applied for the master's funding with CIHR/NSERC/SSHRC? I'm just curious to see if anyone going into the program is planning on doing a master's thesis with the clinical program.
