  1. Will anyone who's been accepted to UofA mind pm-ing me their stats and their experiences? I'd love to get a sense of what they're looking for and see how I can improve my future application. Thanks!
  2. I spoke with Vicki a few weeks ago and she mentioned that she recommends we hold onto the letters just in case for next year (the department hasn’t made any decisions about next year’s admissions). This semester‘s grades aren’t considered for admission - our GPA’s were calculated based on previous semesters. It might be different if you’re completing pre-reqs this semester. But they usually tell you your admission is dependent on you passing and completing the course. This is what I know about U of A. It could be different for other universities.
  3. No I haven't heard back yet. It's proving to be a much slower process than I anticipated. I think it's a combination of the two. It usually takes a few days for your acceptance to kick in before you can enrol in classes.
  4. Not yet. Trying to remain patient 🙃
  5. Does anyone know if there was a delay like this last year? Are they waiting until after the weekend?
  6. Same here! I'm wondering if they even sent out offers today
  7. Wow your extra-curricular sound amazing! Unfortunately with Canadian schools I've found that a huge emphasis is placed on GPA especially due to the competitive nature of the program and limited amount of schools. I'd recommend taking on another semester of course work to place yourself in the best position for the next cycle. I'd take a close look at my GPA and figure out exactly what I have and how much do you need to place yourself in a competitive position. It's also really important to research the classes you take to maximize your ability to score high. Sadly it's GPA that gets you through the door or what can hold you back. You've done an awesome job at taking on those experiences and that's something that will definitely work in your favour. It shows that you are dedicated and passionate about the discipline! I don't know what schools are nearby you but if you are able to, I would try to volunteer at a lab in the department you'd apply to. This will help you familiarize with the program and get to know the professors. At the same time, it can put a face to your application and hopefully someone there can vouch for you. Something that I've learned is that it's really important to not take it all to heart. There are so many people applying and at the end of the day, there are only so many seats. It's a setback but it will only push you to work on the weaker points of your application. Hopefully that helps!
  8. Hey, I haven't heard anything back yet. based off of the letter I think the earliest people would start hearing back is on the 15th.
  9. Just a heads up for anyone who will be re-applying next year to Alberta if things don't work out, I've spoken with Vicki and depending on you institution, you may want to obtain letters from your professors for any coursework being completed this semester. I know that the UofA has switched their grading to Credit/No Credit and therefore students will be able to obtain a letter from their professors about their class performance. She recommended that I hold onto those letters just in case. She also mentioned that "there has been no discussion currently regarding next year. The department is working through covid-19 and budget cuts at this time". I want to stress that this isn't something official but is worth considering and looking out for. I know with how things are these days and being asked to self-isolate I'm not sure how things will turn out, so it's best we all do our due diligence and keep records.
  10. I would send an email to Vicki and attach the certificate. She'll be the best person to ask.
  11. My understanding is that people have until April 15th to respond. So people on the waitlist will hear sometime after that. Stay safe!!
  12. I've also been waitlisted and wondering how long the waitlist was. Did you see that on last years forum? I also heard that 20 of the 58 seats last year were filled by people who were on the waitlist. Hopefully the list moves fast for those us hoping to get into UofA.
