I received my acceptance through email yesterday and my portal hasn't updated yet either! It still says it is in "pre-screening". 

Congrats to everyone accepted and good luck to everyone still waiting!! :) 

Thanks for confirming! I was a bit stressed over it, haha. Congratulations to you too! :)

@SpeechLP2020 and @EagerSpeechie2019 thanks so much for your replies! I wasn't sure how that worked so it's a relief to know that if I do get waitlisted I'll know right away.  My guess is that

I'm so nervous! I'll let everyone know what happens. Keeping my fingers crossed 🙂🙂

Hi everyone! I ended up getting a spot at U of A (off the waitlist) on Thursday! Hopefully knowing there’s still some movement encourages you who are still waiting, since I too had lost hope. Good luc

Does anyone know what UofA is referring to when they ask me to upload "an updated transcript with the grading sheet attached"? What sort of grading sheet are they looking for? I expected my transcripts would contain enough information on my grades! Thanks in advance!

Did you end up receiving an email asking for an updated transcript with a grading sheet? If it just said it on the admissions letter but you didn't receive an email asking for the updated transcript with grading sheet, then you're good! If you did end up receiving an email, they just want the grading scheme, like the page that indicates that a 4.0 = A+ = Excellent etc.. Does that make sense?

Not sure if this is applicable to you but when I scanned and uploaded my transcript during my application I scanned both the front and back sides even though it seemed like the back side was just a generic message in a light font and didn't really have any important information on it. But it had the grading scale on it for my university! So maybe if you didn't include that in your application that is what they're asking for? I uploaded a screenshot of what it looked like on the back of my transcript.

I know someone posted the stats for a few of the other universities but can't remember if someone posted for U of A. Does anyone know the stats on how many people apply vs. how many get accepted to U of A each year?

Hi Everyone,

 

Just wondering if anyone knows the average class size for U of A? And the waitlist size? Thanks in advance 

On the planner for beartracks it shows that the classes have 61 students in them, and labs are divided into 30 and 31 students. As for the waitlist, I heard UofA usually has 10-15 people. :)

Hi there! I’m a current UofA student and at the start of the term we had 58 students and last years class had the same. The bigger class size on bear tracks is because sometimes PhD students also participate in some of our classes.

Thank you for the info! Do you happen to have already taken courses at U of A? I was looking around and I think the planner may actually be a feature for students who have already been enrolled :P

Sorry! I should have mentioned, I’m able to view the classes available next year because I’m still a student at the UofA. I can send you screenshots of the classes/times or the info if you’d like! :)

That would be really fantastic if you don't mind/have time! Thank you! I'm mostly curious about the times :)
