e.lehavi Posted March 1, 2017 Share Posted March 1, 2017 Hey All! I have a funny issue and not sure if this is the right place to ask about it! I’m kinda new to the whole graduate admission process. I’m applying to University of British Columbia (UBC) for MEng in Biomedical Engineering. Before applying I emailed the admissions office asking if a writing sample is required and they said that due t the fact that this is not a "writing oriented" degree the writing sample is not required, but the field on the website will stay open as the website is a generic one. A few weeks later, after the deadline for submitting the application has ended, I received an email from the admissions office asking me to submit a writing sample. To make a long story short, they said they can wave it and it won’t affect my chances of getting in as it’s a mistake they made. so here's what I’m wondering about: 1. do you guys think it will affect my chances? 2. does it mean someone looked into my application and found it interesting enough to ask me for one or is it a general process? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
