  1. Thanks again everyone for their input! I will say that although I will consider the Toronto market, it is very very unlikely that I will go if there is any way that I can live and work in Vancouver, as my entire family is in Vancouver. I do agree with Mal, the most important thing holding me back from Queens right now is the cost, I cannot quite justify the 30k in additional costs when I can be closer to home, and my (hopefully) future workplace. I am preeeetty sure UBC is a no go at this point, the waitlist has not moved for a month, and not only that, they have slotted more people in so I was told it is possible to move back a waitlist position. I am also heavily considering the possibility of transferring back to UBC after 1st year. Again, my entire family is here, and with elderly grandparents who are unable to travel, it may be best to stay close to home.
  2. HEY see you there! good thing I paid that second deposit for Alberta...
  3. I completely agree with everyone's points! In terms of the distance and cost of travelling, I am leaning towards Alberta. Those tiny planes from Pearson to Kingston scare the living daylights out of me. As an aside, how is the housing situation at Alberta? I have yet to delve into the market.
  4. So I am torn between Queens and Alberta I am currently waiting for UBC/UVIC but I am not holding out much hope and need to choose between the two. I eventually want to live and work in Vancouver, and I am leaning towards Queens due to an event I attended where I got to meet a bunch if interesting people, but am very interested in Alberta because the interactions I have had thus far with ambassadors and staff have been so positive. As far as my research goes, the tuition seems to be similar between Alberta and Queens, and climate is similar as well. Alberta is a bit closer to home but its not close enough to make a huge difference compared to going to Queens. Everything else in terms of atmosphere etc I hold the two fairly equal. The only thing is, Ive attended a Queens welcome event and loved it. The Alberta event doesn't happen for another two weeks, and the second deposit is due soon. Alberta is good about emailing to keep students up to date on deadlines, to do items etc, but Queens is....a little less responsive when I email, and the website/info page is also not as helpful. I have read and re-read the comparisons in this forum many times now, but does anyone have any insight? Thanks!
  5. Has anyone called in to see if there has been much movement? Also, are admissions off the waitlist rolling or in waves?
  6. Waitlisted, will be declining. Good luck to those waiting!
  7. Accepted off waitlist, I think I was 33rd or something? Declining. Good luck to those stilll waiting!
  8. The email said no waitlist positions currently available and would be ranked by end of May
  9. Ah perfect! thank you! I am still waiting on the system admin to let me back in
  10. Hi everyone! Just wanted to confirm - when you accept Queen's offer provisionally, the deposit of $500 is due by JUNE 1 via bank transfer? I thought I saw information that this payment was due in June, but cannot find anything on OLSAS and my darn SOLUS is not letting me log in. Thanks in advance!
  11. I saw on Beartracks that I am able to enrol in courses. Just to clarify as this thread seems to be the most related: I do NOT need to pick my own classes? A timetable will be made available? I was always unlucky with course selection in undergrad so I am very anxious about this open enrolment thing. I can just sit back and relax? haha
  12. I noticed for previous year official groups on FB had over 300 members
  13. I just declined my offer, good luck to those waiting!
  14. Yah! Last year even in November early acceptances had 4 or 6 pages in the accepted thread. This year acceptances started late and tapered off early. So weird! Hopefully they do another large round of acceptances soon?
