  1. Just wanted to wish anyone sitting for the flex today good luck! I am writing at 11:30, can't wait for it to be over. Remember to keep a steady and consistent pace - don't rush through the questions just because it's test day. 😊 We got this!!!
  2. Lol my heart literally stopped, so im glad im not the only one
  3. Did anyone use a family member as a verifier? If not who else did you use? I am using a close friend who I went to school with, we worked together on a variety of projects so it makes sense that she could speak to my achievements which I spoke about in my personal statement. I was thinking of using a boss/manager but they wouldn't be able to speak to all of my statement, only the parts about work. Anyways just thought I'd check in to see if anyone had any suggestions.
  4. Yeah I was gonna mostly use what I put on my OLSAS Sketch, I guess bullet point format implies no small description about each point? Would love to know everyone else's thoughts.
  5. I am also in the same position! Will be calling tomorrow, I will update if I get an answer.
  6. Just so you know I got an email back and she said that the information is correct! It's optional!
  7. Hey all! I noticed on Dal's website for their LOR protocol it says: "Referees must send the references directly to the Admissions Office by mail, fax or from a professional e-mail address. Referees may use either the Referee Statement Form (Appendix A) or provide the reference on their official letterhead." I understand this to mean that my referees can opt out of the appendix A form as long as they send their LOR on a letterhead? Are any past applicants or current students able to confirm this for me? My referees are very busy and I don't want to bug them with unnecessary forms if I don't have to.. Last question: Does anyone know if there is anything they need to include in the email, other than the attached letter of recommendation, to connect their letters with my application? It seems sketchy to just send an email with my LOR and I want to ensure it is connected properly to my application. For the record I have already emailed Dal to ask these questions but I thought I would reach out to this community to see if anyone else already knows the answer. Thanks in advance!
  8. me too I'm hoping they see that I was nervous, that would be the best case!
  9. I just took my interview assessment and despite preparing as much as I could for it I choked out of nerves (and over preparation) on the first question. I said what I could and cut myself off by submitting the response when I felt my mind go blank. This ultimately affected the rest of the interview and I'm so disheartened right now because Ryerson was a school I was hoping for. Would love any advice as I feel like my chances are over now, this component was a horrible introduction of me.
  10. Thanks so much! I was a little concerned because its a bit untraditional so it thought it would be safe to get some objective opinions.
  11. Hi all! I graduated in June 2019 and have been self-employed ever since, I'm a little concerned that this may look untraditional to ad com's (and hence impact me negatively) so I thought it could be helpful to gain some perspective from others. I have lots of experience working in agency environments in areas including public relations, marketing, advertising and editorial publishing from when I was in school, however after working with their clients and seeing my work manifest I felt compelled to take on the challenge of accepting my own clients while looking for a full time job. This side hustle turned into a full-time hustle pretty quickly as my client services grew within the year, this new venture had it's own challenges along the way (ie: accountability, persistence, self-discipline, initiative, etc.) but served me fortunately during the pandemic as I was able to work from home and my client work actually picked up. I have amazing reference letters from my professors and one of my clients said they will write me one on behalf of their business, however I just wanted to gain perspective from others on how this may impact me against other applicants? Is this something anyone else has dealt with before? Thanks in advance!
  12. I'm really sorry to hear, I hope you got into other schools though because your stats are great! Do you mind me asking what your EC's were?
  13. This is the advice I needed THANK YOU and good luck in 1L I’m really excited for you! ❤️
  14. Thanks so much, this is so true! I really appreciate your story
