  1. I got an auto-reply that didn't answer my question so I posted here. I just checked my email again though, and I've received a direct response. For anyone else with the same question, treat re-applying like a fresh start. Everything needs to be submitted again for the file to be considered complete.
  2. Do we have to re-submit transcripts and references if nothing has changed? I am re-applying and the only new information is my statement of interest.
  3. I wouldn't be surprised if nobody else gets accepted off the waitlist this year. I also wouldn't be surprised if 10 people get accepted on the 10th lol. Who knows, this year is such a clusterfuck of unpredictability.
  4. I emailed yesterday and received the same response.
  5. Where did you find the average stats for TRU? I have been trying to find this info to figure out my chances.
  6. I'm pretty sure it has since I got waitlisted, but not before.
  7. I've stopped waiting and started planning my applications for next year. I'm going to apply early to every school in BC and AB. Waiting without action really doesn't suit me. Of course if I get an offer I'll accept, but if I don't I'm already on to the next step so rejection won't crush me.
  8. Any guesses why the facebook group jumped to 130 members today?
  9. 91 now. I'm sure we're all wondering how close to 115 it's going to be.
  10. Maybe both, but almost definitely an acceptance or two. Hang in there. It's tough, I know, but at least we'll have an update soon. If I don't get in this wave I'm considering it a rejection and preparing to re-apply in October.
  11. There's likely at least a few empty seats based on people who've posted that they declined offers. Also seems likely that there will be some kind of movement on the waitlist next week. I'm holding out some hope for emails to go out this Friday, but don't expect much.
  12. I've lived in Kamloops off and on since 2010. The first few years I was paying off student loans so I chose not to buy a car. I chose rentals based on the bus routes and being walking distance to a grocery store. The main transit routes run frequent service during rush hours, but there are many times when I missed a night bus and had to wait an hour for the next. This hurts any time but especially in the winter. If your budget allows for a car I'd say get a car. Aside from convenience and warmth, there are a lot of beautiful places around Kamloops that can only be accessed with a vehicle. A cheaper alternative is to take advantage of low season weekend rentals. The last 2 years or so before I bought my vehicle I rented a car nearly every weekend outside of Christmas and summer. If you have credit card insurance and you don't rent in high season, you can usually find a compact vehicle from friday-monday for $75-$90. I spent less than 1/3 of what it now costs me to own, insure, and maintain my car.
  13. No, I haven't received an email and I'm thinking it's either good or very bad. Maybe there's a mini wave coming before June because people who've already declined. In that case, not recieving an email about a June update might be a good sign. Or maybe they are waiting to send the next wave out in June and are only sending emails out to those applicants ranked at the top of the waiting list. In that case, not recieving word of an update could be a very bad sign.
  14. I wonder if they will do a combination of mostly online with some face-to-face small groups when/if possible.
