  1. Hey, I came back with updated chart of this cycle's admitted applicants! Bin 1: Nov-Dec Bin 2: Jan-Mar Bin 3: Post March 2019-2020: https://imgur.com/aSAAZkn 2020-2021: https://imgur.com/zCZNC69 I tried to omit indigenous applicants if they mentioned it in their post. Also for this cycle, there was only one person being admitted post March, so I created only two bins for the sake of data. I believe this demonstrates how hectic and competitive this cycle is compared to last year. Edit: I've edited this year's chart as I thought I calculated median last year but turns out it was mean. So now both charts in the links above are mean values.
  2. Hello, I was on call with representatives from TD, Scotia, CIBC, and RBC for SLOC. It seems most of the banks allow access to a fragment of the maximum eligible funding. If I'm eligible for 135K then they only let me take like amount that covers tuition and living expenses which would be like 1/3 per academic year;. However RBC seems to be an exception where the representative told me that it allows one to access the eligible maximum amount immediately at any given time. Could someone confirm is this is true? Also, are there any other banks that allow this?
  3. If you are a 4th year standing, they drop 4 courses not 3. And the pool of courses they will use to calculate CGPA will not include the courses from your current 4th year semesters. Also I’m technically in a 5th year of study in UBC and they dropped 4 courses. So it seems they treat 5th year as same as 4th year.
  4. Happy to accept it so soon - this was unexpected LSAT: 165 Lowest 4 courses dropped CGPA: 85.87% 4th year UBC student. Applied in Oct 20th. Congratulation and good luck to everyone.
  5. From "Awaiting evaluation" it changed to "Offer", dated today! Hopefully offer will be coming starting tomorrow? UBC is my only school so I hope I didn't jinx myself!!! I will follow up on my stats on the Accepted 2021 thread once I get an official offer!

  7. Thanks for the comments! It's relieving to hear that. Less anxiety for another month .
  8. Stats: 165 and 85.87 with drops Hello everyone. I believe I am fortunate enough to have my stats on the safer side. However, I wanted to look for some certainty regarding my application. I am applying to Allard only and is considering to drop my pursuit towards grad school - so there are some contingencies lying on my acceptance! I was wondering if I could possibly get in before January. I submitted mine on mid-late October and my personal statement is very average. If not, then I should probably get to work on my grad school application. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
  9. From what I heard from Allard, for calculation purpose all courses ended by August of 2020 will be considered as CGPA (all minus 4 courses) for admission to the 2020-2021 cycle. But let me know if you hear different story.
  10. If I'm understanding correctly from my email conversation with Allard, they won't calculate your current semester's classes as you are in your graduating year and the courses are still ongoing. So your GPA will remain at 79.666 when they evaluate your admission.
  11. You are still young. If you are in your first year and you don't know what to do, I suggest you try out an economics course. It's one of the few Arts degree mistaken as business while keeping close ties with its cousins: Political Science, International Relations, social science etc. Students in those disciplines have the flexibility in the job market to apply for finance/bank jobs like business undergraduates do and generally hired in government policy-related jobs as well. If you like working with numbers, suck at writing (like me) and want to try out lots of things before you seriously decide on pursuing post-graduates it's a good choice of degree.
  12. Haha yeah I saw the price there and it's like $1500? Insane. I'm just looking for some english-y major people who wants to check over for grammar and awkward sentences.
  13. Hi I'm looking for personal statement editing service (around 1300 words), but was unsure where to start. I'm not looking for ghost writing in any way, just a really thorough editing. If anybody knows where to find and the standard rate/$$ I'd appreciate if you could let me know!
