What do people normally wear to the Dean's reception? Like for girls is it cocktail dresses or long dresses?

    • Try for a lunch, perhaps? If you turn down a dinner and the opportunity to meet more members of the firm, while many others have accepted that dinner, then your chances are likely going to be affected negatively. I don't think that should be a surprise to anyone.
    • Hi all, I come from a percentage school and am trying to calculate my L2 U of A GPA. U of A doesn't seem to have a conversion table available on their admissions site. So far I've found this: https://www.ualberta.ca/registrar/examinations/assessment-and-grading/grade-comparison-guide Does anyone here know how to convert their transcript to U of A's scale? Thanks
    • Yes, I'd recommend submitting your application at least a few days before the deadline for the reasons you outlined. (I didn't follow my own advice and I submitted it on October 31. Fortunately, I didn't have any problems.) According to the OLSAS FAQ, there should be a "Document Tracking" feature in your account where you can track which transcripts and other documents have been received and processed. https://www.ouac.on.ca/faq/documents-in-support-at-the-ouac/
    • Some other schools do. Saskatchewan gives points for a connection to Saskatchewan, and Dalhousie and UNB have regional preferences for maritime students. 
    • Every parent I know admits that they are constantly messing things up and letting things slip between the cracks, either intentionally or accidentally.

But if that's a habit, it means a lot of your work is going to be consistently sub-par, either in terms of quality or productivity.
