Spring Scholarships

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the spring scholarships have all been given out?  For example, the "highest mark in X class" awards?

Thanks!

I can't speak to whether all of them have but I can confirm that at least a few have been issued.

Crim does, but I think LRW has just the one.

I wouldn't expect to hear back before September about application-based awards. I think I received my award letter in early Nov last year...

No problem! :)

They split the money in half between the winter and fall semesters. Since I had already paid my fall tuition, that money was refunded to me sometime in November. You can add your bank account info on Beartracks to get a direct deposit; otherwise, it will be sent out by cheque. 

For the winter semester, the refund went through sometime in February. So, basically, you should be prepared to pay the tuition yourself and get refunded for the award later (after the term refund deadline passes).

Assuming @Alterion isn't mistaken, which seems like an awfully safe assumption, there are at least 2 for LRW.

Perhaps they have discretion where if multiple students at the top of the class have work that is essentially indistinguishable in quality that they can hand out multiple awards.

It would make sense especially in the context of LRW where work is graded by different people based on learning groups which creates a bit of a luck element when comparing students who are apart by 1% or less in their grade for the course

They could also just give a medal to the top three or one for morning and one for afternoon. *shrugs*

Yes there should be 2 LRW awards. There is a list somewhere on the website showing a total of $2500 and I received $1250.

    • Hi,   I was just wondering if my reference would need to write one general reference letter that is applicable to every school or a targeted reference letter to each school. On the OUAC website it says that only one version is allowed so I am pretty confused.    Thanks in advance for the help!  
    • Going to help Ryn out when I can. I have the same experiences as them.  The review teams do not have the previous files, but we can request the information from admin if we needed it.  Practically speaking though, the scenario you're worrying about will not happen. It's quite rare for us to look at your previous application.  That being said I've always been of the opinion that you should tell the committee about your experiences. No reason to remove them IMHO 
    • There are a lot of recent topics on this website that you can review that discuss ways a new call can obtain employment. I was called in June 2019 and got my current job off of contacting a partner from a firm that was hiring in one practice area and providing him with an application package. I then did two interview with them, as per normal. Other people I know tended to do the same thing, rather than relying on Indeed, etc., just because it is so competitive and unless you are a superstar, it can be hard to distinguish yourself. 
    • If OP went to TRU in 1L then UBC in 2L, I'd assume they just didn't have strong cover letters/resumes. I'm in 3L at TRU and received 9 Vancouver OCIs with the following grades: A-, B+, B+, B, B, B, B. I had heard rumours that transferring to UBC from TRU/UVic looks bad to employers unless you had a compelling reason to transfer (family issues, you got married, etc.). I have no idea how true that is, so yeah.
