My OUzone account has been 'under evaluation' since I received my confirmation email September 27th.

Is anyone else annoyed that we have to pay $200 to OLSAS and they can't forward our info on to schools quickly? Not really sure what we're paying for if it's not efficiency.

Mine has been under evaluation for over a month, hoping to get an answer soon

Again, not be be too much of a downer, but it may stay "under evaluation" all the way through the summer, including after they've decided to reject you. 

It definitely does not mean a decision is imminent.

    • Yes. 100 percent true and has happened. Bad undergrad grades much more likely to be a non factor than any sort of determining factor.
    • I’m also an international applicant, I heard back this week. I’m not sure if there is a general trend, and it’s hard to tell because proportionally most people who post here are domestic 
    • When I was going to recruiting events in the UK, some of the best ones that I got were portable chargers, headphones, cardholders, coffee cups, and travel bottles. Highlighters, sticky notes, flags, and notebooks were also highly sought. One of the worst ones (in my opinion) was a chalkboard mug. It was handy, but it was really useless and unnecessary. 
    • If you want to work in BC, then being in BC is only going to make that easier (both local law, and local connections), but Alberta is unlikely to be a bad choice for that, it just doesn't have the local benefits. It would likely have a lower cost (even Vic living would be more, never mind Vancouver). UVic coop can offer some unique opportunities unavailable to students at other schools, but it also doesn't guarantee anything, and you might find yourself competing against other students for great jobs anyway (especially for during summer).   One thing to bear in mind with UVic is that funding is heavily needs-based, so if you're in a position to pay for 2/3 of things upfront as you say, that might actually work against you a little, as people who can pay for things are expected to, and people who can't get the bursaries - which is a thing it's a little hard to complain about because people without money are the ones who need it, but it also means the ones who diligently saved can feel a little punished for being responsible. That said, it would likely be a mid point of cost between UBC and UoA - Victoria's expensive, it's not Vancouver expensive.   And UoA has a prairie winter, nobody wants that.
