IB&M and Assessment Begun Email

Recommended Posts

I'm Mi'kmaq and applied through the IB&M initiative and got my 'your assessment has begun' email today and it threw me off! 

 

From reading the school forum I was under the impression that the assessment has begun email has a pretty quick turn around and people hear back within a couple weeks or so. But I was also under the impression that IB&M applications don't get looked at until late march/april-ish and theres an interview component.

 

So I was just wondering if any other IB&M ppl have gotten this email or not and if anyone thinks its anything to worry about being looked at in the wrong category, or potentially good news coming in the next couple weeks, or if its seriously nothing and just confirming my documents all made it in

I applied through this stream as well and I find it really hard to gather info about the admissions process! I haven’t received and email for under review but I spoke to someone in the office this week and they said IB&M applications are reviewed through the regular stream and the IB&M stream at the same time. Based on the email they sent I think all IB&M applicants do an interview in March and they aim to have the decisions made by the first week of April! That’s all I know so far hopefully someone else has more answers :) also when was your app completed may I ask?

I emailed IB&M on Monday asking about the timeline on their interviews and assessments and haven’t heard anything back yet. Has anyone else heard anything?

I just saw a post that Dal has cancelled classes for a week due to COVID 19 so there may be a delay!

I believe @Lizzle113 is correct and that the process is delayed due to the developing COVID-19 Situation.

My friend is applying to Dal for a physio MScPT program and their interviews just got fully cancelled and not moved online or anything... I know law has different admissions panel and same with IB&M but cancelling admissions interviews seems like a bad sign!

I think if anything the interviews will be postponed. The Federal and Provincial governments as well as the NSBS pour massive amounts of money into IB&M, so Dal does have obligations to meet.  I believe there will be some form of interview process still, but it may be a little unorthodox compared to the usual process.

 

Below is a classic cryptic email from admissions.  

 

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, the IB&M Initiative admissions schedule has been slightly delayed - although still in process. I unfortunately am unable to give a definitive answer on the timeline of our admissions review under the current circumstances.

    • Hello, I was recently admitted to Osgoode and am looking to start applying for an apartment in Assiniboine or the Osgoode Chambers as soon as possible given the limited number of 1 bedroom apartment units. I firmly accepted the offer two days ago as Osgoode is my dream law school (I seriously feel so fortunate even now), and my offer response status on OASIS was updated to "accepted" I am assuming to indicate Osgoode has processed my firm acceptance on OLSAS. Now, in my e-mail offer package sent to me by Vicky, the admissions coordinator, was a student number; this student number was the same one as my current York university student number as I am finishing up my undergraduate at York at this point in time. When I follow the housing application through for newly admitted applicants I see on the York "MyFile" page my admittance into Osgoode has been confirmed, though I cannot select the "York University Apartment Lease Term" option in the the housing application portal that extends from the "MyFile" page; as in, the option isn't there at all. I haven't received the official offer letter in the mail yet, will that contain a different student number for me to use than the one currently in my online offer package sent to me by the admissions coordinator? Or, is this simply a file processing matter and the option will be available to me at a later date? I see on my OASIS page a message at the bottom that says "stay tuned for further information about your new passport York account and Osgoode student email"- I also considered my issue is related to that. Thank you in advance anyone who replies and can provide clarifying information about this process  
    • Does anybody know what the fb group is called?
    • Can someone recommend some good neighbourhoods and apartment complexes to look into? Do most law students live alone or in groups? I’d figure grad students wouldn’t live in a house with undergrad frat boys lol   Also, if anyone is looking for a clean, serious and respectful housemate next year, my DMs are open 😝
    • hi got no dog in this fight or anything but the subject matter caught my attention, so this is just an FYI sorta: i'm coming from a software background and your reluctance to treat this as being an understandable, human error because the root cause might be a software bug is kind of suspect logic (imo, sorry!) despite those debugging courses, and despite even rigorous bug testing in the development process (fantastical case, very seldom the reality in my experience working in a variety of orgs. and domains), it is an inevitability that bugs slip through the cracks, and the more obscure they are the easier they slip, and sometimes they are found in a closed-source library that you've imported, etc. so really, as far as the end-user goes, he or she may have done some innocent thing and triggered a very obscure bug resulting in the erroneous email (okay sure, kind of a convenient scenario but still very possible) best of luck and i hope it gets resolved in your favour! imma peace out nowwwwwww 😬 edit: don't get me wrong, i'd be so upset if i got this email lol... but i mean antagonizing the institution you're trying to join seems like a bad way to go either way
    • Hi folks,  I was curious what current law students at Allard are paying for rent and whether it might be better to live on campus. Ideally I'd like to live in a studio but one to two roomates wouldn't be the biggest deal in the world. The most important thing to me is proximity to campus.  Thanks in advance!
