    I was going through last august intake's thread on this forum and people got acceptance emails on April 24/25th until the 30th or so and then wait list came out, followed by rejections

    I've been imagining it to be the 25th when we hear back. 2.5 weeks.

    Do you think they'll call the references? I'm thinking they may not cause there is already so much to review from the questionnaire.

    I don't think they will. I also don't think the questionnaire will have a huge impact - I think it will be the bigger picture ( credits, volunteer work, program committment).

    Maybe it's worth 30%? I believe it's worth 30 points.

    Hi everyone!!! To me, the 4 questionnaire that we had to fill out seems like an interview, just like how UBC Nursing does their applicants. Doing interview online is way better in person, consider it gives you the time to think about what you are going to say and it saves the BCIT Nursing selection committee time...you know...interviewing 176 applicant will probably take at least 1 month. As for contacting the reference, they probably will contact them. I know this because my volunteer manager told me that she knows about the BCIT nursing reference procedure, that is, emailing the reference people and request them to fill out few questionnaires. Hope this helps everyone! GOOD LUCK!!!

    They only had to fill out sheets in previous intakes because there was no questionnaire.
