    Hey - it was due the 15th. I handed it in rushed and then asked my admissions officer and she said she will take it up to the 31. So try to hand it in ASAP but don't worry too much. Maybe bring it down tomorrow and explain your situation.

    Has anyone gotten in on their first time applying? I think my application is very strong but im still nervous as it is my first time :S

    There have been people who were accepted there first time but mostly, I hear, it's 2 or even sometimes 3 times. What did you apply with if you don't mind me asking?

    Hey I dont mind at all. I have applied with all of my electives including Libs 7001 and 7002 which I completed last summer. I am only missing HLED. I graduated in May with a Sociology and Psychology degree. I volunteer in three health care places ( seniors home, VGH and one more). I also do other volunteer work. I am also currently taking anatomy and physiology which I mentioned.

    I'm also taking a Human Anatomy & Physiology (6 credit) course as well. Where are you taking yours, if you don't mind me asking, cat5? and I've taken The Canadian Health System, HMGT 7180 for non-nursing students at BCIT and is the exact same course that is supposed to be taken while you're in the program. It was offered during the spring time so I don't know if they still offer it? They did change the name of the course though, that's all. It's really good to hear that we're all done a majority of our electives so it will increase our chances of getting accepted. Btw, this is my second time recompeting for the program, but don't lose hope! Quite a few people get accepted on their first try and from the sounds of it, you seem to have everything you're supposed to have.

    Hi Cat5,
    I got special status on the wait list on my first try and deferred to the August 2013 semester (which was my plan anyways) since those on the special status are guaranteed admission for the next intake.
    I was SO nervous as well because I applied with 100+ credits from SFU, tons of volunteer experience in the health care setting, and some of my electives completed. However, one of my reference letters was "average" and I believe that really weakened my application. Also, I forgot to attach a cover letter with my reference letter explaining my duties when volunteering in a health care setting - so make sure you don't forget to do this!!!

    I'm sure you will be fine! Good luck to you

    Your application seems strong! I think you have a great chance of getting in on the first try. I was accepted the first time applying to BCIT, so it does happen.

    On another note I just started LIBS 7001 and HLED online courses this semester to ease the workload of the program later. I am not sure how I feel about the excessive group work, especially when all communication is just through email and forums.

    Does anyone know if Douglas College Biology courses can be credited for the Anatomy & Physiology requirement for BCIT?

    Hi amour,

    you can check the BC transfer guide. Here's the link to it: Transfer Agreement Search By Receiving Course - BC Transfer Guide

    Hope this helps. You can always contact BCIT's nursing program and find out as well.

    hi I have a few little questions in regards to applying, hopefully someone can help me:

    -can you still submit your resume- I was confused about when the actual deadline was

    -for your University transcripts, do they have to be mailed directly from your university to BCIT or can you actually drop it off (sealed) in person.

    Thank you : )
