    I just paid my commitment fee! Does anyone know how long of a break you get during the program around Christmas time?

    That's awesome you guys, congratulations! I know it's a long shot, but does anyone know if one portion of the application is weighted more than another, like credits more than volunteer hours, or if it's pretty even?

    I applied 2 times in total.

    First time was for Aug 2012 intake, didn't even get shortlisted instead got a "non-accept".

    Second time was for this January intake, got shortlisted and then was on top of the holdlist which gave me a seat for sure for this August 2013 intake.

    I have a BSc in Psychology from UBCO and my volunteer was from high school as a Candy Striper, also my over GPA was not the greatest but showed great improvement in my last 2 years.--This was what I had the first time applying as well as the second time, but after applying the second time I took the LIBS 7001 & 7002 courses.

    So for any of you that don't think your grades will cut it, BCIT really just looks for people that show they are passionate about the program so make sure you show it by improving your grades the next time around and completing the necessary electives.

    Goodluck to those who are waiting!!

    Thats really good to hear! My grades have definitely shown improvement, and I have all of the recommend courses, except one, from UBCO as well. I also have A&P.

    Congrats again though! Glad you stuck with it.

    I'm hoping that all the sociology, eng and psych course in my degree transfer!-- it would make my summers actual summers so I won't need to take the electives at all. I have all the recommended courses I'll need to take that Health Management though.
