    Hi kabachi! I was just accepted, and I had some pretty terrible marks in my first year of university, including a couple of fails (stupid calculus). I think that these kinds of things, when put into the context of your marks increasing as you progress through school, are totally okay. My gpa isn't all that much higher than yours, and your experiences outside of school sound awesome! Hope that helps.

    Hey ladies! Just wanted to update you about what the nursing department said to strengthen application. They said take 7001 and/or 7002 and a human anatomy class! Hope this helps! Good luck!

    They also said if your on the holdlist you can reapply for August and will still remain on the holdlist till January!

    Hey kabachi, my grades suffered just as bad too but as long as you have shown significant improvement later on you should be fine. They may ask you to show how well you can do so if you are taking classes now do really well and you still have a chance!

    I'll be so happy if that is the case! I'm just confused cause two days ago they said it was one or the other - you forfeit your spot on the holdlist once you reapply.... ????

    I don't think the system will let you reapply when you are on the waitlist/holdlist

    I've been informed it will most likely happen after orientation which is mid-dec. I talked to a girl in the jan 2012 intake and she had two friends get calls mid-dec. she couldn't recall if they had been on top of the hold list or not. But still, mid-dec seems most likely... So the wait continues!

    That's crazy! It would be nice if they gave as much time as possible! They should know the numbers shortly, i would think! I'm planning to take liberal arts 7001 and 7002 in January if I do not get a seat anyone else planning to?

    oh that is something I didn't think about... i was going to finish my psych degree at UBC.. I have 9 courses left come Jan.. But if I took the rest of the nursing elective courses (those two libs courses *can you take HMGT outside of the program?) then I would have a completely free summer come the august intake... I cannot believe I never thought of that!
