    Hey cat5,

    Like I've mentioned, the website says that you need to submit the resume before the application deadline, however if you can CALL the nursing department and speak to them over the phone and explain to them why you did not submit your resume before the application deadline, they may accept it. I'm saying this because I know many people who have submitted resumes a few days after the application deadline with a valid excuse. When I had applied for the January 2013 nursing class, I submitted my resume 3 weeks late and they still accepted it. I even updated it and had sent it in July, which was 3 months late. I can assure you that they WILL accept your resume so please do not worry yourself too much. Just try to submit it ASAP. Like I said, Tomorrow morning I'm going down to BCIT myself to submit all of my documents and resume. They give you up to January 2013 to submit other forms of documents (i.e.: transcripts, etc), You can also submit any updated resumes (That's what they told me) as well.

    Good luck and I hope this helps.

    I am going down tomorrow at 8 am. I noticed that December 15 was a Saturday and it says * or next business day. I feel dumb because I handed all my other stuff a month ago and wanted to spent christmas break working on this. Oh well

    The deadline is as stated unless it falls on weekend. In this case the 15 was Saturday so the deadline is Monday. No need to panic careubc - no idea..it depends when you start and also depends on a bunch of stuff. Starting in jan we had a week in march and then off may - aug...

    Hey guys!

    I just called the enrollment office and she said it was FOR SURE due the 31st. I called twice and got two different people and they both said the same thing.

    I just handed it in and she said there has been some confusion but the resume is due the 15th. They are being slightly lenient because of this. When I called they also told me the 31st. So I guess it is up to everyone to decide -they should change the website

    Anyone still on the waitlist? Since Aug application has not opened for me yet!!! And I am still waitlisted!!

    My status says I'm still on the waitlist too. I wouldnt worry about still being on the waitlist since the Jan. semester technically hasn't started yet. I would think they would need another week to close that waitlist. As long as you told them at some point you wanted to be considered for the August intake.

    Does that mean we still have a chance to get a seat for Jan intake?

    I'm still wait listed but if I were you I would message them saying that you'd still like to be on the waitlist but would also like to recompete for the August intake and to waiver your $60, that's what I did. I think it's past the deadline though for those who are wanting to do this? I'm not sure ....I'd call and ask maybe!

    @mass: Yes, it's quite possible. I'm assuming this because our status says waitlisted and they would've sent us some sort of email to our mybcit, if they were done with the waitlist and were officially not offered a seat.

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    I have done that, which means I am till waitlisted and well as being in Aug.
    However, Aug application has not opened for me yet.
    I was wondering why we are still on the wait list? Still we have a chance to offer a seat?

    Oh you're very welcome mass 59. That's good that you're still on the wailist and are also recompeting for the August intake. I haven't recieved anything in regards to the August intake either, perhaps we will get something once they're done with the waitlisting? I'm not too sure, but I'm sure we'll get something, don't worry. And I'm assuming we still may have a chance, but since the class started today I'm not so sure anymore.
