Hey everyone. I've seen some threads from previous intakes, but none for this upcoming one, so I thought I'd make my own.. and hopefully receive some responses.
Just wondering how many of you have applied already? And with what GPA, prior education (# of credits, past degrees), and work/volunteer hours or experience you are applying with.
Also what grades have you gotten in the pre-reqs?
I myself have got 35 credits at SFU with a 3.14 GPA..
I've been volunteering at a care home for a few months now.
Chem 11 - 96%
Pre Calc 12 - 77%
ENGL 1177 - B
Anatomy and Physiology (1) - A-
Anatomy and Physiology (2) - B+
Psychology - A
For general education I got A's in both classes.
I just thought it would be helpful to see what others are applying with, so we can get a sense of our own standing and where we need to improve on. I hope in this thread we can all exchange tips and get to know eachother incase we do all end up going to BCIT together

I've applied just a month ago, and I'm very skeptical about getting in--I just don't see it happening hehe. From my experience with one of BCIT's programs, getting in is the easy part (lots of sleepless nights and lots o' reading and paperwork--LOTS). I have, however, heard of good things about their students (they're pretty competent in comparison to VCC/Douglas).
Also, we pretty much have the same grades:
Chem 11: 87
Pre Calc 11/12: 88
A&P I: A
A&P II: A
Health Sciences: A
Other than that, I have 33 total post-secondary credits, worked part-time, and have volunteered at SPH and a nursing home with 300+ hrs for two years.
Again, I'm very skeptical when it comes to BCIT since nearly everyone who got accepted there might as well apply for UBC Medicine lol. Because I do not have a degree, I'm doing everything I can to prep myself in case I DO get in, like mastering A&P and going over some NCLEX reviewers just to get used to the test style (DW, I can count the number of correct answers with my five fingers lol)
Sorry for the novel
