    I promised myself that when I was accepted I would help future applicants.. so feel free to ask me questions.. i would prefer if you wrote in the august 2013 forum though. Your resume should include your work and volunteer history, education, objective etc. If you have never made one... I guess I would go to your university' s help center. They usually have students there who assist you ( especially UBC). From what I understand the new entrance requirements state that you need to have over 65% in anatomy and phys. so if you have that I wouldnt bother re taking it. Bumblebee, in the past they asked for those letters if you were shortlisted.. they will tell you at the end of October.. its usually a cut from around 750 applicants to 176. However, for the intake that i was accepted into they sent me a questionnairre when I was shortlisted so none of these things were required. Hope this helps.

    Hey Lego House/Dobby

    You're extra-curricular activities are pretty good. 45 credits is also really good. I applied (and was shortlisted) with over 60 credits and an associates degree in business but my average for all of that must have been really around 2.20. These are courses from the last 10 years or so. BUT, the GPA of the required courses in the new Matrix was around 82%. So you're looking pretty good I'd say. It really depends on how you ended up with the required courses in my opinion. I've been looking at the forum chronologically backwards so you may have already been short-listed. I hope so! I'm a Kelowna resident as well so hopefully we can represent.

    Good luck!
