    First of all, congratulations for scoring 1 in CASPER section as I personally thought that was the most difficult section. Also, you sound super young with lots of time to get into nursing if you're only in second year. Good for you for already knowing what you want to do and applying to the BSN program. "Any advice on activities those of you that got accepted put down on the supplemental application would be much appreciated! Also did you focus on one activity or multiple for each question." I'm just going to answer your questions in order. I think I filled out only 5 jobs in the employment section even though there was more space. 3 out of 5 were all healthcare related and paid jobs, the other two unrelated to healthcare (Starbucks and Quizno's, LOL). The activity questions, I didn't mention too many for each question - just maybe 2-3 activities that helped me explain my answer. I tried not to repeat activities because there were other extra-curriculars that I wanted to talk about that didn't get mentioned. I didn't list any research experience because I heard it didn't give many points so I used the limited space for other activities. I'd be interested in knowing how others who listed research experience scored. "Also, what was your GPA?" my GPA was >90% "There wasn't a specific combo of scores required on the application to get in was there (for example 1's in all three categories)?" I received an offer, and my profile was 1 (GPA) 2 (supplemental) 2 (CASPER). I think you are already ahead of the game. I think you will do great next year if you improve on GPA and try to get more healthcare experience. I am still amazed you scored so high on CASPER! Okay, now I have a question about the course registration Usually, if there are multiple sections, you have to specify which section you want to register on SSC, right? - even if the timetable is standardized. I see multiple courses that are each taking place in several lecture halls (so multiple sections), but all I can pick is the entire course? It seems like for Nursing, I just pick the STT and that's it...?

    Oh, no worries. You would've figured out anyway!

    Yeah, BC transfer guide says Lang Eng 1127 is equivalent to UBC ENGL 112 Hmm, I think it would be okay. Even if you did get a C, that's just one course and is not representative of your academic performance. Anything we get after Dec 2018 does not count towards our admission GPA. Generally, admission office wants your in progress grades to be within 10% of the admission average. All of our acceptances were conditional - one being we successfully complete in progress courses. One B or C shouldnt really be a problem. But, double check with Ruxandra!

    Hi again Ethereal! I have another question From what I understand, UBC BSN transfers 48 credits from previous studies. How did you get to choose those 48 credits? Do their GPA transfer as well or just their credits? Second question is about NRSG 330. On the grade distribution for 2018 W, no one has been able to achieve above 85-89% with most people getting 72-84%. What makes its average noticeably lower than other courses? What is your advice for doing well in this course?

    Hey mb96! Ruxandra got back to me. I do have to submit a transcript at the end of August when I finish my current courses. I also thought I'd only need transcripts up to in-progress courses at the time of application O.o Anyway, thanks for thinking this through with me!

    That's what I heard too, but from my experience, the program is super chill! Yes, I agree with you. It's probably the unfamiliarity that makes term 1 tough. Also for me, first year at UBC was the biggest change in terms of getting used to bigger volume of material. The biggest difficulty though was in 4th year when it was the concepts that were challenging to understand and high grades weren't even in the grade distribution :S ^ so that's what I was wondering. Sorry, mb96 if I sounded pessimistic totally wasn't my intention. Anyway, from what Ethereal said though, it sounds like we can do it with hard work!! I'm ready for that!!! Like you said balance and staying positive is key

    Thank you so much for your support and encouragement! I remember the highest marks of all sections being low 70s in some Biochemistry/Statistics courses. There was even a student that had one national competitions but still only achieved low 70s. I'm glad to hear that the grades achieved during the UBC BSN program are reflective of the amount of work! Thank you so much again for all your help!!! I will remember to watch those videos!

    Your answers are really helpful. I really appreciate your help. Thank you so much! If I have too many questions, please feel free to skip some :'D UBC BSN sounds very intense, especially since I know you were a graduate student. How difficult do you think it is to achieve good grades in the program? Even though grades aren't everything to me, I still want to try to achieve good grades. Also, are clinical courses pass/fail or graded? What would you advise us about the clinical courses?

    Hi Ethereal, I know UBC changed its program and now its clinical hours are on par with BCIT's. I still hear people mentioning that BCIT nursing graduates are more prepared in practical sense (initially) than UBC nursing graduates. What's your opinion on this matter?

    ^ Sorry, it must be the Jan-Apr 2019 term official transcript

    Hello everyone, I am getting so confused with the type of official transcripts required by June 15th. Is it the official transcript for all courses up to December 31, 2018 (the courses that counted towards the GPA calculation)? or all courses taken up to now so including Jan-Apr 2019 term?
