    I absolutely echo the above two commenters. I didn't have a lot of healthcare-related volunteer experience, but my volunteer experience largely had to do with helping and impacting my local community. I also did an internship last summer (also not healthcare-related) that allowed me to develop and showcase leadership and organizational skills. In my case the big project was starting a summer tutoring opportunity for foster kids struggling in math and science and headed into middle or high school. I think it's all about displaying well-developed critical thinking skills and the ability to liaison and work hard for the betterment of the community. Find those opportunities. Volunteer with your local farmers' market (I did!), find a great internship, implement community initiatives at your own workplace, or even sit down with some healthcare professionals to learn about their careers. It's all helpful. Keep at it, you've got this!!

    Are they RN or LPN programs? Do you end up with a BSN from them? Thanks!

    Agree, agree, agree. And I just got a rejection yesterday from the other school I applied to (not a nursing program, just a different program) so I'm feeling the weight of this really needing to be right for me. And I'm with Hopeful_Nurse2018, feeling like if I don't get in I'm going to just end up working towards a different career option with the education I already have. Which isn't ideal in my mind, but I don't know if I can go through all this again. The wait is agony and I'm trying so so so hard not to be anxious but it feels impossible.

    I get it. I actually live pretty close to the university, but I will have a ton of stuff to work out with my job and financing, etc. and it is not going to be easy. The sooner I find out, either it will be for me to figure everything out.

    I wish they would update the admissions blog. Still has the post from March about getting back to us by the end of April.

    I can't seem to find a number for SCC. If someone can help me find it I don't mind calling. :) TIA!

    I tried calling and it went to voicemail. I'm afraid to leave one because I don't want to come off as 'pestering'.

    Hi no-scrubs! I'm not in the program yet either (the wait is hard!), but I do live in Vancouver already as my wife is in school doing her master's up at UBC. We found a place by searching Craigslist like crazy people, honestly. Ended up with a great basement suite in Kerrisdale! I recommend searching property management sites (re/max has one, also sutton and sunstar realty I believe) as well as calling apartment companies like caprent.com. It's hard work finding a place but if you keep at it you'll find something! We are about a 10 miute drive from UBC or about 30 mins on the bus, depending where at UBC you are going. Good luck! Feel free to message me if you need help! :)

    The waiting game is so hard right now!! I feel like I have a great chance but I also realize not every qualified individual can get in. Question: Were admission letters by email only? And once you were admitted, what we're the next steps? Did you have things that had to be completed prior to September? Thanks!!!
