I am a 4th year student studying at University of Waterloo graduating in April. With the admission season around the corner, I ran into your posts on this website. Can you elaborate on how you had prepared for supplementary essay in the past and tell me how you went about getting a reference letter from a professor? On the website it says I need to get the reference letter from a professor. There is some blurred line with the term professor, in which I am not sure if it is okay to approach an instructor with doctoral degree who had previously taught me in the past.
Thanks for answering
Hey, congrats! I graduated from waterloo a couple years ago as well. For the supp i relied on past forums from here (all nurses forums, both ontario second entry as well as ubc forums since i applied there as well). What is it that you are confused with the term professor? It is someone who taught you in the past in one of your university courses as you said; i’m not sure what other meaning a professor would hold so please elaborate.
Edit: given more thought, i suppose it could be a prof who hasn’t taught you but i believe they are looking for someone who can speak to your academic ability.
Thank you very much for replying to this swiftly. I found conflicting information on the Admission Guideline section vs. FAQ section. I am a bit confused if it's okay with me approaching someone with an instructor holding a doctoral degree who happens to be my undergraduate adviser who is not a tenured professor.
For your social science req, what courses did you take to fulfill the req?
Is it okay to add you on fb? If so here's a link http://facebook.com/ryantico19950727
I'm in the same predicament choosing between U of T and UBC. I was wondering if you had decided upon one or if you are still deciding? Any feedback would be helpful.
