For GPA calculations which term (30 credits) do they look at? Right now I’m enrolled in courses so would they look at This year’s term 1&2 once my grades are finalized in a couple of weeks OR term 1 and winter 2017 term 2?

The cut off is December 2018 for grades that would count towards your 2019 application.

Totally! A new school and intense program is intimidating enough!! 

My GPA on my last 30 is a 3.88/4.33, BA in psych, program coordinator for company supporting adults with severe mental illnesses and developmental disabilities. I volunteer for a outreach team supporting exploited woman on the street. Am recently heading the Narcan team for the volunteer organization now but I started this new role after I applied sadly!! 

Wow you have a great application! You will definitely be up there in the candidates they choose 🙂

Hi everyone! I've been following this thread for a while and decided it was a good time to post! This is my first time applying to UBC and it is by far my dream school! I went on a tour last November and it is honestly stunning and everyone is so friendly! I have an Associates of Applied Science in pre-nursing and have been working full time in a pediatric cardiac and transplant surgical floor as a CNA for 3 years. I also volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, at pop up free clinics in my city, and soup kitchens around town, among other things. my GPA is a 3.85/4.0 and a 4.21/4.33. I took my Casper test back in November and have been trying to not check my application everyday! It's so great to "meet" everyone and I hope we hear back soon!

Thank you! I know what you mean about burn out, I had to force myself to not just up and quit! I don't want to get my hopes up, we all have such impressive applications!

Hi Everyone!

    I've posted on here before but I thought I'd introduce myself (since this forum is getting quite popular!). I am currently a fourth-year Health Studies major and Business Certificate student at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. I am applying with a 3.97 out of 4.3 (Queen's Scale), which converts to around a 4.0/4.33 or 86 on the UBC scale, and a 3.84 on the 4.0 scale.

   For my experience, I have worked as a Social Change Specialist at Leave the Pack Behind (an Ontario tobacco control program that helps students quit smoking) for 3 years now, this is a paid position. I volunteered for the Queen's University Blood team, where I worked one-on-one with nurses in the blood clinics. For my fourth-year practicum placement (1 year) I worked with the Canadian Mental Health Association to market their Mental Health First Aid program to students and faculty at Queen's. I also volunteered for Peer Health educator's (organized outreach events with a healthy cooking club/run club/ residence yoga). Finally, I attended the Healthcare and Business conference as a delegate. My extracurriculars aren't really research or hospital-based like a majority of applicants on here, but I hope that won't matter! I definitely had a lot to talk about in this application. 

  My Casper test wasn't that bad. I didn't leave any questions blank which is good. It's always hard to judge how well you do on tests where you don't receive your results back! 

   I'm really hoping to get admitted here because I put a lot of work into my application and I know UBC would give me a fresh start! I also applied to U of T and Western, but my applications for those schools aren't nearly as strong. Fingers crossed for everyone, the waiting game is the hardest part.

Jen
