Need some advice, I am an IB student.

I have received offers from UBCO in 1st week of Feb for applied science but yet to hear from UBCV. I actually want to go to UBCV & not UBCO (My 2nd choice).

Does anyone know if UBC V offers have been out, especially for applied science?

Hello. There is some confusion here.
UBC does not give out offers for both of them. They only offer one of them. UBC asks you to rank the choices (for example first choice and second choice).
They will initially consider for your first choice. If they decide to offer you your first choice, than they will no longer look at your second choice. If they decide not to offer you your first choice, than they will consider your second choice.
You can confirm this somewhere in the portals.

The same applies for McGill.

Toronto is different. They consider all choices simultaneously, and one can get multiple offers at different campuses.

hi i'm new to the thread!
i applied to uoft (utsc mib, utsg social sciences, utm commerce) and mcgill (arts, commerce) in november. so far i've gotten offers for uoft social science and utm commerce (with scholarship), and did my mib interview about a month ago (still waiting for results).
does anyone know when i can expect to hear from utsc regarding their decision? the interviewers told me they'd be giving me a response in late january / early february but i still haven't heard back from them.
also, has anyone heard back from mcgill for b com or b arts? the applicant portal isn't that user friendly so i'm worried i left out some details in my application...

I did my undergrad at UBC’s Okanagan campus so many I can clear this up a bit. Officially, the university assess you for your first choice and checks your second choice if unsuccessful. However, UBC is the master of unofficial and frequently assess both concurrently (especially if both campuses are involved). There is a current push to raise the academic reputation of the Okanagan campus by staggering acceptances, and offering competitive scholarships. If they want you for a program, it’s not as rare as you’d think to have your second choice offer a spot before your first choice. What I can also say is that the UBC applied science program in Vancouver is incredibly competitive. The quality of education in the Okanagan is on par (though the degrees at each campus are technically different (despite what the university recruiters like to claim)) but it’s not in the city which is a draw back for some. Can answer questions if there any any.

Thanks, @WhyJustRun?, this explains why I got an Okanagan offer in 10 days of applying, my preferred need stream of Applied science is not in Okanagancampus so let me wait for the Vancouver campus.

When you said Vancouver is competitive, which league you will put it as they do not have a min grade requirement for IB international, what was the stats for your batch?

I am in IB & an international student

I would like to help but I believe everyone in this thread is an undergraduate applicant. Moreover, I imagine all of us have precious little knowledge about postgraduate applications.

Med school applications are relatively early. Late September to early October. But I’ll warn that of the 17 med schools, only a portion take international students and generally the admission requirements are higher for international students and those from outside the province the med school is in. Admission rates are low to begin with and the University of Calgary has admitted that the admission process could be random and it wouldn’t affect the quality of their incoming class.
