I need help with UBC Admissions.

Okay, so when I applied back in the beginning of December, I was set on Commerce. Now I'm not. It was my first choice whereas Arts was my second. I'm not planning on sending in the required supplemental app, so when the deadline passes, will they just disregard my first choice and evaluate me for my second? Do I contact them and say I don't want Commerce anymore or will that message be sent loud and clear when I don't fill out the app?

I have no idea, but I'd say ask your counsellor at school. Even if they don't know, they can at least help you figure out who to contact at UBC.

The cut-off is raised for second choices, so it's probably best to call them and tell them Arts is your first choice. But keep in mind that UBC offers an Economics major in both Arts and Commerce.

You want to be sure to change it, because UBC raises the average that they admit at for the faculty of arts for the people who select it as their second choice, I heard.
