IVEY three activities

A photo of akshaypatt akshaypatt
For the three activities I use in my Ivey application, what is more important for my application, an activity in which I displayed more of those four qualities, or an activity in which I would get a better reference from my contact? Does Ivey contact each of your references for the activities?

It's almost definitely better to pick an activity where you displayed better qualities. I don't believe any of my references for any university program were contacted. Getting references is more like a way to eliminate the lazy applicants than an actual way to measure an applicant's abilities.

Hey! Some of my references were contacted!

Ivey will send to the reference all the information you wrote about that activity (i.e. mentored 'X' amount of students, lead "x" event") and they will ask whether whatever you wrote is true or not.
