Order of Application Choices

I've applied for UBC Science as first choice and UBC nutrition as second choice. Now that I think about it, I don't think I could get into science. So I was wondering if they'll give priority to those who choose nutrition as first choice (regardless of those who have it as second choice having a higher average) or is it solely based on your average?

Holy, are you sure you're not stalking me?! LOL
That's EXACTLY what I did..
and I've been thinking the same thing....
They'll always look at your first option. They'll only look at your second option after they've given out acceptances and you don't get accepted into sciences.
I've been thinking about getting them to change my program to Arts and slowly making the transition into science...

Don't they raise the cut-off for second choices?

Ah, that's what I'm worried about. I heard they only do this for Arts. I've already changed my choices once, do you think they'll let me do it again? :(

I don't think they'll say no to you but I don't think they'd be too happy with your indecisiveness.
So think about it clearly and carefully before you make changes again.

On a side note, did you call them to ask them to change your program?

I emailed them asking if I was able to change it.
They said they will only allow me to do it once.
So I wonder how strict that rule is.. :S

Oh, well, in that case..
If they made it clear that they will only allow you to do it once, I don't think you have any other choice but to wait and pray you will get in.
