If you're looking to see if Queen's has gotten your Chancellor's app in, log onto SOLUS, go to financial aid which is on the left hand side, and one of the tabs under that is "View Award Application Status" which is where it'll say if they've gotten your app or not

You can't. It's about you, so answer the questions using examples and ideas from your life. Have people look it over to see if there's grammatical errors and if you actually answered the question and sound interesting/convincing.

I don't know how to explain it other than answer the question tbh. You can tell a mini story type thing, or start of by saying (pretend question is 'why queen's commerce') "I want to attend Queen's Commerce because it's good at/provides me with XYZ. this is of interest/excites me/whatever because in high school I was involved in (related thing) and (what you did/accomplished). Queen's Commerce will allow me to further pursue this interest/build on my experience/whatever."

Those are the two typical ways to answer questions, but there is no 100% perfect formula. I've helped a few kids get accepted in the past, and the latter is what was used most of the time.
Was this helpful? Yes 0

 
There's no real formula for getting in. It's not like you can just post your grades and EC's and ask "will I be accepted?".

Make sure to have a unique PSE and be over that 87% cut-off. The rest is up to chance.

Strange. Mine appears on SOLUS, however, i did not receive an email saying it was received. Are you sure the email was about the MAA and not your OUAC app to Queen's?

Mine came up as deadline date, even though i sent it in much earlier. I think that this merely means you sent it in on time, however, I'm not sure.

I know this guy is a troll, but nobody post your applications online. You can send them privately to other people to review prior, or help out other students, but don't be putting your actual answers out there as you can hypothetically get in trouble for that stuff, and it's just not right.

just a quick question for the chancellor nominees out there.. it says in the MAA instructions that the transcript you send them must be for "all of high school (from grade 9 to current year)". i'm from alberta and because high school here only starts in grade 10, my grade 9 marks aren't on the transcript. will this be a problem??

Yeah we have exams until the 23rd, so people are still working.

But don't count on getting in yet. Literally a few people seem to get in during December, then a bunch of Chancellor nominees get in at the end of January, some more people will get accepted during March/April, then the majority of acceptances come around May.

You guys need to chill.
