Is it out already??

I just applied on Sunday and waiting on the confirmation email. Will it tell me where it is? And if somebody has gotten it, then could someone please tell me the topics?

Yes, I did mine in November. The e-mail should tell what you to do.

You have to list (up to) 5 activities, 5 volunteering experiences, and 5 work experiences you've had throughout high school. Then you have to do a 300 word essay on what your goals are at Queen's and beyond.

Zion, approximately how long did you have to wait for Queens to email you? Can you also PM the questions? Thank you and good luck on your applications!

That's all the detail I can recall, sorry. (The essay question is as I stated; it's pretty general). They also ask for a reference so you might want to think about that if you haven't.

A few weeks. But then it took me like two weeks to actually submit the PSE because they were having technical difficulties. Good luck on yours too!

Also, I applied to Computing, so you guys might be referring to questions I didn't have (that are exclusively for Commerce).

But that's all the PSE I did had on it. No other questions.

These are the Commerce specific questions:

1) In 300 words or fewer (approximately 1950 characters with spaces), briefly describe one time when you acted as a leader of a team or group, and another time when you acted as a member of a team or group. Tell us what you have learned about yourself in both roles - as a leader and as a team member.

2) In 300 words or fewer (approximately 1950 characters with spaces), please describe the steps you have taken to ensure that Commerce/Business is an appropriate field of study and potential career for you.

Also, if you applied for a Chancellor's Major Entrance Scholarship they don't ask you to do a PSE. I was e-mailed last week saying that I do not have to complete one because I was nominated by my school.
If you check on your myQueensU account it should say on your To-Do list what you have left to do with your appplication. It would also indicate if you would have to do the supplementary essay.

The info on this thread is quite accurate. I would only add that the preferred PSE submission deadline is Feb 15 but the official dealine is March 1 (as noted above). The earlier submission allows the Commerce Admission Committee to read the PSEs earlier. Every qualified Commerce PSE is read by 2 readers so that is a lot of reading!
