I'm a Schulich leader nominee, and have to write a 600 word pgraph on why I would make a good leader or whatever. How are other people tackling this topic? It's hard to make yourself seem awesome without sounding braggy...thoughttss?

Two different things. Shulich is a name for a lot of things.

Yes, it's for people going into the STEM areas in a select list of schools across canada...it's pretty legit- 60k!

Would you care to explain what the full topic is. and is it supposed to be a 600 word essay or paragraph? lol. I might possibly get nominated by my school for this. What was your grade average by the way?

Once you are nominated you get sent an email with all of the application info. The only question you have to answer (along with basic contact info) is literally:
'Write an essay of up to 600 words describing why you feel you would make a great Schulich Leader'

I'm not loving my current essays..don't know how to strengthen it to read better...
And my GPA is 98% atm.

Do you have to log all of your activities or is just basic contact info and the essay?

I'm waiting to find out if I'm the nominee for my school or not.

You only need to do that 600 word essay. There is also a 250 word essay on financial need, but it's optional. Thassit!
Deadline for being recognized as a nominee is Jan. 13 though, so make sure you talk to someone about it.

I'm also a Schulich nominee (gpa 96%) and I'm in the same boat as you so I'll be monitoring this thread often.

How should I write the optional essay?

Hello, I am a Schulich nominee of my school too. Just out of curiosity, how is the gpa calculated?
My marks:
Chemistry 12 - 99
Math 12 - 100
Physics 12 - 100
Calculus 12 - 100
AP Calculus AB - 100
English - 87

Will they only look at my grade 12 marks? I've been lazy all these years until now to be honest.

Mine reads almost like a self recommendation/reference letter, which I find weird, but it's kind of what they're asking for.
I just don't think that's enough to set me apart from the hundreds of other candidates!
Also- for the head shot, it can be below 1MB- I emailed them.

I was bested by one with more EC's beat me. I still think I should have gotten it cause im currently the highest gpa in the whole school.
