I've decided not to bother filling out the SFU supplemental, but I must say... I was wondering this as well. Their descriptions are not at all clear in terms of exactly what they want for this section.

I did my supplemental application, and basically, i checked what i was involved and wrote a description/paragraph about my involvment in this activity.
Ex. Athletics-swimming (And u fill out the time, and organization)
Description: just briefly write a paragraph about ur involvement, like what u have learned, ur accomplishments, etc.

I got accepted just last week. I wrote descriptions for all of them as I had activities for all of the sections. My recomendation is if you have activities for each section fill in each section as it could be the difference of getting admission and not getting admission

Can you elaborate on your EC's and marks. Also did you max the word count (280-300), of course writing suitable descriptions.

The only one that I think I might skip is entrepreneurship.

in terms of marks, my marks were as follows
History 95
Math 88
English 91
Chemistry 91

extra curriculars wise I did the supplimental in febuary but i believe the max amount of words is 250 correct me if i am wrong. From research UBC and SFU both really like people who show leadership in some way. So that really was the main focus for me on my supplimental for both SFU and UBC. Also obviously the more business oriented your extra curriculars are the better. Skipping Entreprenurship might not be wise cause SFU really looks at what experience you have in business already as an indivigual and obviously Entreprenurship is the best way to show that off. Dont worry if you supplimental isnt spectacular as most people who have atleast a 88 percent average with a ok supplimental got into SFU. Good luck man!!!

I got in last week, I had 87%. Submitted first term avg. Is there anyway to check what you wrote? My essays weren't that great though, I kinda half-assed those. I'm sure if your marks are at least an 86 and your supplemental is decent, you'll get in.

I submitted and finished writing my supp a few minutes before the deadline so the quality wasn't that great. Got in a week after(I think. this was checking the sis account) with a 95 average.
