Apparently admissions have started for international students, I was talking to a girl from the states today who got accepted for arts, 3.97 GPA and a decent amount of ECs. NERVE WRACKING

So i suppose UBC places a hugh emphasis on ECs rather than on grades?

Yeah they made the Personal Profile mandatory this year, so they're putting a LOT of emphasis on it this year rather than just pure grades.

Good luck to you all and feel free to message me if you guys have any questions about UBC!

My mom works there. Last year everyone with 87 got into Arts, and 1/2 of those between 83 and 86 got in depending on the broad based admissions stuff.

Well, i'm kinda worried that as an international applicant who got like ABB for my A levels, i have yet to receive any response from UBC arts :(

I suppose UBC starts giving out acceptance to international applicants very long ago?

I applied for arts (first choice), and science (second choice), but only arts changed. I wouldn't worry too much about it not being changed though. My average is a lot lower than Hikari's (87), so I think it has more to do with when you submitted your application or something.

I also applied for Arts, and that was what changed for me. If it helps, I submitted my application in late December.
