The same thing happened to my friend and she's pretty down in the dumps, don't worry.
It just means you've been waitlisted pretty much, but you'll be one of the firsts they review again in the second round.
This also happened to someone I know last year, he was waitlisted for 2 weeks and then got an acceptance, so just hang on for a bit. :)

Based on your academic record to date, we are unable to offer you admission at this time. We will review your application again when your final grades are available and inform you of our admission decision.

I got a good supplemental, i know a guy with 75 getting in and 76 getting . the 75 guy had a quality of a supp on PAR with me or worse. my term 1 average is 72.5... but after term 2, it's 80-81%... what do you think? I tihnk if your EC shows ur well rounded, you shud have got in already, that means ur ec is only decent if they defer you since ur grades are high

I'm a Sauder student ambassador (i.e. current Sauder student who goes to high schools to talk about Sauder), and I'm sorry to break it to you, but your friend there did NOT get admitted into Sauder with an average of 75 (or 76), unless your friend is really old and got admitted years ago. The minimum cut-off average for Sauder is 84%, which means that Sauder will not even consider your supplemental if you don't meet that number. HOWEVER, that does not mean that you will be admitted once you hit the 84% mark; the admission average last year was 91%.

Heck, it'd be hard getting into UBC Arts with a 75% average. The Arts admission average last year was somewhere in the high eighties.

Hi guys, this is the response I received today.

Degree/Program: Bachelor of Commerce
Your supplemental application is currently under review by the Faculty/School. Once your supplemental application has been evaluated, you will receive written confirmation of our admission decision.

My avg is 95% and my supp app is very well done. I just received an offer of admission to Arts, waiting for Commerce now!

UBC is weird with admissions.. I'm a transfer student hopeful for year two Sauder, and although I have only a 71% average, I have not been deferred and the admissions team said I would know within a week or two

Nah dude, a lot of the deferred applicants actually get accepted later in May, according to what happened last year apparently...

If you don't mind my asking, what was your self-reported average? Are you a BC resident? I'm just wondering because the average necessary for the President's Entrance Scholarship seems to be a bit vague.

Congratulations on your admission.

Hey! My average is 95.5%, but it gets rounded down to 95. I am a BC resident.
To receive the President's Entrance Scholarship, you need to have an min. average of 95%.
