UBC First Choice and Second Choice Admission

A photo of WD50 WD50
My first choice is BCommerce and second choice is BApplied Sciences.

The thing is, I now want to go to Applied Sciences.

Do you know whether UBC will admit someone for their second choice even though that person has not refused or has not been refused for their 1st choice?

thanks

If you get into the commerce program, you won't be considered for applied science. You can only get accepted to one program at UBC. general science was my first choice, while general arts was my second choice. Since I was accepted to science, I didn't get into arts so I would suggest you contact them to change your order of preference.

not entirely true. Some people get an offer for their second choice 1st because their first application is week, then get an offer to the 1st choice after(people decline offers, etc.)

i know someone who accepted arts before getting an offer to commerce really late though. june/july i think

A lot of my friends are in this situation.
They got into their second choice but are still waiting on their first choice.
So there is a possibility that you can still get into your second, but once you get accepted into your first choice program, I doubt they will consider you for your second unless there's extra spots at the end of the year when people accept/decline offers.

I got into second choice, thanks everyone.

First choice is still under review, seeing I only submitted in my marks a couple of days ago.
