UBC Jump Start

Hello! I just get offer of admission from University of British Columbia and considered to go there earlier. So I see this Jump Start thing in the acceptance package, what are we supposed to write about for the short essay in the application ? How about the LPI (Language Proficiency Index)? What is that? Thank you very much for the help! :)

I don't know about the Jump Start thing, never heard of it.
But I do know a but about LPI.
The LPI is like an English exam.. well, it IS an English exam.
Students who generally don't go very well in English, or think they won't do very well, take it. If you're in the 70s range in English 12 right now, I would take it.
You need a 5? or was it a 4? in order to "pass" and be admitted into UBC if you don't have a 70 as your final mark in English 12.

I think Jump Start is for International students.
