UBC Sauder Acceptance 2011!!!!

A photo of adriankh adriankh
umm I just checked my UBC student center..

Status: Congratulations you have been admitted! You will be receiving a letter from us shortly.

Does UBC Sauder normally give out offers this early? Is this serious? I still can't believe it...

I got my admission last week and I was also VERY surprised. But I'm really excited and I guess Sauder does give out admissions even this early in the year. :cheers:

I was actually a transfer student from first year at university so that's why I was even more surprised :albino: So I'm guessing my average is going to be considerably different from that of what a high school student would normally need to get into Sauder :P

I can't give you a comparison between the two, because I've never been to Queen's before. Personally, I really love Sauder because of all the involvement opportunities. You can come check out the campus since you live in Vancouver!

The Sauder building has a really modern feel to it compared to the other faculties' buildings, and the main hallway (CA Hall in the Henry Angus Building) is always filled with booths for opportunities to be involved in school (in a fun way, of course).

If you do come, you should definitely check out the Canaccord Learning Commons. We have awesome huge flat screen tvs that you can hook your laptop onto. I was playing Starcraft on the huge tvs and it felt sooo good lol We also have a cafe in our building, and Whitespot, Tim Horton's, a pizza place, and another random healthy food place right beside the building.

But you should definitely ask a Queen's student about their school :D It's a good school too! Good luck on your decision.

Hey congrats on getting in! I just got in the other day too! Just being straight up it is unheard of for someone to get into Sauder with an average lower than 92. That's apparently what the lowest average was last year too, you must've had a killer supplemental no doubt to have gotten in once again congrats! Do you mind me asking what the marks were for your English, Math, and two other subjects that you submitted?

Thanks...

Haha, well I don't think I can tell you what my exact average is but I did manage to get an A- (for both overall and core). And even that wasn't easily earned! I wish I could have done better; but I did work hard. Are you a UBC student?

Haha not to be cocky, but my essays were actually like the best I could possibly write!
I mean like even if the two essays are given back to me now, I still can't make it any better!
Anyways, here are my marks for my top 4 courses:
English 12 81%
Math 12 95%
Physics 12 93%
Geography 12 93%

and I'm also taking AP calculus too, but I don't think this did affect their decision though. And CONGRATZ TO YOU TOO!! :)

Umm I would say Sauder is one of the best business schools across the nation, but definitely not the best!

Here is my ranking (IN MY OPINION!):
1. Ivey (don't like the 2+2, but its business program's reputation is the best)
2. Queen's (GREAT PROGRAM! GREAT SCHOOL!my top choice)
3. Schulich
4. Sauder
5. Mcgill
6. Rotman

I know I probably missed out some of the great schools in ontario, like Laurier etc too.. but since I'm from vancouver, these six are like the top and worldwide ones to me!

Actually, I know someone with 84% (minimum cut-off) who got in last year. A lot of my friends got in with an average around ninety. I also know someone with 98% who was rejected from Sauder. Fifty percent of the admission decision is based on grades, and fifty percent is based on the supplemental.

I only know of about 10 people who have received a Sauder acceptance (including the ones posted in this forum). Has anyone else received an acceptance recently? If so, could you please post your average and main ECs. Thanks

My avg is 94.5% and my ECs are stellar (I'm very involved in my school and within the community)

Hey for term 1 i got 72.5 but term 2 is 87 or so, i calculated, average will be 80-81% which is an A- and core is a bit higher.

I spent so much effort and time to make my supplemental really good, do you think i'll get in? I haven't got an offer yet (transfer student from ubco)
