UBC Sauder acceptance

A photo of Vangolf Vangolf
I am currently having an average of approximately 90~ish?!?! (Low to mid 90's)
I am seeking your truthful opinion on my chances of getting acceptance into UBC - Sauder Commerce Program
However, my English(78%)is pulling my average down significantly but i am still getting a 90's average.

Does UBC take English course into top priority?
I am wondering what are my chances of getting into first year acceptance:!:
Have anyone gotten any acceptance from UBC already?
I have seen many people getting acceptance in other university but not UBC. Have they sent out their yearly acceptance?

I've applied to Sauder too with around the same average, low 90's.. I think you do have a good chance of getting into Sauder grades wise. I'm not in UBC but from what I've read on this forum,it really depends on how well you wrote your Personal Profile. Apparently it's worth 50% of the evaluation and your grades are the other 50. I also heard that they reject people with 98% averages, and also accepted people with high 80's.. So I think it really comes down to your Personal Profile. Not many have gotten accepted as far as I know. International students have though, so depends on your location I guess?
Hope I've helped :D

They don't send out acceptances until mid April unless you're an international student, regardless of how amazing your application is.

How about other province transfers? And which university will you attend out of the one's accepted? I would not chose Rotman if I were in your shoes.

I'm not too sure about transfers, you might want to call them and ask about that yourself. Depending if I get into all my programs, my final decision will be between UBC, Math/CA and Queens Commerce.

Speaking from personal and working experience with the undergraduate office, they do send out acceptances before mid-April. Me and my friend got accepted around mid-March last year. Reason being might be we've had pretty good applications? lol ohh and we are both from local Vancouver!!

My average was not exceptionally high: 91% so I assume my EC's were pretty descent? lol

Btw just by meeting with the staff at the undergraduate office today, they have only admitted 20 domestic students so far.

Hey, I live in Vancouver, and I've almost completed the IBDP with mid-30's marks (excluding bonus).

I've been accepted to my 2nd choice, Bachelor of Management at UBCO. I have also just received an acceptance to Sauder, my first choice, so they have begun sending out acceptances!

Aren't you also affected by the recent job action in BC? When did you apply to UBC Sauder?

Hey congrats!

Our situations really are similar haha. Except I'm not accepted yet.. :(

Mind if I ask what was your mark exactly? Out of 42. And is that the only mark that you sent to UBC? Cause I had 35/42 at first and then sent in grades of 38/45 (but I'm not sure if they've seen that yet).

Also, does anyone know how the admissions works? Is there like a second round, or is rolling basis from now on or what?

My average is about the same between 90-92% but i'm kinda worried cause I hear it's hella competitive! I feel like my Personal Profile was pretty good though :/ Do people with low 90's usually get into Sauder?

I was told by the advisor that 90-91% was the middle of the bell curve. Many students who apply have that academic average. So if you fall in that category, your personal profile will determine your fate.

Hey guys! I just got accepted to Sauder!! I'm a BC student, NOT in the IB program, but I take several AP courses. In case you guys want to compare what are the chances of your admission, my top 4 grade 11/12 completed courses have an average of around 92-93%. My EC's consist of several leadership role (in clubs and community), some volunteer in the community, like helping the poor and seniors, and a sports team. Apparently, they didn't send out the news through email; I checked my SIS account to see my admission.

Are there any conditions? Such as maintaining a certain average.

I haven't clicked accept yet so I don't know what the conditions are going to be. I'm waiting for their letter of offer before I click accept. Plus, there are still some universities that haven't given me an offer yet.

And to guccimane, ehhhh 88% is on the verge... your supplemental should be REALLY good if you are to be admitted, in my opinion.

Sauder gave me an offer but SFU still haven't yet haha...I know Beedie already sent out offers for sure. Plus, this is only round one and it just started on thursday. Is 90% your top 4 grade 11 or 12 completed courses? Or are you from outside of BC?

Well, some people took acelerated programs in highschool or they completed some courses in summer so they have their grade 12 courses mark. As of right now, UBC can only see your grade 11/12 completed course because ministry of education only sent those grades in. It's going to be in May when UBC will receive your term 2 marks.
With 90% and decent EC's you should be on the border line. You can't do anything now anyways so might as well enjoy yourself haha.

I was accepted with an 86% average (32 IB total). As long as you're above the cut-off, it's the supplemental app that really matters.
