Victoria College (U of T)

Anyone else have Vic as a first choice? I thought I'd make this thread since there's one for Trin.

I think I may have messed up on the first question on the Profile. It said to list three EC's but I actually described each one. I figured the answer was supposed to be of a length similar to that of the other two questions... Maybe it's a common mistake?

I did that, too. My answer was about 1000 characters. I made a list of three, but underneath each one I wrote a couple of sentences describing how it "enriched" me seeing as they mention that as well. It was really confusing though because they said point form and at the same time, I'm pretty sure 3 lines wouldn't really give them what they're looking for. Oh well, I know a lot of people applying to Vic and they also did the same thing.

Yay! Thank you for your response. That's definitely comforting. I thought exactly the same thing about 3 point-form EC's being an inadequate answer.

Will you be applying to Vic One once application period opens?

LOL, no problem. :P Yeah, it definitely should have been worded differently. I'm applying for Rotman so I can't apply for Vic One, but I have a friend that's applying for the Northrop Frye stream, I think.

Good, I'm not the only one. I also didn't think it would make sense to just list them, why would they give you 2000 characters? Oh well.

I'm going to apply to Frye too.

Vic One in general sounds like it's very artsy which I love. I really hope I get in.

Also, why did you guys pick Vic over Trin?

I applied to Soc Sci and said my area of major interest was criminology.
How about you?

Social Sciences with a major interest in International Relations. A lot of people are telling me to do Trin One for IR, but I want to live in the Vic One House. Also, I'd rather be in Vic One instead of Trin One seeing as I'm applying to Victoria.

hi everyone!
I will be applying to victoria college at the U of T in 2012 and I would like to have a peek at the upcoming admission essays. I understand from talking to friends that you have to write a student profile to be admitted. Does any one what this years questions were? Are they difficult? Thanks so much!

Vic was my first choice.
But I'm from BC, so I didn't have to do the profile.
:cheers:

Thank you! And yes, they did. A pop up message will come up on your Join U of T Portal saying you've been admitted and to which college.

They only received my file yesterday. "This document has not yet been examined to determine if it satisfies one of the required documents. It will be reviewed and updated on this site within 6 to 8 weeks from the date it was received." :bounce:

Congrats! Yeah, I was just bored yesterday in spare so I decided to check all my applications. I barely ever check the portal, so it was lucky that I did.

I have the exact same thing! I thought I screwed something up. Yesterday when I got this error, clearing cache fixed it... but today, absolutely nothing that I do seems to fix the problem D:
