wait for deca?

A photo of ac123 ac123
I was thinking of waiting for deca provincials to happen in mid february so I can write that i moved on to internationals if i do make it through. So i wanted to know should i just hand in my supplementary's for uni's or is it smart to wait till mid feb and then hand it in after deca? (if i dont make it then ill just write deca provincials on the application and submit it)

well it depens on when your apps are due.. if you can wait for deca-then i say ya, wait (are your chances good of getting in to icdc?) if you're talking about queen's PSE though.. thats cutting it close right/ cuz it's due date is feb 15 and deca ends feb 14...

(you dont get extra standing for handing in ur pse 2 weeks early)

yeah i was talking in terms of laurier. laurier's ABS has a deadline in April, obviously i wont wait that long but I was hoping of submitting it on feb 15-16 for laurier? And yeah i do think i have a good chance because my partner and I came in top 3 for best presentation for regionals. so would it add weight to my ABS if I do make it to interntionals and write in it in my ABS?

yes internationals would add weighting every biz school knows what deca is and internationals is not easy..would add more weighting thatn something like president of photography club, cause of its relevance to your field....but yeah the timing kind of sucks in terms of essay deadlines, i had this problem last year...but i never stood a chance in hell past provincials so i didnt have to include it lols

Sorry if I sound ignorant, but if you have the ability to make it into ICDC, why would you even need to submit the ABS? Shouldn't your grades justify your performance? (Since I assume you'll know a lot about business, that would equate to high business course marks. Good speaker, good English marks etc).
