Who gets in? The Truths and Myths of how Canadian Universities Make Admission Decisions
Presented by UBC’s director of undergraduate admissions, Andrew Arida
Grade 11 and 12
grades, self-reporting, personal statements, short answer questions,
extra-curricular activities, and applicant interviews; there is a great
deal of information that can go into admission decisions. This begs a
question: how do Canadian universities use all this information to
determine who gets in? This presentation will provide an overview of
the rationales and decision-making process Canadian universities often
use to make admission decisions. Andrew will also dispel the myths and rumours that often surround the admission process; expect an interactive and lively discussion!
Grade 12 Counsellor Stacey Schwegler will be presenting an up date on University programs and Scholarship beginning at 6 pm.
Seating is limited. Priority to grade 12 parents.
