(I use the actual course code for tagging my posts, so if you're looking for say Biology 210, search "BIOL 210" not "BIO 210").
After creeping them on Facebook… how they look quite literally:

Taking a study break to say…I think all us UBC students on Facebook know who this is…his name just keeps on popping up on that page! =P
Anonymous asked: can i still qualify for the scholarships if im a canadian citizen living in the US
The site says Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents of Canada qualify.
If you’re still unsure, send them a question on Twitter, I’ve noticed that they’re pretty good with responding on that account!
Anonymous asked: Does ubc offer distance education for summer semester?
Yup! Only for a limited number of courses though! I took ENGL 301 through distance ed this past summer, and my friend took CLST 301.
I won’t be answering my inbox questions as often as I usually do! I really have to get cracking on studying for my finals and writing a final term paper. I’m so sorry, but Tumblr distracts me with all the fancy and “stab in the chest” posts that I’m so addicted to reading haha.
I hope to be back to regular Tumblr blogging/answering inbox questions on Dec 15th! =P
For Grade 12 students and other applicants: Applications are due on Dec 10th for Canadian students who want to be considered for certain scholarships! Good luck! http://blog.students.ubc.ca/admissions/2013/09/10/mes/
My search engine should bring up application tips if you search up “Applications” or “Application” http://ayyellesrambles.tumblr.com/search/applications
To everyone: Take care, good luck with your exams & assignments, talk to you soon! =P
Over and out,
Anonymous asked: To anon, depending on the Faculty, you might have to write a Personal Profile, so it is recommended that you look at it soon!
Anonymous asked: For full-year housing, you are basically almost always guaranteed/waitinglist number is very small, and most likely get it.
Anonymous asked: i'm in first year sciences and i know i want to switch to either arts or sauder. should i look into that now, and possibly see if i can switch second term, or wait until second year?
It’s not going to be possible to switch faculties in second term, but if you’re really sure about switching faculties for the next year, now is a good time to start thinking about it. I believe applications to switch faculties for the upcoming year close in late January. You’ll want to speak to an advisor at Arts or Sauder ASAP to see which courses you can take in second term in order to make your transition smoother. The later you switch, the more time you will have to spend on your degree, but if that’s something you don’t mind, then I guess you can take more time to sort things out.
Anonymous asked: do you know if it's easier to get second year housing if you apply for just winter term, or full year?
I’d assume that it’s easier to get housing if you apply for full year because UBC will know that someone will always be occupying the room. But I wouldn’t know for sure.
our university > your university
OMG, that’s what that was!!! My friends and I went shopping after handing in our lab report and walked by!!! =P
