  1. Hi! I received an email that invites me to join the online session “I’ve applied now what?” But the event is fulled. What should I do?

    1. Hi Claudia,
      My apologies for the late reply. Were you able to register for an online session? There’s another session on Wed, March 1, 8:30-10am PST.

  2. Hi,
    I’m wondering if there is an option to change my first choice in my application?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Dave,

      Maybe. It all depends on what you already have on your application, and what program you are interested in having as your first choice. Email us at recruitment.ok@ubc.ca with the details and we will let you know if a change is possible.
