mid 80s Communication, Art & Tech mid 80s Applying to Post Secondary School UBC: Broad Based Admission Academic Profile + Personal Profile = ENTRANCE (admission course mark average) (full length answers to prompts) A Personal Profile requires CAREFUL, REFLECTIVE THOUGHT in every answer. Focus less on listing / describing activities. Focus instead on what you have learned through these experiences. You.ubc.ca/admissions/howtoapply/personal-profile

UBC Personal Profile 4-7 Questions, depending on program Examples of past questions: 1. Tell us about an experience, in school or out, that taught your something about yourself and/or the world around you? 2. Be it inside or outside of the classroom, what have you done to challenge yourself intellectually? Describe an issue, topic or area of study that you have investigated or pursued? 3. Explain how you responded to a problem and/or an unfamiliar situation. What did you do, what was the outcome, and what did you learn from the experience 4. Describe up to 5 activities that you have pursued in 1 or more of the following areas: leadership/group contributions; academics; sports; creative & performing arts; work; service to others. Please outline the activity and describe how it affected you or others. 5. . Tell us more about one of the activities you listed above by explaining what your goals were, what role you played and what you learned in the process. (200 words)

UBC Personal Profile Explain how you responded to a significant challenge that you have encountered and what you learned in the process. (200 words) At the first of my volunteer work in the old folks home, the people there were distant. They just thought what I did was just a show or to finish the work made by my school. I just kept going there every week and did what I could do. Finally, all the people are happy to see me when I get there. It may be hard to get along with the others. But if I can show my patience and sincerity to them, I will succeed in the end. Moreover, remember to be honest. UBC Personal Profile Explain how you responded to a significant challenge that you have encountered and what you learned in the process. (200 words) During the last few years my biggest challenge has been to find my direction. This became even more important during my last two years

of secondary school. I knew that what I wanted to do and what I ultimately feel that I should do, is write, but it can be hard to commit to an art form when there are so many things worth devoting ones time to. It was incredibly difficult for me to reconcile my desire to tell stories with my desire to affect my community in a much more tangible way. UBC Personal Profile (cont.) I felt for a long time that the act of writing would not and could not influence someone as positively as the cure for a disease or childcare and that it might be seen as a frivolous choice. Within the last six months, however, I have come to realize that stories are imperative to our survival and our relationships with one another. It is how we attempt to be remembered, how we teach our children, how we teach ourselves and, most importantly, how we share. Stories ward off loneliness, and I feel perfectly happy committing to that cause.

UBC Personal Profile The critical factor is how the applicant can explain how he was able to learn and grow from experiences he has had. REFLECTIVE THOUGHT CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE! ** Two references will also be required, one of which must be in connection with an activity listed and one must be a school official.
