Deadlines-University Applications Edition
Hey guys, do you know when the deadlines are for your applications to university? Your answer might be: "Oh, it starts at the end of the semester." However, that is not the case, my friends. Are you aware that initial applications for universities start in late September/ early October? Therefore, you really need to start preparing. The Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC)
lists several dates about the various deadlines of the application process. For instance, on January 13, 2016, their applications to the university are due; May 27, 2016 is the final day that you will receive a response from any Ontario university. But, take into account that different programs have different deadlines.
Once you have received an acceptance letter from the university, start applying for scholarships. There are thousands of scholarships and bursaries that are available. Most of them go untouched because no one applies to them. Therefore, if you apply to these opportunities, there is a bigger chance for you to win that scholarship; for instance, you can win free tuition for at least 2 years. The only requirement for most of these scholarships is a well-written essay. So, get your English skills ready!
Overall, submit your university applications and scholarship applications on time to prevent such chaotic circumstances. To end this very long (not really) blog post, I would like to advise all of you to do one thing: Save the dates! Also keep in mind that the sooner will always be the better. :)
