  1. Hey, I’ve applied to UW, Carelton and Ryerson. I’m super stressed about the Waterloo interview. How is everybody preparing for it?

  2. Yeah it’s my top too. I honestly think the interview thing should be easier than the precis, I’m more worried about it. I was actually thinking about the mock interviews with my friends thing too, but I’m guessing its best to know all your favorites….Its kinda scary considering how it varies so much!!!!!! How many pieces are you doing in your portfolio?

  3. My portfolio is a pretty different because of my interests. I’m aiming for about 12 pieces including a piano piece, preferably more, but I also want to include on top of that some high school art, which may not count if they ask….. Did you get invited for an interview at ryerson? And yeah it’s nice to see someone else trying for this too.

    I went to the open house in November, I don’t think I’ll go on the 9th, but I love the area and the building too its so cool. Are you trying to connect your works together into a theme?

  15. I GOT AN INTERVIEW AFTER ALL!!!!!

    So long story short, I was home schooled up through grade 11, and because I didn’t have any official grade 11 english marks, waterloo didn’t accept me. (I’m doing english second semster) I was supposed to tell this in the extra reasons but I put it in the wrong extra reasons (they honestly all looked the same??) so they missed it on the application. They reviewed my application again after I asked Ms. Woolcott ( who told me the lack of English wasn’t an issue in the first place at the open house) and offered me an interivew! So happy and thankful!!!
