I am heading to the U. of Calgary for an interview next month (for this school they interview the whole pool during 10 days or so of March). Anyway, to start the interview day, they have you sit and write an essay on site (45 min). This is in addition to the one you had to write for the application. Word on the street is that it has no bearing on admission other than to correlate it to your essay you submitted with your application to see if you really wrote it.

Weird, eh?

kinda troublesome but i guess if they feel like there has been a problem with people not writing their own essays then its an OK way to deal with it.

obviously its hard to match them up because of different writing styles. there are people who love to edit and people who can write their final drafts with their first attempt...

but yeah...i hope you are the latter just so they dont question your writing skills.
