  1. Hmmm quick question. A friend of mine was waitlisted and confirmed his name on the waiting list. Anyone have an idea when they'll get back to him? If he doesn't get in he'll go to another uni that's already accepted him, but he wants to know how long he'll have to wait before they give him an answer (he hopes it'll be before the deadline for replying to the other uni passes). I, on the other hand, still have a big fat DECISION PENDING on my application status page Why's it taking so long ahhh
  2. Hmm...like Ashika, our IB coordinator ran everything (ToK Essay, EE, WLs) through turnitin.com before mailing the stuff to IB. As far as I know IB doesn't receive soft copies of your work, so if the IB catches you plagiarizing then I assume it's because the examiner was suspicious and decided to check.
  3. If you can actually see the Word 2007 icon anywhere, try right-clicking and clicking on Run as administrator...it worked when I had the same problem with Photoshop..if not, I'll dig around some more..
  4. Interesting. I'm just curious to read these 'sexist' ahadith so if it's in your capacity, I'd appreciate it if you refer me to them
  5. I went ahead and bought both this past summer. The course companion is helpful in that it gives data-based questions, which I would not be able to access elsewhere. Otherwise, the study guide would be your best choice; it summarizes everything you need to know in about a page or so haha.

  7. My English teacher offered to discuss and critique V for Vendetta with us for creativity hours, and my CAS coordinator approved. I'm not sure, however, that just watching the movie should/will count. I know this isn't exactly a suggestion, but I thought I'd give you a heads up...
  8. We've to have at least four different activities under each category, but there are no combo requirements. But everyone I know who has to combine two or more elements of CAS usually does that as part of a school-organized project because they make it easy for them to meet the requirements.
  9. My IBC would NOT let me take Studies because I'd taken precalculus in 10th grade (note: I must say I bombed the class but she went, "psssht, must've been a big misunderstanding." Yeah, I misunderstood my way into failure ) Some universities recognize Studies, but others don't. I'm planning on a polsci major and, like you, thought that SL would be useless; I decided against it because a) I thought I might regret it and b) MY IBC WOULDN'T LET ME. I keep thinking: what if the only difference between me and someone else is that s/he took math SL? But that shouldn't make a difference with majors like IR/polsci, so I guess it shouldn't hinder your chances of acceptance.
  10. Have you asked him? If he doesn't approve then I'm afraid you can't count those hours. I don't see why he wouldn't though...
  11. Again, depends on your coordinator. Mine would accept it as long as a) it's 30 mins or more and b) you are supervised.
