Did you complete the video essay part ?
I submitted on Nov 16. Still the status is just submitted (It is yet to be reviewed). I am yet to complete the video essay too.

Yes, it has. I think they introduced it recently.
You'll get a separate mail to complete that also.

As soon as you submit the app, you get a mail with details of how to do the video questions. You can d o that later, but the app is considered complete only after that. It has been around for 2 to 3 years now.
I submitted mine 5 to 6 days back and completed the videos on the weekend, at leisure. Takes about 15 min in all for the video bit.

I did get an email but it only expressed gratitude for submitting the application. No talk of any video essay. May be i will get that mail soon. I hate video essays especially if u have to shoot outdoors. Had a hard time doing that for Sauder.

I guess you'll get a link with the instructions for the video essay. The Schulich site mentions video essays, introduced in Jan of this year (not sure if it has been around for 2-3 years).

Yes i got the link to the video essay... One of the practice questions asks.."tell about your favourite quote" and i seriously went blank. don't know if some question like this comes up then what to do.

regarding the outdoor shoot for Sauder, no it wasn't a requirement.. I did it that way..but never knew it was so difficult to shoot outdoors with soo much background noise

And that's the point I think. They want to ascertain if we are as good as we have say in our written essays. :P Most good universities are moving to video essays as there are a lot of the applicants who get help from consultancies to write their essays. My house is so poorly built acoustically that I practically hear the flushing of toilets from the next house :P So I guess it would not have made any difference for me if I had shot it outdoors haha.. Add to it the constructions happening around my house, I am in a war zone.
And the worse part is, for Sauder atleast we had the option to shoot and upload, so I used a digital camera. For Schulich and Alberta, it is going to have to be the Webcam! :'(

I am sorry, the video part did start this Jan and not 2-3 years back. Got it mixed with some other school! :)
Schulich can be done by webcam, since they ask 2 random questions from their pre-recorded questions and you get 45 seconds to prepare and 90 to answer. Very much like Rotman's. Take it easy. The 45 seconds is adequate time for thought, unless you start writing down stuff! And like sbdy here said, THIS is a great differentiator, when it comes to separating the 'coached' candidates from those doing their own stuff.
Preparing using 2-3 sample questions (understand there are a max of 5 available) and then getting on with it seems a good way to go :) I quite enjoyed the video questions (don't know why they call it essays though!) :) Good luck !

This is a peak time and they'd be getting a lot of applications. The normal turnaround time is 2 weeks, and at peak times like this it might take a little longer. Nothing to be worried about. All the very best mate.

Unlikely to hear back till end of the month, since they have R1 on 15 Jan. I had met Graham Sue twice and from what he said, they would most likely let the early birds know a little before R1, I guess. Good luck :)

That is an easy one. Just sit for half an hour quietly and think of all questions anybody can ask you and link them to your goals and what you have said about yourself in every part of the App. Will fit in beautifully!
good luck! :)

Don't think there is, but you'd get a confirmation if you emailed the adcom. No harm in trying, if you really think the statement is important to be a part of your essays.
