Western Engineering Acceptances 2018
Hi there, I applied to Western Engineering and my grade 12 marks are as follows:
English 85% (final)
Advanced Functions 82% (final)
Physics 90% (final)
Chemistry 90% (final)
Data Management 93% (final)
Calculus 88% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
Biology 94% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
History 94% (Estimation, have not received midterms yet)
English, Advanced Functions, Physics, Chemistry and Calculus are all prerequisites, and assuming 94% in either Biology or History is my next highest mark for my 6th grade 12 course, (my top 6 including the prerequisites becomes an average of 88.17%)
Does anyone know the cut-off for engineering at UWO last year?
Will I be accepted? (I could not fill out the CONNECT profile for engineering because I applied after the deadline for this optional form). Will it hurt my chances?
If anyone has been accepted already, what was your average and break down of marks by course?
Thanks :)

Let's start a thread for us to talk about our questions, share averages, extra curriculars, and even talk about our feelings right now going through the application process!  Good luck to everyone applying this year!

Ryerson Engineering 2018 Admission
I have already got into York, UOIT and Centennial college for electrical engineering but still waiting for ryerson for Undeclared Engineering, which is my first choice.
Has anyone already got into ryerson engineering and with what gr12 average?

Sheridian College - Chemical Engineering Technology
Hi everyone, I currently have all of the prerequisites for this program in my planner.
I had a few questions and was wondering if anyone who has token a program in Chemical Engineering Technology at this or a similar college has had trouble finding employment after graduation.
Also if anyone knows what the difference is between this which is a 3 year program for an Advanced College Diploma rather than a bachelors at a University? 
I know that this program qualifies you as an Engineering TECHNICIAN and not an Engineer so does his also make a difference in hiring prospects for an employer??
This is the link to the program for more information.
Thanks for any help!!!!

Also, congrats to all students who received early offers!
Engineering admission 2018
I have applied for undeclared engineering at ryerson without knowing how competitive this program might be compared to other engineering programs... Is this program more competitive and thus harder to get into for a high schooler? Please let me know down on the comments. Thanks

Are 3 year engineering programs BS?
So I'm in grade 12 and am going to be taking all the prerequisites for a program at St Clair college for the program "chemical laboratory technology" however, I am wondering from anyone of expirence with this or a similar engineering program if it is hard to find a job after graduation. I'm a bit skeptical that it is a 3 year program for only an advanced college diploma rather than a Bachelors. Other colleges in Ontario have this program aswell 
Here is the link if you want more information 
Or google search St Clair college Chemical Labratory Technology
Any advice to whether this is a good and credible program would be appreciated ?

Queen's Engineering 2018 Acceptances
Hello!  I was wondering if any of the high school class of 2018 has heard back from Queen's engineering and if you have, what was your top 5 average?? :)

I was also wondering if I have any chance of being admitted if my marks are....
AP Chemistry: 88% (final)
AP Physics: 92% (in progress)
AP Calculus: 94% (in progress)
English (not AP): 90% (in progress)
AP Statistics (data management): 95% (final)
Average: 91.8%

Edit: turns out I actually have a 92 in physics :))
Also, this doesn't go into the calculation of my average but if it helps I have a final mark of 93% in Advanced Functions

My ECs are decent, and I wrote all my AP's on my PSE so Queen's will know that I took them.  I would say that my PSE is average, maybe slightly above average, although I know that this is very subjective. This was only my first submission average so hopefully I will be able to get it to 92.8% at least by April.  Do you think I could possibly get in?

Can I get in!!!!!????:(
What's up boys. I am currently enrolled at Burhamthorpe Collegiate Institute. My average this semester is pretty decent, sitting at a 59.333%. I know this exceeds some of the averages at the top engineering school such as waterloo but I have extraordinary extracirruclars such as male prostitution, abortion enthusiast, and webcumming. I have recently acquired 62 matches on tinder being my all time high. 
What are my chances for engineering at Canada's top universities?
Questions about 2018 Engineering Admission !!!!
I am currently in gr 12 and I applied to the following universities for the faculty of engineering.
* Queen's University
* Ryerson
* York
These are my GR 12 marks that I used for may application:
English: 86  Advanced Function: 76  Physics: 94  Chem: 67  Data management: 81
Philosophy: 91  Bible: 90
Yes, I totally bombed my Chem this year and got an average of 82.5, excluding Bible...
DO u think I have a chance of getting accepted??? Please Let me know down on the comments and, if u already got into any of those universities for engineering, what were your gr 12 marks?

Chemical engineering
Hi yconic, I have been interested in the field of chemical engineering as I enjoy physics and chem and am pretty skilled in mathematics. My grades usually range for low-mid 80s (I got an 84 in chem grade 11 and am doing grade 11 physics right now with math). What uni programs are good for this field

Also are there any other programs that involve chem and physics that you would recommend?

Carleton vs. Ryerson - Aerospace Engineering
Is one better than the other for any reasons? I live in Toronto so Ryerson would be closer bu the thing is I would need to travel an hour each day in order to get there rather than a shorter travel distance in Ottawa.

Alternate Offer for Engineering at U of T
Hello guys,
I recently got accepted to my second choice for u of t engineering, which is chem. My first choice is Engsci though... Do I still have a chance to get an offer from Engsci? I mean...I still have time to bring my average up...

Hello Everyone, I'm currently in Grade 11 and I plan on going into the field of engineering. My top 2 are Electrical and Chemical Engineering. My overall average currently is 91%, next year I predict of getting an average of 93-95%. What universities should I consider? I know Waterloo is the best in terms of engineering, but I'm not sure I can get in anymore due to my grade 11 average. Which universities should I consider? Thank you!!

Waterloo: Honours Science
I am currently in Grade 12. I applied for Chemical Engineering at Waterloo, but have Honours Science as a backup, just in case.

My current grades are:

Challenge and Change: 93
History: 87
Advanced Functions: 84
Physics: 87

My rounded average is an 88. I know for engineering, I basically have no chance due to my advanced functions and physics. But I learned I am well above the cut-off for Honours Science. Do you think I'll get an early acceptance for Honours Science? If so, when?

Universities that accept private school
I am planning to take private school for chemistry. Will university still accept that as my top 6 courses or will they have some conditions to it?

University Acceptances 2018 (Engineering)
Just wondering if any of you guys were accepted into any engineering programs yet... I knew that Waterloo doesn't send them out until March, but how about for other universities (Queen's, U of T, McGill, Carleton, etc)? List your programs and the university you got accepted into ^_^

P. S. Anyone heard back from Queen's Chancellor's yet?
