Also, congrats to all students who received early offers!
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?

UPDATE: I GOT ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!!!! (on Feb 28th)

are my courses stronge enough for my top 6 average?
I'm in grade 11 rn and I'm wondering if the courses that I'm taking are competitive for university admission:
eng 12 U
cal12 U
physics 12 U
chem 12 U
com tech 12 M
3d rendering M
and I'm taking advanced functions this semester. I'm taking all the pre req for engineering programs for uoft, Waterloo, western and such BUT I don't know whether my course selection is strong enough for grade 12.

1st Year Ryerson Engineering AMA Thread!
Well, the title says it all
To all the grade 12s, I was in the same boat as you last year, wondering about admissions, career and so on. But I am finally onto my next stage of life, studying engineering. Woohoo (have midterms soon, so mixed emotions! :/ )
Anyways, If you guys have any questions related to admissions, student life, commuting, programs, and so on, feel free to post them below. I'll try to answer as fast as I can.

average admission grades
Hello. I am in grade 11 in Ontario. So I was wondering about my average mark for grade 11 and 12. I’ve seen a lot of people saying grade 11 marks don’t matter at all, only for early admission, but other people say universities make decisions based on first semester, second semester midterms and grade 11 marks. My grade 11 average mark is 89 right now but I have slacked off a little bit this year and I’m aiming for aaround 95+ for grade 12. Would there be a high chance for me to get admissions for engineering programs in universities like UofT, waterloo, ryerson, Mcmaster and such?

University Transfer Averages
I've applied to Western Engineering and McMaster Engineering from another university and I understand they treat the averages from other Universities differently than they do HS students' averages. Does anyone know about what the difference in equivalent percentages would be comparing an HS average vs a University Transfer Average?  
I've heard its about 7-8% difference, but I've also heard 4-5% and up to 12% so I am not too sure.  
I currently have an 85.3% average coming from another Engineering Program at another University.
Western Engineering
Just wondering who has got accepted to western for electrical engineering and with what average.

Aerospace VS Mechatronics
As a child, I have been fascinated by aircrafts and spacecrafts. I have always loved the power of flying. However, as I was growing up, I started developing an interest in robotics. Both are related to each other - both are about machines. I always wanted to know how things work. But there's a part of me that wanted to go to the aerospace and a half of me wants to pursue the mechatronics part.
What are the differences? 
- take courses about propulsions
- focused more on how things work

ILC Chemistry
Hi, I'm a high school graduate who wants to do electrical engineering. I need to update my Grade 12 chemistry mark because my day school teacher wasn't good at teaching most of the material (Class average was in the 60's). I'm thinking of taking chemistry through ILC but I have been seeing a lot of mixed review about it. Most reviews being either very good or very bad. My question is, has anyone taken ILC for Grade 12 chemistry and can tell me their experience? What mark did you end up getting and how hard did you work to achieve that mark? Also how long did it take you to finish the course?
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?

uOttawa 2nd Year Mechanical Engineering- AMA!
Hey everyone! I did one of these last year and it seemed to help a bunch of people so I thought it would be good to do one of these again. I'm currently in 2nd year Mechanical Engineering with co-op at uOttawa! Feel free to ask me anything about residence, campus life, living in Ottawa, academics (even outside of engineering), admission, etc etc! Whatever comes to mind! Some background info:

-I play on the quidditch team (it's a real thing and we're fantastic)
-I was in Civil Engineering first year, then switched into Mechanical this past summer
-I originally applied and got in for Electrical and Civil
-I lived in residence first year (go Stanton!) as I'm from the GTA

Ask away! :)
College entry?
Hello everyone,
Will an Ontario College accept you with a failing University transcript? I finished all applications but i'm just worried if I don't get it. I studied sciences in my first year of University but now I applied to an Engineering program in College and my high school average was about 85%. Do you think the Colleges will let me into their program?
Would really like to hear what you have to say about this, thank you.

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

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?
Chances for Admission into General Engineering @ McMaster 2018
Hey, I was just wondering if I can make it into McMaster engineering and if so, when should I be expecting a response?
Here are my current grades with low projections:
English - 90%
Chemistry - 91%
Advanced Functions - 93%
Calculus - 93%
Physics - 97%
Computer Science - 98%
Business Leadership - 96%

UofT Minor
If I am in the electrical engineering program at UofT, would I be able to minor in computer science?
The website says that engineers can choose from 6 engineering minors:
Biomedical Engineering  
Engineering Business  
Environmental Engineering  
Robotics and Mechatronics  
Sustainable Energy
so would I be taking coding courses under the robotics and mechatronics branch?

University of Calgary vs University of Alberta Engineering Coop
Hey everyone, Im from Calgary but I'm stuck between choosing UofC and UofA for Engineering as I have been accepted into both. I am hoping to do Electrical or Mechanical Engineering. Looking for any input or advice from anyone going to UofA or UofC that is doing coop engineering! Thank you!
Chances for Engineering
I applied to Ryerson, Windsor, Guelph, McMaster, Toronto, Waterloo and York.
Mainly for Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering

Grade 12 Marks So Far  
Advanced Functions: 94%  
Accounting: 95%  
English: 80%  
Computer Science: 88%  
Calculus: 87%

I've only gotten Windsor so far......

What are my chances?

Chances for UofT Engineering 2018
With people beginning to get accepted for the first wave in all Engineering programs, does anyone know what the admission average will be like for this year? I'm especially interested in Track One, but I only have a 93% average right now. Anyone who's been accepted already, it'll be wonderful if you took the time to quickly go over your average, ECs, personal profile, and obviously to what program please! 

Side question, is admission average calculated by the 5 pre reqs, or with the addition to another U/M course?
