Hey y'all! Just received a notification that I will be asked to schedule my Second Language Assessment, and was wondering if anyone has taken it already? I know it's quite early, but I heard that they go by province, and since I'm from BC I'll probably be contacted quite late.

Political Science Students: what's your experience like?
Just really wanted some insight into the actual polisci experience as a prospective polisci student. It would be awesome if you guys could answer the following questions based on your experience within your program & anything else you'd like to add/wish you'd known before entering the program.

1. Institute of Study & year
2. Was co-op available? Where have your placements been? What has your experience been like at those placements and how have you been able to grow networking wise from those placements?
3. Other networking opportunities available at your school of study + unique experiences that have been made available to you through your program of study/institution of study (guest speakers, courses abroad, conferences, bilingual program etc.)
4. How have you enhanced your degree (clubs, volunteering etc.) and how has it helped you build skills & experience in the field?
5. Best & worst parts about the program in your opinion 
6. Ways the program has challenged you (critical thinking, essays, assignments etc.)
7. Advice for prospective students 
8. Hardships in the program/institution (profs, courses, lack of student support, financing experience/studies etc.)

Thanks guys! All the best to you

Western, Mac or McGill?
The study is arts. The goal is a high gpa. I know this will be hard at any university, but is McGill as merciless as UofT? I've always loved McGill's campus and city. McGill is also the farthest away from home for me, around 7 hours. What are your thoughts? Thank you.

Humanities and Social Sciences University Applicants for 2018/2019
I've just noticed that there aren't many Humanities or Social Sciences forums. Have any of you already gotten acceptance letters? What are your top choices? What are your prospective majors?
Personally, I would like to double major in History and Political Science. My top choices are UofT, McMaster, and York.
Early Acceptance
Hey! I was wondering what my chances of early acceptance are to UofT and Western for social science. Queens for arts and humanities. Laurier for the Ba in political science and Sussex Law School program? I currently have a 90% average on my grade 12 mid term and a 86% average from my grade 11 top 6 u and m credits.
will i get accepted with...?
will i get accepted to Mcmaster and Western's social science program with a top 6 AVG of 81% ? ik that western may require a higher average but is it possible to get admitted there with an 81

Waterloo, Guelph or McMaster
Im applying to university soon and I’m trying to decide which university is better for Econ. I know that other schools are a lot better for Econ but these schools are the closest to me. What are some pros and cons of each of their programs?  I also want to minor in math

Hi, I took an extra semester of adult school to upgrade my English /overall average and im wondering when i will receive a response/acceptance letter as I already have my final top 6 because you can finish courses much faster than a traditional high school. Ik that my marks will be sent to universities on November 23rd but will i have to wait till  Late Spring 2018 or get a response earlier. My average now is a 83 and i applied to Western, Mcmaster, Laurier and Queens. When will i receive a response?

Queen's university social sciences
Hey everyone! I know that queens is a really good school for science and engineering but I wanted to know if their social sciences program (development studies/Political Science) was as good?
Social Sciences Question. Please help.
Hey guys, so here's the deal. I'm a RPN - Registered Practical Nurse currently working as a nurse and have graduated last year from college - this is a college diploma I have. I want to apply to Social Sciences 3yr program. Admissions for uofO told me I'd be advanced standing since I have a diploma and it's a 2 year completed program. Only thing is that they said I'd have to meet the highschool prerequisite average which is ENG4U . Now the issue is I have it and only got a 68% in highschool as I was really focused on my biology and chemistries to get into nursing school. Cut off for uottawa is 65% for this program. Honestly, what are my chances I'll get in? Apparently it's one of the lowest averages at uottawa . I'm so desperate to get a university degree. :(
How can I find scholarships for 2nd year undergrads in Canada?
Hi All!

I've been struggling to find scholarships available to 2nd Year Art History Undergrads in Canada. I would really appreciate it if someone could lead me in the right direction. I have worked hard to get a 3.7 GPA while dealing with financial stress. I really need a scholarship to get over the financial stress in the next year and focus more on learning and my career goals.

If you have any useful web-links, please feel free to share.

What is the forensic psychology program like at UOIT?
I don't have the recommended grade 12 math and science courses for it. I'm not fond of the first year courses that have to do with criminology, law, and political science. But after that I can choose the courses I like, and I don't know what in psychology exactly I want to study anyway. UOIT is the closest school to me. Everything else is too long of a bus ride. This is the only psychology program they offer and it's their standout program. I just want to know if it's worth it as opposed to going into psychology at Trent where I have more freedom in course selection and a fifty minute bus ride.

Anyone got any *recent* acceptances From Ryerson U? When will I hear back from Admissions?
Hi all!!!!! I applied to Ryerson University and was accepted into their Honors Child and Youth care program, Sociology and Psychology programs. I also applied to their Bachelor of Social Work program but Im still waiting to hear back from them... Is this Normal?

The school sent out my mid term mark (91%) about two-three weeks ago but still nothing... Application is still under review...Any info or advice would be appreciated! I am checking my portal everyday!!!!! So worried about this :(

McGill Arts?
I'm planning to go McGill next year (Arts - Econ and stats). I'd like to get some insight on why McGill is a good/bad idea. All answers are welcome. 
Also, is McGill actually helpful for someone looking for an international career as opposed to a small school with a more reputable individual program? Thank you
Psychology Arts or Sciences?
Just wanted to know which program is more interesting, fun to study, and what each offers in the long run. I'm currently in Gr 11 and having a tough time deciding between the two. I heard that Psych arts is more about holistic practices whereas psych sciences is more about research. I know doing either a BA or BSc in Psych can lead to a Ph.D., but in your own opinion, which is worth doing? I was leaning towards Arts, but I have better grades in Sciences/maths so I picked Psychology since it was a mix of both.
