I just got my acceptance the other day for BA Honours in Psych, and a second one for English. 
Carleton is my first choice for sure because I'm drawn to the city of Ottawa and the campus looks like a community, and a ton of fun.
I love to have fun and meet new people so i want to know if anyone got accepted yet either? not just BA but other programs too :)

also I heard the social scene can be dry but its what you make it. I can't wait, my best friend and I are both planning to go here. So excited!

Grade 12 Physics for UTM????

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC
Hi! I applied for Life Sciences at UTM and I plan to attend this university in the fall of 2015. I'm currently taking Grade 12 Physics, but I find it extremely difficult to understand the concepts and I'm worried it will bring down my overall average. 

I was wondering if I should continue to take physics (though it isn't required or recommended at UTM) or if taking this course will help me in the future at this program at UTM.

I have no spares currently and my workload this semester is pretty heavy but I'm concerned that I will need to take physics in university next year (and I would rather get it over with if necessary). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hey guys :)

We are so close to applying.. and I saw similar threads to this over the past couple years and thought why not do it again?
So if you're interested in going into an engineering program...

1. What discipline(s) are you considering?
2. What schools are you considering? (in order if you'd like) 
3. What do you think your top 6 average will be?

Additionally, if you are in university right now for engineering and see this, please post about where you go, your program, the student life, and anything else you'd like to share, as well as what your average was when you were accepted! That will be greatly appreciated :)

1. Biomedical or Chemical
2. Waterloo, McGill, Queen's, McMaster
3. aiming for around a 95%, in the mid 94%'s right now!

Look forward to hearing from all you other engineering hopefuls! :)

Hey guys, I'm getting a little worried. I applied to UofT ECE and finished my SPF January 12 but my application status still says "Pending Review" and in the engineering portal under Application Received it is still blank. I'm wondering if there are any other Ontario applicants to ECE what the status of your applications are. Thanks!

How does McGill pick your top marks/courses for your average calculation if you are doing IB?

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC
I am currently in my last semester of IB. I have just resubmitted my marks for the second round at McGill. However, I am still at a loss to understand which courses they select for the average calculation. I have marks for the end of each of the last three semesters, where some are slightly higher depending upon the term, yet they are marks for all the same courses. For example I have three math marks for Math SL ranging from 90-97? Will they use two of these math marks or do they just look at the course itself for IB?

For Ontario admission requirements, the perquisites are English and Calc and then they say "80% in English and 85% in top 6 math course". What does this mean exactly? Does it mean Calc must be in your top 6 and you must have over 85? Or can only Adv. Functions be in your top 6 with over 85? Does it have to be both? Confused!!

Official Q&A with Ivey Admissions and Recruiting

Welcome to this thread where you can ask me anything about the HBA Program and the student experience for all years at Western and Ivey.
 
To provide you with some background, I recently graduated from the Honors Business Adminstration Program (HBA) this past year and currently working with the school as the HBA Recruiting Associate. I work closely with most areas of the school, including the admissions committee, career management and faculty.
 
Throughout my years at Western and Ivey I have been involved in a wide variety of activities, most of my time was consumed with residence life and student government; although I have dabbled in a number of club executive positions, intramural activities and a number of different student jobs on campus.

This would be a great forum to dispel some rumours about the program and clear up some of the myths about Ivey. I look forward to our discussions.

These are my marks right now:
English - 78 
Functions - 85
Chemistry- 82

My average right now is an 81. This semester I have Biology, Calculus and Communications Technology. What marks do you think I would have to achieve to get into U of T or Western? Please help, I need motivation from you guys.

Mac Vs Carleton

6 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by Kastler J. Louis
So uhm, I'm 100% sure I want to work with mental health as a profession so I thought getting the cognitive science degree @ Carleton would highlight that.  The issue isn't that I'm actually debating Mac over Carleton, it's more convincing my parents, a Cognitive science degree vs BA in psych would potentially be better for my future.  I told them I booked my tour to Carleton and ofc, I get the "what about McMaster?"  If it isn't obvious, Mac is home and they want me to stay home.  This thread isn't about school reputation or anything, just wanting to opinions.  If you were in my position, would you just go to Mac?

What worries do/did you have going into university?

Anonymous
3 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
And how did you solve it? 

For myself:
I was worried about taking courses that wouldn't work towards my degree. My program requirements changed twice during my first two years and I was super freaked out. I spoke to my program head about it and we sat down and checked to make sure I was on the right path and he pointed me towards the courses I would need for my last two years.

I was also worried, of course, about making friends. In my first year I didn't know many people, but in the year after that I started seeing the same faces again in my classes and ended up becoming friends with those people.

To those of you who are either in your last year of high school or a high school alumni, what was your biggest regret during high school? I think it would be cool to compile a list out of curiosity AND to benefit younger high school students.

I regret not taking french through highschool (I stopped at grade 9). I probably would have been going into a different career/field had I taken french.

Entrance Scholarships (Is it possible to receive a higher amount with final marks?)

Anonymous
3 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by Carleton Journo
So I received an offer of admission awhile back in early January. With that, I was offered a scholarship. Is it possible to receive a higher amount with my final marks? I was accepted based on my grade 11 marks so is it possible for me to increase the scholarship money? I know that my marks are better this year. They're in the low 90s, and I predict that they'll stay that way till 2nd semester finals. BTW i received scholarships for 1,000 per year. Is it possible to increase it to 3,000 per year?

Carleton University, Brock University or Mcmaster?

5 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by Carleton Journo
I am having a huge dilemma whether to go to Brock or Carleton. I've applied to Brock, Carleton, McMaster and Guelph but I don't really want to go to guelph anymore and McMaster is losing my interest. 

Ive applied to Criminology and Criminal Justice in Concentration of Psychology at Carleton, Psychology and Socio at Brock (got accepted) and Socio at McMaster. If anyone knows details about these programs especially the one at Carleton, please tell me because it's a program that isn't available anywhere else. Ultimately, I want to do Criminology and Psychology. 

*** I want to choose a school that has a great social life and night life in the city, cultural diversity is also important to me as well as an accepting community. I also like school spirit***

**** ANOTHER THING THAT IM TRYING TO FIND OUT ABOUT BUT I CANT SEEM TO IS THE DINING SERVICES AT THESE UNIVERSITIES, HOW IS THE FOOD SOMEONE TELL ME PLEASE.***

If anyone goes to any of these schools or has heard things about it please let me know! I want all the info I can get. Thanks guys!!
