Do universities look beyond the top 6 average?

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC
Do they look at which courses you took that might influence the average? Also, does every program application have a supplementary application (that you can build a profile, include ECs...) I have heard that they do not look "fondly" upon summer school courses, but then again, it could just be hearsay; what would "fondly" mean anyway? 

Does anyone have any concrete information?

Thanks :)

I was just wondering how the Accounting and Finance program at Ryerson is. I know Ryerson's reputation isn't as great as Waterloo or Schulich, but I was just wondering how it is because I got acceptance and I am considering it.

'm a 12th grade student who is really interested in going into Chemical Engineering, though I would prefer to go to a general engineering program first year university. My school is ranked #8 in Ontario, Pierre Elliot Trudeau H.S but it's getting to be really freaking hard. My current gr 12 marks are
Advanced Functions: 78
Law: 90
Chemistry: 70~ S= REPEATED : 93
English: 84
History: 95
Calculus: 85
Physics 83
I looked it up and Mcgill and Mcmaster don't look at Advanced Functions!! :]
anyway I applied to:
Mcgill general engineering
Ottawa general engineering
Waterloo Chemical engineering
Queens gen engineering
Western general engineering
UofT general engineering
Mcmaster general engineering

Which of these universities do I have a good chance of getting into? And will the fact that I go to such a highly ranked high school give me any bit of an edge? S=
I have no offers yet TT_TT"""

Acceptances? Engineering and Math

Anonymous
40 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC by Cathy Liu
Does anyone know when UW will start giving out acceptances? 

Engineering should be soon, but I have no clue on the math programs!

Also, if you wouldn't mind saying the program(s) you applied to, your top 6 average (using gr 11 marks when necessary), and when you submitted your AIF, that'd be great :)

Electrical Engineering and Math/FARM
avg: 96-97 (this might be off though because I took adv. func. in the summer)
AIF submitted late Jan/early Feb

Destautels Question

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!!

Hello guys,

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!

Carleton University, Brock University or Mcmaster?

0 replies • Posted: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC
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 (I'm a pretty turnt girl), cultural diversity is also important to me as well as an accepting community despite who you are. I also like school spirit***

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

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!!

Playing Competitive Sports Beyond High School.. Stressing

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:02AM February 28, 2015 UTC
So I was wondering with the workload in a university co-op program do you think it would be possible for someone to play on a club basketball team (Travel,3 practices a week, one game, tournaments etc.) while participating in extracurricular activities and maintaining high grades 85+ or would it just be too stressful and I would end up doing cocaine. I just really love basketball and in many ways basketball motivates me to do better in school so I wanted to continue playing basketball either on the University team or a u 19 club team.Also, do you think that having a car in university is useful if you are already living on residence or is it just a waste of money?

- What're you getting or what did you get in the recent quizzes/tests/assignments?

MARKS MARKS MARKS... AS GRADE 12 PROGRESSES....!!!...

Additional...
- What kinda ECs/volunteering/work are you involved in?
- What are you doing to make your supplementary application stand out?
- How are you dealing with "grade 12" stress?
