I have my AEO status, and I think I'll be meeting all the progression requirements... am I guaranteed in? I know Ivey has the right to revoke any acceptance. But, AEO is technically a "conditional offer". Anyone know anything about this?

Queen's Commerce Acceptances

11 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
One of my teachers said Queen's is unique to other business schools and they send out majority of their Commerce acceptances in late February. Chances of getting in after that is slim. My problem is that I have an 83% average first semester but I'm convinced I can raise that to a 90+ by second sem mid terms. Is this true about Queen's?

UBC Engineering Cut off??

Anonymous
1 reply • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by PS Man
What's up guys...

So I've applied to UBC Applied Sciences Program, and like a lot of other people.. I was wondering my chances of getting in. I hear from a lot of people that UBC doesn't care too much about your personal profile but rather your academic standings. I was hoping you guys could give me some input.

So far I got my Term 2 grades (linear school)
Pre-Calculus 12: 97%
English 12: 94%
Physics 12 (Final): 88%
Chemistry 12: 84%
Which basically leaves me at a 90.75% Total Average.

I hear that if one course is much lower than the rest, that can really hurt your profile, and in my case, is my chemistry 12 grade too low?

So far.. I think I have a great Personal Profile.
- Top 3 in Provincials for Volleyball, while i compete in many other sports
-Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Very active in my community, I start a lot of programs with various community centres
- Work 2 jobs with a single mom
- Participate in school clubs
- Also I listed how I overcame adversity, and show how I became a stronger person overall through that.

Those are most of the key points I listed on my personal profile.

So to put this in a lot simpler form...
90.75% avg with a strong personal profile.

What do you think my chances are of getting in??

Arch. vs Industrial Design!

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC
Two of the universities I have applied to are Waterloo for arch. and Carleton for arch and industrial design. I am interested in both fields of study and am not sure which one to choose if im accepted into both. I have read that if I do Arch I can still get a job in ID and it is easier to switch to ID during uni than vice versa. But by taking Arch, I will be losing what I would have learned in ID. I like product design and marketing but Arch is a a more reputable field and I can still do lot's besides arch with the degree. I will see what anyone thinks with the info I have given. Please give ur opinions!

Chances of gaining admission into McMaster Nursing?

SydneyXin1995
9 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by pj ng
Hello,

I am a grade 12 student currently attending a semestered Ontario high school and have applied to Nursing at McMaster University. My first semester finals are as follows:

MHF4U0---95
FSF4U1---98
SBI4U1---90
PSE4U1---90

My grade 11 finals in other required subjects are as follows:

ENG3U1---88
SCH3U1---90

I have also completed MDM4U1 and SPH4U1 in my grade 11 year with final grades of 90 and 75 respectively.

My projected courses for second semester are SCH4U1, MCV4U0, and ENG4U1.

According the the McMaster 2013 viewbook, the anticipated admission average for the program in question is in the high-80s. However, I am questioning the reliability of this information and wish to confirm whether I should consider myself "on the safe side" with my current average over 90. 

I am also looking to gain insight from those who have a better understanding of the nature of the program.

Thanks in advance!

So I've been recently researching this program and found it to be really compelling. However, I've heard that this is a hard program to enter, and if you do enter it, it is hard to  balance your work, let alone your personal life. Has anyone know someone or is in the program? If so, what were their averages? And how do they find it so far?

Just got waitlisted for sciences at UBC... is it all over? (IB)

Anonymous
5 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Leo Huang
Hello,

I've had my heart set on UBC for quite a while now, and then just this afternoon I got the news that I was waitlisted on their student portal.

"We have evaluated your application and due to the competitive nature of your program, we are not able to offer you admission. Your application is currently wait-listed. Any changes to your application and wait-list status will be noted here and a final decision will be available to you by June 15th. Please note that a large number of wait-listed candidates do not receive offers of admission, and we encourage you to make alternate plans accordingly."

I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what my chances are of getting accepted, if at all. I'm a IB diploma student with a total predicted mark of 33. My predicted mark breakdown is:
6 - Chemistry, Geography
5 - Math, Spanish (final), English
4 - Physics (Trying hard to bring this up - is this mark the main cause of me being waitlisted?)
with 2 Predicted marks for TOK & EE. 

Does anyone know of IB students who got accepted with around a 33 predicted? I realise that their website has listed a "recommended" average of 29-32 for admission, and I'd like to think my PP was strong (Good ECs, but who knows, since it's relative scoring). My waitlist message doesn't even say the "Strong candidate", which it appears a lot of others have.

SCHULICH - FIRST ROUND OF ACCEPTANCES???

2 replies • Last reply: 7:02AM February 27, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hi! So i was previously creeping on the Schulich 2014 acceptances thread here on SA (or yconic now), and I saw that some people had their top 6 and it did not include calc, even though it IS a pre-req for the program. This was for first round of acceptances.

anywho, I was wondering what the first round of acceptances were based on? I go to a semestered school and i am currently taking only 3 courses as i have a spare. They are: adv functions, english and religion. So i am quite confused on how these people from last year already had their top 6 before midterm marks came out (this was in March and midterms come in May).

Hey yall. 

I was wondering how many of you got this email from Waterloo inviting you to their SAF Networking Reception. I heard last year they only invited about 50 applicants but I have no idea this year

So if you have gotten an email from Waterloo inviting you to this event, feel free to drop a comment down below (and if you plan on going or not!). 

I'm contemplating going or not depending on how many people were invited and what it is about. Does anyone have any experience with this Networking reception and can shine some light on it?

Thanks guys, and good luck AFM hopefuls!

Residence offer

When exactly does UofT send residence offers? Is it specifically after we accept our UofT offer or after we have confirmed our interest in residence and ranked our residence options? 

Furthermore, I've been admitted to St Michael College and so, my options for residence were St Mich., Loretto and Chestnut. I really want to avoid Chestnut due to its price and location on campus. However, I noticed on St Mich.'s website that I have to complete my res application on sth called Star Portal and apparently, this application only lists Chestnut, Innis and Woodsworth and no St Mich. which is concerning ._.
