Anyone else depending heavily on second semester?

A photo of heylooklisten heylooklisten
My strong subjects are all this semester, including English, my prereq. FOUR of my predicted top six are this semester!

I hear they hold off on your early acceptance if you didn't already finish English. Guess I have to wait till midterm in April.

I'm not depending that heavily on this term for Ontario schools, definitely am for BC schools though.

As for the English thing, not true. I know some people who got into east coast schools who haven't completed English.

One of the only advantages of going to a non-semestered school... all of my marks are mid-term marks. :batman:

Agreeeed.
But the only crappy thing is that because I'm from BC, I have to mail them my first term marks because second term won't make it in time for early admission..

Mine's split pretty even I guess, Physics, English and AF last sem, Chem, Bio and Calc this sem.

Do they actually hold off acceptance if you haven't done english yet? (Doesn't apply to me, just curious)

Yupp, a lot of social sciences and humanities that only have ENG as a pre-req will with hold your acceptance until they see a mark. "According to an English teacher"

I've been accepted to a few programs even though I'm doing my English now. But then again, they're the universities in Ottawa. :)

Everything important was last semester for me. I can improve my top4, but I'm 2% above the predicted admission average already.

I think that theory only applies to U of T.
One of my friends got his early acceptance into York in January and he hasn't finished English yet.

Non-semestered except for calc, which I happen to be depending heavily on. I wish I had a fresh start though, taking the same courses all year long gets really tiring after a while so there's always a dip from first term to second. I'm expecting my average to go down at least 1%. -.-"

I had a 93% average my first semester, with 2/5 of my pre-req courses.

This semester I have math, geography, and law. Math is the only course I'm worried about... it'll bring my average down an estimated 4%. Goddamnit.

I'm currently taking bio, chem AND physics this semester. It's actually not as bad as it seems since the only prereqs I'm really need is bio and chem (aiming for mid 90s) .. physics is just "recommended" and chances of it making into my top 6 are slim...

I have a friend taking all 3 sciences + calc. THAT is insane. Good thing I completed calc last semester ;D

I got alot of early acceptances without english last semester, probably because they look at grade 11 english
Im just trying to hold a high average for scholarships

nope they dont hold it off because i got 2 early acceptances and they just used my english mark from grade 11, so if your grade 11 english mark was good then they will still give it to u, as long as u dont fall below the minimun avr. to maintain

It's just a theory that a lot of people have proposed. Doesn't apply to most universities, but it seems to apply to a lot of people who have got into U of T.
Many on this forum who have gotten in have already finished Eng 12.

Btw - your siggy.. isn't it QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY and not university of queen's?
