Apply to Uni?

A photo of Viking21 Viking21
I wondering to learn a little of the application process for university and how much time it will take so I can keep it in mind when the time comes to it.

How many programs are you allowed to apply to? (Max and min <-- if there is any)

I know many of the alternate offers are listed on the uni website...but how would it work if the next alternate offer is the program without co-op and you are interested in a different program wid co-op but wid approx same cut-off range?

I have narrowed down my selections of programs in my signiture

Thanks in advance

Minimum of 3 programs for $120. Every additional program is $40. You can apply to as many programs as your heart (and wallet) desires.

If you're interested in another program as a backup to another program, and are scared you won't get it as a alternate offer, just apply to both, you can apply to a maximum of 3 programs per school. There are some exceptions. For e.g. Laurier will only accept you to your top choice.

As far as your programs go so far, I know UW will give you an AFM-FM coop possibly as an alternate and I believe Arts and Business possibly as well. I don't think the other programs you listed give alternates.

Thanks about the information.

I've also heard that if you are a chancellor's scholarship nominee you are basically guaranteed acceptance. Is this true or am I misinformed.

You didn't have Queens on your sig when I responded but yes, if you are nominated you pretty much are guaranteed an acceptance to QC.

What are the requirements for becoming a nominee...I don't think getting reference from my guidance counselor will be a problem as I she knows me pretty well.

There's an application and your school's nominating committee (Yes your school has one) will choose the the nominees blindly (They won't look at the names and only the essays).

My school didn't have one. All I did was speak to my VP. He said that he will review my candidacy along with other students who request to be nominated. However, there was only 1 more student asking to be nominated and the size of my school allowed for two nominations, so we both got it. However, I ended up not even applying to Queen's because I wanted to stay in the city. lols
