When to apply?

I got my OUAC pin yesterday but I still think its too early to apply, I was planning on applying before the christmas break though. So what do you think would be the best time to apply between today and the break?

Apply as soon as you can! Universities and colleges have a "magic number" of people they automatically accept no matter what. Initiative is a big green check on your application. Also, if you apply now, there is less chance of the system crashing during the Christmas holidays when everyone else applies. :)

It doesn't matter when you apply, so long as it's before the deadline. Your chances of getting into a university don't increase the earlier you apply. Sorry, but the "initiative is a big green check on your application" thing isn't true.

Although yes, it is better to get this sort of thing out of the way sooner, rather than waiting until the last minute in case you can't apply due to being "busy" or away for the holidays or whatever reason.

It's never too early to apply. Personally I remember applying in the first week of December when I was in grade 12.
