Advice for applying to Quarms?
I am currently in grade 11 and have a passion of pursuing a career in the medical field. I have researched many "advanced learning to medical school" programs in the states and this is the only one I have found here. I realize this is a very competitive program and was wondering if anyone of you guys could tell me if applying would be a waste of time or if I actually have a chance.

My average this year was 97%. For courses, such as grade 11 advanced functions, biology and chemistry my average was always about 98%, whether it was mid-terms or finals. EC's I am currently involved in include, school reach, house council, yearbook. I also volunteer at with a local hospital, canadian cancer society, world vision, and free the children. I am not an athletic person and I understand how this program seeks for well-rounded students. I wonder if that will hurt my chances in any way whatsoever. I also plan on joining more extra-curricular activities. I also have completed 200 hours of volunteering and plan on completing another 100 before the end of senior year. I have also taken part at a research lab program at a hospital for high school students and plan on going to a university to experience and work at a lab facility. 

Any advice for improving my chances of getting into the program is greatly appreciated. Sometime I feel like applying for the program is a waste of time though because they only accept 10 students and the possibility of being accepted is very slim to none. I also plan on applying to McMaster's Health Science program as well.
UBC revoke offer
Hello, I took my english provincial this June and I think I did a terrible job on it!!! I was wondering if anyone's offer got revoked? or if anyone got 20% lower than their class mark but their offer was still available? 

I'm in faculty of Science and Science is kinda bitchy about English i think... please share your experience with me so I can assume the chance of my offer getting revoked 
Best bank in Canada?
What's the best student bank account in Canada? I need to have a bank account for OSAP, so what bank do you use and would you recommend it? 

I'm thinking Scotiabank (unlimited transactions, no fees, free scene points), but Scotiabank's hours suck. CIBC has better hours, but no scene points.
Will UBC revoke my offer?
I am extremely worried about whether UBC will revoke my offer or not?

I got admitted to B.I.E with an average of 95 I believe, but since I got a 20% difference on my English provincial I think UBC will only use my provincial mark to calculate my final average, and that turned out to be 87.75. That is a 7% difference, so will they revoke my offer?
Online school course suggestion? (business related)
Hi guys!  I am a grade 11 student, planning to take a business-related course online because my school does not offer any business courses! :(  Any suggestions? 
Economics, international business, business leadership, sports marketing, accounting? 
If you can only pick one which would you pick? 

AMA Request: Summer Co-op/Intern at a Big 4 Accounting Firm
I and many others on this forum are pursuing a CPA designation and would probably want to work at a big 4 firm. I think it would be beneficial if someone who is currently working there this summer or recently worked there as a student could answer some questions for us.
Hi! I'm new one here.
I wish u will help me about studying in Canada or USA. I live in Kosovo of Europe. Here schools are not comfortable to study and also I'm in high-school. I study for natural science but I prefer to study mathematic general. Unfortunately I can't because we just learn not doing practice, we don't have professional school and I hate this. The most of students finished masters and now they are staying at home. They are unemployed. I'm worried about this. Sound so bad if you have any perspectives for the future, you will be disappointed. Thank u all I hope you will understand and help me.

What do the "other" kids do after high school?
Just a general question out of curiosity, but what do the kids who dont even make it on honour roll do after high school?

why cant i keep a guy?
Why cant i keep guys? Like i don't usually have any trouble getting guys but even if they do ask me out on a date (lunch, fishing, etc) they always make an excuse to call it off. Are all guys this flaky or is it just me? It doesn't make sense because they ask me out and then don't carry through...like do they lose interest in me? I don't think im easy...i try to play hard to get a reasonable amount. Also do most guys wheel more than one girl at a time or is that just a common misconception?

Electives at UTM
Hi, I've accepted my admission to the UTM Life Sciences program and have three mandatory courses I need to take. I was wondering, what are some good electives that I can take in my first year?
University of Ottawa or University of Alberta?
Hello everyone!
So here's my story, I got accepted into University of Ottawa's Honors bachelor of Computer science with Co-op program and University of Alberta's Computer science program. Now i'm aware that U of Alberta is higher ranked than Ottawa u but is it a wiser choice to choose Ottawa u since its an honors degree and includes a Co-op or should I choose Alberta where there is no honors or co-op. Which would be a better choice job wise? Your answers will be very important to me and good luck to all of you!

Can't withdraw RESP for OSAP
Okay guys I'm in a really sticky situation

I have money in my RESP, but I have no idea how many. When I asked them for it, they said I have to show my proof of enrollment. I was told that was the course schedules that we have. And the problem is, I can't choose my courses till July 10th.

What should I put in the RESP section??
I have to submit it ASAP cause the 60 day deadline is fairly close

Ask me anything about admissions (Future Engineering Students)
I was accepted to:

University of Toronto - Track one
University of British Columbia - First year
York University - Space Engineering
Queen's University - Chemical Engineering

I applied with a university transfer average of 95.3% + several EC's, and a grade 12 average of 80.5%.

By the way, I had a 55 in grade 11 physics, and never took pre-calculus in high school. Nonetheless,  I was still able to get A+'s in linear algebra, calculus 1 and 2 in university.

My goal here is to provide students advice, and answer questions concerning the admission process at these universities. Moreover, I would also like to share advice to students with low high school marks on what they can do to get into schools like U of T, UBC, etc.

Edit: I see some of you are confused, I did not apply to any of these universities out of high school. I first went to the university in my province, obtained a 95% average, then applied as a transfer applicant.

Queen's Commerce Conditional Revoked?
Hey guys!

I got accepted into Queen's Commerce from BC and finished the school year with an English 12 mark of 85%. However, the provincial is worth 40% of my mark, and should I get below 72% on the exam, I would fall below the 80% threshold set by Queen's. Although I feel like I did well on the exam, what would happen if I fell below 80? Would I truly lose my offer or are they understanding if it was within a percent or two?
