UTSC Management
I got into UTSC management today, well at least that's what it says on the joinID website. There's a 'congrats' banner and status says admitted. When i click it though, it says 'application under review'. Also, the offer doesn't show up on the OUAC. Anyone in this position>
High School Class of 2016 Offers of Admissions
The Applications thread is pretty cluttered so I was thinking we could start this thread to make it easier to view when others are accepted to programs you've applied to! 

Please include in your post:
- Program
- Date of offer
- Date of application
- Admission average (Grade 11, first semester, second semester midterm - whatever was used in determining admission qualifications)
- Province
- Any supplementary information (Ex. ECs if they're required on application, predictions about quality of essays/responses)
- Any other information you deem appropriate!

Good luck guys!

Are you a University Student Studying Science?
I'm in grade 11 right now, and wanted to know what programs you're studying in science. I'm at that time where I'm narrowing down my options, and I'm so confused on career options? Preferably I would like to go to UBC, but other schools choices are helpful too. I have a 92% average and am getting 94 in physics 11. I love math and physics. Could you please tell me a little bit about your program and if you would recommend it? What are you career goals?

First year Med Sci student, happy to answer questions!
Hi, I am currently attending University of Western Ontario for the Medical Sciences Program.
I am happy to answer any questions that anyone may have about the program, course load, and overall experience at Western! 

A bit about myself:
I attended a high school within Ontario and received my acceptance to Med Sci in January (or early February?). I was also accepted to multiple science programs from other universities including, but not limited to: U of T, Waterloo, York, McMaster, Queen's, Ryerson, and Guelph. 

Post questions down below and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible!

UTSC 3rd Year Co-op Management Ask Me Anything!
Hi Everyone, 

I post a lot here and I figured I just do a AMA. Please note that this is going to be a serious discussion so if you feel the need to troll this thread, please do it elsewhere or just don't do it at all. It really doesn't contribute to anything. A lot of HS seniors are spending the winter holidays working on their university applications so hopefully I can shed some light on UTSC Co-op Management which is really under rated on this forum and maybe some of you will consider applying. That said, I will be as objective as I can but there will be some bias.

Schools I applied to in Grade 12:
Rotman Commerce
UTSC Management Co-op
Queen's Commerce
Waterloo AFM
Brock BAcc
Ryerson BComm

90% HS average
Completed 2 co-ops at Fortune 100 Company
3 Study Terms Left, 1 Co-op Left
Interviews for First Co-op: Banks, GE, Small Accounting Firms
Second Co-op: Multiple Return Offers

What is the difference between Co-op vs. Internships? 

Many employers are opting to choose this route because of a tax credit. What does this do for the student? Well, since the employer is receiving a credit, they can choose to pay you more. Example: Pay you $15,000 but they get $3000 back so they are really paying you $12,000. To do this, you need to be a student enrolled in an accredited co-op program. http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/credit/cetc.

Co-op programs and jobs are regulated by a board meaning there is a standard that employers and schools have to meet. For UTSC personally, the co-op department screens every job and ensures that every job is relevant. Will you find secretary only positions? Nope but you might have some administrative duties in your job mandate. There are compensation standards and so on. All co-op schools have a job portal exclusive to co-op students. While the jobs can be found on TalentEgg and Linkedin and so on, the advantage comes in the 1st round and continuous round and Ranking System. 

Finally, co-op programs allow for more opportunity. Most jobs posted in the Winter and Fall semester are only for co-op students to apply meaning instead of only getting to apply for summer internships, you can get 3 semesters a year for a chance. Some industries like accounting hire more in the Winter. For UTSC, they allow us so much flexibility in the length of our work term (4,8,12 months) as well as our sequence order. A study did show that on average co-op students get an 11% higher starting salary on full time offers because of the experience. There are not that many co-op schools in Canada compared to non co-op. The job qualities are the exact same. You can do IB or Consulting in the Fall or Winter.

Let's begin!

EDIT: This site is a bit weird, when a new response is made I have to scroll through the thread to find it. If I miss your question, please post it on the bottom.
The final mark I got for chemistry is 80 on the dot. ×_× 
All my other marks are/ should be in the high 80s to 90s.
I applied to engineering at university of toronto, ryerson, mcmaster and waterloo.
Do I have a chance? How much of the weight factor do you think my chemistry mark has on their decision to accept or reject me?
Should I repeat it?
U of toronto & waterloo do not consider the repeated course/ there is a penalty correct? Do I have a chance at ryerson or u of toronto regardless of my chemistry mark??

WLU!!!!!!! @REPS
I applied to the BASC program in like Jan and have still not recieved the offer. I repeated grade 12 english b/c when I did it in summer school I got a 56% due to some personal issues but repeated in day school and completed it with a 91% average.

My grade 12 semester 1 average is: 85.25 and I have yet to receive an offer? and with my grade 11 marks combined (chem and another top mark equaling to 6) I have a 83.5% average.. 

Should I expect an admission offer? Only worried because it says that low 70s are required. 

Thanks for the help!

Elementary Awards Relevant or Not?
Out of curiosity, has anyone listed elementary awards on anything?(Elementary Valedictorian, Math Award, etc.)
I'm assuming they're irrelevant, but I'm curious.

Current UBC Student- Ask me anything
I'm a second year UBC student. I took first year sciences, lived in rez, and have since transferred into Engineering. I'm also an Orientations Leader and a volunteer for Destination UBC. 

I can answer questions about about rez life, science, how I got into UBC, engineering or transferring.
McGill Engineering Intra-faculty Transfer
I was just accepted into McGill for Electrical Engineering. I was wondering how easy it is to shift into another engineering program, say mechanical engineering from electrical engineering.
Confused about U of T admissions
I got an email last night from U of T about my college ranking;

"We are delighted that you have ranked Victoria College –Vic– as your first choice college in your application to the Faculty of Arts & Science at U of T! Vic is an academic environment where students and professors are committed to building a community that welcomes diversity, embraces creativity and is energized by challenge. Though you have selected Vic as your first choice, it is possible that you may be admitted to another college. You are encouraged to learn more about your other college choices."

I logged into joinid and saw that my status was "admitted" on the front page. However I havent received any admission offers yet. Are other people experiencing this problem?

Also does "admitted" mean I was accepted into my program in general or does it include being accepted into vic college as well? 
Uni acceptance help
So I have 80's -90s in all my classes but just advanced functions I got a 58% I applied to ryerson business tech management which said I needed 74-77 and my average should be above that by the end of the year , will I get accepted even tho I have a low math mark :( I still meet average requirements !! I even tried to upgrade  AF it but class was full now I'm on wait list
Parent's won't let me go to college to study.
I'm in 11th grade and I'm thinking about my future. I genuinely feel that I have nothing going for me at the moment. My grades are atrocious and I feel like I might even fail a couple classes. I hope to pursue a career computer related, as computers are the only thing that I have known my whole life, but I am certain that my current grades will hold me back from reaching that field. I feel like grade 12 won't get too much better, unless I manage to find some massive motivation out of my ass that will drive me into improving my grades drastically. Without good grade 12 marks, I know university won't be an option, so I am really considering college where I can study, and then hopefully make the transition into Uni that way, but my parents got extremely mad and started lecturing me for even bringing it up. I'm confident that a decent university for computer science will not consider me with the grades I have, and college seems like the only option, but my parent's are too traditional to let me go that route. It's as if they don't understand that my bad grades are already jeopardizing my chances of going to Uni, so what am I supposed to do? Atleast I'm willing to give college a try, but they just refuse to let me. What do I do in this situation.

University of Toronto Life Science Acceptance
I went onto my account for U of T. And it says that I have been admitted to the life sciences program, and there's even a little congratulation note at the start page. However, once I click on the program, it says my application status is "pending review" and the offer does not show up on my OUAC either. Other applicants are also having this same problem. Does this mean I got accepted or no ?
University of Toronto Scarborough for Computer Science (2016 First Year)
Hey Guys.

I got accepted by UofT recently for Co-op Computer Science at UTSC. I had applied for Co-op Computer Science at the University of Waterloo as well, but haven't got anything from there yet. I am an international student studying in the Indian CBSE system.

What i wanted to know was that which University is better in terms of Education, Job Opportunities, Co-op Companies and Co-op Placements, Social Life. Which is stricter in terms of education and also which has better professors.

Thanks guys. I would love answers from current students of both universities and also alumni.

Help me
My parents are forcing me to go to University but I want to go to college. I am more hands on at learning and I can not learn the way university kids learn. I need to be able to do it to learn it. My parents keep calling me worthless and stupid because I have no interest in university. What should I do?

Ontario Universities - Who's putting out offers?
Can we make a thread to attempt to keep up with which Ontario schools have begun sending offers of admission? This is what I propose: If a school you know of has begun sending offers, check the comments. If you do not see the school yet, make a new comment. If you would like to post about your acceptance (average, timing, program) reply to the school's comment directly. For organization's sake. I'll start by putting the few I've seen in comments.
