AMA: University of Guelph Science 3rd Year
Hi everyone,

I'm here to answer any questions you have about Guelph or even anything in general. I'm a third year at the University of Guelph, Majoring in Biomedical Science with a minor in Neuroscience. I'm also looking into switching into Brain & Cognition as a major at Guelph. I'm actively involved in extra curriculars at the university and in the city of Guelph so I know a lot about the clubs on campus (I actually manage some!). I'm looking into going into Medical School in the future as well as obtaining a Masters in a Psychological/Neuroscience area. I'm an out of province student and I also receive financial assistance so you can ask me about almost anything. I'm familiar with other universities as well, including McMaster, Queens, and UBC and I can tell you why I chose Guelph over the other universities.
Queens or U of T?
I've been accepted into both Queens and U of T St. George for BA, and I'm not sure which one would be right for me. I got into St. Mike's, which I've heard has a good community and that's kind of my major issue with U of T. I've also heard that Queens has an awesome overall community. I'm kind of leaning towards Queens, but once I graduate does a Queens diploma hold as much weight as a U of T diploma? 
I'll ultimately go to the one that best fits me obviously, but is there a big difference?

Laurier BBA Second Round Acceptances
With the second round of Laurier's admissions for the BBA coming up (mid February), I figured we could have a post to discuss, in an organized fashion, when people start getting accepted. If you get accepted, please post when you received your acceptance letter, what your top 5 grade 11 averages were, and what your first semester grade twelve marks were. 

Good luck!

Please include in your post:
- Program

- Date of application
- Admission average (Grade 11, first semester, second semester midterm - whatever was used in determining admission qualifications)

Good luck guys!

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.

Stressing!!!
I'm in gr.11 and I'm stressing about what programs I want to apply to next year. I think I've been thinking more about what my dream school is than the programs I want to take. Mcgill and U of T are my top choice. Torn between Nursing or maybe law in the future. I like history, chemistry and bio. But I struggle to get a 76% is math. Is nursing a good idea if I don't excel in math.  I need to figure out what I want to do with my life by next year. My average this semester was a 89% this semester which I feel is super low compared to everyone else's, Do I even have a chance? Help!!!!!!

Brock BBA or Ryerson Bcomm.?
Grade 12 Top 3: 88%

Ryerson Bcomm. Accounting and Finance (accepted)
Laurier BBA (no answer yet)
Brock BBA (no answer yet)

I first choice is Laurier but does anybody know if they take people with high 80s into their BBA program? If I get into Laurier, I'll probably go there but if I don't get that, out of Ryu and Brock, which is better?

Queen's Acceptance
I applied to a lot of universities, including Queen's. I ranked Queen's as #10 out of 12 programs. I heard you have to rank Queen's in your top 3 to even be considered, is this true? What are my chances?

Chances of getting into UBC or SFU?
I'm in a linear school system and I self reported my term 1 mark to SFU, but it's been two weeks and I haven't receive any offer. Now I am starting to worry about my marks, because I think my average is around the borderline.  

English 73
PreCalculus 93 ( probably aced my midterm so my mark will go up)
Chemistry 88
Mandarin 99
Physics 87

I applied for UBC science and arts, as well as SFU computing science and siat. Term 2 is over yet so my average might go up a bit because of my math midterm. My average right now is between 88 to 90. I think I don't have any chance for ubc science now, but what about SFU computer science or UBC arts? The average admission for SFU is not precise on their website so I wasn't sure.

Thanks for reading!
