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!

Quebec Residency Mistake
I accidentally put that I was eligible for Quebec residency in my McGill application when I am not. I've already been accepted, but would it still affect me if I asked Admissions to correct my mistake?
Thank you. I am really worried about this.

Residence
I've already been offered admission for the program I want to go to, but I'm holding off until march break for the open house. I'm applying for residency after I accept my offer and I know it's a lottery system, but does the later you apply for residence affect your chances of getting your top choice??

University of Toronto Engineering Acceptance?
When I Iog onto join.utoronto it says that I have been admitted to the engineering program for 2016. If I go onto OUAC however, nothing is posted. Also, if I click on the link that takes me to the Online Studen Profile, it also says decision pending. What does this mean?

Queens or McMaster Kinesiology?
I am having a hard time deciding between which school would be better for Kinesiology: Queen's or McMaster.
Can you please list some of the pros/cons of each program, and which one they think is better/more reputed (and why)?
Thanks so much!

When are acceptances for McMaster's Life Science program being sent? Has anyone received one yet?
So I'm currently in grade 12 and I applied for Mcmaster's Life Science program, and I was just wondering if anyone's gotten an acceptance for this program yet? What average did you have if you did? I finished off semester one with a 92.5 percent, which is making me a little nervous. Is that going to be high enough for an acceptance this month or am I going to have to suffer through several months more of anxiety for the March round of acceptances? Thanks!
FUTURE KINESIOLOGY STUDENTS!!!

U of Alberta, Calgary or Saskatchewan?
I live in Ontario but my family lives in Kindersley, which is almost four hours away from both Edmonton and Calgary, and about two from Saskatoon. I have applied to their neuroscience and psychology programs and am totally lost on which one to choose. I've never been to Calgary but from what I saw of Edmonton (in about 3 days) I didn't quite like it. But it sure is a lot more prestigious than the other two. However I am planning on going to med school in Calgary after my undergrad. 
So I really need help choosing the undergrad university for starters. Any opinions regarding the residence, quality of education and the city itself would be appreciated.
Thanks

McMaster To-Do List
Hi,

So I'm from Alberta and I applied to Mcmasters and it says there's nothing on my to do list like all the other universities tell me what needs to be done. However, it does say it need my high school grades under my application status. So should I just mail it to them?

Thank you

UBC or U of C Kinesiology?
I can't decide whether to attend UBC or University of Calgary for Kinesiology. Can anybody tell me which has a better program, campus, etc.?

My ultimate goal is med school or physio school in either canada or the states (I'm a US citizen) so will choosing UBC or U of C affect my options in the US?

Thanks :)

Computer Science
Hi,

   I have decided that I want to study economics or computer science when I go to university (hopefully UFT/UWO). I am taking the required courses for economics for gr 11&12 but only one computer science course in each grade. When I was choosing my courses in February, I was told that physics is not necessary for computer science. Since many of my gr12 friends are receiving their admissions, they're telling me that physics is required. I'm not at all good at chemistry and physics but am extremely good at math. Also, I have looked at university admission requirements for comp sci from Ryerson, UFT, Western and they all require either chem or physics. I am unsure what to do because I am positive that I will absolutely fail in both classes
Grade 11 Marks
Hi everyone! I am a grade 11 student in Ontario and  my  career choice and  dream is to become a nurse practitioner, I didn't do too well in Chem 78% and Bio 73% (11 University) and now I'm really freaking out with reading all these posts.  I know I have the ability to do better than the marks I got which sounds ludicrous but I just know.  I'm taking all the science courses, advanced functions,  data management and calc/vectors.  My aunt who is a nurse practitioner and is still continuing her studies told me to take data management but i don't know if calc/vectos will benefit me.  I also had  university world issues in mind as well as kinesology.  Do you guys think I should take a spare?  I will be taking 12U English in summer school and I haven't decided if I should take a course in night school.  I know these marks look really bad for nursing but I know I could get better marks.  My top choices are UofT, Western and Queens.  I'm in desperate need of help with getting my courses organized, if you guys have tips or anything it would be greatly appreciated because I am freaking out right now.

Chances for CS/SE? I'm really worried...
Hi, I'm a student applying for CS/SE. I'm wondering what my chances are for this program.
Average: ~98.5%, expecting to go up to 99.3%
AP Calculus BC: 100%
AP Advanced Functions: 100%
AP Physics C: 100%
AP Chemistry: 96% (Hard chem teacher T___T)
AP English: 97% (fucking English T___T)
AP Programming: 100%

The issue is that I have few EC's. I'm only President of my school's Programming Club, Student Council and Math Club. I won several national engineering competitions such as NASA International Competition, Intel Engineering Competition, International Hackathon sponsored by Google to compete, and Top-100 Internationally in competitions such as FB Hacker Cup & Google Code Jam.

Here are some contest scores:
Euclid 2015: 85/100
CCC Senior 2015: 62/75
CCC Senior 2014: 50/75
CCC Junior 2013: 75/75

Any chance? Everyone from my school applying has 99+ averages... Thanks

UBC or University of Guelph???
Hey I would love some advice on choosing between schools!!
 Currently I am a grade 12 student and I live in Guelph ON. I want to go into the environmental field (Environmental Sciences, Ecology ect.) I have been looking mostly at University of Guelph and University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus. I have a fear of staying in Guelph for school because I am scared I will never leave, but on the other hand BC is very far from home. I would love any advice on living far from home, living in the same city that you grew up in, the universities, the programs. Really anything??? Thanks!
