OUAC confirmation number
I'm an idiot and I didn't screenshot my confirmation number when I accepted my offer. What happens if you don't have it and does anyone know how I can get it now? Should I cancel my offer then accept it again?

Nursing Hopefuls 2015!
Hey everyone!

I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.

1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:


1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year


So common guys, reveal yourselves! ;)
UTM or UTSC or Western????
I've been accepted to UTM Commerce, UTSC Management (with Economics Specialist), King's (Western) BMOs, and Western BMOs. I'm having a really hard time deciding between those four and I have to make a decision by Monday. Please help, any sort of input is appreciated! :)
Computer Science co-op UTSC??
Hi! Does anyone know the average cut off rates for the computer science (co-op) program at UTSC? Does an average of 86 give me a good chance or no? Oh and one more thing. I've yet to receive my first term midterm marks, but I know I did horribly in Chemistry (70 on the dot or maybe even lower). But I'm not considering my Chem OR Physics mark to be in my top 6. In my top 6, I have adv functions, calculus, english, international business, and I'm planning on taking 2 easy courses next year, to boost up my average. So to sum it up, this semester, I only have advance functions and english (since I'm not counting Chemistry) as one of my top 6.. Will they send my Chemistry mark to UTSC as well? I'm panicking, because it might impact my acceptance.. :/
Which university to pick?
Hello, 

so I got accepted to Dalhousie University and York university.
However I'm very confused about where to go...
I'm looking for the pros and cons of each, if anyone can help it would be wonderful.
My acceptance is to the liberal arts and professional sciences program and i'm considering Political science and philosohy double major.

All help is highly appreciated.
When to press Accept??
I know the deadline for pressing accept for uni offers is June 1st but a lot of people say that it takes time for the acceptance to process so is it bad to press accept on the 30th or 31st?
WATERLOO AND UOFT ENGINEERING
This debate has been going for very long. 
Whuch university is in your opinion better?
I say WATERLOO
Which life science program should I choose?
Didn't get into western med sci or general sci (my first choice) or mac life sci. My average was mid 80s. I got into UTSG life science and a few other universities like waterloo life sci and queens sci, but the only three I'm actually considering are UT, Ottawa health sci, and guelph general science. 
It was my fault for slacking this year and messing up my chances at a great university. I'm really torn because I know I'm capable and just need to get my act together, but I'm unhappy with the university choices. UT accepts just about anyone for life science and they weed people out first year. I have people close to me who went to UT same program and advise against it, and many of these people have become doctors themselves. They say it ruins your GPA and is really tough and stressful, and no coop opportunities anyway.
I was going to go to UT but now I'm doubtful. I'm thinking of going to Guelph first year and I'd try to get really high grades so I can transfer to western's general sci or med sci program 2nd year because they seem like a more reputable university. But what's the switching process like? I heard it's really tough.
I'm not too sure what I want to do for a future career, all i know is I want to go to graduate school (so that's why I want to go to an easier undergrad program so I can maintain a higher GPA), and either dental school or pharmacy (whatever I like better), and nursing as a backup.  
Please help me out, I really don't know what to do and I only have a couple of days to decide. Is it worth coming back an extra semester? 
Single room vs Double room!
I like the comfort of having privacy but everyone says having a roommate and a communal bathroom leads to making more friends, I'm already a very outgoing person, what do you suggest?
University engineering program
Hi,
I need to make a final decision regarding university very soon.
I've been admitted to industrial engineering at UofT but I would like to study electrical.
In order to transfer after first year I need a 65 average in first year.
Would anyone be able to comment on the difficulty of first year engineering and that ability to maintain a 65 average.

I also got accepted to McMaster for general first year.
Furthermore, I got accepted to ryerson, Ottawa, York, and UTM for various programs.

Thanks!
Please help with my decision

1. U of T - ECE
2. Waterloo - Mechatronics Engineering
Is York University good for computer science??
I've recently admitted to York university and UBC(Okanagan) but for UBC, I didn't get an offer of computer science.

 They said I have to do 2 Science programs(Phy, Chem) and math in first year and then I can choose my major in the second year but even though I've done those 2 sciences and maths in A levels(British syllabus) I don't like science much. 

I searched about York university a bit and the teaching score was quite low whereas the teaching score in UBC was really good. This is my most worrying part.

I think I will be working in Canada when I graduate university.

 Is computer science in York university good enough to get employed later? (assuming that my GPA is average compared to other students)
What can I do with an economics degree?
I really really like economics, and am considering taking a major in uni.  BUT I'm not sure what kind of jobs you can get with this degree.  Does anyone have insight on this?
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. This is my second forum post, my old one was getting huge and a bit unwieldy.

I am searching for a full scholarship in Canada as an international student. Being a citizen of Mauritius , its quite hard to find the necessary funds to achieve when it comes to go abroad. I am presently doing my B(Eng) in Mechatronics engineering (4th year) and i would like some help concerning the steps to be awarded a full scholarship to do a Masters Degree in Canada.
Thanks.

UofT is taking soo long!
Hii! I'm an international student currently applying to the University of Toronto and I still haven't gotten an admissions decision! I honestly don't know why it's taking so long. They received my last package on April 13th, and then they didn't update the documents received tab until May 12th. My application status says "Not yet reviewed", and I'm freaking out because I got into UBC and Waterloo and I need to accept or decline those offers by June 1st.. I only have 7 days left! Needless to say, UofT is my first choice.. How long does it take UofT to review applications once documents have been updated? And then how long does it take them to make a decision? I feel like it's a terrible sign the fact that I still haven't heard anything from them! Help :(
