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.

Admission requirements??
I'm studying in an American curriculum school oversees but I'm a Canadian citizen. Do I need SATs?? I'll apply for undeclared engineering.
Does university cares about the course other than the top six
I didn't realize I don't have group 1 credit until gr12 so I have to take world issue but I really don't like the course and it's boring :( I might end up with a 50% so I'm wondering if the university will care if they see a 50 on my report card

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!

My joinid says that I've been admitted into the program and that they've sent a package containing the details. However, I haven't received an email confirmation. Has anyone who has been admitted gotten one?

public administration and policy management @ carleton
I'm really excited to have been accepted to the PAPM program and im 99% sure that I'll be going but I still have a few more questions that I would love if some current students/grads could help me with. 
When I look through lists of courses I would be taking throughout the 4 years, it seems like there isn't much room for electives? Am I looking at this wrong or is it true that you'd have only 4 elective credits total? I was hoping to do a minor or at least take some courses in a different subject area and now I'm unsure if that will be possible. 
I also just wanted to know more generally about how co-op and the different specializations work. 
Most importantly are you enjoying/did you enjoy the program? How useful has it been for you/do you think it will be for you after graduation?
Thanks in advance!

Grade 12 Biology in Summer School
I plan on going into health science/life science for university then go into pharmacy.

I'd like to be less stressed next year when applying for university because I know Biology is known to be quite difficult.

How difficult is the content in comparison to at school? Should I take chemistry 12 instead? Should I even take biology?

I'm still in the process of taking bio 11 right now; I don't have any marks for reference but grade 10 science I had an average of 92 and a 91 in chem.
Should I expect similar marks in biology 12 in summer school as how I do in grade 11?

I won't be doing any extracurriculars/taking a trip anywhere over the course of the month.

Also, what sort of marks should I be looking at to get into a program that offers high GPAs when applying for school of pharmacy?
