Is Admission Information Services OUAC 105D?
Its very early right now to ask about AIS but does anyone know if AIS is the same as 105D Application or is it just empty seats in universities and if you reapply you may get in?
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?

3rd year Ryerson student: Ask Me Anything!
I'm a current 3rd year student at Ryerson, majoring in professional communications and minoring in law and marketing. Aside from holding 2 internships over the last 3 years, I work as a mentor for first year students and in student recruitment for my program faculty. 

I can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances 
- campus life 
- residence 
- OSAP
- internships and co-op opportunities
- basically any other questions you might have 

Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! AMA! 

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!!!!!!

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!

I applied to all low 80s university programs but my supplementaries are really bad. Do you think universities really look at it?

McGill: What are my chances?
I applied into Mechanical Engineering at McGill, their cut-off last year was 95%.

I'm walking into the application with an average of 95.6-95.8%.
My marks are,
chemistry 30: 99
math 30: 98
physics 30: 97
french 30-9y: 98
english 30: 86 <--- this really screwed me over, i had 93 before :/

Is it likely that I'll even be considered, since the cut-off goes up by the year.

Why Is My Application Taking So Long To Be Reviewed?
I applied for U of T engineering on December 10th, and for almost a month now it has said: "Your application has been reviewed and is now complete. Your application will be sent for review to the Admission Committee within the coming weeks"

However, I know someone who applied a day or two before me and I reached that status only a few days after he did. However, his was reviewed by the Admission Committee about 2 weeks ago. Is there a reason mine would be taking so much longer?

graduation in june, I want to do summer school instead of night school what should I do?
Ok I'm a grade 12 student this year, right now I have 25 credits doing 4 credits in day school I need that one credit to graduate. Usually our graduation would be in October but out of nowhere they push it to June. I was intended to do night school this semester but I have cold feet right now and I feel like I will fail it or do poorly. Right now I'm kinda stressed about my courses I'm taking grade 12 law with no grade 11 knowledge and I feel overwhelm in that and I also feel overwhelm in bussines and in grade 12 parenting. I feel like I'm adding to much to my plate if I just do these courses (I don't even want to do law that much) and have night school. My question here is if I do summer school then can I be able to graduate on time before September 2016? I don't care I can't go to commenment in June I care about graduating and being able to go to college or University. Has anyone dealt with this before and what did you do?
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
Schulich
Brock BAcc
Ryerson BComm

Background
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.
Families in Canada in Night school?
Thinking of taking this course for night school, so it can be my 6th U/M course for university. I can take it during the day but I want to have a spare during day school to focus on my three other courses (che, bio, english). How was your experience with Families in Canada in Night School? Also, do you recommend I take it during the day (and stick with a four-course load semester, I'm in highschool), or am I better off with it at night school? Thank you for your help.
