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.
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!

First year Med Sci student, happy to answer questions!
Hi, I am currently attending University of Western Ontario for the Medical Sciences Program.
I am happy to answer any questions that anyone may have about the program, course load, and overall experience at Western! 

A bit about myself:
I attended a high school within Ontario and received my acceptance to Med Sci in January (or early February?). I was also accepted to multiple science programs from other universities including, but not limited to: U of T, Waterloo, York, McMaster, Queen's, Ryerson, and Guelph. 

Post questions down below and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible!

These are the courses which I am debating about:

Four of my courses are occupied by Sciences, English and Math. Are there any courses which are candidates for the summer? Which ones are best to take during day school and online? Thanks!

Hey guys! I just submitted my application for SHAD 2016, so I'm wondering who else already submitted? :) I don't know if there's already a SHAD 2016 thread so I just decided to start one. If there already is one, can someone direct me there?

Stress management
My marks are as follows- 
Sem 1
English - 90 (in class)

Geo - 87 

Peer tutoring - 100

Sem 2

Peer tutoring 

I already received admission to UNBC, Acadia and UNB. I really want to go to McMaster. I'm stressing whether I'm going to get into McMaster Arts or SFU. Last year the admission ranges for SFU were quite low (78+) now I'm looking on the website and it says mid 80's. Are my marks good enough? 

Does anyone have any advice for stress management??? It's going to be a tough semester for myself & I need as much insight as I can get.

High school marks??
Hello! I am currently in my last semester of grade 12. I have taken University level courses all through out high school but, i plan on going to college for Nursing. Last semester i had an 85% average in all U level courses and i had an 82% average my grade 11 year. I applied to durham, george brown, centennial, seneca and humber (durham is my school of choice) but i still haven't heard anything back. I know that RPN is a highly competitive program so i was wondering if you think i will get in? Also if you know anything about this program (from any of the above colleges) or have taken it yourself i would love to her anything you have to say about it! thanks!

105D Transfer Applicants
Hey guys, I want to make a thread dedicated to all 105D applicants who have applied to any University in Ontario and have been accepted so far. The idea is so we can get an idea of when to expect a decision depending on the university you've applied to! 

I've applied to UOIT for Nursing and have yet to hear back! Please feel free to share your choices!

Call from Guelph University
I applied to Biomedical science at Guelph and today I got a call from a girl who is in the program asking me if I had any questions about it. Did anyone else get a call like this because my friends who applied to Guelph didn't and I've never really heard of universities calling people like that, haha

Are you able to switch between life sciences and physical sciences at UofT and/or McMaster?
Hi there, 

I'm wondering if it is possible to switch between life sciences and physical and mathematical sciences programs at U of T? Like what if I get into life sciences but decide after first year or something that I want to go into physical sciences? 

Same for McMaster, is it possible to switch between life and chemical and physical science?

Should I apply to both life and physical or should I just apply to one and switch if I really want to later? What if I get accepted to one but not the other?

U of T Rotman Commerce? Laurier?
Hi! I am currently in Grade 12 and I just got my 1st semester marks and here they are :
Photography : 96
Advanced Functions : 91
and English : 73........ (sigh)
Well as you see I am really worried that I won't be able to get into Rotman Commerce (1st choice) because of my English ,since they want at low to mid 80s... Second semester is easy for me I have Challenge and Change, Calc&Vec, , and Computer Eng. My average can still be around 89~ 90 ,which I am going to try really hard. So do I still have a chance for U of T Rotman Commerce?? How about Laurier? Do I have a chance for any of these two?
I know most people in BC's first choice is UBC, but has anyone heard back from SFU after they self reported their marks? I haven't heard back yet and I reported on January 4th, the first day it was open.

Non Semestered School Uni Acceptance Help!
Hey there, I go to a non-semestered high school and wanted to know how many grade 12 final marks I need to be eligible for acceptance (not early acceptance). I have 2 so far, so do I need a minimum of 3 or...?

Thanks, much appreciated!
