WLU BBA and Computer Science program
Will Laurier be admitting students into their BBA and Computer Science program in 2016? On their website it said they wouldn't be admitting students into the BBA and Computer Science program in 2015.

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!

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?
Business programs and repeated courses?
Is it possible to repeat two courses and get into the business programs I've applied to (schulich, Ivey, queens, rotmans, Laurier). 

I have to repeat my advanced mark as I took it in grade 11 and got 87, and my English mark this year is an 87 as well. Although my other courses are weighing out my average some what, I don't think I'll get in to these schools with the 90% average I have, probably need atleast 93+. 

Any ideas if I can repeat two courses? I know rotmans doesn't look at repeats so that might be out of the question entirely.

Waterloo Math/CPA Applicants
This is for any prospective students applying to the Waterloo Math/CPA program.

I'm not sure if I will have high enough marks. (my aif is a little above average)
Calculus: 94
Advanced Func: 94
English (summer): 92
Morality: 97
International Business (expected): 92
Data (expected): 94

That comes to a 93.8%... so I'm not too sure about my chances (expecting an average euclid score)
Feel free to post ur marks, etc and discuss.

Can someone clarify requirements of Early Admission (at UCalgary)?
Early admission requirements state that you need an average of 90% or higher in grade 11, and that "Students admitted under this pathway must meet the final admission requirements for the program to which they are offered admission."

I take this to mean that in grade 12 you do not have to maintain an average above 90%, and just need to meet the Standard Admission averages? (i.e. Mid 80s: Applied and Environmental Geology, and Geophysics;  High 80s: Biological Sciences) Can anybody confirm?
Laurier BBA
I am in grade 12 right now and I plan on going to laurier to do my BBA next year. I just want to know how hard the program is starting from first year, not in terms of coop or anything but just maintaining the average to stay in the program (70 in business courses, 60 in others). I took easy courses in high school but I have the ability to study a lot when needed and that is why I am wondering if I will be able to maintain the average.

Full Course Load? Do I need it?
I am applying to Waterloo for engineering and am currently in my second semester in grade 12. I currently have physics, computer science and calc/vec and want to drop my last course which is accounting. Does Waterloo prefer students with full course loads or is it okay for me to drop my accounting course and just take a spare? Also, does U of T look for a full course load when accepting students to Engineering Science?
Biochemistry at York
          I have gotten accepted to York's Biochemistry program and Biomedical Science program. I want to end up in a medical school, so at first, I thought of doing Biomedical Science because it is an easier major than Biochemistry which allows me to achieve a higher GPA. After long thought, I decided that I should so Biochemistry instead because I am interested in it and it has a better job scope just in case I do not end up getting accepted to medical school. So, my question to everyone willing to help me is, How is Biochemistry at York University. I want to know about the difficulty level, course load, professors, and whether you can manage other extra-curricular with the major? I am an average Grade 12 student who gets an average of 85%.

Thanks to anyone that helps :)

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?

3.Can I get some honest reviews on the two universities?Anybody studying there currently?

4.Edmonton vs Ottawa?Which one would you prefer to live in?

I'm so confused..it'd mean the world to me if you could provide me with your honest opinions and insights. Thank you.

Help! My average is 92.3%
On the website it said that they accept starting from 87% for Commerce undergrad.
