First Year Queen's Commerce Student, ask me anything!
hey everyone, I am a first year commerce student here at Queen's, and I was active this time last year when I was making decisions on where to go, so I thought I would help the next group of applicants with any questions and such! :)
Is French worth taking throughout all high school years?
It's course selection month and I am unsure if I would like to take it again in gr 11. I'm currently taking French right now but I'm not exactly sure if I like it since there is a lot of assignments and I am taking some science courses next year

Queen's Admission Bursary?
What are the requirements for the Queen's Bursary application? I see one question asks about income less than $6,200? Is that the number of income we have to be at? What if my parents have higher income than that? Can I still apply? Can we skip questions? I tried to save some that I had answered it but it wouldn't save until I completed everything.

Engineering Chances with current situation
My final first semester marks were:
English: 82
Adv. Functions: 88
Religion: 92
Chem: 75 (really hard teacher, highest mark was a high 80)

So this semester I have calculus (ive already done this in the summer), physics and chem (retake).

I applied to engineering at McMaster, Ryerson and Waterloo (don't laugh).
Please give advice/feedback as to what do now? Im confident I can get 90's plus in calculus and physics but chem is hard.  Im predicting to get my final average between an 88-90.

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 Ottawa science program
So I applied to uottawa for a science program. I need both advanced functions and calculus. For calculus, on the website it says that students who do not have calculus can just take the course in uni or the summer prior to school starting. So for the 6th course of my prerequisite if I don't take calculus, which mark would they look at? I'm guessing any other u course?

UofT Scholarship
I am aiming for their entrance scholarship. 
I do not have a 92 average as of now, however I am aiming for that.
If UofT reviews my application and I do not stand at an average of 92, will they come back to review my average (midterm marks) to see if I'm eligible for that scholarship still?

I go to a semestered school, so I only earned 3 credits so far, but I did earn a credit for the one required course needed to get into the program I want. 

Also, OUAC emailed me today stating that they've sent in my marks to the universities I've applied to. How long may it take for UofT to get to my application? Because right now, the status says pending review.

$6000 U of T Scholars Program
What average is expected for the $6000 U of T Scholars program award? It is given to the top 550 averages, so doesn't give an exact grade. I have a 96 average and don't know if it's possible or not. Does anyone know what the average was in the past or what to expect for it to be this year, or also when we find out if we get it or not? Thanks!

Life Science or Biomedical?
Hey guys,
A question had recently been bothering me. I've applied to life science w/ coop at waterloo and I got in. My final goal is medical school. From some research I did online I saw a lot of people applying to biomedical sciences instead. Im worried. Does life sciences not have the pre-reqs for medical school? Why do people pick biomedical over life sciences, especially if they want to go to medical school?

Guelph BioMedical vs Waterloo Life Science (BioMedical)
I am currently in grade 12 and these are my top 2 choices for university next year. I have already gotten into both. I got a $3000 entrance scholarship from guelph and $2000 from waterloo. I like both but am unsure of which one to go to. Which one is better known for this program? Which is better to get a higher GPA? Which has a better student life? Which has better support programs for students? Which has nicer residences with more probability to get the residence you want? Which prepared you more for life after university? More extra-curriculars? Anything information will help.
