I've recently been accepted to SFU, but my first choice is UBCO. I'm worried I won't get accepted because of all the previous posts talking about how tough it is to get admitted to UBC (vancouver campus). Does anyone know my chances of getting into UBCO? If they are good? and if you applied to UBCO what grades did you admit with?

My current grades
Pre-Calc 12 - 94%
Calc 12- 90%
Chemistry 12- 87%
Bio 12- 95%
English 12- 86%
Literature 12 - 97%
French 12- 96%
Geography 12- 95%

What do I need to get into McMaster Health Sci?

I'm a grade 10 student from British Columbia and I recently discovered McMaster Health Sci. From this forum I've read that it's hard to get into Mac Health Sci. I once read that getting into Mac Health Sci is as difficult as getting into med school itself. I've already applied to the IB diploma programme at my school, but I was going to do that anyway. The subjects I'm planning on taking are:

English A: Literature HL

Spanish Ab Initio SL

History HL

Chemistry HL

Sports, Exercise, and Health Sciences SL (I'm getting grade 12 bio credit along with the credit from thiss class itself)

Math SL

I'm doing physics throughout the summer. Any advice about the grades that I need? And do you have any advice about the EC's that might help me. Thanks in advance!

First Year McGill BCom Student - Ask Me Anything
I owe a lot to yconic in helping me choose a university so I thought I could help a few high schoolers out. If anyone has any questions about McGill, Desautels, or any of the other big business schools in Ontario, I'd love to answer them!
Mcmaster Question
I just checked my status and i have a blue square that says conditional for life science. Yet i have an accept/decline button. But the accepted offer icon is a green checkmark, does this mean I still have not yet been accepted? Cause when i hover above the blue square it says incomplete, yet I have nothing to do on my to do list, do any of you know if there a supplementary for mcmaster life science?

Thank you
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.

Do universities call your references?
When you put down a reference for a university application like the Queen's PSE, does the university contact the reference?

Which Grade 12 courses should I take?
Hello. My courses for grade 12 have to be submitted within the next few days and I have many courses to choose from. I want to make sure that I select the courses that are going to have the most influence on my grade. I plan to pursue post secondary education in Modern Languages or International Relations. These are the courses which I am debating about:

International Business (BBB4M1)
The Writer's Craft (EWC4U1)
Canadian and International Law (CLN4U1)
Earth and Space Science (SES4U1)
World Histoty: The West and The World (CHY4U1)
Philosophy (HZT4U1)
Challenge and Change in Society (HSB4U1)
Analyzing Current and Economic Issues (CIA4U1)
French Immersion (FIF4UF)
Studies and Literature (ETS4UE)

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!

Help! Where to Study Crim./Poli Sci??
I'm a high school student with low 90s average that wants to get into a BA somewhere in Ontario.
I want to end up going to law school and becoming a lawyer.
In University I'd like to study Criminology (UofT?), Sociology (Queen's?) or Criminal Justice and Public Policy(Guelph?).
Or major in Poli Sci. Or minor in it if the Criminal field worked out haha.
SO I'm just wondering what my best options are? If I went to Guelph, I feel like it would be easier to get better marks seeing as there's less competition and more good grades to give out. But law schools might like to see going to U of T or Queen's? Which has the best programs for what I'm looking at?? 
I'm open to hearing about whatever schools you recommend in Ontario.
Thanks so much in advance!
So I signed into my joinutoronto account and I applied to UTM and UTSG. Under the my applications section on the home page for my UTM my status it says "admitted". There is also an option to accept an offer and there is now a bunch of options under my documents for UTM about my program and next steps and stuff. But I never got an email saying I was accepted and when I click the actual check status tab it says pending review for both campus applications. There is also a new orange tab that says welcome to the university of toronto at the top of my home page and all these options were not here before so it looks like i was accepted but I'm not sure? Does this mean I was accepted to UTM??

HELP?! Did I submit my CHANGES on OUAC too late?!
Hi, I know that February 5. 2016 is the last day to make any changes to your programs/schools. I'm afraid because it says it takes about one business day to finalize the changes made. I  submitted on Feb 4 at 11:30PM, and i was just wondering if it is still considered late submission?! I greatly appreciate it!

Thank you :)

Taking a Year Off?
I know that it's common that individuals who take a year off after highschool often do not get back to education, however if someone does take the year and does go back, is taking a year off really that bad? I grew up in a home where I was taught that the idea of taking a year off is disgraceful and that It was meant for people who couldn't get into university the first time, however im not scared about getting into university. I have mid 90s!! We are on a treadmill, we go to school from 4 to 22, then we must get a job, often times nowadays an undergrad isn't enough so we need to go for a masters 2 more years. We are supposed to retire at 65 but what happens if we don't reach there? We wasted our life away. That's just my way of thinking about it. I am so than happy to here your opinions on this. 

I want to hear the pros and cons of each decision, because I want to try to make the most educated one that I can

Good luck guys!
