Should I take grade 11 physics?
So I want to go to university for law... But in in my 2nd semester of grade 11 and I chose to take physics this year. My school allows a class change if you don't like your class but the only other class available was grade 12 English, so I took it. Now I'm having regrets because I not only have friends in the physics class, but I feel like I would be better in a grade 11 class. I had a 70% in grade 10 math and an 86% in grade 10 science. Would those marks be good enough to get around above a 70 in physics. I'm just really stressed cuz I don't want to have 2 englishes in the same year. Thanks in advance!
Parent's won't let me go to college to study.
I'm in 11th grade and I'm thinking about my future. I genuinely feel that I have nothing going for me at the moment. My grades are atrocious and I feel like I might even fail a couple classes. I hope to pursue a career computer related, as computers are the only thing that I have known my whole life, but I am certain that my current grades will hold me back from reaching that field. I feel like grade 12 won't get too much better, unless I manage to find some massive motivation out of my ass that will drive me into improving my grades drastically. Without good grade 12 marks, I know university won't be an option, so I am really considering college where I can study, and then hopefully make the transition into Uni that way, but my parents got extremely mad and started lecturing me for even bringing it up. I'm confident that a decent university for computer science will not consider me with the grades I have, and college seems like the only option, but my parent's are too traditional to let me go that route. It's as if they don't understand that my bad grades are already jeopardizing my chances of going to Uni, so what am I supposed to do? Atleast I'm willing to give college a try, but they just refuse to let me. What do I do in this situation.

Teachers Screwing You Over?
Hello, guys i just wanted to say that my teacher has screwed up my whole chemistry grade. Firstly, this whole semester only once did we get our updated marks. I was at a really low average at midterm but after that I improved so much that I literally went up 10-12 percent. I calculated this on a piece of paper because he wouldnt tell us. So, the day before exams start I ask him for updated marks and he says he doesnt have them and  that our calculations of our marks are more accurate? Wtf Then after exam. I felt I did ok...it was super hard but still think I did decent. In our region there is no exam review day so..I had no idea what mark I had or didnt have. Today I check OUAC my mark is not at all what i calculated..Like do u think I should contact the principal or something like we had no idea of our mark the whole semester, for ex weighting of assignments...we did soo many labs he made us do 1 formal lab all semester..and that was in Septemeber..He gave it back in January. I'm sorry for my english but need help..Like this guy gave speeches in the start of the semester to change our universities, like lower our expectations...

University of Toronto Scarborough for Computer Science (2016 First Year)
Hey Guys.

I got accepted by UofT recently for Co-op Computer Science at UTSC. I had applied for Co-op Computer Science at the University of Waterloo as well, but haven't got anything from there yet. I am an international student studying in the Indian CBSE system.

What i wanted to know was that which University is better in terms of Education, Job Opportunities, Co-op Companies and Co-op Placements, Social Life. Which is stricter in terms of education and also which has better professors.

Thanks guys. I would love answers from current students of both universities and also alumni.

Ontario Universities - Who's putting out offers?
Can we make a thread to attempt to keep up with which Ontario schools have begun sending offers of admission? This is what I propose: If a school you know of has begun sending offers, check the comments. If you do not see the school yet, make a new comment. If you would like to post about your acceptance (average, timing, program) reply to the school's comment directly. For organization's sake. I'll start by putting the few I've seen in comments.

I applied to the mechanical engineering program in u of t and I finished the online personal profile this afternoon, I was really nervous and did a terrible job. Now I wonder if I will be rejected by u of t because of the videos (my average is currently 88).
Offers for MMF at University of Toronto
Any internationals got accepted for MMF in UofT? And does anyone knows when they start giving out offers, if not already?
Business Programs: What are your expected Top 6 Grades?
I'm not here to judge or anything. I want to let people figure out where they stand in the acceptance of the program that they want to get into!

List your Top 6 Marks (expect marks if not yet completed the course) or just your Top 6 Avg.
Also please list the program(s) you plan to go to!

All are welcomed for discussion on your opinion of what grades you may need for each program.

Western vs Waterloo (Engineering/Ivey/Scholarship vs Engineering)
Got accepted to both Waterloo Mechatronics  and Western Engineering with AEO and now I'm applying for the National Scholarships at Western. I'd like to hear anyone's thoughts on this: If I get one of the National Scholarships (30k and up value) would id be foolish not to go to Western? Without the scholarship, I'll probably go to Waterloo and try to get my MBA at Ivey after I graduate and work
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! :)
UBC Applied Biology (Life Sciences)
Hey everyone, I just wanted an honest opinion of my chances of getting into either Sciences at UBC or applied biology. 

My semester 2 final marks are as follows:

Pre-Cal 12 - 90%

Economics 12 - 94%

English 12 - 79% (Destroyed my average, had a 88% in grade 11) ( Also I am still awaiting my provincial exam mark worth 40% of my total grade)

Biology 12 - 93%

Physics 12 - 88%

WEX 12 - 100%

So, my average for my top four courses (including English 12)  is currently at 89%. I know this is a relatively low average for UBC, but was wondering of anyone has received an offer into my particular program choices with around the same average as myself last year. Additionally, my PP is relatively average ( Played varsity Lacrosse, captain of both basketball and Lacrosse, did cross country, started volunteering at a daycare when I was 12 and now I'm the leader of it, volunteered in homeless shelters for quite a long time, was also the coach of a novice lacrosse team, etc) 

Thanks for the replies, if any...

Laurier BBA Second Round Acceptances
With the second round of Laurier's admissions for the BBA coming up (mid February), I figured we could have a post to discuss, in an organized fashion, when people start getting accepted. If you get accepted, please post when you received your acceptance letter, what your top 5 grade 11 averages were, and what your first semester grade twelve marks were. 

Good luck!
