SHAD 2016 General Thread
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?

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.

Economics exam tomorrow... should I go?
It's an extra course basically. I don't need it. 

Should I just not study for it and not do it. Because universities only look at your top 6 marks right?

Waterloo or Guelph?

Okay so a bit of background, I plan on becoming a genetic counsellor, and to do that I need to get a MSc in genetic counselling after my bachelors. So in Canada, there are only 4 schools with this program, and they all accept between 4-12 students a year. There are a ton of programs in the US that I'd be applying for too that accept more students than that. Anyways, to get in for that I'll need a good gpa, (I think most programs want an average of 75%+) one on one counselling experience, lab/hospital experience (volunteer/paid), since most genetic counsellors are in hospitals. Plus a bunch of specific courses

So I was thinking, which school should I go to for my undergrad? I've been accepted to Waterloo for Life Sciences- Biology with Co-op. (later on, specializing in molecular genetics), Guelph for Molecular Biology & Genetics and Psychology (its a bachelor of arts and science rather than a bachelor of science) and York for Bilingual Biology (iBSc) and I've pretty much ruled out York at this point.

I think they both have their pros and cons. Like at Waterloo I'll have co-op and can get some of that experience that would look great for my masters, and good clubs to join. but also the courses for my first two years just don't sound appealing to me. Like, I physically recoiled after reading the average first year courses. I visited the campus and really didn't like it. But co-op is great though. And after the first 2 years, the program gets more specific and it looks good from there. It feels like a "don't worry it gets better" situation.

At Guelph my program doesn't have the co-op option though the courses just seem so much more intriguing since I get to do an arts and science program. Plus I also think it would be easier to get a high gpa here than at Waterloo. And I really loved visiting the campus and I could see myself going there. I could still continue taking my language courses and psychology, but still take chem and bio, the two sciences that I actually like.

I spoke with some counsellors at Guelph while I was there and they said I can volunteer with the student counselling service there for that counselling experience, there are labs and hospitals I can go volunteer at, and there are also courses in my program I can take which are basically community projects and  I could do something relating to my field.

Idk what to do. I was also gonna join the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors as a student member while in school too, maybe try and find volunteering positions with genetic counsellors.

idk this is a long post what would you pick

Waterloo AIF Question
Hey guys,

So I recently submitted my AIF but something came to mind. Let's say I were to do more extracurricular activities/volunteer experience during the course of the grade 12 year and potentially get more awards. Would I have to let Waterloo know about these activities even though my AIF is already under review?

Applying for Uni in Ontario
How does the application process work? 
I know I could wait a couple of years and have the guidance counselor explain it to me, but I'm an interested grade 9 student and want to understand this process.
Is a personal statement necessary?
Do you apply to each school on their websites or do you mail things in?
Isn't there one website where you can apply to any university?

Sorry for my lack of knowledge, I'd love the help! 
Thanks in advance!

Odds of McGill acceptance?
I am a grade 11 student currently heavily interested in entering the life sciences program at McGill for my undergraduate studies.

I have done alot of preliminary research and I have a few questions about the results. 

I saw 2015s admission standards for this program, it was 93%.

My first semester average was 91% including one AP and one pre-AP course.

Is 93% the cutoff standard for McGill university?

What are my chances? I volunteer at my local hospital, shadow a doctor and am a peer tutor at my school.

Is there any hope for being accepted to McGill university, I am by no means looking for early acceptance to this university.
UBC Acceptance Chances?q
So I'm a grade 12 student in Ontario.
I applied for Bachelor of Arts at UBC on the 5th of December.
My Grade 11 average was 92% with a 98% in English.
I have English this term so I obviously don't have a mark yet. Here are me Grade 12 first term marks:
History: 92
French: 97
Physics: 86
Kinesiology: 88 
(Average 90.75)
What are my chances? I know I can do really well next term as my hardest classes this year were Kines. and Physics.

Feel free to ask me any questions about your application and I'll be sure to respond whenever I have some time.

Good Luck! 

EDIT: LOL you all have a lot of questions, glad to see the enthusiasm!

Scholars Electives
Is there anyone who can give me insight on the Scholar's Elective program? I haven't really  heard much about it from people who were actually in the program and I really want to know whether it's worth applying for. Also, for anyone who got accepted, how were your extracurricular activities and what were your marks? Sorry for all the questions, I'm really curious!
