I'm contemplating whether it's worth it to apply to a university outside of ontario, mainly I'm looking at UBC right now. But what are your guys opinions on this because ontario already has most of the top universities in Canada, so would there even be a point in applying outside of Ontario. Btw I'm applying to engineering or CS, also if anyone knows anything about UBC's CS how is the program, from what i heard it's second best after waterloo and what are the admission averages?
I applied for Dalhousie's Bioveterinary Science program a week ago, and I received the letter of acceptance to the program from Dalhousie today. I thought universities take a few months at least to review applications.
Does Dalhousie even look at my grades? I haven't even sent my transcripts yet.
Or is it because the program is extremely non-competitive??
Im am fascinated by the human body, which is why the anatomy/physiology aspect of Kin interests me. However, I am not too keen on the sports/coaching aspect of Kin. Does anyone know if Queens Kinesiology is more science based vs sports based? Can I take science electives?
Ive heard that life science at Queens is brutal. (Very competitive, hard to get good grades). Ive also heard it looks ALOT at biological things from a molecular level. However alot of the courses look interesting.
I am a gr 12 student looking into criminology, I have the option to do 2 years of Criminal Justice studies to recieve a diploma and continue to do 2 more years to recieve a bachelor of arts degree, is it worth recieveing the diploma or is it better to apply for the bachelors degree out of the gate?

I am looking at the nursing program in 4 universities. I really like the UOIT program and the school but because I could have placement in Toronto my mom does NOT want me to go there. She really likes Brock, I don't think that it is the right place for me. She is constantly pushing this school at me. I also want to apply to Western and McMaster. I don't know which program is best and I am so confused. Can someone that is in a nursing program please help me out. I'm so frustrated and I'm tired of fighting with my mom. I want to know which program is best and what the placements and SIM labs are like. Any help would be much appreciated.
I am planning on finishing my OSSD by the end of march. To make full use of my summer, I want to do something productive and also work towards medical school admissions. I will be more free in these 5 months than I will be for a long time. So I want to get some research experience but don't know where to start. Anyone know a good way to get started?
I'm very interested in applying to one of these schools and i need to know whats good about them, whats bad. what average will get me in to them and which one is the hardest to get into. Also what is the party/social life like, which is safest and which has the better reputation. also which uni has the best residency?
I was planning on applying for universities earlier for scholarships but my grade 12 average is probably not going to be 90% +. My grade 11 average was a B (not including electives). This year I jave been trying hard and hopefully I will have at least an 86% average, but im not too sure about that. Will universiites reject me right away if they see my grade 11 grades? Should i still apply early or do I have no chance for getting a scholarship anyway?
Hey guys, I am currently in my gr 12 year at East York CI. So far I have 98% as my midterm mark in chemistry and physics, 99% in advanced functions, and 97% in international business. I did english in nightshool at catholic board and scored 92%. What are my chances at getting into waterloo software engineering. I'm not sure if my high school has a good rating or not, and my ec's are not really good. By not good i mean i don't have any programming experience as part of my ec's.
I have a 92 average in high school currently. However to make it to most engineering programs, you need upwards of 95%. Does anyone know how I can get stellar high school grades. Some people recommend private school, but I know that they are looked down upon for admissions. With that in mind, does anyone have any tips on how I can attain such a high average. Perhaps any high schools within Toronto that are not academically rigorous. If any students on this forum looking at this post had a high high school average, please share your experiences below!
applying for premed, not sure which course to take, here are the options I've narrowed it down to
-Health Sciences @ University of Northern British Columbia
-General Science/Biochem/Honours Cellular, Anatomical and Physiological Sciences (unsure) @ University of British Columbia -General Science to Immunology and Infection @ University of Alberta -Biomedical Sciences @ University of Calgary
any advice towards the degrees themselves or the universities would be great !
so right not im HOPING to get accepted to U of T. the following question does not limit itself to only U of T. i was wondering if anyone knows the difference in terms of work load say compared to biology first year and grade 12. Right now im almost a straight 90 student (most difficult subject and lowest mark for me is english) and i admit i do not work as hard as everyone expects a 90 student to work. i was wondering how difficult it would be for me say mcmaster u of t or western if i decided to work hard. (in your opinions )
I'm in grade 10 currently, and I am home schooled (taking online courses) so I don't have any clubs to add to my application for applying to uni. I volunteer at a senior home and am very well rounded. My marks are:
Math 10 - 94% (I expect it to go up to 96% by the end of term)
English 10 - 95%
Health for life 11 - 79.5
Science 10 - 89%
I think I got 72 or something in world religions 11
I failed accounting 11 b/c I took it during the summer and was in the hospital
Will it show that I failed grade 11 accounting? does this affect my chances of getting in?
I'm very passionate about accounting and I'm really strong in math (not doing too well right now, but I'm on a unit I'm not too good at which is causing my marks to go down a bit)
Do they look at grade 11 marks?
What are my chances for getting in to Waterloo?
I would rather to go to Waterloo b/c of their co-op program, but which is better, Shulich or Waterloo?
If I get an average of 95%+ in grade 12 do I get a President’s Scholarship of Distinction? or is there only a select few number of people who get this scholarship?
If I maintain high marks, do I get this scholarship every year?
