Nursing Hopefuls for 2018!!
There has been posts like these in the past years, so I decided to make one for 2018 applicants!

You can share...
1) What school(s) you`re applying to?
2) What other programs are you applying to as a backup?
3) What overall average are you aiming for at the end of the year?
4) For current/past nursing students, what is your advice for anyone applying for nursing programs this year?
5) Where have you been accepted? If you don't mind sharing, with what average?

I am applying to Western, McMaster, Brock, Ottawa and some collabs!
Hoping for a 90 average this year.

In your post, please include the following:
- Program and post-secondary institution
- Date of application
- Date of offer
- Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications)
- Province you're applying from
- Any other information you'd like to add

Good luck everyone!!

What does this mean? Like lets say my midterm marks is an 83% avg and it increased to lets say an 87% avg before May 8 would they look at that mark (is this interim) or midterms??

This is a really weird question.
I am a grade 10 student and I am going to write the OSSLT in less than a month right now. The OSSLT is a literacy exam for grade 10 students that is administered all throughout Ontario by the government. You need to pass it in order to graduate.

I'm very curious about something though... What if I decide to "troll" on this exam? For example, the exam will have us write a news report. So, what if I choose very absurd and stupid names of people and places in the report? What if I wanted Kim Jong Un in my news report? What if in the news report, a school event take place in Hopeless Dreams High School? What do you think will happen? Would my marks on this exam drop?

Kinesiology and Chriopractic School
I am currently a grade 11 student in second semester and have began to look into become a chiropractor. I havent done amazing in the 2 science courses that I have taken and for those reasons I was wondering if it would be better for me to apply for a Bachelor in Kinesiology rather than Sciences. However, I have been looking online and have not been able to see if I can get into chiropractic school with a Bachelor in Kinesiology. All they’re talking about is a 2.50GPA after 3rd year. I wasn’t just wondering if anybody has any information. It will all be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I have seen a lot of discussion on the forums saying that Queen's University usually sends acceptances on Wednesdays, and a lot of people anticipated that the University of Toronto would be doing their March round this week. Similarly, does anyone know when Western will do acceptances? I get that no one probably will but I'll just ask anyway in case. Thank you in advance.

Wilfrid Laurier Health Sciences
I know Laurier is looking for mid-80s averages but I have a low 80 average. I already did the supplementary application but I'm unsure if I can secure a spot still. Anyone know if I can still get in?
