Low average for first semester
So my average is pretty low for the first semester and I doubt that I will be hearing from any unis any time soon. If I bring up my 2nd semester average to an 85 at midterm (overall with first sem) what're my chances of getting in? Program cutoffs low 80. I just want to know if I mess up first semester and bring up my marks 2nd semester midterms, do I still have a chance of being accepted?

Is Data useful for first year statistics (business)? It wont be counting in my top 6, but do you think its worth it? Note: I am already taking Calculus this semester

High School Class of 2016 Offers of Admissions
The Applications thread is pretty cluttered so I was thinking we could start this thread to make it easier to view when others are accepted to programs you've applied to! 

Please include in your post:
- Program
- Date of offer
- Date of application
- Admission average (Grade 11, first semester, second semester midterm - whatever was used in determining admission qualifications)
- Province
- Any supplementary information (Ex. ECs if they're required on application, predictions about quality of essays/responses)
- Any other information you deem appropriate!

Good luck guys!

Uni prep!
Got my acceptance for UofT (st george), University college earlier this week. Social Sciences (Econ).

What should I expect?? I grew up in Toronto but very rarely went downtown.. would you recommend dorming or commuting?

Also, any advice from senior students on how to keep my marks top notch as I do plan on continuing my education (MA/PhD)?

Western University Transcripts
When should I mail in my official transcripts?  I'm an Alberta student, and the only thing on my to-do list is the self-reported grades form.  Should I send in my transcript now, or wait until they put it on the to-do list/email?

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!

Does a Grade 11 IB class count in admissions?
I'm in my grade 12 year (regular stream) and I took a grade 11 IB course that I was interested in (it's split into two years i don't know how it works other places). I ended up doing really well and was wondering if I could use it for admission to schools that look primarily at grade 12 grades.Will it count for scholarships at all? I couldn't find answers anywhere else.
