Didn't get into western med sci or general sci (my first choice) or mac life sci. My average was mid 80s. I got into UTSG life science and a few other universities like waterloo life sci and queens sci, but the only three I'm actually considering are UT, Ottawa health sci, and guelph general science.
It was my fault for slacking this year and messing up my chances at a great university. I'm really torn because I know I'm capable and just need to get my act together, but I'm unhappy with the university choices. UT accepts just about anyone for life science and they weed people out first year. I have people close to me who went to UT same program and advise against it, and many of these people have become doctors themselves. They say it ruins your GPA and is really tough and stressful, and no coop opportunities anyway.
I was going to go to UT but now I'm doubtful. I'm thinking of going to Guelph first year and I'd try to get really high grades so I can transfer to western's general sci or med sci program 2nd year because they seem like a more reputable university. But what's the switching process like? I heard it's really tough.
I'm not too sure what I want to do for a future career, all i know is I want to go to graduate school (so that's why I want to go to an easier undergrad program so I can maintain a higher GPA), and either dental school or pharmacy (whatever I like better), and nursing as a backup.
Please help me out, I really don't know what to do and I only have a couple of days to decide. Is it worth coming back an extra semester?
This is just a thread for applicants entering HBA1 in the fall at Ivey Business School (people actually starting HBA1, not high school applicants for AEO), feel free to share when you got your acceptance!
I am searching for a full scholarship in Canada as an international student. Being a citizen of Mauritius , its quite hard to find the necessary funds to achieve when it comes to go abroad. I am presently doing my B(Eng) in Mechatronics engineering (4th year) and i would like some help concerning the steps to be awarded a full scholarship to do a Masters Degree in Canada. Thanks.
Hii! I'm an international student currently applying to the University of Toronto and I still haven't gotten an admissions decision! I honestly don't know why it's taking so long. They received my last package on April 13th, and then they didn't update the documents received tab until May 12th. My application status says "Not yet reviewed", and I'm freaking out because I got into UBC and Waterloo and I need to accept or decline those offers by June 1st.. I only have 7 days left! Needless to say, UofT is my first choice.. How long does it take UofT to review applications once documents have been updated? And then how long does it take them to make a decision? I feel like it's a terrible sign the fact that I still haven't heard anything from them! Help :(
Hi! Does anyone know the average cut off rates for the computer science (co-op) program at UTSC? Does an average of 86 give me a good chance or no? Oh and one more thing. I've yet to receive my first term midterm marks, but I know I did horribly in Chemistry (70 on the dot or maybe even lower). But I'm not considering my Chem OR Physics mark to be in my top 6. In my top 6, I have adv functions, calculus, english, international business, and I'm planning on taking 2 easy courses next year, to boost up my average. So to sum it up, this semester, I only have advance functions and english (since I'm not counting Chemistry) as one of my top 6.. Will they send my Chemistry mark to UTSC as well? I'm panicking, because it might impact my acceptance.. :/
i have just accepted my offer to Rotman commerce and would like some input on good courses to take. I want to go either into banking and finance or go on to get a law degree. what classes would be most beneficial to me? (other than the required courses)</p><p> </p>
Next year will be my first year at at UofT, as i was accepted into Rotman commerce. is there any finance/banking/investment internships i can do in the summer between first and second year. or are all the internships for the later years? i wish to stay on UofT res in the summer and work or do internships in the city at large firms. is this possible or do i have to wait?
I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.
1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:
1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year
So I this is a pretty stressful time for a lot of you, who are applying to business schools across Ontario, and just wanted to give back as this site helped me while I was choosing which school to go to. I currently go to Schulich, so feel free to ask questions about the student life, admission grades, extracurriculars, possible chances, and things like that! Good luck :)
So I am applying to the Schulich School of Business Delayed Entry Program!!!I know..everywhere it says that there's no point they hardly accept anyone! Plus there are like no forums where I can chat with people who are applying or who have applied. If you are applying or have applied, I would really appreciate if you could post your experience. Especially mention what gpa you applied/you're applying with and what school you applied/you're applying from
I really could care less about how prestigious a university is because I really feel that the program and facilities itself is much more important. A uni could have the best prestige in the world but crappy facilities, which is obviously highly unlikely but for certain programs it is actually true.
I feel like your choice of university should also depend on what you plan to do after undergrad studies so if you want to go med school, law school etc., a uni with easier academia would be better in that case and grad schools in Canada don't give a flying f*ck about how reputable your school is! This is just my honest opinion. I am tired of kids bashing each other because one of them goes Waterloo and the other goes to York. Who cares? You guys are all getting a wonderful education and that is the most important thing. If a person is happier at a different school, isn't that what matters the most? I respect everyone at every school regardless of what bachelor's degree they are pursuing. We should all just respect each other's decisions and just help each other out because the world really sucks and I just think it's important to be kind. This is super cheesy.
I won't lie though, UofT is my favourite university in Canada. lmao. I just contradicted myself in a way but yeah. Make wise choices my homies because we all deserve to have the best education and a life full of joy so f*ck prestige and block out all da crap talkers and choose a uni based on your preferences. Good luck to everyone! Every single one of you deserve to achieve your dreams!
Hello, I am very interested in U of T's President’s Scholars of Excellence Program which offers $5000 and additional benefits. However, there is only a limited amount available. I was hoping that any individuals who received this award could please tell me what their average was at the time of application as well as the courses that were included in their top 6 average.
I am interested in the Scholars Program and the presidents Scholars Excellence Program offered at the University of Toronto. The numbers may have been different in years past but they currently offer $6,000 and $10,000 respectively. Would any past or current recipient of any of the two awards mind posting their averages?
