Queens commerce subsequent offers
Hi guys,

I've recently faced some family issues and have not been able to compete my PSE or other supplementary essays for Queen's commerce. As a result, I know that I will not be able to meet their Feb. 15 deadline, and even if I did, it would be poor quality work. I'm planning to submit it between Feb. 15-Mar.1, which Queens says they will consider me for subsequent offers of admission. Can anyone clarify what this means? Also, what are the chances of me being accepted if I submit within this time period? (assuming I can pull off a good supplemental). Thanks so much. I would really appreciate any answers.

What are my chances of getting into Rotman/Queen's/Schulich/ Sauder
I am grade 12 student from British Columbia and here are my marks:

English 12- 84%
Pre Calculus 12- 91.4%
Physics 12- 94%
Spanish 12- 100%

Currently taking Calculus and have around 93%

My average is 92.3% for the 4 courses without Calculus 12

My essay and video questions were decent. 

I have a leadership role in a Swimming club and a few other one-day events I volunteered

What are my chances?

Grade 12 Biology in Summer School
I plan on going into health science/life science for university then go into pharmacy.

I'd like to be less stressed next year when applying for university because I know Biology is known to be quite difficult.

How difficult is the content in comparison to at school? Should I take chemistry 12 instead? Should I even take biology?

I'm still in the process of taking bio 11 right now; I don't have any marks for reference but grade 10 science I had an average of 92 and a 91 in chem.
Should I expect similar marks in biology 12 in summer school as how I do in grade 11?

I won't be doing any extracurriculars/taking a trip anywhere over the course of the month.

Also, what sort of marks should I be looking at to get into a program that offers high GPAs when applying for school of pharmacy?

Ontario Universities - Who's putting out offers?
Can we make a thread to attempt to keep up with which Ontario schools have begun sending offers of admission? This is what I propose: If a school you know of has begun sending offers, check the comments. If you do not see the school yet, make a new comment. If you would like to post about your acceptance (average, timing, program) reply to the school's comment directly. For organization's sake. I'll start by putting the few I've seen in comments.

Business Programs: What are your expected Top 6 Grades?
I'm not here to judge or anything. I want to let people figure out where they stand in the acceptance of the program that they want to get into!

List your Top 6 Marks (expect marks if not yet completed the course) or just your Top 6 Avg.
Also please list the program(s) you plan to go to!

All are welcomed for discussion on your opinion of what grades you may need for each program.
Commerce Essay
Hello all,

i'm in the middle of doing my commerce essay and I'm a bit stuck on ideas for the second 300 word essay. 
If you don't mind could you post what you guys wrote about. Obviously I won't copy them since they're personal but it would serve as a kickstart. 

Admission Questions? Ask a Current UBC Student!
Hi guys,

I always remember finding this forum really useful back when I was applying for universities in 2012, and I'd like to offer you the opportunity to actually get some hard knowledge about admissions rather than just hearsay. Though I'm in Sauder, I can answer any questions regarding direct entry to all UBC programs, Sauder transfer applications, and general university stuff.

You should all also take a look at the holy grail of UBC admissions, specifically table 18 where all admission averages for all programs for entry in 2013W are outlined.

Hope to see you all at UBC in September!

Ivey AEO most competitive year
This is just a bit of information for people who applied for AEO status. The admissions office said this year they received their highest number of applications to date. In other words, this year is extremely competitive. Good luck to everyone!

How to get high grades (95+) in high school
Hey Guys,

I am currently trying to get into Waterloo Software Engineering. I am in grade 11, so I still have another year to improve my grades. My average (from the prerequisite courses) is currently an 85. I will be completely honest with you guys, I am not a hard working student. I study the basic material the previous day before a test. I also complete assignments the day before they are due. I do not do any of the assigned homework that teachers give me. So, considering these factors, I am surprised to have this kind of average.

That being said, my goal is to get a 95+ average for grade 12 so I can get into Waterloo Software Engineering. I often see students on this forum who have close to a 99 average. I was just wondering what I could do to attain such a high average. General comments like "work harder" would not really help me. I keep thinking to myself "I will work harder next semester", but I never really do this in reality. If I could get advice from a student who has a 95+ average, that would be greatly appreciated. I would also be interested in hearing the opinions of first year uni students who had a 95+ average in grade 12, and their current academic situation in uni.

Thank You.

Western Science
For the students who have been accepted to Western Science, what was the grade they early accepted you with? I currently have a an average between 86-87 depending on the courses they pick from my grade 11 and 12 marks. Will that be fine to get in the next round of admissions?

Queen's Major Admission Awards
Hey, so quick question, my school nominated me for the QUARMS scholarship at Queen's as well as the Chancellor's Scholarship. On my SOLUS all it says is Major Admission Awards: Not accepted for award. And then I received and e-mail from Queen's about not receiving the QUARMS. Does this mean that I also haven't been chosen for the chancellor's scholarship? Or is it just saying that I wasn't accepted for the QUARMS?
Thank you in advance :)

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!

I applied to Ryerson for a BA. I've heard back from all school I've applied to except Ryerson. I have the marks to get in but haven't heard anything. When do they send out acceptances?

To all who recived an AEO offer, what where your ECs and average?
^If the lucky few who earned an AEO offer would share their average and ECs it would give us an idea of whether or not those still waiting have a chance. Thanks and congrats!

Queen's Science Acceptance
Hey there, so I'm a Grade 12 student with a 90% average. Queen's University is my #1 university and I'm very concerned about whether or not I am going to get in. I feel pretty confident in my PSE but I've heard rumours that you need at least a 93% average. I know that every year is different and acceptance average minimums are increasing each year but from what you've seen, what are my chances like? I'm hoping to increase my average for midterms in my second semester of Grade 12, but if I'm simply relying on the 90% average that I currently have, is that enough? Thank you so much for your time
