SHAD 2016 General Thread
Hey guys! I just submitted my application for SHAD 2016, so I'm wondering who else already submitted? :) I don't know if there's already a SHAD 2016 thread so I just decided to start one. If there already is one, can someone direct me there?

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!

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.

Queen's reference?
Hey all,

Does the referee for the PSE have to be able to attest to your extracurricular activities? The way that the question is worded, it seems like the person must be able to speak to the EC you wrote about. I was going to use a teacher (which is apparently preferred) but she can't speak to any of my ECs. Anyone can clear this up for me?

Thanks for your time!

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?

Ryerson Engineering. Should I be Worried?
So in grade 11, I had a 90.00% average. Currently in grade 12 semester 1, I have a 90.50% average. I applied to biomedical engineering and track one engineering at Ryerson University. Most of my friends who applied with lower averages have gotten acceptances into computer engineering, aerospace, etc. over 3-4 weeks ago. I still haven't heard from Ryerson. Should I be worried? Should I call them? Any advice would be appreciated.

AMA: University of Guelph Science 3rd Year
Hi everyone,

I'm here to answer any questions you have about Guelph or even anything in general. I'm a third year at the University of Guelph, Majoring in Biomedical Science with a minor in Neuroscience. I'm also looking into switching into Brain & Cognition as a major at Guelph. I'm actively involved in extra curriculars at the university and in the city of Guelph so I know a lot about the clubs on campus (I actually manage some!). I'm looking into going into Medical School in the future as well as obtaining a Masters in a Psychological/Neuroscience area. I'm an out of province student and I also receive financial assistance so you can ask me about almost anything. I'm familiar with other universities as well, including McMaster, Queens, and UBC and I can tell you why I chose Guelph over the other universities.
5th Year BBA/BMath Double Degree - AMA
Now that I have some time this term I'm open to answering any questions you might have about the DD programs at UW or WLU. I can also answer any questions you have about the BBA program at Laurier or Math at UW.

If you don't have specific questions, read my other thread (buried somewhere between forum changes) for my thoughts on most common questions bout the program.

A little about me:
- 5 work terms completed. I have worked in Toronto (Bay St) and New York (Wall St)
- Majoring in Mathematical Optimization (Operations Research) and Finance

English 12 Second Semester- Admission offers?
I am in grade 12 in a semestered school system. I am applying to UBC and SFU. I have English 12 in second semester. I want to know if there is any disadvantage to this, because I have heard that it is much better to have English first semester for UBC? Will this delay my offer of admission or can they base off early offer of admission based on my grade 11 English mark (which was a good mark)? I would appreciate if anyone here who has been throught this; had english second semester and got accepted to ubc/sfu, tell about when they got their offer of admission, and whether this is true

public administration and policy management @ carleton
I'm really excited to have been accepted to the PAPM program and im 99% sure that I'll be going but I still have a few more questions that I would love if some current students/grads could help me with. 
When I look through lists of courses I would be taking throughout the 4 years, it seems like there isn't much room for electives? Am I looking at this wrong or is it true that you'd have only 4 elective credits total? I was hoping to do a minor or at least take some courses in a different subject area and now I'm unsure if that will be possible. 
I also just wanted to know more generally about how co-op and the different specializations work. 
Most importantly are you enjoying/did you enjoy the program? How useful has it been for you/do you think it will be for you after graduation?
Thanks in advance!
