Odds of McGill acceptance?
I am a grade 11 student currently heavily interested in entering the life sciences program at McGill for my undergraduate studies.

I have done alot of preliminary research and I have a few questions about the results. 

I saw 2015s admission standards for this program, it was 93%.

My first semester average was 91% including one AP and one pre-AP course.

Is 93% the cutoff standard for McGill university?

What are my chances? I volunteer at my local hospital, shadow a doctor and am a peer tutor at my school.

Is there any hope for being accepted to McGill university, I am by no means looking for early acceptance to this university.
what are my chances
I finished first semester of engineering with an 86.17 average what are my chances of transferring to mcgill, u of t, and waterloo, for electrical engineering?
I know most people in BC's first choice is UBC, but has anyone heard back from SFU after they self reported their marks? I haven't heard back yet and I reported on January 4th, the first day it was open.

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?

Economics exam tomorrow... should I go?
It's an extra course basically. I don't need it. 

Should I just not study for it and not do it. Because universities only look at your top 6 marks right?

UBC Acceptance Chances?q
So I'm a grade 12 student in Ontario.
I applied for Bachelor of Arts at UBC on the 5th of December.
My Grade 11 average was 92% with a 98% in English.
I have English this term so I obviously don't have a mark yet. Here are me Grade 12 first term marks:
History: 92
French: 97
Physics: 86
Kinesiology: 88 
(Average 90.75)
What are my chances? I know I can do really well next term as my hardest classes this year were Kines. and Physics.

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!

Scholars Electives
Is there anyone who can give me insight on the Scholar's Elective program? I haven't really  heard much about it from people who were actually in the program and I really want to know whether it's worth applying for. Also, for anyone who got accepted, how were your extracurricular activities and what were your marks? Sorry for all the questions, I'm really curious!

UOIT (University of Ontario Institute of Technology) or Ryerson
I got accepted into UOIT for Health Physics & Radiation Science and Ryerson for Medical Physics. I live an equal distance from both universities, and can't make a decision. What are some suggestions
my written and video essay questions  were kind of similar to eachother so i ended up with similar answers to both of them as well. Will this jeopardize my chances of getting in? I have a 93 avg  with a 86 in eng and 94 in calc

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

Shad Valley 2016 wait list
Hey guys! I got my letter saying I've been waitlisted for shad 2016. I decided to make a post and see if we could all kinda talk and things until we all get our final fate ?
Biochemistry at York
          I have gotten accepted to York's Biochemistry program and Biomedical Science program. I want to end up in a medical school, so at first, I thought of doing Biomedical Science because it is an easier major than Biochemistry which allows me to achieve a higher GPA. After long thought, I decided that I should so Biochemistry instead because I am interested in it and it has a better job scope just in case I do not end up getting accepted to medical school. So, my question to everyone willing to help me is, How is Biochemistry at York University. I want to know about the difficulty level, course load, professors, and whether you can manage other extra-curricular with the major? I am an average Grade 12 student who gets an average of 85%.

Thanks to anyone that helps :)

Queen’s Engineering Admissions / Application Averages
I know there’s a ton of posts out there discussing admissions averages, and I was curious to see how the marks stacked up for everyone trying to gain admission to Queen's Engineering. 

For Queen’s, my top five marks average out to be 90%, and I am submitting a moderately strong PSE with my application by the end of January. (I have a 91% for my top six classes and hopefully that secures entrance to UWO Engineering for a safety.)

Do you think I will be admitted to Queen’s this year? If you are applying to any Engineering program, what are your marks and expectations?
