I applied to Undecided Science (BSc) and Biomedical Science (BSc). York has gave me an alternate offer to Liberal Arts, but when I check on myFile, it still says no decision yet for the two programs I originally applied for. The last day to get an offer has passed, so do I still have a chance to get in to my original programs?

Please Answer ASAP
Where to go
I already accepted u of t rotmans but now I'm thinking it's not the right choice. I mean the dropout rate is crazy plus I'm commuting first year. I got accepted to degroote and Laurier Econ. At Laurier all my friends are there plus at Waterloo too... It makes me sad that they're living the life there and I'll be at Toronto grinding my ass off
U of T or Ryerson
Any advice or inputs are welcome! 

So I'm deciding between UTSC Life Sciences non co-op or Ryerson Medical Physics with $500 entrance scholarship. Which program/school should I choose if I am hoping to pursue optometry or Masters in the future? 
I'm really depressed right now. Don't know what to do. HELP :( :( :(
    I've always been a music lover since I was little and my dream is to pursue a career in music composition. I'm also pretty decent at math and the sciences, which is why my parents and my family relatives wanted me to go into engineering. I've had many debates with my parents and it didn't work out. I thought maybe I should just give up my dreams and obey my parents since they've worked so hard to raise me. They even immigrated to Canada to work on low wage jobs in order for me to have a healthy environment and less rigorous education (I came from China). 

    So I stayed away from playing music in the past 8 months and focused on my academics. I was a slacker from grade 9-11 and my marks were in the 60s and 70s, and even 50s. Because I care a lot about pride and prestige, I worked really hard this year and competed against the top students in each of my classes, and I got accepted into U of T Electrical Engineering. 

    Getting the marks needed for engineering admission at U of T was a really big stretch for me because of how bad my foundations and study habits were in the lower grades. I've pissed off a lot of my friends and teachers this year because of how academically focused and stubborn I became. Some of them are going to different universities this year and I really regret not spending enough time with them. I don't even know if I'm going to enjoy my life as an engineering student and engineer. I can't switch into music because my parents will be disappointed in me and I will feel bad.

 Is it worth sacrificing the things you enjoy doing and live on pride and live for others? 
Nursing Hopefuls 2015!
Hey everyone!

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 common guys, reveal yourselves! ;)
Is uOttawa only good for law and politics? Not science and Engineering?
Is there a point in going so far and spending so much for engineering when I can go to Ryerson?
They have co-op unlike ryerson, which has an internship, but in the end they are both just average schools for engineering right?

Queen's Residence Application Questions
Hi I'm currently sending in my residence application for Queen's and I just have a few questions!

1. It says to send in UP TO 5 choices. Can I just send it one or two then? Since I really don't want double and up, I only want a single room :)

2. Do you pay extra to be on a "Living/Learning Communities and Theme Floors"?

Thanks in advance!

Need some Advice - Queen's Commerce Conditional Offer
Hello Guys,

I have been accepted to Queen's Commerce, have my parent's approval to go, but on Monday I found out my calc mark dropped to a 76.3 from an 80, cause I had a bad vectors test (ironically I did this the same day I got my acceptance). We did one more test and I know I did well enough on it, so my mark should go up by a bit. I have one more test and a 30 percent exam to finish (I plan to start studying this weekend).

I am wondering if I should accept my offer and make sure I kill these next two evaluations, or accept another offer instead of Queen's. Queen's has been my top choice and I worked hard for it, and I dunno if it is wise to give it up cause of one bad math test.
McMaster vs Queen's for engineering
I have been accepted to both McMaster and Queen's for engineering, however, I can't decide between the two. I do not know which engineering discipline I want to pursue, so the general first year is good for me. Which school is better based on the program, reputation, campus and uni life?
Guelph VS Queen's??
I need to make my decision by tomorrow and can't come to a conclusion. I am choosing between Honour Bio-Med at Guelph and Honours Science at Queen's. I visited both campuses and like Queens' campus better, although the city of Kingston was sort of dead. Guelph is only an hour away from Toronto (where I live) so I can come for visits next year easily. I guess my deciding factor should be about the program...which one is better? Although, I also want to hear about campus life.

please has anyone heard from Carleton regarding your admission? I'm an international student and applied for the graduate architecture program but I'm yet to receive a decision.

Please help . General Admission questions
i am an indian student and i have applied to york. I uploaded my 10th grade transcript. I am yet to send my documents. Also i cant contact them through email(i couldnt find one thought !). Firstly, do i need to send them my 11th grade transcripts as well ? and the midterm transcripts also ?
I have applied to the computer science program at york. I had a 9.2 gpa on a scale of 10 in 10th grade (that is approximately 90% on a scale of 100%). My problem is that my school is pretty strict and i could only score 55% in 11th and in my mid terms i could score 57% . My finals are yet to happen in march. So , my question is that
1. Do they give conditional acceptances ?
2. Do i have a chance to get into york if i get an 80% or above in my finals ?
3. Will i be eligible for scholarship ? (because my results will be out in the month of may)

Kindly answer asap.

York University/Seneca/Georgian Nursing ASK ME?
I am pretty sure there are not that many students here thinking/discussing about York-Seneca-Georgian's nursing program. But for the few lost souls out there who have a question, feel free to ask me :)

I have been answering most questions via Facebook as admin of the collaborative nursing group.
But if you would like to personally ask me anything about it, feel free to either post or message me here or find me on Facebook (Rhey De Castro). Please mention that you saw this post on StudentAwards.

Otherwise enjoy your Summer! Trust me nursing is one long road! :cyclops:
Tips for Calculus and Vectors exam?
Hello guys,

So yeah, I will be heading to Queen's Commerce soon and I am so far meeting the conditions on my offer, except for Calculus, which I dropped an 80 to a 76 (Damn vectors). Luckily, We have an assignment plus another test on 4 sections, 9.1-9.4 coming up, which I plan to ace. However, the moment of truth thing is the exam. I hope to bring my mark up to a 77 or a 78 with the assignment and test and get a 89 or 90 on the exam.

Do you guys who do 90+ in Math exams, which I plan to do, have any tips. I will start studying this weekend and plan to look over old notes, redo chapter reviews (and sections if I was weak in them), focus on my weaknesses as well as redoing old tests. Do you guys have any tips to get a solid 90 on the Calc exam?
