Im in grade 11, and i took all 3 sciences and I'm not doing that well in any of my courses this sem except for english. I decided i want to go study criminology. i want to apply to york , ryerson, and uoit next year. what average should i have inorder to be accepted to any of these programs. (my first choice is york)
Hello! I am really hoping to get into track one at u of t next fall. However, i don't know if my marks are good enough. Can anyone tell me what the admission averages are? How heavily does u of t weigh EC's? If anyone is in track one could you tell me what marks you got accepted with? Thanks :)
UofT - Engineering Science (I know how it is, I"ve heard pretty much everything about it and I'm still going for it)
Uwaterloo - Computer science
Carleton U - aerospace engineering
and my averages are going to be (at the minimum, I'm predicting):
Adv. Functions: 95
Calculus and vectors: 95
English: 82 (it's because I met a horrible teacher in summer school and I'm thinking of re-taking it in night school, which I hope to get around high 80s)
My EC's are: currently bronze cross (lifeguard process), robotics team for 3 years, now a senior member and one of the leaders, and swim team. Back in grade 9, I was in a soccer team. I also was a certified peer tutor for school where I helped out a grade 9 student with math for a full semester. I've taken two math contests (fermat and sunlife open challenge) which I didn't win in neither of them. I'm planning on taking Euclid next year. I'm not sure if it helps but I've also been a honour-roll student for 2 consecutive years, grade 10-11 and most likely for grade 12 as well.
I would really appreciate it if you can tell me what are my chances of getting accepted to these programs and if they are unlikely for some of my choices, please tell me which to improve so I can work on them even harder before it's too late, I just want to have a general idea of what my chances are.
Secondly, I would love to hear suggestions on alternate options to those programs that I applied since I have very little knowledge about engineering programs and I'm planning on applying for more programs. My major interests are 1. aerospace engineering 2. computer science, specifically information security and then software engineering
What is the competition like for both the VicOne and TrinOne programs? Do they weight grades more heavily than application of vice versa? What about getting a residence spot in these colleges? Is it hard?

As the titles mentions, I'm currently trying to rank the colleges at university of toronto on OUAC. I'm very confused how to go about ranking the colleges. What would be best for someone wanted to major in physics or math and physics??
I just realized this morning that I forgot to sign and date the second page of the application. I bought priority mail so I know my application has gotten to the office. WHAT DO I DO???? Are they just going to throw out my application because it's not signed?
I understand that many careers are in demand (engineering, nursing, accounting), and it is very likely for these majors to get jobs after university. But if all students pursue these majors, wont there be an oversaturation of these majors and other positions will not be able to be filled? Dont we need some people to pursue arts and sciences?Someone please explain this philisophy.
I know that University of Toronto - St. George only lets you apply to one stream, and if you apply to more than one, they ignore the other one and do whichever is ranked first. What other universities have this? Does York do this too? (I'm applying to Computer Science and Math, so if I don't get into Comp Sci, will they reject me for math too because they only consider the higher ranked program?).
I was wondering if there is anyone here who has been accepted into University of Toronto Downtown campus for Computer Science. I am in an American high school and was just wondering what is the GPA/Averages that you had when you got accepted. Maybe SAT/ACT scores were also given? I Currently have a 3.7 GPA with a 30 on my ACT & Im also taking 3 AP's. How would that be If I wanted to apply?
I was wondering which university would be the best to apply for political sciences program. So far I've looked into the honors arts and business in waterloo, political science (co-op) in uottawa, poli Sci in carleton (co-op). It's for my undergrad degree and I really can't choose. Also, I'm planning to do a MA after. Please list the top 5 :)
Hi, I was wondering what my chances of getting into Schulich are with my current grades and extracurricular activities.
Accounting - 99
Data Management - 94
Advanced Functions - 86
Current Average: 93
Next semester I will have the following classes and these are the grades that I estimate I will have:
Business Leadership - 95 to 99
English - 87 to 90
Calculus and Vectors - 87 to 92
International Business - 95 to 99
Conservatively estimated average after all 6 courses have been complete: 91.33
As for extracurriculars, I have only a few in the past two years, but I have dedicated a lot of time to them. I've participated in:
DECA - as a regular member in grade 11, made it to Provincials that year, doing it again this year as an Executive Leader and I have made it to Provincials again.
SAGE - started this club at my school this year, I'm a founder and executive member here as well. For those that don't know, SAGE is a club where you start a business within your school.
Yearbook - I played a leadership role here as well and picked out the theme for the yearbook. Library volunteering - worked with young children and helped them read books and make crafts.
I know my Advanced Functions mark is very low but I'm considering retaking that with either Virtual High School or ILC. Anyway, what I'm wondering is if I have a real chance at getting into Schulich BBA.
Hi, my average at the end of gr. 12 will probably be 88-90% so if I were to apply to Waterloo for Life Sciences (co-op) what are the chances of me getting in? If I get rejected, will I automatically be considered in Life Sciences regular?
They say that... Enrolment 495 250 for regular, 245 for co-op
