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!

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.
UofT Kinesiology
Has anyone been accepted to UofT St George Kinesiology yet?
If so, what is your average and when did you get accepted? 
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.
Applied to both college and university
Hey guys, I applied to both college and university. I already got college acceptance offers and they expire on May 1st. What if I don't get a university offer by then? Should I wait it out, or accept the college offer?
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?

Admission requirements??
I'm studying in an American curriculum school oversees but I'm a Canadian citizen. Do I need SATs?? I'll apply for undeclared engineering.
U of T St.George Computer Science

My joinid says that I've been admitted into the program and that they've sent a package containing the details. However, I haven't received an email confirmation. Has anyone who has been admitted gotten one?

UofT Scholarship
I am aiming for their entrance scholarship. 
I do not have a 92 average as of now, however I am aiming for that.
If UofT reviews my application and I do not stand at an average of 92, will they come back to review my average (midterm marks) to see if I'm eligible for that scholarship still?

I go to a semestered school, so I only earned 3 credits so far, but I did earn a credit for the one required course needed to get into the program I want. 

Also, OUAC emailed me today stating that they've sent in my marks to the universities I've applied to. How long may it take for UofT to get to my application? Because right now, the status says pending review.

Western or U of T?
Hi. I have received an offer for health sciences at Western, and life sciences at U of T, St George. Which is better? I am thinking of applying to medical school later on. I have also applied to the Med Science program at Western, but I haven't heard from them yet. Do you think I still have a chance? TIA
Do I have a Chance for the U of T $6000 Scholarship?
If I get accepted, do I have a chance for the $6000 scholarship?

Pre-Calc 12-100% (Summer School, so I guess they would dilute it to 95%)
Chem 12-97%
English 12-96%
Physics 12-93%
AP European History-94% (this is my highest "other" class)

I am an engineering applicant. ECs are 3 sports (won a few awards in one of them), student leadership, and guitar. I also have done well in some math contests.

Laurier BBA Second Round Acceptances
With the second round of Laurier's admissions for the BBA coming up (mid February), I figured we could have a post to discuss, in an organized fashion, when people start getting accepted. If you get accepted, please post when you received your acceptance letter, what your top 5 grade 11 averages were, and what your first semester grade twelve marks were. 

Good luck!

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!

Who has heard back from Ryerson?
I'm applying to a grades-plus program at Ryerson and it says that the admissions for the program I'm going into won't be released until March at the earliest. Was just curious if anyone got accepted for any program so far? What was your program/top six average?

Can you apply for residence before accepting your offer?
I'm still waiting to hear back from McMaster for health sci (decisions come out in may) so I don't want to accept any offers yet. However, I think I will be going to Western if I don't get into health sci, and I want to optimize my chances of getting the residence that I want. Does applying for residence earlier make your chances of getting your preferred residence better? Also, is there a fee involved in applying, and as the title asks, can I apply without yet accepting my offer?

Chances of getting into engineering
@ ryerson
I seriously messed up chemistry this semester and ended up with a final mark of just flat 80. Also took a computer course and had a 90 but final mark is terrible. However it wont be used for my top 6.
First semester final marks are:
English - 90
Advanced Functions - 87
Chem - 80 T_T
Hopefully next semester my marks for physics & calculus will be (possibly mid but aiming for high) high 80s to low 90s. What are your opinions ? What are my chances

○ applied to mechanical and computer engineering
● btw does ryerson send out rejection letters

U of T Rotman vs Western Ivey vs Queen's Commerce: Considering Cost
So, the age-old question. 
I've been accepted into all 3. 

I MIGHT get a full ride to Rotman, I'm guaranteed at least 10k (through the National Scholarship Program).

I am applying to Western's National Scholarship Program as well, but I'm guaranteed at least 10k because my admission average will be 95+ (I say this confidently because I am holding a 99 right now). 

I was accepted to Queen's but did not receive the Chancellor's.

I really don't know what I want to do. Startups attract me, as does nonprofit economic development, impact invest, and social entrepreneurship. I'm not familiar with accounting vs finance vs consulting, but accounting sounds vaguely boring. 

Please help! Thank you in advance.

Queen's Admission Bursary?
What are the requirements for the Queen's Bursary application? I see one question asks about income less than $6,200? Is that the number of income we have to be at? What if my parents have higher income than that? Can I still apply? Can we skip questions? I tried to save some that I had answered it but it wouldn't save until I completed everything.

u Ottawa science program
So I applied to uottawa for a science program. I need both advanced functions and calculus. For calculus, on the website it says that students who do not have calculus can just take the course in uni or the summer prior to school starting. So for the 6th course of my prerequisite if I don't take calculus, which mark would they look at? I'm guessing any other u course?
