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! ;)
English 12 provincial discussion
Hey guys, I'm  going to be taking my provincial next month and I'm nervous AF. For those of you who took it in January, could you please tell me how you found it or what the themes or essay questions were?  Thanks in advance!
Residency???
I haven't accepted an offer for university yet but I know that you have to give in a deposit for residency by June 1st. Can I fill out universities residency application form before I accept their offer?
UofT is taking soo long!
Hii! I'm an international student currently applying to the University of Toronto and I still haven't gotten an admissions decision! I honestly don't know why it's taking so long. They received my last package on April 13th, and then they didn't update the documents received tab until May 12th. My application status says "Not yet reviewed", and I'm freaking out because I got into UBC and Waterloo and I need to accept or decline those offers by June 1st.. I only have 7 days left! Needless to say, UofT is my first choice.. How long does it take UofT to review applications once documents have been updated? And then how long does it take them to make a decision? I feel like it's a terrible sign the fact that I still haven't heard anything from them! Help :(
UToronto: Engineering
Who else is still waiting to hear a response from U Toronto regarding their application to engineering?

I believe offers are being handed out until May 28th.

I'm an out of province transfer applicant, so I guess it will take longer for me to hear a response than the Ontario applicants.

accepting offers
I have received offers from both UofToronto and UBC. Can i accept both of them? Because I've been accepted conditionally at UofToronto and I'm not sure if i can meet them, but then again i don't want to miss the chance. Pls help
Rejected UofT engineering with 91.7% average and no alternate.
I had a 93% and over in all of my prerequisites and an 80% in English. And yet, I didn't even get an alternate offer. 91.7% overall average.
have I been rejected
so today is the deadline for offers, and I applied to Guelph like 10 days ago, but haven't heard anything. My average was above the cut off I believe too. Anyways can anyone tell me where I can check if I have been rejected?
CARLETON UNIVERSITY 2015 ADMISSION

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.

WiFi On Campus at Western
This is a question for current Western students. I thank you in advance for responding. My question is whether there is free WiFi to be used with cellphones on campus. I understand there is the RezNet in residence, but what I want to know is if students get free WiFi in classrooms, bus stops, gyms, cafeteria etc on campus.

I ask because I am on a tight budget. I want to see if I need to pay for a more expensive cell phone plan with more data, instead of one with minimal data if WiFi is freely available on campus.

Thanks.
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? 
Has anyone been Rejected or Accepted from McGill THIS MONTH??
Just wondering if anyone has received rejections or acceptance during this month only (May)
McMaster Life Science or U of T Life Science?
I applied to both McMaster and U of T for the Life Science program and I was fortunate enough to have been accepted into both of them. I am having a very difficult time choosing between the two schools. If anyone has any positive or negative comments that  may help me make my decision please help me! Also, if you are in either of the programs can you please give me your feedback of the program, the professors and any help that may be provided to students.

Thank you!
Help??
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
Thanks
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? 
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!

Ivey HBA Acceptance Thread 2015
This is just a thread for applicants entering HBA1 in the fall at Ivey Business School (people actually starting HBA1, not high school applicants for AEO), feel free to share when you got your acceptance!

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?
