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.
Computer Science

   I have decided that I want to study economics or computer science when I go to university (hopefully UFT/UWO). I am taking the required courses for economics for gr 11&12 but only one computer science course in each grade. When I was choosing my courses in February, I was told that physics is not necessary for computer science. Since many of my gr12 friends are receiving their admissions, they're telling me that physics is required. I'm not at all good at chemistry and physics but am extremely good at math. Also, I have looked at university admission requirements for comp sci from Ryerson, UFT, Western and they all require either chem or physics. I am unsure what to do because I am positive that I will absolutely fail in both classes
Western acceptance
Last week I received an offer of admission to westerns health science program however that was my 3rd choice within western, above it I had western nursing and then western/fanshawe nursing. Does this mean that I will not be accepted to nursing?

First Year Schulich Student- Ask Me Anything
Hey Guys!

I'm a first year (BBA) at Schulich right now hoping to specialize in accounting. I know first hand how strenuous and stressful this whole process can be. This forum really helped me out when I was applying so I thought I would pay it back and help the 2020's. Feel free to ask me any questions about your application and I'll be sure to respond whenever I have some time.

Good Luck!

Whats the diffrence between honors, combined honors and major? Can you later get a graduate degree with taking major sciences? If i apply to honors does it cost more and if I dont get in am i automatically considered for major?

Which Grade 12 courses should I take?
Hello. My courses for grade 12 have to be submitted within the next few days and I have many courses to choose from. I want to make sure that I select the courses that are going to have the most influence on my grade. I plan to pursue post secondary education in Modern Languages or International Relations. These are the courses which I am debating about:

International Business (BBB4M1)
The Writer's Craft (EWC4U1)
Canadian and International Law (CLN4U1)
Earth and Space Science (SES4U1)
World Histoty: The West and The World (CHY4U1)
Philosophy (HZT4U1)
Challenge and Change in Society (HSB4U1)
Analyzing Current and Economic Issues (CIA4U1)
French Immersion (FIF4UF)
Studies and Literature (ETS4UE)

Four of my courses are occupied by Sciences, English and Math. Are there any courses which are candidates for the summer? Which ones are best to take during day school and online? Thanks!

Non Semestered School Uni Acceptance Help!
Hey there, I go to a non-semestered high school and wanted to know how many grade 12 final marks I need to be eligible for acceptance (not early acceptance). I have 2 so far, so do I need a minimum of 3 or...?

Thanks, much appreciated!

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

Need Help - Extracurriculars
So here's the thing. I'm in grade 11, and feel like I have no volunteering I can use to apply for university. I am part of Student Council, and a elementary program where I go once a week and help a grade 6 student with math. what else can I do to make my volunteering profile stand out? I want to hold a leadership position, I want to make a difference, but I don't see myself getting any opportunities. Any ideas how to go about this? Even in my school, in the various clubs I am interested in, the executives are chosen, and I feel like every year it's the same ones, so there's no way I can become part of something like that. HELP?

Second Year Computer Science (Co-op) Student At University of Waterloo
Hello everyone, 
Many of you may want to ask me questions about university or anything really. I will try to do a weekly QnA session (at the very least I will try to have one up once a month) where I'll compile questions from the week into a single blog post on my blog. Best way for you to get your questions to me will probably be to comment on the newest Questions and Answers post or shoot me an email. I will check this thread periodically as well so that may work too.
