So I just got my acceptance to Queens engineering today after waiting and got waitlisted for a while. In the meantime I already accepted UofT and I'm wondering if I should still go for Queens. What would be a better option? Thanks for your replies.
- Away from home, my household is kinda annoying lol
I'm planning to pursue and get accepted into a Computer Science course. My main 2 univerities I want to join is University of Waterloo and University of Toronto. I am still in Grade 11 and the ones marked with an asterik are still not final marks and can improve or "deimprove." I just want to know the thoughts of others and what I should improve on to make sure I get an acceptence letter from my 2 wanted universities. I live in Edmonton, Alberta if that is needed and our Diploma Exams (grade 12 finals from province) are worth 30% now except for Math 30-1 because I took it in Grade 11 where they are worth still 50% (AP yo)
English 20-1 - 72%* (I think I can get 75 on it by the end if my teacher is cool)
Social Studies 20-1AP - 75%* (Uh..probably lower. Social is dumb)
Math 20-1AP - 92%
Math 30-1AP - 85%* (Diploma is worth 50%. Diploma is all M.C and N.R. I feel good to get it to atleast 88%)
Physics 20-1AP - 83%
Chemistry 20-1AP - 90%* (I can get this to 92-93% most likely)
Programming 20 - In Alberta, these courses are options and are marked basen on 5 modules so not an entire course. So I had 5 modules and a final project (optional module) which basically averaged from 99%-100%. I also finished a Grade 12 module in this time. I plan to take Programming 30AP next year so I will be writing the CollegeBoard Exam for Computer Science and I will be planning to take the Iverson Exam as well in University of Alberta.
I'll also try to take the Euclid Exams from UofW if possible. Other than that, for Grade 12, I've dropped AP in Physics and Social. Math 31AP is still a go (Calculus for Ontario somewhat) and thats about it. Hope to see some thoughts later on.
Just like the title says. I graduated from Guelph with a B.Sc in Marine and Freshwater Biology. I gave campus tours and was a Residence Assistant for 3 years (I lived in L\A, Lambton, Maritime (South Res) and Mountain (South Res)).
I've decided to matriculate at Schulich for the upcoming fall. I currently maintain a 92.8 average but I'm afraid that I will struggle in the program. Do you guys who have attended schulich or other business schools have any ideas how to maintain a high GPA (8.0/9.0+, 3.7+)? Any advices will be great, thank you!
Hey, if you have been waitlisted for nursing programs post below
Mention what school, what average you have and when.
Hopefully this will help people know what the chances of them are getting in are and as well as will know which schools have an active moving waitlist.
Good luck to all :)
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
I have a feeling this was asked a couple times... but I know that our average can go down by 5%, but is it from the same courses that they used to accept us?? [sorry bad format]
for example... for my faculty i require "two approved grade 12 courses.." my highest when i self-reported was"English Literature 12" with an 88, but currently my highest grade 12 course changed to "Calculus".. will they look at English Literature, or Calculus..? [again, sorry for this terrible English hehe T_T ]
On ouac it says "The Admission Information Service is a service that allows applicants to determine which universities may have places remaining in specific programs." Does this mean if there are openings in a program you were rejected to, you will automatically be considered for a spot? Or is there another application?
Now I was considering Guelph, Laurier, Western, or Ottawa.
Are they better (for GPA purposes and for academic reasons) than schools such as UofT and McGill (which are well known for ruining people's GPAs)?
So far, every admissions officer has told me the same thing; they do not care which unviersity you do your undergrad in, if your GPA is high, and your MCAT is good, you will definitely get in.
So my question is, which school will give me a high GPA, and best prepare me for the MCAT (based on program and opportunities)?
Seeing these posts, they are all such classic high schooler responses and posts. McGill, Rotman, Queens, Ivey, Schullich, Laurier and UBC are all really close in being the best programs for business. Everyone says Western and Queens are the best schools and people are stupid for going to U of T or Schullich or McGill. They are not. They're are benefits in all and honestly Rotman and McGill are ranked and regarded internationally as really prestigious schools. When making where you will apply to, take your own views into account rather than others!
