Chances of being accepted?
I'm in senior year of High School and beginning to apply to post-secondary. I've already finished my applications for SFU and UVic. My other schools of interest are UBC (Vancouver campus) and Concordia University, however, my GPA from last year was only sitting around 3.67, which worries me a bit.

Teachers have not sent out any grades so far this year, but assuming I score a similar/slightly higher average, what are the chances that I could get into these schools? I've done some volunteer work, and intend on doing more throughout this year, but don't do any sports or fine arts.

Though I'm not set on what I want to study, some courses of interest include Behavioural Neuroscience, Chem & Biochem, Anthropology, Psychology, Criminology/Criminal Law, Languages (French & English) and Social Justice type courses. Any insight on this/opinion helps, thanks! :)

Concordia University at Montréal
Hi there,

I don't know if it exists, but does Concordia University at Montreal give out entrance scholarships (based on admission average and no application needed). I literally cannot find any information regarding this on their website.

University Choices
I'm really having trouble deciding on Universities. I have 4 choices. I was just wondering, is everyone else having just as much trouble? What university do you want to go to?
Carleton University or Concordia University for Political Science (IR)?
Hi! I am an international student and I'd be transferring to a Canada university very soon. I am posting my questions on here hoping some Canadian might answer my queries on whether Carleton U or Concordia would be a better suite for me.

1. I would be majoring in Political Science (International Relations) and I want to take french up. The reason why I am considering Concordia is due to the factors that it is in a french area -Montreal thus giving me the opportunity to pick it up faster and practice it. But what about Carleton? Is the french program there any good? I have 0 knowledge in french. 

2. I did my research and was told that Concordia is in downtown thus being in the middle and accessible to everything with just a walk away. However for Carleton, it's more secluded and I can only rely on campus as public transportation sucks? if so, how far it is to downtown? 

3. I am also a very athletic person. I cycle, swim, muay thai, run and play netball on a weekly basis. I was told that Carleton has a big ass pool and that they are more physically inclined compared to Concordia and was told that Concordia lacks a lot in their facilities. Is that true?

4. My last question would be the clubs. I am a very active person and I am currently involved in many volunteering events in my area like UNHCR or other NGos. I didn't get much info on these two unis but do u reckon which is more likely to be more active? 

Overall, judging by my questions, do you think Carleton or Concordia would be a better suite for me? I was told that they both have good Pol Sci program so now it comes down to whether which suites me best!

Just curious, is grade 12 easier, or more difficult than grade 11? Or is it the same? Courses I'm taking next year are:

For these courses, will it be harder in grade 12 than it was in grade 11

Does McGill differentiate between Day school and Summer school?
Does McGill differentiate between online courses, summer courses, and day school when considering an applicant?

Cause I was planning on taking my grade 12 English course online during the summer.

I'm an Ontario student by the way, and am considering McGill for engineering.

UOttawa Vs Concordia University
So I've been accepted to UOttawa and Concordia university for CS. Can anyone help me to choose from them. The thing is that I've got a zero knowledge for french and here lies the main problem. Where UOttawa is a bilingual university, montreal on a whole is a bilingual city. So this is causing me to be a bit biased towards UOttawa. But again I really don't want this to decide the university I'll be joining this fall. Please help me to choose the university on basis of school culture, coop, prestige(tbh not matters much), future job scenario,COA. If it helps, I'm an international student.

Thanks in advance:)

Top 6
I'm an Ontario Grade 12 student who will be starting university applications very shortly. I have a pretty good idea of where I want to go to university. However, I am nervous about one of my marks, I had an 87% average for my 3U/3M courses. Although I have just started grade 12,  I already have two 4U credits: FSF4U - French (94%) and MDM4U - Data (64%). I am not planning to apply for any business or sciences program but I am still worried about my math mark having an impact on my university admissions. I will have more than 6 4U courses, so data should not be part of my top six. Should I be worried about this mark even if I do really well in my other subjects, particularly for admission to McGill and Queens?
