Doctorate or Second Masters Degree?
I am a teacher and I have a Master's in Psychology. I am considering going back to school (online) and I am considering a Master's in Museum Studies from Harvard through their extension program. I am also considering a Doctorate in Education at a Canadian school. The masters programs and doctorates I am looking at will cost about the same. I hope to advance my career in education. Does anyone have an opinion on this?

First Year Accounting and Financial Management Student (Waterloo AFM)
Hi everyone, I am a first year AFM student at Waterloo and last year I was in your position. I was trying to figure out which university programs to apply to and I heavily relied on this website to make my final decisions from first years in the respected programs. If any prospective students in high school are looking to pursue the AFM program at Waterloo I would love to answer any questions, and talk about my experiences so far! I was admitted with a 91% average with excellent EC's. 

What are my chances?
So currently I am sitting on a 57%, but I have an incredible track record when it comes to volunteering in my community.  I am looking at applying to Nipissing, Algoma, and last but not least Mcgill.  Do I have a chance at getting in for Agriculture.  Here are a few references that have helped me strive in the agriculture department.

Calling on all Concurrent Ed Students!
Hello,  Deciding on the right school and program can be distressing, and to make my decision a bit easier, I'd like to hear from people who are taking a Con-Ed program in an Ontario university and are loving it.  Specifically, I'd like to hear about Con-Ed programming (content, student - professor ratio, graduate employment success rate, residence life) and school experiences from Nipissing, Brock and Queen's students. Thanks everyone.

Data Management in Night School??
Hi! I'm in grade 12 and next semester I have calculus, biology, world issues, and a spare. I was thinking of taking data management because I've been told that in nursing programs, we are required to take a statistics course (please let me know if this is true or not), but there is no data management class in my school next semester, so I was thinking of taking it in night school. Would this be a wise choice, or would the workload of having two math subjects in one semester be too much? 
Some additional info: I'm taking advanced functions, chemistry, religion, and English(online) right now. 
Thanks in advance!

I am currently a grade 12 student. I applied to the BScN Program at McMaster, Western, UOttawa(main site), Nipissing, Trent, Windsor and Brock. My marks are as follows:

Math - 85 (midterm)
English - 85 (midterm)
Biology - 75 (midterm)
Chemistry - 80 (midterm)
French - 96 
ComTech - 83 
Overall average - 84

These are my top 6 marks, including my prerequisites. What are my chances of getting in? Also, if I have received an alternative offer from a school before midterms, does that mean I am not considered for my first choice? 

I was hoping for a 85-88% average this year but due to some family issues was not able to achieve that. It would completely shatter me if I did not get into Nursing anywhere by being just 1% away from an 85%, which is what Nursing usually asks for.

2017 Acceptances!!
Hey everyone
I'm starting a new thread for all Grade 12 students getting University acceptances!
If everyone could list what programs they applied to, what schools, their overall average they have now, and excepted average in the final few months of High School.

I applied to University of Guelph- Criminal Justice & Public Policy, Western- Criminology, Nipissing - Nursing, Brock- Nursing and Laurentian- Nursing!
Right now I have an 80 average but its because I am not doing as well as I had hoped in Data Management. I am expecting a 82 average after finals are submitted. However, I am expecting to have an 85- 86% by the time second semester midterm marks are submitted!
Do you guys think I chance in getting to the Criminal Justice and Criminology program's I applied to? Also does it really matter if you get accepted in March, April or May?

Nursing Hopefuls 2017
Hello future nursing students! I know this is a common thread for students looking towards going into nursing and it would be cool to have it up again for the upcoming year. I'm definitely excited to apply to university and I know a lot of you guys must be as well so ->
Please, share with us:  
1. Which school(s) are you applying to?  
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?  
3. What overall average are you aiming for for your final year?  

I plan on applying to Ryerson Collab Program (main site), and as a back up I might apply to George Brown/Ryerson Collab and York's collab program. I'm aiming for a 90% average but anything above that would be amazing.

I hope you guys get into your desired programs by the end of this school year :)
Nursing Averages??
I am just wondering where the future 2017 nursing will be applying and what your estimate overall average might be. Also, if anyone knows the average admission grades usually are for getting accepted. I will be applying to Nipissing, Trent, Lakehead and Windsor.
