Will I Get in to a Nursing Program?
Hi there, 

It is my dream to become a nurse, but also to get into one of my top choices for school. My main concern right now is that I have taken AP Functions, which is an accelerated course where we do Grade 11 Functions for most of semester 1, and then Grade 12 Advanced Functions from end of semester 1 until the second last month of grade 12. I feel like I made a huge mistake by taking AP instead of University, because my math mark dropped 9% from Grade 10 to Grade 11. My current average right now near the end of first semester is 88%. I am going to be dropping AP Grade 12 Functions and just taking University Functions as well as Data Management in grade 12. 

My main worry is that I won't have Advanced Functions until second semester grade 12, so universities will look at my grade 11 mark. I will be dropping all AP classes in grade 12 and just taking university levelled courses, and I am going to work much harder. I am just very worried about the grade 11 functions mark. 

The schools I am wanting to apply to for Nursing are Queens, McMaster, Ottawa, Trent and Western. 

Hopefully someone can give me some advice :)

Thanks :)

Queens Commerce Non-Chancellor?
It seems like the only way to get into the program is if you are a Chancellor nominee? Is this really the case??

Incoming Commerce/Business 2021 Student
Hey guys! I've been seeing a couple of these incoming student posts, so I thought I'd do one for Business/Commerce in general.

I applied to York Schulich, UofT Rotman, UTM Commerce, Queen's Commerce, WLU BBA, and Western BMOS + Ivey AEO and got into all of them. I ended up choosing Queen's Commerce.

So feel free to reply to this post if you have any questions about any of the above universities or programs. I used this website a ton when I was applying so I thought I'd try to help some 2022 kids :) I also researched a lot for the above schools.

Health Sciences or Nursing?
Hi, I am a grade 12 student and I'm currently frustrated with deciding which program I'd like to major in. I know I want to work in health care and initially wanted to be a doctor and specialize in obstetrics and gynaecology. I was planning to apply to Western's Med Sci but as the year's been going on, I realized that I most likely won't meet the 90% admission requirement and instead, mid to high 80s. I'm not 100% sure if I'd like to be a doctor, though I'm certain I'd like to specialize in obstetrics and gynaecology. I've been thinking of studying to become a nurse practitioner instead, who specializes in that field (if thats possible). Right now, im torn because I don't know if I should go into the nursing program at western or health science? At this point in time, I feel like I still want to go to med school, but I know that doing a BScN will also give me a backup plan, if I decide to go the nurse practitioner route, whereas a Health Science degree doesn't qualify you for anything unless you decide to go to a grad/professional program. Please help me!!!

I am a first year BBA student attending Wilfrid Laurier University, I'm here to answer any questions and clarify any doubts! AMA!!
Hey everyone, 

I figured y'all grade 12 students should have the chance to ask any questions about universities. I'm a registered boother for the University and I can definitely answer any questions about residence life and living alone in general, also feel free to ask about course work/load and basically any question that pops up in your mind! I was in your position last year and I definitely understand the stress that comes with grade 12, just know that it will all work out :)   

I also applied to: • Ivey 
                              • QComm 
                              • Rotman 
                              • Schulich 
                              • Mac Commerce
Queens PSE help
Identify any extracurricular activities and the total number of hours you devoted (or expect to devote) to each. Please include the positions held and whether each is a High School (HS), Community (C), or Other (O) activity (maximum 90 characters with spaces). Activities are valued equally and may include, but are not limited to, the arts, athletics, hobbies, volunteerism, and religious, social, farm and/or household responsibilities

Does this mean 90 characters per activity or 90 characters in total?
Thanks

Will this affect my acceptance? HELP!
I'm currently taking both a course in school AND online. It was too late to drop my day school course so I had no choice but to take them both at the same time. If I do horrible in my day school (get 60-70% as a final mark), but I do exceptionally well in my online school (90%+), will this affect my acceptance to universities like Queens, Western, or Laurier, EVEN THOUGH they say they use the highest/most recent attempt's mark?

tl;dr, will universities care at all if they see a low mark on my transcript even though it's repeated with a very good mark? (they claim they only take the highest/recent one, but I'm not sure if a low mark will make them think twice about accepting me)

AMA 4th Year Queen's Commerce/Computer Science Dual Degree Student
Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since I've been active on this forum! The last time was when I was in Grade 12 applying to uni. I found the advice and info on here really useful, so just wanted to give back with an AMA now that I'm nearing graduation.

A little background on me: I'm doing a dual degree in Commerce/CS which I've somehow managed to cram into 4 years (it was very painful, do not recommend). I'm going to be working in finance after graduation (signed back with firm I interned with in third year summer). I can answer questions about Queen's life, clubs, the dual degree, or whatever else you think might be relevant.

P.S. A little shameless promotion for my blog post on why you all should consider doing a dual degree: https://canadianuniguide.wordpress.com/2017/11/01/3-reasons-why-you-should-consider-a-dual-degree/

Laptops
Hey everyone! I am sure that some of us are looking in the market for a new laptop. I want to make this thread so current laptop owners can share what laptops they have and how it is going for them.

Any early acceptance for Queens Commerce or other programs in general?
I heard a lot of people were getting early acceptance from other universities like Ottawa or McMaster. Does Queen issue early acceptance for Queens Commerce or other programs in general?

I'm a first year in BHSc at McMaster. Yconic was my life last year in grade 12 and I found all the forums really helpful so I thought I'd make my own. Feel free to ask me anything about the application process, what the program is actually like, or my extracurriculars and stuff. If you're feeling super stressed about anything and need to vent...I get it. I was in your shoes. 

I applied also to:
Western Med Sci
Queen's Science and QUARMS
UBC Science
McGill Science

My average was 98%
