(another) 1st Year Queen's Eng AMA!!!
Hi everyone! 
I know there is already one of these, but I thought I would offer a different perspective. 
I am currently nearly done first year in Queen's Engineering (we have a general first year, and I am doing Geological Engineering next year - I came in thinking I was going to do Eng Phys but changed my mind about 1000 times). I am also considering doing a dual degree with astronomy, as planetary geology (the geology of other planets, a key for space travel) is my main interest. 
I finished first semester with a 4.0 GPA, which translates to a mid-high 80s average, and am predicting a 4.1 for this semester. 
I have been involved with various sports, arts, and engineering clubs this year. I am also going to be a residence don for next year, so I can answer questions about residence as well. 
I volunteered at both fall preview days and the March break open house, so there's a good chance some of you may have met me! This also means I know a little bit of the ins and outs of admissions and such. 
Feel free to ask me anything about eng, the school as a whole, extracurriculars, or anything else!!!
Cha Gheill!

105D Applicants Update For Engineering
Hey guys, I'm a 105D applicant and I just wanted to create a thread for us so people can know when universities are giving offers.

If you have received and offer please state the details and your marks. If you have questions feel free to ask.

I have applied to waterloo, uoft, ottawa, mcmaster, and queen's for mechanical engineering. So far I have received offers from 
Ottawa- feb 13: Must maintain 80%ovr
McMaster- march 15: Must maintain 85%ovr
Waterloo- march 15(accepted): Must maintain 85%ovr and min 70% each subject

My 11th grade avg was 89%
My predicted results for 12th grade is 96%(But I know I probably dropped a few % in my finals)

I didn't have any great or outstanding EC's so I really don't know how I got Waterloo this early, that too as a 105D applicant. Anyways, I accepted the offer with out even thinking about it.

i got into both for general arts. it's hard bc i know a million times more about ubc than i do about queens. 
so kind of a stupid and bland question, but i need opinions - is queens a good school? can you even compare it to ubc?

UofT Offer of Admission
Hello everyone.
Today I just got admitted into 2/3 programs I applied to at UofT. 
I got accepted to UTM Commerce and I have a question in regards to UTSC co-op Management (BBA).
It says I got accepted into UTSC, but says "Social Sciences and Humanities" and my offer letter also states that.
I did not apply for Social Sciences and Humanities, however, is that just a counter offer since I did not meet the requirements for the co-op management program? And does this still mean I have a shot at getting admitted into the co-op management program later on? 

Thanks, everyone in advance!

Queen's Engineering 2018 Acceptances
Hello!  I was wondering if any of the high school class of 2018 has heard back from Queen's engineering and if you have, what was your top 5 average?? :)

I was also wondering if I have any chance of being admitted if my marks are....
AP Chemistry: 88% (final)
AP Physics: 92% (in progress)
AP Calculus: 94% (in progress)
English (not AP): 90% (in progress)
AP Statistics (data management): 95% (final)
Average: 91.8%

Edit: turns out I actually have a 92 in physics :))
Also, this doesn't go into the calculation of my average but if it helps I have a final mark of 93% in Advanced Functions

My ECs are decent, and I wrote all my AP's on my PSE so Queen's will know that I took them.  I would say that my PSE is average, maybe slightly above average, although I know that this is very subjective. This was only my first submission average so hopefully I will be able to get it to 92.8% at least by April.  Do you think I could possibly get in?

AMA - 1st year Queen's Engineering student
Hey everyone, I'm in my first year of engineering at Queen's University. I remember how stressful this time last year was, as I was waiting for acceptances and trying to decide where and what I wanted to do for the next 4 years! I ended up choosing Queen's engineering and I'm pretty happy with that decision so far!

Ask me anything about Queen's eng or Queen's in general and I'll do my best to answer!

Am i f****d?
The more i think about university the more i get worry about my future. Here is my dilemma. In grade 10 my math teacher forced me to take math applied because he didn't think academic was the right class for me. At the time, i didn't know or care about the difference or the impact it can have on your life. Now i find that i can't apply to any programs that require math (adv func, calculus etc). This really closed a lot of doors because now i can only apply to arts programs which are useless most of the time. I applied to mostly poli science as that's the only path i see myself taking without math. The problem is that i know i will dislike poli science as i am more interested in business and i know i'm not the the poli sci type of guy. What do you guys think i should do.

McMaster, Queen's, or Guelph for physics/chem??
I have applied for similar programs in Physical and Chemical Sciences at McMaster, Guelph, and Queens, and I have already recieved an acceptance from McMaster. I've been looking into the programs at each university, as well as the facilities, campus, and student life among other factors, but can't seem to come to a definite decision on where I want to go. Which of these three universities would have the best experience for a program in chemical/physical sciences? I eventually want to major in physics. Also what are some opinions on what the co op and research opprotunities are like at each of these universities? And thoughts on the general student life (residence, food, student assistance/accommodation, things to do in spare time in and around campus)?
