First Year Student- Ask me Anything about University Admissions in Canada
Places I applied: 

Got accepted to all of them. Shoot me your questions regarding the application process to the following universities and I'll do my best to answer them for you. If you're a troll, dont even bother wasting your time on here. I didn't have very much guidance when I was applying last year, so I hope that I can provide some guidance to the students applying this year. I know it is quite an overwhelming process, not knowing which universities you will be able to gain admission into, but I can provide you with some general idea of what grades/extracurriculars you would need for the following universities from my own experience.

How universities consider mid term marks
I am applying to engineering so i have 5 pre reqs and one additional course as part of my top 6 average. 
Will unis only look at final marks for this additional course or could they also consider a midterm mark for this course (assuming its the highest mark) 
Acceptance "Waves"
I have heard from frieds that schools do "waves" of acceptances in september, febuary, and then in april. is this true? or do schools just accept applicants whenever they want.
What type of questions are asked during the QUARMS interview?

Will I get in?
As an international student, I am not familiar with the various EC's talked about in here. The country I live in doesn't offer too many internship options either. But I had an aggregate of 95.6% in grade 11 and a predicted of around the same in grade 12. My ECs are basically the president of the environment council, school prefect and member of mock united nations and face to faith club, public speaking and literary competitions here and there, leadership positions in various school committees.  variety of academic awards though. I don't really have much but I was advised to apply for Waterloo AFM, Queens, Rotman, Laurier BBA and Carleton. Do I have a chance of getting in? Please be kind. x

HELP questions
I am currently in grade 11 and am thinking about going into a university commerce program, I don’t have the greatest marks so I am wondering if I have a possibility of getting accepted to UVic or Ryerson with marks such as these or would I have to improve my marks.

**ps. if you guys know any good commerce programs, any suggestions on how to prepare or things that look good on applications please comment!
How are some students so successful?
I am genuinely curious. Students who are able to carry out every single extracurricular activity, win everything, and still perform excellent in academics. How do you do it?

Retake advanced functions? PLEASE HELP
So i have a 70% in the course right now. Next semester i have 1st period, international business ( easy 90), physics, computer science, and calc. The only available class for advanced functions next sem is second period, physics. Im applied to computer science at york uni (low to mid 80s), guelph (80-84), Ryerson (76-85), and uoit (mid to high 70s). My first option is york as it is the closest. 
Should I just leave it at a 70% or should i retake it again and take physics out. I only have physics there because I may switch programs in the future and as a fall back.

Queens vs Carleton for Computer Science
My predicted average after second semester is to be around 84-86. Queens computing is 83+. Carleton is 78-82%. 
The 6 universities i have applied to are 
Queens, Guelph, York(20 minute drive), Carleton, Uoit(50 min drive), and Ryerson which is an hour and 30 minute bus drive. 
How would u rank them from 1-6. More importantly how are the co-op placements specifically between queens and carleton as i don't really want to pay 300 instead of 250 atm. So how is the co-op oppurtunities between Carleton and Queens? Can also regard social life and campus. Should i even apply to Queens computing with an 85% average and will i get co-op/internship??
Part Time Student
Hey guys, if anyone knows if being a part time student affects your admission to universities, please let me know! I spoke with my guidance counsellor and she said I should email the schools, which I've already done... but I can't wait. If someone has gotten a response for this question or a similar one, please please please comment below. (I'm only asking about if it may reduce my chances of getting in, just like if I were to take a fifth year, ya feel. I already know that it may affect the scholarship and sports!) Thank you, SOS, RIP.

What can I do with my course?
I am thinking of choosing BBA with Financial Math in Laurier for co-op for a lot of opportunities that it gives me. I know I can definitely do a Financial course with this degree, but will I also be able to do some forms of accounting in BBA? Is there a minor option in this degree? what are the jobs that i can get with bba w financial math?
Co-Op vs. Prestige
Schools like Waterloo and Laurier have co-op programmes, while Rotman, Queens Ivey Schulich have prestige. In which colleges do I have a higher chance of getting recruited after my course is over? I've heard in some cases prestige is so much greater than whether or not you've been in co-op or not.

Queens Computing Admisson
I would love to hear about other grade 12 students applying to Queens Computing. What is your average like?  I know Queens states 83 % as their cut off but realistically what should I have to play it safe!  What has been competitive for the last few years! Let me know thanks!

Nursing Hopeful 2018
Hey everyone,
I need some advice from current nursing students or grads. I'm really stressed out about university because I really want to go into nursing but I don't think my grades are high enough. My grade 11 average was an 84, and my grade 12 average so far is an 83. However I haven't had my exams yet so this could go up.

I've already applied to Uottawa and collabs, and I'm going to apply to Trent and lakehead. 

Are there any uni programs I can get into? Or is there no hope? 

Thank you!

McMaster vs Queens Vs Dalhousie Vs Memorial
I'm applying to McMaster life science, queens life science, Western Health science, Dalhousie medical science, and Memorial music. Should I get accepted to al these programs, as a premed, which would be the best choice/ give me the best medschool acceptance rate?? What are the pros and cons on each school/program?
Queen's admissions averages?
First time doing this! Let me know if I am doing something wrong.

Here's the scoop: Looking to apply to Queens for Political Science. I meet the requirement in terms of the prerequisites required. My average at midterm was 88.5. I tried looking for the average of accepted Poli Sci students, i would be directed to a link but the page is not found. Any help?
What other schools would you recommend for Political Science?I have 7 U courses and 1 M. Thanks!
