Nursing Hopefuls for 2017!
There was already a post for students hoping to become nurses in 2016 (as posted by Molly Perrigo). Now this new post is for those of us trying to become nursing students in 2017! 

So, please share: 
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 in your final year? 

I have applied to Centennial, George Brown, as well as Seneca. 

My backup program is biomedical sciences at Ryerson. 

I'm aiming for an average of 90. 
Business programs I can get in with a 80-85 percent average since I can't pull off a 90?
Idk what I'm doing wrong with my studying but I can't get high marks in math,  maybe i should study 2-3 days ahead instead of the day before. I'm not sure.
Over the next two weeks I have 10 tests to do, and I can't pull off a 94 average for top business schools such as Schulich, Queens, Ivey and Rotman. Maybe if i studied ahead i might but its hard to change study habits.
I know York BAS, Ryerson Bcomm or BBA ( forgot) is easier to get in. Can you guys recommend me other programs that are in Toronto?

Waterloo for health studies
hey guys, just want to know what you guys think about doing health sci (regular) at UW compared to any other uni. at both uni's the cost is basically the same and I will be living away from home. I heard that faculties other than eng and cs don't really stand out but is going to uw for health studies worth it? in terms of opportunities and reputation among employers and future career networking? anyone at AHS at waterloo want to give their opinion?

lol send help!
I don't know which nursing program to choose? 

Ottawa/Pembroke, Trent, or York/Seneca? I've heard good things about all three of these programs, I really want to live on res, but I want my placements to be near the city.
I have lived and worked in onterio for the past two years and a half by the time I start school. I have a ohip card and a onterio Photo ID card. I got the Ohip last September and the photo ID card in like April. I am a independent student. My dad files my taxes though and just files all his kids under his Alberta adress dose this effect my eligablity?

transfer student help
I am currently living at home going to trent uni (bio honours) and also accepted a transfer to waterloo (reg health studies). I need to withdraw from one uni and 'seal the deal' with the other ASAP. My mind was set on the transfer to UW but after seeing threads on how undergrad school doesn't matter for grad school, going to uw only for coop, and I should try saving money living at home, I am stuck on the decision if I should just stay at Trent or transfer. I also know that health studies at UW has a very large course load and not enough space for transfer students like me to take elective to explore other courses. please help me and tell me the pros and cons of each uni and if its best to keep all my credits/GPA and stay at Trent and have the option for double majors or go to UW. (PROS CONS about faculty, social life, city etc)

*no hate since I know you anons love to do that

NURSING PROGRAM: Humber/UNB vs Seneca/York
Hey everyone, which do you guys think has the better nursing program? Humber/UNB or Seneca/York?

 I'm having a hard time deciding which one i should choose. I like Humber/UNB because i heard from my friend (she just finished her first year in RN) that students there are not competitive and its closer to my place(1hr and 30-40mins commute, going there). This means that my placements would also be close to me. But I also like Seneca/York because I would have to res meaning i won't have to wake up really early just to get to class. Also bec I honestly think i would focus more. If I'm my house im usually distracted.

Thank you! 
Seneca@York - Computer Programming and Analysis program - any feedback?
I am a mature student looking to do a diploma in comp sci (already have a degree in business). Specifically looking at Seneca's program (although George Brown is a consideration too). 

Any insight anyone has into this program would be much appreciated! Is it difficult/easy? How are the profs? What do people end up doing after the program? 
Does Grade 11 marks matter?
I am currently in Grade 12 going towards the Nursing field. I want to apply to the following; 

1) York-Seneca 
2) York-Georgian 
3) Humber-UNB 
4) Ryerson-Centennial 
5) Ryerson-George Brown 

These are all collaboration programs. I had lots of problems with a particular teacher (not an excuse). I achieved the following marks last year; 

Math - 71% 
Biology - 65% 
Co-op - 93% 
Hairstyling - 80% 
Chemistry - 56% 
English - 56%
Religion - 72% 

I had an overall average of 73%. I'm stepping up my game this year, due to the point that I want to put my best effort in. My only problem is is will the universities I'm applying to look at my older marks? If so, should I start going to night school in order to boost my marks?
Applying to Nursing programs (Ontario) as a University student
Finishing up my first semester in Neuroscience at McGill and I'm looking to apply to BScN nursing programs in Ontario (Reasons: the only BScN in English in QC is offered at McGill and I'm not sure I'll be able to transfer + I can live with family in the GTA). I'm looking to apply through OCAS since it's cheaper - so I'll just be applying to uni-collab programs (Ryerson/GBC/Centennial, York/Seneca & Humber).

Are there any students who have successfully transferred from a Canadian university to a BScN program in Ontario? If so, to which schools? And what was your university GPA &/or high school avg? Does anyone know which is weighted more in terms of admissions? Do they just take an overall average, or look at your science pre-reqs specifically?
Any type of feedback would be much appreciated :).
I'm not sure what my GPA will be, I'm aiming for AT LEAST a 3.3 on a 4.0 scale. In high school I think my overall average was around 92%, and in CEGEP it was around 94%.

For anyone else going through the same process,  feel free to comment as well :) - where are you transferring from? Where are you applying to? etc.

UTSG vs UTSC vs UTM vs Schulich vs York
The simple question is: Where and what program do I go to complete my education from? The longer story however is:
1) I completed my A'Level in Pakistan before coming to Canada as a student in the 2-year Accounting diploma program at Seneca College
2) I completed my program with a program GPA of 3.5
3) Since then (mid of 2016), I've been working at Scotiabank's wealth management division. To be precise, I'm a CSR at iTRADE which is Scotia's online brokerage stream
4) Since I've done my 2 year Accounting program, alot of universities are willing to grant me credit transfers in their bachelor degrees
5) I'm considering completing my studies part-time now (since I need to work full-time to eventually get Permanent status)
6) York University is most welcoming when it comes to Seneca-York partnerships. It is giving me exact 2 years of credit transfer in their BCom program (formerly known as Bachelor of Administrative Studies). The program is administered by the school of arts and professional studies.
7) York also has Schulich but I'm pretty sure that Schulich won't accept my transfers and even if accepted I won't be given any transfers and I'll have to start over
8) I love UofT PERIOD. I just love the university for no apparent reason. But I'm confused between so many programs across campuses it offers
9) I believe Rotman is only present in UTSG and not in any other campus. Rotman again won't accept my transfers and even if I get accepted, will have to start over
10) UTSC has Bcom as well has BBA to choose from and I have no idea which one is better for me (in terms of reputation and curriculum)
11) UTM on the other hand has just the Bcom program which is the least competitive out of all the 3 campuses (but still really good). Because its not Rotman (like UTSG) nor co-op (like UTSC) and I believe its the easiest program for me to get into UofT, out of all the above mentioned
12) You must be wondering what my area of desired expertise is. Well, I'm confused between specialization in Accounting and specialization in Finance.
13) I've been studying Accounting since grade 9 (thanks to my O'Level and A'Level) and my diploma is in Accounting too which will give me much more transfers in degree related to Accounting
14) I'm currently working in the Financial sector. Helping clients with their RRSPs, Equity trading, etc. which although is completely new to me, still interests me alot. And I also see an upward career in the workplace if I stay working and everything goes accordingly, I see a potential career here at Scotia in the Investment industry
15) Thanks for reading that all. Now my problem is that should I go with programs which are giving me good transfers (considering that I already have a career-uplifting employer) or should I go with Schulich or Rotman which will give me little to no transfers (because they're so muchhh better than the rest that they'll give me new heights that I won't be able to achieve if I keep working at Scotia and get a Bcom degree at York or UTM).
Something? Anything? PS. I won't be going out of Toronto
