Thoughts regarding college degree programs?
Hello everybody! I'm approaching senior year High School and interested in applying to business/finance/accounting programs. What I have noticed here in southern Ontario, is that university cutoffs for these programs are very competitive, (85+ averages), whereas for college degree programs they are minimum 65%. Some of Seneca's programs are even CPA accredited and offer mandatory co-op. Say I want my CPA designation (which I'm looking into), my question is, what are the pros and cons of a college degree, and will opting for college degree programs be any better or worse than university degree programs in the long run?

do grade 11 marks matter
ok so i just finished my first semester of grade 11 and mt marks were not good at all.

76% in health care 

68& in english 

70% in drama 

and 50% in chemistry 

I'm scared that these marks will affect my chances of getting into nursing, kinesiology or dental school just because of one semester of grade 11. i don't want to do early acceptance, so I'm not sure if these marks really matter. I've also heard that nursing at lakehead university  is very easy to get into  for nursing. can someone give me some advice.
Ask me anything about nursing...
So I've seen these type of posts back in high school and it has helped me gain a lot of insight of particular majors. So a bit about me, I am a first year nursing major at the York/Seneca collaborative program. I started clinical rotations already and I think I have adequate knowledge about my program to answer questions about it. I can talk about placements, how schedules are made, GPA requirements to stay in the program, average in getting into this program, any misconceptions etc. Leave your questions below and I'll be happy to answer your questions.

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. 
105D Nursing Applicants!
I have a couple questions - 
Does your application only count after you have submitted your supplementary application? Do 105 application get lesser priority than 101? (Ryerson Nursing)
Has anybody been accepted yet? If so, what average and when did you apply? Thanks guys and good luck with all of your applications!
Colleges in Toronto: Art Fundamentals programs
I'm a 24 years old female from Switzerland and I'm going to Toronto next year to do an university pathway program at a language school (April - August). After that, I'm planning to go to a college with something like an one year Art Fundamentals program, which covers many fields like graphic design, animation, photography etc. Because I don't know which subject I want to focus on yet. I've graduated with an vocational diploma in business and I've been working in this field ever since. So I don't really have any academic background in art.

But I've been able to be creative in the past at work, like designing Xmas cards, calendar and I also like drawing, photography, making firefox persona in my free time. I really like art so I want to change my career and I want to do that abroad, as I want to travel and widen my horizons.

I've been researching for a long time and found these colleges with basic art programs:

George Brown College: Art and Design Foundation Program (1 year)
Seneca College: Art Fundamentals (8 months)
Humber College: Art Foundation (1 year)
Centennial College: Art and Design Fundamentals (1 year)
Sheridan: Art Fundamentals (1 year)
OCAD: First-Year Art

Humber sounds good, so I'm planning to apply - but does anyone know more about the other colleges? I would choose based on their courses but an overall experience or opinion about the college itself would help me a lot to make a decision as well.
Tbh I can't finance the studies, but I will still apply and try to get scholarship/credit and work on the side to make it happen because I really want it.

Sorry for my long post D: but I would be very glad if you could share your opinion or tips etc. It's my first time going alone abroad. Thank you so much!

Applying to Nursing Programs 2017-2018
Hi! I'm currently a grade 12 student interested in nursing. I have a 94% avg from grade 11 but my grade 12 avg isn't looking too hot. Most of my required courses are in the high 80s to low 90s. My avg will probably end up in 85%-90%. 

I'm planning to apply to the nursing program at McMaster, York-Seneca, Ryerson-GB, and Ryerson-CC. My backup programs are Life Science at Waterloo and maybe Biology at UofT. McMaster is my first choice but I honestly don't think I'll do well on the CASPer test.

What are my chances of getting into McMaster if I do mediocre on CASPer? How long should the answers be? How did you study for CASPer? Any advice? What are my chances of getting accepted into one of my choices? What are my chances of getting rejected by all of them? What other schools (located in Toronto) should I apply to? Is it a bad idea to commute to school (approximately 1.5hrs) while enrolled in nursing? 

I'm pretty stressed out over this so any answer is greatly appreciated!

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?

Going from University to College with really low GPA
Hi, i'm currently a student a WIlfrid Laurier University in the Computer Science BSc program, and i'm thinking of transferring Seneca for police foundations to pursue a career in law enforcement. The only reason I got into compsci was due to the pressure from my strict asian parents, and now i'm in a program i don't like, with my GPA in the trash (my current grades are in the 40-60 range). I was wondering if I my current University grades would affect me if I decided to drop out and apply to Seneca for police foundations. Thanks!

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!
