Do I have a chance of getting accepted into any of these universities?
Last year in grade 11 I had a 79% average. This year I am starting to volunteer at my local hospital, babysitting, and working at an elementary school (help cleaning after school). Last year I did One Acts at school. It was for my drama class. Would those be good extracurricularsd for applying to university? The universities I’m applying to are: SFU, UofA, UofC, MacEwan University, and UBC(Okanagan campus). Do you think I will get accepted into any of those universities? I’m applying for a bachelor of science in either chemitry or biology. My second choice is something to do with the environment.

Alberta Universities
So I’ve applied to two universities thus far but I’m scared my grade won’t cut it as I’m in Alberta and they tell you what courses they want. Anyhow my chem bio math and social grade are all between 80 and 85 this is grade 11 btw but my English is at 67. Will that bring me down? I’m planning nursing/chemistry

High School Class of 2018 Offers of Admission
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.

In your post, please include the following:
- Program and post-secondary institution
- Date of application
- Date of offer
- Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications)
- Province you're applying from
- Any other information you'd like to add

Good luck everyone!!

Do I have a chance of getting accepted into any of these unersities?n
I’m currently in grade 12 and am applying to universities. The ones I am going to be applying to are: UBCO, SFU, UofA, UofC, and UofT. For my grade 11 year, I had an average of 78%. I’m hoping to get it up this year though. I don’t have any extra-curricular activitie, A’s for where I live is really small and am in a small school that doesn’t offer much. I hoping to start volunteering at my local hospital soon though. I’m just afraid I’m not going to get accepted anywhere. My dreams schools are either UBCO or SFU. When applying my first choice is chemistry or biology and my second choice would be to study environmental sciences.

Smartness level has gone down?
Hey, guys. So I just finished grade 11 and super pumped for grade 12. But report cards came out and it was the worst report card I have ever gotten in my life! I feel like my intelligence level has gone down. For instance, I had chem 20. I studied so, so hard for that final. When I did the final it was soo easy and I felt like I did really well. Turns out I did not and it brought my final mark down by 6 percent I was just wondering why, after all of the hard studying I did, my mark didn't reflect it. Now it has got me worried. Like if I am not doing well in my 20 classes, how the hell will I get a 90% average in the courses I am applying with. It has also gotten me stressed about uni too. Like, will I even get in and how will I cope for 4 years and the next two because I want to do my masters. So if you guys have nay tips to study better or anything that will help in my later years, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Nursing Programs in Canada
Hi! I have a few questions about nursing programs in Canada.

What are the best nursing programs in Canada?

What makes these programs the best?

And what average would be recommended to get into these schools? Would a 93% be good enough for most of them?

+ any tips/advice from nursing students would be very appreciated!

Thank you so much in advance!

Nursing Programs
Hi there, I'm a grade 12 student and I very much want to study nursing in my undergrad. I was looking into programs and I thought I would just ask here to see if anyone had anything to say about any of the programs below. 

McMaster vs Queens vs Western vs Calgary

Are any decidedly better than others? I can't seem to tell from my research because there are so many factors to consider.

Pros and Cons of each program?

Thank you so much for your help!

My top two choices right now for fall 2018 are queens and calgary, calgary is rated higher for their education program but queens seems like the social scene is better which is really important to me. However, calgary is closer to home (BC). How is the social scene at calgary? is it easy to make friends? How are the profs? Please share of any of your experiences!! :)
Do universities care how many courses you take?
Will universities reject me because I only took five courses durning my grade 11 year?  I had a brain injury that took 16 months to recover from, and during that time I only managed to take English 11, French 11, Biology 11, Chemistry 11, and Chemistry 12. I finished with a 96% average, and am taking the rest of my prerequisite courses (and those needed to graduate) this year. I don't know whether it makes a difference, or not, but I am at a British Columbia high school, and want to study Biochemistry or Microbiology. My top three choices that I am applying to are UofA, UBC, and UofC. I also have lots of volunteer hours, and extracurriculars.

Will I be accepted into university?
I'm currently 17 and am in my senior year of high school. I plan on applying to universities, but what ones will I likely be accepted to out of the ones I'm applying to? I'm applying to UBC, SFU, UofA, UofT, MacEwan university, and university of Calgary. I plan to major in biology, as well. I don't do any extra curricular activities or take any honours course, as my school doesn't offer them (it's a very small school). My grade 11 grades are: 
Math: 73%
Biology: 71%
Physics: 72% (not taking this year)
Chemistry: 81%
English: 67%
Social: 60% (taking -2 this year)
Drama 20: 90%
French: 89%
I hope to increase my marks this year.

Best Computer Science Schools after UW, U of T?
I'm an international student looking to study CS in Canada in fall 2018. I am doing A levels and have good grades, and definitely applying to UW and U of T. While I do feel like I have a chance of getting in, I cannot afford these universities (UW doesn't have any major scholarship for international students and U of T has one full tuition but my ECs are not tooooo amazing) and was wondering other schools that might be equally/nearly as good which may be more affordable too.
I am considering the following factors (in that order):
-co-op, employer reputation
-social life

College application and sat scores, 2 different email
My college application will be sent through my school email, but my SAT is registered from my personal email on collegeboard. Should they be synced to one email. Does this have any effect on the application if both send from 2 different accounts?
