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!!

I applied for both of them for science. I got an offer from mount royal and I have to accept offer before January 2018. Do I have to wait for uofc or accept the offer.

Which university should I apply to if I want to study Computer Engineering ?
I'm a 105F student and I'm interested in  majoring CE. I'm having a hard time deciding on which uni is best for studying CE. I've already had UW in my radar and I'm pretty sure UoT won't make any offers for me so what remains are probably queen's, calgary,mcmaster,rye,ottawa...
My grade average is 9.1-9.2 ish and I have some ok ECs ?

University life?
Hey guys, so I decided to start a discussion about the following universities or any you may want to discuss regarding the overall university life: campus life, academics, clubs, sports, atmosphere, experiences, profs, food, party school type, nearby places located by campus. Basically, how you find the university you may be attending or if you are a transfer and what you liked and disliked.

Thank you!

Lacking Physics as a prerequisite
I am looking to apply to life sciences or computer science and the admission requirements do not include grade 12 physics. After looking at some possible first years courses, I realized I have to take physics. I did not take grade 12 physics in high school due to timetable issues. Do universities allow you to take an intro course for people who have little or no background in physics? Or should I take it the summer before/online? Thanks!

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

Undergraduate Program For Optometry
Hey!

I'm in grade 12 right now and looking into going into optometry.

For my undergraduate program, I was planning to obtain either a:
-BSc Honours in Biochemistry or BSc in Biological Sciences at UofC  
-Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology at UBC  
-BSc with specialization in Biochemistry or BSc Honours in Biochemistry at UofA

Do these programs satisfy the required optometry prerequisites, especially at the University of Waterloo?

Thanks!

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!

I need someone’s help deciding whether or not using the pronoun “I” is appropriate in answering short essays questions on the university applications. If you could help answer this, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

University Varsity Sports - Pros and Cons
Hi, I'm considering playing a varsity sport in university and was wondering if anyone could list some pros and cons? I'm worried that it might be too much in my freshman year with the jump from high school, workload wise. I'd like to have a bit of a social life as well.

For context, the sport is field hockey and I'm hoping to get into a nursing program at Queen's, Western, McMaster, U of A, McGill or Calgary (still have to narrow down).

If anyone has any comments or advice, I would be super grateful!

Thank you!

University requesting transcripts
So far I’ve applied to both UofA and UofC however u of a said I wasn’t competitive enough and did not request my transcript, u of c on the other hand has requested my transcript for now, end of semester one and end of semester two. Does this mean UofC is considering giving me an offer? Or why did one request and the other didn’t. Thanks
