McGill Life Sci vs UOttawa Biomed Difficulty
As a grade 12 student striving for medical school, undergraduate grades are crucial. Is McGill's life science program as difficult as it is said to be? If so, is it worth going to this school for the prestige, or would attending UOttawa for easier grades be more beneficial in achieving my final medical school goal?

105D Applicants Update For Engineering
Hey guys, I'm a 105D applicant and I just wanted to create a thread for us so people can know when universities are giving offers.

If you have received and offer please state the details and your marks. If you have questions feel free to ask.

I have applied to waterloo, uoft, ottawa, mcmaster, and queen's for mechanical engineering. So far I have received offers from 
Ottawa- feb 13: Must maintain 80%ovr
McMaster- march 15: Must maintain 85%ovr
Waterloo- march 15(accepted): Must maintain 85%ovr and min 70% each subject

My 11th grade avg was 89%
My predicted results for 12th grade is 96%(But I know I probably dropped a few % in my finals)

I didn't have any great or outstanding EC's so I really don't know how I got Waterloo this early, that too as a 105D applicant. Anyways, I accepted the offer with out even thinking about it.

uOttawa 2nd Year Mechanical Engineering- AMA!
Hey everyone! I did one of these last year and it seemed to help a bunch of people so I thought it would be good to do one of these again. I'm currently in 2nd year Mechanical Engineering with co-op at uOttawa! Feel free to ask me anything about residence, campus life, living in Ottawa, academics (even outside of engineering), admission, etc etc! Whatever comes to mind! Some background info:

-I play on the quidditch team (it's a real thing and we're fantastic)
-I was in Civil Engineering first year, then switched into Mechanical this past summer
-I originally applied and got in for Electrical and Civil
-I lived in residence first year (go Stanton!) as I'm from the GTA

Ask away! :)

Engineering Application
Hey Guys, I already applied to University, but many of my applications are still pending. I applied to 7 unis for Mechanical Engineering, or General Engineering for the ones that only have it. They are:
1-University of Toronto - Mechanical Eng
2-Queen's University - General Eng
3-University of Ottawa (Double Degree: Mechanical Eng, Computing Technology minor)
4-University of Waterloo - Mechanical Eng
5-McMaster University - General Eng
6-Western University - General Eng
7-York University - Mechanical Eng

I'm in grade 12, and in IB, my average is an 87.8 overall.
Chemistry - 90
Calculus and Vectors - 83
Advanced Functions - 83
English - 91
Business - 92
Physics - Currently Enrolled

I just made uOttawa, but I am still confused to which university I will make or go to...
So far uOttawa Trumps York, Western and McMaster. Is this a good decision? I am currently living near Toronto, and heard good things about uOttawa's co-op. It's also good, as it's a double degree. Ottawa also offered me 2,000$ for admission scholarship, and is going to pay me a minimum of 1,000$ per term, which is decent.

I just wanted to share opinions on the unis I applied to, so that I can make a good decision.

I've already applied to university but am now considering another school as well, is it too late for me to apply? OUAC says "Note: The OUAC still processes applications received after this date and distributes them to the universities; however, specific university deadlines will apply." Is this accurate? is there still a possibility of me getting in or should I just wait to see if I want to transfer the first year? Thanks!

c) 0.0002x^2 + 0.0642x + 940.993=0

About universities acceptance
Hello everyone..
 I applied for UBC, SFU, university of waterloo, university of Toronto, McGill university, York university.(all i applied for faculty of arts - economics) 
My grade 12 grades (81%) My class English 12 grade is 81% but I got 43% on the English provincial exam. So the final grade is gonna be 66% 
Physic 83% 
Biology 93% 
Pre calculus 82% Those are my top 4 courses. I know my marks are really low. Nevertheless I studied really hard. I am really worried about my English mark for universities requirements. Most of universities require minimum 70% in English. But for York university, it doesn't say about English requirement grade. 
 1. Am I possible to get into York university? (Have you guys heard of someone who got accepted with this kind of marks?) 
2. Or can I get into any universities with this average? 3. I have to take ielts test or Toefl. ( But is there any way to get into York university without ielts or toefl? Thank you guys.
