University Admissions - Chemical Engineering, Life Sciences, Biomedical Engineering
I have been worried about university admissions and if my average is good enough to get into the programs that I am applying to. My first option is Chemical Engineering at Ryerson, Biomed at Ryerson, and Life Sciences at Uoft. My average is about an 85 or 86, and my Grade 11 was really bad (68%). What are the chances that I get accepted into each program?

Also, do any of those programs require anything other than my marks?
Early Admissions
Has anyone received early admissions from UofT, Waterloo, Mac or Western? I'm just wondering how soon they start to send them. 

Thanks :)

Yes I'm aware it's early! But the last year thread was made in October and some students end up getting early acceptance so this should be helpful! :)

UofT Application Process?
So I'm a 105D applicant, and I just uploaded my transcript to the UofT portal. What I'm unsure about is whether my application is considered complete. Will UofT start considering me now that I've uploaded my transcript? Or will they begin after I've self-reported my grades in January? I just needed some clarification regarding the whole review process and acceptances. I've been hearing lots about people getting accepted already, and I'm just confused.

I am a first year BBA student attending Wilfrid Laurier University, I'm here to answer any questions and clarify any doubts! AMA!!
Hey everyone, 

I figured y'all grade 12 students should have the chance to ask any questions about universities. I'm a registered boother for the University and I can definitely answer any questions about residence life and living alone in general, also feel free to ask about course work/load and basically any question that pops up in your mind! I was in your position last year and I definitely understand the stress that comes with grade 12, just know that it will all work out :)   

I also applied to: • Ivey 
                              • QComm 
                              • Rotman 
                              • Schulich 
                              • Mac Commerce
AMA: UofT First Year Engineering Student (Track One). Ask about university, engineering, other subjects, admissions…whatever!
EDIT: Just to give another update, I'm half-way through 3rd year right now. Just went through the PEY process and wrapped that up, so if you have any questions on any of that, I'd be more than happy to share some firsthand experiences! 

I was also accepted to Waterloo, Ottawa, and Mac way back when, so you can ask q's about those as well.

Best School for Political Science
Hey guys,
So I've applied to political science at the following schools: 
University of Toronto 

I have already been accepted to Ottawa and Queens. My average is above 90. I'm deciding where to go, but I have no idea which university would be best for my program. My end goal is eventually to go to law school.

Ryerson is getting a law school set to open in 2020

After a thorough review, the Common Law Program Approval Committee of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada has granted preliminary approval of a proposed new law program at Ryerson University. In approving the proposed program the Federation’s Canadian Common Law Program Approval Committee identified three concerns that it will monitor in subsequent reviews.  

The Approval Committee has a mandate to determine whether a proposed law school program would produce graduates competent for admission to law society bar admission programs. All approved Canadian common law programs must adhere to a National Requirement set by the Federation and the law societies that outlines the knowledge and skills competencies that applicants for entry to the bar admission programs in the Canadian common law jurisdictions must possess.  

Until it produces its first graduates, a program that complies with the National Requirement can be granted preliminary approval only and will be subject to regular reviews. The concerns that will be monitored by the Approval Committee in these reviews relate to Ryerson’s faculty complement, program funding resources, and physical resources available to faculty and staff.

You can follow more here - http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/46124-ryerson-law-by-2020-letter-of-intent/?page=8

Let's just say that lawyers and law students are not taking well to this news at all. Tuition is going to be set at 20k and if they are not approved for provincial funding, then tuition will be hiked to make up that difference. 

The curriculum involves having no electives until the 3rd year and being required to take courses in entrepreneurship and coding (which lawyers on the forum find to be pointless academic courses for emerging lawyers).

My personal opinion is that we have more than enough lawyers and law schools. Why are we not getting more dental schools and medical schools?

Repeating chemistry due to depression
I did very poorly in grade 12 chemistry, and am retaking it now. I was suffering with depression the first time I took it, hence the poor grade. I am doing much better in the course now. I called UofT admissions, and they said they will consider a doctor's note as part of my application, but cannot say if they will accept my repeated grade or will ignore it and only consider the first attempt. Has anyone else been in this situation, and how has your experience been regarding admissions. I am specifically looking to apply to UofT and Waterloo for Engineering.

Incoming Commerce/Business 2021 Student
Hey guys! I've been seeing a couple of these incoming student posts, so I thought I'd do one for Business/Commerce in general.

I applied to York Schulich, UofT Rotman, UTM Commerce, Queen's Commerce, WLU BBA, and Western BMOS + Ivey AEO and got into all of them. I ended up choosing Queen's Commerce.

So feel free to reply to this post if you have any questions about any of the above universities or programs. I used this website a ton when I was applying so I thought I'd try to help some 2022 kids :) I also researched a lot for the above schools.

Health Sciences at McMaster
So Last year my avg was so crap. Cannot even explain. Anyways I've always wanted to do radiology at Mac. But after seeing health sci I really like the program and what it has to offer.. Right now i have a 85% in bio, 80% in adv and 90% in religion. I have planned to take: calc, chem and eng next semester. Just curious to know what the lowest cut off for 2017 was; for both health science and radiology. Anyone know any students with a high 80%- low 90% who got into health sci and radiology? Please and thank you :) goodluck to everyone

Supplementary Applications
If I apply for universities over winter break, will they still send me the supplementary applications? 
For example; Will Waterloo send me the AIF even if I apply over the winter break?
