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 :)

Ivey AEO Acceptance
Ok so I am currently in grade 12 in ontario and my first semester marks are crap:
Law - 70%
Marketing: 65%
Advanced Functions: 95%

Second semester I will take 5 courses to make up for the only one god mark
So for second semester will look like:
Calculas: 95%
English: 96%
International Business: 90%
Food and Nutrition: 90%
Crafts: 92%

So with my top 6 including prerequisites my average will be around 93% give or take.

I have numerous references and experiences with EC activities so that will be a bonus. 

What are my chances of getting into IVEY AEO since they will see my first sem crap marks even though they will not be apart of my top 6?????????????

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
Just Finished My First Year in Western MedSci - AMA!!
I just finished first year in Western MedSci and I'm going into my second year in the fall. I'm also a 2016 Western National Scholarship recipient (the President's Entrance), so if you have any questions about the program, admissions, or scholarships, let me know!

I can also give some advice on first-year courses if need be - even though I didn't get the most perfect GPA haha (3.8). Also, I can give some insight into a few clubs and the variety/nature of student life!!

Western University Early Acceptance Question
I applied to the general engineering program at Western University just a few days ago (Dec 5th if I recall) but haven't received any acceptance offer yet. Many of my friends at my school have received offers however, which is quite concerning.

My marks are as follows:

12 Functions - 96
12 Calculus - 96
12 Physics - 92
12 Elective - 99
11 Chem - 88
11 English - 78

Average - 91.5 

I thought the reason I haven't gotten in was because I haven't filled out any supplementary application information, but I can't seem to find anything else that I need to submit to the university. I also selected "Yes" for considering AEO opportunity, so maybe that's why I haven't gotten in yet? I also only selected Western as my 5th choice on OUAC, so I honestly don't know. 

So I was wondering if there's any additional things that are necessary for me to do in order to get selected, or was wondering why I still haven't gotten selected. Help would be greatly appreciated

Admission Chances for Life Science plssss
My current top 6 average is hovering around an 87 (Termed, not semestered), and I'm applying for Life Sciences at Mac and Waterloo, General Science at Western, and Trent and York. I'm hoping to get into med school one day, but I'm fully open to other career options that might open up along the way. I had bronchitis for the first two months of school which really messed up my chem and bio marks because of the heavier material at the time, but I'm still confident I could get them up by maybe 4-5% by the time universities see it. 

Classical Civilizations: 97%
English: 90%
Advanced Functions: 87%
Chem: 78%
Bio: 80%
Calc: TBD (projected 85-90)

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.

Nursing Hopefuls for 2018!!
There has been posts like these in the past years, so I decided to make one for 2018 applicants!

You can share...
1) What school(s) you`re applying to?
2) What other programs are you applying to as a backup?
3) What overall average are you aiming for at the end of the year?
4) For current/past nursing students, what is your advice for anyone applying for nursing programs this year?

I am applying to Western, McMaster, Brock, Ottawa and some collabs!
Hoping for a 90 average this year.

Will I Get in to a Nursing Program?
Hi there, 

It is my dream to become a nurse, but also to get into one of my top choices for school. My main concern right now is that I have taken AP Functions, which is an accelerated course where we do Grade 11 Functions for most of semester 1, and then Grade 12 Advanced Functions from end of semester 1 until the second last month of grade 12. I feel like I made a huge mistake by taking AP instead of University, because my math mark dropped 9% from Grade 10 to Grade 11. My current average right now near the end of first semester is 88%. I am going to be dropping AP Grade 12 Functions and just taking University Functions as well as Data Management in grade 12. 

My main worry is that I won't have Advanced Functions until second semester grade 12, so universities will look at my grade 11 mark. I will be dropping all AP classes in grade 12 and just taking university levelled courses, and I am going to work much harder. I am just very worried about the grade 11 functions mark. 

The schools I am wanting to apply to for Nursing are Queens, McMaster, Ottawa, Trent and Western. 

Hopefully someone can give me some advice :)

Thanks :)

Top 6 need to include all prerequisites?
The other day I was talking to a ryerson representative and he mentioned that my top 6 don't need to include my prerequisites as long as I have completed them with a grade of 75+. I was wondering if this applies to the York and Western computer science program. Thanks.
