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?
5) Where have you been accepted? If you don't mind sharing, with what average?

Dumbest University in Canada
Guys, I've found it. What all university/high school students have wondered at least once in their lives (don't deny it); the dumbest/worst school in Canada.
(note: honourable mention goes to Lakehead)

Med school interview after finishing a bachelors of bio and nursing
Hey! So I have a med school interview soon at UofT and I’m a bit nervous. So I didn’t take the traditional route to med school. I took a 4 year undergra d in biological sciences at Uwindsor with thesis ( graduated with honours and all med school pre recs). I then went on to Toronto and did the 2 year accelerated RN program which I’m graduating from right now( also with honours). I got a 517 on my MCAT. I’m worried they’ll ask why I did all this school and took nursing and I’m not sure what to respond.
Any Ryerson BComm/BTM acceptances?
Anyone been accepted to Ryerson BComm? Specifically the BTM program? Also may sound dumb but Windsor business vs Ryerson?

Are 3 year engineering programs BS?
So I'm in grade 12 and am going to be taking all the prerequisites for a program at St Clair college for the program "chemical laboratory technology" however, I am wondering from anyone of expirence with this or a similar engineering program if it is hard to find a job after graduation. I'm a bit skeptical that it is a 3 year program for only an advanced college diploma rather than a Bachelors. Other colleges in Ontario have this program aswell 
Here is the link if you want more information 
Or google search St Clair college Chemical Labratory Technology
Any advice to whether this is a good and credible program would be appreciated ?

Is it worth it?
I'm in grade 11, and I'm interested in post-secondary programs at Ryerson (Business Tech Management & Business Management), and Business administration at University of Windsor. All of these programs only require one mathematics prerequisite (either Data Management, Advanced Functions or Calculus and Vectors). Here's the thing, in grade 9 I did horrible in academic and was forced to take applied grade 10, I did well enough, to be eligible for mixed 11 (which i'm currently in). With a mixed math course, I can easily take Grade 12 data management, but before I can take grade 12 AF, I need to take grade 11 functions (which i'll have to do first semester of grade 12). I'm just wondering with just taking Data Management put me at a disadvantage since it's not a rigorous course compared to AF or Calculus. Then taking functions then advanced functions a better choice since it's a safety bet or am I just fine with just DM and taking Functions then AF just a waste time and a risk. (it'll most likely lower my average). 
P.s. I have an extensive resume, which includes winning many business awards and competitions, if it matters.

I have a 94 average and I'm reading about kids with a 97 average who haven't gotten in?????? Is there any certain mark that will guarantee acceptance???? IM SOOOOOO STRESSED PLEASE HELP
I plan to go into Social Work.  I have gotten into McMasters Social Sciences program, University of Windsor’s Social Work program and Wilfred Laurier Social Work program.  I recently decided that I want to take a year off in order to make money for school as it would be difficult for my family. I have already emailed those three schools and they said that they grantdeferences very rarely for outstanding circumstances.I am aware that OSAP is an option but I feel that if I deferred I could avoid most student loans.  I had a 92% average for first semester so if I took a year off I should be able to get into any Social Science program as the average is typically 75-80%.  Would it be a good idea to take a year off? I’m not 100% sure about going into Social Work so the tear off could be a chance for me to pick a field I would be committed to as well as make money to pay for school.

How does changing majors work? Please help!
I'm in grade 12, I applied to psychology and got accepted to University of Windsor. I really want to go into human kinetics/kinesiology but I'm curious, how do I switch programs/majors. Will they check if I got the certain requirements for the program. The requirements for human kinetics/kinesiology is a 78% average 70% in English and 70% in biology in high school applying to the program but what about when you are already in university. Do I have to get a 70% in English and biology to be able to switch? Because I did get a high mark in English but a poor mark in biology. Please help! What should I do?

Arts degrees, are they worthless?
Hi! I have heard so many different sides to this topic that I decided to make a forum on it. When posting on this forum please consider that arts degrees can refer to a Bachelors of Arts in English while also can refer to something along the lines of a Bachelors of Arts in Computer Science, there is much variation within the BA degree. Thanks and debate away!

How is the forensic science program at University of Windsor?
So I've taken a serious interest in forensic science during my senior year of high school and applied to the forensic science program - focussing on forensic biology at Windsor. Is the program well established in terms of how it teaches + what can I expect going into my first year in terms of difficulty.

Which University Has The Best Business Porgram
The universities I have applied for are McMaster, Carleton, Universoty of Ottawa, Brock (bba), university of Windsor, and Guelph, all for their business programs. If I get into Degroote I will definelty go there but I'm worried I might be off by a percent or two. I'm pretty confident I'll get into the other programs so I was wondering which one is best. My aunt was telling me that if I can't get into McMaster Carleton might be the best option especially if I want to pursue finance which I'm planning on doing.

Taking lighter course Load in university?
Hey guys I am currently a university student and was thinking about having a lighter course load next semester by spreading out my course between the winter and spring terms. I was planning on taking 4 courses in winter term and then 1 course in the spring. The reason I am doing this is because my current health condition is not so well and I don't think I will be able to handle a full course load. Will this impact my osap funding or chances of getting accepted to post graduate university? 

PS I am currently a Life science student in first year 

Thank you in advance
