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.

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

Early Acceptances!
Hi everyone! I was just wondering how early Ontario universities give out acceptances for any life/health sci programs, as well as nursing programs? I was wondering if they gave out acceptances because first semester marks are final? Just because I have siblings who applied 5-6 years back and they were able to get acceptances a month after applying. Do they still do that? oR do they not do that anymore because it's too competitive?

Data Management in Night School??
Hi! I'm in grade 12 and next semester I have calculus, biology, world issues, and a spare. I was thinking of taking data management because I've been told that in nursing programs, we are required to take a statistics course (please let me know if this is true or not), but there is no data management class in my school next semester, so I was thinking of taking it in night school. Would this be a wise choice, or would the workload of having two math subjects in one semester be too much? 
Some additional info: I'm taking advanced functions, chemistry, religion, and English(online) right now. 
Thanks in advance!

Is University of Windsor a good school for computer science?
I am going to apply to university this year and I am considering University of Windsor as an option for computer science. I want to save money instead of going to big name schools such as University of Waterloo or Toronto, so it is worth the cost to go there instead?

Early Admissions Application
I'm currently a Ontario student in grade 12 and I'm really confused about early admissions. My grade 11 average was a 86% for 8 courses but my top six is 90%. However my top six don't include two of my pre recs for engineering. My guidance counsellor even told me those marks were too low for early admission but I've seen people already get accepted this early with about the same averages. Are my marks too low? Especially cause i want to get into engineering or architecture. And when applying for early admissions do they take your six courses and do they have to be your pre recs or can they just be your top six?

Should I take CGW4U instead of SPH4U??
I'm planning on applying to nursing soon and I have physics next semester. I took it in grade 11 and I really didn't like it. If I continue with it next semester, I'd have the same teacher as the previous year. But my only concern is that do I really need it for nursing? 
That's where cgw4u comes in. I've read about the course and it seems interesting to me, and I already have a friend who is taking that same course next semester. If this is any help, here's my schedule layout for both semesters:
Semester 1:
P1-advanced functions 
(I'm taking English online)
Semester 2:
P1-calculus & vectors 
I've had so many people tell me that if I'm going into a science-based program, then I should take all three. I've checked all the university requirements and none of them have said that I need physics. It just says English, bio, grade 11 university math (or any grade 12 equivalent), chemistry, and two other U/M courses. Should I take physics next semester, or just take world issues? I understand that they're both two completely different topics, but I really don't know what else I can do. I've already searched up on whether I need physics or not, and I've seen mixed answers.
Any input would be appreciated!

Undergrad Arts at University Of Toronto
I want to study the arts (English, history, social sciences, etc) for my undergrad. My goal is law school.  A lot of people discourage me for UofT for undergrad since it is apparently hard to maintain a high GPA for law school. I'm a 90+ student. 
Is going to UofT for my undergrad worth it? 
Or should I just go somewhere like York? 
Thank you!

Business (Accounting)
I am currently in grade 12, I am thinking about going into business (accounting). I know some universities that offer accounting programs are Waterloo, York, Brock, UofOttawa, Guelph, Windsor. I would greatly appreciate if those who have gone into a business program (preferably accounting) talk about their experiences at these schools and with averages and extra curriculars you got in with (if you remember). Thank you.

University of Windsor Outstanding Scholars
Hello! I'm in Grade 12 and am considering attending University of Windsor for my undergraduate studies. Recently, I found out about a program at the University of Windsor known as Outstanding Scholars. I have looked it up, and the university website does say that I need a reference letter and a short application explaining why I qualify for the program. For those who have been admitted to the program, what do you think about it and what was your average for admission into the program? Thanks!

I am currently a grade 12 student. I applied to the BScN Program at McMaster, Western, UOttawa(main site), Nipissing, Trent, Windsor and Brock. My marks are as follows:

Math - 85 (midterm)
English - 85 (midterm)
Biology - 75 (midterm)
Chemistry - 80 (midterm)
French - 96 
ComTech - 83 
Overall average - 84

These are my top 6 marks, including my prerequisites. What are my chances of getting in? Also, if I have received an alternative offer from a school before midterms, does that mean I am not considered for my first choice? 

I was hoping for a 85-88% average this year but due to some family issues was not able to achieve that. It would completely shatter me if I did not get into Nursing anywhere by being just 1% away from an 85%, which is what Nursing usually asks for.

Transfer AFTER second year
I am entering my second year this fall in Biology. I currently go to a smaller university far from home and this summer has been very tough on my family financially. It would be better for me if I went to uni in Toronto/Durham region to save money. I was wondering if anyone has their own experiences or heard from friends about how it is like to transfer after second year. Also, I know most schools accept transfers only for the fall term, but I want to transfer as soon as possible so are there any schools which offer admission for the winter or spring/summer semesters? I will need further school after my bio  BSc, so for my undergrad years I want to save money. Also, am I making the wrong choice to transfer after second year? or should I just stay and finish up the degree there? Anyone with opinions on how its like transferring from a smaller uni to a larger one?
*I will be transferring into third year
*my grade are pretty decent so far-I only know the first year grades

HEY, just looking into some life sci/health sci programs for next year (I will be doing grad school too) and was wondering how the University of Waterloo is in their sci programs? I know some people who go for their arts/bus but not for sci. Is it a nice school for a science undergrad if I want to pursue grad school? I heard a lot about their coop and engineering but based on my grade 11 marks, I don't know if I will qualify for co-op. Just want any thoughts on the waterloo science programs/faculty and reasons why I should keep waterloo as my first choice *other than Co-op*
*edit-I will be living in rez

Does UWaterloo offer good connections in sciences?
