High School Class of 2018 Offers of Admission
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.

In your post, please include the following:
- Program and post-secondary institution
- Date of application
- Date of offer
- Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications)
- Province you're applying from
- Any other information you'd like to add

Good luck everyone!!

Waterloo AFM Chances
Hey everyone. 
89% average as of right now, hoping to get to 92+ by midterm. 

I retook two courses in night school and gave legitimate reasons to why I did in my AIF. 
Does this hurt my chances significantly of getting admitted?

Also, for the video interview, the time ended as I was saying literally saying my last two words of my conclusion. Will that make a big difference as well?

Thanks everyone for the help!

NOTE: I also got an email saying they've reviewed my application but they'll consider me for the round coming up in May.

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

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

Am i f****d?
The more i think about university the more i get worry about my future. Here is my dilemma. In grade 10 my math teacher forced me to take math applied because he didn't think academic was the right class for me. At the time, i didn't know or care about the difference or the impact it can have on your life. Now i find that i can't apply to any programs that require math (adv func, calculus etc). This really closed a lot of doors because now i can only apply to arts programs which are useless most of the time. I applied to mostly poli science as that's the only path i see myself taking without math. The problem is that i know i will dislike poli science as i am more interested in business and i know i'm not the the poli sci type of guy. What do you guys think i should do.

1st Year Ryerson Engineering AMA Thread!
Well, the title says it all
To all the grade 12s, I was in the same boat as you last year, wondering about admissions, career and so on. But I am finally onto my next stage of life, studying engineering. Woohoo (have midterms soon, so mixed emotions! :/ )
Anyways, If you guys have any questions related to admissions, student life, commuting, programs, and so on, feel free to post them below. I'll try to answer as fast as I can.

Help choosing which uni to go to?
My top choice was McMaster and I got into Mac which is where I was planning on going, though my mom REALLY wants me to stay here. Her top reason is money, though I can come up with the money myself. I got into Ry and York as well and I'm still waiting on U of T. If I don't get into U of T, that leaves me w 3 options. I'm against staying here but it looks like I'm going to have to settle between Ry or York, if somehow I can't convince her. Please help? What should I do?

Choosing the Right University?
How do you pick which University to go to? I got accepted to all programs I applied for so it is not possible to rule out one that way. I am just looking for advice on how to choose. Or how others like me are making their decisions?

Student life at schulich
Hey everyone. I’m planning on attending the Schulich School of Business next year but I have some questions that I was hoping I could resolve to ensure that I make the right decision. I live in North York, about an hour from York, so I would have to commute everyday. I understand that by attending Schulich I wouldn’t be getting the traditional university experience, but would this put me at a disadvantage from making friends and attending events? I am a social person who is also hard working, so I really want to make the next four years of my university life memorable. Is there a very competitive atmosphere at Schulich or is everyone friendly? Can I enjoy myself while still commuting? Thanks

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)

Travelling to York University
I'm planning on buying a boosted board to travel to York University, it is about a 45-minute ride from my house to the university. Is it worth it, and I know that the area around York is prone to criminal activity, so do you think I might get robbed. Thanks

Any opinions on a school for psych?!?!?
I’ve been accepted to my top three schools all for psych— UTSC Co-op psych, ryerson honours and york honours BA. I’m currently favouring ryerson but I’m really not sure which school is the best. Does anyone have an opinion  because I’m having a difficult time making a decision.
