Rotman or AFM?
I got accepted into both programs, but debating which one is better for finance? I really like coop at Waterloo, but Rotman is sooo prestigious. Any suggestions?
Rotman vs. Degroote ????????
Alright so...

I am currently an Arts and Science student at U of T and want to transfer into Rotman commerce. I've talked to an admissions officer there that said most of the artsci transfer students they admitted had at least a 3.0 gpa, which is certainly within my abilities.

However, I also know that Rotman is quite schizophrenic in their admissions process!

I've also applied to Degroote and will most likely get in, as I exceed there minimum admission requirements. I definately feel it would be "safer" to go there. But I love the Rotman name and Big4 oppotunities! :(

Are there any arts sci transfer students on here that could help me out on this? would love to know your gpa when you got accepted!

Schulich Second Round!
Anyone expecting a second round offer with midterm marks? What are your averages like?
Doing Private school courses over the summer, Will it help??
Hi, I am doing 2 private school courses over the summer. I am currently a grade 11 student.

I will have 3 of my top 6 M/U courses completed before grade 12 starts and at first sem. final I will have 6 M/U completed.

Will this help me for early acceptance?

Thoughts on Private School? I know a lot of people who have done it and are excelling in top business programs such as Queens, Ivey, Mcgill. In addition I emailed all the uni's I am interested within and they said its absolutely fine.
Nursing Hopefuls 2015!
Hey everyone!

I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.

1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:

1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year

So common guys, reveal yourselves! ;)
Well I'm Screwed.. Do I have a shot?
Okay I'm in a crisis right now :(
I'm waitlisted to GB and the ryerson mainsite and I got rejected from York today. I only applied to 3 programs because I was pretty damn sure I would get into a nursing program with an 88 average, but that didn't happen and I screwed myself over. I don't mind taking the year off the boost my average to hopefully a 92-93. Since I got rejected from York today I decided to delete that from OUAC and apply to business management. The program was open on OUAC and they take a 1185 students each year.. what do you think my chances are since I applied so late? (Literally applied a couple of hours ago)
Computer Science co-op UTSC??
Hi! Does anyone know the average cut off rates for the computer science (co-op) program at UTSC? Does an average of 86 give me a good chance or no? Oh and one more thing. I've yet to receive my first term midterm marks, but I know I did horribly in Chemistry (70 on the dot or maybe even lower). But I'm not considering my Chem OR Physics mark to be in my top 6. In my top 6, I have adv functions, calculus, english, international business, and I'm planning on taking 2 easy courses next year, to boost up my average. So to sum it up, this semester, I only have advance functions and english (since I'm not counting Chemistry) as one of my top 6.. Will they send my Chemistry mark to UTSC as well? I'm panicking, because it might impact my acceptance.. :/
Current UBC student - ask me anything
I'm a second year UBC student. I took first year sciences, lived in rez, and have since transferred into Engineering. I'm also an Orientations Leader and a volunteer for Destination UBC.

I can answer questions about about rez life, science, how I got into UBC, engineering or transferring. This is my second forum post, my old one was getting huge and a bit unwieldy. 
Business: Current Student at Schulich - Uni Admissions (Ask Questions!)
Hi everyone!

So I this is a pretty stressful time for a lot of you, who are applying to business schools across Ontario, and just wanted to give back as this site helped me while I was choosing which school to go to. I currently go to Schulich, so feel free to ask questions about the student life, admission grades, extracurriculars, possible chances, and things like that! Good luck :)
Schulich Rejection Posts!
Who else ended up getting rejected?! Lets squad up people!
BMath/BBA Double Degree student - Ask anything
Just like the topic says.

I am a BMath/BBA double degree student currently in my 4th year.

If you have any questions at all about admissions, co-op, courses, competition, work load, etc. just let me know either here or in a PM and I'll do my best to answer them.

I can also answer things about Laurier's BBA program or UW's Math programs.

York University/Seneca/Georgian Nursing ASK ME?
I am pretty sure there are not that many students here thinking/discussing about York-Seneca-Georgian's nursing program. But for the few lost souls out there who have a question, feel free to ask me :)

I have been answering most questions via Facebook as admin of the collaborative nursing group.
But if you would like to personally ask me anything about it, feel free to either post or message me here or find me on Facebook (Rhey De Castro). Please mention that you saw this post on StudentAwards.

Otherwise enjoy your Summer! Trust me nursing is one long road! :cyclops:
2nd year at QC, AMA
Just finished my 2nd year at Queen's Commerce, feel free to ask me anything!
Laurier BBA/BSc 3rd Year Student, Ask Away!
Hello all,

I am just ending my fourth year at WLU in the BBA/BSc Computing Co-op program. If you have any questions (even regarding standard BBA or BBA/BA) please feel free to ask away and I will try to get a quick response to any of your questions! Please refrain from asking questions about bird courses or for information that is CLEARLY better answered by someone at the Registrar's Office.

**This is a continuation of my thread from last year so if you search through it a lot of your questions may already be answered.**

Quick about me:
-Worked as an Instructional Assistant for CP104/114
-Lived in Waterloo College Hall for first year residence
-In co-op, 3 terms under my belt (Government and 2 in S&T, looking do my final in S&T again)
-No prior computer science experience before this program
-Played intramural ice hockey and ball hockey

Why I chose Laurier:
-Much cheaper compared to schools that offer similar programs (ex. Queen's, Ivey)
-Co-op program
-Small community feel of the campus, always bump into someone you know
-Great business school, and new building on its way
-Good distance from home while not being too far away

Hope to see you soon future Goldenhawks!

UBC Pharmacy - Ask me!
HeelllooOoOOooOooo SA,

It's been a while since I've been on here! A lot of people from 2010-2011 might remember me, hehe. :)

Well, I just recently started my pharmacy degree at UBC and would be happy to answer any questions!

I also completed two years of undergraduate studies in UBC Science (Major in Biology), so if you have any questions about that - ask away too! :)

I'd prefer you not send me any personal messages as I get too many of those with the same questions. If you have a question, chances are, so will 29857295 other people.
Waitlisted Nursing Students
Hey, if you have been waitlisted for nursing programs post below
Mention what school, what average you have and when.
Hopefully this will help people know what the chances of them are getting in are and as well as will know which schools have an active moving waitlist.
Good luck to all :)
Will I get into QC?
I've received a letter of rejection from QC about a week ago, but realized that they likely made an error because my average was 91.8%, my EC's were on point and my essay responses were written in good English. I contacted admissions on the day of and explained to them that they likely made some sort of an error and that I'm not mad at them for doing so(most people mistakes so it's understandable).

Since, for some odd reason, several people working for QC's admissions unit did not seem to understand what my problem was, I kept on calling them repeatedly hoping to reach someone competent (so many idiots these days aha). The lady who I ended up speaking to at the end said that she understands my problem, and that I'm truly "one really special snowflake".

I know that standing out and demonstrating brilliant character is something that Queen's Commerce really cares about. Now that they realized how special I am (and better than like 99.99% of the people they accepted), do you think they will modify their decision?

Thanks guys,

- John Smith
McGill admission cutoff went up!!
As I've been told, apparently the McGill admission avg for desautels this year is 95%... Last year it was a 93.7%. This is freaking me out bcz I'm still pending with a 94.6% avg..

To the people that got accepted already, do you mind sharing what your avg was so I can get an idea? I'm really worried :(
Just finished first year @ DeGroote School of Business. Ask me anything!
I'm usually really busy due to school, but I will try and answer any DeGroote/Business/Application/Social/McMaster related questions based on my experience! I apologize in advance if I'm late or don't get to your question. Everything posted here are from my own personal experiences and it's my own opinion. I personally feel that not a lot of DeGroote students uses this forum, and oftentimes we are being misrepresented. Therefore, I created this thread to clear things up and to provide advices from the actual experiences that I've been through. I'm not an official McMaster representative & do not affiliate with the McMaster admissions in anyway.
