High School Class of 2019 Offers of Admission
University applications are open!  I thought we could start a discussion so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied and their averages.

I found the 2018 discussion to be very helpful and informative, in that discussion they included the following information;

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.

Nursing Hopefuls for 2019 :)
Hi prospective nursing students! Let's use this thread as a space to share information, questions, concerns, advice, and more with one another as the year progresses.

To get the discussion rolling, start off with your:
• programs of interest (both nursing and non-nursing);
• expected average; and
• career goals!

I'm thinking of applying to McMaster for nursing and health sciences as well as Western for nursing with a 95-96%. I'd like to be a nurse practitioner in the future, but do not have a particular speciality in mind yet.

Hey! If you're applying to Queen's University for their Health Sciences on-campus degree, can you comment:

- your grade 12 avg (atm), based off of what courses 
- what learning path you're interested in taking (if you're interested in taking one at all) 
- your other choices of universities and programs from 1st pick to 3rd (or 4th, 5th ...) 
- your dream job

Heavily relying second semester, GRADE 12? Need Help
Hey everyone, 
So I applied to Queens, Guelph, Ottawa, and Western for Computer Science. I did pretty bad in grade 11 so I am going for early acceptance. This semester I am taking physics, earth and space science, and personal fitness. Next semester I have 5 courses: Calculus (night school), English, Online Challenge and Change, Food and Nutrition, Fitness Leadership. 
1st Semester:
- Earth and Space: 95
- Physics: 60
-Personal Fitness: 93
So the thing is, after second semester mid terms, physics would not be in my top 6, so will universities care about my physics mark? As during 1st round of acceptances, universities will only see my bad physics mark, and my SES mark. If I get 90's (Which I Will) next semester, do I have anything to worry about? In addition, I have not completed my volunteer hours yet, does it matter when I complete them or as long as I complete them by the end of the year? 
Would appreciate any feedback/answers. 
McMaster vs. Queen's engineering
Hey there, 

I was wondering if McMaster or Queen's is better for the undergraduate chemical engineering program? The rankings seem pretty close and both locations are nice. Any input would be much appreciated

ASK ME ANYTHING !! (currently a UBC Sauder student)
Hello everyone!

I can totally understand how stressful it is to apply to universities. That is why I am here to help! 

Last year, I applied to commerce programs at UBC, U of T, SFU, Queens, and Alberta. Feel free to ask me any questions you have about the applications for the above uni; as well as any general questions that you may have. 

If you need tips or help with writing personal essays for uni and stuff, I am also the go to person for that :D 

I hope you all can get into your dream school !

Which business schools do I have a shot at getting into? (Queen's, Ivey, etc)
Grade 12 student. 

Midterm marks:
Economics - 100%
International business - 98%
Advanced functions 99%

Next Semester I have a financial securities course and accounting (hoping for a 95+ in both. Calculus - Don't know if i'll do very well, but it will not be in my top 6 for Ivey aeo, and my mark in this class obviously won't prevent me from meeting the Qcomm 87 cutoff or the laurier bba cutoff. English next semester as well.

I want a closed campus experience without commuters, so I do not plan on applying to Rotman or Schulich. I don't think I would enjoy it there. My top choices are Western (only if i have aeo), Queen's, and Laurier BBA as my backup. 

When do you think Laurier BBA will accept me? Should I even bother with the ABS form?

EC's for Queens and Ivey aeo:

Link crew leader (leader to a group of grade 9s)
Canadian tire employee
Tutor two kids through a charity
Recently started a club with my friends, but I might not write about this since it's so late and I don't have much to show for this. 

I am also concerned that I have no awards other than Honour roll and another for consistently having the highest mark in one of my classes last year? Is this bad?

What would you say my chances are for QC and Ivey? Considering my average will probably drop eventually to say a 96-97 maybe, and I try hard to connect leadership to my EC's?

I am interested in working in, or at least trying out an internship in Finance (IB, private equity, etc). Will this be possible if I go to Laurier?

Queens Commerce
Hi, i am currently in grade 12 and want to go in queens commerce. However, i dont have the full funds to pay for it. I would have to pay over 50k in dept. My question is if it worth going into dept and paying it back later or should i go to a university like McMaster for commerce where i would have no dept. Is there a major difference? Also, would i make a higher salary with a queens degree? THANKS. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
McMaster vs. Queen's vs. Ottawa vs. Guelph vs. Others
Hello, I'm a high school senior living in the GTA. I'm looking to study somewhere in Ontario and I'm interested in studying physics and/or chemistry. As I am still undecided, I'm interested in possibly doing general science in first year. I have visited many universities in the last few months, and I felt the most comfortable at McMaster, Queen's, Ottawa and Guelph. But, I can't seem to decide between them. I have applied to all of these schools (Queen's-Science, McMaster-Chemical and Physical Sciences, Ottawa and Guelph-Physics Co-op). I have already been accepted to Queen's.
Which one has the best program? If anyone in the science programs at one of these school's has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Gr. 12 courses for Psych (BA)?
So I am planning on applying to Psychology (BA) programs for universities next year (My number one school is University of Guelph btw). I am currently in grade 11 and have to soon choose my courses for next year, I am aware that the only courses for this program that are required are English and 5 other U/M courses. I am here to ask what other courses I should take that will help me when I do make it to university for Psych. I am thinking of taking Bio and a math, but I am not sure if I will really need it as it not a requirement. So will taking bio and math increase my chances of getting in? So if anyone could offer me some advice on what to take based off their own experience or what they've heard about Psych courses? That would be great! Thanks! (I posted this question before to but forgot to ask if it improves my chances of getting in if I take the recommended courses too instead of just the required)

How do universities calculate top 6?
I'm applying to Arts at a few different schools so my only required prerequisite is English. This semester I only have 3 classes so will they look at those three, my grade 11 English mark and my next two best grade 11 marks?
