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.

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?
6) Any questions you have about nursing! We're all here to help.

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

Laurier BBA vs Ryerson Commerce?
I got accepted to both. Which would be a better choice and why? Pros/cons for each? And is the gap between Laurier BBA and QComm/Ivey significant?

What should I do? Western BMOS??
I got accepted into the BMOS at UWO (Not Ivey AEO) and since I have enough credits, I am able to be admitted straight into 2nd year of the program.
Should I do it??

I also have been accepted to these schools:
Laurier BBA
Ryerson Management
McMasters Business 1
and my grades should allow me to get into Queen's Commerce and UTSC Management Co-op.

My eventual goal is to get an MBA (I'm not too sure which area of business I want to work in yet). What do you think I should do?

1. School/Program(s) Applied to  
2. Date Applied  
3. Grade 11/12 average (which ever was used in consideration for your offer)

Chances of me getting into university
I applied to 5 programs. They are the following as stated

1. Kinesiology at university of toronto 
2. Health Studies at university of waterloo
3. Human kinetics at university of ottawa 
4. Concurrent education with program interest in kinesiology and health sciences 
5. Biology at ryerson 

I just got my report card for my 1st semester final marks and I had the following 

1. 96 in kinesiology 
2. 92 in world issues 
3. 76 in advanced functions 
4. 84 in English 

I have an overall of 87% and I was wondering if I would be able to get a conditional offer for any of my programs this month in February ? My 2nd  semester consists of me having families in Canada a 4M course, spare, chemistry 4U and Biology 4U.

Any advice or feedback would be great, thanks

Does anyone know when first semester marks go to universities. Also, do universities use your first semester final marks when making offers in February?

Best Pre-Med Options
I understand that there is no perfect pre-med in Canada. However, I am hoping to get into medical school after my undergrad (yes, I am aware that I might not want to do this after my undergrad or might not have the marks to do this). I know that everyone says to do a degree that won’t be useless if I don’t get into med school but I don’t care about that I just want to do a science degree. I have heard that McMaster Health Science is one of the best options. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE LIST THE BEST UNDERGRADS WITH SCHOOLS FOR INDIVIDUALS PLANNING ON GOING TO MEDICAL SCHOOL? If you could list like 10 that would be awesome! Thanks (:

Architecture at Ryerson/ UofT FALL 2019
So all of those who have applied, know that you need to attend an evaluation session for RU and submit the Daniels One Idea for UofT.
Through searching I found that there are no threads for the programs this year so since I'm getting so uneasy I thought I should open one myself.

So a few questions...
1. Are you done your portfolio and would you mind sharing it? I would share if you would.
2. What are/is your average, has anyone gotten into UofT yet? I haven't heard anything yet, my average is 82% and I'm internally dying because of it.
3. When is your evaluation session for RU? Mine is on the 9th 3.00-6.00

Feel free to discuss any other architecture programs and how it's going. And please leave a comment and ease my anxiety and yours...hehe.

Really anxious about getting accepted!!! Ryerson - Biology 2019
Hi I just finished my first semester for grade 12, ending up with a 68 in advanced functions. I have completed biology and chemistry too and overall average for these 3 is 75. I have four subjects in my second semester. I am hopeful to bring my average up to atleast an 80. I am really interested in getting into Ryerson for the Biology program. Do I stand a chance?

Half of the time when I go into yconic or click on a tab, I get service 503 error. Very inconvenient and so I cannot access things on here a lot of the time. Anyone else get this issue?

When do you think I will receive acceptances?
I've applied to offer 10 programs at this point due to my indecisiveness and still learning where I want to be, I know due to me having so many schools some schools will deny me which is what I have heard.


Ryerson - Business Management
Ryerson - Political Science
Ryerson - Public Administration
UofT - Arts
Laurier - Arts
Queens - Arts
Mcmaster - Arts
Western - Arts
UOttawa - Arts
UOIT - Commerce
York- Sociology 
York- Law and Society
Waterloo - Arts

I know! A lot, but I didn't want to regret not applying somewhere as everyday I am changing my mind. In Grade 11 I didn't do so good sadly I had a 68% average, my Semester 1 Finals are a 86%. I am hoping my marks for Semester 2 can get me to 89-92%. When do you think I will most likely receive acceptances? I know my grade 11 marks may slow this process down.
Ryerson BSW Offers of admission 2019
Hi,  has anyone received an offer of admission from Ryerson BSW program yet? If you did what was your overall average. I already received an offer  of admissions from  child and youth BA, however that was my back up plan. My average is a solid 91. I’m not sure if that is good enough because I hear the program is highly competitive. Should I be worried?

Studying abroad
This is probably a really stupid question but if you do a semester abroad do you pay your school's tuition or the school you're studying at while abroad's tuition (including international student fees)?

Neill Wycik Co-op
I was wondering if anyone has ever lived in Neill Wycik on gerrard street. Does the studio room have a private bathroom or is it just bigger (the website isn't clear)? Anything else about what it's like living there would be helpful as well.

So I'm trying to transfer from uoft to ryerson. I'm on OUAC trying to send my transcript. My high school sent my transcript within a day. However, uoft hasn't sent anything at all. I'm wondering if it will only be sent when I review and submit?

OUAC 105 D Application
Hi I'm applying through the 105 D application due to the fact that I'm not in high school anymore. In my application under the 'Academic Background" tab i put down various nightschools and higshcool attended. But my questions is, when it asks "highest year level achieved" what do i put down? i been to that highschool all 4 years and passed through all my nightschools with high marks, but the night schools are only 1 semester long each. so what do i put down in highest year level achieved in each?
Neill Wycik Toronto
I'm thinking about moving into the Neill Wycik hostile on Gerrard Street for next year and was wondering if anyone could tell me a bit about it, especially the following?
1) Is it a reasonably safe area? - I can handle it being a "don't go out a night" sort of neighborhood, but is it a place that has a lot of break-ins or mid-day crimes?
2) this is probably a stupid question but does the studio room have a private or shared bathroom?
3) can I book the room for 8 months straight or do I have to renew it every once in a while?
