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.

Does university ONLY look at your top 6 marks?
So this semester I have four courses, which are physics, religion, business and english. I expect to get over a 90% in all these course except for physics. At midterms I had a 90 in physics, but that quickly dropped to a low 80. However, physics is not a course I need for any of my university applications and next semester I have  3 University Level courses and 1 Mixed Level course. Suppose all my other courses are above a 90 and for physics I end with with a 70. Would this mark at all affect my university acceptance (supposing physics is NOT included in top 6)?
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?
I need help with my application!!!
I am applying to universities in Ontario as a grade 12 high school student. I had applied last year but did not meet the prerequisites then.The OUAC application asks if I have applied before, so should I say or will it affect my application?

OUAC 105 D Acceptances 2018
Hi, I'm writing to ask if anyone had been accepted for upcoming September year? Also what was your program and average for getting in if you don't mind me asking.
OUAC 105 D Application
Hi, I am applying to university using the OUAC 105D application and am almost done my application. The part in which it asks for 'Academic Background' it says if my school is eligible for submitting a transcript electronically, I can make a request for that. I have a few questions regarding this.

My first question is however, how long will it take for the OUAC to receive my transcript electronically? Also just to make sure, will that same electronic transcript be used for my university application to my university program choices?

My other question is regarding which school I choose to request my transcript from. I graduated high school from L'Amoreaux Collegiate Institute in 2017. I had attended night school courses at Albert Campbell Collegiate Institute & Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute to upgrade some courses right after graduating. The most recent school I attended was in 2018 this year and I was enrolled in a day school program at Scarborough Center for Alternative Studies. My question is which school do i request my transcript from?

What you plan on doing with your degree in this field:

For myself- 

Expected average: 90%
Grade 11 average: 85%
Course load:  
1st semester-
Social justice

2nd semester-
Challenge & Change

What you plan on doing with your degree in this field: I hope to be a naturopath or chiropractor.

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.

Ryerson Business Management?
Hey guys!

So, recently I've been having a dilemma. In grade 11 Functions I got an 80%. This year in Advanced Functions, I have the same teacher, but I'm getting a 60% (or possibly lower now). Due to this, I decided that maybe I shouldn't pursue business and instead tried to find something that peaked my interest. When I researched, I decided on Criminology. However, now I'm really scared because I don't think a BA is employable, whereas a BComm would look much better on a resume. I've gotten accepted into every university I've applied to thus far, and want to try my luck at Ryerson Business Management (only business program I now have the qualifications for), but the only thing stopping me is my Advanced Functions mark and most likely not being able to reach the requirement of a 70% average in that class. I completed ENG4U in summer school and got a 90% and all of my other courses this semester are mid-high 90's mark wise, so my average itself is around an 87, but math is really dragging me down. But, I don't really want to retake Advanced Functions because I have a lot going on next semester too, and I find it really annoying that I should have to retake something I already put myself through. I know retaking it is the obvious answer, or taking data instead, but I just feel really discouraged and scared. I guess I'm on here hoping to get advice or possibly some reassurance. I just want an employable degree.

ryerson biomed a hard program?
Hi, I am planning on going to university next year with hopes to get into medical school 4 years later. I want to get into a program which is relatively easy so I can have a high GPA, yet also prepare me for the MCAT and medical school. I was looking into ryersons biomedical program but I was wondering if it would be hard to achieve a high GPA.

Can I get declined right now?
I currently have a 68 in functions and I am going to re take it in private school next semester. I am just wondering if a university like Ryerson would look at the 68 right now and decline me, would I have to contact them and tell them that I am retaking the course?

Applying to Nursing after a BSc
Is anyone else applying to nursing programs after finishing a different undergraduate degree? I finished my BSc at Western this June, and I'm applying to nursing programs for Fall 2019. I'm a bit concerned because my cGPA is really low (the last two years were much better - but still not sure its good enough for nursing)... I finished with a cGPA of 73.8% (2.92) and had a 78% (3.30) for the last two years.

I've applied to a ton of programs due to the low marks - Ryerson/Centennial, Ryerson/George Brown, Trent Compressed, Western/Fanshawe, UOttawa, Humber 2nd Entry, MoMac, CoMac, Laurentian/St.Lawrence.

Has anyone else applied to these programs after doing a university degree? Or know of people getting in out of uni with a lower average? 

My next step would be applying to a college Pre-Health program, but hoping this won't be necessary so I can avoid extra debt/an extra year of school.

Ryerson Architectural Science Portfolio
I'm a Grade 12 student interested in Ryerson's Architectural Science program. I have a couple questions about the portfolio:

1) what are they looking for when evaluating the portfolio?
2) do they prefer a variety of works? ex: is it alright if the majority of my portfolio is photography or a different medium?
3) are school art assignments acceptable?
