yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!

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.
My status for my UofT application says "pending review" , does anyone know when this will change? Also the same for my Uottawa application it says "under evaluation", anyone know when that might change?
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.
I currently have a mid 80's average. I have a 88 in English, 90 in Physics, 90 in Biology but I have a 64 in Advanced Functions. I'm in Grade 12 and I was looking at UW and Ottawa for Life Science and Biomedical Science respectively. Both require the Advanced Functions course as a requirement and both require the mark to be above 70%. In second semester I am confident that I can get all 90's to boost my my average, but is it still possible for me to get into those programs? (P.S for both programs, the overall average must be low 80's).
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 (:
Hello! I have gotten into Health Sci at both Carleton and uOttawa and now I just have to make a decision... I have seen both schools and I like them equally! I love Carleton’s brand-new Health Sci building and their tunnels, but I love uOttawa’s location and campus (with the affiliated hospital!). I would love to hear your opinions on the HEALTH SCIENCE PROGRAM at both of these schools and which one you would pick if you were in my position. Thank you so much!
I just been accepted into University of Ottawa for computer science and I’m currently in my first year of Algonquin College. It says I must maintain an average of 78%. The description says “You must maintain a minimum final admission average of 78%”. Does this mean that I have the have atleast a 78% average in the winter semester? I got a 88% average during the fall semester. Is this asking for a 78% during this semester or does it include my fall semester? I emailed them today but still waiting for a response.
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.

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.
are scholarship offers based on your grade 11 average or grade 12? if it’s different depending on the programs or universities, does anyone know how they do it specifically at uottawa or queens? tried looking at their websites but nothing came up?
I didn't do well in grade 12 english and got a 66. I want to apply for computer science and they require a minimum average of 70% in MCV4U and MHF4U, here are my marks so far:
FSF4U (gr 12 french): 65%
SPH4U (physics): 75%
ICS4U (comp sci): 92%
My average for all my courses is 79%, and my average for my 3 prerequisites (advanced func, calculus and english) is 81%.
I meet the requirments, but I've been told that they wont accept any marks below 70% (ive got 60s in french and english), so what are my chances of getting accepted to uottawa comp sci?
As semester 1 comes to an end, I'm just wondering when exactly universities will receive our final semester 1 marks for grade 12... my last exam was Friday and I know all of my final marks now, so I'm just anxiously awaiting for the schools to get them and for them to start sending out offers of admission based on them. So, does anyone know when exactly the universities will have this information/ act on it?
I have noticed that there have been many threads like this ran for nursing, business, and engineering. As I am hoping to enter health science, I thought it would be beneficial for myself and those who are like-minded to share a few things with one another:
School/programs you plan on applying to:
Grade 11 average:
What you plan on doing with your degree in this field:
Grade 11 average:
Challenge & Change
What you plan on doing with your degree in this field:
I hope to be a naturopath or chiropractor.
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.
Hi, I am interested in Carleton's entrepreneurship program but I also like the sciences therefore, I would minor in biology. Uottawa doesn't offer a minor with the honours marketing program, so I would major in bio and take the entrepreneurship minor. Basically its just flipped. The social life also plays an important part with my decisions. Im looking for advice.
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)
Hi! I am a grade 12 student interested in studying Health Sciences at a university in Ontario. I want to get a high average while receiving a good education. I am interested in medical school in the future, so I would also like to choose a school/program that will give me a good chance at getting into medical school after my undergrad. I have applied to Health Sciences at Carleton (in the biomedical concentration), uOttawa, Laurier, and Queen’s. I have gotten early acceptance into Carleton, uOttawa, and Laurier (which are my top three) and now I am having difficultly choosing. Could someone please share their experiences studying Health Science at these schools? Also if you have any recommendations (e.g. about program choice, additional universities to consider, etc.) please comment! Thank you!
