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.

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.

Volunteering in Nursing Program
Hi, I am interested in nursing for 2019 and visited the McMaster fall preview yesterday where I attended an info session on nursing. They said that you are required to complete 32 hours of volunteering where you are given the location where you will complete this volunteering. Just wondering if this is at other nursing programs other than Mac or just at Mac?

Medical School Hopeful (Currently in Grade 12) - What schools & programs should I apply to?
Hello! I'm currently (or will be in about a week) a grade twelve student in Southern Ontario. 
I really want to get into McMaster's bHsc program, but I understand it's nearly impossible to get into. So, I don't want to pin all my hopes on a program that accepts only 200 students.

 So, what other programs should I be looking to apply to that will give me the best opportunity to get into med school? I'm very interested in health & biology sciences, and I've heard that Guelph has some good programs. I've also heard Western has a pretty good Bmsc program, but it seems unnecessarily hard to me, and it's quite far from home.

 Now, I know some of you will say that by choosing easy programs that I'm not trying, but I don't see the point in going for a program that's just unnecessarily hard when I can get better results with an easier program, and higher chances at getting into med school.

Looking forward to hearing your answers! Ideally, I would like to apply to McMaster bHsc and two others.

Also, I've been told by my guidance that because I took summer school for grade eleven physics (new credit, not a make-up or anything), that it will hurt my chances and I should write them about it. She said I should explain how I had to take it, because I was severely ill and in the hospital I missed an entire grade ten semester. I had to take a few grade ten classes in grade eleven, and one summer school class last month, but I'm all up to date now and only taking grade twelve classes. Regardless, is it true that it will hurt my chances?

Best Laptop for Computer Science
I'm looking to buy a new laptop for university since I'll be going into computer science. I prefer a laptop that's under $2000, has around 8GB Ram, 128GB-256GB, is thin and portable, has a good number of USB A ports, and I would like for it to be touchscreen but its not a necessity. Any suggestions? Also, thoughts on Macbook for computer science?

Windsor vs Ryerson Civil Engineering
I'm choosing between these two programs. Windsor has a guaranteed coop but Ryerson's coop is less clear. Which program would make me more employable?

Should I consider switching?
I accepted my offer to York CS. My other options are Windsor CS w/ SE specialization (co-op) or Brock CS (Co-op) as they are still open. I prefer Brock as its closer, $4K entrance scholarship, better co op program and also offers a specialization in SE(3rd year). I would commute to York(3 hours/day), no co-op(internships). In which case Brock would be more convenient being near everything at residence and a proper co op program.

Brock BBA Co-op vs. University of Windsor Commerce Co-op
I was accepted to Windsor Commerce about a month ago, and Brock BBA with Co-op just today. I have a 79% top six average, and am looking to get a finance major. I'm wondering which school I should pick for next year?
Brock, Windsor or York for CS? Plz Help!
York CS  
Brock CS (Co-op)  
Windsor CS with SE specialization (Co-op)  
(Wait listed for Ryerson CS) 
If I get accepted to Ryerson during the summer I will go there. For now, I must decide which school I will go to with the possibility of not receiving a offer from Ryerson. I would commute to York, whereas Brock and Windsor would require residence. However, York has a strike problem, commuting wastes time, and no co op program. They do have internships though, but it's not a co op program like Brock and Windsor. Also I have not visited the campuses making it even harder it terms of my perspective. Which program do you think I should go to?

University of Windsor Mechanical Engineering
Hi all,

I am about to finish my BSc majoring in biology, I want to do a second degree in Engineering and I am applying to University of Windsor. The required minimum average for acceptance is 65% and a minimum of 65% in all maths, physics and chemistry courses. However, my cumulative average for 4 years is 64.66% but my marks for the maths, physics and chemistry courses are 70s and 80s. A friend advised me to go talk to the associate dean - academics of engineering for a special consideration. Any advice? Does anyone think I might have a chance? I don' want to pay $300 for the application with zero chance of getting accepted.

2018 Concurrent Education Acceptances
Has anyone been accepted for a con ed program? If you have been accepted, state the name of the program and the university. Congratulations!

I have been accepted by:
University of Windsor: Concurrent General Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)/Bachelor of Education/Diploma in Early Childhood Education
Brock University: Education - Concurrent BA Child and Youth Studies (Honours)/BEd (Primary/Junior)
Nipissing University: Concurrent Bachelor of Science Honours/Bachelor of Education (BEd) - Primary/Junior

I have also applied to Queens but I have not been accepted yet, I also have not submitted my supplementary application yet.
I already passed and took English in grade 12 and got a 75%, but I wanted to improve my mark so this semester I took it again in night school NOT KNOWING THAT THIS TEACHER IS NOT OKAY. Shes giving lots of people low marks. Basically, its passed the date to drop a course as it may and I am wondering if I can just fail this English? will OUAC take my 75% English mark?
Dumbest University in Canada
Guys, I've found it. What all university/high school students have wondered at least once in their lives (don't deny it); the dumbest/worst school in Canada.
(note: honourable mention goes to Lakehead)

Med school interview after finishing a bachelors of bio and nursing
Hey! So I have a med school interview soon at UofT and I’m a bit nervous. So I didn’t take the traditional route to med school. I took a 4 year undergra d in biological sciences at Uwindsor with thesis ( graduated with honours and all med school pre recs). I then went on to Toronto and did the 2 year accelerated RN program which I’m graduating from right now( also with honours). I got a 517 on my MCAT. I’m worried they’ll ask why I did all this school and took nursing and I’m not sure what to respond.
Any Ryerson BComm/BTM acceptances?
