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.

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?

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 (:

So my grade 12 semester 1 marks were just submitted to OUAC, I have a 91% average. Do you think that’ll be good enough to be accepted to queens arts (health studies intended major) and western health sci? My grade 11 average was less than favourable (74%) so I’m not sure...are they still looking at grade 11 marks now that they have grade 12? Do you think I’ll have to wait until they get grade 12 semester 2 midterm marks?

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.

Western Ivey AEO Admission Grades
Hey everyone! I'm a Grade 12 Ontario student who has applied to the advanced entry opportunity (AEO) at Western University. I have a few questions regarding the application process that has been bothering me to no end. Ivey starts giving out AEO offers to 101 applicants in March, before our second semester midterm marks come out (in late-April). 
They say the admission average will be calculated using one's top 6 grade 12 U/M marks, of which only 4 will be available by the time the first round of offers are given out. Firstly, of all the Ontario applicants who are accepted eventually, roughly what % are accepted before April midterm marks come out? Secondly, without second semester's marks, what does Ivey use to calculate our average?
University's Getting Semester 1 Marks
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?

Grade 11 student looking for EC advice
I am currently a grade 11 student and I just finished my first semester. I averaged around 90% and now I think it's a good time to start refining my EC's or other areas in my academic life. I am looking to apply to Queens, York, Laurier, McMaster, and maybe Ryerson. I am interested in commerce/business programs at each university. Currently, I have some standard EC's.

I write for the school newspaper, I am a lifeguard, and volunteer at the local food bank. But I always hear about QComm students (and other students from accredited business programs) being accepted with amazing EC's and I was wondering if there was any advice anyone could give me. Any EC recommendations I can start or pick up now since I still have about a year before I apply. Any good habits/tips would be appreciated as well. Areas to focus on would be appreciated as well.
Hey I just finished my first term at Laurier and I’m in the Double Degree BBA and Financial Math program. I found this site super useful to me last year so I’d like to give back by answering the incoming students’ questions! Feel free to ask away! I will try to reply ASAP ! Good luck on your applications!!

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)

Laurier Health Sci
Hey I was thinking about applying to Laurier Health Sci. I am just worried because Laurier is known as a business school... will that effect my education at all? (ex. no funding for Health Sci department, postgrad programs won't except me because of business reputation). Also if anyone has taken Health Sci at Laurier can you share your experience????!!!!!!!!
