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 (:

Carleton vs uOttawa
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!

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?

Health Science 2019
University health science applicants of 2019:

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:
Expected average:
Grade 11 average:
Course load:
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.

Carleton vs uottawa ?
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.

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)?
should i choose carleton health sci
hey ! i am thinking about going to carleton for health sci ! i am already accepted and really liked the school ! the new health sci building is amazing ! could anyone who is currently in health sci (preferably at cu) tell me about it ? ! thanks !

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)

Choosing a school
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!

Are my marks good enough for Waterloo, UofT, McMaster??
Are my marks good enough for Waterloo, Queens, UofT, McMaster, Queens?
I'm interested in Computer Science and Software Engineering programs.

ENG4U (English) - 90%
SPH4U (Physics) - 95%
MHF4U (Advanced Functions) - 76% (I know its low, but I am going to try to bring it to an 80)

Next Semester Courses:
MDM4U (Data Management)
MCV4U (Calculus & Vectors)
ICS4U (Computer Science)
SCH4U (Chemistry) - Repeating @ Night School
HHS4U (Families in Canada) - I heard its an easy course, however I might change it to another course.

- App Development Club at my school.
- Volunteer for Mayoral Campaign.
- Web Development Internship.
- Created a few Websites for Businesses
- Part Time Job
- Going to Participate in Waterloo's Euclid & Computing Contests.
- Currently Developing an App.

Also, instead of taking HHS4U should I repeat Advanced Functions?

Can i get into Carleton Sciences with an 85% average or should i just stick to colleges? When are undergraduate applications due for students outside of ontario?

is ryerson a good school?
hello.  i am applying for a number of undergraduate architecture programs and I have to rank them in order of interest (i know i know, the masters are ill that matter but still...).  i know that i'll put waterloo as my top choice (like the rest of the world), but then im left with ryerson, carleton and uoft daniels (laurentian as a backup).  i visited all the schools and i like the two over uoft since the degree is an arts degree, and there is no coop, but then i found out that only the top third of ryerson students get a coop!!  and also theres like only 30 spots in the masters program and its not the most reputable university from what ive heard.  but then again, so is carleton!  anyone care to shed some light on what schools are the best?  also i have high grades so that shouldn't be a concern.  thanks in advance!

How useless is health science?
Science is a subject that I’ve always been really interested in and after taking a course called health care in grade 11 health science seems like something I wanna go into; however, I’ve heard and read over and over again to not go into health sciences as it’s a basically useless degree. Is that actually the case or a slight over exaggeration? Medicine is something I’ve been looking into but I realize that you don’t have to take science/ health science for that, and that’s it’s unbelievably hard to get into and I want to take something that will give me a good backup plan too. Health science is something I want to take because it genuinely interests me, not just so I can maybe be a doctor: the fact that it combines the aspects of science (bio, anatomy) with some social sciences (ethics in healthcare, etc) really seems interesting to me. However I don’t want to go into it if I’m gonna be jobless and in a pile of student debt after four years, but at the same time I don’t want to take a program I will hate. How hard is it to go into a masters degree program? Also, I’ve heard that you can go into and work at health Canada with a health science degree? That’s sounds of interesting, is it true? Also, before anyone mentions this, computer science, business and engineering are subjects that I HATE so I really do not want to go into those. I realize these kind of questions are annoying but I’ve tried doing research and not too much has come up. Any insight would be really helpful and appreciated!!

Carleton Early Admission?
I applied to Carleton's engineering program to various engineering/comp sci programs, and went to check Electronic Info and noticed they now say early conditional offers will be issued in January/February, even though I swear when I applied, the timeline said early offers would be given out in November. Does anyone know if they definitely won't give out early admissions in November/December? Please let me know.

Dating: Long Distance
PLEASE READ! Long distance relationships are not what they are portrayed to be. They are not as hard, emotionally draining, or as impossible as people assume. Right now, I am living 3 hours away from my boyfriend (who plays a varsity sport). We see each other once or twice a month. We are both happy, both with room to live our own lives but always being able to catch up at the end of the night. We still love each other, nobody has been unfaithful, and it is relatively easy. The time we spend together is always quality time, and I do not regret staying with him.If you love someone and think you they could be the person for you, go for it. The worst that could happen is that it doesn't work out and you part ways. It is entirely possible, do not give up just because of what you THINK might happen.

Pros of a long distance relationship...
1. The time you spend together is really exciting and precious
2. You have the freedom to be yourself and make friends on your own terms
3. You always have lots to talk about with your S/O because you're apart during the day
4. It tests whether the relationship is really worth it
5. Meeting their new friends means more friends for you!
6. Sex/physical intimacy is so much better when you've been waiting for it
7. It will show you how much your partner really values you
8. You don't need to pick between your friends and partner during the week
9. It helps keep you focused

I hope that this helped anyone that needed to hear it.

Not the Best Grade 11 Marks...
Grade 11 was by far my worst year academically and that's due to laziness (i will admit) and some personal issues, but I want to apply for university and go away. I had a 60% average  in grade 11. 

My grades in grade 11 were:
World Religions • 63%  
English • 64%  
Functions • 9% (the class i couldn't drop and did nothing in)
American History • 70%   
Canadian Law • 77%  
Anthropology, Psych • 70%  
College Mathematics • 71% (the class i was told wasn't available despite the fact that there were 2 classes for this course with 15 people each...)
Hospitality and Tourism • 57%

My top schools (in order) are Carleton, U Ottawa, Laurier  and I was thinking of either going in undeclared or straight into either sociology or humanities, I want a BA. I don't have my midterms yet or even a progress report but I know I'm currently getting between low-70s to mid-80s (I'm taking Philosophy, English, Social Justice, and Indigenous Studies).

How important are my grade 11 marks? I'm honestly not looking for early acceptance, I literally just want to be accepted. The only reason I'm still considering these school and programs is because this website MyBlueprint is telling me I'm still currently qualified for them but I don't know how accurate it is :/. I have to start applying in like a month and I don't want to waste my parents $50 per school application if my chances of getting in are near impossible.
