Uottawa vs Western Vs Guelph Pharmacy
So I have applied to Uottawa for bipharmaceutical science, Guelph for pharmaceutical and chemical science, and western for pharmacology(BMsc). Which of these would be the best and which would be better for the path to becoming a pharmacist?
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 (:

QUEENS ARTS OR WESTERN HEALTH SCIENCE
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?

Guelph Biomedical Science 2019
Hello Everyone!
I have applied to the Biomedical Science program at the University of Guelph. The first round of acceptances is coming up, so if you have applied I was hoping we could discuss:
-Career goals
-Current total average and course averages
-Later, when offers are put out, what average were you accepted with?
-Do you know a lot of people who have applied to this program?
-I understand that the admission cutoff is 84-89%, I know a lot of people at my school that have applied to this program and I am concerned about the cutoff average inflating

Career Goals: Veterinary Specialist
My current average is: 91%
Biology: 93%
Health Sci: 95%
Chemistry: 85%
Courses Next Semester:
English
Law
Advanced Functions

I know that my chemistry grade is low and unfortunately, it is not a subject that I excel in. However, based on the courses I have next semester I know that my average will go up and I hope to receive an offer after midterms. Do you think it is possible to get accepted with this current average?
If you are currently in this program, could you please share the average you were accepted with, when you were accepted, and maybe a bit about your experience in this program?
Thank you and please respond with kindness.

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?

Western Engineering 2018-2019
Hey guys so I applied to U of T Eng  (Civil), Western Eng, Guelph Eng (undeclared first year), and Waterloo (civil) on Dec 20 with the following midterm marks:
Eng:90
Accounting: 97
Functions: 87
Chemistry:85

My grade 11 average was 93.5 and now sem 1 has almost ended with my anticipated grade 12 marks (going into the exam) to be:
Eng: 93
Accounting: 96
Functions: 88 or 89
Chemistry: 84 or 85

So do you guys think I'll get into the western eng program? I did the connect profile with decent ECs. Let me know what eng programs you guys have applied, if you got an offer and when and avg u currently have!

***Update Final Sem 1 Marks:

English: 93
Accounting 96
Functions: 90
Chemistry 82  (RIP)

I got into Guelph at the beginning of Feb but that all I have heard. There has even been some kids that had below 90 avg (and did not do the connect) and got into Western eng before me. I know its still a little early but I feel like should have gotten an offer by now. Thoughts?

Heavily relying second semester, GRADE 12? Need Help
Hey everyone, 
So I applied to Queens, Guelph, Ottawa, and Western for Computer Science. I did pretty bad in grade 11 so I am going for early acceptance. This semester I am taking physics, earth and space science, and personal fitness. Next semester I have 5 courses: Calculus (night school), English, Online Challenge and Change, Food and Nutrition, Fitness Leadership. 
1st Semester:
- Earth and Space: 95
- Physics: 60
-Personal Fitness: 93
So the thing is, after second semester mid terms, physics would not be in my top 6, so will universities care about my physics mark? As during 1st round of acceptances, universities will only see my bad physics mark, and my SES mark. If I get 90's (Which I Will) next semester, do I have anything to worry about? In addition, I have not completed my volunteer hours yet, does it matter when I complete them or as long as I complete them by the end of the year? 
Would appreciate any feedback/answers. 
Will I get into Western sciences with an 88%?
I am freaking out because i feel like im not going to get into any of the unis i applied to. 
I applied to three science programs at western (general science, health science, and med science). Health science is my top choice. Western is the uni i want to go to, but do i have the grades to get in realistically?

English - 93%
Calc - 90%
Chem - 80%
Bio - 88%
Extra Course (mixed) - 90%
Extra Course (mixed) - 90%
But this is what i hope to end with, the semester is still going... i can get these marks.. but idk if ill get into the program i want to.

Can anyone please help im stressing so much. I also applied to guelph med sci and mcmaster life science.. is there a chance ill get in there?

thank you so much
McMaster vs. Queen's vs. Ottawa vs. Guelph vs. Others
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.

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)

Victory Lap and UofG
Does the University of Guelph still accept applicants who have taken a victory lap to boost their marks? More specifically, will the bio-med program still be available for people in grade 13?

Another unemployed engineering grad...
Why is there so much hype among high school students for engineering programs when even U of T engineering graduates are unemployed/underemployed in the Canadian job market? Have these kids even done their research?
