Hi! I was just wondering if anyone else was waiting around to find out whether or not they got into an accelerated nursing program in ON? Where did you apply and when do people generally hear back from admissions?... Read More

    Thanks jbethune! I am super excited. I have until March 30 to accept UWO's offer, but if I hear from U of T before that then I'll definitely have a hard decision to make.

    I originally thought U of T was more inclined to give out early acceptances, but now I don't know. I still have to finish this course though, but all they expect me to maintain is a 60%, which is kind of funny. Let me know where you end up going!

    Hey guys, I was looking through my old Nursing applications, and I posted the wrong dates of acceptances.
    I received offers from York University in January, University of Toronto on March 18th, and Western on June 1st. Has anybody heard from York for early acceptances? I'm surprised I haven't heard back from them. I'm eagerly waiting for anything in March!
    I haven't heard back from York either. The York open house is next week, so it would be reasonable for acceptances to be sent out before then, right? That's if they haven't already done so...

    When exactly is the open house?

    I've applied to UofT, UWO, McMaster, Queen's, Trent (and UBC). No word from any Ontario schools yet, but I did get an invitation to interview at UBC today. I'm still working on prereqs, so I figure I'm a second-tier candidate and probably won't hear for a while.

    I did my bachelors from University of Toronto and now with my last year almost coming to an end I am standing at a 3.2 gpa for my this year's pre req. Does anyone know when U of T gives out admissions, is it based on last year or this year's grades? Another question is are there different programs that I can apply to and raise up my GPA?

    In terms of UofT Nursing, they said at the info session I attended last November that they look at your GPA for the last five FCEs you did before your degree was conferred, not including summer courses. In other words, once you have an undergrad degree, you can't improve your GPA for the purposes of applying to Bloomberg.

    However, I believe that if you're still completing your degree, they look at your most recent five FCEs.

    Thank you, and yes I am still completing my degree, however, I am confused if they will take into summer courses into account or just courses from last year and this year?

    I think they only look at full-time course loads, which means they don't look at summer.
