Hello Everyone,

I am currently a third year York University student hoping to apply for second entry nursing at York

only next year (yes I am going through the strike).

Since applications open in November, I thought it would be best to get this forum started. I am hoping to get more insight into the program and I hope current and past nursing students would share their views on the program and how job searching went. Also, what nursing specialties do most York nursing graduates enter as I am hoping to get into public health. Furthermore, share your insights on Humber, McMaster, U of T, Trent, Queens, Western, Ottawa and Nippissing. (I think that is all) and don't forget to include your acceptance GPAs.

Hey everyone!

U of t fourth year student here (about to enter fifth year at st.george). I am applying to U of T, Queens, Western and UBC once applications start in November this year. First choice is u of t!!!

I am taking summer courses so I will be using the grades from my last winter semester, this summer semester and the upcoming fall semester for my application. Winter semester is 3.88, summer semester is going incredibly well so probably will end up with a 4.0 (fingers crossed). Haven't been too involved outside of school besides one summer in a research lab, and volunteering at two organizations helping kids with learning disabilities. Kinda worried because I don't know whether I should find more volunteering opportunities or just focus on my grades. Any advice?

Best of luck everyone! I really hope everyone here gets into their dream program.

Hello,

Graduated Political Science at Lakehead in 2009, CGPA 3.3. Doing a B.Ed (2nd degree) in Adult Education from Brock online, have 3 of 5 courses in the B. Ed completed at 3.7 GPA. Average last 2 years worth of courses counting both degrees is probably 3.5, 3.6.

I can't wait to apply and I'm completing Anatamy and Psysiology online at Athabasca now, and Medical Microbiology next Spring at U of T online.

I won't have the pre-reqs done until April, so hopefully can get conditional offers.

Looking to apply to U of T, Western, Queens, NiPissing, Trent, UOttawa and York.

Hello everyone! I'm a third year Queen's student majoring in health studies and also completing a business certificate.

My GPA for the winter semester was 3.925/4.3 on the Queen's GPA scale. I'm not sure how they convert that to the U of T 4.0 scale, but I hope I will still be competitive. I have completed most of the pre-requisites such as anatomy (4.3) physiology (4.0) statistics (4.3) and social sciences of course. I am enrolled in Athabasca University for full-year physiology (BIO 230) but I have 2 other summer courses as well so I haven't have time to even start it! I hope I will be able to finish it by June and get a conditional offer of admission. I am hoping that my summer courses will boost my GPA as well. Unfortunately, my CGPA is pretty low (3.53/4.3), but I hope to bring it up a lot.

My first choice is U of T! I heard they accept applicants who have a lot of diversity in their program (I have taken a mixture of social science, business, and science courses so I hope this helps me out!).

My volunteer experience is decent. I have volunteered for Peer Health Educators, attended Queen's Healthcare and Business Conference as a delegate, and have volunteered and worked a paid position for Leave the Pack Behind. I recently got hired to work for the Queen's library (student assistant position) and I am hoping to volunteer for another club this year!

I am applying to U of T, Western, and UBC (and maybe U of Ottawa but I heard they only accept around 20 students!) in November.

I am looking forward to interacting and getting to know you guys during this stressful process and hopefully we will get admitted to at least one program!

Hello Everyone,

I am currently going into my fourth year at York University. In this upcoming year, I will be applying to accelerated nursing program at York, University of Toronto, Western, Queen, Trent, Humber and McMaster. My cgpa is relatively low (~3.2/4.0) but my last 30 credits are 3.6 and assuming I can maintain getting an A in all my fall courses, I can boost my GPA to 3.78. My last 60 credits GPA is ~3.4, which can be boosted to 3.56 with my fall courses. I have finished all my prerequisite, receiving a B in all of them, except anatomy. My extracurricular includes being a peer mentor, doing research with 2 different professor, volunteering at hospital for the last 2 years and working at a pharmacy for over the year.

I am really worried about my GPA not being sufficient enough for me to get into the program as accelerated nursing is highly competitive. Furthermore, I am worried about casper. That being said, does anyone know when the casper dates are? I have checked both York and Trent website and they don't have them published?

Hi guys,

I'm in my third year at Western right now and I've applied to the Western, UofT and Queen's programs on OUAC. My first choice right now is UofT, and my GPA for last year was around a 3.7 on the 4.0 scale, hoping to pull it up this year.

Awesome to meet you all, can't wait to start this journey!

Hi all, I am currently a fourth year student at UofT. Because of my difficulty transitioning from high school to university, my first three semesters' GPA is low and therefore my cGPA is on the lower end compared to some of you guys (~3.10/4.0 scale). My recent GPA is around ~3.5 and I'll do my best to try and bump it up more. However I am still hopeful. I have volunteered at the hospital for 3+ years, at the library for 3, and currently a research assistant with some lab assistant experience.

My first choice is UofT's program. I am nervous for applying but excited and I wish you guys all the best! How are you guys all doing?

Hi, taken from their site: "To be eligible to enter the BScN program, applicants must have completed at least ten (10) university full-course equivalents prior to admission, with at least a mid-B (approximately 75% or 3.0 GPA) average in the final year of study, or the last five (5) full-course equivalents of their university education." 400 Bad Request

and

"I am pursuing the fourth year of my degree and grades for my final year will not be available until May, which courses will be considered for my grade average?

 

Completed courses of your most recent year of studies (usually Fall term courses of year 4, Summer courses - if any, and Winter courses for year 3) will be considered for grade average calculation at the time of our admissions review. The Admissions Office will recalculate your final year average when you submit final transcripts with all completed grades." 400 Bad Request

They look at your last 5.0 credits when you apply so if you'll be completing more at the end of the session, they'll look at the credits before for consideration since the last 5 credits are still in progress.

Hi all!

Has anyone completed the OUAC form yet for UofT? Does anyone know what the transcript timing option should be?
