Will grades added to our transcript after the equal consideration deadline still be considered?
Roland Straatsma
32:55
Yes
Noah Guttman
32:56
@Selena yes
Noah Guttman
33:03
I know this might be unrelated, but with regards to out-of-province applications, what is the deadline to get guidance support?
Roland Straatsma
33:30
There is no deadline for support. We will support you as best we can
Helena Geleff
33:44
Is there a specific date to apply for early acceptance? Or is it anytime in November?
Noah Guttman
33:47
Ok thanks
Olivia Johnston
35:27
Can we apply to universities with our grade 11 marks?
Kate Rowatt
35:29
Will any Universities use our grade 11 marks? For example if my required math class is in the last quad next year
Noah Guttman
35:49
@Kate it depends on the program and where
Noah Guttman
36:02
@Kate if its out of ONtario, then yes
Hannah Zemans-Ronthal
36:43
Are we less likely to be accepted to a program if we don’t have one of our pre reqs until last quad?
Noah Guttman
37:52
Would an arts program look at my application differently if I took English over the summer
Georgina Tsaparis
38:43
If we take courses in the summer will that be considered instead of the grade 11 mark.
Mira Posluns
39:13
Do they take into account enriched programs when looking at marks?
Roland Straatsma
39:32
In short, no
Sofia Shekhmatova
41:35
Are there exams next year for quad?
Chloe Connop
41:53
How many M courses are we allowed to submit within our top 6 for most programs?
Roland Straatsma
41:53
We don't have that information yet
Emily Staroselski
42:36
Will existing Grade 12 grades be considered if they are not a part of your program prerequisites
Roland Straatsma
42:37
Chloe - that will depend on the program and university. Requirements will vary
Tal Perry
42:52
Are you gonna prioritize putting more important courses (such as prerequisites) in earlier quads to avoid using grade 11 makrs
Roland Straatsma
42:54
Emily - yes
Ava Pearson
43:17
Will the descision to go back to quads next year chnage depending on the covid situation or is it decided?
Roland Straatsma
43:43
Tal - no. We cannot control that. No one is disadvantaged by having certain courses in certain quads. Universities recognize this
Roland Straatsma
44:28
Ava - possibly. Toronto Public Health may influence the Board's decision, perhaps into the summer
Roland Straatsma
47:22
All offers of admissions are conditional. Marks will be reviewed one final time in early July once final grades have been submitted after the school year ends
Noah Guttman
48:20
Would commencement awards also have scholarships associated
Noah Guttman
49:48
Also, would arts programs outside of Canada require SAT or ACT
Georgina Tsaparis
49:58
Do summer courses not count for your top 6?
Noah Guttman
50:07
@Georgina no
Roland Straatsma
50:36
Georgina - yes
Noah Guttman
50:49
Oh wait sorry my bad
Janine Sacks
50:50
Georgia- summer courses can count for your top 6 credits for university, but they do not count as your 6 courses to stay full time at LP
Georgina Tsaparis
51:12
Got it thank you
Roland Straatsma
51:54
Full time status at LP is a minimum of 6 day courses at LP in
Roland Straatsma
52:00
in Grade 12
Noah Guttman
52:09
Would commencement awards also have scholarships associated
Noah Guttman
52:21
Also, would arts programs outside of Canada require SAT or ACT
Mira Posluns
52:30
For applying to American schools - how do we get a report of our GPA from LP
Roland Straatsma
52:47
GPA is not a calculated by TDSB
Roland Straatsma
53:03
Anyone can request a transcript or credit counselling summary
Sofia Shekhmatova
53:14
How do we apply to non Ontario schools
Roland Straatsma
53:44
Outside Ontario schools? Go directly to their website for info
Noah Guttman
53:45
Ok
Sophia Braileanu
54:15
Would American schools recgonize that tdsb doesn’t calculate GPA
Emma Cass
54:39
How can we access all of the links that were in the ppt, will they be posted somewhere?
Roland Straatsma
55:07
This presentation will be posted to the LP website

Katia Litvinova
56:14
I have a few more questions
Teagan Kerr
57:51
Do schools care if we take classes over the summer? Will that change the way they look at those marks?
Roland Straatsma
59:08
Teagan, generally no. As long as they offered by ministry-inspected schools
Roland Straatsma
59:50
With rare exception, some programs may demand first attempt only at day school only. Check the admission requirements of the program to which you are applying
Mila Damjanovic
01:00:31

Roland Straatsma
01:00:38
Mila - no
Chloe Connop
01:00:43
Is there a limit to the amount of programs or universities that we can apply to?
Roland Straatsma
01:01:10
The fee for the past several years has been $150 for three program choices
Roland Straatsma
01:01:27
You can pay $50 for each additional program
Roland Straatsma
01:02:22
The most I have seen a student apply to is 10. Would you need to apply to more than that?
Roland Straatsma
01:02:41
So I can't say for certain if there is a limit
Roland Straatsma
01:04:04
We will be essentially repeating this presentation again in the fall
Helena Geleff
01:04:17
What if it is more than 10 different programs in total? For instance, if you apply to several different programs within a University?
Roland Straatsma
01:05:01
No there is a maximum at one university of 3 programs
Roland Straatsma
01:05:27
You cannot apply to 10 programs at one university
Helena Geleff
01:05:53
Yes, I understood that. I meant in total like 10+ programs amounts various universities.
Bernice Mak
01:06:06
Are different campuses of a university considered as 1 university or multiple
Ava Pearson
01:06:50
Are athletic scholarships offered in canada ?
Roland Straatsma
01:06:50
UTM for example is considered a different application than St George U of T campus
Sofia Shekhmatova
01:07:41
Can you apply for different schools at different times?
Roland Straatsma
01:07:48
Helena - I have not heard of an upper limit to the number of applications. I cannot say
John Williams
01:08:08
If we have funcal in quad 4, will universities consider our grade 11 functions mark to cover both grade 12 functions and calculus? Or does it only cover grade 12 functions?
Roland Straatsma
01:08:11
You can start your application one day and finish on another day
Jan Smailbegovic
01:08:30
If you take the SAT would Canadian universities use your score to help with the decision process
Sofia Shekhmatova
01:08:33
Like can I apply to one school in Nov and one in Jan?
Roland Straatsma
01:09:12
Sofia -sure. As long as your application is complete by the deadline. They will not process until then
Roland Straatsma
01:09:37
Jan - no
Tessy Valiakhmetova
01:09:40
Is there a time limit to when you can accept or decline an offer from university/college?
