    Are you Canadian or PR? If you are then you have a decent shot at UofT if you do well in the last term since a lot of you key courses come from that term. If you are not, then I think it will be difficult for UofT but you probably have a chance at the other schools.

    Yes, if you're a Canadian I would expect you to have some options between the top four.

    Yes, I am a Canadian citizen. Thanks for your reply, that’s reassuring. I will try to get all A’s in my last 2 terms.

    Thanks CanadianEcon. Yes, I’m a Canadian citizen. Given the time constraints between now and applications season, what can I do to increase my chances and be more competitive?

    Are you doing an Honours BA? if not i would recommend that if you can do it in your last year upcoming. It would give you a bit of research experience and potentially a good reference. As well, as i recall a few programs asked in the application about the type of research papers i wrote in the undergraduate degree.
