I initially applied to Dalhousie University, which is closely affiliated to King's; and two weeks into my program realized that the latter was a better fit for me - and therefore I transferred. I applied to 4 Canadian Universities, out of which I got into 3 - one of them was Dal, my top choice. I did A levels in humanities in the 12th grade - Sociology, Psychology, English and English literature.
It's very heavy, but enjoyable if you like reading.
