Which Business Supplementary Applications are Timed?
I've applied to multiple business schools and was just wondering which supplementary applications are timed before I begin. 
I would like to know which ones I'll be able to work on day to day instead of in a timed matter. 
Thanks everyone.

Thoughts on my Extracurriculars
Hello Yconic!
I've applied to Western BMOs with Ivey, Queen's Commerce, Shulich BBA, Rotman Commerce, and Waterloo AFM.
I have a couple ECs and was wondering which ones are the strongest to use on my application. (Having a really hard time deciding!)
1. Dropshipping E-commerce Business (6 months)
2. Focus on Youth/Big Brothers Big Sisters Camp Counsellor (PAID co-op, 3 months during this past summer. Coordinated then ran a camp for children ages 6-12 who lived in disadvantaged areas. I served as  mentor to these children.)
3. School Basketball/Volleyball team member all 4 years of highschool, (Captain of basketball team in grade 9, 10 and captain of volleyball team in grade 10)
4. Business SHSM student.
5. Tutoring in math, science, and english (2 years)
6. Executive member at my local temple committee with my father. (volunteer every Sunday and run events and charities throughout the year. Started 4 years ago)
7. 300+ volunteer hours (4 years)

In my opinion, my top 3 are:
1. Dropshipping
2. Focus on Youth
3. Executive Member at my temple.

I know these are not anything insane, but I would like some feedback on the extracurriculars and how I should describe them in my essays.

Thank you all in advance.

Adding a Program to OUAC Before Deadline
Hey guys. 
So I've already applied to a couple business schools a couple weeks ago, and have heard back from all of them to further complete my application. 
I forgot to add Brock Accounting however, and a lot of my friends are being admitted. 
Is it worth applying to one last program the day before the deadline? 
Will that affect my admission to Brock or any other university?
Also, do you guys know if they are still giving out early acceptances within the coming days? 
Thank you all in advance!

Thanks

BBA/BComm program for 89-92 avg with low EC's???
Hi,
I'm a current grade 12 high school student in BC with a projected top 4 avg of high 80s - low 90s (Eng, Pre-calc, calc, law). I'm looking to go into a business program (probably in Ontario). I've applied to Rotman, UTM, Ryerson, and probably going to apply to Laurier soon. 

Unfortunately, my EC's are fairly limited (couple jobs, rugby, grad exec, really basic, non-leadership stuff) which I'm assuming will keep me from any of the better b-schools (Rotman, Queens, Ivey, Sauder, etc). Can anyone recommend a decent school for me that will let me in despite my poor extracurriculars? I'm projecting a final top 4 average of 89-92%.

Thanks in advance for any help! :)
I think some highschoolers are mistaken about top business programs on this forum
I'm in high school myself by the way.
going to the top schools won't get u a job, its the effort you put in to market yourself.
I know people who went to ryerson and york commerce that got into the big4.
I believe the university you go to does not ultimately decide if you get a yearly salary.
everyone starts from the bottom earning 30-50k a year then slowly moves up.
wake up people.
if I'm wrong, prove me other wise and don't use linkedin or whatever  thats not real evidence.
only good thing about top schools is there alumni

What can I do with my course?
I am thinking of choosing BBA with Financial Math in Laurier for co-op for a lot of opportunities that it gives me. I know I can definitely do a Financial course with this degree, but will I also be able to do some forms of accounting in BBA? Is there a minor option in this degree? what are the jobs that i can get with bba w financial math?
First Year Accounting and Financial Management Student (Waterloo AFM)
Hi everyone, I am a first year AFM student at Waterloo and last year I was in your position. I was trying to figure out which university programs to apply to and I heavily relied on this website to make my final decisions from first years in the respected programs. If any prospective students in high school are looking to pursue the AFM program at Waterloo I would love to answer any questions, and talk about my experiences so far! I was admitted with a 91% average with excellent EC's. 

Which University Has The Best Business Porgram
The universities I have applied for are McMaster, Carleton, Universoty of Ottawa, Brock (bba), university of Windsor, and Guelph, all for their business programs. If I get into Degroote I will definelty go there but I'm worried I might be off by a percent or two. I'm pretty confident I'll get into the other programs so I was wondering which one is best. My aunt was telling me that if I can't get into McMaster Carleton might be the best option especially if I want to pursue finance which I'm planning on doing.

Chances for Ivey AEO at Western University
I'm applying for Ivey AEO along with BMOS this year. My Grade 11 average was a 99 and I am also expecting my Grade 12 average (by March) will be 98/99. Admittedly, my EC's are pretty lacklustre. For example, Royal Canadian sea cadets for 3 years, school band for 4 years where I've been lead trumpet/section leader, working in a managerial position at my parents' business for 4 years, and many, many hours of tutoring. Within sea cadets, I've gone on summer leadership camps also. 

1.How do you think my chances would be for AEO? My sisters who've been accepted to AEO in the past (2012) have told me that it used to be fairly simple to get by I am unsure of how it might be currently. 
2. I am also applying for the Western National Scholarship program, would this greatly increase my chances of obtaining AEO?
3. Are they able to check how many volunteer hours you've obtained or how many hours you've worked? Most of my tutoring hours are unmarked in addition to my working hours as they were for my parents. 
4. Finally, do they look at Grade 11 marks for AEO or is it only Grade 12 marks? 

Sorry for the many questions, but Ivey is my dream school.

URGENT: I THINK I MESSED UP MY APPLICATIONS
Guys I NEED HELP!
So on the OUAC profile, I ranked 10 programs or whatever, reviewed and submitted my application and paid the fee. 
Now what!? 
I got scared thinking I messed it up. Is this true?????
OUAC says I have a couple days until I can access everything again, so once that happens, is that the time when write my essays or something? 
Im so scared, I feel like I messed up big time, 
someone please help and inform me on if I did anything wrong or right.

Need help with Finance Program
I'm looking to get into a finance or business admisistration program. However, I'm having a hard time with selecting a finance program. I took AF and Data and I'm looking for a program that requires a low-mid 80s average. Please give me some suggestions. P.S. Do not want to leave Ontario for school
Queen's Commerce and Ivey AEO with poor ECs?
What are the chances I'll be accepted into either of these programs if my ECs aren't too extensive? I played football all through high school both for my school and for a rep team (and did a small amount of coaching), but that's pretty much it. I do however have a 96% average as of now. With how competitive the programs are, does someone like myself stand a chance? Thanks!
