Canadian Securities Course before university?

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC
I am not informed about the CSC at all other than the fact that I know it makes inexperienced students more competitive for finance internships and that students take it after first/second year. I will be attending b-school this fall but will not have co-op in the first summer. However, I still want to find a relevant job. Will the CSC help me out? Is it even possible to complete before university? I will have 2 months in the summer free to study.

I have been accepted to both uottawa and carleton for criminology. I love the city of ottawa and want to go there, but I can't decide which one to go to. Which school is better for criminology? And which school has more of a social scene? I want to go to a school where there is friendly people, a good campus atmosphere, and good parties.

Waterloo Social Life

0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC
So far I've been accepted to Waterloo Systems Design Engineering, Queens Engineering, and Mcgill ECE, and I can't decide where I want to go. 

For me personally, I want to go somewhat into the software industry (may change), so from what I've heard Waterloo has an incredible co-op program which can help me accomplish this through systems design. At the same time though I love to socialize, party (turnup), and be involved in extra curriculars, so from what I've heard Waterloo is not really the place to go :(. 

Queens and McGill both have awesome social scenes, better than Waterloo (so I hear) so I really don't know what to choose! I want to get the most out of my 4 years at Uni ( 5 at UW ) but I also want to land a killer job after! Any thoughts on what I should do? :/ Thanks! 

PS - Since I'm going into engineering it's not like I'll have all the time to party anyway, so at most I'll go out once ir twice a week. At UW I'll have Laurier (got some buds over there) and the town so I cant see it being that bad. Let me know what you think!

-Camp Counsellor at day camp (summer 2013)

Basically what the title says. I have a 79.3% average and by end of second semester i don't think i will go up considering chemistry is hard and so is english. However i feel confident about calc and vec so that might boost me up to a 80-81%. Anyways with my current average of 79.3% from first semester will utm accept me?
