Once you've been accepted is there any way to figure out which stream you're in? Is there any way yo mamximize your chance of getting into one stream over another. Stream 4 looks like it really sucks compared to 8. Do ece mostly get 8?

Emails from universities?

Anonymous
4 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
I know this might sound stupid, but is it normal for students not to get emails from universities even when they are accepted? I was accepted to SFU for a while, I didn't realize until the letter showed up and the site told me I was accepted. Same with University of Toronto, I didn't get any email but their site lists me as admitted.

Canadian Securities Course before university?

Anonymous

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.

Hi! I was just accepted to the commerce program and I don't really know anything about it. I was just wondering if anyone in the program could share a bit about it such as what the classes are like, how hard it is, how much flexibility you have to take the courses you want, and anything else you would find valuable to know. I have heard McGill is impossible so I am really worried about going! Thanks in advance.

1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers: 


1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens  (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year


So common guys, reveal yourselves! ;)

Waterloo Social Life

Anonymous
3 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
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!

3rd Year Brock BBA/BAcc Co-op student, ask me anything!

37 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC by Anonymous

I'm basically always on here so figured might as well make one of these and help out any prospective students. 

Background:
- First 2 years spent as BBA Co-op student, secured first coop term through BBA
- Transferred into BAcc Co-op after 2 years
- Currently on co-op

You kinda get the best of both worlds since I have been in all (both) the programs offered at the Goodman School of Business!

And since I know these are gonna be popular Qs:

WHEN SEARCHING FOR 1ST CO-OP:
- Avg (both major and overall) ~80%
- ECs: Leadership position in a club, some entrepreneurial stuff, sports stuff
- Work XP: General accounting internship at no-name organization doing very basic stuff, manual labour

Since attending Brock, I have received interview requests from (in no particular order):
RBC x2, Canadian Tire Financial Services, Imperial Oil (Alberta), Ontario Securities Commission (CPA Approved), Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, Big 4 Audit (Toronto), Suncor (Alberta), TeamBuy.ca, and CPP Investment Board.

Note: These were not all co-op positions, some were just summer internship interviews.

AT TIME OF APPLYING TO UNIVERSITY:
- Rejected from BAcc Co-op
- Accepted to BBA Co-op with 83.5% top 6


So feel free to ask me anything and I'll try to answer your Qs as best as I can!

*Even if nobody has posted in this topic for a while, feel free to do so, chances are I'm still lurking on here

Which is better George Brown or Centennial for the RN nursing collaborative program with Ryerson?

0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC
Recently I have been accepted into both campuses for the RN nursing collaborative program. Centennial is a very close commute to me as oppose to George Brown, but I love the Lakeshore feel of the George Brown campus. I heard that the curriculum is very similar in all three campuses. My first choice is still the Ryerson campus downtown, but I'm still waiting for an acceptance there, since it's still early. But I'm wondering what are the experiences like in both campuses? Facility wise, socially and of course the learning experience. How are the professors? How is student life at these campuses?
