Are all conditional offers created equal?

Anonymous

This may be a dumb question, but if two people are accepted to the same program at the same school, will the conditions outlined in their offers be the same? Or do the acceptance's conditions depend on the student's current academic standing?

Hey anyone applied to Food Science?

What do you guys think of the field? I've heard there are lots of high paying jobs after taking food science. I wonder if it's true.

I'm interested in this field.

So anyone wanna give their insight? 

I feel like people just apply to life sciences, business, or social science. I don't have anyone to talk to about food science.

Waiting to hear from you all!!

Management Engineering at Waterloo

Hi, I've been hearing some varying things about MAnagement Engineering at waterloo.

Some older posts say its not "accredited" (not sure what that means), while some other posts indicate it as not being as respected. 

I really would like to go into a engineering program with good job prospectives after graduation, however I would like to have a business component to my education. 

Mt marks are mid-80s so I'm not sure I'll get in anywhere else.

If someone could clarify or just tell me your thought on the management engineering program, that would be cool! Thanks!

University of Toronto Engineering Student - Ask Me Anything

Hey everyone! I started this thread to answer questions from the potential class of 2017, and to keep all of the University of Toronto-related items in one place. 

I'm a first year engineering student at the University of Toronto and I'm currently studying electrical/computer engineering (same courses as TrackOne). I commute to school every day, so I can't really answer that many questions about residence, but I'm sure others will be willing to chime in on that. 

Without further ado, ask away!

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.

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

For Ontario admission requirements, the perquisites are English and Calc and then they say "80% in English and 85% in top 6 math course". What does this mean exactly? Does it mean Calc must be in your top 6 and you must have over 85? Or can only Adv. Functions be in your top 6 with over 85? Does it have to be both? Confused!!

UBC Arts Transfer Fall 2015

Anonymous
6 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hi Everyone,

I'm a transfer student currently finishing second year at the moment. I've applied to UBC Arts, and my application status has been saying my file is ready for an evaluation for the past week and a half or so. Has anyone transferring received any word back from UBC Admissions? If so, would you mind sharing your average? :) 

My average is sitting at approximately 77% based on my last 30 credits. Does anyone know what the usual cut off average is? I would also really appreciate any insight as to whether my average will be competitive for a third-year transfer or not? I've heard a lot of mixed claims, with some saying low seventies is all you need.

Thank you everyone!
