ENG4U Online Course?

Anonymous
7 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Would taking an ENG4U Online course during the school year be harder than taking an in-class ENG4U course? 

I got a teacher who rarely gives marks higher than 75. Last year I got 93 in English, and now I'm struggling to maintain an 80, yet I need at least a high 80. I was wondering if I should drop out and switch to an online English 12 course, one month into the semester. Would that be possible? And would it be worth it?

Importance of Linux for UW Compsci

Anonymous
2 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by John Lennon
The recent post about a laptop for UW eng reminded me of something:

I heard from a few people that having linux or being able to run linux software is critical to passing certain courses at UW. Of course I can run software in a virtualbox, but its clunky and slow and uneffective.

Is it worth sideloading Linux onto my laptop? Or am I not going to need it at UW?

How are my chances for getting into the general sciences and Computer Science program at UBC-Vancouver? These are my completed grade 12 semester 1 courses, with their grades.  

 Pre-Calc 12: 95% 
 Physics 12: 99% 
Chemistry 12: 99% 

 I have english 12 this semester, and as it is my weakest course, I strive to attain a good mark in the course. Anyway, here is my english 11 mark, because from my understand UBC will use my Eng 11 mark.  

English 11: 87% 

  If I were to get accepted, what mark should I aim in English 12, this semester?

Waterloo's System Design Engineering VS Mcgill Chemical Engineering

Hey guys! I'm going into engineering next year and am having trouble deciding between McGill's chemical engineering program (14th in the world) or Waterloo's Systems Design Engineering program. Both seem great, but McGills seems to have alot more prestige. I was just wondering how UW's SYDE compares to Mcgill's Chem Eng in ways such as employability, jobs after graduation, enjoyment, workload etc. Thanks!

Admission Questions? Ask a Current UBC Student!

329 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by
Hi guys,

I always remember finding this forum really useful back when I was applying for universities in 2012, and I'd like to offer you the opportunity to actually get some hard knowledge about admissions rather than just hearsay.  Though I'm in Sauder, I can answer any questions regarding direct entry to all UBC programs, Sauder transfer applications, and general university stuff.

You should all also take a look at the holy grail of UBC admissions, specifically table 18 where all admission averages for all programs for entry in 2013W are outlined.

Hope to see you all at UBC in September!

Waterloo vs Alberta vs UBC: Co-op

1 reply • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
how's the co-op in each of these schools? I'm going for mechanical engineering. what are the usual kinds of jobs students get and what company?

I want to go to Waterloo since I've heard lots of good things but Alberta is a heck lot cheaper and gives more scholarships... I think UBC is cheaper too. I think I'll end up deciding mainly based on co-op though, since that's going to be a very important part of learning.

Hi everyone,
I'm applying to Engineering at U of T and have to pick a college for residence. Right now University, Innis, and New are my top 3 choices, but not sure what order to put them in.
Any thoughts? Food, sense of community, rooms, etc -- anything is appreciated.
Also, I hear you have to rank Innis 1st on OUAC but I didn't every see that option when I applied on OUAC... is this true?
Thanks!

Should I stay at home or leave? Help!

Anonymous
8 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 02, 2015 UTC by Sadie Rojo
Hi, everyone. If everything goes according to plan, I'll be facing two options: to go to McMaster and stay at home, or go to Queen's and stay on residence. 

My parents are paying for all my tuition, and my mom really would like me to stay as I would be saving them a lot of money. Also, if I were to attend McMaster, I will have my own car to drive and my parents will pay for all I need. They stated that at the end of the day, it's my choice, but I still feel extremely pressured to stay at home.

I personally would like to go to Queen's so I get the full experience and also would become independent. My parents are extremely strict and I feel as though my university experience would not reach its maximum potential if I were to stay at home. However, my mom says that I can "have fun when [I'm] finished school, and focus on [my] studies for now". 

Advice?
