Has anyone been accepted to SFU Beedie? SFU already started sending our admission offers for their other faculties but I am yet to see one for Beedie. 

If you have been accepted what was your average and your broad based like? 

Also does anyone know around when Beedie will start sending out offers?

Sauder/MES & Science CSP - Ask Us Anything

16 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC by jack love
Prospective students! A year ago I recall being in your very shoes when I began applying for university. I know how overwhelming it can be so I'm just leaving this out here if anyone wants to ask me and my friend some general/specific questions about our experience. If you're not interested in Science or Commerce, you can still ask us some specific questions as we have friends in other faculties. 

A little about us:

We are high school friends from Surrey, BC who were not part of any IB/AP program other than an AP Calculus course we took. We had fairly high averages and decent extra-curricular involvement (won't go into details for now), but we also know some friends who did not have either and still made it (don't fret!). 

I only applied to SFU and UBC. For UBC, I applied to Sauder with Engineering as my second choice and I was accepted into both. It was a tough decision choosing between faculties and I did a LOT of research so if you have any questions about that I'm your guy. I had received a scholarship from SFU at the time also, but I ended up picking Sauder simply because it felt like the right fit for me. Two weeks later I found out I won the Major Entrance Scholarship which was very cool and unexpected. 

My friend was accepted into UBC, McGill and SFU. He plans on entering med school and knows quite a bit about the process. Currently he is in CSP (Coordinated Science Program) and he's also working a part time job.

We're both living on residence (Totem, HMSM) and have friends who commute so we can give you some insight into both.

Hopefully we can be of some assistance to you guys.

U of T Life Science Discussion

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC
Hey guys. I just thought it would be nice if future U of T life science students (admitted/waiting for admission)can get together and discuss anything here, like concerns, studying, having fun in Toronto etc. Feel free to share anything!

I got accepted 2 weeks ago with a 89 average. Gotta bump it up for the scholarship! I'm from a small BC city, Victoria so I'm super pumped to experience the vibrant city life in Toronto as well as studying my head off starting in September. My only concern is that I heard there are like 2000 students listening to the same lecture there so I think it will be hard to find new friends.

Will CS at U of T prepare me for a software engineering career?

1 reply • Last reply: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
I'm interested in a career in software engineering and I've been doing research on the difference between software engineering and computer science programs. I've received an offer from University of Ottawa for SE, and I'm confident I will be accepted to UoT's CS. I'm wondering if A CS from UoT will allow me to specialize in software engineering. If so, how well compared to software engineering at any other school? Computer science programs seam less specialized in anything in particular, and I'm afraid of being stuck with a degree I have no serious use for, but The UoT prestige is a big part of the reason I'm considering computer science. Is an undergraduate degree even enough to be taken seriously as a software engineer, and which of these degrees is best complemented by business knowledge? 
Thanks in advance.

Canadian Securities Course before university?

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.

Anyone going to York/Sheridan Design? [YSDN]

1 reply • Last reply: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hi there! I was offered admission into YSDN last month and I'm highly considering accepting the offer. It's actually the only design program I applied for and the program itself looks great but I'm a bit hesitant about York's campus life/security or really what people at the school or in the program will be like so I figured I would reach out and hopefully hear from some current or prospective YSDN students! Any thoughts/comments/advice?

Biomedical Sciences at Waterloo or Medical Sciences at Western????

Anonymous

Hi everyone!
I got accepted to both Biomedical Sciences at Waterloo and Medical Sciences at Western. I'm really confused about which one to go... I've heard Western has a great program for Medicine, but it has a lot of competition... so I'm not too sure.. and Biomedical Sciences at Waterloo has less competition but is the program good?

Does both schools prepare you well for med school and MCAT? which one's better?
What about the overall atmosphere of the two schools?
Residence?
People?
Overall ??

Please answer my numerous questions lol, this is so confusing and I really depend on these answers since I don't live in Ontario...

thanks everyone!!! :)

Official Q&A with Ivey Admissions and Recruiting

1878 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 06, 2015 UTC by Nicki D
Welcome to this thread where you can ask me anything about the HBA Program and the student experience for all years at Western and Ivey.
 
To provide you with some background, I recently graduated from the Honors Business Adminstration Program (HBA) this past year and currently working with the school as the HBA Recruiting Associate. I work closely with most areas of the school, including the admissions committee, career management and faculty.
 
Throughout my years at Western and Ivey I have been involved in a wide variety of activities, most of my time was consumed with residence life and student government; although I have dabbled in a number of club executive positions, intramural activities and a number of different student jobs on campus.

This would be a great forum to dispel some rumours about the program and clear up some of the myths about Ivey. I look forward to our discussions.
