My marks:  
Computer Studies - Mid 60% 
French - 72%  
Math - 98%

I know exactly what i want to become and i have researched everything. I can easily do well in the next 2 years if i try. Do unis look at these grades when i apply for a scholarship?  btw i live in Canada. I dont even think unis look at your grade 9 and 10 marks anyways but I want to make sure.

Carleton University, Brock University or Mcmaster?

20 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC by Carleton Journo
I am having a huge dilemma whether to go to Brock or Carleton. I've applied to Brock, Carleton, McMaster and Guelph but I don't really want to go to guelph anymore and McMaster is losing my interest. 

Ive applied to Criminology and Criminal Justice in Concentration of Psychology at Carleton, Psychology and Socio at Brock (got accepted) and Socio at McMaster. If anyone knows details about these programs especially the one at Carleton, please tell me because it's a program that isn't available anywhere else. Ultimately, I want to do Criminology and Psychology. 

*** I want to choose a school that has a great social life and night life in the city, cultural diversity is also important to me as well as an accepting community. I also like school spirit***


If anyone goes to any of these schools or has heard things about it please let me know! I want all the info I can get. Thanks guys!!

Thanks for the answers guys, keep em coming I want all the opinions I can get plus I'm sure it'll help someone else debating the same thing.

New Baby Congratulations

The “scientific miracles” of the Quran is a topic that many people are talking about nowadays, as the research in many fields continues. The source for this is probably the fact that there are literally hundreds of verses of the Quran in which God points to different aspects of this creation and encourages humans to reflect and learn from what they are seeing.

Shortly after I became Muslim, I became aware of Maurice Bucaille’s The Bible, the Quran and Science. For the sake of brevity, I wish to share with you the important conclusions that he reached:

The Quran follows on from the two Revelations that preceded it and is not only free from contradictions in its narrations, the sign of the various human manipulations to be found in the Gospels, but provides a quality all of its own for those who examine it objectively and in the light of science i.e. its complete agreement with modern scientific data. What is more, statements are to be found in it (as has been shown) that are connected with science: and yet it is unthinkable that a man of Muhammad's time could have been the author of them. Modern scientific knowledge therefore allows us to understand certain verses of the Quran which, until now, it has been impossible to interpret.

In view of the level of knowledge in Muhammad's day, it is inconceivable that many of the statements in the Quran which are connected with science could have been the work of a man. It is, moreover, perfectly legitimate, not only to regard the Quran as the expression of a Revelation, but also to award it a very special place, on account of the guarantee of authenticity it provides and the presence in it of scientific statements which, when studied today, appear as a challenge to explanation in human terms.[1]

In his discussion of the Quran, Bucaille emphasizes three important points:

a) First, there is nothing in the Quran that contradicts modern science;

b) second, there is no mention of some of the false beliefs that people had at that time of the Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, concerning the creation, the universe and science in general; and,

c) three, there is no way that the Prophet Muhammad could have known at his time many of the facts alluded to in the Quran.

The Qur'an is the holy book for Muslims. It was revealed to an illiterate man, Muhammad, 1400 years ago. This is in itself amazing, that an illiterate man began to recite verses of literary genius. What is more amazing and miraculous is that he pronounced truths of a scientific nature that no other human could possibly have developed at that time (1400 years ago) and without making a single error.

For the sake of brevity, though, it will be possible to discuss only one verse in some detail here demonstrating the “scientific miracles” of the Quran.[2]

Upon reading the Quran, one topic that catches many a reader’s eye is the discussion of the creation of the human within the womb of the mother. God says in the Quran:

“We created man from an extract of clay. Then We made him as a drop in a place of settlement, firmly fixed. Then We made the drop into an alaqah (leech, suspended thing, and blood clot), then We made the alaqah into mudghah (chewed-like substance)…” (Quran 23:12-14)

This brief passage is outstanding in its precise description of the actual process as well as its freedom from all of the incorrect theories and views that were prevalent at the time of Muhammad. As noted in the translation, the Arabic word alaqah can imply leech, suspended thing or blood clot. In reality, all of these terms are descriptive of the embryo. In fact, in its earliest stage, the embryo not only actually physically looks like a leech
[3] but it “obtains nourishment from the blood of the mother, similar to the leech, which feeds on the blood of others.

”[4] Alaqah, again, can also mean, “suspended thing,” which is also true of the embryo in this stage as it sits hanging in the womb of the mother

.[5] Finally, alaqah can also mean blood clot. Again, the relationship to the actual physical process is miraculous.

UBC Engineering Cut off??

2 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
What's up guys...

So I've applied to UBC Applied Sciences Program, and like a lot of other people.. I was wondering my chances of getting in. I hear from a lot of people that UBC doesn't care too much about your personal profile but rather your academic standings. I was hoping you guys could give me some input.

So far I got my Term 2 grades (linear school)
Pre-Calculus 12: 97%
English 12: 94%
Physics 12 (Final): 88%
Chemistry 12: 84%
Which basically leaves me at a 90.75% Total Average.

I hear that if one course is much lower than the rest, that can really hurt your profile, and in my case, is my chemistry 12 grade too low?

So far.. I think I have a great Personal Profile.
- Top 3 in Provincials for Volleyball, while i compete in many other sports
-Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Very active in my community, I start a lot of programs with various community centres
- Work 2 jobs with a single mom
- Participate in school clubs
- Also I listed how I overcame adversity, and show how I became a stronger person overall through that.

Those are most of the key points I listed on my personal profile.

So to put this in a lot simpler form...
90.75% avg with a strong personal profile.

What do you think my chances are of getting in??

Cindy Shearin Group Real Estate News: 10 regler du behover veta innan du koper eller saljer ditt hem

0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC
Köper eller säljer ditt hem är en av de svåraste saker du kan behöva göra, och bostäder rapportdata kan endast lägga till förvirring.

En färsk rapport från The National Association of Realtors visade att om fler amerikaner köpt hem 2014, total försäljning halkade eftersom första gången köpare håller prissätts ut.

För en snabb impuls är här tips för första gången hem köpare navigera den skiftande marknaden. ABC News visade Spencer Rascoff, VD för Zillow, landets nr 1 real estate webbplats med mer än 90 miljoner användare varje månad. Rascoff utsågs en av Amerikas mest kraftfulla chefer under 40 av både lycka och Forbes. Och det är inte allt: vid 24 års ålder, han grundade webbplatsen online travel rabatt Hotwire och senare sålde sitt företag till Expedia.

Nu är han på ett uppdrag att hjälpa dig att få den bästa valuta för pengarna, oavsett om du är i marknaden för ett nytt hem eller vill sälja din befintliga en. Rascoffs nya bok, "Zillow prata: den nya regler för fastigheter," använder data för att avslöja fastigheter fiction och ge dig praktiska, pengasparande fakta.

Här är 10 pengasparande regler av fastigheter

1. bästa tiden att lista ditt hem

Rikstäckande, den bästa tiden är mitten av mars. Men om du bor i kallare klimat, det får skjuts till mitten av April. I varmare klimat är det lite tidigare i mars.

Internet har förändrat denna regel lite. Rascoff föreslog potentiella säljare vänta på tillströmningen av listor på våren att dyka upp på Internet, och den bästa tiden att listan är ett par veckor efter att tillströmningen.

2. ska du köpa värsta hem i stadsdelen trevligaste?

Nej, detta är en vanlig missuppfattning i fastigheter.

Miljontals bitar av data som analyseras för Rascoffs bok, "Zillow prata," bestäms den värsta hem i det bästa området inte kommer att uppskatta som snabbt.

3. manligt kontra kvinnligt: som fastighetsmäklare får du den bästa valuta för pengarna?

Enligt Zillows forskning, spelar kön roll. Zillow's data antyder om du vill köpa ett hem, leta efter en kvinnlig fastighetsmäklare. Hon kommer att vara mer villiga att förhandla och stänga affären snabbare.

Om du vill sälja ditt hem, kan du vara bättre söker en manlig fastighetsmäklare, som, enligt forskning, kommer att få dig närmare det ursprungliga utgångspriset.

4. är det bättre att alltid köpa istället för att hyra?

Du har hört dina föräldrar säger det, du kastar bort pengar om du hyr. Forskning visar enligt "Zillow prata," detta inte är helt sant.

Vanligtvis, om du kommer att vara i en fastighet i två eller flera år, ska du köpa det, Rascoff sa. Det finns dock undantag, beroende på var du bor. Det finns stora regionala skillnader i Miami, i Atlanta, i Detroit, sa Rascoff.

5. fakta eller fiktion: det handlar om plats

Du har ofta hört det handlar om att äga ett hem på varm plats plats. Rascoff sa att det är en stor fastigheter missförstånd.

"När du vet om en uppåtgående, varm kvarter, det har redan hänt," sade han.

6. Hur platsen en uppåtgående närområde innan det är populära

Ett ord: Starbucks.

Rascoff studerade hem inom en kvarts mil från Starbucks, och hans forskning avslöjade bostäder nära en Starbucks uppskattat på 96 procent över en period på 17 år, medan andra bostäder rikstäckande uppskattat på endast 65 procent.

7. när det gäller andrahandsvärde, är det bättre att renovera köket eller badrummet?

Badrum. Köpare har distinkt smak och kan inte som din dyra omforma med granit bänkskivor och en dekorativ backsplash.

"Spendera bara lite pengar sprucing upp hem, förbättra badrum, och du får en mycket bättre avkastning," Rascoff sade.

8. om jag renovera källaren, kommer det att öka min hem värde?

Nej. Slösa inte pengar att renovera källaren. Om du kan lägga till en berättelse i stället.

"Ett annat misstag renoverar en källare," sade Rascoff. "Folk tror oftast att renovera en källare är en stor investering. Problemet är köpare har distinkt smak. Vissa människor vill ha ett träningsrum i källaren, vissa personer vill ha en barnens lekrum, vissa personer vill ha en teater. Och vad du lagt ned på att källaren är kanske inte rätt beslut.

9. street namn fråga

Ett hus på Elm domstolen kommer att sälja för mer än ett hus på Elm Street.

Om du bor på en "domstol," "långt" eller "lane," kan ditt hem värderas runt 2 till 3 procent mer än en hem på en "boulevard" eller en "gata".

10. det finns pengar i siffrorna

Bo från numret 666 och nummer fyra.

666 är otur i amerikanska numerologi och kan minska värdet av ditt hem med 2 till 3 procent.

How to transfer from SFU Beedie to Ivey?

I'm in grade 12 and IF I get into Beedie, is it possible to transfer to Ivey? I'd really like to do their dual bba and law degree. I'm not quite sure if the credits will transfer. However, I want to do my MBA at an Ivey League school in the states, and I hear that Ivey has a better reputation than Beedie does. 

Can anyone from Ivey give me some insight on how to transfer and get into Ivey's business and law faculty? To do the dual degree, I need to get accepted into both faculties. What average would I need to obtain? I'm also confused about what year I can transfer. Preferably, I'd like to transfer after my first year at SFU beedie.

The Euclid competition is quickly coming up, and I'd really like to do well in the competition, mainly for bragging rights. The problem is though, I finished most of the old euclid questions that I could do in preparation for the Senior Mathematics Contest. The only questions I have left are the ones I had no idea how to do.

What resources can I look into to perhaps learn more material so I can do these harder questions? I guess I could go question by question and look up how it should be done, but it doesn't seem like an efficient method of studying.

Would switching schools from grade 11 to grade 12 affect my chances at Ivey/Queens?

2 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hi, I am currently in the eleventh grade and I really want to go go back to my old school for grade 12. However, I would not make the change if this affected my chances for university acceptances. I have a few questions pertaining to the issue. 

1.) Would Ivey or Queens see my transfer from grade 11 to 12 and find me unfit for the program and see that I am not committed? 
2.)I have personally started the Relay For Life event at my new school and its a huge event celebrating life and the end to cancer. I got the idea myself from being a part of it in grade 10 at my first high school. Would I still be able to put that on my essays if I was back at my old school?

Sorry if it's a bit confusing. I just think my old school was a better fit for my academically and socially. Thanks!
