Canadian Securities Course before university?

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

Within the next week or two, UW is going to be making it's first round of acceptances for the math department. Discuss and share averages here if you're one of the students shooting for a round one acceptance into a math department program!

Good luck!

Western BMOS (Ivey question) or Honours Commerce at University of Ottawa?

0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC
My marks in my first semester of grade 12 dropped so I couldn't apply to for an aeo status at Ivey, but I really want to go there. I got into the honours commerce program at university of Ottawa with a scholarship, but I was wondering what are my chances of getting in Ivey if I attend Western? 
I know BMOS isn't that great of a program, so is it worth the gamble to choose it over Ottawa (especially if I don't get into Ivey)? 
Can anyone tell me how successful the program itself is?

Thank you!

Do Universities look at the difficulty of the course?

Anonymous
2 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC by yWE TALK
So I'm currently a Grade 12 student, and I was just wondering about how Universities look at courses. I took Grade 12 Physics and Grade 12 chemistry.My average is definitely not as high as it could have been if I had taken only business courses. It is currently sitting at around 89% and will be around 90 to 91% for my top six.

 I have applied to business programs, and am wondering at how they screen the averages for applicants. Do universities look at the difficulty of the course (like physics compared to business leadership) and your mark, or do they just look at your top 6 average?


***Was debating between engineering and business, which is why I took science course (yes, i do not wish to pursue engineering anymore)

Hey guys! Ok well, I haven't completed grade 9 yet but I was wondering if universities would count my grade 9 marks. My average percentage is 95% so far, but I'm scared that won't be enough for UBC -- Science BSC.

Thanks in advance!

is the University of Waterloo or the University of Alberta better for Engineering?

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC
Hi everyone,

I am currently in grade 12 and was accepted to both universities of Waterloo and Alberta for engineering however I couldn't decide which is better... I am currently accepted as general engineering in Ualberta and environmental engineering in UWaterloo. I want to look for a balance between student life and academics with a nice environment of a community and I highly value co-op programs as well. I don't want engineering to be stressful and torturous (although, lets admit it, it kinda will be) and i want to remember the great memories I would have at University.  

I know that they all have their flaws and advantages but are there any experienced engineering graduates, current engineering undergraduates or anyone who can give a bit of insight into both schools in regards to academics, ranking, social life, co-op, and maybe the best thing about both universities versus the worst for the two universities? which one would you guys pick and why? 

Also,Do you guys think that first year general will be more useful than going straight into a program? I'm not entirely sure if I will like environmental engineering.

Thanks in advance :)

Do I have a chance at getting into UBC Science?

3 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 04, 2015 UTC by Ashkan Akbari
Hi there, I applied for UBC Van General Science and I'm so worried about getting in! My grade 11 grades were as follows:

Physics 11: 89
Chem 11: 96
AP English 11: 95
French 11: 86
Precalc 11: 86
Social Studies 11: 97
(Those are my academic courses, I didn't count the electives)

Grade 12 marks:

Bio 12: 94
Chem 12: 89
Precal 12: 85
AP English: 98

That is my top 4. By the time I self report I'm hoping to go up a couple percent in Bio and possibly Chem because extra credit is available and teachers at my school will take off single tests u did badly on if the rest of your mark is consistently good to boost us for self reporting, but right now my average is 92%. As for my ECs, I listed being a team leader for a hospital volunteer program, being a lifeguard/instructor and swim coach, starting a business and online store to raise money for Science World and becoming a recognized donor, playing in the school band for 7 years and being a section leader, and being a part of the Future Science Leaders program at science world and conducting research with professors from UBC. Do you think I have a chance? I really am hoping to get my average up to 93ish. :(

University of Toronto/Rotman Commerce Acceptances?

Anonymous

Hi there,

I am a grade 12 student from BC (105D) and i was wondering if anyone here (im sure there is) got accepted to Rotman? Please list your average and the date you applied.

Also, could anyone chance me? I applied in mid February and have been waiting every since (my application status is under review). 

My top 4 courses are:

Pre calc 12 : 86% (got 94% on my second try, but unfortunately Rotman does not look at second attempts)

English 12 : 90%

History 12: 97%

Economics 12: 91%

Average: 91.0% (its on the low side.)

I would say that I had a pretty strong supplemental (various leadership activities). Since UT gives out admission offers to 105 applicants on a rolling basis, does any of you know how long does it take to receive an offer? 

Thanks in advance! (sorry its lengthy.)

Just letting you guys know that I emailed an admissions person at Uoft and they said that offers will be given out on a rolling basis. I don't think they've done this in previous years…so yeah. 

Do with this information what you will. Remember that this means that not all offers will come out on the same day. If someone gets in before you do, just keep checking your email every day!

Also, how's st mikes? Do students from st mike face some sort of discrimination because they belong to a 'party' school? Would the atmosphere pose some put pressure on students who aren't necessarily party-goers?
