I apologize in advance if I'm late or don't get to your question. Everything posted here are from my own personal experience and opinion.

Laurier BBA Acceptances?

Anonymous
7 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Hey, so awhile back I got an email from Laurier explaining that acceptances will go out in 3 phases, where the second phase happens in march/april based on a combination of Gr11/12 marks. I was wondering if its the top 6 marks out of the gr11/12 marks, even if let's say I have 2 maths in my top mark, will they count both or just one? Sorry if this is confusing to understand, lol

1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens  (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!

Hey guys :)

We are so close to applying.. and I saw similar threads to this over the past couple years and thought why not do it again?
So if you're interested in going into an engineering program...

1. What discipline(s) are you considering?
2. What schools are you considering? (in order if you'd like) 
3. What do you think your top 6 average will be?

Additionally, if you are in university right now for engineering and see this, please post about where you go, your program, the student life, and anything else you'd like to share, as well as what your average was when you were accepted! That will be greatly appreciated :)

1. Biomedical or Chemical
2. Waterloo, McGill, Queen's, McMaster
3. aiming for around a 95%, in the mid 94%'s right now!

Look forward to hearing from all you other engineering hopefuls! :)

For example if a university wanted 4 courses from you for a specific program does it mean that the uni will calculate the average of your top 4 approved courses?

Will IB economics prepare me?

So I'm inclined to major in economics in UofT and like the title says, will IB economics HL prepare me well for the upcoming courses such as ECO100 or so? Ive been hearing alot from other IB eco students that they found their eco course relatively easy at university. However, a lot of people say that economics at UofT is very hard and that concerns me

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

Anonymous
1 reply • Last reply: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC by Nathan Lu
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 :)

What commerce undergrad program is best?

0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC
I'm transferring into third year. I took first year Social Sciences at UVIC and had a 3.7 GPA there, and this year I took 2nd year commerce at UNBC and had a GPA of 4.0 in the first semester. I already have gotten early admission acceptance into U of A and U of T Missauga for Commerce. I also got early admittance into SFU but its for Economics cause I'm missing some pre-requisite courses for third year commerce. Essentially if I chose SFU I'd have to take the business courses I'm missing and apply for internal program transfer. I also applied to Mcgill and UBC, but my application hasn't been review yet for those two. I live in Prince George, so Northern BC, and I have family in Vancouver so the most convenient place would be UBC for sure. I was wondering though which program is the best for Commerce? It is impossible to transfer into Rotman Commerce at U of T which is part of the main St. Georges campus, but from what I've researched U of T Mississauga provides the same education, even shares some of the same profs and still earns you a U of T degree. Still just looking for outside opinions.

McMaster Application - Problems with MAC ID?

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC
I sent in my McMaster application a while back... but I forgot to write down my MAC ID, so I tried the "forgot MAC ID" option. However, using the information given by the applications information email, it kept returning authentication failed... so I tried to "activate MAC ID" again. Logging in with this newly activated username/password, I can't access the student center, I don't have the permissions. 
.. Do you think my application got deleted? I guess I'll call them tomorrow... Has this happened to anyone else?
