I am currently a grade 12 student,  & I need some help and advice towards choosing a university! 

For Brock: How well is the business program WITHOUT coop? Is it possible to switch into it/transfer to it while in university? 

For Mcmaster: How well is the business program? Is there coop available? 

Which would be the better choice? Brock no coop, or Mac?

Will I make it to University of Toronto Mississauga For Computer Science?

Basically what the title says. I have a 79.3% average and by end of second semester i don't think i will go up considering chemistry is hard and so is english. However i feel confident about calc and vec so that might boost me up to a 80-81%. Anyways with my current average of 79.3% from first semester will utm accept me?

Acceptances? Engineering and Math

Anonymous
41 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Does anyone know when UW will start giving out acceptances? 

Engineering should be soon, but I have no clue on the math programs!

Also, if you wouldn't mind saying the program(s) you applied to, your top 6 average (using gr 11 marks when necessary), and when you submitted your AIF, that'd be great :)

Electrical Engineering and Math/FARM
avg: 96-97 (this might be off though because I took adv. func. in the summer)
AIF submitted late Jan/early Feb

EUCLID PREP

Anonymous

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.

For others:

Extremely stressed out and worried...

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 03, 2015 UTC
Hello everyone. I'm an OUAC 105D applicant, a Canadian citizen currently living abroad and studying in an accredited US-system high school, and I have applied to the following universities:

University of Toronto Mississauga (Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics)
University of Toronto St. George [Trinity College] (Life Sciences)
University of Toronto Scarborough (Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics)
York University (Kinesiolgy)
York University (Computer Science)
Ryerson University (Computer Science)
University of Waterloo (Life Sciences, Honours)
University of Western Ontario (Medical Sciences)

I applied around the end of December - early January to these universities, and I submitted all my documents to the universities on February 8th, except for Ryerson, which I completed late February, and University of Western Ontario(My high school transcript still didn't show up as received in my student centre). There are two things that are stressing me out right now, 

First, my marks:

Grade 9 GPA: 3.6
Grade 10 GPA: 3.3(I got a D+ in Mathematics in Grade 10, which is what worries me a lot.)
Grade 11 GPA: 4.0
Grade 12 GPA: 4.0(So far, this is my first semester GPA for grade 12)

Cumulative GPA: 3.7

SAT Scores:

SAT Reasoning Test (Took Twice):
1900( 760 Writing, 600 Mathematics, 540 Critical Reading)
1830( 610 Writing, 650 Mathematics, 570 Critical Reading)
Super score(The best combined scores): 1980/2400

SAT Subject Tests:
Mathematics Level 1: 730
Mathematics Level 2: 590
Ecological Biology: 780

The second thing that worries me is that I fear I may have been rejected since I haven't heard anything back from any of the universities yet. :(

Do you think I'll be accepted into any of these universities?
