Sauder/MES & Science CSP - Ask Us Anything

15 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC by - -
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.

Laurier BBA Acceptances?

8 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC by Jonathan Orrett
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

Currently finishing first year @ DeGroote School of Business. Ask me anything!

26 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
I'm usually really busy due to school, but I will try and answer any DeGroote/Business/Application/Social/McMaster related questions based on my experience! I apologize in advance if I'm late or don't get to your question. Everything posted here are from my own personal experiences and it's my own opinion.  I personally feel that not a lot of DeGroote students uses this forum, and oftentimes we are being misrepresented. Therefore, I created this thread to clear things up and to provide advices from the actual experiences that I've been through. I'm not an official McMaster representative & do not affiliate with the McMaster admissions in anyway.

Hey guys! I just wanted to know anyone who applied to Ryerson's Media Production program. If so, what attracted you to the program? What other programs did you apply to? It would be cool to talk to people who could possibly be my new friends next year! We can stress about our nonacademic requirements and our interviews together! But I guess it's too early to be even thinking about that, yeah? :)

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?

So Who has received an offer from SFU already for Fall 2014? Whose green circle has finally turned into a check?

I'm still waiting on my application to Faculty of Applied Sciences and Faculty of Sciences.
With an IB grade of 31, I'm here biting my nails over the application website. I'm very tempted to email them, but I know it's still quite early for Fall 2014 admission offers, but I'm a worrier, and waiting is driving me up the wall!

3rd Year Brock BBA/BAcc Co-op student, ask me anything!

39 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 05, 2015 UTC by Anonymous

I'm basically always on here so figured might as well make one of these and help out any prospective students. 

- First 2 years spent as BBA Co-op student, secured first coop term through BBA
- Transferred into BAcc Co-op after 2 years
- Currently on co-op

You kinda get the best of both worlds since I have been in all (both) the programs offered at the Goodman School of Business!

And since I know these are gonna be popular Qs:

- Avg (both major and overall) ~80%
- ECs: Leadership position in a club, some entrepreneurial stuff, sports stuff
- Work XP: General accounting internship at no-name organization doing very basic stuff, manual labour

Since attending Brock, I have received interview requests from (in no particular order):
RBC x2, Canadian Tire Financial Services, Imperial Oil (Alberta), Ontario Securities Commission (CPA Approved), Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, Big 4 Audit (Toronto), Suncor (Alberta),, and CPP Investment Board.

Note: These were not all co-op positions, some were just summer internship interviews.

- Rejected from BAcc Co-op
- Accepted to BBA Co-op with 83.5% top 6

So feel free to ask me anything and I'll try to answer your Qs as best as I can!

*Even if nobody has posted in this topic for a while, feel free to do so, chances are I'm still lurking on here
