Hi everyone!

So I this is a pretty stressful time for a lot of you, who are applying to business schools across Ontario, and just wanted to give back as this site helped me while I was choosing which school to go to. I currently go to Schulich, so feel free to ask questions about the student life, admission grades, extracurriculars, possible chances, and things like that! Good luck :)

chance me for general sciences and computer sciences

Anonymous
0 replies • Posted: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC
How are my chances for getting into the general sciences and Computer Science program at UBC-Vancouver? These are my completed grade 12 semester 1 courses, with their grades.  

 Pre-Calc 12: 95% 
 Physics 12: 99% 
Chemistry 12: 99% 

 I have english 12 this semester, and as it is my weakest course, I strive to attain a good mark in the course. Anyway, here is my english 11 mark, because from my understand UBC will use my Eng 11 mark.  

English 11: 87% 

  If I were to get accepted, what mark should I aim in English 12, this semester?

ENG4U Online Course?

Anonymous
4 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Would taking an ENG4U Online course during the school year be harder than taking an in-class ENG4U course? 

I got a teacher who rarely gives marks higher than 75. Last year I got 93 in English, and now I'm struggling to maintain an 80, yet I need at least a high 80. I was wondering if I should drop out and switch to an online English 12 course, one month into the semester. Would that be possible? And would it be worth it?

Brock BAcc Co-op?

Anonymous
1 reply • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
How good is this program? I applied and I got accepted last week, and tbh I only applied so I would fill out the 3 programs for the application. But after I got accepted, I've been leaning more towards this program, as it seems that you can get your CPA designation quicker (I believe, correct me if i'm wrong), and I also got into the co-op program so I would be able to gain some work experience while studying! The co-op is also guaranteed, as compared to the other schools I've applied to which aren't (Laurier)

With that being said, is this a good program to go into if I want to pursue my CPA designation? 

I applied to Laurier and Schulich, where Laurier's co-op isn't guaranteed and Schulich has no co-op at all, and you have to find your own internships

Carleton University, Brock University or Mcmaster?

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***

**** ANOTHER THING THAT IM TRYING TO FIND OUT ABOUT BUT I CANT SEEM TO IS THE DINING SERVICES AT THESE UNIVERSITIES, HOW IS THE FOOD SOMEONE TELL ME PLEASE.***

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!!

Official Q&A with Ivey Admissions and Recruiting

1877 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by Anonymous
Welcome to this thread where you can ask me anything about the HBA Program and the student experience for all years at Western and Ivey.
 
To provide you with some background, I recently graduated from the Honors Business Adminstration Program (HBA) this past year and currently working with the school as the HBA Recruiting Associate. I work closely with most areas of the school, including the admissions committee, career management and faculty.
 
Throughout my years at Western and Ivey I have been involved in a wide variety of activities, most of my time was consumed with residence life and student government; although I have dabbled in a number of club executive positions, intramural activities and a number of different student jobs on campus.

This would be a great forum to dispel some rumours about the program and clear up some of the myths about Ivey. I look forward to our discussions.

Entrance Scholarships (Is it possible to receive a higher amount with final marks?)

Anonymous
4 replies • Last reply: 7:03AM March 01, 2015 UTC by eggopop
So I received an offer of admission awhile back in early January. With that, I was offered a scholarship. Is it possible to receive a higher amount with my final marks? I was accepted based on my grade 11 marks so is it possible for me to increase the scholarship money? I know that my marks are better this year. They're in the low 90s, and I predict that they'll stay that way till 2nd semester finals. BTW i received scholarships for 1,000 per year. Is it possible to increase it to 3,000 per year?

Queen's Subsequent Offers of Admission

Anonymous

Hi all,

Just wondering how submitting my PSE after the Feb. 15 deadline (my grandmother passed away after a long haul with cancer 4 days prior to the deadline) is going to effect my chances of getting into Queens. As of right now, I have an 80 average (applying into the Arts), but am redoing English (grandmother was very ill and missed my summative, so i dropped from 85, to 75) to get a higher mark, as well as 3 other courses which i intend to get 90's in. What would the process be like; would the admissions committee wait until they received my second semester mid-terms to make a decision, or would they reject me for not meeting the Eng. cut off range immediately

My marks as of right now are:
English: 75%
Canadian History: 88%
Art: 88%
Co-op: 92%
Business: 75%
Law: 73%
Politics: 82%

The courses I'm doing now:

English: going to go ape crap and get 90+
Canadian Fam.: will most likely have a 94 at midterm
Classics: 96 at midterm
Business Management: 90 at midterm

Really stressing out here, so thanks in advance for you help

Cheers
