Business programs I can get in with a 80-85 percent average since I can't pull off a 90?

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Idk what I'm doing wrong with my studying but I can't get high marks in math,  maybe i should study 2-3 days ahead instead of the day before. I'm not sure.
Over the next two weeks I have 10 tests to do, and I can't pull off a 94 average for top business schools such as Schulich, Queens, Ivey and Rotman. Maybe if i studied ahead i might but its hard to change study habits.
I know York BAS, Ryerson Bcomm or BBA ( forgot) is easier to get in. Can you guys recommend me other programs that are in Toronto?

If you can't even put in work to get higher grades, how do you expect to succeed in university? Life is all about change. You project managers and uni professors won't extend due dates for you just because you couldn't do the work ahead of time and fell behind. Learn to do work in advance and not procrastinate. You might be managing to scrape by now, but there are things that you just can't do last minute. Of course your grades are only in the 80's if you won't even take the effort to improve your study habits.

No offence but do you really think going to a crappy business school is going to help you in the future? You think an employer wants to hire a Ryerson or York business graduate over someone who attended one of the top tier schools? Do you think you'll get the same opportunities at these lower business schools?

So, basically high school math is hard for you so you're prepared to spend tens of thousands of dollars for a crappy business degree. You don't even care about the consequences that follow afterward. You just need to get into university right now because that's the kool aid being fed to you. 

Improve your grades. Retake math. Do it in private school. Literally you sound like a quitter and quitters don't survive in this world. If you can't hack it in high school to carve a better future for yourself then I don't see how you'll do it in university.

You don't even need a 90 to get into some good business schools - UTSC Management coop, Waterloo AFM (though this is out if you suck at math), Brock Accounting coop, Rotman, Queen's, Laurier.

I can't pull off a 94 average for top business schools such as Schulich, Queens, Ivey and Rotman.

You know how to use google and do some simple research? Queen's cutoff is 87%. Rotman is high 80s. Schulich is 91-92%. Basically, all numbers below 94%.

C'mon fam, all you need for business is English and two maths. The rest are bullsh*t courses. If you have low 90s, you can get into many programs albeit if you have decent ECs. If you can't get a 90, then how can I take science courses and still have a 91 average? You tell me

well you don't go to Mary Ward.
Come to Mary Ward and I promise that 91 average will slip 5-10%

Doubt it, Toronto high schools are notorious for grade inflation. My average would probably increase if I went there.

my school isn't just a toronto school.
We learn differently than others, its extremely similar to University. Search it up.
Our curriculum is harder too, for Math and the Sciences.
Many people who transferred out of Mary Ward to a normal school got 90s easily.

Practice, do homework, put some effort into math instead of cramming the night before because I promise it won't help. Ryerson isn't the best program, but it's still pretty decent. Aim for that one if you can't raise your marks. 
Now, private school can also offer you the marks you want and get you into a much better school. You should consider that if your marks continue to slip. You can still get into a top school like Ivey even with a private school mark.

That's no problem. Night school! Or if you're really confident about your other marks, go for private school and then get your money back with an entrance scholarship. Usually it's $1000 for an 80% average. Worked for me.

Honestly, why is everyone here trying to encourage the OP? This kid is just defending himself saying that he can't do it, that he goes to a hard high school, that he won't get into schools like Schulich and Ivey, that he can't afford private school, and so on. If I had this kind of mentality when I was 17/18 then I would just be another average joe living a mediocre life right now. In none of OP's posts am I hearing them ask - how can I do it? What can I do to get into a better program so that I would have a better future? How can I do better in my current high school?

Instead, all I'm reading about is this negativity and OP defending a high school. Nice try, but no high school especially one in the TDSB comes close to the workload and difficulty of a Canadian university, Plenty of people go to Mary Ward and get into good programs and schools. Don't make up excuses for your inabilities and faults. At least own it. 

To answer your question, I suppose you can settle for programs like UOIT, Trent, Guelph, Carleton, Lakehead, Windsor, Ryerson, Laurentian, etc. in Ontario.

I didn't mean Mary Ward has the same workload as university. I should have specified, I meant that its very similar as in the PROGRAM which is self directed.

Seriously? You don't need a 94 for Queens, Rotman, or Ivey. People are giving you legitimate advice and all I see is you making excuses for your poor work ethic. If you can't even bother to study 2-3 nights in advance for a HIGH SCHOOL math test you won't succeed in any upper tier business school. Its not your school causing the issue with math, its you. If you're not willing to put in the effort now what makes you think you'll put in the effort when it gets even harder?

Kids like this make up excuses and are extremely lazy. OP doesn't seem to understand that sometimes you have to work hard to achieve big things in life. If he can't be bothered to hustle in high school then he will never make it in the real world.
