Criminology in Toronto.

A photo of melissa93 melissa93
So I have applied to both Ryerson and University of Toronto for Criminology and Criminal Justice. Just wondering how good thier programs are, and how they could compare to other universities that offer these programs. Also the average to get into these two programs, I have heard alot of different numbers. I also have already gotten accepted into Carleton for Crim on conditional offer.

I applied for Criminology at U of T as well and I read on the website that the average acceptance for the program was around 84%

I also have a friend who was accepted to the program and she had an 88% average at the end of grade 12. Hope that helps a little bit!

Oh, and it's also important to focus on getting a good mark in English in order to be accepted to those programs.

OP, if you want to guarantee yourself an offer from UofT, DO NOT list "Criminology" as the program you are applying because for that program, they expect a higher high school average from you. Choose something easier like "Sociology" or "Books and Media" so you can have a higher chance of getting in. I know because that was what I did when I applied ;P
Trust me, you don't get to choose your major until you're in 2nd year. There are a lot of people in arts sci who ended up in another major, different from the one they chose when they applied to UofT in high school.

Anyway, once you get into UofT, just work as hard as you can to meet the requirement for Criminology(which I believe is 2.7 GPA= 70%+ average), because first year's CGPA determines what major you can go into in 2nd year.
