I applied! I don't have much info on the program, but i've heard that undergrad psych programs are pretty similar for all Ontario schools.

I really like the Psych program at Laurier, in terms of what you want to do with the psych degree, there are two "streams" you can go into, BA comprehensive or BA Research specialist. The only main difference between the two is that BA comp is more of a general psych degree, while BA RSpecialist is focussed more on conducting research (so if you're thinking of persuing a masters or PhD).

The courses for psychology between schools are all pretty much the same, and if Laurier doesn't offer the course you want, UWaterloo allows cross-registration, so you can just take UW courses.

I applied and I think you can only apply to the comprehensive one for undergrad, right? Since I don't think I saw the Research specialist on OUAC?
