The deadline is fast approaching and I am a weird situation. I got rejected from Mac Business with an 80.5 avrg (Mac has been my dream school), my current avrg with my final nightschool mark is an 81.5, and Ive improved in all my classes (besides physics not top 6 though.

Is there any way to be accepted in the summer? or at finals? My current options is going to Mac for Social sciences (economics), or Ryerson Bcomm, or Mac Bachelor in Tech. Staying back is not an option (parents). I just feel going to Mac for social sciences is a risk, and making it into commerce second year isnt a guarantee.

What yall think i Should do?

I would call McMaster Monday and see if you can still get in or anything.

If not, I'd choose Ryerson if business is what you want to do.

Agreed. Going the transfer route does entail a certain degree of risk.

At Western there are quite a few people in social sciences that "mirror" the BMOS program and apply for BMOS in their intent to register. If so many people do this at Western, I dont see why following the same technique at Mac won't work. If Mac is your dream school, and you're willing to work hard to get into it's BComm, then I'd say take the risk.

If all fails, you might end up with an economics degree, which isn't too shabby either.

You can also transfer from Ryerson into McMaster Bcomm for 2nd year. If that fails, you still get a bcom degree

This.
Personally, I wouldn't take the risk associated with transferring within Mac. I know you said it's your dream school but an important thing to think about is the program itself. Not sure if you care but I absolutely fell in love with Western but eventually chose not to go there because the program wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I think that you'll grow to love whatever school you go to and I'm really happy with my decision. At the end of the day, yeah university is an experience but it's also important to take the education and degree into account. I think a BComm has more advantage to it than a social sciences degree (But that's just my opinion). So if I were you, I'd go to Ryerson (plus, downtown Toronto's pretty amazing) and then try to transfer to Mac. It's definitely doable from both methods but I think going to Ryerson at least gives you a safety net that you can fall back into just in case.

Yeah, trust me I know how you feel, I really wanted to go to Western. But just ask yourself if giving up the degree is worth going to Mac. :p
Anyways, good luck, I know how hard it is.
