what are the pros and cons of waterloo vs toronto pharmacy program?

also, i'm currently a high school student (going into g12) and i'm planning to pursue pharmacy. However, I'm not sure if i'll be competitive enough to make it. I currently have a 92% overall average in grade 11 (chem: 94%; bio: 93%; math: 89%). All academic courses; my school doesn't provide AP or IB courses. Would i be competitive enough to become a pharmacist in the future?

Waterloo offers co-op. Other than that, they are both pharmacy schools and thus have to meet strict guidelines that ensure all pharmacy schools are educating students to a high standard. Differences in the quality of education between the two schools would be minimal.

All I can tell you is that my grade 11 average was 90%. Having an average that high most likely means you are capable of doing well in grade 12 and in university; the question is, are you willing to put in the work required to do well? That's really only something time can tell, but don't be fooled into thinking that you have to be very intelligent to do well in university. You just need to put in the effort to do well.
