I really only know for Ivey because that's what I applied to. You need to have around a 90 average (if lower than 90 you need amazing ECs). Ya you do need a lot of ECs and work experience helps too. Ivey considers your application to be half ECs and half marks, Queens really values them as well. I have heard of kids with lower averages but with great ECs getting in over kids with mid 90s averages and average ECs. so get to work on those ECs :)

To be safe, you need at least +92 avg, below that is border line.
And if u can try to do some ecs or do some extra volunteer work during summer or after school, it can really help.
If ur gonna try to get by with NO ecs, than u will need a low to mid nineties avg

90+ average for sure, many good quality EC's that show leadership, and maybe a job could help. And rack up references so be nice to teachers and supervisors ;)

what business school in Canada would be the most beneficial if I wanted to work overseas, maybe in the UK or something of that sort? I'm talking banking, maybe trade or some other financial job.

+1 Desautels has an international reputation just because of McGill which is a bonus.

I'm leaning more towards Ivey because chances of going to the UK right away are slim, not impossible, but not as common.

Ivey has one of the most, if not THE most, banking placements for students. Generally what happens is once you graduate you have a job waiting for you or search for a job in banking and work there for a year or two. With that experience you have a higher chance of acquiring a job overseas, especially if Ivey helped you get a job at major firms (i.e. Goldman, Mackenzie,J.P Morgan) in New York or Canada.
