UBC Okanaga vs. SFU

A photo of lauren4567 lauren4567
AH!

I got into SFU for science with an entrance scholarship and I had abandoned all hopes of getting into UBC but today I got an offer for Okanagan (science too) because I guess it's easier to get into there but now I don't know what to do!
I am not going to live to Okanagan valley but should I call them and ask them if... I don't know... I DON'T KNOW AH!!


Do you think it's worth it or should I just accept SFU's offer?

Just go with SFU! It's a good school, and I think it's better than UBC Okanagan. If you're unhappy, try to transfer after first year.

My average for sciences sucks because of math. So it's like 85% :( but for arts it's 88% so I think I could make it into arts... or not really...

Yeah I think I will go to SFU
I am just really pissed and confused because UBC has some of my marks wrong for some reason and it's just a mess, a mess.

88 is good for arts but if its your second choice its cutting it a bit close. Did you write a supp btw?

Back to your question, I would go to sfu anyday over UBCO, IMO UBCO is just a glorified community college.
