Hey guys,
I got accepted into University of Guelph for Biological Science. They offered me a $2000 scholarship, so I waspretty excited about that.
I'm wondering how first year in this program is like. I haven't really considered going there until now. I had my mind set on Waterloo from thebeginning, but I also want to maintain a high uni average to get into Optometry School, and I heard Waterloo was difficult.
Any advice would be great. :)

Pretty sure it'll be easier to maintain a much higher GPA at Guelph than at Waterloo.

That doesn't necessarily mean that the Science program at Guelph is not as good as Waterloo's, right? I think Life Sciences/Sciences at Guelph are better known than Waterloo's - that's why their admission cutoff is so high this year.
What school do you plan on going to? :) I see you got into Waterloo : )

You're right, it doesn't mean Waterloo is any better than Guelph.
Both programs are going to be similar, but just from what I've gathered, Waterloo isn't as easy as we may think.

Haha, yeah I did get in to Waterloo, but I don't think I'll be going.
Waterloo is only really well known for Engineering & Math - haven't heard much about Sciences.
I'm looking at either U of T or U of A right now.
