Well, business program for average person

A photo of AsianFail93 AsianFail93
Well, hi everyone. I was wondering which biz programs would be decent (nothing too high up)
Marks (fully completed courses):
English - 78 (i know - horrible & even worse, it was summer school)
Data management - 90

Relevant courses(course not completed yet - estimated):
Advanced Functions - 87
Accounting - 85+
Calculus* - 87

Not so relevant
Computer Science - 90
Computer Engineering - 90
Chemistry* - 85+
Physics* - 85+

Not much going for me academically except for the school's rep (according to teachers at school). Doing volunteer work/ non paid employment at those Chinese Saturday schools. Part of robotics (irrelevant) and some random clubs.

SO, which business programs would be decent? Looked at AFM-PA and was very surprised when i found this forum the current mark requirement is quite high.

TIA.
note: * courses are 2nd semester

Asianfail93? Wow, why are Asians so hard on themselves? I think your marks are fine, trust me people at my school have lower marks than that and think they have a shot at Schulich or something.

With those marks you can still apply to Waterloo AFM-PA, Laurier?

Some other decent programs are McMaster Degroote, UTSC Management Co-op, Brock BAcc Co-op, Rotman(some think it's good, but I hate it)?

I think you'll have a good shot at Laurier BBA and Waterloo AFM. They are pretty good programs. My friend got into AFM-PA with a 88ish something.. just do amazing second semester so you can pull up your Top 6 average.

If it is at 88, you can even apply to Ivey? They took a lot of 88-89 avgs last year with mediocre EC's like yours.

Good luck!

I'd recommend Laurier. They take your top 6 courses - so your english wouldn't count against you. It has co-op, good student environment, and your marks are decent. You could also try applying for the DD program if youre interested, you're borderline right now - could get in with a few higher marks.

Well, this is a pretty refreshing contrast to all the boneheads who think they're going to be rainmakers at GS once they graduate from their semi-target undergrads, but I digress.

I'd say look at local schools.

Laurier includes prereqs when calculating your admission average- English, AF and one other 4U Math

Laurier BBA (if you dont get in, you get an alternate offer to Honours Economics, a decent program, can always transfer to BBA if you can get a high GPA, has co-op)
Brock BAcc (accounting, not a full business program)
Rotman
McMaster
UTSC

You have a shot at Queens Ivey and Schulich as well.
