Haha, but in all seriousness. The 2+2 program here is great..I'm in Social Sciences right now and im taking really interesting courses along with it...its such a breeze cause I have so many electives. My average is around 85% right now and I shouldn't have trouble getting into 3rd year :P if any of you have any questions lemme know

I'm in political science, a program in the social science faculty, by far the best program I think because you only have 1 compulsory course and 4 electives. Each program has different requirements.

I think psych is a pretty good program, considering you like math. Econ is good prep for Ivey if youre interested.

You choose subjects all over the place and its your job to choose the right courses for your required module.

Oh my bad, i forgot to mention business 1220. I've actually enjoyed the course. Most AEOs take the course and its good to take cause it introduces you to the case method that Ivey uses. Its not mandatory though.
