U of T engineering
Do I really need a laptop for engineering? Is it really beneficial? I have the worst luck, my laptop completely stopped working today (right when i need it most to finish assignments Dx ). Should i think about getting it fixed or getting a new one by September or could i get through first year without one?
How do university degrees work?
I'm a bit confused on how University degrees and majors work. I hear often about people who do a "double degree" or a "major in this and a minor in that". Can someone explain the differences between a double degree and a minor? Aren't they essentially the same thing?

Also, how would you apply for a minor or a double degree?
made a mistake
I accepted a university back in march then recently accepted another on ouac. Now I realized the university I accepted originally is better for choice for me. But now that offer is not there anymore on my ouac. I made a huge mistake and regret my decision. What do I do?
Schulich BBA vs. Laurier BBA/BSc vs. Western BMOS
Hey yall,

I got accepted to all the programs mentioned above and I'm really torn on what to choose. Schulich obviously has the reputation, but does reputation really matter for an undergrad program? With Laurier I got into the Business/Computer Science double degree (not waterloo, just at laurier) with guaranteed co op and its five years. As someone who's not really passionate about computer science, is it really worth doing a Computer Science degree and stay at uni for an extra year? I love the campus and environment at Western and theres a better chance to get into ivey from western, but is it worth going to Bmos with no guarantee of actually getting into Ivey?

What are your thoughts?

Any feedback or information about the programs is appreciated. 
Business Trends 2015
We are halfway through the year 2015 but some business trends are still unseen. Let us take the time and review what business strategies have already been implemented and what things are still needed to change. This way, our team of marketers in Axis Capital Group ( http://acg-funding.com ), a company lending financial assistance to small business owners in Nebraska and has now expanded to Singapore and Jakarta, Indonesia have based our succession of campaigns. You who are still starting with your own business can also create better strategies in the future.

1. Use Social Media Networks for Content Distribution

LinkedIn and other social networks has been fast developing and growing this decade. This year, LinkedIn is still expected to rise as one medium to distribute contents about your business.


As we all know, social media networks are good places for content distribution, but LinkedIn has several features that make the platform more versatile than Facebook, Twitter, and others for this purpose. If you still don’t have any LinkedIn account, you should start making one now to take full advantage of its features for your business.


2. Improve Social Media Integration

A study in Jakarta, Indonesia shows that one way people recognize brands is because of its frequency to be mentioned in social media. LinkedIn is not enough to boost your company, especially when you are still starting in the industry. As the virtual world is fast evolving, so should you. Adding social sharing options to websites, blogs and email messages can greatly increase than range and effectiveness of the campaign. Even when you don’t have any marketing team, you can make a social media account under the name of your company but make sure not to flood your accounts with irrelevant information or people may think of your as scam.


3. Preparing for New Technologies

Being in the business, you should review what’s new in your specific field. If there are new technologies you should invest into, you should think about it deeply. You would not want to make a bad impression to your potential customers if they happen to visit your office and find outdated equipment. Having advanced technology in your office will not only benefit your image but your productivity as well since your tasks will be easier and more convenient with new systems and data base integrated in advanced machineries and equipment.


By the end of 2015, a lot of people should be using wearable technology devices. Though it's hard to say how difficult it will be to market on wearable, this is something that marketers should keep an eye on.

Is it cheaper to live in-campus residence or off-campus in York University? (Keele Campus)
I'm an international student with no family or friends in Canada. I want to attend York University and I've been granted an offer of admission. 

I have to save as much as I can in my first year at York University and I wonder if it's better to look for a place off-campus because at York I have to pay 50% of my room & board and meal plan fees and it would be better if I have a place where I can pay rent monthly. THE THING IS: I do not have enough money to pay for a rent contract or something. I would figure it out to pay monthly a rent fee. Do you know anything guys? 

Western Med Sci is no different from any other life sci program (for sending ppl to medicine)
27% of the Med Sci students do not go to medical school. Its 11%. 27% of 274 ppl = 74 people. 74/700 x 100% = 11%. This is similar in all other schools including U of T, UBC, McGill, McMaster and so on. (For example U of T sends about 100 ppl to med school from life sci so that's about 6%. Not much of a difference from the med sci program in terms of percentages.  So in conclusion Mac Health Sci is Canada's only premed program. So far I still think we have to say Western Med Sci trails Mac Health Sci but the gap between the two are large + Western med sci sends slightly more people to medicine than other life sci programs but the difference is not noticeable. I'm going to Western Med Sci btw.
CARLETON UNIVERSITY 2015 ADMISSION

please has anyone heard from Carleton regarding your admission? I'm an international student and applied for the graduate architecture program but I'm yet to receive a decision.

Really depressed. Accepted my offer of Kinesiology at York University but I can't afford my first year
Hi guys, I live in Venezuela and I don't have family nor close friends in Canada. I applied to York University this year and I've been admitted to the Kinesiology program to start this Fall. Everything went out pretty well but I didn't get any scholarship and in my country we are facing an economical crisis that got worse lately and now it is almost impossible to change our currency in dollars and either way it's an awful lot of money to afford at least my first year at York University. I'll need to pay residence and a meal plan. 

DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ANY ALTERNATIVE SCHOLARSHIPS? Do you think if I manage to pay at least for the fees of this first semester I could work throughout the whole fall and save some money to pay the fees for Winter? Is there really anything I can do once I arrive in Canada to help myself pay? 

I have work experience in my country, I'm currently working as an English teacher in my country and I also worked in a travel agency for a time. If there's anything you advice me to do please let me know. 

Thanks a lot!

HELP UBC Science admission
Grade 11 marks, does it actually matter for UBC science, later on specializing into biology? 
I am getting such a bad mark. My top 4 is biology, precalculus 12, chemistry 11, english 11 and im doing well in socials 11 as well. I go to school in BC. I am getting crappy marks in physics, like 60 70 something. Should I retake physics 11 or is it useless? Please be honest and helpful! 

Biology 11 92 
Precalc 12 87-88
chemistry 11 86-87
english 11 88
socials 11 90s 

The marks are not finalized as I am not finished the school year yet.
I Have not studied for the entire year and my marks are SHIT and now im so worried. Is it for sure UBC doesn't look at grade 11? I will be retaking my math 12 online as well as taking chem 12 online. Is UBC ok with online courses? Also, my volunteer is pretty good so I think my personal profile will be ok. In grade 12 I am pretty sure I can get like 92-93. Do you think I will be able to get into UBC science biology with a starting point like this? I will NOT be taking physics 12.
Please help!
CAN UBC REVOKE ME??
I'm very paranoid... my chem mark  has dropped from a 77% as my midterm mark to a 66%. It's a class that is not a pre-req, but is getting counted towards my top 4. However, as long as i don't mess up big time on the english provincial, I've some what calculated that despite my low mark, I'd only drop 2-3% from my overall average.

I got into Arts, and all my other classes are over 90% if that helps.
Tips for Calculus and Vectors exam?
Hello guys,

So yeah, I will be heading to Queen's Commerce soon and I am so far meeting the conditions on my offer, except for Calculus, which I dropped an 80 to a 76 (Damn vectors). Luckily, We have an assignment plus another test on 4 sections, 9.1-9.4 coming up, which I plan to ace. However, the moment of truth thing is the exam. I hope to bring my mark up to a 77 or a 78 with the assignment and test and get a 89 or 90 on the exam.

Do you guys who do 90+ in Math exams, which I plan to do, have any tips. I will start studying this weekend and plan to look over old notes, redo chapter reviews (and sections if I was weak in them), focus on my weaknesses as well as redoing old tests. Do you guys have any tips to get a solid 90 on the Calc exam?

NEED ADVICE QUICK ! ENGINEERING Waterloo or McMaster
Hi all,

If anyone can kindly advise or provide details and input on a university that I should choose.

I have been accepted into Electrical engineering at Waterloo and Engineering COOP at McMaster and I am wondering which one to accept. 

I am looking to have a fun life for my university years and I am also hoping that I could end up finding a job at a big tech company. I value both my education and my time spent as a student. 

Is Waterloo really only studying/work? Would going there have any moments of being just as fun as MacMaster?


 

HELP A BROTHER OUT
How many people have been wait listed for Sauder? is it harder to get into than sciences at UBC?
WTF IS A DUAL DEGREE?
Could someone please explain to me all the details?
Specifically at Western with its Ivey Program.
What are the prerequisites?
Waitlisted for Sauder
Hi !

I have been already admitted into UBCO into sciences, however i have been wait listed for my first choice which was Sauder. Although I want to pursue sciences, my parents pressured me into applying for business at the UBCV campus because that is what they want me to go into and I was still confused as to what my passion truly was at the time. My plan was to get into Sauder and then transfer if I wasn't passionate about what I was studying. I have been wait listed what are my chances of getting in? and if i do get in is it possible to transfer from Sauder to Sciences. OR  should i just go the UBCO sciences and try transferring to the vancouver campus? and finally was sciences at UBCV easier to get into than Sauder? Any advice would be priceless


Thank-you for all your help

Please help . General Admission questions
Hi
i am an indian student and i have applied to york. I uploaded my 10th grade transcript. I am yet to send my documents. Also i cant contact them through email(i couldnt find one thought !). Firstly, do i need to send them my 11th grade transcripts as well ? and the midterm transcripts also ?
I have applied to the computer science program at york. I had a 9.2 gpa on a scale of 10 in 10th grade (that is approximately 90% on a scale of 100%). My problem is that my school is pretty strict and i could only score 55% in 11th and in my mid terms i could score 57% . My finals are yet to happen in march. So , my question is that
1. Do they give conditional acceptances ?
2. Do i have a chance to get into york if i get an 80% or above in my finals ?
3. Will i be eligible for scholarship ? (because my results will be out in the month of may)

Kindly answer asap.
