What difference does it make if you go to a less prestigious college instead of trin or vic? Is the only difference the prestige and the student activities? I'm only going to be living in res for first year anyway. I want to know if not doing res at trin or vic will put me at some sort of disadvantage.

Hi everyone, decided to try getting answers to my worries on this forum. I am currently a grade 12 student in Ontario and am going to be applying for universities soon. I am genuinely looking for answers to my concerns. I was looking at applying for,life sciences at both UTM and UTSG. I was also looking at Biomedical Science and nursing at Ryerson. Other options on my list were collaborative programs like nursing at georgebrown and Seneca. As a backup I wanted to try Biomedical Science at York as well with Medical Radiation Sciences at McMaster being my last choice. As you can see I need to narrow down my choices. I think my advanced functions mark might not be good, if I can't pull it up to the low 80s, it's possible I might get around 75 because even though I've been doing good on tests recently, my mark doesn't seem to budge .I was just wondering if I stand a chance at these places, especially for life sciences. If I can get my average to around an 83-85, will I be fine. Thanks to anyone who replys and sorry for this lengthy post,
Hi there! Last weekend, through OUAC, I've applied to kinesiology programs at a bunch of schools (namely Mac, UoT, Western, Guelph, York, Waterloo) and I've been doing my research on all of these programs, but can't seem to find any supplementary applications I might need to fill out. I know for Waterloo there's a student profile form thing... and same for Guelph, but that one's completely voluntary. ...Right? erkss
I'm just a little worried I'm not looking in the right places and possibly missing a bunch of applications I should have filled out! Is there anything I might be missing?
Can someone please distinguish the Law and Society program at York University and the Ethics, Law, and Society program at University of Toronto? What is similar/different? In your opinion, which is/seems better? Thank you!
PLEASE comment on the difficulty of the course compared to adv functions. Also if you are an okay math student also comment! I know lots of people doing this course who think it's a breeze but they are strong math students! I need to hear from someone who is an okay student.
So I think Ivey is too hard to get in, my chances are; studying economics or stg like that in Western or to skip Western(cause Ivey s not gonna happen) and prefer Brock's business studies(accounting I think) or SFU's business school??? what do you say
maybe you can suggest something else? guys please I wanna read some comments
(I care about the education reputation aand ofcourse the social life)
Hi, I'm currently a grade 12 student who will be applying to Western + AEO, the only reason I'll probably get AEO ( If I do ) is because they don't count math in your top 6 (Ivey) , otherwise my average will be around 85% because of math, which is good enough for BMOS.
Is the math in BMOS hard? I'm terrible, lol .. I don't want to take the risk and do something like geography and have a useless degree in case I mess up and don't make it into Ivey!
I'm great at business Ex. 99% Management (only one in my school), and 95% in Intl. Business, but in math I'm inn the low 60's : /
I'm currently in grade 11 and I took mostly science's , but I'm not doing that well in them. I went from getting high 80's to not even 70's.Even though I was planning on doing science in uni , I don't think that's going to happen anymore realistically.I also enjoyed business so I was wondering what business programs you would reccomend applying to and what pre reqs I would need.I can probably get high 80's in business programs (if its not math based it would be great) Thank you! (+Unis in Ontario)
I know if I study this field, it will be hard to get a job. What can I do as a high school student to get experience in this field? Also, after my 4 year degree, should I go into Law or a masters in International relations/development.
Hoping to go into math... I like partying but I would like to be in a community where you're not 'just a number'. I don't even know what I'm looking for anymore I'm so torn between the three. Any advice would be hugely appreciated from current/past students !!
I am currently a grade 11 student and I am planing on taking International Relations/Development after high school. I talked to my school counselor and she told me that for a BA program they accept everyone, just make sure your marks meet the requirments, so if I get all 70 percents will a university with that average marking let me in or would they take the higher other students first? She said if they have alot of students for a BA program, they just get more teachers, is this true? Also, I live in Nova Scotia, do they just look at your English and 4 other marks, so in total 5 marks?
So I am a grade 12 female student from British Columbia, with a current 88.5% average (will likely go up by 1 or 2 percent, and if I choose to aim for McGill, I will put even more effort in although I know I should always be trying my best, but I am just human haha). I know McGill is a bit of a reach for me, but I like a challenge. I am strongly interested in the field of Biochemistry (primarily) but some interests in certain minors such as immunology, genetics, and neurology, but the emphasis is on biochemistry. Thank you so much for you time and help!!!! I am reaching crunch time and am having real difficulty making these decisions, seeing I can only apply to a limited number :)
The most important things I look for in a university are.... (Sorry for the long list, not everything on it is essential, they are just nice things to have) . - Overall friendliness (one of the most important things) and a little bit of a party life (I am not a party animal, but I would like the option) - NOT A COMMUTER CAMPUS - On campus Residence - No extreme competition between students - Reputation (I am not overly concerned though, it will not make or break my decision) - no reputation of grade curving preferably - Strong science programs - Good research and Co-op opportunities - A liberal/artsy/diverse environment, preferably with at least a little bit of a nightlife scene - BONUS****** non-competitive recreational dance classes with a variety of styles. Triple gold stars for you.
Here are the universities I had in mind but if you have ideas from off the list i would LOVE to hear them :)
University of Victoria University of Ottawa McGill Waterloo Queen's University of Northern British Columbia McMaster Western Ontario Guelph Dalhousie
Sorry for the information overload!!! :( Please do not dismiss me, I am just simply trying to make progress in my applications.
