UBC 2015
Earlier in the year ubc vancouver was unable to offer me admission since my first semester grades weren't the best but my second semester grades were significantly better. thankfully since they check final grades at the end of July I guess they revoked a number of people. They emailed me yesterday saying how they thought my final grades were good and asked me if I still wanted admission. The thing is I'm really conflicted right now because for half a year I thought I'd be going to SFU. Now I don't know what I should do. Any advice?
Psychology in high school - take or not?

I am going into grade 12 next year in BC. Other than math and sciences, I have space for one elective. I couldn't get into Law or Accounting because of timetable conflicts and have to take Peer Tutoring as an alternative. But I can switch to something else if it fits.  I was wondering if Psychology 11 or 12 is worth taking? Will it be helpful if I am going on to Pharmacy after completing science prerequisites? Any experiences and is it a lot of work? 

Thank you. 
UBC Admission acceptance for Commerce
I desperately need help, I am going into grade 12 in the fall, and I am really stressed about not getting into the university i wanted which is University of British columbia, my average in grade 11 is around 80%, not too good for UBC. I took grade 12 precal in grade 11 hoping to lighten up the my courses in grade 12, but in the end it didn't go so well, and I ended up receiving a 68%, so I decided to take summer school, and I got 88% which is ok. But here is the problem, UBC acceptance average for commerce is around 92%, and I heard that they drop some percentage off of your summer school mark?  my question is that should I take Pre cal again in grade 12 or no? My extra curriculum and my Personal profile is good, I have 2 jobs, involved in leadership clubs,  volunteer a lot, outside sports. I'm just worried about the mark, and also the mark that I'll be getting in grade 12. Please help. Thanks
ILC Advice
I'll make this as short as possible, I didn't plan ahead and now I'm fcking fcked for grade 12 lol.

I haven't taken any grade 12 courses, so I will only have a top 4 (or 5 including night school) to hand in after sem 1. The problem is that I also need to take Chem 11 during grade 12 (long story). 

So now I'm turning to the ILC Day School program, I brought it up to my counsellors last year but they have no clue wtf it is. 

I have a few questions:
*YCDSB Board
1) Does anyone know if YCDSB has an agreement with the ILC? 
2) How should I propose it to my counsellors? They're going to think I'm crazy for wanting to take a full semester course load, night school online, and then two other ILC courses. 
3) Do you think it's possible to balance the following and still do well? Do you recommend any course changes? 
- Adv. functions
- Bio 12
- Business Leadership
- Family Studies
- ENGLISH 12 U (Night school)
- Bio 11 (ILC)
- Economics (ILC)
- 15-20 hour work week 
- other ECs

Thank you guys so much for your time & help! 

1st year UBC student! Ask me anything!
I'm finishing up my first year at UBC as a Health Science student in the Land and Food Systems faculty.

Want to know how I got in? What UBC life is like? General advice about gr. 12/senior year and applying to universities? I'll try my best to answer any of your inquiries (:
Why are high school students going into business so optimistic?

High school business students be like:

“I’m going into Queen’s/Ivey, therefore I’m better than you” *creates hierarchy of tiers of b-schools as a thread*

“I want to become a CPA accountant and work for Big 4 at Bay street and then I’m gonna become an investment banker and work for GS at Wall street to make millions.”

“I have a 98% average (private schooled) and was the president of every club at my school, therefore everyone be jealous”

“After I finish undergrad with a 4.0 GPA, I’m going into MBA program then law school, then get my CFA, then CPA, then PhD to make my business card credentials as long as possible because I’m going to become a CEO”

I honestly don’t see engineering, science, arts students say these type of ridiculous things on the forum.
