SFU's Admission Average for Faculty of Science for Spring 2016 average is currently 95%. Is it just me or is that REALLY high?
I got an admission for the previous fall term but by then, the average was only 85%. I didn't apply elsewhere because I thought that with a 90% average and previous admission, I would surely get in... But no, I got wait listed
But why did the average jump so suddenly? Is that normal? Is it going to go down any time soon?

A year ago I was in your shoes stressing out about applications and things like averages, OUAC, supplementary essays/interviews, etc. I know it can feel overwhelming at first, but if you have any questions about the process, feel free to ask me here! Upper years on these forums answered many of my past questions and while I'm just starting first-year at UW, I have gone through the whole application thing (applied/accepted to Waterloo, U of T, Queen's, and Mac's eng programs) and will do my best to help you out.
tldr; any questions on engineering-specific applications, shoot them my way and I'll try to help yall out :)
I have been thinking of a career path for a very long time now. I am a 12+ I returned to high school for a semester. I now have discovered I have an extreme interest in becoming a park warden or something similar for Parks Canada. I would just like to know what programs are the best to get into for this career choice. I heard it can be flexible with what degree you take.
The problem is I am not very skilled in the sciences, in high school I only received marks of around mid 70's in sciences. Science interest me I'm just not very good at it. (I also never took chemistry, only Bio in grade 12) My other marks are fine; I plan to have an average of around 85%.
My main point is I was wondering if I can still pursue this career path taking a program like Criminal Justice and Public Policy at Guelph or Criminology elsewhere. I am told you can become a park warden or something similar taking these programs.
It seems the smart thing to do would be to take something like environmental management but like I said this requires advanced chemistry and so forth.
I am hard worker when I enjoy what I'm doing and I could defiantly work towards this path.
Im applying for some Ontario universities and scholarships, but what troubles me is that I have to somehow make my personal statement unique. And in order to do this, I would go out and seek information, ideas and opinions on books, newspaper, tv and the internet. Yet at the same Im worried about the "originality" of my essay. Can someone advise me how unique one's idea has to be to receive scholarship but at the same time not having to borrow other people's ideas? Thanks
ok, I understand the fact that UBC Mcgill and U of T are the best schools of Canada...
But why is there so much difference? look at the university rankings(global ones); these three are always getting ranked between 20-50 whereas ALL the other canadian universities are stuck in 100-300 ...is that the reality?
