Nursing Hopefuls 2015!
Hey everyone!

I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.

1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:


1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year


So common guys, reveal yourselves! ;)
Schulich BBA or Waterloo CS co-op
Hi guys, 

So June 1st is quickly approaching, and I have yet to come to make a decision to which school/program I want to devote my next four years to. Can you guys list the positives and negatives of each program and the potential job opportunities. Thank you so much in advance. 
BMath/BBA Double Degree student - Ask anything
Just like the topic says.



I am a BMath/BBA double degree student currently in my 4th year.



If you have any questions at all about admissions, co-op, courses, competition, work load, etc. just let me know either here or in a PM and I'll do my best to answer them.



I can also answer things about Laurier's BBA program or UW's Math programs.



Why an MBA is a very bad idea right now!
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/careers/management/canadas-mba-problem-the-cutthroat-industry-of-business-schools/article23793772/

I've been reading numerous posts with students saying that they want to pursue an MBA after their undergraduate degree, like it is an MD or JD that will open up a world of opportunities for them. There are 40+ universities in Canada now offering the MBA, and most cannot fill their large classes with domestic students, so they take in a lot of foreigners who can barely speak English. It's easier now than ever to get into an MBA program, even at the so-called "top tier" MBA schools.

Read the article I linked above and a simple google search will provide you guys with more information on this topic.

An undergraduate business degree is far cheaper than an MBA and actually a much better alternative. Only plan on doing the MBA if your company can pay for it in the future and you have a clear thought out plan with it.

The Only Majors to Go to University For


Ok so I see high school kids talk about going into art or business, and I think to myself, " well I will be seeing you in four years making my coffee". So I have to write this, because I fell for the trap. Every year high school kids think about going to university and spending thousands of dollars to study a hobby. I attended queens commerce for my undergrad, and learned the hard way. College majors such as English, political science, business, social sciences, humanities, psychology are all scams(to the most part). In this forum, business major seems to be the most popular, as I was one a couple of years ago. When I got accepted, I was so happy because I heard all the good stories of students going to work at big financial and consulting firms. This is not true. In theses so called " top Canadian business schools", the students are misinformed. Only a few and I mean a few go work in these big firms, while the rest works at crappy places. Today, everyone has a business major, so the job market is sh*t. Majors like English and humanities, are the biggest scam also, because high school kids think they are hoping to be the next Shakespeare, but instead they will be making sandwiches at McDonalds. Also pre med is another scam. If you major in biology, but do not get into med school, you are then useless. Unless you spend 5-6 years getting a PhD, your bio degree has 0 value. As the job market gets tougher and tougher, people need to realize that only a handful of college majors make the student more valuable. Examples, such as engineering, accounting and computer science. I wanted to rant about this because High school kids need to know about the trap of university majors.   
got off the wait list for Ryerson engineering
Hi, just got accepted for aerospace with 85% average. I was wait listed till now. Just thought I would share this info so that others know there is hope.
Laurier Communications vs Western MIT (co-op)
I'm torn between these two programs/schools. Anyone deciding between these or in either of these programs with any advice would be appreciated.  Also, is it hard to get into the co-op program at Laurier in the 2nd yr?
Schulich Second Round!
Anyone expecting a second round offer with midterm marks? What are your averages like?
Switching from single degree to double
Is it possible to switch from BBA to double degree? This is for both laurier bba and waterloo computer science, or laurier bba and laurier computer science. Thanks.
McGill admission cutoff went up!!
As I've been told, apparently the McGill admission avg for desautels this year is 95%... Last year it was a 93.7%. This is freaking me out bcz I'm still pending with a 94.6% avg..



To the people that got accepted already, do you mind sharing what your avg was so I can get an idea? I'm really worried :(
Queen's acceptance email
Anyone else just get an email from Queen's saying that you didn't accept your offer even though you actually did? 

McMaster vs Queen's for engineering
I have been accepted to both McMaster and Queen's for engineering, however, I can't decide between the two. I do not know which engineering discipline I want to pursue, so the general first year is good for me. Which school is better based on the program, reputation, campus and uni life?
University of Toronto vs Ryerson
I am currently deciding between UTM Commerce or Ryerson BM.
UTM Commerce is also Intern only, whilst Ryerson has a co-op program. I know people who've gone to Ryerson and told me great things about the school, the environment, and they both are now successful in their careers. However, I don't personally know anyone who has gone to UTM, but I've read some posts online. The posts I've seen are increasingly varied each time I enter a new thread. So I'd like to hear from people who've gone to UTM and what they think about it. How is the environment, curriculum, people, professors, university and overall experience?
Waterloo Faculty Scholarships
Hi!
I was just wondering if anyone has recieved a faculty scholarship yet, specifically for engineering.
Please note: I am not talking about merit/presidents scholarships.
Parents signature for OSAP form
In the OSAP form is asking for a signature from both of my parents, but both of my parents is currently out of the country. what can I do?
Do you need 2 Math courses for McGill????
For McGill's top 6, do you need 2 math courses? or is only calculus and vectors okay?
OSAP AFTER FILING CONSUMER PROPOSAL ??!!
Last year, I filed a Consumer Proposal due to the amount of debt i was previously in. Not knowing that by filing I can consequently get rejected by OSAP. I had no idea this would be an issue, before filing I asked my Trustee if id still be able to receive Osap after filing and she said yes! Is there any chance I can still Receive OSAP for school this coming September? Is there any one who filed a Consumer Proposal and still received OSAP funding???

Since everyone is becoming an engineer...
Since everybody in my school is wanting to become engineers because of the money it pays and the demand for it would it not be smart to major in something else? I always wanted to become a lawyer and I enjoy classes like law and philosophy but a lot of people have told be that the legal market is stale right now and it would  be a bad decision. Won't all of these huge tech companies need lawyer to defend them? I just want to make the right choice and not be screwed for my future.
International student worried about transitioning?
