I already accepted u of t rotmans but now I'm thinking it's not the right choice. I mean the dropout rate is crazy plus I'm commuting first year. I got accepted to degroote and Laurier Econ. At Laurier all my friends are there plus at Waterloo too... It makes me sad that they're living the life there and I'll be at Toronto grinding my ass off
I applied to Undecided Science (BSc) and Biomedical Science (BSc). York has gave me an alternate offer to Liberal Arts, but when I check on myFile, it still says no decision yet for the two programs I originally applied for. The last day to get an offer has passed, so do I still have a chance to get in to my original programs?
so today is the deadline for offers, and I applied to Guelph like 10 days ago, but haven't heard anything. My average was above the cut off I believe too. Anyways can anyone tell me where I can check if I have been rejected?
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.
Hey guys, I'm going to be taking my provincial next month and I'm nervous AF. For those of you who took it in January, could you please tell me how you found it or what the themes or essay questions were? Thanks in advance!
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?
I'm in grade 11 right now, but I'm taking physics 12 right now, and it looks like I'll finish at best with 93%. Would I still have a chance at any engineering if I can get 98+ in math 12 and 95+ in chemistry & English 12 (both are also AP)? Because someone told me you need over 95 in every science you take to get into U of T engineering, but is 93 close enough?
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?
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?
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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?
Hey, if anyone is interested in applying for McMaster's iSci program, I have info on that! I'm in first year, and just finished about half of my end-of-term exams (i.e. it's officially procrastination time), so if you have any questions about the program, or other Mac programs, or Mac in general, I'll do my best to answer them!
