Art-Sci at University of Toronto?
Anyone here in the art and sciences faculty at UofT or planning to go there?

What are your thoughts about this program? Would you consider it a decent undergraduate degree for someone who is interested in going to graduate school (i.e. law school) since there is no 'pre-law' degree.

I would most probably major in International Relations, Political Sciences, History OR Computer Science. Still thinking about this one.

US news and world report global university rankings
Recently UBC was ranked number 1 for computer science in Canada.Even thought it is only one ranking many other ranking have placed them very high for not only computer science but many other faculties. Also Ubc is ranked constantly as a top 3 school in Canada. So my question is why do people consider ubc Inferior. Nobody hear talks about the sauder school of business which is better that rotman and mcmasters but still believe all Ontario schools are better.
Any book suggestions?
I love a good fantasy or science fiction book. My personal favourites are Ender's Game series and The Darkest Minds trilogy. Any suggestions? What are your favourites at the moment?
Stress Levels
As a student, whether you're just beginning in grade 9, vying for university-level grades in grade 12, or enduring your second year of university/college, stress is pretty much present in every aspect of your life.  

Let's take a break from the grades for a moment. How are you? How are you, REALLY? 

I'm in grade 12 and definitely am feeling the pressure. I struggle with chemistry and advanced functions. I desperately want great marks, but feel hopeless and stupid when I don't understand a concept that everyone else seems to get. I want to be able to keep my other activities afloat without it affecting my grades. People say to me, work hard! but what if I do and still don't get anywhere? I don't exactly know what I would do if I don't get into the program of my choice. 

But I also try to remember that it's not exactly the end of the world if I don't do as amazing as I imagined I would. I remember that the purpose of life isn't exactly what we tell ourselves to be. 

How about you? What are your struggles, internal conflicts, and fears? How are you coping with them? Do you have any suggestions, any questions, anything you'd just like to rant about?
First Year Nanotechnology Engineering Student at Waterloo (AMA)
Hello prospective STEM students! I remember using this site quite a bit as a prospective engineering student last year and, among the flourishing egos, found some interesting and helpful information. I'm hoping to return the favour and offer some advice and insight to prospective students looking at STEM fields primarily at Waterloo. However, I did do some extensive research on U of T, Western and Queen's as well during the admission process, so I may be able to answer questions about some aspects of those universities as well. Feel free to ask me anything about engineering or Waterloo!

Applying to the Same School?
Hello! I am applying to universities soon, and I have a question that may not have a very direct answer. I really love the University of Guelph; the campus, the professors that I've met, and above all the programs. I definitely want to go through for plant biotechnology, which is only offered at Guelph, but I will be paying $140.00 to apply to three schools. My problem is that one of my back-up plans is genetics at Guelph. They are both Bsc programs, so would I even be able to apply to both of them? Does this depend on the school? Does it even matter that they are both Bsc since the specialization is different? Thanks so much!
night course
So Im taking a night course for physics 4U. will Waterloo accept night courses?? please reply fast, since i have already registered for it!!!!!!
Advanced Function Grade
I sort of messed up in my math class. I got a 91 on the first unit test while on the thinking task i got a 61. I didnt prepare at all for the thinking task and my course mark right now is a 85% if i was to get over 90s on the rest of the test/thinking tasks, will my mark be over 90 by end of semester? I know i can get over 90s on test. I want to apply for SE and CS at waterloo so im just wondering if i can still get it to be above 90%

Thanks so much

FREE editing for university supplementary applications
Hey all,

We’re a group of fourth years at Queen’s, UofT, and McGill, studying commerce, engineering, and life sciences respectively. We realize how stressful college applications can be so we’re working on an application related to college supplementaries. We’ve previously helped students write college essays and today, we’re offering free supplementary application editing.

Fill out http://goo.gl/dTx71P and upload your applications: we’ll get back to you with feedback. We’ll potentially be helping future university students with your application (don’t worry, we’ll only do this after May, when admission season is over). If you don’t have a rough draft yet, leave your email and we’ll offer you another opportunity later in the year.

http://goo.gl/dTx71P if you’re interested. 

Good luck!
Can I be accepted to Laurier
Currently, in highschool where  my math teacher is not the very best at explaining the concepts. I'm attending other classes to help increase the chances of getting a better mark and to actually understand the concepts. Is it possible of getting accepted in Laurier with a low-mid 80s in Advanced Function?

Rotman Commerce - U of T
Hello, can someone please explain university to me? I mean that in the most non stupidest way, lol. Like what does it mean by units (5 units, 12 units and such) per semester. 
Please just explain courses, units, how much credits they are worth, semesters and what not. I don't want to be clueless in this whole process.
Thanks in advance! Appreciate it. 
Hey guys, I'm interested in studying economics. Which school should I attend? Brock or Trent and why? Any other suggestions?
I never took accounting in HS . Worried
Do you think I will like accounting in general if I'm pretty much/average good at math. Got 90 on grade 11 functions and Im expecting a higher 90s for grade 12 adv. Functions since my tests are either perfect or one to two mistakes. My data management will be low to mid 90s i should say.. i never took accounting in grade 11 so i dont have the chance to take it this year. what do you guys think? I want to get a CPA designation.. but actually no idea what they do specifically. I mean, i know they do debits and credits and all that stuff, and it kind of interests me. Im just not so sure if i will like or hate it. Anyone here who didnt took accounting in hs but enjoyed it in univesity? And vice versa.

While there is no proven correlation between the quality of one’s educational institution and the quality of one’s professional competence, it is often an indicator. Medical schools have various levels of selectivity (some are harder to get into than others), and both the quality of their clinical training and level of research are measured. Additional medical training in both residency and fellowships and the facilities they are conducted at also provide a history of the doctors’ level of training and experience.
