Ask Anything About Waterloo AFM, SAF and CPA Here!
Hello prospective AFMers. I am an undergrad in AFM and I am here to answer any questions you may have regarding to AFM, SAF, Coop, CPA, or anything about Waterloo that is SAF related! 

UPDATE: Hi everyone, I am back. I had to avoid you guys so I don't get bombarded with questions like, "Do you think I can get in". Congrats on all the acceptances! Let me know if you need help for anything!

Waterloo AFM
I'm interested in this program and I am curious to know the difficulty of first year and also throughout the program. Is there a high dropout rate for this program or is it if you are accepted into the program that their is a lot of support and ultimately high graduation rate. Plus I see that you have to qualify for the masters year and was curious to know how rigorous it is because of the fact you get a masters in one year compared to the average time to get one(2-3 years)

University Admission Top 6 Average
So I'm going to grade 11 next year, and decided to take grade 12 accounting in my second semester. I heard that universities take your midterm grade 12 marks for admission, so will my grade 12 accounting credit be wasted? Or will it be sent off to the admission office with my other 3 grades from grade 12 midterm?
Business or Accounting Program?
Help! I am deciding on which career pathway to pursue. Some schools offer business programs, while some offer only accounting/finance programs. I don't know which to choose. What kind of jobs can you end up with if you study in a business program, can you still end up in accounting? If you study accounting are you restricted to just accounting as your field of specialty? Which degree will offer a better chance of employment after graduation? 
Please answer with your level of education/experience
Thank you!
IM IN A PREDICAMENT? Which part time job should I choose?
Ok so hi I'm back! (If you remember me from previous posts). Anyways, so I actually got hired at kumon, yay! I finished my 2 volunteering sessions. And will start working tommorow, the lady didn't ask for my bank info. So I assume she gives out cheques. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW KUMON PAYS THEIR EMPLOYEES??

Ok so here's the predicament I'm also working at McDonald's. And guess what? A have shift from each place at the same time. Great, anyways normally I would choose kumon because of the less hours, easier work and such. But I feel like useless employee there, because all I LITTERALLY do is grade work! Like another new employee got a chance to actually help the kids and they have me in the corner just grading work. And I even messed up on the fractions part of the test I did at my interview and my boss gave me sheets to do....she also complimented another girl on her performance working with the kids. And not me, I don't even get a chance to do that. my boss is nice and all, but I'm still afraid that IF I CHOOSE KUMON OVER MCDONALDS ILL END UP GETTING FIRED FROM KUMON and be JOBLESS! BUT I ESSENTIALLY WANT TO WORK AT KUMON.

Grade 11 and 12 Accounting
I was just wondering how important grade 11 and 12 accounting is. Im planning to go to either Brock or Laurier for accounting. Im going to grade 12 this year and i haven't taken either one. It might be possible for me to add both to my schedule this year, but would it be worth it? I'd rather focus on my other courses and get a higher overall average. 
What are your thoughts? 
Why is there not enough seats to accompany future med students?
So why isn't there? Medical schools receive very qualified students; yet turn down many due to spots available. Canada is facing a doctor shortage. Wouldn't it be more logical to open more spots?
Integration into Ontario in High School
We are a Canadian family staying in India.   Kid currently studying in grade 7.
 Would it be a good idea to shift to an Ontario High School in grade 11 or 12 from India ? Is it better to  complete High School and join as Undergraduate or better to start earlier in maybe grade 9.
Focus area is Medicine .
Thanks in advance. 
Current UBC student - ask me anything
I'm a second year Computer Engineering UBC student. I took first year sciences, lived in rez, and have since transferred into Engineering. I'm also an Orientations Leader and a volunteer for Destination UBC.

I can answer questions about about rez life, science, how I got into UBC, engineering or transferring. This is my second forum post, my old one was getting huge and a bit unwieldy. 
Confused with Questions
Hi everyone! I'm going into grade 12 this year and I plan on applying to university. My original plans were to apply to Carleton, McMaster, and Wilfrid Laurier for Social Work. I'm not feeling 100% anymore about it and I started looking into cultural geography and anthropology and urban planning. Could anyone tell me what the first year courses are like in the social work programs and any pros and cons? Also about the other topics that I mentioned?

I'm searching for funds to assist with my hockey academy at Notre Dame. If anyone has contacts or ways to assist please keep me in mind. I am a twin and fulfilling my dream of taking sports to the highest level that I can achieve, with the support of my community and local donors it might be possible.
Your Vision of "the Business Person"
I imagine that, as a businessman, I will eventually have my own office in a massive high rise that overlooks the financial district of some world class city. I will spend two or three hours of my work day with clients and colleagues and attend many networking events with powerful people in the industry. But, when I drive down the highway I see all of the corporate buildings and when I watch movies and see a white room stuffed with cubicles, I question if my vision of the life of the business person is romanticized. Can business students and graduates who have experience in the business world tell me if most business grads end up living the life I imagine they do, or do they sit in a cubicle as they work alongside highway noise in a boring office?
Best windows laptop for college?
What is the best laptop for college? Quite frankly, I am not a huge gamer.
Will a regular sized bagpack do for uni?
Title says it all. Do you carry a lot of stuff like in high school such as many binders and textbooks? Or will it be more like just a laptop and a binder/book? Thanks in advance.

Nursing Program at Ryerson University- HELP!!
I am a 2nd year student in a science program at University of waterloo and I am recently interested in the nursing program at Ryerson. As many other students, I did not do well first year due to the workload and stress, but I do enjoy sciences. 

I was wondering if my chances of applying to the nursing program at ryerson next fall would be slim due to my poor grades first year. and will I be able to transfer my credits or will I have to start first year all over again?

AFM Waterloo or BBA
What is the difference between the two programs? I want to get work experience, so which one will offer a better chance of getting into co-op?
AFM Waterloo
Just curious as to how to get into the AFM program at Waterloo? What was your application process like? What were you grades/extra curriculars? Also what year do you get into co-op? How competitive would you say the process is? I heard they only accept 300 people into the program. Would you say this program is better than BBA at Laurier? Not sure which to choose. Does the degree offer you the same kind of job options?
