Single room vs Double room!
I like the comfort of having privacy but everyone says having a roommate and a communal bathroom leads to making more friends, I'm already a very outgoing person, what do you suggest?
Rotman Courses
<p>

i have just accepted my offer to Rotman commerce and would like some input on good courses to take. I want to go either into banking and finance or go on to get a law degree. what classes would be most beneficial to me? (other than the required courses)</p><p> </p>
Which life science program should I choose?
Didn't get into western med sci or general sci (my first choice) or mac life sci. My average was mid 80s. I got into UTSG life science and a few other universities like waterloo life sci and queens sci, but the only three I'm actually considering are UT, Ottawa health sci, and guelph general science. 
It was my fault for slacking this year and messing up my chances at a great university. I'm really torn because I know I'm capable and just need to get my act together, but I'm unhappy with the university choices. UT accepts just about anyone for life science and they weed people out first year. I have people close to me who went to UT same program and advise against it, and many of these people have become doctors themselves. They say it ruins your GPA and is really tough and stressful, and no coop opportunities anyway.
I was going to go to UT but now I'm doubtful. I'm thinking of going to Guelph first year and I'd try to get really high grades so I can transfer to western's general sci or med sci program 2nd year because they seem like a more reputable university. But what's the switching process like? I heard it's really tough.
I'm not too sure what I want to do for a future career, all i know is I want to go to graduate school (so that's why I want to go to an easier undergrad program so I can maintain a higher GPA), and either dental school or pharmacy (whatever I like better), and nursing as a backup.  
Please help me out, I really don't know what to do and I only have a couple of days to decide. Is it worth coming back an extra semester?

When to press Accept??
I know the deadline for pressing accept for uni offers is June 1st but a lot of people say that it takes time for the acceptance to process so is it bad to press accept on the 30th or 31st?

Business: Current Student at Schulich - Uni Admissions (Ask Questions!)
Hi everyone!

So I this is a pretty stressful time for a lot of you, who are applying to business schools across Ontario, and just wanted to give back as this site helped me while I was choosing which school to go to. I currently go to Schulich, so feel free to ask questions about the student life, admission grades, extracurriculars, possible chances, and things like that! Good luck :)
Schulich Delayed Entry Program
Hey, 

So I am applying to the Schulich School of Business Delayed Entry Program!!!I know..everywhere it says that there's no point they hardly accept anyone! Plus there are like no forums where I can chat with people who are applying or who have applied. If you are applying or have applied, I would really appreciate if you could post your experience. Especially mention what gpa you applied/you're applying with and what school you applied/you're applying from
Schulich Rejection Posts!
Who else ended up getting rejected?! Lets squad up people!
am i the only one who doesn't care about prestige?
I really could care less about how prestigious a university is because I really feel that the program and facilities itself is much more important. A uni could have the best prestige in the world but crappy facilities, which is obviously highly unlikely but for certain programs it is actually true.

I feel like your choice of university should also depend on what you plan to do after undergrad studies so if you want to go med school, law school etc., a uni with easier academia would be better in that case and grad schools in Canada don't give a flying f*ck about how reputable your school is!
This is just my honest opinion. I am tired of kids bashing each other because one of them goes Waterloo and the other goes to York. Who cares? You guys are all getting a wonderful education and that is the most important thing. If a person is happier at a different school, isn't that what matters the most? I respect everyone at every school regardless of what bachelor's degree they are pursuing. We should all just respect each other's decisions and just help each other out because the world really sucks and I just think it's important to be kind. This is super cheesy.

I won't lie though, UofT is my favourite university in Canada. lmao. I just contradicted myself in a way but yeah. Make wise choices my homies because we all deserve to have the best education and a life full of joy so f*ck prestige and block out all da crap talkers and choose a uni based on your preferences. Good luck to everyone! Every single one of you deserve to achieve your dreams!
Presidents scholars of excellence-u of t

Hello, I am very interested in U of T's President’s Scholars of Excellence Program which offers $5000 and additional benefits. However, there is only a limited amount available. I was hoping that any individuals who received this award could please tell me what their average was at the time of application as well as the courses that were included in their top 6 average.
UofT Scholars Program, President's scholar of excellence program
I am interested in the Scholars Program and the presidents Scholars Excellence Program offered at the University of Toronto. The numbers may have been different in years past but they currently offer $6,000 and $10,000 respectively. Would any past or current recipient of any of the two awards mind posting their averages?

Thanks!
U of T's President's Scholars of Excellence
Does anyone know how high the average needs to be to get this award? Do they look at the prerequisite courses, or the highest six marks?
UW/WLU double degree or ryerson aerospace
Should i choose the double degree or aerospace at Ryerson? I know i want to go into the aerospace industry after university but the double degree seems really valuable and i feel like i can work in the aerospace industry with a computer science degree. Also, can i get a masters of engineering after i do the double degree or am i stuck being a computer scientist.

Thanks

WiFi On Campus at Western
This is a question for current Western students. I thank you in advance for responding. My question is whether there is free WiFi to be used with cellphones on campus. I understand there is the RezNet in residence, but what I want to know is if students get free WiFi in classrooms, bus stops, gyms, cafeteria etc on campus.

I ask because I am on a tight budget. I want to see if I need to pay for a more expensive cell phone plan with more data, instead of one with minimal data if WiFi is freely available on campus.

Thanks.

Most Fun Musical Instrument In Your Opinion?
Hey! So I was thinking of getting lessons on an instrument this summer, and continuing it for who knows how long. Anyway, I've played the guitar a bit, and know the basics. I want to know what instruments you guys think are fun to play and how much it costs for the instrument.

Thanks!
