Hi, i live in Ontario, I heard extra actives we do in school can help in the university admissions. Some activities are like the DECA club. Unfortunately i cant join because it almost December now. Are there any other activities that i can join that will help my chances to accepted into a university?
Hi everyone, i am going to apply for university in a week and not sure what university program to choose. I want to become a charted accountant. I have heard about the Waterloo's special program for accounting. It is 5 years in length and after completion we can become a charted accounted. I don't want to do a 4 year undergrad than 2 years masters in order to become a CA. Waterloo is great for that but I need 90% average but i only have an average of about 78%....... Are there any other specialized programs for accounting that requires the minimum time to become a CA?
I understand that many careers are in demand (engineering, nursing, accounting), and it is very likely for these majors to get jobs after university. But if all students pursue these majors, wont there be an oversaturation of these majors and other positions will not be able to be filled? Dont we need some people to pursue arts and sciences?Someone please explain this philisophy.
I understand that it's hard to find jobs in some fields. I'm sure almost everyone on here does as well. It seems that every post i see, there's always some anonymous commenter discouraging them and telling them "good luck working at starbucks/mcdonalds/burger king/etc." I just saw something that said the only useful degrees were engineering and computer science. Do you think that Engineers and Comp. Sci majors can do every job that our complex society needs? No, they can't. Yes, it may be hard to find a high paying job with certain degrees but who are you to assume that making money is all someone cares about? Coming from the home of a single mother who makes a little over 50k a year, I can tell you that having an average paying job isn't hell like people on here make it out to be. I would never go against what i aspire to do based on the amount of money I'd start off making.
It just seems that some people are so dead-set on tearing people's goals down on here and I just wanted to let people know that their degree isn't "useless" if it doesn't get them a job paying 100k off the bat.
I am an Ontario high school student interested in enrolling in a science program for undergrad. I was never sure whether U of T was the right choice for me. So, I am thinking maybe I'll apply to York but then I did so little research on the science programs at York bc it was always as if I wanted to get outta there real quick with a high GPA and that was it. I never thought of trying to make my undergrad career at York count. So, my questions are: what scholarships does the school offer? What is a good science program with a more competitive average?
Any opinions on the University of Guelph, just in general and/or specifically any of the following programs: animal biology, animal science, zoology, wildlife conservation, and equine management. Thanks in advance!
Hey, guys just wondering if people who had high 80's actually got in any engineering program at Waterloo. I've read a few discussions and it seems to me that people who applied/responded generally had an average greater than 90. Were there people who had high 80's and got in? Should I even bother applying? Please let me know if any of you got in?
I'm trying to decide between applying to Biological Sciences or Biochemistry at UofA. I'm also considering taking a similar undergrad degree at UBCO. I don't really know which one will set me up best for the future or if one degree is better/more interesting than the other. My dream is to get into vet school at UofC but I realize that vet school is super competitive and may not be the most realistic goal, so I need something to fall back on.
Hello, I was hoping that some of you guys could tell me what Mechnical Engineering deals with, and be specific. Should I study it in Unil if so, What uni would be the best? Lastly, is it easy to find a job for Mechanical Engineering?
Has anyone been accepted to university of Guelph yet? If so what date, program, and average did you apply with? I think it would be a great way to know when the early acceptances start coming out and how high the bar is. Best of luck everyone!
I was wondering which university would be the best to apply for political sciences program. So far I've looked into the honors arts and business in waterloo, political science (co-op) in uottawa, poli Sci in carleton (co-op). It's for my undergrad degree and I really can't choose. Also, I'm planning to do a MA after. So anyone who has any experience in these programs or field and would like to share their opinions would be very helpful !!!!
