Law School
What can you do to ensure acceptance at law school apart from getting good grades? Do internships and co-op help. And which universities grade adequately for BA's?

queen's early acceptance????
queen's acceptance starts in dec but does anybody actually get accepted then? and is it just based off grade 11 marks until they get your sem 1 finals? AND do they only give early acceptance to people with really high averages or to everyone who meets their admission requirements/averages and has a decent pse?
thank you in advance!!!!!

Q/A Pharmacy
I am third year student at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. I did a Bachelor's degree (Hons. BSc) in Biochemistry with a specialization of pathology of human disease at the University of Western Ontario. My GPA was 3.91 when I applied for pharmacy school.
Please ask me anything in terms of pharmacy.

Do universities look down upon private school-done courses?
Just to start on grade 12 courses ahead of time; I was looking into private schools that allow you to get a credit/complete a course as long as 110 hours of class are met.

If I were to complete a course with paying for the private school, attending the needed class hours, and studying my heart out, would universities disregard the course mark?

Is it only looked down upon? Do universities' ignore the mark- as if it was not done?
Should I avoid completing a course with a private school?

Suggestions, experience, thoughts, literally anything would help.

Thanks in advance.

BMath/BBA Double Degree student - Ask anything
Just like the topic says.

I am a BMath/BBA double degree student currently in my 4th year.

If you have any questions at all about admissions, co-op, courses, competition, work load, etc. just let me know either here or in a PM and I'll do my best to answer them.

I can also answer things about Laurier's BBA program or UW's Math programs.

Diploma vs Undergrad
I am a gr 12 student looking into criminology, I have the option to do 2 years of Criminal Justice studies to recieve a diploma and continue to do 2 more years to recieve a bachelor of arts degree, is it worth recieveing the diploma or is it better to apply for the bachelors degree out of the gate?
Why is everyone on this forum so dead set on telling kids not to go into any given program?
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.

Hey guys,
I applied for Western Medical sciences (Pharmacology and Physiology) and McMaster Science (Biology) and U of T (life science). If my term 1 marks are the following will I have a big chance of being accepted? I don't know what the normal averages are so I'm a bit nervous.

What Canadian veterinarian school would you recommend?
I know this is a loaded question, but I need some advice on choosing where I should do my undergraduate degree. I'm a highschool student living in BC, so I am planning on moving to a province that has a veterinary school for my undergraduate degree because vet schools (except for UofSask) only accept residences of their own province. So as far as I know, the province I go to for my undergrad determines the veterinary school I can apply to. 

Choosing from Atlantic veterinary college, Ontario Veterinary College, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, and University of Calgary Veterinary Medicine, which college would you recommend in terms of university/city atmosphere, level of competitiveness when applying, and learning opportunities during the program? 

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Have questions about engineering applications? (UW/UTSG/Queen's/McMaster)
Hey everyone! (current grade 12s)
A year ago I was in your shoes stressing out about applications and things like averages, OUAC, supplementary essays/interviews, etc.  I know it can feel overwhelming at first, but if you have any questions about the process, feel free to ask me here! Upper years on these forums answered many of my past questions and while I'm just starting first-year at UW, I have gone through the whole application thing (applied/accepted to Waterloo, U of T, Queen's, and Mac's eng programs) and will do my best to help you out.  

tldr; any questions on engineering-specific applications, shoot them my way and I'll try to help yall out :)
