I relatively new to this forum site and from what I have seen all everyone on here cares about is prestige, putting people down, and picking jobs that only make more than 500 000. The business students are the worst!!
Is that all you really care about? I read someone (a business student) recently say that engineers can only make 250 000..... yeah ONLY. Life isn't all about money. Have you ever though about the toll, stress, and time that high paying salaries can take. I hate you little high school students who think just because you go to queens or lvey you will be handed a half million dollar salary...like? You all think you are the only business students well there are thousands of other graduating at the same time and they all think they will be multi millionaire CEO's. Wake and see the real lyfe.
I am going to take the Master of Economics program in University of Guelph this Fall and I have 2 section: Econometrics by Prof. Thanasis Stengos and Microeconomics by Prof.Asha Sadanand. Does anyone know any information about these 2 courses as textbook, exam and study method? I really appreciate your help much!
I am going into grade 12 and interested in business.
The title already says it all. I have heard a lot of good and bad things about these schools as well as many different points of view. Could you please tell me your preference in regard to any aspect of school and why.
The ultimate goal of attending a university is to land a job. Therefore, please address about the job placements after graduation.
Please be simple and unbiased as much as possible. Real personal experiences are highly preferred. If using any source on the internet, please be selective. No rage war and stay on the subject please.
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!
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!
How difficult is it to get a coop placement in America preferbly the bay area? For someone interested in taking computer or management engineering, or computer science at Waterloo (Still have not decided yet!)
I'm going into Ryerson Eng next year and the curriculum includes a course in which you program in the C language. Now I don't know rats arse about programming and was hoping to learn during the summer. I watched a few YouTube videos, but get lost . I checked out Code Academy but Code Academy doesn't have C programming.
Can anyone link some resources through which I can learn through? YouTube videos or a website similar to Code Academy ? Also whats a good C language compiler?
I'm a grade 12 student who is enrolling into Waterloo Computer Science (non-coop) this upcoming September.
I have no prior programming experience and I'm wondering what language I should start off with to prepare myself for Computer Science. I'm thinking about starting off with C++ as I heard it was one of the more complexer languages and it will make it easier on me when we begin with a more basic language in CS.
If anyone is in CS at any school, I'd like to hear your insight on what you think I should do to prepare myself for this upcoming fall season. I also would like to know if it would be better to go in with where I'm at (which is 0%) or if I should try to gain some sort of experience in programming to help prepare myself better. I'm hesitant as I heard that if I am not properly taught, I may form "bad coding habits" which will eventually be harder to fix later on.
I'm really nervous and intimidated by everyone going in with a lot of programming experience and I kind of want to enter on the same level as everyone else.
I would appreciate any feedback so please help a brotha out!
also if anyone could give me some advice on what I could do over the summer to land an intership.... yeaa
Hey everyone! I started this thread to answer questions from the potential class of 2017, and to keep all of the University of Toronto-related items in one place.
I'm a first year engineering student at the University of Toronto and I'm currently studying electrical/computer engineering (same courses as TrackOne). I commute to school every day, so I can't really answer that many questions about residence, but I'm sure others will be willing to chime in on that.
Sadly I go to a small private school that focuses more on academics than extracurriculars. Currently I hold a 90 average and want to go to Queens for Commerce.
My extracurriculars currently are:
I work 24 hours a week in my parent's small business (2 years).
I am the treasurer at my school (3 years).
Soccer (8 years).
Side note: Its very difficult for me to find extracurriculars in my area (GTA). This is because I am not able to look for leadership roles within my city :/. If anyone can give me ideas on where to volunteer it would be great. Any help is appreciated.
- My school does not offer any sports sadly.
-My school does not offer mentoring to younger ages.
- In other words, my school doesn't offer any extracurriculars.
I would want to join DECA but my school also does not offer it.
