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.

Laurier BBA
I'm going to Laurier! Anyone have any tips? 
What can I expect out of that school? 

Nursing Hopefuls 2015!
Hey everyone!

I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.

1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:

1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year

So common guys, reveal yourselves! ;)
2nd year at QC, AMA
Just finished my 2nd year at Queen's Commerce, feel free to ask me anything!
AFM with Fellowship or Schulich with 32000 scholarship?
My end goal is CPA and/or CFA designation and I'm looking at the recruitment aspect of both universities. Any suggestions?
U of T conditions not met
Did anyone else get conditional offer from U of T saying that all prereqs must be minimum 70%? I finished off calculus with 65% but I got the offer, do I have to repeat it again? But why did they offer me an acceptance? I'm confused at what to do, anyone know anything about this?
Should I go to DeGroote or Western BMOS w/o Ivey AEO?
How hard is it to get into Ivey without AEO? What's a wiser choice? I like westerns campus better than mcmaster
Engineering between York and Ryerson
So, I've gotten into both York and Ryerson for Engineering (computer), and I'm unsure of which one to go for. I only applied to UofT, Ryerson, and York because I wanted to stay in Toronto. I haven't heard from UofT yet (I'm a 105D applicant, apparently a lot of us are still waiting) but as of now, I have to make a decision between computer engineering at Ryerson vs. computer engineering at York U. Any suggestions? I know a lot of people say it doesn't matter where you go for undergrad, but seeing as Engineers dive right into the job market after undergrad (or at least they can if they choose to do so), I think its wise to think it through. Any ideas?

Duration: SIX MONTHS
MINDSCREEN FILM INSTITUTE, Chennai, a venture of Rajiv Menon, Director-Cinematographer, besides its regular courses on Cinematography and Screenwriting, is launching the SIX MONTHS COURSE on ACTING FOR FILM & TELEVISION
A chance to live many lifetimes
Actors or performers are the embodiment of a film as they are the ones who appear in the physical form on screen. They interpret the script, bring characters to life and need to be extremely adaptable. They must also have a good voice, a strong sense of expression and be able to transform gestures and emotions. Finally, they should be capable of imitating life and relationships.
While preparing students for films, television, theatre and voice-over, the course teaches script interpretation, characterization, diction, basic techniques, movement, observation, improvisation, role analysis, technique of make-up and basic ideas about costumes. Students are also guided in auditioning, compiling a portfolio and creating a comprehensive show reel.
This program is designed for individuals who desire to achieve a position in Film & Television, but want to focus exclusively on acting, with a concentration on acting for film. Classes include Scene Study, Meisner Technique, Acting for Film, Voice and Movement, Monologues, Improvisation, Audition Technique and Stage Combat. In addition to the course work, students perform projects, both on-camera and on stage.
A Repertory will be started by Mindscreen Film Institute in which the students of Acting will organize events to showcase their talent on stage regularly among the invitees from Media and public.
Skills learned as a result of successful completion of this program include:
The ability to work independently and collaboratively in a high-pressure creative environment
• In-depth knowledge of and experience with the art and craft of acting for film and television
• Experience with multiple modern and classical approaches to performance, script interpretation, and character formation
• Understanding of avenues for exposure using new media
• Ability to act confidently in front of the camera

What can I do with an economics degree?
I really really like economics, and am considering taking a major in uni.  BUT I'm not sure what kind of jobs you can get with this degree.  Does anyone have insight on this?
Hi all,

If anyone can kindly advise or provide details and input on a university that I should choose.

I have been accepted into Electrical engineering at Waterloo and Engineering COOP at McMaster and I am wondering which one to accept. 

I am looking to have a fun life for my university years and I am also hoping that I could end up finding a job at a big tech company. I value both my education and my time spent as a student. 

Is Waterloo really only studying/work? Would going there have any moments of being just as fun as MacMaster?


Carleton or U of T
I've been accepted to Carleton's neuroscience program and U of T STG' life sciences which one should I choose. I'm an international student and U of T is very prestigious but its also very very expensive. Moreover I read that u of T is a very difficult school but carleton is cheaper relatively easier than u of t . Which one would be the best for an international student? I'm willing to study hard but I need high GPA's.I want to apply for grad school.
Networking Tips
Next year is my first year at university. I have heard about the importance of networking for both my academic and real life career, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it. 

In an honest self-assessment, I am not too bad socially. I party, though not excessively. I generally get along with older kids and adults well. My Kryptonite is larger social settings, like events or group discussions, and meeting important people for the first time. I kind of blend into the background as the group gets larger and I don't know how to pace the conversation when it comes to someone who I'd really like to get to know.

Anyways, I am interested to know about general tips and maybe some advice for my specific situation, too! Thanks!
I got in to CFM and the DD (CS/BBA) from UW, but am having difficulty deciding.

After university, I think I want to attain a CFA and pursue a career in computer science and/or finance. The BBA in DD is more general business with courses I really don't care for. CFM's business is more focused on finance which is something I'm more interested in. 

Everybody is telling me to do the DD because it was harder to get in and the fact that you receive two degrees. They say that a general business degree is valuable in the future as you are more knowledgeable in all areas of business. But, I wish there were more finance courses in the DD.

What should I do?

Physics 11 mark important for UBC science?
I am in grade 11 in BC, Canada and currently getting a terrible mark in physics 11, like a 60-70 something. I am not good at math and physics naturally but math I can get an A if I try but physics I just can't understand. It is a prerequisite for UBC science so I have to take it. However, I suck at it. Which is why my focus is biology after getting into UBC science. Should I retake my physics 11 and hopefully get a higher grade or would it just be a waste of time since I will not be taking physics 12 and I will go into biology after first year general science in UBC anyways. I will take the physics 12 equivalent in university so does that mean I will need 2 physics courses? one grade 12 equivalent and one university first year physics? Please help! Physics is the only BIG worry I have :(
No word yet !! UBC
I have applied for Computer science Co-op but havent heard anything yet .
What should I do?
Is the anyone with the same situation?
UToronto: Engineering
Who else is still waiting to hear a response from U Toronto regarding their application to engineering?

I believe offers are being handed out until May 28th.

I'm an out of province transfer applicant, so I guess it will take longer for me to hear a response than the Ontario applicants.

UTM Commerce vs. Ryerson Accounting and Finance
Hey, I am truly torn between these two programs. I know UTM is more prestigious but it does not have any co-op opportunities and also i have heard that it is very difficult to move on to second year where the Commerce program truly begins. For Ryerson, I see that alot of people on these forums bash TRSM but I have heard that the Accounting and Finance program has made huge strides and is an up and coming program and it also has co-op.

Which program should I choose and why? Please help! I only have a few more days to decide.
Business Advice for Startups and Small Business Owners
When you enter a business, you enter a venture where learning never stops, new opportunities always rise and new competitions always enter the scene. Whatever the size of the business does not matter when it comes to new knowledge, yet somehow, being a startup and a small business owner has its own disadvantages obviously. Take us, for example. Axis Capital Group ( ), a credit source offering small companies loan options located in Nebraska and now expands to Singapore and Jakarta, Indonesia ( ) has had tough times. Even when we are starting, we compete with large credit companies with big names in the industry. We set ourselves apart from others through traditional methods which up until now has been very helpful in how we do our ways.

1. Define yourself and your business’ culture

Authenticity is key – be yourself. You cannot keep your business when you act all fraudulent about things. This frame of mind is essential in helping define your business’ culture. This can also be one of the factors in leading and setting the tone for your employees.

2. Keep track of your Long Term Goal

At the outset of your new venture, you will likely spend all of your time with your nose to the grindstone, which can make it tough to see the big picture. While getting through daily operations matters, you should never lose sight of your long-term goal. When it comes to this, think big. Sure, you may have a sense of where you want to go in a two- or three-year plan, but think longer term.

3. A journal can be helpful

It may be very hectic to run a small business firsthand and adding another task to the unending to-do list is typically an added stress. Nevertheless, take time to write down things you have done during the day. It may help you build a concrete outline of your thoughts and priorities.

4. Take a Leap and a little Risk

Review what you have already achieved and what is left to achieve. In order for you to expand your business, you have to take a leap and look into the risk involved without putting those involved in jeopardy. Empower your employees to do the same. Let them make decisions and grow the business, and good results will follow. It will likely help foster your business’ culture and your reputation as a leader as well.

UofT is taking soo long!
Hii! I'm an international student currently applying to the University of Toronto and I still haven't gotten an admissions decision! I honestly don't know why it's taking so long. They received my last package on April 13th, and then they didn't update the documents received tab until May 12th. My application status says "Not yet reviewed", and I'm freaking out because I got into UBC and Waterloo and I need to accept or decline those offers by June 1st.. I only have 7 days left! Needless to say, UofT is my first choice.. How long does it take UofT to review applications once documents have been updated? And then how long does it take them to make a decision? I feel like it's a terrible sign the fact that I still haven't heard anything from them! Help :(
Since everyone is becoming an engineer...
Since everybody in my school is wanting to become engineers because of the money it pays and the demand for it would it not be smart to major in something else? I always wanted to become a lawyer and I enjoy classes like law and philosophy but a lot of people have told be that the legal market is stale right now and it would  be a bad decision. Won't all of these huge tech companies need lawyer to defend them? I just want to make the right choice and not be screwed for my future.
