I know that University of Toronto - St. George only lets you apply to one stream, and if you apply to more than one, they ignore the other one and do whichever is ranked first. What other universities have this? Does York do this too? (I'm applying to Computer Science and Math, so if I don't get into Comp Sci, will they reject me for math too because they only consider the higher ranked program?).
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?
Hi guys,so i just need to know if i have a chance of getting into any of the unis i have applied to.
Ive applied to york(shulich bba) , Western(management ivey) , UOFT(rotman) , UBC(sauder) and mcgill(bcom)
I also applied to waterloo for afm but got rejected cos i didnt have an A in O level english, which was a prerequisite(i was unaware of this when applying).
I have checked the admission sites of the other unis i have applied to and they do not require an A in english.
So my question is if my grades and ECs are good enough to get into the remaining unis.
My AS level grades are As in accounts,maths and economics and a C in physics(which i have now dropped)
My predicted grades are also 3 As
In O levels i got 3A* 2A 4B
My ECs are:
60 hours of comm service for a non-profit healthcare organization(SINA)
60 hours of volunteering at A local hospital
20 hours of comm service teaching at a school for underprivileged kids
Hi guys! So i am reallly interested in the info tech honours program at uoit but since the uni if fairly new... i guess its not the first choice for employers. But that is what i think, did anyone of u go there? Or can tell me how it is?
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 feel like my possibly(in the range) 69-79 in MCR3U will impact my application towards
for Computer Science. The reason why I have a really terrible mark in grade 11 Math is because I tend to not try, and dont put any effort into work. All I have been doing for the past 5 tests is memorize the concept(I know, I shouldnt do this) instead of trying to understand it. I only do this because I know I really don't need to, not until grade 12 atleast, because in grade 12; I am going full out in school.
But I was wondering, will this low math mark impact my application towards these Unis?
As the titles mentions, I'm currently trying to rank the colleges at university of toronto on OUAC. I'm very confused how to go about ranking the colleges. What would be best for someone wanted to major in physics or math and physics??
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?
I got nominated by my school for this scholarship and just mailed my application, however i didnt have a 90 average throughout highschool, so will i still get into the commerce program through the chancellor application? and how are my chances of getting in before the new year? EC'S ARE AMAZING. Grade 9 average: 84% grade 10: 85.3% grade 11: 87.3% grade 12: 92.4%
