Queen's Arts v.s Western Social Science v.s. Western BMO's
 I've been accepted to Queen's Arts, and Western Social Science & BMOs program. The deadline is coming up soon and I have no idea where I want to go. I am planning to major in economics. Which school has a better program? Are Western classes a lot bigger compared to Queen's? Does Queen's have a better reputation that will open more job opportunities in the future? The slight advantage Western has is I have better odds to get into Ivey if that is what I decide to do for 3rd year. </p><p>
</p><p>I like both campuses, and can see myself at both schools. Other factors are my girlfriend is going to Queen's and one of my best friends is going to Western (I know that isn't a deciding factor but I figured the more you know the better advice can be given). I will also be playing varsity soccer for both schools. </p><p>
</p><p>Overall both schools offer a lot and I don't know what would be better for me so if anyone has any advice or opinions I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!</p>
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! ;)
Schulich BBA vs. Laurier BBA/BSc vs. Western BMOS
Hey yall,

I got accepted to all the programs mentioned above and I'm really torn on what to choose. Schulich obviously has the reputation, but does reputation really matter for an undergrad program? With Laurier I got into the Business/Computer Science double degree (not waterloo, just at laurier) with guaranteed co op and its five years. As someone who's not really passionate about computer science, is it really worth doing a Computer Science degree and stay at uni for an extra year? I love the campus and environment at Western and theres a better chance to get into ivey from western, but is it worth going to Bmos with no guarantee of actually getting into Ivey?

What are your thoughts?

Any feedback or information about the programs is appreciated. 
Lassonde Mech. Eng 84% average
Applied with an 84.3% average and have yet to receive a response. Anyone else still waiting for an acceptance?
U of T Admissions Average-Engineering
I'm in grade 11 right now, but I'm taking physics 12 right now, and it looks like I'll finish at best with 93%. Would I still have a chance at any engineering if I can get 98+ in math 12 and 95+ in chemistry & English 12 (both are also AP)? Because someone told me you need over 95 in every science you take to get into U of T engineering, but is 93 close enough?
Schulich BBA vs. Brock BAcc w/ co-op
The deadline is approaching and i've narrowed down my options to Brock and Schulich. I'm set on pursuing my CPA designation. I know majority would say Schulich simply because of its prestige, but I would like to know which program will be best if i want my CPA designation? Here are some of the pros and cons that I've come up with.

Schulich BBA 
-prestige, known for accounting
-close to home so it's cheap

-heard that the campus life isn't so great
-no co-op, and co-op is essential for obtaining your CPA designation

Brock BAcc
-got into co-op
-quick way to obtain CPA designation [skip some modules, etc]

-far from home, so more money will go to rez

Thanks in advance!
Western Kin?
Does anybody know if they are still accepting students? And what average their cut off is?
Schulich Second Round!
Anyone expecting a second round offer with midterm marks? What are your averages like?
Currently finishing first year @ DeGroote School of Business. Ask me anything!
I'm usually really busy due to school, but I will try and answer any DeGroote/Business/Application/Social/McMaster related questions based on my experience! I apologize in advance if I'm late or don't get to your question. Everything posted here are from my own personal experiences and it's my own opinion. I personally feel that not a lot of DeGroote students uses this forum, and oftentimes we are being misrepresented. Therefore, I created this thread to clear things up and to provide advices from the actual experiences that I've been through. I'm not an official McMaster representative & do not affiliate with the McMaster admissions in anyway.

Guelph VS Queen's??
I need to make my decision by tomorrow and can't come to a conclusion. I am choosing between Honour Bio-Med at Guelph and Honours Science at Queen's. I visited both campuses and like Queens' campus better, although the city of Kingston was sort of dead. Guelph is only an hour away from Toronto (where I live) so I can come for visits next year easily. I guess my deciding factor should be about the program...which one is better? Although, I also want to hear about campus life.
Engineering Help!!
        So I got into a few universities and I have narrowed it down to 2 options which I cant decide between</p><p>1.University of Guelph - General engineering (major in mechanical)</p><p>2. UOIT - Mechanical engineering (major in mechatronics)
</p><p>The thing is, I like the UOIT program much better and ive heard it has a good employement rate. However Guelph is more reputable as it is older. Can someone give me advice where I should go? And how the engineering program at both places are</p>

2nd Year at UTM Commerce (Ask me anything)
Hi, I am currently a second year Commerce student who wants to specialize in accounting. Feel free to ask anything
Help with acceptance
I need some advice! So I have 2 offers and they are both expiring on the 1st. Both programs are conditional based on the requirement of biology to be over 65% and 70% respectively. I don't think I can get a 70% but the school/program is much better, so should I accept it even though I'm sure it won't meet 70% and hope to still get in via Summer school upgrading? Or can I accept both? I don't want to lose my other offer because just in case I don't want to take summerschool and I'll just wanna go there.
Which housing Dorm?
Hey guys,

I recently accepted my Laurier acceptance so for any of you going next year, hope to see you there :)

Currently, I'm stuck on choosing res, if any current students or even future students want to give me some input on which residence site is optimal, it would be greatly appreciated :)

Some background info:

Next year I'm enrolled in the BBA(WLU) / BCS (UW) program, so I prefer to be in walking distance of waterloo.
I want somewhere with a good social atmosphere, so I can meet new people 

Pretty much it lol

Thanks in advance
May 28 deadline?
Decisions have to be communicated via OUAC "by May 28" but does that mean that they'll be updated in the 2am-3am update cycle in the (early) morning of May 28 (ie a few hours from now) or the universities SEND them on the 28th, and they're updated in the early hours of May 29?

And does it actually say "declined" for the schools you've been declined from or is there just blank space (ie no "Offer: expires June 1") like there currently is?

One more question... can you accept a school ON June 1st, or is that too late?
York scholarships

I currently have a 93% average, which allows a $2500 scholarship. 
If one of the courses I use for my top 6 drops significantly, will they automatically substitute another course in place of that? 

Thank you.

The Only Majors to Go to University For

Ok so I see high school kids talk about going into art or business, and I think to myself, " well I will be seeing you in four years making my coffee". So I have to write this, because I fell for the trap. Every year high school kids think about going to university and spending thousands of dollars to study a hobby. I attended queens commerce for my undergrad, and learned the hard way. College majors such as English, political science, business, social sciences, humanities, psychology are all scams(to the most part). In this forum, business major seems to be the most popular, as I was one a couple of years ago. When I got accepted, I was so happy because I heard all the good stories of students going to work at big financial and consulting firms. This is not true. In theses so called " top Canadian business schools", the students are misinformed. Only a few and I mean a few go work in these big firms, while the rest works at crappy places. Today, everyone has a business major, so the job market is sh*t. Majors like English and humanities, are the biggest scam also, because high school kids think they are hoping to be the next Shakespeare, but instead they will be making sandwiches at McDonalds. Also pre med is another scam. If you major in biology, but do not get into med school, you are then useless. Unless you spend 5-6 years getting a PhD, your bio degree has 0 value. As the job market gets tougher and tougher, people need to realize that only a handful of college majors make the student more valuable. Examples, such as engineering, accounting and computer science. I wanted to rant about this because High school kids need to know about the trap of university majors.
