Queen's acceptance email
Anyone else just get an email from Queen's saying that you didn't accept your offer even though you actually did? 

University of Mississauga or Ryerson?
<p>I currently am deciding between UTM Commerce or Ryerson BM. Which is the better university regarding a job in business, or more specifically, the programs I applied for? </p><p>
UTM Commerce is also Intern only, whilst Ryerson has a co-op program. I know people who've gone to Ryerson and told me great things about the school, the environment, and they both are now successful in their careers. However, I don't personally know anyone who has gone to UTM, but I've read some posts online.</p><p>
So I'd like to hear from people who've gone to these two universities, preferably UTM or elsewhere (for non-bias reasons) and what they think about it.</p>

Do you need 2 Math courses for McGill????
For McGill's top 6, do you need 2 math courses? or is only calculus and vectors okay?
Last year, I filed a Consumer Proposal due to the amount of debt i was previously in. Not knowing that by filing I can consequently get rejected by OSAP. I had no idea this would be an issue, before filing I asked my Trustee if id still be able to receive Osap after filing and she said yes! Is there any chance I can still Receive OSAP for school this coming September? Is there any one who filed a Consumer Proposal and still received OSAP funding???

McGill admission cutoff went up!!
As I've been told, apparently the McGill admission avg for desautels this year is 95%... Last year it was a 93.7%. This is freaking me out bcz I'm still pending with a 94.6% avg..

To the people that got accepted already, do you mind sharing what your avg was so I can get an idea? I'm really worried :(
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.
International student worried about transitioning?
Hi guys,

I am going to U of T for Mechanical Engineering next year, but I am an international student (India) and I am worried about making the transition to a Western School.

McMaster vs Queen's for engineering
I have been accepted to both McMaster and Queen's for engineering, however, I can't decide between the two. I do not know which engineering discipline I want to pursue, so the general first year is good for me. Which school is better based on the program, reputation, campus and uni life?
Switching from single degree to double
Is it possible to switch from BBA to double degree? This is for both laurier bba and waterloo computer science, or laurier bba and laurier computer science. Thanks.
I'm really depressed right now. Don't know what to do. HELP :( :( :(
    I've always been a music lover since I was little and my dream is to pursue a career in music composition. I'm also pretty decent at math and the sciences, which is why my parents and my family relatives wanted me to go into engineering. I've had many debates with my parents and it didn't work out. I thought maybe I should just give up my dreams and obey my parents since they've worked so hard to raise me. They even immigrated to Canada to work on low wage jobs in order for me to have a healthy environment and less rigorous education (I came from China). 

    So I stayed away from playing music in the past 8 months and focused on my academics. I was a slacker from grade 9-11 and my marks were in the 60s and 70s, and even 50s. Because I care a lot about pride and prestige, I worked really hard this year and competed against the top students in each of my classes, and I got accepted into U of T Electrical Engineering. 

    Getting the marks needed for engineering admission at U of T was a really big stretch for me because of how bad my foundations and study habits were in the lower grades. I've pissed off a lot of my friends and teachers this year because of how academically focused and stubborn I became. Some of them are going to different universities this year and I really regret not spending enough time with them. I don't even know if I'm going to enjoy my life as an engineering student and engineer. I can't switch into music because my parents will be disappointed in me and I will feel bad.

 Is it worth sacrificing the things you enjoy doing and live on pride and live for others? 
got off the wait list for Ryerson engineering
Hi, just got accepted for aerospace with 85% average. I was wait listed till now. Just thought I would share this info so that others know there is hope.
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.
