Is Ryerson engineering still giving out early offers
I applied to computer engineering at Ryerson. Gr11 and 12 averages were lit. However, my application status still says  Your application for this program is currently under review.

I'm not stressing out or anything but I am just wondering if I have to wait for offer in May or are they still accepting.

Everyone in my class got in, and I feel like I am just a rare case.

OFFFICIAL McGill early admissions thread
Alright homies, it's February 8 and I've heard of maybe one person who's gotten into McGill with early admission. If you're anything like me, minerva is your homepage and you check yconic every morning, searching through all the admissions forums to see if any lucky soul has actually heard back from McGill. To make this easier, let's make this the one thread we can all follow to be easily notified when someone is discussing/has received early admission from McGill. 

All in favour? 
U of T application
I've always wanted to go to U of T but was not to keen on leaving home (ottawa), but I've come to change my mind and was wondering if it's too late? I passed the deadline on the website and I don't want to bother wasting my money if I won't be given an opportunity. Does anyone know how late applications work? Btw I wouldn't be able to apply till about Monday, is that too late?? Thanks in advance!!

Hey everyone!

     I currently am in the business shsm program at my school & I think it's a great opportunity. However, in gr11 & 12 I have not taken co-op during the school year because I do not have the course space and all my classes are important. I was thinking about taking coop in the summer but my mom & I think that re- doing 3U functions would be a good idea because I didn't get my ideal grade. So with that being said, I'd like to take on the partial business shsm. Partial business shsm includes me not taking coop but meeting other requirements.

   Does doing a partial shsm make me look irresponsible on uni apps? I intend on studying economics or finance at Western, Brock or UFT. 

  Also, do uni's even look at shsm? From what I heard, uni's look at only IB and AP but on my transcript, won't is say that courses like Accounting (included for my top 6) were for shsm?

* I'm in gr11 btw

McMaster Life Sci VS Queen's Life Sci
Hello! Today is the best day of my life and I just got accepted into 3 programs, Mac Life Sci, Mac Chemical and Physical Sciences, and Queen's Science. I have also applied to Mac Health Sci but I won't get word until early May. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with the difference between Mac Life Sci and Queen's Life Sci, and possibly provide any info/opinions that may be able to guide me in the right direction, or even help me make a choice. Thanks so much in advance!!

Pros & Cons: Top 3 Ontario Universities for Accounting

Accounting is a very popular course of study at the moment – this is mainly due to the perceived job security that the CPA designation provides. So what are some of the best undergraduate programs for accounting in Canada's most populous province?

In no particular order….

Goodman School of Business, Brock University, BAcc


-Well-established co-op program

-Big-fish-in-small-pond scenario


-Friendly atmosphere/Brock's school spirit

-Accounting is one of Brock’s specialities


-Brock’s perception among some people

-Some people may be averse to St. Catharines

Schulich School of Business, York University, BBA/iBBA


-Well-established program

-Schulich's excellent reputation


-Accounting is one of Schulich’s specialities


-Perceived level of difficulty and competition among students

-Potential lack of school spirit (from being a commuter school)

-Lack of formal co-op program

University of Waterloo, AFM


-Strong co-op program

-Excellent reputation among students and employers

-Large alumni base

-Accounting is one of Waterloo's specialties


-Cost in comparison to the other school mentions (double the tuition means double the OSAP)

-There may be strong competition among students

All three schools also have a Master of Accounting program, which allows you to fast-track your way to the Common Final Exam while also earning a graduate degree.

Agree? Disagree? Voice your opinion below!

Western without Ivey?
I got accepted into Western BMOS, but I missed the Ivey AEO deadline (long story). Is it worth it to go to Western without the AEO or just go to another business program at another uni?

Western Ivey VS. McGill Desautels
I am an 105 applicant who got into both of these and other business programs in Canada. 

I have came down to these two universities as my top choices. 

There are some few things that just make it hard for me to choose which uni I should go to, 

so please help me choose. 

IVEY: PRO- Better recruitment, more opportunity, case study method, good social life and easier academics, I think I will be more prepared and confident when I step into a  business world if I go to IVEY. 

CONS- I come from a very FOB Asian family where an university's reputation matters a lot. So among Koreans, Western is not well known SO my parents really would not prefer me to go there. City of London could make me bored - 4 years is a long time. 

Desautels: PRO- I can master my French by practicing with Quebecois in Montreal, Mcgill has better reputation than Western, World wide connections (peers), City of Montreal, Unique experience, and my dad really wants me to go here cuz he works in a business world and every partner he has worked with knows McGill but not Western. 

CONS- Harder academics, I feel like I will just be book smart, not good career service.

Best University for Accounting
Tefler vs Sprott vs Brock 

 I know university is what you make of it, but i"m having a hard time deciding which program would best suit me. Im looking at campuses, student life, professors and job placement/ preparatory for a CPA. I was initially interested in Telfer, but I looked at Sprotts co-op program and was intrigued. I have also looked at other threads of people who claim to be from Brock working in the Big 4. Anyways my question is what university has the whole package.

Thanks in advance to anyone who replies

What are my chances of getting into the three programs I applied to?

So, please share:

I have applied to Centennial, George Brown, as well as Seneca. 

My backup program is biomedical sciences at Ryerson. 

I'm aiming for an average of 90. 
When do they usually send most of acceptance letters?
Hello, when do they send out most acceptance letter and which month should I start to worry if none had been sent to me?
I applied to Ryerson, York, and MacMaster. 
Peace out.

God Bless the US, Canada, Vatican, and Israel

Ryerson: Media Production vs. Guelph-Humber: Media Studies
I got accepted into Guelph-Humber and received an invite to do the Interview at Ryerson. Overall, I want to study various forms of media and communications rather than just production specifically. I really liked the courses, degree-diploma, and the co-op opportunities at Guelph-Humber, but I know that Ryerson has a better 'reputation' even though the media production is focused more on just production. 

I just want to know what people think about both programs, and if anyone is currently enrolled or know people that go to those schools. 

I live in Brampton and looking to commute to school. 
McMaster Health Sci Early Acceptance


My average was 90.17. I guess my supplementary application was good. The guy I paid to do it only charged me $100 too. https://buyessay.org/

Screw all the doubters!
