I am going into grade 12 with a 93 average. I like all my courses. Find math a little repetitive and boring but don't mind it. good at science. I am not an artistic individual whatsoever but am extremely creative. Going to be playing a varsity sport in university. My choices of school are waterloo and u of t. Any recommendations for programs i should take, which school is the better school? Would i be making a smarter decision by looking at other school options? Thank you.

I am aiming for med school, and I was thinking of applying to UTSC because of distance and it's easier compared to downtown. Unfortunately, my parents want the prestigious name, and they are convinced that I'll have a higher chance for med. Which school would I have a higher chance at for med?
Which degree is better to get into vet school? Which would provide the most learning experience or possibly job opportunities if the vet thing doesn't work out? Which would provide better scholarships? ...Or does it even matter?
okay so id like to go into a life sciences program then later on medical school. i want to attend a university where its easier to maintain your gpa which i heard is hard to at u of t. i want to go to york due to it being "easier" yet still having somewhat of a reputation but as for ryerson, the location is much more appealing to me than york - i heard the reputation isnt so good though. what should i go for? im currently in grade 12.
I'm looking into the science business program at waterloo. My average is 93%. Is this a program with a lot of potential for a good career. Also is this program recognized as a good one or am I better off with life sciences at u of t.
I know posting these types of questions are stupid and I will get answers like "make sure your other marks are high and you'll be fine" type answers, but is that really the case? I decided to fast track grade 12 english this summer to get ahead and to have a lighter course load so I can focus on my math and science classes. My final mark was an 85, which is so incredibly low and I'm so embarrassed. As a student who will be applying to life sciences at UofT and McMaster, will this low mark really effect me if the rest of my top 6 courses are high marks. Also kind of random but in order to be eligible for the President's scholarship at UofT you have to have a 92% or higher average with all courses at and 'A' standing. Is an 85 considered an A standing??? I know I can still get a 92 average with my 85 english mark!
http://www.md.utoronto.ca/admissions/statistics.htm read that. York sent 5 kids to U of T medical school, so did guelph. Of all Canadian schools not listed specifically (including Trent, Lakehead and all the other schools you guys circle jerk about on this forum) 17 got into U of T medical school. That's a combined 27 kids from all the "easy GPA" schools out there, or one-in-ten students. Whereas Western sent 36 kids to U of T med school, U of T sent 55 kids (more than double all the "easy GPA" schools combined), Mac sent a whopping 69 (over two and a half times the "easy GPA" schools). Combined these three "competitive" and "difficult" and "not worth it" schools make up over 60% U of T medical school--the best and most selective medical school in the country. So you should understand that even if you go to these "competitive" schools, the outlook is a LOT better than that of those from "easy schools".
I've been looking through at schools which offer a BCom in Canada. I was only looking at Ontario but my dad told to be more open to and see what the other provinces offer. I was hesitant but now Sauder at UBC has become my #1 choice. I haven't heard much about it on this site. What are your thoughts
So heres my problem: I screwed up some prerequisite engineering courses in gr12. So during this entire summer I went to private school to upgrade my marks since i dont want to risk anything. My average so far is 84 after 2 repeats, and I am planning on to repeat more courses so i can have a higher average (maybe high 80s to low 90s). Ive already excluded UofT and Waterloo in my plan. So my question is what are my chances of getting into school like Ryerson, Ottawa, Carleton, UOIT or any other ontario school for engineering, computer science, or math? I really appreciate if anyone would give me some genuine information or advices. Thanks!!
I'm basically always on here so figured might as well make one of these and help out any prospective students.
Background: - First 2 years spent as BBA Co-op student, secured first coop term through BBA - Transferred into BAcc Co-op after 2 years - Currently doing a spring semester
You kinda get the best of both worlds since I have been in all (both) the programs offered at the Goodman School of Business!
And since I know these are gonna be popular Qs:
WHEN SEARCHING FOR 1ST CO-OP: - Avg (both major and overall) ~80% - ECs: Leadership position in a club, some entrepreneurial stuff, sports stuff - Work XP: General accounting internship at no-name organization doing very basic stuff, manual labour
Since attending Brock, I have received interview requests from (in no particular order): RBC x2, Canadian Tire Financial Services, Imperial Oil (Alberta), Ontario Securities Commission (CPA Approved), Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, Big 4 Audit (Toronto), Suncor (Alberta), TeamBuy .ca, Big 4 Audit (Calgary) and CPP Investment Board.
Note: These were not all co-op positions, some were just summer internship interviews.
AT TIME OF APPLYING TO UNIVERSITY (September 2012 Entry): - Rejected from BAcc Co-op - Accepted to BBA Co-op with 83.5% top 6
So feel free to ask me anything and I'll try to answer your Qs as best as I can!

I'm a second year Computer Engineering UBC student. I took first year sciences, lived in rez, and have since transferred into Engineering. I'm also an Orientations Leader and a volunteer for Destination UBC.
I can answer questions about about rez life, science, how I got into UBC, engineering or transferring. This is my second forum post, my old one was getting huge and a bit unwieldy.
I'm Bo and I've been around on this forum since forever ago. I just completed my first year of Software Engineering at uWaterloo and now I'm working at a startup in Waterloo for co-op. Back when I was in grade 12, I received offers to CS, Math/CPA, Double Degree, UofT EngSci, Schulich, and QC. Feel free to ask me anything! I also have a personal blog: https://bopeng.io which you guys can follow for tips and information related to University.
