I apologize if this is a dumb question, but why are so many graduate/professional school students and professionals (i.e. doctors) posting on this forum and answering my questions? Not that I'm complaining! I'm just curious. Are they being compensated in any way?
I'm going to waterloo for accounting and financial management and I don't know if I should choose a macbook or a normal windows laptop. I know people say that you need a windows operating system but I've read reviews and i'm kind of not sure if the dell xps 13 is worth the risk. Would I be fine for the next 4 years using a macbook or is there a better laptop out there?
My Average for Grade 11 is an 87, I'm considering upgrading Functions for 2 Weeks in Summer School to get an average of 90+. If Grade 11 is not considered I won't attend summer school and I can just prepare for Grade 12 and volunteer.
Hi, I'll be going into grade 12 this year and I want to do business at schools likes Queen's, Western, Schulich, Laurier etc. I have pretty good marks and my EC's are ok but i doubt they're good enough. Here's a list:
-Relay for Life participant
-volunteered as a performer for a theater group; a group of about 30 of us performed shows to citizens of Toronto. We helped them "expand their horizons" in terms of visiting forgotten restaurants and landmarks (weird af i know, but it was fun) I also recruited a few members
-i had a job as a sales rep at Future Shop before it closed
-currently have a stock associate/cashier job at Food Basics
-volunteering for the Pan American games this summer
I know its all about how well you sell your EC's but I doubt I'd stand a chance with virtually no leadership experience. What kind of activities can I get involved in for my last year of high school to help fill the void?
I have a few commitments this summer: two jobs (one about 15 hrs a week, the second only 3-5 hrs a week) and 6 hours a week of volunteering. I'm wondering if it would be beneficial to my grades and mental stability to take a course online in August?
I'm leaning towards philosophy (as I need a "religion" course because I go to a catholic school, and I think it would be a pretty do-able class online. Does anyone have experience with this course (HZT4U) either online or in school? Or do you think I should take a different course online? Or none at all? Will I get a better grade online during summer or in school? Are spares important or not really necessary? Will I be more burnt out from having a reduced summer or a heavier course load during the year?
After summer, I'm going into grade 12 and I am very stressed as to which university (in Ontario preferably) would provide me with the best undergrad education in order to pursue law. Before naming a bunch of uni's I was hoping that you guys could help me out with what you know, maybe from experience or research, because oh boy have I been researching, and am still quite lost.
I was wondering what you guys think is the best undergrad major for someone like me, who would like to pursue law later on. What are the top three schools I should be looking at? Also please take into consideration the reputation of the school itself as well as graduating with a good GPA. Thank you :)
And what are you doing to reach your goal (Ecs, undergrad choice, research etc...)?? And what are your alternative careers if you decided you didn't want to go to med school anymore or didnt get accepted?
I always remember finding this forum really useful back when I was applying for universities in 2012, and I'd like to offer you the opportunity to actually get some hard knowledge about admissions rather than just hearsay. Though I'm in Sauder, I can answer any questions regarding direct entry to all UBC programs, Sauder transfer applications, and general university stuff.
You should all also take a look at the holy grail of UBC admissions, specifically table 18 where all admission averages for all programs for entry in 2013W are outlined.
I just received a rejection letter from UT social science program and IFP with an average of 86%. But my classmate with an average of 82%-83% was admitted.
I called the undergraduate admissions and was told that I provided only FOUR 4U courses. But that just doesn't make sense!
I checked OUAC and found interim grades for CIA4U, ENG4U, MCV4U, MHF4U and BOH4M. A final grade for LKADU was also uploaded in January. So they don't count BOH4M/LKADU when they check my academic records?
Although I have offers from other universities, I feel so bad to be refused for this ridiculous reason. Don't even mention that UT is my first choice!
Do you guys think I might have chance to appeal? Or re-admitted to UT? I contacted a student advisor in my school and she is willing to call UT. But I am not sure what else I should do. Do you guys have any advice?
We all know both have its pros and cons. I'm hoping to go to professional school after, but UofT is a gpa killer however is definitely more prestige. Ryerson on the other hand seem to be opposite of that mentioned for UofT. Can someone please tell me what I should choose? I have to make a decision soon so any inputs are appreciated!
This is just a thread for applicants entering HBA1 in the fall at Ivey Business School (people actually starting HBA1, not high school applicants for AEO), feel free to share when you got your acceptance!
A small number of high school students from Canada goes abroad every year to medical school in the UK around 80 or so each year. Around 300 (mostly people who have finished undergrad) go to Ireland each year. Many of them want to return to Canada, go to the US or stay in the UK. Depending on your route, you might want to know more about the difficulties you might face including residency, completing, studying in a different country.
I've done a lot of research into residencies, the difficulties an IMG will face etc etc. So if you have questions, PM me or post on this topic.
Edit: I no longer am a medical student in the UK. I did finish three years in the UK but am now attending medical school in Canada. I am still available for advice regarding the UK however.
