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.
Schulich Second Round!
Anyone expecting a second round offer with midterm marks? What are your averages like?
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?
2nd year at QC, AMA
Just finished my 2nd year at Queen's Commerce, feel free to ask me anything!
York scholarships
Hey, 

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.

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

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

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

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


Thanks in advance!
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. 
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.

Laptops for engineering?
Hey guys, I am going into engineering and if any senior or junior undergrad students can give some suggestions regarding which laptop is suitable for engineering. One student told me that an engineering must have:

- Min of 8GB ram
- i5 - i7
- 256GB SSD or use 1 TB external hard drive
- Easy to carry, preferably 13" 

I have seen many engineering students using MacBook Pro's, but some of the programs such as MatLab, are not compatible with OS. So I am leaning towards windows.

Thanks

McGill University the elite Ivey League school of Canada?
Anyone? 
The school has the highest entering average in Canada, top 1 university consecutively for many years, considered the "Harvard of the North" in America. 

Safe to say its the Ivy school of Canada?
wlu bba/finanicial math?
I'm thinking of applying for this program and was wondering what were the averages of those that go in? To any upper years in the program if i keep up with all my courses especially the math ones will I be able to do good (for me good is probably around the70's)? I'm alright in math as it takes me some practice to grasp the concepts. Also how difficult does it get after first year? Are the Math exams hard? if I do all the textbook work and pay attention in lectures will I be able to do good on the math midterms/exams?
