cant make up my mind

Ryerson accounting and finance Bcom (co-op) VS. uOttawa telfer Bcom (co-op)
Hey guys. I live in toronto, and have gotten into Rotman commerce, ryreson accounting and finance and uottawa telfer bcom. I have always been looking for co op opportunities since i know it can open up many doors. Rotman has internship opportunities but due to high competition  the chances of getting them are very slim. 

Between these schools, which do you think is the best? And id appreciate if you provide pros/cons/reasoning. Thankyou
New layout
Anyone not fond of the new yconic layout? I prefer the old one.. So much easier to navigate.
Schulich Second Round!
Anyone expecting a second round offer with midterm marks? What are your averages like?
Where Should I Go?
So the day to accept is less than a week away and I have no clue what to do. I've got into 4 programs:

Carleton - Computer Systems Engineering
- Co-Op
- $9000 Scholarship ($3000 first year)
- Internship summer after first year, where I will make $4000 (Granted I maintain an average)

Ryerson - Computer Engineering
- Possible Internship after year 3
- $4000 Scholarship ($1000 first year)

University of Toronto Scarborough - Computer Science
- Co-Op

McMaster University - Math & Statistics 1 (Actuarial and Financial Math)
- Co-Op
- $4000 Scholarship ($1000 first year)

Carleton seems like the obvious answer, but I live in Toronto. If I go to Carleton I will be all alone which is my biggest concern. My strongest subject is Math, so I know I will be able to excel in McMaster's program - but will I be able to find a job? Computer Science isn't really an option because I didn't take ICS, but I included it anyway. Below is my transcript. Would be great to hear feed back from fellow students!

Chemistry 76

Physics 75

Advanced Functions 93

English 84

Calculus 90

Robotics 93

Engineering 100

Food & Nutrition 83

Comp. Engineering Average 86.33

Comp. Science/Math Average 90.5

Waterloo acceptance
Hi I'm a grade 11 wondering if a 90 average eld get me into mech eng at waterloo or math.
Hi all,

If anyone can kindly advise or provide details and input on a university that I should choose.

I have been accepted into Electrical engineering at Waterloo and Engineering COOP at McMaster and I am wondering which one to accept. 

I am looking to have a fun life for my university years and I am also hoping that I could end up finding a job at a big tech company. I value both my education and my time spent as a student. 

Is Waterloo really only studying/work? Would going there have any moments of being just as fun as MacMaster?


Anyone else worried about taking notes?
Hi guys,

I am going to Waterloo for Electrical and  Computer Engineering next year, but I am an international student (India) and I am worried about making the transition to a Western School.
My friend bought the StudyPass from and he says it has all has lecture notes and study guides ahead of time.

Has anyone else used such a service before?
What's the best business program in Canada?
My dad really wants me to attend Queen's Commerce, but I live in Kingston, and hate Queen's.
UTSC: Com Sci (non-coop), Ryerson undeclared engineering or uOttawa mechanical engi w/ duo degree in Computing technology
I need some advice on which school I should pick, any suggestions will help and if u can support the choice that will be great, Thanks
Btw, I live in toronto so ottawa is far away, though I heard they have a killer co op program.
McMaster Integrated Science Program
Mac's isci is basically my dream program right now, but I don't want to have my expectations come crashing down on me since isci is such a prestigious and exclusive program. I know that McMaster weights the essay more heavily than your grades, so there's no generic formula to judge my chances of getting in. Nevertheless, I would love to know the competitiveness of this program for applicants.

Could someone please tell me a general number of applicants that this program receives each year.

It would also be amazing if any isci students can tell me about the workload and their experiences of the program.
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 
-prestige, known for accounting
-close to home so it's cheap

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

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

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

Thanks in advance!
Rip School Strike 2015
How does everyone feel about our one month May summer vacation ending?
Admission in St. George
I applied to the St. George Campus and today I checked my join u of t account and it says I got accepted into Mississauga campus although I did not even apply there. So I checked the status of my St. George application and it still says file under review. Does it mean I still have a chance of getting into St. George? Or should I just accept my offer to Mississauga campus?
2nd year at QC, AMA
Just finished my 2nd year at Queen's Commerce, feel free to ask me anything!
Redoing Grade 10 math?
Hey, im in grade 10 and i really didnt put in effort at all this year and now i have a 68% in math. Not to mention my math teacher talks in a monotone voice while doing a lesson. A few of my friends from the class (10 academic math) do work together because we find we cant pay attention during her class but its hard because she doesn't explain anything very well. (A few grade twelve friends said not to worry because they got 60s too but its just her and she isnot allowed to teach senior grades for that exact reason). Im just wondering i know i will pass but would it benefit to redo grade ten math (i have a spare anyways) next year before i do functions? GIVE ME WISDOM :) Thanks yall!
Ryerson or Guelph: Biomedical Science
Hey guys!

The university acceptance deadline is coming up soon and I'm still stuck between the biomed programs at Ryerson and Guelph. What are the differences between the schools and programs? Which one do you recommend choosing and why?
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.   
Anyone rejected from UTSG CS given an alternate to UTSC/UTM?
Which campus did you receive an alternate to? Are you going? Will you apply for a transfer to the main campus?
Hey Guys,

So I think I made a bad mistake. I recently logged onto OUAC to decline some offers I knew I was not interested in anymore. To do so, you must "submit". However, after submitting, I remembered I did not respond to/accept the program I wanted to. Now that OUAC is processing this, I cannot log back in to undo this? Will I still be able to accept programs or did I just shoot myself in the foot? 
Queen's Deposit Problem
so i have accepted the offer, i've paid the residence deposit, but they didnt ask me to pay any deposit for the program... is this normal? or did i just miss something?
