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.
This will probably get a lot of hate but I think you guys should know this. A lot of asian families believe that if you don't have a degree in business, science or engineering you are a failure but this is not true. I have finished my engineering degree at UofT over a year ago and still have not found a job or at least something sustainable. My bestfriend since middle school went into the trades and learned how to become a plumber. He made money while learning and the company he did his apprenticeship with hired him and he is making over 50k a year in his second year of working. Someone else who I connected with on facebook who I went to highschool with years ago never went to uni and he makes 70k a year repairing elevators.
I'm not saying don't go to university but think first, if I was not a child of immigrants who worked hard to get to Canada I would have most likely would not go to uni and be better off than I am right now.
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.
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 want to pursue a career in math or, math and science as those are two of my best subjects and the ones i enjoy the most. What are some jobs that are in that field of interest and have a pretty decent salary, like 65,000+ starting, and which can go up to 100,000+ as you gain more experience? I know like jobs in math and science are basically all engineering programs but i have no idea what are some which directly focus on math and have decent pay. Thanks
Hello, I am going in to first year at Laurier as a BBA student and all I hear is co op co op and co op. I was wondering, is co op what makes BBA and without co op is being a BBA student almost useless? Are BBA students still really successful without it?
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!
I applied and got in physical and mathematical sciences intending to specialise in mathematical application in economics and finance. But now I am considering a major in computer sciences. The problem is I do not have priority over an computer science course and I won't be able to register for this course until 7 August. I wanted to ask what chances do I have to getting into this course and how can I improve them.
Also, assuming if I do get into this course, how long does this priority thing is going to bother me? For the duration of my degree or for the first semester only?
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 will start UTSC - Life Sciences this September. I'm a transfer student so I will have enough credits to choose my POSt. I'm trying to decide which one to pursue out of these options. I'm planning to apply to med schools later on, but being realistic, if I cannot make it into a med school, I would like to have an education which would help me to find a decent job in a health-related sector. Does anyone know which of these combinations will give me more options in professional life? Any feedback/comments on these subject POSts? Thanks!
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 and many others on this forum are pursuing a CPA designation and would probably want to work at a big 4 firm. I think it would be beneficial if someone who is currently working there this summer or recently worked there as a student could answer some questions for us.
Hey I'm going into grade 11 next year and was just wondering if the Medical Sciences program at UWO has an early acceptance program. If they do I was wondering around what average you need to be seriously considered for it.
Courses I'm taking next year:
Accounting (11) - taking this in summer
What marks do i need in each course do i need to be considered for early acceptance?
Overall what are some tips out there for preparing for another school year, specifically gr11. Tips to stay motivated, stay doing well, stay involved in the community and just anything about what we could do to start now.
