Tips for Ivey?
I'm going into Grade 12 and what would be some tips into increasing my chances for Ivey. 

Unfortunately, I go to a small high school where there is basically no business club and no DECA. I have a part-time job, I play a couple instruments and I have volunteering experience (over 200 hours). I just lack business and leadership ECs, and I feel like I am at a disadvantage. What could I do to make up for those ECs?

My Grade 11 average was a 90 and I took Advanced Functions this summer and I finished with a 91. I should project an average for Grade 12 around 91-93%. I have good writing capabilities so the essays should not be an issue. 

This might sound crazy, but I want Ivey as a backup if things don't work out in order to heading to medical school. If I don't get a 4.0 in my first year, I can just get an Ivey HBA instead.

Is it possible for me to do extremely well in Grade 12?
I'm finally done a really rough year. I'm finished with a 76% average, and I know this won't get me anywhere. 

My Grade 12 courses are as follows:

Advanced Functions
Data
Religion (Catholic School)

Economics 
International Business
English 

I have a spare in both semesters so I can ensure I get the highest possible marks. I want to get into a business program but I'm not sure if it's possible to get an average in the high 80s after a terrible Grade 11 year. 

Thank you for your time.

does it rly matter where u do ur undergrad.... lol
i know it may seem weird... but does it? if you have the aspirations of mba, that would depend mostly on work experience, co-op, internships, and connections. 

what im trying to say is, is bas/bcom REALLY that different from bba?
