Moving from high school to University is a big challenge, ask me about adjustments or what to expect and I will do my best to help you. Even if you are not going to the University of Windsor, Im sure alot of nursing students have the same issues, feel free to ask me anything :)
Are any systems undergraduates lurking around these forums? I've done a bit of research on what this program actually is, but still don't really understand it. From what I grasp, it deals with designing and managing all kinds of engineering systems?
Can anyone give me a bit more detail on what this program is and what its like? Also wondering if it is/can be related to computer/IT related career paths since that's what my main interest is in.
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question but is it possible to go from an 79 to an 86 in advanced functions? I was at an 83 and midterm (close to my goal) then I did so bad on an assignment, got about a 38 on it. I got plenty of 100s, high 90s and high 80s, but occassionally got 60s in a section which brought my overall mark down. I believe that I have the capability to work hard and do good, but is it possible for me to get a 86? I think i have two units left(probably 2-4 quizzes and 2 tests) and my exam which is worth 30% of my overall mark. With first semester almost gone, can I bring my mark up on time? :(
queen's acceptance starts in dec but does anybody actually get accepted then? and is it just based off grade 11 marks until they get your sem 1 finals? AND do they only give early acceptance to people with really high averages or to everyone who meets their admission requirements/averages and has a decent pse?
I am third year student at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. I did a Bachelor's degree (Hons. BSc) in Biochemistry with a specialization of pathology of human disease at the University of Western Ontario. My GPA was 3.91 when I applied for pharmacy school.
I am a gr 12 student looking into criminology, I have the option to do 2 years of Criminal Justice studies to recieve a diploma and continue to do 2 more years to recieve a bachelor of arts degree, is it worth recieveing the diploma or is it better to apply for the bachelors degree out of the gate?
I understand that it's hard to find jobs in some fields. I'm sure almost everyone on here does as well. It seems that every post i see, there's always some anonymous commenter discouraging them and telling them "good luck working at starbucks/mcdonalds/burger king/etc." I just saw something that said the only useful degrees were engineering and computer science. Do you think that Engineers and Comp. Sci majors can do every job that our complex society needs? No, they can't. Yes, it may be hard to find a high paying job with certain degrees but who are you to assume that making money is all someone cares about? Coming from the home of a single mother who makes a little over 50k a year, I can tell you that having an average paying job isn't hell like people on here make it out to be. I would never go against what i aspire to do based on the amount of money I'd start off making.
It just seems that some people are so dead-set on tearing people's goals down on here and I just wanted to let people know that their degree isn't "useless" if it doesn't get them a job paying 100k off the bat.
I applied for Western Medical sciences (Pharmacology and Physiology) and McMaster Science (Biology) and U of T (life science). If my term 1 marks are the following will I have a big chance of being accepted? I don't know what the normal averages are so I'm a bit nervous. I am from BC btw so its top 4 courses (don't know how they choose it but these are my best courses)
