Applied Economics vs Honours Econcomics WLU
I was wondering what the difference between the two is at Wilfred Laurier University. I cannot switch into honors second year from applied because I do not meet the requirements for Advanced Functions by 5%, Honors economics offers co-op while applied does not. Also, I believe that Honors economics is a bachelor of economics whereas applied is just a BA.The only way I can switch into this program is if I upgrade my mark by taking advance functions again for 2-4 weeks during the summer. Is the honors economics program worth it?
Brock BAcc Coop Vs Laurier BBA Coop vs Schulich ??
How is Brock universities BAcc program? Especially if you want to get a CPA designation. Is it good? Do good companies like the Big 4 recruit from Brock?? How is it compared to other schools like Schulich, Laurier or other programs that are good in Accounting??

This is for CPA/Accounting ONLY.
Getting acceptances from universities (105 Application )
Hi, so I graduated from high school last year, and decided to take a year off. So I applied to York and Ryerson university and still havent heard anything from them. Just wanted to know whether anyone has more info on this.
Which University would give me the best GPA (for Medical School)
Guelph
UofT
McGill
Trent
York
Ottawa
Western Ontario
Brock
Ryerson
Waterloo
Laurier

Now I was considering Guelph, Laurier, Western, or Ottawa.
Are they better (for GPA purposes and for academic reasons) than schools such as UofT and McGill (which are well known for ruining people's GPAs)?

So far, every admissions officer has told me the same thing; they do not care which unviersity you do your undergrad in, if your GPA is high, and your MCAT is good, you will definitely get in.

So my question is, which school will give me a high GPA, and best prepare me for the MCAT (based on program and opportunities)?
YORKU COLLEGE TRANSFER: RESIDENCE OR OFF CAMPUS?!
Im coming from Mohawk College for BAS accounting. Should i stay in Residence or off campus? Ive already signed up for rez but im seeing <$500/ month close to york :S
Thoughts on these marks for admission?
I'm planning to pursue and get accepted into a Computer Science course. My main 2 univerities I want to join is University of Waterloo and University of Toronto. I am still in Grade 11 and the ones marked with an asterik are still not final marks and can improve or "deimprove." I just want to know the  thoughts of others and what I should improve on to make sure I get an acceptence letter from my 2 wanted universities. I live in Edmonton, Alberta if that is needed and our Diploma Exams (grade 12 finals from province) are worth 30% now except for Math 30-1 because I took it in Grade 11 where they are worth still 50% (AP yo)

English 20-1 - 72%* (I think I can get 75 on it by the end if my teacher is cool)
Social Studies 20-1AP - 75%* (Uh..probably lower. Social is dumb)
Math 20-1AP - 92%
Math 30-1AP - 85%* (Diploma is worth 50%. Diploma is all M.C and N.R. I feel good to get it to atleast 88%)
Physics 20-1AP - 83%
Chemistry 20-1AP - 90%* (I can get this to 92-93% most likely)
Programming 20 - In Alberta, these courses are options and are marked basen on 5 modules so not an entire course. So I had 5 modules and a final project (optional module) which basically averaged from 99%-100%. I also finished a Grade 12 module in this time. I plan to take Programming 30AP next year so I will be writing the CollegeBoard Exam for Computer Science and I will be planning to take the Iverson Exam as well in University of Alberta.

I'll also try to take the Euclid Exams from UofW if possible. Other than that, for Grade 12, I've dropped AP in Physics and Social. Math 31AP is still a go (Calculus for Ontario somewhat) and thats about it. Hope to see some thoughts later on.
Summer School! Quick response would be nice!
Should I take careers and civics in the summer as an online course? 

Is it worth it? Will I be wasting my time?

If I should take it, then what other class do you suggest instead?

Nedd your help guys !!!!!
Computer Science Versus Software Engineering What is the difference? And which one would be the best for someone who don't really care about the hardware...

Ranking Canadian Architecture Schools
I'm looking to compile a list of the best graduate architecture programs across the country. This can include any school that offers a MArch, MLA, Master of Urban Planning/Design, etc. Through research, these seem to be all the schools:

McGill
UBC
University of Toronto
University of Calgary
University of Guelph
Dalhousie
University of Waterloo
Universite Laval
Carleton
Universite de Montreal
University of Manitoba
Ryerson

I'm trying to see if I can sort this into a list. Obviously it won't be perfect, as some schools offer more programs/specializations than others, and no ranking system can be perfect. I'm just trying to gather a rough idea, as I can't find too much online.

UofT or Queens for Mineral Engineering?
So I just got my acceptance to Queens engineering today after waiting and got waitlisted for a while. In the meantime I already accepted UofT and I'm wondering if I should still go for Queens. What would be a better option? Thanks for your replies. 

Queens:
- Away from home, my household is kinda annoying lol
- internship
- beautiful campus

UofT:
- saves me money forgoing residence 
- PEY
- its apparent prestige
