My main point, and I cannot emphasize this enough, is to be sure to have an alternate career path ready. Only a small percentage of pre-med or pre-law students actually graduate into medical or law school. The acceptance rate is only around 10%, while the attrition rate is very high (75-80%). And unless you make it through med or law school, that biochemistry or polisci degree isn't going to do you much good.
Can someone please help me with their insights or experiences with trying to secure an education line of credit.
I have transitioned from a college after earning my Social Work Diploma and I am now in my second year of University for my undergrad in social work. I have a family consisting of my wife, baby, and I...plus our cat.
I have been trying to secure an education line of credit from CIBC and ATB but they tell me that I do not have enough income. Does this sound ridiculous to anyone? I am in school full-time. I receive funds from bursaries, scholarships and very little from the jobs I have. The bank expects me to make $40,000 a year AND go to school full-time. However, CIBC has given me a credit card with 19.99% interest and a $28,000 limit, but will not grant an education line of credit with 2.99% interest with $15,000 limit. Now does this make sense either...no. I don;t know what to do.
I do not have any family or friends that are able to co-sign a loan, as pretty much everyone I know lives in poverty. I've asked everyone.
Starting to sink, and beginning to feel hopeless :(
I was wondering, if I was actually accepted into McMaster's Health Science program next year (which is long shot, I know) is it possible to do another major along with this program. I was thinking about doing a Mathematics degree (specifically an Actuarial Maths degree). I am good at math and find it easy. Is this possible? If it is allowed, will doing both kill me?
I applied with a university transfer average of 95.3% + several EC's, and a grade 12 average of 80.5%.
By the way, I had a 55 in grade 11 physics, and never took pre-calculus in high school. Nonetheless, I was still able to get A+'s in linear algebra, calculus 1 and 2 in university.
My goal here is to provide students advice, and answer questions concerning the admission process at these universities. Moreover, I would also like to share advice to students with low high school marks on what they can do to get into schools like U of T, UBC, etc.
Edit: I see some of you are confused, I did not apply to any of these universities out of high school. I first went to the university in my province, obtained a 95% average, then applied as a transfer applicant.
So rumour is the first major round of aeo acceptances are going out tomorrow, I have no clue whether or not that is true but I guess this could be a place to post whether or not you got in. You can also post your marks and extra curriculars to help everyone else get an idea of what Ivey is looking for.
I was just wondering if these courses throughout the grade 11 and 12 years will be manageable, I am going for a 90+ average in both years and could anyone recommend study tips? By the way, I want to get into western Richard Ivey the business program and queens

We all know that there is inequality in our world; we need not look to other country's or nations, but among us in our own communities. There must be something we can do, something more. As a challenge to myself, I will find a way everyday to help someone. I may clean the filed at the school across the street; donate extra monies, share my time in the community. I will even bring my wife and baby when I can.
What is the difference between math and financial math? For example waterloo is considered the best math school but laurier also offers math and financial math. So why do people attend math at laurier if waterloo is just down the road? And why for the double degree do you have to take math at waterloo and the business part at laurier?
I just finished gr.11 and I'm going into gr.12, I was just wondering how early acceptances work. What grades do we apply with? Also Im taking summer school for a grade 12 course so hopefully by midterm of first semester I'll have five courses to apply with, but do they look at other grades? My gr.11 marks weren't so good (83 avg). For later acceptances do uni's just look at your grade 12 marks?
I've always wanted to volunteer in Africa for an orphanage or something. I am planning on going in December and I was just wondering if this would count as a good EC to write about for business programs in universities like Queen's, Western, Schulich, Laurier etc. Thank you!
Should I apply for a single or double dorm? I'm a girl. I reaaaallllyyyy don't want to end up with someone weird or someone who steals shit and whatnot.But I'd love to have a friend to go out to eat with at midnight and stuff... but i'm scared they'll be weird!
If I get a single I'm scared of missing out on the university experience... parties, friends, ect.
I know an undergraduate degree is usually sufficient to get a good job in business. However, I don't have the grade 12 math requirements to enter these programs. I plan on doing a BA first and then applying for an MBA after a couple of years of work. My question is, do you think where I go for my undergrad will have any impact on my chances of admission? For example, are a Brock and Mcmaster BA graduate treated equally? I noticed on the class profiles of Western's MBA program that all of the undergraduate schools represented were from top schools (i.e. UofT, Queens, McGill etc.) I should also add I intend to apply to top US schools, if that makes any difference. Any opinions?
I have money in my RESP, but I have no idea how many. When I asked them for it, they said I have to show my proof of enrollment. I was told that was the course schedules that we have. And the problem is, I can't choose my courses till July 10th.
What should I put in the RESP section?? I have to submit it ASAP cause the 60 day deadline is fairly close
