Carleton Engineering Acceptance
Hello everyone, 

         I was wondering what is the realistic average FOR A FOR SURE acceptance into Civil Engineering at Carleton, also into their Comp Science or software engineering. I know at their website it says that the ranges of average admission is 75%-85%-above. I know that this averages is varies on some factors such as the amount of students apply and the competition. My question is what is the realistic average to get into their Civil and last years cut off? 

    I hope someone will be able to give a me precise answers, thank you!

I found that these threads really helped me when choosing the schools I would apply to and eventually attend, as I was getting the point of view of a current student. A little about me, I am in the Honours Math program studying Stats with a concentration in Actuarial Science, I also live in Residence.

Course Balance
Hey, so far this semester I have the most critical subjects that are necessary for the university I'm planning to go to (applying to UofT, Waterloo, Carleton, and uOttawa) as I'm a grade 12 student currently. I just need a few tips for the current year I'm in as my target for the marks I want is 95% + in each course, as well as, I'm looking forward to increasing my extracurricular involvement around the school/community and get a part-time job.

The courses I have this semester are: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (taking a spare too)

Next semester are: Biology, Calculus and Vectors, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science

Any tips or thoughts?

Software Engineering - University of Ottawa or Carleton University

Best university for getting into med school/a high GPA?
Hi, I'm a grade 12 student and I'm trying to decide on a good university program and school for getting into med school. I heard that universities like U of T and McGill make it difficult to get a high GPA as it is really competitive. I am interested in McGill, McMaster, U Of Waterloo & U of Ottawa. Where do you think is the best university for keeping up a high GPA and getting into med school? And are there any programs similar to McMaster's health science?

Good schools for Biomedical Engineering?
I'm in grade 12 and will soon be applying for programs. I knows what program I want to go in but I'm having difficulty choosing schools.  Though I know I want to go to McMaster Integrated Biomedical Engineering and Helath Sciences program, but I need 2 more choices. Any suggestions?
What job options are there for people who major in international development?
My question also extends to policy management, global and international studies and public affairs. I generally like these areas of study and would prefer to study in at least one of them. However, I have heard that when it comes to securing jobs, there's a vague idea of success. If I studied in one of these fields, have a specialization and do co-op, am I guaranteed a job after I graduate? Or would I just be wasting my time?

English Marks
So I took majority of my grade 12 courses last year and finished with an 80 in english. My other marks include a 95, 93, 88 and 83. I am also taking three courses this year that will hopefully be able to boost my top 6 average.
My question is, do you think it would be a good idea to re do english? I'm applying for social science so it's the only pr but I had no intentions of taking anything second semester...
