In your post, please include the following:
- Program and post-secondary institution
- Date of application
- Date of offer
- Admission average (Grade 11, Grade 12 first semester- basically whatever was used in determining admission qualifications)
- Province you're applying from
- Any other information you'd like to add

Good luck everyone!!

Is there any notable benefit or advantage of taking Carleton's Bachelor of Public Administration and Policy Management over a BA in something like polisci at a university with a better rep like U of T or McGill?

I currently work at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Assurance. . 

A snapshot of my time at Brock:

-Inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma (the top 10% of Goodman get invited)  
-Did co-ops and internships with 3 different companies in corporate accounting, assurance, tax and risk assurance located in Germany and Canada  
-Participated in a short-term exchange to France  
-Volunteered for the business school's Career Services office, where I critiqued students' resumes

2018 - Who is Applying to Architecture?
As I was finishing up my Carleton supplementary Application, I realized there aren't any threads for architecture applicants this year yet. If you're applying too, tell me where you've applied and where you've heard back from! That way, we can all network with our future classmates and/or scout out the competition.

I've applied to UofT, Carleton, Ryerson and Waterloo, finished my supplementary applications (excluding the Waterloo interview) and been accepted to UofT.

western residences?
hello! i'm going to med sci this fall and need some advice on residences. just a few questions tbh.

1) how are the residences usually split up in terms of learning communities / types of kids (like i think that i heard somewhere that most of the football team is in essex bc facilities are closer or something)?

2) which res buildings hold more parties and which hold less parties (i'm not really a party kid lmao)

3) i know that if your avg is above 95, you get first pick. but, if you and a friend both request each other as roomies, will you 100% get to room with each other?

thank you so much :)

Architecture Admission?
I have applied to Laurentian (Have received an offer of admission that is conditionless) Ryerson, Carleton, and Waterloo (rejected but I've expected such).

Anyone else hear back from the unis yet? I have my Ryerson portfolio evaluation on March the 10th. What should I be expecting?

Parents forcing me to go to a university
So I already decided that I really want to go to Carleton for finance, but my parents really want me to go to York. We've argued many times now about this and they don't budge at all, any advice? I've looked into the Schulich business, and it is a good program, but I seriously do not want to go, and they simply do not listen. I could just listen to them, but j don't want to spend the next 4+ years somewhere I didn't want to be.

What is Ryerson Architecture focused on compared to Laurentian?
I applied to Ryerson, Carleton, UofT and Laurentian 
I don't really know alot of what they are based on, they seem really good though and what I would like. 
I know Carelton is more art than most programs, and UofT is more theory which I don't know if I'd like, I didn't apply to Waterloo but how does Ryerson and Laurentian compare to those 3? 
Mostly I am curious about how the program is different, the kind of people that go there (art students vs science students kinda thing) and how much location matters.
If anybody currently goes to Laurentian as is from more Toronto area, how do you like being in Sudbury? Is the commute to downtown every day bad/tiring or is it okay?
If anybody goes to Ryerson, how is it living in downtown Toronto? I like the city but I don't go often, I think I would like living there though. Sudbury and Toronto are so different, I don't know what is better. 
Any advice helps, thanks!!

Carleton Basketball
How hard is it to get selected to play for the Carleton University Basketball Team? I heard they are one of the best in Canada. Any Ideas? I have been playing basketball since I was 10 Years old. So I have a lot of experience and practice.
Carleton or Western for political science?
Hey all,

I’ve been accepted to both UWO and Carleton for political science and I am trying to figure out which school would be the best choice for my program. If anyone has some input on this, I’d really appreciate it!

BPAPM VS. BA - Law School
My ultimate end goal is Law School - Should I take my undergrad in PoliSci at Queens or PAPM at Carleton? Generally which one would be easier to maintain a higher GPA?

Keep in mind PAPM requires a french credit and I know beginner french. I am afraid this requirement will kill my GPA at Carleton

moving away for school?
Hi Friends!

I'm really torn between going to school within Ontario (I live here) and attending school on the east coast. Either way I'll be living away from home but I'm looking for a sense of what I should expect from living a plane ride away versus a car ride away, and maybe some advice for how to choose? 

Here's some info about me...
- Applying for business with scholarships
- big fan of extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, etc)
- I'm really close with my friends (obviously) and I'd love for them to visit me/visit them at their universities
-I have a lot of younger friends who I'll also want to see back at my high school
- Seeing my family (extended) isn't a huge deal for me because we're not all that close (we only get together for holidays)
- I would be able to come home for reading weeks and Christmas break if I were to head to the East Coast, and all of that + Thanksgiving and some weekends if I wanted to if I stay in Ontario
- Money isn't really a huge deal, however I think cost of living would be better out east (?)
- I love a good adventure, but I don't really want to be too lonely and I won't know a single person out east

Thanks so much!!
