Ryerson accounting & finance
For a friend, I want to know generally with what kind of averages do students apply to this program @ Ted rogers school of management? Like is it mostly students with 90+ averages because my friend is currently struggling with math and she is trying to reach 75% by the end of first semester but all her other courses she is doing well.

University Admissions - Chemical Engineering, Life Sciences, Biomedical Engineering
I have been worried about university admissions and if my average is good enough to get into the programs that I am applying to. My first option is Chemical Engineering at Ryerson, Biomed at Ryerson, and Life Sciences at Uoft. My average is about an 85 or 86, and my Grade 11 was really bad (68%). What are the chances that I get accepted into each program?

Also, do any of those programs require anything other than my marks?
High School Class of 2018 Offers of Admission
Now that school's back in full force and university applications are open, I thought I'd make this application thread so that people can see when people get accepted, where they applied, their averages, etc.

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!!

You can share...
1) What school(s) you`re applying to?
2) What other programs are you applying to as a backup?
3) What overall average are you aiming for at the end of the year?

Hoping for a 90 average this year.

Ryerson is getting a law school set to open in 2020

After a thorough review, the Common Law Program Approval Committee of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada has granted preliminary approval of a proposed new law program at Ryerson University. In approving the proposed program the Federation’s Canadian Common Law Program Approval Committee identified three concerns that it will monitor in subsequent reviews.  

The Approval Committee has a mandate to determine whether a proposed law school program would produce graduates competent for admission to law society bar admission programs. All approved Canadian common law programs must adhere to a National Requirement set by the Federation and the law societies that outlines the knowledge and skills competencies that applicants for entry to the bar admission programs in the Canadian common law jurisdictions must possess.  

Until it produces its first graduates, a program that complies with the National Requirement can be granted preliminary approval only and will be subject to regular reviews. The concerns that will be monitored by the Approval Committee in these reviews relate to Ryerson’s faculty complement, program funding resources, and physical resources available to faculty and staff.

You can follow more here - http://lawstudents.ca/forums/topic/46124-ryerson-law-by-2020-letter-of-intent/?page=8

Let's just say that lawyers and law students are not taking well to this news at all. Tuition is going to be set at 20k and if they are not approved for provincial funding, then tuition will be hiked to make up that difference. 

The curriculum involves having no electives until the 3rd year and being required to take courses in entrepreneurship and coding (which lawyers on the forum find to be pointless academic courses for emerging lawyers).

My personal opinion is that we have more than enough lawyers and law schools. Why are we not getting more dental schools and medical schools?

What Business programs should I apply to?
Right now Im currently interest in Lauriers BBA, Brock's BBA, and Ryersons Bcomm (either accounting or management). I just wanna know if these school are good. Right now im only limiting myself to 3. I am retaking a functions course next semester cause my current mark in it isn't amazing, so I cant take calc pretty much, that why I ruled out Queens, rotman, and ivey etc. Also I've heard that laurier offers BA economics and accounting in you dont get into BBA but I'll probably be going to brock or ryerson if I dont get Lauier bba. If anyone is in these current programs, could you help me with knowing which is the best.

civil engineering university thread
Hey guys! I was just hoping to start this thread for students applying to engineering programs in universities so if u got an acceptance or applied somewhere could you please tell us your average and where u applied :)
Not sure
I'm not sure what to do, I want to have a degree in Computer Science and I cannot get into McMaster for Computer Science because the average is way too high for me. I'm having a difficult time deciding on where I should go I was thinking of going to U of T mississauga for computer Science but i heard the tuition is very pricey and I would want to go to York or Ryerson but they're very far from hamilton and I dont think its a realistic everyday thing. I was thinking of going to Mohawk College first and then get a degree in Software Engineering from McMaster but i'm not sure if that will be a good idea and I do not want to take a student loan because i do not want to be in debt ( my parents have a certain amount saved up for me). So my question is, should I get a student loan and live outside of home and be in debt or take the cheap way out and go through college and then try to get into Mac for software engineering.
for information technologies
I am interested in the program that the University of Toronto and york university is offering for information technologies and they are asking for the mid to high 70s for the average requirements. right now I have mid-70s for average is it possible for me to get into the university

Top 6 need to include all prerequisites?
The other day I was talking to a ryerson representative and he mentioned that my top 6 don't need to include my prerequisites as long as I have completed them with a grade of 75+. I was wondering if this applies to the York and Western computer science program. Thanks.
