1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.

Hello everybody! I'm approaching senior year High School and interested in applying to business/finance/accounting programs. What I have noticed here in southern Ontario, is that university cutoffs for these programs are very competitive, (85+ averages), whereas for college degree programs they are minimum 65%. Some of Seneca's programs are even CPA accredited and offer mandatory co-op. Say I want my CPA designation (which I'm looking into), my question is, what are the pros and cons of a college degree, and will opting for college degree programs be any better or worse than university degree programs in the long run?
ok so i just finished my first semester of grade 11 and mt marks were not good at all.
76% in health care
68& in english
70% in drama
and 50% in chemistry
I'm scared that these marks will affect my chances of getting into nursing, kinesiology or dental school just because of one semester of grade 11. i don't want to do early acceptance, so I'm not sure if these marks really matter. I've also heard that nursing at lakehead university is very easy to get into for nursing. can someone give me some advice.
So I've seen these type of posts back in high school and it has helped me gain a lot of insight of particular majors. So a bit about me, I am a first year nursing major at the York/Seneca collaborative program. I started clinical rotations already and I think I have adequate knowledge about my program to answer questions about it. I can talk about placements, how schedules are made, GPA requirements to stay in the program, average in getting into this program, any misconceptions etc. Leave your questions below and I'll be happy to answer your questions.
I'm a 24 years old female from Switzerland and I'm going to Toronto next year to do an university pathway program at a language school (April - August). After that, I'm planning to go to a college with something like an one year Art Fundamentals program, which covers many fields like graphic design, animation, photography etc. Because I don't know which subject I want to focus on yet.
I've graduated with an vocational diploma in business and I've been working in this field ever since. So I don't really have any academic background in art.
But I've been able to be creative in the past at work, like designing Xmas cards, calendar and I also like drawing, photography, making firefox persona in my free time. I really like art so I want to change my career and I want to do that abroad, as I want to travel and widen my horizons.
I've been researching for a long time and found these colleges with basic art programs:
George Brown College: Art and Design Foundation Program (1 year)
Seneca College: Art Fundamentals (8 months)
Humber College: Art Foundation (1 year)
Centennial College: Art and Design Fundamentals (1 year)
Sheridan: Art Fundamentals (1 year) OCAD: First-Year Art
Humber sounds good, so I'm planning to apply - but does anyone know more about the other colleges? I would choose based on their courses but an overall experience or opinion about the college itself would help me a lot to make a decision as well. Tbh I can't finance the studies, but I will still apply and try to get scholarship/credit and work on the side to make it happen because I really want it.
Sorry for my long post D: but I would be very glad if you could share your opinion or tips etc. It's my first time going alone abroad. Thank you so much!
i want to apply to Seneca's BScN program, but i want to do clinical nursing in first year. Can anyone confirm if Seneca does clinical all 4 years? i tried emailing their website but it didn't give me a proper answer. Thankss
Hi! I'm currently a grade 12 student interested in nursing. I have a 94% avg from grade 11 but my grade 12 avg isn't looking too hot. Most of my required courses are in the high 80s to low 90s. My avg will probably end up in 85%-90%.
I'm planning to apply to the nursing program at McMaster, York-Seneca, Ryerson-GB, and Ryerson-CC. My backup programs are Life Science at Waterloo and maybe Biology at UofT. McMaster is my first choice but I honestly don't think I'll do well on the CASPer test.
What are my chances of getting into McMaster if I do mediocre on CASPer? How long should the answers be? How did you study for CASPer? Any advice? What are my chances of getting accepted into one of my choices? What are my chances of getting rejected by all of them? What other schools (located in Toronto) should I apply to? Is it a bad idea to commute to school (approximately 1.5hrs) while enrolled in nursing?
I'm pretty stressed out over this so any answer is greatly appreciated!
Idk what I'm doing wrong with my studying but I can't get high marks in math, maybe i should study 2-3 days ahead instead of the day before. I'm not sure.
Over the next two weeks I have 10 tests to do, and I can't pull off a 94 average for top business schools such as Schulich, Queens, Ivey and Rotman. Maybe if i studied ahead i might but its hard to change study habits.
I know York BAS, Ryerson Bcomm or BBA ( forgot) is easier to get in. Can you guys recommend me other programs that are in Toronto?
Hi, i'm currently a student a WIlfrid Laurier University in the Computer Science BSc program, and i'm thinking of transferring Seneca for police foundations to pursue a career in law enforcement. The only reason I got into compsci was due to the pressure from my strict asian parents, and now i'm in a program i don't like, with my GPA in the trash (my current grades are in the 40-60 range). I was wondering if I my current University grades would affect me if I decided to drop out and apply to Seneca for police foundations. Thanks!
hey guys, just want to know what you guys think about doing health sci (regular) at UW compared to any other uni. at both uni's the cost is basically the same and I will be living away from home. I heard that faculties other than eng and cs don't really stand out but is going to uw for health studies worth it? in terms of opportunities and reputation among employers and future career networking? anyone at AHS at waterloo want to give their opinion?
I have lived and worked in onterio for the past two years and a half by the time I start school. I have a ohip card and a onterio Photo ID card. I got the Ohip last September and the photo ID card in like April. I am a independent student. My dad files my taxes though and just files all his kids under his Alberta adress dose this effect my eligablity?
I am currently living at home going to trent uni (bio honours) and also accepted a transfer to waterloo (reg health studies). I need to withdraw from one uni and 'seal the deal' with the other ASAP. My mind was set on the transfer to UW but after seeing threads on how undergrad school doesn't matter for grad school, going to uw only for coop, and I should try saving money living at home, I am stuck on the decision if I should just stay at Trent or transfer. I also know that health studies at UW has a very large course load and not enough space for transfer students like me to take elective to explore other courses. please help me and tell me the pros and cons of each uni and if its best to keep all my credits/GPA and stay at Trent and have the option for double majors or go to UW. (PROS CONS about faculty, social life, city etc)
Hey everyone, which do you guys think has the better nursing program? Humber/UNB or Seneca/York?
I'm having a hard time deciding which one i should choose. I like Humber/UNB because i heard from my friend (she just finished her first year in RN) that students there are not competitive and its closer to my place(1hr and 30-40mins commute, going there). This means that my placements would also be close to me. But I also like Seneca/York because I would have to res meaning i won't have to wake up really early just to get to class. Also bec I honestly think i would focus more. If I'm my house im usually distracted.
