1st Year Ryerson Engineering AMA Thread!
Well, the title says it all
To all the grade 12s, I was in the same boat as you last year, wondering about admissions, career and so on. But I am finally onto my next stage of life, studying engineering. Woohoo (have midterms soon, so mixed emotions! :/ )
Anyways, If you guys have any questions related to admissions, student life, commuting, programs, and so on, feel free to post them below. I'll try to answer as fast as I can.

Do I have a chance
I went through alot throughout highschool which resulted in me barley going, my marks in gr 11 were 60’s & 70’s I got through that stuff and decided university is what I really wanted to persue, I have done 3/ my 6 top courses and my average is currently an 87 I’m currently enrolled in the next three. 
I just wanna know do universities look down at marks like that? I know if you have been through certain things you can write letters or fill out an application explaining the gap in your marks but, I dont really want to do that because I feel like there are people who have been through worse, I guess my question is should i consider filling one of those out or should I just let my marks do the talking

Choosing the Right University?
How do you pick which University to go to? I got accepted to all programs I applied for so it is not possible to rule out one that way. I am just looking for advice on how to choose. Or how others like me are making their decisions?

Alternate Offer
I applied to the biomedical science program at University of Guelph but I was offered a conditional offer instead. Is there any chance that I'll get an acceptance to biomedical science?

Edit: I meant alternate offer!

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 :)

McMaster Or Guelph for Physics?
I've been reading and looking into it and I've narrowed it down to two options, I would like to go to either McMaster or Guelph to study physics/chemical physics. I'm interested in co-op and both schools seem to have pretty good co-op opportunities available for physics, plus research opportunities and such. Which school do you guys think is a better school to study physics at? Like which school has the better facilities for physics, better opportunities for learning and experience as well as opportunities for co-op and research, beter faculty, etc etc... Also which school has a nicer campus, nicer residences, and better general public facilities like libraries, eateries, and common buildings/areas? Even if you aren't studying physics (helps if you're still in a stream of science or engineering but it doesn't matter) what is your opinion on the two universities?

McMaster, Queen's, or Guelph for physics/chem??
I have applied for similar programs in Physical and Chemical Sciences at McMaster, Guelph, and Queens, and I have already recieved an acceptance from McMaster. I've been looking into the programs at each university, as well as the facilities, campus, and student life among other factors, but can't seem to come to a definite decision on where I want to go. Which of these three universities would have the best experience for a program in chemical/physical sciences? I eventually want to major in physics. Also what are some opinions on what the co op and research opprotunities are like at each of these universities? And thoughts on the general student life (residence, food, student assistance/accommodation, things to do in spare time in and around campus)?

Brock BBA (Goodman) or Guelph management economics and finance (guaranteed coop)?
Having trouble picking between these two. I haven't heard too much about Goodman, but since I want to go into investment banking or a similar job in the finance field is the business school a better option? Thanks for the help guys
