Changed my mind?
Hey guys, I need some advice from people who went or are going through the same thing as me.

I have applied to various business programs at schools in Canada, but I have had a sudden change in heart and I want to pursue something else. I am thinking of some Health Science programs but I have never taken a biology course, so I have a couple of questions.

1. Do you have any career counsellors that you would recommend?
2. Do you know how I could pursue Health Science within University without taking biology in high school? Are there any introduction courses I can take in my first year before switching my major?
3. Is it easy to transfer within faculties in a given university?
4. Has anyone been through the same thing? Is there someone who can possibly guide me through this?

Oh, additional comment! The reason I have changed my mind about taking Business within university is that I am currently studying for my IB exams and I realize how much I do not enjoy studying both Business Management and Economics. I have felt like this throughout the courses, but I thought it might just be me not enjoying the teaching style or something. I guess I was trying to play with my mind. I have contacted a career counsellor but I was wondering if anyone had one that was particularly good.

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!!

Scholarships
Hey, so I'm going to be in grade 12 next year and am thinking of applying to some scholarships next year. I am in partial IB this year but have decided to drop it all for next year. Would this affect my chances of getting scholarships such as Loran or others????

Learning Languages
Hello,

I am a high school student right now (grade 11) and am really interested in learning languages. Currently, I know 4 fluently (because of my diverse background) including english and I am hoping to add French and Arabic to the list. I have been learning french in school since grade 4 and can say that now I am decent at reading and writing it but terrible at oral skills. I get completely lost when people are speaking it because they sound nothing like to what I am used to hearing. As for Arabic, I know very basic things and can read it all from a very early age. I just wanted to hear all your experiences with language learning and see what tips you all have for becoming fluent in these two languages

Thanks!

Early Admissions Application
I'm currently a Ontario student in grade 12 and I'm really confused about early admissions. My grade 11 average was a 86% for 8 courses but my top six is 90%. However my top six don't include two of my pre recs for engineering. My guidance counsellor even told me those marks were too low for early admission but I've seen people already get accepted this early with about the same averages. Are my marks too low? Especially cause i want to get into engineering or architecture. And when applying for early admissions do they take your six courses and do they have to be your pre recs or can they just be your top six?

Starting a Key Club
Hi everyone. I am a high school student and I want to start a Key Club at my school for the upcoming school year. We do have some service clubs at my school but they do not do much. I have been doing research for starting the club but could not find out all the information I needed. So, if anyone has been previously involved in one or knows about Key Club, I would appreciate it if you could answer a couple questions for me :)
 1. What does it mean to charter a club and how is it done? 
 2. Would it cost student members anything to be a part of the club? 
3. How do I make it a part of Key Club International? 
4. How do I get the club to be sponsored to be sponsored by the local Kiwanis club? 
5. Is it possible for a student to start the club? 

 I might have more questions later but just these for now. I would love some help to clear some of my confusion.

Youth Groups
Hello. I am a high school student and was wondering if there were any ways for youth to get involved with human rights NGOS such as UNESCO or UNICEF by means other than volunteering? Are there any youth council, conference, or ambassador opportunities?

Thanks in advance

Is UBCO a good school to prepare for the Phd Programs?
I am from Toronto, Ontario and I have accepted by UBCO (Bsc) and UManitoba (Bsc).

Now I just found out UBCO does not offer some significant courses that may help me to get admitted to PhD programs, like functional analysis, group theory and time series analysis etc.
While Umanitoba offers wide range courses( as far as I know, Umanitoba's third year's math courses even a little bit more than UBCO's total math courses, and UBCO only offers 5 statistic courses this year)

So can you guys please give me some advice that should I choose UBCO or Umanitoba? Or I need to wait for a year then applying for those universities in Ontario(I did not apply for them this year)?

Please and Thank you!

And sorry I did not find UBCO tag...





Queen's University or University of Manitoba?
I'm planning to go into medicine and I got accepted to Queen's with a large scholarship. Now the cost to attend Queen's or stay in my own province (Manitoba) are the same. Is it worth it to go to Queen's for undergrad? Does it really matter where you go for undergrad? Plus I already have connections in Manitoba for ECs, volunteering and stuff. Apparently Queen's is super competitive. WWYD?

ASK ME ANYTHING - Finished First Year - U of Manitoba, BBA, Actuarial Mathematics Major
Hello,
I just finished my first year. I am studying business at the University of Manitoba, but I also was accepted to McGill(science and business) but due to my actuarial major, I turned down McGill for what I believed to be a more structured major(McGill seemed to have poor resources and few actuarial classes). McGill is recognized on the SOA(society of actuaries) but not on the CIA (Canadian Institute of Actuaries, http://www.cia-ica.ca/about-us/actuaries/careers/universities). Essentially my choice to the U of M was entirely up to me. 

I've already taken 12 courses (two classes ahead), and I have a 3.83 GPA. As well, I have taken month classes, and have an idea how university runs. 
I also went to an immersion high school and switched to full english university. 


I think that I might have some informational insight about choosing the university programs, as well as BBA/BComm help/knowledge. I can also try and help other math or business majors(or classes), or speak about the actuary plan. 



Thanks and good luck to everyone on their studies!!!

Taking 5 courses? - New 2nd year student
Hello,
I am a student at the U of Manitoba, studying actuarial mathematics. I want to hear your opinion about taking 5 classes at a time for me. I would be taking something like 4-5 math classes at once (accounting, probability, multivariable calc, actuarial) as well as another course. 
I finished my first year with a 3.83 GPA, taking 5 courses in fall and another 5 in winter, than one in spring. (but i did one in high school so I've completed 12 courses so far)
Is it doable? What about stress levels?

Thanks

Is anyone here trying to decide between Queen's University and the University of Manitoba?
I'm planning to do LifeSciences and then go into medicine. I live in Manitoba and am not sure where to go...

How are you deciding which university to attend next year?
So, as offers of admission start to roll out, I want to know (mostly because I am stressed about making the decision myself): how is everyone going to decide what university to attend next year? What universities do you have to decide between? Is cost, being able to live on residence vs commuting going to make the difference for you? Or is it something about the university itself which will, whether it's the prestige, the programs offered, the family legacy, etc.
For me personally, I have to decide between a few schools more close by - UBC, UVIC, SFU - and a few schools I applied to out of province - uOttawa, York and U of T.

What are the Top 3 Medical Schools in Canada?
Title says it all; what do you think? Across the nation, there are 17 medical programs that each has their own unique characteristics that make it desirable to curtain individuals. In the larger picture, this leads to curtain levels of student satisfaction despite the regulated standard that is necessary for granting an MD in Canada. Each year, MacLean’s makes their voice heard with their infamous rankings (http://www.macleans.ca/education/unirankings/university-rankings-2017-medicaldoctoral/).  

Despite the fact that McGill University, the University of Toronto, and the University of British Columbia being ranked as the top 3 Medical Schools over the years, it is evident in the MacLean rankings that their student satisfaction is fairly low each year. Likewise, the University of Calgary and McMaster offer a 3 year programs which may attract students interested in completing their degree a year early.  

Overall, the CaRMS residency matches each year are balanced with all programs doing well. Taking this all together, what would you say are the Top 3 Medical Schools in Canada?  

Check out some of these resources and have your say in the comments below: https://afmc.ca/sites/default/files/documents/en/Publications/AdmissionsBook2016-Final-EN.pdf http://www.oxfordseminars.ca/MCAT/mcat_profiles.php http://www.carms.ca/en/data-and-reports/r-1/reports-2016/

Pharmacy School
Is pharmacy worth pursuing? I heard that its hard to find a job as a pharmacist these days but I still would really like to go into the profession? Are there any current pharmacy students here that can give some insight to this? Also, how hard is pharmacy school once you get in? (compared to undergrad) How stressful would you say it is? What is your typical schedule when you're in pharmacy school? Thanks.
