I am a first year BBA student attending Wilfrid Laurier University, I'm here to answer any questions and clarify any doubts! AMA!!
Hey everyone, 

I figured y'all grade 12 students should have the chance to ask any questions about universities. I'm a registered boother for the University and I can definitely answer any questions about residence life and living alone in general, also feel free to ask about course work/load and basically any question that pops up in your mind! I was in your position last year and I definitely understand the stress that comes with grade 12, just know that it will all work out :)   

I also applied to: • Ivey 
                              • QComm 
                              • Rotman 
                              • Schulich 
                              • Mac Commerce
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.

Incoming Commerce/Business 2021 Student
Hey guys! I've been seeing a couple of these incoming student posts, so I thought I'd do one for Business/Commerce in general.

I applied to York Schulich, UofT Rotman, UTM Commerce, Queen's Commerce, WLU BBA, and Western BMOS + Ivey AEO and got into all of them. I ended up choosing Queen's Commerce.

So feel free to reply to this post if you have any questions about any of the above universities or programs. I used this website a ton when I was applying so I thought I'd try to help some 2022 kids :) I also researched a lot for the above schools.

Laurier BBA Acceptances 2018
It's super early in the year but this thread is for Laurier BBA acceptances. Comment when you get accepted and what your average was. :))
Is McMaster Boring?
How is the social life at McMaster. I'm not asking about the education and courses just strictly asking about the social scene. From what i've heard about McMaster is that it can get pretty dull quickly. Could you tell me about the social scene of McMaster in comparison to UWO, Laurier and Guelph. Thank you.

BBTM NEED HELP
Hey there guys, I am very interested in the BBTM degree offered at Ryerson an Laurier. I was wondering if I could do some sort of Accounting and BBTM at the same time.
BBTM
Hey there guys, I was wondering what you can do with a BBTM. I am interested in this degree as it has automatic co op at Laurier and was wondering what you'd do with this. I would also like to know about the job prospects along with if I can do some sort of accounting degree or commerce with this and what marks people got from last year to get in. This info would be a major life saver and will help me with my future! Thanks!
Will this affect my acceptance? HELP!
I'm currently taking both a course in school AND online. It was too late to drop my day school course so I had no choice but to take them both at the same time. If I do horrible in my day school (get 60-70% as a final mark), but I do exceptionally well in my online school (90%+), will this affect my acceptance to universities like Queens, Western, or Laurier, EVEN THOUGH they say they use the highest/most recent attempt's mark?

tl;dr, will universities care at all if they see a low mark on my transcript even though it's repeated with a very good mark? (they claim they only take the highest/recent one, but I'm not sure if a low mark will make them think twice about accepting me)

Laurier double degree with computer science and business
Hi, I was wondering if anyone had more information about the double degree offered at Laurier with computer science and business (not the program that is combined with University of Waterloo, the program that is only at Laurier). Does anyone know the average admission average? If I have an 86-87 average and strong extracurricular's do I have a chance of getting in? Any and all information regarding this program is greatly appreciated, thanks!
Laptops
Hey everyone! I am sure that some of us are looking in the market for a new laptop. I want to make this thread so current laptop owners can share what laptops they have and how it is going for them.

Is Brock BAcc Worth it Without Co-op?
The title is pretty self explanatory. I know the Brock BAcc program with co-op is pretty good but is it worth it if you don't do co-op? Obviously it wouldn't be as good, but would it still be a good option?

Can't leave Toronto
Hey, I'm a senior in high school and I don't know what to do. Originally I had planned on going to either Ivey, Queens, or Laurier, but due to certain issues, I have to stay in Toronto. I am expecting a 91/92 average and I'm worried that if I don't get into Schulich, I will have to a school where I will be presented with fewer opportunities especially considering I want to major/specialize in Finance. Anyone in a similar situation where although they have the marks to get into a certain school, they are unable to go because "it's too far".

WLU Admissions
Is Wilfrid Laurier known as a good computer science school. It says that the admission range is Mid 70's. Would that mean that a low to mid 80 would be good enough? Thanks!

I need some help with choosing my program.
Hey there guys, I am currently in grade12 and could really use some help in choosing a potential program I want to apply for. I am looking to be a tax lawyer/accountant/economist... Something along those lines. My grades might not be the highest, but I feel like I am a hard worker (my opinion). Here is what my grade situation is looking like:
Advanced Functions: 78
Accounting:87
Data Management: 80
Non Traditional Arts: 84
Most of these grades are my predictions for this semester. I would really like a BBA or a BComm. I want to stay away from a BA unless the program will guarantee me co-op. Thanks for your help!
WLU ADMISSIONS
Hey, does anyone know when Laurier will be accepting early admissions?

Also, curious as to what programs you guys admitted to, please leave a comment if you like :)

Thanks!
