Entrance scholarships
I know that some schools
 have entrance scholarships based on your average but for those scholarships do they use your top 6 average to determine how much u can get or do they use your overall average ?

Admission Requirements for Ontario's top business programs
I am pretty confident I can achieve a 93% average in Grade 12 and I have pretty solid EC's but do I have to take calculus? Or can I get away with taking advanced functions and data management?? Some programs that really interest me are Ivey, Queens Commerce, Laurier BBA, McMaster commerce. Thanks let me know!

U of T or Laurier

I would appreciate any feedback on the following programs for Sept 2018. I enjoy the creative arts including drawing, writing, media design.

Laurier digital media and journalism Brantford (currently looking as my preferred choice)
Laurier user experience design Brantford 
Western media, information, technoculture
Queens film and media
UTM/ Sheridan communication, culture, info, technology
McMaster multimedia

Thanks for any comments. 
Business and Computer Science Combined ADVICE
So I really want to pursue a BComm or BBA, but since I've been doing comp sci for the past few years, I've been looking into a lot of unis that offer a combination of both areas (like WLU/UW program, UBC, UofC, etc). Without sugar coating the difficulty of doing two degrees at once, is there anyone than can give me advice on this combination? (job prospects, friends who have done it, experience, etc). ALSO, if you are straight up doing ANY combination, you are more than welcome to answer as well.

Need criminology advice!
I am a grade 12 student interested in criminology and originally planned on going to Wilfred Laurier Brantford campus for criminology. Since I made the decision of wanting to go to university in grade 11, I needed to switch my english's to uni but guidance would not let. I finished with an 85% college English. 

People are telling me I should go to Humber and take community justice or police foundations as a base course and after 2 years branch off into uni, but I don't know if that is possible or a good idea? I don't want to be a lawyer, but maybe something like a Parole Officer, does anyone have advice?

Transfer AFTER second year
I am entering my second year this fall in Biology. I currently go to a smaller university far from home and this summer has been very tough on my family financially. It would be better for me if I went to uni in Toronto/Durham region to save money. I was wondering if anyone has their own experiences or heard from friends about how it is like to transfer after second year. Also, I know most schools accept transfers only for the fall term, but I want to transfer as soon as possible so are there any schools which offer admission for the winter or spring/summer semesters? I will need further school after my bio  BSc, so for my undergrad years I want to save money. Also, am I making the wrong choice to transfer after second year? or should I just stay and finish up the degree there? Anyone with opinions on how its like transferring from a smaller uni to a larger one?
*I will be transferring into third year
*my grade are pretty decent so far-I only know the first year grades

HEY, just looking into some life sci/health sci programs for next year (I will be doing grad school too) and was wondering how the University of Waterloo is in their sci programs? I know some people who go for their arts/bus but not for sci. Is it a nice school for a science undergrad if I want to pursue grad school? I heard a lot about their coop and engineering but based on my grade 11 marks, I don't know if I will qualify for co-op. Just want any thoughts on the waterloo science programs/faculty and reasons why I should keep waterloo as my first choice *other than Co-op*
*edit-I will be living in rez

Does UWaterloo offer good connections in sciences?

Laurier User Experience Design Program ??
I'm considering applying to Laurier's User Experience Design program, but with it being brand new for 2017, there really isn't much information I can find about it. The program courses aren't even uploaded yet. I was just wondering if anyone else is interested in this program too? And if anyone that went to the Laurier Brantford open house could share their experience with that? I just wish I wasn't going in so blind.
