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
York global health / ryerson public health
Im thinking of applying to the following programs. I just want to know if anyone is in these programs or knows anything and if you think they are any good:
-Ryerson public and occupational health- to be a public health inspector or epidimeologist with a masters
-York global health- epidemiologist with masters
-carleton- bioinformatics
And possibly physician assistant school or med school after? (Clearly i have no idea what i want)
Any advice would be helpful

Do I have a chance of getting into Comp Sci for Waterloo or U of T?
In grade 11 my average was 89% but they are looking for low 90s, so if my average this year turns out to be low 90s, how much of a chance do I have to get into the programs?

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.

Not sure
I'm not sure what to do, I want to have a degree in Computer Science and I cannot get into McMaster for Computer Science because the average is way too high for me. I'm having a difficult time deciding on where I should go I was thinking of going to U of T mississauga for computer Science but i heard the tuition is very pricey and I would want to go to York or Ryerson but they're very far from hamilton and I dont think its a realistic everyday thing. I was thinking of going to Mohawk College first and then get a degree in Software Engineering from McMaster but i'm not sure if that will be a good idea and I do not want to take a student loan because i do not want to be in debt ( my parents have a certain amount saved up for me). So my question is, should I get a student loan and live outside of home and be in debt or take the cheap way out and go through college and then try to get into Mac for software engineering.

You can share...
1) What school(s) you`re applying to?
2) What other programs are you applying to as a backup?
3) What overall average are you aiming for at the end of the year?
4) For current/past nursing students, what is your advice for anyone applying for nursing programs this year?

I am applying to Western, McMaster, Brock, Ottawa and some collabs!
Hoping for a 90 average this year.

Is York a good university for the life sciences?
I've heard about the Schulich program at York, so I know that it's a good university for business, but is it also good for programs like biochemistry or biotechnology?

Top 6 need to include all prerequisites?
The other day I was talking to a ryerson representative and he mentioned that my top 6 don't need to include my prerequisites as long as I have completed them with a grade of 75+. I was wondering if this applies to the York and Western computer science program. Thanks.
brock's BBA or Ryerson Bcomm or York's Commerce
hi, im currently a grade 12 student getting mid 80's and 90's so far except for math which is below 50 :(. I know there are better business schools and programs then these but im not ready to go to a business school that is hard and where i will be emotionally drained and stressed out. I want go to a business school where i can manage my grades. I am going through enough stress in grade 12 already and i dont want to go through it again. I know ryerson has no co-op but what about york's commerce ..does it have it if your not going to schullich  and how is brock. I am just confused about if i should i go to a university that has no co-op or not

Do unis care if you are failing a course not in top 6 BEFORE getting an offer?
Hey guys,

I go to a non-semestered school. If I am failing one course but it's not in the top 6 or a prerequisite, will unis like Schulich, Rotman, Ivy, etc.. care at all even though my average is like a 94% in top 6? This is before even getting an offer
University transfer process after first year
Has anyone transfered universities in Ontario after first year and would like to provide any insight? How hard would it be with a GPA of 3.7 to 3.8. If anyone has gone from UWO to McMaster or York, any insight would be appreciated!
