Hi, I'm currently a grade 12 student who will be applying to Western + AEO, the only reason I'll probably get AEO ( If I do ) is because they don't count math in your top 6 (Ivey) , otherwise my average will be around 85% because of math, which is good enough for BMOS.
Is the math in BMOS hard? I'm terrible, lol .. I don't want to take the risk and do something like geography and have a useless degree in case I mess up and don't make it into Ivey!
I'm great at business Ex. 99% Management (only one in my school), and 95% in Intl. Business, but in math I'm inn the low 60's : /

Nobody cares where you went, don't expect people to respect you for your undergrad education. Your personality will help tho.
I have been thinking of a career path for a very long time now. I am a 12+ I returned to high school for a semester. I now have discovered I have an extreme interest in becoming a park warden or something similar for Parks Canada. I would just like to know what programs are the best to get into for this career choice. I heard it can be flexible with what degree you take.
The problem is I am not very skilled in the sciences, in high school I only received marks of around mid 70's in sciences. Science interest me I'm just not very good at it. (I also never took chemistry, only Bio in grade 12) My other marks are fine; I plan to have an average of around 85%.
My main point is I was wondering if I can still pursue this career path taking a program like Criminal Justice and Public Policy at Guelph or Criminology elsewhere. I am told you can become a park warden or something similar taking these programs.
It seems the smart thing to do would be to take something like environmental management but like I said this requires advanced chemistry and so forth.
I am hard worker when I enjoy what I'm doing and I could defiantly work towards this path.
I am third year student at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. I did a Bachelor's degree (Hons. BSc) in Biochemistry with a specialization of pathology of human disease at the University of Western Ontario. My GPA was 3.91 when I applied for pharmacy school.
Hi! So I'm currently in grade 10 and I want to plan my grade 11 courses ASAP, so here's what I'm planning on taking:
Intro to Computer Studies (ICS3U1)
Extended French (FEF3U1)
Visual Arts (AVI3M1)
only thing is, as you can see, is that I have 1 too many courses, so I was wondering if I should take something in the summer? I'm planning on taking English in the summer, but is that a good choice? Do universities like UofT and Waterloo care if I took grade 11 english in the summer?
I really want to take Visual arts again as well as computer studies, so I don't want to take them out.

A little background about me, is that I have been a very high achiever my whole life. I have always been at the top of my classes and I take my education seriously so marks mean a lot to me. I study hard, i am that annoying student who asks the teachers a bunch of questions to clarify one thing. However, my grade 12 year has not been very good. My marks are lower than previous years and i have been performing poorly on tests, which is something I am not used too. It has come to the point where I always feel like crying because of the stress to get good marks so that I can go to university. I feel overwhelmed and sad all the time because of the expectations i have for myself.
I hope anyone who is/was in the same situation, to tell me how they deal with bad marks/school stress. I would really appreciate it.
I'm usually really busy due to school, but I will try and answer any DeGroote/Business/Application/Social/McMaster related questions based on my experience! I apologize in advance if I'm late or don't get to your question. Everything posted here are from my own personal experiences and it's my own opinion. I personally feel that not a lot of DeGroote students uses this forum, and oftentimes we are being misrepresented. Therefore, I created this thread to clear things up and to provide advices from the actual experiences that I've been through. I'm not an official McMaster representative & do not affiliate with the McMaster admissions in anyway.
Hey guys! I'm a 1st year Engineering Student at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver! I know how stressful applying for university can be in your senior year of high school, so ask me any questions about UBC, engineering, student clubs, living on campus, scholarships, university life or anything else you can think of. I'll try to be as helpful as I can!
I'm looking at going into engineering (most likely mechanical) and I'm split on what university to go to. I want to hear an overall review of each university. I know the basics like co-op and I want to hear opinions about that too but I want to hear more information. For example, how the student community is, how are the clubs, are there opportunities to independently apply and expand your knowledge (e.g. Ottawa's Makerspace). Information like that would be very useful to me. Thank you to all that reply!
I want to take English or any sort of social science. I know there will be a lot of essay writing but I also know there's only a few required courses in year 1 so I get a lot more electives. How does year 2 go and how are the programs in general in terms of difficulty? Also how are the exams laid out?
