Hey everyone! I started this thread to answer questions from the potential class of 2017, and to keep all of the University of Toronto-related items in one place.
I'm a first year engineering student at the University of Toronto and I'm currently studying electrical/computer engineering (same courses as TrackOne). I commute to school every day, so I can't really answer that many questions about residence, but I'm sure others will be willing to chime in on that.
I've been commonly told that high school from grade 9 and 10 is irrelevant and easy; however, grade 11 is supposedly the hardest from high school. In my school, it's called "The Year of Tears" in my school. Is there any tips, experiences that any of you guys are willing to share?
Going into Grade 12 and I have International Business and World Issues online. I just moved to a new school and they have limited options in terms of courses. I could only take these two courses online plus I have it first semester so it obviously counts a lot. I realize that their generally bird courses, but anyone who's taken an online course in day school, how did you find it? Also, any tips for doing well in online courses would be greatly appreciated.
Im a 2nd year BBA/BCS student at WLU and UW, based out of WLU. Feel free to ask me anything about DD, BBA at WLU, Math/CS at UW, student life in Waterloo, Co-op, etc. I am also quite familiar with Schulich, so I can try my best to answer questions about the BBA/iBBA program there.
Feel free to have any discussions about DD in here as well, it's always great to keep things together.

I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.
1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:
1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year
I am going into grade 12 and trying to figure out what school to go to. I have always been interested in doing something in health care and recently looking into physiotherapy
In grade 11 I got:
I slacked off a bit in bio and chem this year and got 95 on both exams but are marks like this good enough for getting into physiotherapy? What are the best programs or undergrads to take if i'm still not completely sure or should I go with something else?
Don't know exactly what im expecting out of this but any answers would be helpful
Hey guys I wanted to pursue a cfa designation after highshcool.
Is this possible through the BBA program at schulich, and if so what Is the process?
I know u have to write 3 exams and get 4 years of work experience.. But when would I be able to do this? (like can I write the exams during my years at schulich, and does the work experience have to be from a particular type of bank/firm type of thing?)
Would this schedule allow me to have time to study for each subject, or would it be too burdensome? Also, for those who have taken English online (Peel), are the assignments manageable? I will most likely use my spare in order to work on the assignments, but use my time after school to work on math. Would this work? I am taking English online as a security blanket because it is one of the hardest marking departments at my school and I don't want to risk having a mediocre mark. I will obviously drop before midterms if my marks are lacking, or if I find the work to be to strenuous.

EC's Plus Brief Background:
- I have a strong interest in finance/investing and am looking for the best program that can support my interests.
- I have been trading digital currencies and futures and have a return of approximately 19900% (turned $60 into $12000).
- I am the leader of my schools investment club and have won (1st place) all four of the school's annual investment competitions from grade 9-12 with the following returns in each competition: 96%, 120%, 210%, 1356% (note that 10% of my school plays in the games, so there is moderate competition)
- I am part of the school's steering committee for one of our charities
- 2 years work experience as a camp counsellor
(blah blah blah i dont want to focus too much on other EC's)
If anyone could give their insights on:
1. do i have a chance at the schools ive applied to
2. what program is the best fit for me/getting into the finance industry
I am about to start grade 12 next week. I need tips on how to make the best of it. This semester, I am currently taking:
BOH4M1 Business Leadership
MHF4U1 Adv Functions
BBB4M1 International Business
And ENG4U English
I am not the brightest of students but I do want to make it to university for a program in business (most likely marketing) and I will do whatever I can to ensure success this semester. Can you guys please give me tips on how to get through the semester with an 85+ average. I only averaged 72 in grade 11. Any and all support will be appreciated. Thank you.
I'm a second year Computer Engineering UBC student. I took first year sciences, lived in rez, and have since transferred into Engineering. I'm also an Orientations Leader and a volunteer for Destination UBC.
I can answer questions about about rez life, science, how I got into UBC, engineering or transferring. This is my second forum post, my old one was getting huge and a bit unwieldy.
Hi guys, so I still remember all the anxiety on this site back when I was in grade 11/12, scouring through every post and trying to grapple as much information possible about university. Well I am just about to head back into my second year at University of Toronto Rotman Commerce program and would be more than happy to answer ANY questions you have about UofT/Rotman.
Let me just say somethings, there are MANY misunderstandings about programs out here and don't let the advice of other high school kids be the decision factor for your 2013/2014 year. Let students who have GONE through the system once aid you to make a good choice.

AFM 121 - Introduction to Global Financial Markets
SPCOM 111 - Leadership Communication and Collaboration
ECON 102 - Introduction to Macroeconomics
STAT 211 - Introduction to Statistics and Sampling for Accounting
Can someone who is in AFM or has just recently finished first year tell me what the difficulty level in each course is like? What textbooks did you guys use? I am thinking of trying to prepare in the summer.
Particularly, how is AFM 101. I have not taken accounting in high school, but I have taken DATA and Economics. I want to be a CA when I am older. Anyways, how difficult is it going to be for me having not taken high school accounting. I am willing to work hard.
Is it possible to switch to different AFM 101 classes with diff profs? Which prof is the best/easiest for AFM 101?
I need to make my decision by May 2, as I have received a $12000 Major Entrance scholarship at SFU and that is the date of which I must accept/deny my offer by.
SFU is closer to my home and I'm very interested in their Biomedical Physiology & Kinesiology Major. My future goal is to aim for med school, most likely at UBC. Although I am planning to work very hard to get to medical school, I am realistic and I know things may not pan out. I will definitely pursue graduate studies if medical school don't work out, and I feel as if my BPK major at SFU can open more doors for me than a theoretical sciencey degree like microbiology at UBC would? I would rather a career as a physiotherapist for example than one as a "Lab rat", but I need some advice.
At the same time, UBC Science is very highly regarded and I know the stats are there that most people who get accepted into UBC med are from UBC. UBC has a gorgeous campus and a better student life, but I will be commuting from home (approx 75 mins each way) so I am unsure of how heavily involved I can get on campus. I went on a UBC campus tour recently and my tour guide admitted to me that UBC Science Co-Op is very competitive. Co-Op is a huge factor I am taking into account and if it there's less competition at SFU than that is something I will definitely consider.
People tell me that where I do my undergrad doesn't matter, but I am concerned that the wrong decision can come back and hurt me one day. If anyone familiar with SFU BPK or UBC Sciences can give me their two cents or advice to facilitate my decision, I will be very appreciative :) :)
