Another unemployed engineering grad...
Why is there so much hype among high school students for engineering programs when even U of T engineering graduates are unemployed/underemployed in the Canadian job market? Have these kids even done their research?

For myself- 

Expected average: 90%
Grade 11 average: 85%
Course load:  
1st semester-

Social justice
Spare
English

2nd semester-
Bio
Challenge & Change

uOttawa vs. uGuelph
So I am currently a high school student residing in Mississauga and am looking for universities to apply to. uGuelph and uOttawa are my top two unis to apply to at the moment after doing a ton of research and just need a little more help deciding which university to attend.

The two fields of study I am most interested in are commerce (particularly business administration/management/marketing) and social sciences (public administration and public policy + similar courses) so I was wondering what exactly would be the best university for me to attend to for either one of those programs. What is the residency there like? How good are the co-op programs? How is the campus like? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Laurier Health Sci, Waterloo Kinesiology
Hey guys! I’m currently a grade 12 student thinking about where to apply for school. I’m not 100% sure what I’d like to be, but it would definitely be related to the medical industry. The courses I took this year were: Biology, Chemistry, Advanced Functions, English, Business, and World Issues. Currently, my number one choice is Queens Health Science, which is a new program that they are introducing for my year in 2019. I have also been thinking about applying to Waterloo Kinesiology, because I heard that they have an excellent cadaver lab and good courses. One of my other choices is Laurier Health Science, which I’ve heard has small class sizes. My backup choices are McMaster Life Science (I heard the class sizes are enormous and it is competitive), Ryerson Bio-Medical Science, and Guelph Bio-Medical Science.

 I was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on their process with applying/studying at these schools. How do you like it and what do you think of their courses, campus life, etc.

Difference in Averages- University Admission?
So in grade 11, I had some tough personal family issues (and also just didnt realize grade 11 marks mattered for university lol) so my U/M level course average was a 74 (thanks chem and math!) Now in grade 12, my average is a 91. But, will universities like Queen's and Western see my grade 11 marks and not accept me anyways, despite the great improvement? Or will they just not grant me early acceptance, but in later months of the school year,  will they only look at grade 12 marks and then be more likely to accept me?

Queen's Admission Average Cutoff
Hi! I know on the Queen's website, they have the admission average for arts as '80+'. I was just wondering what the cutoff actually was last year,  as I certainly assume it was well above an 80 lol. I know the cutoff can range from year-to-year, but just to give me a more realistic ballpark to aim for.

Dating: Long Distance
PLEASE READ! Long distance relationships are not what they are portrayed to be. They are not as hard, emotionally draining, or as impossible as people assume. Right now, I am living 3 hours away from my boyfriend (who plays a varsity sport). We see each other once or twice a month. We are both happy, both with room to live our own lives but always being able to catch up at the end of the night. We still love each other, nobody has been unfaithful, and it is relatively easy. The time we spend together is always quality time, and I do not regret staying with him.If you love someone and think you they could be the person for you, go for it. The worst that could happen is that it doesn't work out and you part ways. It is entirely possible, do not give up just because of what you THINK might happen.

Pros of a long distance relationship...
1. The time you spend together is really exciting and precious
2. You have the freedom to be yourself and make friends on your own terms
3. You always have lots to talk about with your S/O because you're apart during the day
4. It tests whether the relationship is really worth it
5. Meeting their new friends means more friends for you!
6. Sex/physical intimacy is so much better when you've been waiting for it
7. It will show you how much your partner really values you
8. You don't need to pick between your friends and partner during the week
9. It helps keep you focused

I hope that this helped anyone that needed to hear it.

CAREER FOCUSED SCHOOLS
I was wondering what are some universities that are more career focused. What I mean by this is schools that are interested in helping you find a good job and they don't just focus on you having a good undergraduate experience. Some of the schools I am looking at are:
- University of Western
- University of Ottawa
- University of Guelph 
- York University

THANKS!!

Applying to too many programs?
I anticipate a top 6 average of mid-high 80"s. Is it too much to apply to all of these programs? I think I'm splitting the price with my parents... Western and Queen's are my top choices, but I know that they are quite competitive schools :/ 

In order from most-least interested:
Western Health Science
Queen's Health Studies
Western Nutrition
Guelph Nutrition
Brock Medical Science
Trent Biology w Health Science Specialization
McMaster Health and Society
UOIT Health Science

Health Science Degree
Is there any career you can do with solely a health sci degree? I do plan on continuing school after undergrad as of now, but I also don't want to put myself into a position where I absolutely have no other choice if I do feel done w school after. My other option is nutrition, but there are health science programs avaliable at more schools, and the courses seem more interesting to me...

UTM vs Waterloo vs Guelph
Hi, I was wondering what university out of UTM, Waterloo or Guelph would be the best for a computer science degree. Also, which one is more likely to help me get a job after graduation... Thanks for your help.

Ask me Anything: Ivey HBA Transfer 2018 from another university
Not going to say my university of transfer.
It's from an Ontario university but it's not Toronto or Waterloo.

I've been in your position before. I really just want to help students make better decisions towards their careers so that they can one day contribute more effectively in their communities. 

I'm the  OP for this post linked below. I really encourage that you take a read on that one too!

IS GUELPH A GOOD BUSINESS SCHOOL?
expected average is low to mid 90s.

I was just wondering if guelph is a good school to go to for business. I am quite unsure as to what I want to do in the future in terms of business, but i see that guelph has an undeclared major first year business degree, and if that is a good program?

Health sci, life sci or kin?
I dont know what I want to do after my undergrad so I wanted to keep my options open for vet, physiotherapist, nurse, or other medical jobs. I also recently added malpractice attorney to that list.... (which would mean getting into law school)

I'm very interested in Kin but I don't think i can get into vet/nurse from that

Not sure what to major since i'd like to keep a decent GPA in case I decide to try to get into law school, but also still be able to keep my options open for other careers

Advice/opinions on this?

Best Commerce Programs...?
I am an Ontario student and I am most interested in Rotman and Queen's. I will probably have between a 90-92 average in my grade 12 year and I was just wondering if there are any other schools across Canada that I should be looking into. I am worried that I am not going to get into these two schools and just want other people's opinion on what schools have worthy commerce programs that I should look more into. Thanks!!

University Looking at marks
Ok so currently I am taking both biology and chemistry in adult school. They go by quadmesters so ill be done both these courses by November 9th. Now calc and data are offered only during the third and fourth quadmester. So the third starts January 31st.

Im planning to take either calc or data, but will universities still look after date for marks from schools like adult school and not reject me because I took calculus before and got a 70, so will they use the 70 and reject me or will they wait until the quadmester ends which is April 16th?

Thanks
