Subject: Rank the following schools for business
Im going to finish highschool with an avg of about 78%-80%. I want to get into Finance or Accounting and later move to the States(NY or NJ) in about 5-10 years. UofT, York, Western, Queens, and Laurier all look out of reach. I think I have a pretty good chance at Brock, McMaster, Guelph, Ryerson, and maybe UTM and Waterloo, how would you rank these universities?
Thanks, any help will be appreciated.

Sorry to say but you won´t have a chance at Waterloo either (at least for their accounting program)

On the other hand, Brock has a pretty solid reputation for their accounting program, and it has co-op as well. From that list, i would say that that would be the best accounting program.

At most universities you can easily change your program once you´ve been admitted.

Accounting is more competitive to get into than history or political science - as a HS student. On your application just select a different program. It is a well known trick for getting into certain programs at places like UofT. You do not officially choose your major until after your first year, and at that point they only care that you have the right prereqs and GPA average.

Spend the extra money and apply to all the schools you want. Your average is close enough to have a chance at the liberal arts programs for all the universities you listed. Do what it takes to get in and then change your major.

Doesn´t always work out that way at UofT. It´s hard to switch between faculties (i.e. from arts sci to engineering). Most times you are not allowed to take courses from certain programs in 1st year, meaning you wasted a whole year and probably need 5 years to graduate. And there is always the possibility that you will flunk out, because your marks didn´t cut it in the first place.

That´s true, it is very difficult to transfer from arts and science to engineering or commerce faculties at UofT. It´s like transfering to a different school. But if you wanted to study economics or biology, and only had the grades to get into english lit, you can take the same eco and bio prereqs in the first year that someone admitted on another ticket could. Since you aren´t officially in a program yet all freshmen are considered equal when choosing their courses. Except of course for certain schools like engineering and commerce.

Grades is something to consider too. If you were talking about english or geography grades I´d say that HS performance has littel bearing on uni performance, but the sciences are a different matter. Uni sciences and math are much harder than HS sciences. And you definitely don´t want to flunk out first year. Sure, UofT (for eg) is a good school but good luck transfering anywhere else with a D average.
