Subject: Montreal Student Applying to Toronto University
Hi Guy,
I am currently studying at a cegep in Montreal. And my average marks is in high 80´s. I have done some volunteering, and now I am thinking of creating a club in my school.

Do I have a good chance of getting into University of Toronto. Programs: Engineering Science, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics.

My Choises are
1. University of Toronto
2. Mcgill University
3. University of Waterloo

I am aware of the grades University asks for, but does it apply Quebec students as well.

I will be thankfull if all of my questions are answered by people who are knowledable on this matter.

Thank you

Of course you will get in.

Mcgill admission requirements are higher than those at U of T and they ask for an R score of like 26-27 for their engineering programs which is definitely below high 80s in percentages...

So yeah, you will get in without any problems.

Concordia should be your first choice. CEGEP marks are generally 10% higher than Ontario high school marks, so of course you´ll get into most schools in Canada!

Do not go into Engineering Science at UT unless you are a genius. I´ve seen people with 95% averages or so go in and get crushed in first year.

If you think you can make it, go ahead but it´s definitely a program that does a good job of separating the wheat from the chaff... at your expense.

As for getting into schools, it shouldn´t be a problem. But really, these are just opinions. Just gotta apply and see.

So,
You guys do not think Engineering Science is a good program. Anyhow, if I do finish my bachelor in Engineering Science, will I find a good job with great ease.

Thank You
for the guys who cared to reply.

I´m going into engineering science in the fall. I got in with a 95% no problem, and I´ve heard people have gotten in with 88s and 89s.

As to the difficulty: ya it´s hard, but if you develop a good work ethic and can roll with the punches, you´ll be okay. Plus I had a look at the exams from last year and they don´t look that bad.

And yes, as you mentionned, if you graduate you´ll be in really good shape, no matter what you where you want to go from there. 40% of graduates go on to do graduate degrees, and another 15% go into medicine or law. That´s pretty impressive. People´s eyes really light up when I tell them I´m going into Eng Sci. It is a really well recognised program. Much more so than Waterloo´s, certainly.

I´d say give it a try, and if you can´t handle it, transfer out. They have a lot of resources set up to help people transferring out of the program (40% of 1st years). If you get into Eng Sci and want to get out, you are automatically guaranteed a spot in any other engineering program at U of T. You could also transfer into Arts and Science, I guess.

I am guessing, you got a 95% in a High School, but I am doing CEGEP. Hopefully, I will be able to get higher grades in my following semesters, and get into Engineering Science.

ONtario high school maths is not comparable to cegep maths.

Just have a look at the first year math marks in ONtario Universities. Its like 60%

Well, I am planning to do all three Calculus in CEGEP, three Physics, two Chemistry, a Biology and two Linear Algebra. So oviously ontario high school students do not do that many courses.

Cal 3 is second year maths in Ontario University.

lol

If you get 87% in these courses, you are set!
