my only suggestion is try to contact one of the scools and see if upgrading ur mark in summer scool could give you a better chance of getting in. Get like a 100 on your worse course or something and it may put u over 75?
best of luck though

How is the OP's situation now? All your posts in this thread are scaring me already.... I need to pick between two colleges that give me firm offers.

If you want a P.Eng and work as an engineer, don't waste your time and go to a university instead. Work on improving your study habits and HS grades instead of doing a 3 year diploma. That is not even worth 1 year of credits at all Ontario engineering faculties except Lakehead.
Combining the idea in these two posts, does Crichtofan suggest an engineering technology prospective student to not enroll in a college but a university, get a degree and go abroad for more opportunities, meanwhile get the P.Eng qualification on the way? However, if a prospect has to settle unfortunately for an engineering technology program in college in the GTA, pick only either Seneca or Sheridan.Crichtonfan wrote: ↑Aug 13th, 2017 11:39 amI would get a degree program if you want to go work abroad. Why limit yourself to the GTA? And tuition should be free at least for this year, even if next govt reverses the free grant stuff, so take on OSAP grants. As for what program will get your a job? IT and software are self-driven careers regardless of school (except for Waterloo if we are talking Ontario schools, because of their intimate ties with employers). If you are not interested or passionate about the field or dont like dealing with new technology on a constant basis you are in for a grueling road to retirement. That said, I have heard nice things about Sheridan and Seneca @York IT programs.

Bro, are you serious? You sound so whiny. Every profession and major has its downfalls. Sorry you can't just waltz into a job because you have a university degree. Welcome to reality.cybercavalier wrote: ↑Aug 15th, 2017 1:48 pmWell, I like science in general and application of theory. However, numerous posts reveal that sciences are interesting to be studied. However, the sciences feature tough careers and large debts if a prospect is not at or near the top of his or her field, not to mention politics may factors in at some occasions. Obviously, supporting staff in health sciences are available but they are chasing the paycheck. A woman worked two part time jobs after Michener -- I think -- because she could not find full time work. Law schooling and professions feature high suicide rates. So when I can choose my path at this moment, my question for corner3 follows. If I can get into engineering school, do you mean I shall try computer or program engineering than the science? Or shall I go into economics, finance or actuarial fields?

I can't think of any downfalls working in the trades. And with trades you do waltz in without interviews really. Oh and I forgot,. If your all about the money then it does pay the bills, and then some. Right now I'm at a gig $80/h 12 hour days.....

Definitely not a baller. Just stating that trades pay well, you get a good workout and a nice stress free job. Don't need to worry about interviews and such. And why would I own a BMW?Corner3 wrote: ↑Sep 3rd, 2017 2:00 pmOMG!! $80 AN HOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STOP THE PRESSES!! TMKF_PATRYK GETS $80 AN HOUR!!
