What about black people? I saw a few when I went to the open house, I normally hang with anyone regardless of race (mostly whites) but im concerned as to weather or no I would stick out like a sore thumb.
Laurier is definitely mostly white, but it's not like you'd "stick out". There are enough black people that I don't think you'd feel uncomfortable. Lots of black students are very involved in extra-curriculars and other stuff so I don't think you'd be uncomfortable.

Thank you for the reply, it should make the transition much easier.

On another note I was planning to take the exact same spread as this person during 1st year.

i'm taking as101 first semester and as102 second semester.

i'm taking cp102 second semester... but i've heard mixed reviews on this one. some people are saying it got harder in the past year?

also... i was thinking of taking a course DE (gg102 in first sem)... do you think that's a good idea?
I might either replace the human geography with a social welfare DE course or 2 1st year French courses (no experience with French) would this be a good idea.

I think both would be mostly easy, but I'd lean toward taking Human Geo DE. Everyone I know says it's even easier than taking it on campus.

astronmy is easy, you do these online assignments usually, multiple choice/matching/fill in blanks, etc. which are not that difficult. Exams are multiple choice and the prof posts her slides online, some people dont even bother going to class. Did i mention the extra bonus assignments too boost your marks? :cheesygri

The astronomy course is so easy, I have a major-specific restriction against taking it, and I'm in computer science. I'm also not allowed to take CP102, so it's a good thing you're taking that.

CP102 is definitely a bird course. I've been an Instructional Assistant for that class for the past two years. Haha, I don't know why I subject myself to that continuous monotony.

Agree with all of these. CP102 and AS101 are easy. If you don't get at least an A- in both, something's wrong lol.

Also going into 2nd year BBA. I've heard mixed reviews, but most say it's easier than first year (since you've adjusted and everything) except for Stats. If you know your statistics, you're pretty much set I guess.

2nd year is independent year, depends how hard you work.7

Bu 227 - easy A
Bu 247 - people may struggle with the concepts, but its a joke course
Law - If you have shelley goto lectures, its not that tough and study hard before the midterm and final.
OB - A joke, not even worth mentioning, just goto class.
Stats - depends how good your stats are, Kellar is gone, I heard its not hard to get an A anymore
BDM - People get owned because the midterm is always around Toronto interview day.
Macroecon with Vaughn - A joke of a course, goto class and take solid notes. It's all drawing graphs. I would buy the study guide too.

The problem with second year is it will be the first time you will have to be writing resumes, going to info sessions, applying to jobs and juggling it all. Most people get owned in the midterms during interviews in the Winter term, I mean if you have a investment banking interview or a midterm to study for, the interview takes precedence. But overall 2nd year is the easiest next to 4th year.

I dont know where you heard that but stats was voted as the worst course last year by the cord.

I'd say 2nd yr is a little harder than first but that's mainly because you have fewer electives. i'm going into 3rd year which i've heard is the hardest one but it's supposedly downhill after that :D

BU121 A

Im so worried I might not get in because of my EC120 mark. We should find out before June 24 and its killing me.

Your econ mark is fine. the Bu111 mark is the only thing a bit more worrisome, I would say your a shoe-in, but you never know what the competition is like.
