Undergrad Business Schools

Subject: Undergrad Business Schools
I know that a thread like this was started before, but it kinda went down hill and off topic.

I´m about to enter University, and I´m having problems trying to decide which one I should accept. Currently, it has broiled down to Rotman, Schulich, and Ivey (potential of queens, but time is running out fairly quickly, so probably not). Before, I had made my decision to go to Rotman, but now I find myself waning and considering the other more schools more seriously as the deadline closes in.

So I´m posing this question to current undergrad students or mba students. What´s ur opinion of the undergraduate commerce program of these schools? What do you believe are the strengths and weaknesses of the ontario business schools (eg. I was talking to a queens commerce student at a party who said UofT was good for business management, but not that great for accounting. He also said laurier was severely underated as a good business school. These types of opinions and reasons)? Lastly, what about university life at these various schools? It would also be great if you would like to rank them over all numerically.

I know that all these schools are good business schools and consistently rank high as being Canada´s best business schools but those rankings are ussually only for mba´s. I´d like an undergraduate perspective on not only academic, but social life at these universities for undergrads.

What are you going to major in?

You are giving us no information at all. If you were to study finance, you should go to ivey or Rotman.

Here are some tips:

1) choose a concentration
2) Compare the curriculums
3) Ask people on this board what they think

You have not done any of this.

1)I haven´t really decided on a concentration yet. However, the ones I have narrowed it down to and am considering are either Finance or accoutning.

2)I thought I was asking the people on the forum to compare the curriculums since I´m merely a high school student who has had no experience in University yet.

3)I believe I´ve already asked people on the forums for what they think by posting this thread in the first place.

NO, YOu had to complete the first two steps before completing the third step.

I suggest you talk to some advisors at your high school and ask them some questions. It is very important. Once you have chosen a major you should then have a look at the curriculums of these Universities and try to pick the one that suits your carear objectives. Some Universities are better at management and some are better at finance...

I strongly suggest you listen to my advice. (I did not follow the procedure I have outlined, and I have sufferred from this.)

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get into Ivey? My friend went to a private school and had a 98% average and still didn´t get into Ivey... There´s tough competition

A 98% and your friend still didn´t get into ivey? That´s strange cause I got into Ivey with a 90% avg. Maybe your friend had really bad math marks that weren´t included in calculating his avg or something, or perhaps Ivey doesn´t like students who go to private schools. This could also do with how long ago your friend applied, I heard the entrance averages are slowly declining due to the stabalizing of 4th and 5th year applicants.
