So most of my admission offers have come in. Can't say I'm dissappointed as I got accepted to some of my top choices. Out of the five schools I applied to for engineering, got accepted into three (McMaster, Western, Guelph), denied by one (Waterloo), and still waiting on the last one (Queens).
I was pretty bummed when I saw that I got denied entrance into my top choice, but then I realized I still got into some pretty good schools. At this point, I'm stuck between Western and McMaster and I have to decide by June 2nd. I'm also currently leaning more towards McMaster just because of a familiarity with the school, though Western wouldn't be a bad choice either (#4 party school on Playboy's top 10, haha; not the reason why I want to go there, it was just always sort of a dream to go there, but now I'm not so sure).
So a few days after getting my offer from McMaster, they sent me another email about applying for admission into LEAP/Headstart program for the summer. A 3 week program to start in one of courses in the summer or 6 weeks to do two courses. To get into this program, I would have to apply by May 26th, do a fire safety course online, etc., but would have a lighter course load during the school year.
If anyone has any advice on choosing schools, I'd love to hear them.
Well enough of my rambling, just felt the need to share such exciting news (for me, and maybe for the readers).
