Which university is better for IBD?
Hello everyone, I'm a grade 12 student from Ontario. I wanna compare a couple of programs and need some advice on what I can do in this situation.
So I applied for a couple programs and got accepted by all of them, but the four programs I mainly wanna compare are listed below
- Ryerson Bcomm: Accounting and Finance (co-op)
- UTM: Commerce (Correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think there's a co-op)
- McMaster Bcomm: DeGroote Commerce (Again do not know if there's a co-op)
- UofG Bcomm: Management Economics and Finance
Programs that I didn't apply but regret not doing so: Laurier BBA, Ivey, Schulich BBA, Queen Commerce, and Rotman commerce (After seeing my friends with less marks and barely any EC's get into these programs, I've been so sad cuz everyone seems to tell me that these are the only programs that are good to get a job - also I called and checked with a couple of these universities to see if I have a chance to apply now since the deadline is over, but they said NO)
So I basically wanna get into finance, specifically, investment banking. But if that's impossible idc as long as I can get a job that pays a similar salary to investment banking. However, after I asked people about the programs I've applied and which one I wanna chose, I didn't get the responses I was expecting, everyone was just flaming me for wanting to go to Ryerson and saying that you should apply to Tier 1 schools blah blah blah... Like I wish I could too but at this time when all the programs are closed, there's no way on earth I can apply to Tier 1 programs. Now, I can only go to the 4 programs I've mentioned above. I honestly don't know what to do and I'm super stressed. Someone please tell me what I can do in this situation. All replies are appreciated and I'm sorry for the rant.
Btw taking a gap year is not an option for me and the only options I think I have is to either try to transfer from Ryerson or Mac to Ivey, Queens, Schulich, or Laurier.
