  1. Engineering has a limit of 21 units per semester. The multiterm course, although graded as 6 units in 2nd sem is split as 3 units per semester for that unit cap, as you're really doing 3 units of work each semester, so you should be fine, as you have 21 units 2nd sem, not actually 24 for the way they calculate it

  2. There's lots of info about it that will continue showing up, there will be more co-op sessions later in the year also (at least there were in other years), and you can always go to the co-op office (ECCS) to ask questions about it, they're super helpful. There's also the co-op ambassadors that you can ask questions about it. If you're in co-op you'll take a co-op course that will also help you understand how it works and what you need to do, and some skills about how to get a co-op. If you're not in co-op you can just email ECCS to ask to be put into the co-op stream, it's a pretty easy switch.

  3. It's an entrance award based on your acceptance average, you don't apply for it, it's automatically applied to all incoming first year students in engineering if they meet the criteria.

  4. See if you can talk to other people in your classes and get to know them. If you have tutorials/labs those are generally easier to do it in because they're normally more collaborative and you can talk to people easier. Group projects are also great for making friends. It seems kinda scary to start talking to random strangers (especially if you're an introvert like me), but there's likely a bunch of you that all want friends because you didn't have a chance to make them last year but are all unsure about how to make them. That's how I made my friends as a commuter who wasn't in any clubs

  5. I'd at minimum apply to 1 other, after your top choices, that you are basically guaranteed to get into. I've heard of many people applying to 8, but if there's some that you don't really like in your list of 8 you could cut them out

  6. You will be disqualified as you are no longer going into ECE, they don't release any funding until it's been confirmed that you've enrolled in the ECE department

  7. You can take any course whenever you want as long as the prereqs are met, but it might be challenging to fit it into your schedule as they assume that you've taken it in 2nd year when you're advised to take it, so a 3rd or 4th year course that you want/need to take may have a conflicting schedule with it later on

  8. You would get the same BScN degree from both, so I'd assume that career wise you'd get the same options from them, there might be a difference in the quality/location of the placements that are available for during your studies. Your tuition would likely be significantly cheaper at Seneca than at York as colleges usually have much cheaper tuition than unis.

  9. Chose whatever name you like, if you like the name Vettel, then stick with it, if you decide you don't like it, then chose something else. It's not a name that I've heard before, but there's lots of people with names I've never heard, so don't let that bother you. It's also a lot easier if you don't have the same name as lots of other people (speaking from experience as someone who has a very common name).

  10. The deadline is 60 days before the end of the term. I'd advise to do it ASAP so that you could get your money applied to your tuition rather than paying out of pocket and having the money refunded to your later.

  11. The scholarship/grant would depend on the uni, some unis may offer some, other might not. You'd have to figure out what unis you're interested in and go from there to see what they offer. Each uni does it's own thing, so there's no overall answer.

  12. It really depends on the program, there are lots of direct admittance programs and lots of general first year programs where you get into the program based on your 1st year GPA, and some of the general first year programs will give you a guaranteed 2nd year spot of your choosing based off your high school grades. Every university and almost every department/program in each university has their own admittance process and way they give out spots in each program, so I'd look at what each one says for every program you're looking to apply to. There is no one general way they do things.

  13. You have access to almost all the buildings and libraries, you just walk into them, you don't have to show student id or anything. I'm not sure if you can reserve study rooms as we have to do that through our mcmaster account, but you will likely be able to reserve study rooms in the IAHS libary. The libaries have lots of study spaces that you don't need to reserve, the reserved areas are just convenient for group projects, but you can do them in some of the general study areas. You don't get access to the pulse, the gym access you get is the mohawk gym, which is on the mohawk main campus

  14. I didn't take a gap year. I've been working full time in the summer's since I was 12, part time jobs during the school year since I was 15, and in uni now I do coop in the summer and still have part time jobs in the school year, and OSAP

  15. This is the list of dates, go to fall/winter 2022-23. You have till Jan. 17 for it to not show up on your transcript, Jan 17-Mar 17 you get a W, after Mar 17 you get a F.

  16. Will I get my money back if I pay for the course in full before?

  17. Yes, if you drop before Jan 17 you get all your money back. Tuition isn't due till Jan 25 for the winter semester, so you likely wouldn't have paid for it yet anyways

  18. No one is going to look at that course, your grade in it doesn't matter. They really only care about your top 6 grade 12 courses

  19. Dude Advanced Functions is the perquisite for calc, u need to know all of advanced functions to comprehend calc

  20. They're actually antirequisites, it's not a prerequisite, so you either need to take advanced functions prior to or at the same time as calc, so it's fine to take them in the same semester. You will be at a disadvantage if you don't have advanced functions already, but it is still doable without it. I wouldn't say it relies heavily on advanced functions though

  21. Assuming he has enough credits to graduate without the religion course, he should be able to get his OSSD. He won't get the school board's high school diploma/might not be able to go to the graduation ceremony, but the requirements for the OSSD are the same for every student, no matter the school board, and they don't require any religion courses. As long as he has his OSSD he can go to university.

  22. Chances are it would be better to get someone you trust to log in and do it for you, emailing residence services may take awhile to reply, and it's highly unlikely your slot would be moved forward, if anything you'd be moved backwards to after your cruise, so then it's not really worth it to email them, as you can just select your time once you get back, unless you're only allowed to select your residence during your appointment week and not after.

  23. You can only choose electives that don't conflict with your schedule. You could try to switch sections for your required courses after your enrollment appointment, but there won't be many options to switch as most of your required classes will be completely filled, so I wouldn't bank on being able to switch them. You can save multiple favorite schedules (with different electives) so you can easily enroll in them at your appointment. I'd have a backup elective just in case the one you want to take fills up before your appointment. You should be able to see if they're full already, they'll show up as a blue square rather than a green circle after the section number (ex. c01, c02..). If you don't get into your first choice of elective this year, you could try to get into it for the next few years, as you will eventually need a total of 4 complementary electives before you graduate.

  24. Okay thanks that helps a lot. So I don’t choose multiple electives I only choose 1 and if it isn’t filled when I purchase the timetable then I automatically get into that course? I don’t know why, but I understood it as I choose multiple courses as backups as well as the one that I want to be in. Or is that also how it works?

  25. Yeah you only choose 1, you only need 1 each semester. If it's not filled when you go to enroll, you will be able to enroll in it, and you won't need your backup ones. And once you're enrolled you're in the course. Your backup is only for if the course is filled and you are unable to enroll in your preferred elective. People suggest backups because the common electives tend to get filled quickly because lots of people want them, then you have to scramble to find another elective to take in its place, which is stressful.

  26. It won't let you enroll if you don't meet the prereqs. I'm not sure if it just flags you when you try to enroll or if it will tell you beforehand, but I know it won't let you enroll unless you're enrolled in the prereqs or have taken them already. Instead of taking those courses, take the prereqs so you can take those courses next year, because unless you ask for that prereq to be waived, you won't be able to take that course.
