good question...

general rule is that while universities are academic studies, collages are more hands on.

In other words, its more of a theory in university and more of hands on experience in collages.

I assume that in computer engineering you'd need a LOT of academic skills - designing new hardware and all (or atleast thats what I think:?)

Anyway - University of Waterloo looks afuly good. Not only will you be able to party with the rest of the gang (myself, Dan and a bunch more of cool people) but they got an awesome computer engineering program. Really tough to get in though. Like 95% average with a bunch of sciences Shocked

if you have a uber average and bothered with American History 11 then you could look into MIT

I plan to go to Waterloo, most likely into Software Engineering or something like that. The requirements are only a 90%, not 95%. 90% average is not that hard for me, and the school is also writing a letter of recommendation for me, since I have participated in the Enhanced Program. Co-Op sounds really nice, and I'm pretty sure I can get in Very Happy Too bad I'm only in Gr. 10, but my marks have not lowered since Gr. 9, so if I can keep up the trend, I'll do fine.

Vicous, you should really pull your grades up...

anything un waterloo related should probably be asked from your school's quidance.

You only need one Gr. 11 math, and that's Functions and Relations. If you want to get into some sort of computer course in Waterloo, you MUST take Advanced Functions and Introductory Caculus AND Geometry & Discrete Mathematics in Gr. 12. Without those two, you have no chance in getting in Waterloo. You also need physics, chemistry for some comp courses, and Gr. 12 Comp Sci is compulsory. Yes, those are all hard courses, but what do you expect? You can't expect to get into one of the best universites in Ontario by taking all easy courses, did you? As for me, I meet all requirements, except for my marks, I plan to have my chemistry & physics, taking comp engineering and comp science till gr 12, my 2 Gr 12 maths, and that should cover it Very Happy

also if you cant get good grades in grade 12 some poleop do a year of colage and then try to get in to a univistey. this way can also be cheper if you care about cose. but persional i am going to waterloo after grade 12 if i can get in. probley for magjore compsci and minor in software eng.

i whode remomend unistrey for comp eng becuse it looks better to compays that whode whont to hire you and waterloo is the best school in canada for compsci stuff.

haha, i said i was taking 2 maths because i wanted to keep my options open, theres one course that i need for collage but cant get with university math in grade 12 that i need in grade 11... but i am taking physics and chemistry too... there's a lot of really hard courses i'm taking in grade 11... (2 maths, physics, chem, english, history) but i know i need them i've already talked to guidance... i wouldnt be aiming for waterloo comp sci if i was too stupid to even check out what i need
