York university: who recommends it?



So I've been accepted to the Business Economics course at York, still have time to accept or decline. Anyone have any good/bad information about York University in general, or maybe even the program?

Any feedback is appreciated.

From what I hear, its easy! lol...ofcourse its a good school...shulick (sp?) is obviously better.

I completed my degree from uoft (miss. campus), i finsihed with Commerce specialist in accounting and Commerce specialist in finance, and eco major...UofT is more serious and is definetly much harder!

So i guess it depends which route you want..the easy or hard one!

Good luck....

dont listen to fel, hes on crack.

are you commuting to york? and how long of a commute? If your commute is more then 15 minutes DONT DO IT.

Nothing kills your buzz like a long as commute. Biggest mistake I made was going to York. If I could turn back time I would have gone to Ryerson or UofT but damn york and its scholarship.

unless youre living on res.

if you live close by, go to york.

^^ First off, choose your words carefully, no need to act stupid on the net!


Secondly, how am i on crack if you said the same thing i said, with the exception of residence/commuting?
Edit: it doesnt change the fact that it is a good school! Also, commuting doesnt get everyone tired or kills their brain! I personally hate commuting thats why i picked the sauga campus, but other people dont mind commuting and can actually get work done during those hours!



I guess crack does have effects on some people!

I would be living on res for atleast the first year (who knows after that) but if i had to commute it would be about 45 min, as i live in burlington.

Right now the only places that i have acceptances from are

York for program stated above
Brock for Honours Bachelor of Business Economics
and UOIT for commerce

Even though offers can be given out up until may 25th i think this is all the offers im going to get.

York SEEMS like the best of the 3... Correct me if im wrong.

I will be straight forward with you.... after Graduating from york almost 5 years ago. A degree is worth piss sh!t in the real world. I agree you should have it and it is a good way to train yourself for the real world. But in reality employers just look to see if you have it. Now being in Management I look for it as it is a requirement, however I will gladly take a person with years of experience over someone fresh out of school...... Now dont get me wrong, im not saying dont get a degree, what im trying to say is that unless it is a specialized degree and you are going into a field specialized for the training you receive from university... they are all pretty much the same stuff.....

I just hired my friend who has a honors degree in Poli Sci and a minor in some other field... He was selling shoes before he joined my company.... Choose a school near you and offers the best all round package. UNLESS it is in a specialized field where certain schools are more recognized and/or used for pools for possible employment after.

PS: If it means anything, i probably had the most sex in my life during my York days. the girls were sexy as hell....

Unless it is a specialized field IE: Engineering / Chemistry etc. Many employers are putting the requirement for a Degree / Diploma as a standard not so much as a requirement to sucessfully complete the job. However, I find that those with years of experience are more prone to being hired, compared to people fresh out of school. A degree will get you into an entry level job most of the time, its the experience after is what counts later on in your career. Unless you plan to move forward with even higher levels of education.

This is not true.... Its a realistic approach to a degree, they are a dime a dozen. Looking back at it, i believe university is a good environment to socialize you for the working world... IE: No one on your case about doing work / coming in to class / finishing up assignments. Its all up to you, It preps you for life after school. Which i value more than my degree (in Poli Sci BTW) and my career has very little to do with my degree. But i do use fundamentals of the university life in general every day in work.
