Laptop for University
Hey guys, I need an upgrade for a new laptop for next year. I am looking particularly at those that are 2 in 1 that can be a sturdy laptop for writing essays and etc. but also one that I can write on for chemistry notes for example (one that comes with a compatible pen would be preferable). A lot of my friends are getting a mac laptop and an ipad that they can write on but I was thinking if there is a 2 in 1 computer that could do both it could be more efficient and potentially cheaper. I want to switch all of my notes to electronic ones and for example in calc/chem it would be difficult to type and in my opinion it would be easier to write the equations and math. I am going into BMSc (Medical Science) and my courses for next year would be chem, physics, bio, calc, and probably music and a language as an elective. With that in mind, please leave all your suggestions and recommendations bellow and even a warning on what not to get. I would really appreciate it!!!

UNB Saint John Psychology Opinions
Hey everyone!
I'm thinking about transferring to UNBSJ for psychology. Does anyone have any opinions about the school and their psych program? All you hear about UNB is about their marine-biology course, but nothing about psych!
Also anything about campus life is welcomed! 
Any input will be appreciated!!

Political Science Students: what's your experience like?
Just really wanted some insight into the actual polisci experience as a prospective polisci student. It would be awesome if you guys could answer the following questions based on your experience within your program & anything else you'd like to add/wish you'd known before entering the program.

1. Institute of Study & year
2. Was co-op available? Where have your placements been? What has your experience been like at those placements and how have you been able to grow networking wise from those placements?
3. Other networking opportunities available at your school of study + unique experiences that have been made available to you through your program of study/institution of study (guest speakers, courses abroad, conferences, bilingual program etc.)
4. How have you enhanced your degree (clubs, volunteering etc.) and how has it helped you build skills & experience in the field?
5. Best & worst parts about the program in your opinion 
6. Ways the program has challenged you (critical thinking, essays, assignments etc.)
7. Advice for prospective students 
8. Hardships in the program/institution (profs, courses, lack of student support, financing experience/studies etc.)

Thanks guys! All the best to you

University of New Brunswick-insight into Bachelor of science program
I am currently in grade 12 and I was just wondering if there was anyone out there, who goes to UNB for bachelor of science. Would you say the professor and class environment is inviting? What are the class sizes like? Is there anything in particular about UNB that is advantageous or disadvantageous?

NURSING PROGRAM: Humber/UNB vs Seneca/York
Hey everyone, which do you guys think has the better nursing program? Humber/UNB or Seneca/York?

 I'm having a hard time deciding which one i should choose. I like Humber/UNB because i heard from my friend (she just finished her first year in RN) that students there are not competitive and its closer to my place(1hr and 30-40mins commute, going there). This means that my placements would also be close to me. But I also like Seneca/York because I would have to res meaning i won't have to wake up really early just to get to class. Also bec I honestly think i would focus more. If I'm my house im usually distracted.

Thank you! 
How are you deciding which university to attend next year?
So, as offers of admission start to roll out, I want to know (mostly because I am stressed about making the decision myself): how is everyone going to decide what university to attend next year? What universities do you have to decide between? Is cost, being able to live on residence vs commuting going to make the difference for you? Or is it something about the university itself which will, whether it's the prestige, the programs offered, the family legacy, etc.
For me personally, I have to decide between a few schools more close by - UBC, UVIC, SFU - and a few schools I applied to out of province - uOttawa, York and U of T.

Help picking a university
So I've received offers from UNB (business), Dalhousie (commerce), U of T (social science), UW (honours arts and business), SFU (business) and UBC (arts). (I honestly didn't know where to go so I applied to a variety of faculties and unis) I'm not sure where to go but I know I'll be doing a masters/JD or something similar after. Ideally, in the future, I'd be working in public policy, with the UN or an NGO of some sort. Help me decide, please... I'm so torn...

Should you live on campus in 1st year university?
For some students, living at home is not an option. Their university of choice is out of province, the program of choice is not available in their local university, etc. The question is then: to live on campus, or to live off campus while completing your education?

Pros of living on campus
- You'll become immersed in your community and make life long friends.
-It's a risk-free form of independence
-You'll be able to walk everywhere
-Fees are all inclusive, so you don't have to worry about budgeting for rent and food

Con's of living on campus
.-You get what you pay for...even if you don't need it
-Mandatory meal plans
-Sharing a crowded bathroom might not be your idea of a good time
