I guess it's too late to apply to McGill...
Graduate school, perhaps...

Well, I think, based on the information that I've gotten from you all, and based on my program of interest, I think I'll be attending UBC in the fall.
Any comments on residence vs. living off-campus?
I'm from Surrey (no, I'm not a rioter) so it would be a 1.5/2 hour commute everyday...

Depends really on how many courses you plan to take.
Science courses take up a large chunk of your time with lectures, labs, and lab work after (usually can't finish the lab in the given lab time)

I live 1.25-1.5 hours away from SFU. It is horrible if I take a lot of courses. It eats up so much time. Time you could be using to study or prep for classes. I'd suggest living on campus or at least "near" campus.
It is also draining on your body in the long run. I didn't feel the effects the first year but the second year definitely hit me hard and dropped my GPA.
So all in all, I suggest you move closer, 30-45 minutes transportation max is a good number to stick to. Anymore and time would be an issue.
