Hi,

So I have a couple of quick questions to students/faculty from Capilano University.

-What is the admission average?
-How hard is it to get into the music programs?
-Whats the average cost for housing in the area?
-How are the business programs?
-How's campus life?

Thanks in advance

I went there for the first two years of post-secondary. I can't answer all of your questions. I found that the campus life was very poor...there's not many clubs or anything like that. My friend who currently goes there reports that there are many hipster sightings, their habitat being the new film building. But I did have some excellent professors there, including one history professor who I had for five classes. I think professors at Cap are much more helpful than at the more "prestigious" universities.

University Profs' primary duties are not teaching - they're researchers. Kind of backwards if you were to ask me.

Thanks for the input! What was your grade 12 average when you got in?

I only went there for one semester back when it was still Cap College but I really enjoyed the campus. Good location and a positive environment to learn in. Much better than Douglas which was very bleak and depressing.

The profs were not the most educated (compared to university profs at least) but they were all super nice and helpful. Helped me get my grades up really high in just one semester so that I could transfer to University.

Why don't you shoot for UBC or SFU?

I don't know...probably a B average. But I think making the jump to UBC or SFU right off the bat is not always a good thing. My friend went to SFU right away, got burnt badly by the transition from high school to university and he didn't do very well first year. Now he's doing his fourth year at Langara and he's going back to SFU next year.

I'm gonna have a couple of years of post-secondary experience before I apply to those schools.

Cap's paralegal program is pretty good...

Only two universities have this program in Canada, the other one is in Ontario.

- Take transfer courses if you want to go to SFU or UBC in the future. (Year 2-4)

I'm planning on taking transfer courses after 3 years at BCIT.

Heard the music program was good and, therefore, competitive.
Housing costs are high in North Van.
Cap has a business program and an applied business program that ladders into the business program. Don't know about admission gpas.
