That's surprising. I'm in biz and I love it here. I chose it over Sauder. Within my first year I already had the opportunities to meet tons of big corporate professionals and network with some pretty successful people. Profs are fun and engaging and Beedie has so many events across every concentration along with tooons of other things such as case comps etc.

I'm really surprised haha. Guess people have different experiences. Hope it gets better for you!

PS. Beedie won academic school of the year at JDC West (prestigious case competition that schools across Western Canada compete at).


The profs have been good for business, outside of that is it quite hit or miss. Its my experience as a whole, not specifically beadie that's been the issue at SFU

Yeah there are times where it can kill time spent to studying, but it's pretty much up to the person if they want it to. The social activities are definitely out there... you'll be able to find some place to spend your time everyday in the greek system. Some people let it affect them, others realize they're at University for a reason: to get an education.

It's also not all partying, my resume has expanded immensely from all the philanthropy work we do.

Saw that link from the ubyssey, happy to see it work out for them :)


Yeah that's true. Honestly though, UBC as a whole provides so much opportunity to build that resume within the typical 4 years one stays there. Just curious, which frat are you in?

SFU needs more government funding.. UBC is getting tons and tons of support from the government but other universities like SFU and UVic aren't getting the support they need in order to increase their rankings in the university ranking system.

UBC definitely does, it's just a matter of which path you want to take to do it... I knew some guys in a fraternity already and knew the type of bond you build being in the greek system. I just felt like a good decision (still feel it's a good decision), but going greek for sure is not for everyone. I'd rather not say what fraternity I'm in :P

Finals are better. At least you have some time off between classes and the exams to prepare yourself.
Mid-terms are the worst, having 3 the same week at the same time you have 2 papers due for other classes and all the while you're expected to go to lectures and tutorials...Brutal...

No. Finals you don't have class or any other assignments/labs. With midterms, everything happens at the same time.

This may be true, but on a whole, (at least at UBC) it smells a lot worse at school during Finals from people not going home to shower. bleh.

Fair enough, but while there may be less on your plate at the time, finals are a much bigger part of your grade and cover the whole class instead of the first few weeks.


Both situations suck though

False. I never applied to UBC because they don't have my faculty. Therefore, UBC sucks.

Same here. I'm happy doing my PhD within a department that is ranked highest within its field throughout all of Canada.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

I had the worst final exam schedule last semester! 4 exams in 4 days and then a 5 day gap before writing my last exam on the last possible day and the last possible time slot before I could leave.

I think if you have something like 3 finals in 2 days, you can apply to write the third on a different day. They're not trying to intentionally screw you over. Just ask your UGO.

I'm not sure about other schools but at UBC it's 3 in 24 hours. It's also your second exam that gets changed.

Yup, it's also 3 in 24 hours at the University of Ottawa.

This may be the Sauder in me talking, but kiddos in highschool: If you're from Vancouver planning on going to the Eastern side of Canada for school, really think about it carefully. I got accepted to Sauder and the Richard Ivey School of Business at UWO, and I was 95% certain that I was moving to London Ontario. I had some great conversations with some intelligent people, and decided to stay here and attend Sauder.

Fact is, I have already created such a strong connection base here in Vancouver: why let go of this?
In London, I would have to start from scratch and create an entirely new network.

Nowadays, we're all going to get the same education, it's all about who you know that is going to land you that job.

Think about it carefully!

An undergrad degree from SFU or UBC is worth about the same. I'm in the business program and chose Beedie over Sauder because they're Co op program is better, and their student endowment management program is larger. In terms of grad programs UBC is definitely better, but the schools in the East are still superior. So if you're planning to stay here it doesn't matter that much.

I completely agree with this except for engineering. UBC has way more options for it than SFU does. They both offer electrical, computer, fizz and biomedical (it's an electrical/computer option at UBC). SFU also has systems where UBC has civil, mechanical/mechatronics, geological, mining, chemical/biological, materials and integrated. Anyone who is unsure would be further ahead to pick UBC so they can leave all those doors open until the end of first year. On the other hand, if someone is totally sold on something SFU offers then I doubt it makes much of a difference.

Goodluck to those on applying. I can help anyone with questions in regards to Kwantlen and/or general BC Nursing programs. Honestly, if you guys have an average of 86, you can get into anything. Uni's aren't looking for the 99 average anymore... They look at your extracurricular's, volunteer work, your personality etc...

Grades aren't everything, but don't neglect them.
