That first degree is from Humber College. Bachelor of Arts- Paralegal Studies. I'm also a licensed paralegal. A whack of universities are really annoying about it. Under Mike Harris' Premiership, Ontario's government allowed colleges to provide degrees that are "Honours" degrees. Universities were not pleased at the time because they need to maintain their monopoly.
Reasons the college v. university distinction or debate is annoying:
1) A Bachelor of Applied Technology or Applied Science aren't considered any less special than a B. Sc.
2) Engineering, or physics that are applied sciences, are not any less highly regarded than a B. Sc in Biology or Chemistry
3) A Bachelor of Arts in History or Philosophy or English are all deemed to be relevant. So is Business Administration as a degree. Paralegal Studies was a combo of substantive law and business management.
4) I graduated 5th in my class of 60.
The culture of higher education is really frustrating. I sat on student government and on the professional associations for paralegals. The number of ironies and double-negatives and logical fallacies present in both is absurd.
I don't understand why law schools equate a Bachelor of Music or BFA, with a Bachelor in Engineering with a Bachelor of Arts in Music.
My combined GPA is 85.6. My last two years are an average of 88. Both are 3.8.
I'm not a negative person, I swear, I just worked really hard and the material was not at all easy.
