Queens has different criteria than U of T for how full of a course load you had to have taken in a year for it to be counted towards your b2 or 3. My B3 (for U of T) incorporates a year that Queens wouldn’t count because it was a 60% course load, which U of T counts as full-time but Queens doesn’t. That year was a very good one, so it brings it up quite a bit.
Just looking for honest opinions and stories re: moving for school. Do you regret moving, do you wish you would have stayed? Was it the best experience of your life? I am just curious.
Small background: I have established a career in the legal field in the city i'm currently in. I am not tied to family but do have a few close friends and important people I will miss and I am a bit nervous thinking about moving somewhere I don't know anyone. If it matters, I am hoping I get into UBC but may also consider an Ontario school and I am from Alberta.
I didn't get much of a competitiveness vibe when I went to UBC. It certainly wasn't encouraged or instilled by faculty. People didn't talk about their marks much, they aren't posted, and course prizes aren't announced.
Of course the student body changes year to year, so your mileage may vary.
