I am in my senior years. I am applying to the University of Toronto, St.George Campus as my first, the other campus ranking in 2nd and 3rd. I have applied to University of Waterloo in Canada as well. However, my real problem/question is "Do I have what it takes?" Last year in (I don't know the proper term for certain course in different countries, so I'll name it as "Grade 12/Year 13 Physics") Grade12/Year13 Physics, I got around 82%. I want to study Physical Science, mainly Physics. Most of my Asian male peers (some females too) all decided to go for Engineering; I have been told the reason is because of good $$$. I personally do not care about it, but is Engineering the most difficult science to get into since so many people want to get into it? I mean did all of your asian male peers in your old physics class all went to engineering? Did any of them considered going into Physical Science? Or did they go to Life science/Medical school? Engineering vs Physical Science (general science study like biology, chemistry, physics etc) vs Life science/medical school Which is harder to get into? I personally don't mind Engineering, but I really prefer to go into Physics. Please someone give me your words of wisdom. I will try to elucidate on things that are unclear.
