hi Physics Forums, im a long time lurker of this forum for physics/math help. now, i seek academic advice this year im in grade 12(final year), doing international baccalaureate diploma in ontario, canada. so far for post-secondary i have my eyes set on the aerospace engineering field. i know that toronto has an actual aerospace degree, offered through engineering science. however, i know that engineering science is not the only path for me. i know that i can do engineering at either of the three universities, which i all favor, and proceed to do a graduate degree at mcgill or toronto in aerospace. the help i am looking for, from you guys, is: what are the chances, if i complete an undergraduate degree, that i would get into a graduate aerospace program at either toronto or mcgill? also what are the pro/cons of either programs, to those who are completing/have completed them? how much will academics consume my life if i choose engineering science at toronto? (i am an avid recreation sport player, i love exercise and i would love to join an intermural league) should i actually consider waterloo? (from what i have heard/researched, waterloo is only good for high tech stuff, like computer and electrical, and aerospace requires fluid courses) how much does bilingualism help in getting a job? (french and english) what job opportunities are offered through engineering physics? what kind of internships at toronto would i get from studying it? how much of a role do friends from university play in life after school?(from what my parents tell me high school friends are the most important, and at school right now i feel like i fit in between two "groups", i havnt found anyone like me, and would like to meet someone) also, what are the dating scenes like between the three universities? i am a guy. also, here are some facts about me that i thought id share (that are related to this thread): -im pretty brilliant in french -im oriental, and my parents want me to go to a university with a reputation -im curious of living montreal/european cities -i live an hour from downtown toronto -i have a strong base of friends at waterloo -i know absolutely no-one at mcgill -taboo by my parents, i want to meet new people and explore life out of my sheltered life, not just academics -i enjoy music -i enjoy challenges and having said all of that, id appreciate advice of above all, just where to go! thank you in advance to all who reply.
