Hi PhysicsForums, I just finished my second year at a canadian community college (Langara) with a 3.8/4.33 gpa for the year and am currently weighing my options for universities. The universities I'm considering are uAlberta, SFU, and uVic. As I understand, the physics programs at these universities are ranked uAlberta > SFU > uVic. However, I did rather badly in my first year at the CC, and because of this, I am ineligible for the Honors Physics program at uAlberta. My question is which path would be better to actualize my grad-school intentions, attending honors physics at SFU or the general degree program at uAlberta?
