In the 9th grade, I talked to my favourite English teacher and asked for his advice on where to go. He told me the 2 colleges he went to, and I looked into them. Vanier seemed perfect for me and what sealed the deal was when I went to the Open House. I fell in love with the campus. 2 years later, applications commenced. It cost $30 to apply, and once accepted, it cost roughly $200 to confirm my acceptance.
The course curriculum honestly resembles high school too much only 3 of my courses were chosen by me, and they were incredibly limited. The rest, such as physical education and English, were forced into the curriculum.
I chose this college because the 151 bus brought me door to door from Sainte Rose which was really convenient. I had trouble getting into my program for two semesters because of the competition there was for computer science and building systems and tech. Ever since grade school, I've been on the honor roll every single term and year (80+ average) and I struggled to get into my program regardless until I called admissions to fight for my spot. The person I called was Michelle and she really pushed the college because my program had only 23 spots in it and she pushed them to create the 24th spot for me due to my competitive grades.
I hate R scores. Doesn't matter how well you're doing because your classmates will bring you down in comparison. The teachers and everything are alright but the r score calculation is completely of no use.
I went to this college because most of my friends went there and it was close by if you were to drive so that was also another reason to go there. My sister had gone there also so I had a good understanding of what kind of school it is.
The course curriculum is something that needs to be followed so that everything goes smooth with the program you in which also makes life easier since you know that if you do one classless you know which one you need to catch up.
It had an amazing science program, a lot of choices for the classes, and it was near to me. Also, it was very affordable. Additionally, it was a bigger school, so I liked that there would be more people.
It's well balanced for my needs. It also focuses more on what I like. I don't have too much biology and I have a lot of math courses, which I enjoy. It's also not too many classes in one semester and it even relaxes after the first two.
I live in Quebec where most schools are in French. I wanted to go to Vanier College because it was in English and was not too far. It is well located, there are many buses, the metro, restaurants near it. Also, student life is amazing. The college really pushes students to get involved which creates a good environment.
There are many courses to take at Vanier College. One thing that stands out from other Colleges is that we get to pick our whole schedule. Unlike other schools, we are not given any schedules randomly. We choose our teachers and the time for our courses.
It was close to my house and I only have to take one bus. I knew people that went there and they said they liked. Plus, I knew most of friends were going there, which also helped me pick this school. I also like there are different courses and various options for my complementary.
It's definitely a lot of courses to take and very hard to balance with the number of projects and assignments the teachers give. There are a lot more government requirements than the actual program I took it on, which was surprising to me but, I would understand because it's public.
It was closer to my house, therefore less travelling and more studying! I used to go to a french highshcool, so I wanted to learn english therfore I chose Vanier since it was more lineant language wise!
I did Commerce! Most classes were related some could of been options as electives instead for example, pshycology and history could of been electives instead of program classes! Because once in University, you won't have much knowledge and you'll basically have to press the restart button and forget whatever u learned in college!
