For anyone else out there who obsesses over numbers, I did some statistics based on a 3-year average (2015-2017), with numbers plucked from the official dean's reports (2015) (2016) (2017). Every year on average, there are: 2,577 total applicants ... (2,473 + 2,775 + 2,483) / 3 449 candidates invited to interview ... (457 + 441 + 449) / 3) 171 seats filled (133 in London, 38 in Windsor) - this has been the same for the last 3 years. A first year class with a demograph of 58.3% male and 41.7% female ... Males: (61 + 59 + 55) / 3 ... Females: (39 + 41 + 45) / 3 17.4% of all applicants get an interview ... (449/2,577)*100 6.6% of all applicants get a seat ... (171/2,577) * 100 38.1% of interviewees get a seat ... (171/449) * 100 NOTE: These statistics do not consider waitlist movement, which can actually be huge in some years (e.g. the 2017 Dean's reports suggest that, for applicants from SW Ontario alone, 72 were offered acceptance into the program, while only 42 of those accepted the offer - that's a waitlist movement of 30 people!) Feel free to check the math, add anything I missed, or discuss below.
Hey guys, So i was accepted into the u of calgary's biological sciences program and i was wondering what option i should take. I wanted to take psycology but i'm already taking a math, bio, chem, and physics class so I fear psycology will be to much. How hard is the class?(psyc) I'm atrocious at english so I also fear any class where I have to write an essay. I know I will have to write one at some point but hey, ignorance is bliss. Any advice anyone? Thanks a lot Mike
i'm not sure if this is the right place to ask because it's flowing with canadian students and maybe some US students... but i desperately need help for the QR section this is just a small manipulation of a question i did... i just wanted to see if i'm doing it right Question: You are travelling to South America in two weeks. A friend bought you 5 watches and 6 pairs of sunglasses. You can bring at least 2 watches and at least 1 pair of sunglasses, and can only bring 4 items (so you don't lose all of them). How many combinations of watches and sunglasses can you have? This is my thought process: First, 5C2 (for the at least 2) = 10 Second, 6C2 (to fill remaining last 2 "spots") = 15 Multiply subsets = 150. 5C3 (since it was at least 2) = 10 6C1 (to fill in last spot) = 6 Multiply subset = 60 Add 150+60 = 210 possible combinations.... is this correct? is my thought process right. with the limit of "4 items" i feel like i didn't need to add "at least 1 pair of sunglasses" what if the question instead stated, "you only want to bring 2 watches and 2 sunglasses...." then would it just be 5C2 = 10 6C2 = 15 and then multiply? to get 150 combinations? thanks all good. figured out
