I just sat on the panel for the March Open House today and got to see some prospective students. Towards the end, the questions started to gravitate heavily towards admissions averages. I just want to reiterate that extracurricular activities and one’s ability to communicate are very significant factors in the admissions process to Queen’s Commerce. Furthermore, focussing on those aspects instead of worrying about your average will benefit yourself as an individual much more in the long run.
As we get deeper into the admissions cycle, I wanted to offer some more food for thought towards the decision making process. It’s from one of my commerce classes this term:
Who am I?
Why am I here?
Where do I come from?
Where am I going?
Apparently these are questions that an actor asks him/herself to get into a role, but I think anyone can ask themselves these questions when a bit unsure about what direction to take forward. Sometimes, you can answer these questions really quickly and easily, whereas at other times, one or more questions may stump you. I think they’re good questions to ask yourself when you’re deciding where you want to spend the next four years of your life.
