an excerpt from 2009 supplementary form:

Should I be accepted into the Schulich School of Business, I will use all resources and acquired knowledge to meticulously investigate the proposed economic solutions of a host of mainstream and dissident ideologies, making sure to consult my classmates to ascertain possible flaws or suggestions that may buttress my findings. The BBA program seems to me the only eclectic approach to satiating an almost unsatisfiable urge to view the economy beyond the scope of a single, economic ideology. During class I will be an attentive student, an active participator, and intrepidly challenge different views with which I disagree as I see fit. As such, classmates will benefit by being introduced to new viewpoints, which may interest them in being more diligent in evaluating what one learns. Outside classes I will eagerly profess my willingness for solidarity to any student that wishes to join my troupe on the way to success; by helping and being helped do we both prosper socially and intellectually. Economics is a dismal science, and the onus is on the students to study substantive tendencies and the dispositions of human nature, on which we capitalize to shape a society better suited to said tendencies. I will encourage my peers to carry comprehensive views about the economy, such that we can, efficaciously through debate or other means, troubleshoot and propose original solutions, fittingly at a time of pervasive turmoil.

Well it means you won't have work experience when someone else does. Aka, lack of initiative, "unproven" ability to work outside of academics.

I'm pretty sure he would know more than you..

One of my distant uncles is a professor at Ryerson and he said that he heard that this year Schulich is going to be putting more emphasis on the supplementary.

It's "Bachelor of Arts, Honours Business Administration." So yes, it's an arts degree, but in retrospect, top business schools world-wide do not offer BBA or BComm's but rather BS/BA in Economics, Business Administration, Finance, etc.

you quote schulich website as a source of schulich's superiority. how naive are you? also, read: brampton, brown skin.
also, minimum of 90.5? that's a lie and they know it. someone whom i know in real life got an offer to iBBA with a 87 average. In fact, this year, Schulich couldn't even fill up the iBBA quota because people didn't accept Schulich's offer.

Pathetic.
