This is my first post here but have been lurking for MONTHS trying to keep the stress level at bay. I have a son that is a Senior with a 3.4 GPA and a 26 ACT score in CP/AP classes. He has a love of all things math and wants to study finance. He has always excelled in Math and Economics classes but had a rough Freshman year at a competitive private high school. That all being said, we are extremely proud of him so I will take my talented, handsome son and his 3.4 GPA and find him a great school! We have been in conversation with Admissions people in Concordia University and both he (and we) are excited about the possibility to study at JMSB. I have done extensive reading and we LOVE the city of Montreal and travel there quite a bit (we live in NH).
Can someone whose child attends Concordia give us some real world perspective? What are some of the advantages and disadvantages? What are some suggestions if this is our first choice? What would you do differently in terms of residence halls vs living on their own as freshmen?
I apologize for all the questions but everyone talks about McGill but when we are in Montreal everyone tells us for business Concordia is a top choice. Have we really found "the one"?
Thank you all in advance!
