  2. Every time I read or hear this I want to know how that person passed high school exams with high enough grades to get in to university or college, not judging but just curious. It' tough to get in, how are they doing it?

  5. its not that hard to get into UW. these people take 12U english at private schools ($=90%). that's how my korean buddy got into uoft. he's at harvard now, so i don't really know how important it is to know the use of apostrophes.
