Hey Payton,

Great round of research! I find it interesting that only 40-50% of people get accepted into UBC considering I know many people that have been excepted into there. Something that I have been wondering about your topic is "Do universities in Kenya specialize in different things than Canada? or do any of the universities even specialize in anything? For example I've heard that BCIT has a great nursing program which they specialize in.  Here are some links on universities and their specialities. I can't wait to read your next round of research.

Hi Payton,

Are you interested in looking at the variety of programs that these universities offer? If so, it might be cool to compare similar programs from different universities and see which ones are "the best" or even the best for different learning types. Or even looking into smaller post secondary education options and what their benefits and drawbacks are.

Good work!
