As the deadline to apply to university approaches, students and parents asked author Erin Millar their questions

  • If you or your children are thinking about applying to universities next year, you probably have a lot of questions about what to think about: Small school with a focus on teaching, or research-intensive? What about living away from home for the first time? How about budgeting, studying and staying healthy?

    Readers asked Erin Millar their questions in a live discussion Oct. 27, 2011. To read a recap of the chat, scroll down.

    Ms. Millar is a Vancouver-based journalist and author whose writing about university life has appeared in The Globe and Mail, Maclean's, Reader's Digest, Sun Media, Canadian Living and other publications. Her first book, The Canadian Campus Companion: Everything you need to know about going to college and university in Canada, was published by Thomas Allen in 2011. Erin has reported from Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Jordan, Israel and Qatar.
