Congratulations! After five years of High School, you graduated!

Go in Social Science.

After your father's decision, you don't have a choice so you go in Social Science. You realize that you actually like the description of this program and maybe it's not a bad choice. But now, your family is going to move in another town. You have to decide if you want to stay at Montmorency of if you want to change your CEGEP.

Choice 1 : Stay At Montmorency.

Choice 2 : Find another CEGEP.


Stay At Montmorency.

The distance between your home and your school is really long. You feel really tired at the end of every day. It was okay in the beginning of the session but right now, you couldn't take it anymore. Today, you have a bip test in your fitness class and you feel really bad. You didn't have the time for a good breakfast and you hesitate between your fitness class or Tim Hortons because you are really hungry.

Choice 1 : Go to your fitness class.

Choice 2 : Go to Tim Hortons.

Find another CEGEP.

You are lucky. There's one place in Social Science at Edouard Monpetit and the CEGEP is at fifteen minutes in a bus from your new location. It's a new beginning in a different town and you're a little stressed. There are construction work on the way you usually use and now you don't know if you ask someone or you use your data and find yourself a way to the school.

Choice 1 : Ask someone.

Choice 2 : Use your data.


Go to your fitness class.

You believe that you are strong enough to do test. When you arrive at your class, everybody seems in good form except for you. You don't lose your faith and yo go on the line. The test began but after five minutes, you faint. When you wake up, they inform you that you can't do sports because your heart is fragile so you finish your sessions and graduated without doing it anymore. Great! Now, it's time to decide in which University you are going to do your baccalaureate in Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention.

Choice 1 : University of Montreal.

Choice 2 : University of Laval.

Due to your lack of sense of direction, you decide to ask someone. Every time you try to talk to someone, they don't know or they don't have your time.

University of Montreal.

You have a car now so it's easy for you to go to school. You really like your new university and mostly your program. Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention is perfect for you because you always wanted to learn and use the criminal code. There are two choices of internships : the first one is at a prison and the second one is at a detention for minor. It's good for you because you are going to have a foot in a door of being a criminologist.
