yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.

So I kinda messed up this term big time, and unless there's a miracle for me, I don't know if I have much of a shot at UBC, which is my top choice. I'm wondering if I have a good shot at Uvic (my second choice) for Music & Computer Science.
Pre-Calc 12: 73%
Physics: 59% (yeah...)
AP Computer Science: 92%
French 12: 78%
Unweighted Average: 79%
That being said, I just recently self reported for the degree and, since they didn't demand to self report every single grade, I reported the available high marks I have and according to the system, my estimated average is 85.75%.
My supplemental application included:
-7 years of drumming
-Coding experience with C#, Java, and Python
-Some amateur experience in writing and mastering music
-My soundcloud + a song from the 80s I fan remastered
While googling, I noticed not all OUAC programs I applied to will have a rejection or offer status (i.e. some will remain blank) and it's probably more reliable to go with email correspondences for rejections. For offers, I believe it takes 1-2 days for the OUAC portal to get the updated information.
So now I have a few questions on the back of my head:
1. Besides universities that only offer acceptance to only one program, will all other programs be courteous enough to provide an offer or rejection email/mail correspondence?
2. Because we can apply to entrance bursaries and scholarships even before receiving an offer of acceptance, when does it make sense to accept an offer way ahead of time? This isn't anything like for Med School or Ivey but more a Math/Business or Business programs.
I don't want to accept an offer only to rescind it towards the end because that can screw up someone else's spot.
Hi there, I recently got accepted to Medical Physics program at Ryerson University. However, due to life circumstances, I decided to change my program to Architecture Science. I was just wondering if it is possible?
I have applied to Western BMOS for my undergrad hoping to achieve the AEO status. However, I must write a 500 word essay concerning 3 extra curricular activities that demonstrate leadership, teamwork, initiative, achievement, commitment and breadth.
In addition, I must write another 500 word essay regarding my work experience and it's responsibilities.
I am really struggling and worried about writing this.
I truly do want to make the essay perfect and I'm not too sure how to even start.
Hey guys, so I recently completed my McMaster Engineering supplementary application. I screwed up to be blunt, I feel decent about the video portion, but for the written portion I was unable to finish and it cut me off while I was typing (I know I'm stupid). My average is currently 92, but it should go up in second semester since my booster course is in that semester. Honestly, I just want to know my chances, just be honest please.
So I applied to BMOS at western and I am currently in grade 12. My top 6 marks average will be around a 90% however I have also taken two other timetable fillers that are not included in my top 6 which averages are around a 60%. Does that ruin my chances for getting in??
I also applied to MIT what are my chances of getting in there as well??
So today i applied to all of my programs and payed for them as well. Although, once i was done it said that it can take up to two weeks for my application to process. Does this mean that my applications won't be in before the deadline?
I've just applied to all the business schools that i'm looking to go to (hopefully), and all of them require a supplementary application. However, I can't find anything about a supplementary for Ted Rogers. Is there any???
Overall I love Carleton's PAPM course b/c it allows you to choose an overarching specialization as well as a concentration within that specialization geared more towards what you love so it's more tailored to you as a student and your exact preferences that range within that area of study but UOttawa offers French Immersion which is invaluable. It ensures that you learn the second language which is a huge advantage in this area of work. Along with PoliSci i'm also interested in International development which is what I'd choose as my concentration in the PAPM program. Because UOttawa's program is less specialized i'm not sure whether that equates to less opportunities etc.
I am currently a grade 12 student in Ontario. I did ENG4U in summer school with an 83, and my ENG3U was really bad with a 67(I heard people said uni doesn't care about g11 marks so I had never cared about ENG3U + my 3U teacher hated me lmao) and took Adv Func g11 with a 94. My current marks for G12 are
ENG 83 (final)
Adv Func 94 (final)
physics 92(probably won't be in my top 6 since I am having data management and CS in next semester and I am extremely good at these 2(Have programming certificate from CMU and got high 90s in G11 for CS and I have learned Data back to days I was studying SAT)
I am aiming for high 90s in all my courses and my predicted average is around 94-95(pulled down by English), I heard people say everybody who got accepted into CS has a high 80s-low90s in English. Does anyone know will my low English mark affect my application to UofT Com Sci and what are my chances to get in?
Cuz if the chances aren't great I might apply to Mathematics and Physics and study Financial economics(my buddy tell me Rotman isn't that good for applying master in the states since they give you a low GPA)
So I pressed "agree and verify" in 101 application, and it let me choose one way to pay and I chose "online banking". I already payed in my online banking account, but now when I log back into OUAC, it says "$0". Do I need to press some button on the site to input my payment reference number to confirm, or do I just need to wait a few days?
I dropped my chemistry yesterday. On OUAC current grade site, I am still "current enrolled" in this course. I am scared that university will see this first and then it disappears after a few days, which is considered as "dropping" course.
In the OUAC 101, there is a academic background section. "Provide information about all institutions where you have registered in 1 or more secondary or postsecondary courses. Institutions include, but are not limited to, regular day schools, night schools, summer schools, online schools." In the questions below, I need to choose Diploma/Degree Type which makes me a little confused. Does anyone know how to do this part?
So basically I get 85 on euclid contest in grade 11. And I heard that since 2018 the cemc begins to pay attention to those who did a good job in euclid in gr 11. Does this give a boost in my application?
So currently I am in grade 12. I have 7 U/M courses, 1 of them is chemistry which is super bad. I know that chemistry won't be counted into the average since its the 7th one, but would university mind my bad score? Do I need to drop this course?
About a year ago i began attending McMaster university for Engineering.
I finished off last year with a 3.7 GPA out the the 12 GPA standard system at McMaster, leaving me as a Transition student (Engineering Non-Degree).
I am looking into applying to different universities for the 2018 Fall term but im not sure what to do.
I had a great highschool average, with a gr12 avg of 92. I was wondering if itd be possible to apply to other universities with just my highschool marks? Im not looking into transferring any credits anyways. I wanna go into either engineering again or computer science but not at mcmaster as it just doesnt feel like the right school for me.
If i send in both my first year and highschool marks what are my chances of getting into engineering at a different school? If i apply for computer science would they even look at my first year marks as they arent the same program?
I applied to three programs at Ryerson, and sent in my transcripts back in January. I recently withdrawn one of my applications and switch it for another program at Ryerson. Does anybody know if i have to send in my transcripts again? Or does anybody know the email to ask admissions about it?
I've applied for Mcmasmter, Western, University of Toronto Mississauga, Queen's, and Ryerson all for social sciences. So far I'll mostlikely be passing English with 70-72. I have an 87 in my World Issues course and around 80-82 in my Law class. My question is, would I be able to get accepted into any of these with a 70 in English but 80s in everything else. If not, should I retake the course? For more information my main university I want to get into is Mcmaster, and it says the minimum is a 75 for overall average.
I am currently working on French 12 online and plan to use that as one of my top 4 in my applications to Queen's Smith, McGill Desautels and Western Ivey. My online school doesn't have the same semester system as my high school-you can continue working on it until a year after you enrol, but I am curiousif there are deadlines to have your online courses done for those universities? I know at UBC you have to finish by February 1 because if not they worry you will never finish it! Any input helps, thanks!
