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.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!

Got accepted to Waterloo Architecture yesterday (April 26)! Just wondering who else got in?
UPDATE: Also just got accepted to McGill! (April 28)! Anybody else??
Debating now between U of T, Waterloo, and McGill. Also feel free to share what you thought about the précis test and the rest of the application as well and what other universities you have been admitted for/are waiting on.
General discussion for ppl applying to urban and regional planning. its my first pick so im really interested, if any current students or alums can give a little insight on their experiences. I applied to OCADU for environmental design, also architecture and urban planning at ryerson.
So with the many options for architecture undergrad programs in Ontario, I was wondering what some of the pros and cons were to some of the popular universities such as Waterloo, Ryerson, UofT, Carleton etc.
Are there any programs that offer you a minor or double major along with architecture (for instance in business). I'm not completely sure if I wanna do architecture for the rest of my life, so I wanted to be able to explore some other options.
Also, does Waterloo allow you to do exchange programs along with Co-op?
I want to go into architecture and applied to U of T, Guelph (for Landscape), Waterloo Planning, Ryerson Architecture and Waterloo Architecture. I don't know if I'm getting ahead of myself here assuming I might get in to the programs. My grade 11 top 6 marks (with prerequisites) were:
Adv Func 68
Tech Design 94
Do I even have a chance? I know I can bring my math mark up this year to 70-78% which is what I'm worried about and my physics mark which is at 78% right now...
I know waterloo has co-op for its architecture program, I've also heard that u of t architecture is very theory based, also heard that Ryerson has a decent program. Can someone tell me about their experience at different schools? Did you find that architecture is something you want to do in life after studying program? Which school has a higher employment chance after graduating from the University?
What are the job markets for these fields? People said that u can get a job with a engineering degree right after graduation, whereas u need at least a PhD to get a decent job with a science degree. So if I get a bachelor's of art or science for the architecture program I might choose, the job market wouldn't be as good as it would be for civil engineering?
Also, what's the difference between civil engineering and architecture? And which one of architecture and landscape architecture has a better prospect?
who is currently in or has graduated from UofT's undergrad architecture program? How was it, was it good? were you able to apply to american schools for your masters? such as Harvard, MIT, Cornell? And were you able to find a good job/co op/internship before, during or after? Also, is the undergrad program recognized internationally?
