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!

Hey guys, I'm currently in Grade 12 in Ontario and am trying to decide which universities to apply for (Ontario Universities). I am interested in Biology/Life Science and will probably pursue grad school after my bachelors (but not med cause i know that i don't want to be a doctor). I've heard that grad schools will look at your GPA when you're applying and i know that some universities are harder to get a higher GPA in (like UofT life sci). At the moment, I'm thinking of applying for waterloo, guelph, mcgill, western & mcmaster. So...
a) how important is a high GPA when applying for grad school
b) how hard is it to get into grad school
c) is it hard to find a job as a bio/life sci graduate without grad school
d) good ontario university suggestions that will give you a good quality of education while being able to keep up a relatively high GPA
Thanks guys!! and if anyone happens to know any really good bio/life sci careers that are well paying that is not being a doctor, suggestions are appreciated!!
Hi there!!!! I am in 3rd year Animal Biology at the University of Guelph and will be available all weekend if you have any questions about science at Guelph or Guelph in general! I can answer very specific Animal Biology questions but im sure all be able to answer any BSc questions in general as well. Also, if you have a question about a different program I can try to help out! Ask away :)
I applied to Guelph Queens and McMaster for honours science. I've been accepted to Guelph early but that's because their cutoff is low for their bio program. I was wondering what my chances are to get into Queens science? I have an average of 90.5 and a gr 11 average of 89.5, I have a moderately strong PSE.
I'm hoping to be acceoted into Guelph's BBRM equine management program, and an trying to plan how I'm going to schedule stuff, school, work, barn, etc. Was wondering if anyone could share their class schedule/timetable and if you were able to balance a job with school and other activities? Thanks in advance:)
Hey guys, I remember when I was in high school trying to decide where to apply and this forum really helped so if you have any questions about Guelph (campus, residence, courses, science programs, campus life, admissions etc.) i can try to help out as best i can!
Any opinions on the University of Guelph, just in general and/or specifically any of the following programs: animal biology, animal science, zoology, wildlife conservation, and equine management. Thanks in advance!
Although I am on the go with Online Classes, working towards either a Certificate in Equine Science or a Diploma in Equine Science, I am considering the Exercise Rider Jockey Training Program at Olds College for next year (January 2017). I'd be coming from out of Province but have family in Edmonton currently.
I was wondering if anyone on here has done this program or known someone who has done this program within the last few years. How was it? What did you love? What did you hate? Does the College offer residence for this program? Did you learn a lot? What did you find to be the hardest part of the program? Any tips or advice? What would you recommend for fitness training/preparation? For mental preparation? Was the course primarily male or female dominant?
I wanted to know if there are any students on here who are doing or who have done Vet Tech / Animal Health Tech.
Where did you go?
How much was it?
Did you like it?
Did it prepare you for your job?
Was it 2 year or longer course?
Was their options for Equine classes? What are you currently doing? Do you have any recommendations to help get a better job in the field?
From what we were told in our Co-op class, In NB, the average Vet Tech makes around $12.50/$13.00. However, I don't mind relocating. What does the average Vet Tech in your Area make?
I'm currently on a "work break" after graduating High School in June. I plan to work for a solid year or two, to save up as much as I can before heading away to University. The less debt I can come out with the better, right? Haha. I plan to do Vet Tech, focusing in Livestock/Equine. Afterwards get an Equine-extension through University of Guelph. However I'm not quite sure I have decided where to do my Vet-Tech program at. I am in New Brunswick, so I was thinking Dalhousie University in Truro (Former NSAC) as they are located on the Agricultural Campus and have the option for an Equine Elective.
Is there anything I could do to help prepare me for Vet Tech? I am planning on trying to get some Shadowing/Volunteer work done at a Vet Office starting this upcoming Spring.
I graduated meeting requirements for Dalhousie*, my main course grades are as follows:
Hi everyone ! I just try to post a huge thing but I lost it all bruuuhh. Anyway, I am currently studying in a Biology Major at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. I want to transfer in Applied Biology. Here are my two questions : How will they review my application, with only university grade (i juste started my first year) or with both CEGEP + university. After, what it the general average and the GPA average to get in Applied Bio?
Thanks so much
