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.

So I applied for the Management Co-op program at UTSC. However, I got an alternative offer for Social Science and Humanities. Also on my joinID profile, the management program isn't there anymore. Does that mean I have no chance at all for the Management and pre-management program? Considering that they still havent gotten my midterm marks yet.
I have been offered a place in the MMSc program at UW. Being an international student I want to know how is the job scenario in Canada after graduating from your masters studies.
I've read that Waterloo has co-ops opened for graduate students of Management Science as well. But I've also heard that they're really competitive to fetch. I'm looking towards a career in Business Intelligence/Analytics and I want to know if this course suits my career path that I want to set for myself.
If there is anyone currently pursuing this program or anyone who can help me with these questions of mine I would really appreciate it.
So I applied to U of T and Ryesrson and UOIT for Life Science but I really don’t plan on going to med school cause I’m not really interested in doing that. The only reason I applied to those is because I though I would be interested but something happened in my life and changed my whole outlook and Business management or Policing is what I actually want to do in life. Is it too late to switch programs and apply to crim or business I’m in a grade 12 and it’s the end of February right now. My marks are good so I don’t thinks it’s a problem of getting in but if it’s too late to apply. Or would I get into life science at utsc or ryerson and then transfer into business management, but I don’t know how that would work and the process. I know I messed up and changed it late but it’s better now than when I actually go to university I guess?
Hi, I'm a Ryerson first year and I want to switch to Business. And yeah, I only have two months of school left but I applied to business and I just want to work until next school year. But if I just disappear now from school, I would fail. And I heard if I drop out, I have to pay back OSAP all the money, even the grant. I don't really care if I fail this course but I don't want it to look bad under my name when I get into business - hoping anyways.
i have a 64 in advanced functions and i applied to the business management program at ryerson, im currently taking calculus and thats the recommended math for that program. do you think i will get accepted with the functions mark i have? has anyone had a low functions mark and still get in?
Hi, I'm a grade 12 student from Ontario with an average around a 95% in my top 6. I know the 2017 cutoff for McGill's Management was a 94.5%, what are the chances of the average going up or down? Would a 95% be safe?
Hi, I'm a grade 12 student studying in Ontario and have applied to the commerce program at the University of Western. I'm a bit confused because there doesn't seem to be a supplementary app for business (unless i just haven't been able to locate it), while all the other commerce programs have their supplementary apps due quite soon. If you know whether or not there's a commerce app (not the one for AEO) and if so where to find it, please let me know! Thank you!
i am bit concerned about getting in because my math is like in the 40's but everything else is like in 90's . Although a lot of people are saying ryerson is not get hard to get into...im worried because most business programs are competitive...if i manage to get like a 65 as my final math mark will i get in still?
Hi, I've applied to both Uoft (st. george) and Mcgill for their business programs and I'm looking for some advice on which school you think is better. Ranking wise, I know Rotman has better research and a better rep but I want to get a good feel for each school, rankings aside. If you have any experience or can comment on the difficulty, competitiveness, job opportunities, schooling in general, or the university please let me know! Also, if I currently have around a 94 average (hoping to bump it up by February) what are my chances of getting into the schools? Side note: I'm planning to take calculus out of my day school and it doesn't start until late february, will that affect my chances of getting into McGill, since I know offers go out right after apps are due?
Some people that I know (and trust) have laid out a path for me, thought it's very vague: It involves somehow combining Finance and computer science in university and that's all I know. The idea is to work in the finance sector but having computer science as a nonetheless necessary skill. Can anybody suggest how I might go about this? Major in one, minor in the other? Undergrad in one, masters in the other?
I am interested in university of Toronto, however the BComm. in Finance and Economics comes as a specialist degree, which doesn't leave much room for compSci. Pls help!!
Hey, I've been visiting a few universities for business programs (such as rotman, ted rogers, and schulich) and they said that first year will be more of a generalized business program, I haven't taken any accounting in grade 11 or 12 and I was wondering if that will put me in a disadvantage for first year? Thanks for your help!
I want to go into business Human Resources and I was looking at UBC's commerce program and the management program. I'm having a hard time choosing between the two as they both offer the opportunity to focus on HR in the later two years. what's the difference between the two? and the management program is at the Okanagan campus, commerce is at sauder school of business.
I'm transferring to UTM from SFU and I've been studying at Beedie for a year now. My dad's job transfer suddenly got approved so I need to move to Ontario by the end of August. None of us were anticipating it so I took 2 summer courses. I got a really bad mark in my midterm for one of the courses and I'm doing alright in the other one. I'm scared I'm gonna get a C and a B- in these courses. One of the conditions in my admission letter says that I need to maintain a 3.0 gap but I'm afraid it will drop below 3.0 as it is currently 3.06. I won't know for sure till the end of August. Is my admission at risk if my gap falls below 3.0? They told me they usually finalize the admission on August 15th but that is the day of my exam. Can they decline you at the end of august?
So I was accepted to McGill Management at Desautels with a 95 average and at the time i had a 94 in calculus. Now my calculus grade dropped to 80 (all my other grades relatively the same). Im worried my offer will be rescinded because calculus is a prequisite course and they ask for 85%
Does anyone know what this course will be like? What kind of classes do you need to take for this course? Is there a lot of math even though the course has a management option? What kind of job can you get?
Im debating on doing management engineering at waterloo or Computer science at Laurier. I have a bunch of questions for current students or alumni
what are the courses like? how hard are the courses? Is it hard to maintain 75 average to qualify for coop?
what is an example of first year tuition (estimated amount you paid or are paying including res) how can I minimize costs for uni?
***What is coop like? how much are the salaries each year? Specifically in this degree , can you pay off tuition with just working during coop terms? With the degree is it possible to get hired in Cali? (most important question)
All in all, is management engineering at waterloo worth the big cost?
Currently, I am a Grade 11 student. I am thinking to apply to Western Science and Health Science, UOttawa Biology and Telfer (Finance and Management) and quite possibly McMaster for Life Sci or Guelph.
My grades are the following:
Predicted marks for this semester
French3U and Religion3u are mandatory since I go to a french first language high school which is catholic. I see that most students get Early Acceptance to programs but have Grade 11 averages in the 90s. Can I get into any of the programs that I want to apply for early admission.
