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!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
EDIT: Just to give another update, I'm half-way through 3rd year right now. Just went through the PEY process and wrapped that up, so if you have any questions on any of that, I'd be more than happy to share some firsthand experiences!
I was also accepted to Waterloo, Ottawa, and Mac way back when, so you can ask q's about those as well.
So I'm in grade 12 and am going to be taking all the prerequisites for a program at St Clair college for the program "chemical laboratory technology" however, I am wondering from anyone of expirence with this or a similar engineering program if it is hard to find a job after graduation. I'm a bit skeptical that it is a 3 year program for only an advanced college diploma rather than a Bachelors. Other colleges in Ontario have this program aswell
I'm a grade 11 BC student who just recently had course selection and my counselor said that ubc drops your lowest grade 12 mark and you can switch it with a higher mark. For example, if you got a 75 in physics 12 and you achieved a 92 in physics 11, they'd allow you to use that 92 in place for your lower grade 12 mark. Is it true that ubc does that??
Basically what the title says, as I've heard it a lot on this forum. I mean, other schools like Queens/Western/Ryerson/Mcmaster can't be on the same tier as Lakehead /UOIT/York right? I'm just confused and don't want to mess up when applying.
I just got accepted into my #1 school yestersay and was instructed to accept the offer through OUAC, on ouac I found my offers page and clicked the one I wanted and selected 'accept' and then clicked 'save and continue' the status was then changed to 'unsubmitted acceptance'. When I went back this morning to see if anything had changed it had gone back to just listing the offer, no more 'unsubmitted acceptance'. I tried to accept again and once again got the unsibmitted acceptance message. Anybody know how to get around this?
So recently i've been looking at what degrees i want and where i would like to go. I've narrowed it down to 1. nursing 2. science and 3.engineering. I've been looking at universities like UofT, Waterloo, Sfu, and UBC. I went to the UofT nursing webpage and i wasnt able to find/figure out the admission requirements. i am a high school student in BC. Looking at my Pre-calculus 11 mark currently and i think my final grade is going to be a 75 average. Will i even have a chance getting into engineering at UofT....? I was planning on retaking but UofT doesn't even consider a redo at all. will any university accept me with a low grade 11 mark..?
*This forum is now open to everyone who got an acceptance from McGill, regardless of their field of choice. All students admitted to arts, literature, kinesiology, etc... are also welcome to post their acceptance. Good luck to those waiting for an acceptance! Post away!
Hello everybody from McGill!
I've seen a lot of forums related to acceptances from the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto. So this forum is to give students that got an offer from McGill University for engineering and computer science to post their offer. This to get an understanding of the students that are applying to McGill for the class of 2020 for an engineering, computer science or any science discipline.
Please include in your post:
1. Grade 12 first semester average
2. Field of engineering that you've been accepted to
3. Other universities that you have applied to, and whether you got an offer from them.
4. Province of residence 5. Any scholarships offered 6. Month of acceptance
This will give us all a general idea of the competition base for the applicants of 2016. Please feel free to add anything else you would like to (in addition to the specified things above).
Also, as the title gives away, if anyone has any questions regarding McGill Engineering or Computer Science, this is a good place to get them answered.
Also, all non-engineering and non computer science applicants who are applying to a science major in McGill are welcome to post their offers or ask any questions regarding their program of interest!
Post away everyone! And good luck to those who are still waiting for an offer from McGill ;-)
I can't test well in math, and overall I am just not good at math. I don' t know what I can do to become better! Does anyone have some strategies or tips? I am in grade 12 right now and taking calculus.
I have done research on this, and a lot of sources say, its about hardwork. I honestly am working so hard and not seeing results. I do all my homework (and I understand it), I ask the teacher questions whenever I don't understand something, and I listen in class.
When I Iog onto join.utoronto it says that I have been admitted to the engineering program for 2016. If I go onto OUAC however, nothing is posted. Also, if I click on the link that takes me to the Online Studen Profile, it also says decision pending. What does this mean?
