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.
Let's start a thread for us to talk about our questions, share averages, extra curriculars, and even talk about our feelings right now going through the application process! Good luck to everyone applying this year!
Hello! I was wondering if any of the high school class of 2018 has heard back from Queen's engineering and if you have, what was your top 5 average?? :)
I was also wondering if I have any chance of being admitted if my marks are....
AP Chemistry: 88% (final)
AP Physics: 92% (in progress)
AP Calculus: 94% (in progress)
English (not AP): 90% (in progress)
AP Statistics (data management): 95% (final)
Edit: turns out I actually have a 92 in physics :))
Also, this doesn't go into the calculation of my average but if it helps I have a final mark of 93% in Advanced Functions
My ECs are decent, and I wrote all my AP's on my PSE so Queen's will know that I took them. I would say that my PSE is average, maybe slightly above average, although I know that this is very subjective. This was only my first submission average so hopefully I will be able to get it to 92.8% at least by April. Do you think I could possibly get in?
Hey everyone! I did one of these last year and it seemed to help a bunch of people so I thought it would be good to do one of these again. I'm currently in 2nd year Mechanical Engineering with co-op at uOttawa! Feel free to ask me anything about residence, campus life, living in Ottawa, academics (even outside of engineering), admission, etc etc! Whatever comes to mind! Some background info:
-I play on the quidditch team (it's a real thing and we're fantastic)
-I was in Civil Engineering first year, then switched into Mechanical this past summer
-I originally applied and got in for Electrical and Civil
-I lived in residence first year (go Stanton!) as I'm from the GTA
I have applied for undeclared engineering at ryerson without knowing how competitive this program might be compared to other engineering programs... Is this program more competitive and thus harder to get into for a high schooler? Please let me know down on the comments. Thanks
I've applied to civil engineering in multiple places but I want to go to U of T. I got into Ryerson, Waterloo and Western all with $2000 scholarships but have not heard back from u of t. I was wondering if you could tell me what you think my chances are?
Grades (top 6/required):
Functions: 92 (final)
English: 86 (final)
The average with these 5 is 93
My EC's are:
YWEG (young women's empowerment)
Executive of Health and Safety and CSR at a JA company
What's up boys. I am currently enrolled at Burhamthorpe Collegiate Institute. My average this semester is pretty decent, sitting at a 59.333%. I know this exceeds some of the averages at the top engineering school such as waterloo but I have extraordinary extracirruclars such as male prostitution, abortion enthusiast, and webcumming. I have recently acquired 62 matches on tinder being my all time high.
What are my chances for engineering at Canada's top universities?
I am a junior in high school and am considering applying for civil engineering programs in grade 12, specifically at Ryerson. I was just wondering, how hard is it to get into this program. I know that on their website it says u need an 80-85 average and Ryerson picks ur top six grade 12 courses to make ur admission average, which makes it seems really easy to get in. Am I right, or do I need an average in the high 80s to get in? I live in Ontario btw
Hey guys, just wondering what my chances are for UofT TrackOne for the year 2018 and what the expected admission average is. Also, how heavily weighted is the personal profile because I did pretty bad on it. If anyone else is applying, what are your averages, ECs, and how well your personal profile went?
Top 6 Marks:
MHF4UP - 90
MCV4UP - 95
SPH4UP - 94
ENG4UP - 90 (expected)
SCH4U1 - 95 (expected)
HRE4M1 - 100 (expected)
ECs from past 4 years:
- Leadership: Vice President of STUCO (2018), Minister of Arts and Culture of STUCO (2017), President of Canadian Pavilion for School's Culture Shock, DECA School's Director of Outreach (2018), Link Crew Ambassador
- Employment: Swim Instructor/Lifeguard for the City, and at a private organization
- Competitions: Competitor at DECA provincials (2017 & 2018), and HOSA Nationals
- Volunteering: Cadets, In-Pool Aquatics Volunteer, Peer Tutor, Event Assistant at MBC
- Miscellaneous: Jazz Band, Badminton Club
- Awards + Academics: 5 Advanced Placement courses, 80th percentile in Avogadro's Exam 2017, Advanced Rudiments (First Class Honours with Distinction), Distinguished Marksman
My Personal Profile:
I did really bad. Both oral questions, I've been cut off by the timer without being close to finishing. Other than that, my responses for all three questions were mediocre.
With people beginning to get accepted for the first wave in all Engineering programs, does anyone know what the admission average will be like for this year? I'm especially interested in Track One, but I only have a 93% average right now. Anyone who's been accepted already, it'll be wonderful if you took the time to quickly go over your average, ECs, personal profile, and obviously to what program please!
Side question, is admission average calculated by the 5 pre reqs, or with the addition to another U/M course?
I am a grade 12 student and I've applied to the following universities: U of t, Waterloo, York, and Ryerson. The programs that I have applied to are engineering, finance, and Mathematical and Physical sciences and my marks for the first OUAC transmission were:
Advanced functions 95
Data management 97
health and nutrition 94
I am taking English in private school and Chemistry in night school, and I haven't received a mark for English and Chemistry, but I will probably get a 90+. I was wondering if taking English and Chemistry outside of my day school is going to affect my admission?
