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.
Hey guys! I'm just looking for some opinions on good schools for environmental studies programs (in the arts, though I do enjoy some bio). I'm currently looking at Dalhousie (for either science or arts, I've gotten into both), Queen's (arts), or McGill (arts, specifically the environment and development program). If anyone has had any suggestion, points to keep in mind, etc. please share!
I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about the Trent conservation biology program? It is new this year and I heard that acceptances will have to go out later due to finalization of the course. Does anyone know any more information on this? Thanks!
So I know that this is obviously much different depending on the school but I was wondering how much one poor mark will affect your chances? My last semester was:
Advanced Functions: 75
Math has never been my strong suit. My program requires advanced functions however it does not focus on it much in the actual course. Will that 75 be a big deal? I will have 7 credits this year but since advanced functions is required for the course I was not too sure how heavily they will weigh it. My program is Conservation Biology at Trent. I know Trent is not the most competitive school but this is a new program so there will be a lot of transfers applying as well. Thanks.
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!
