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.
What should I do? I want to pursue business in University
hopefully schulich but I can't write! My average for english is a 74 right now. Its not only english I'm struggling with though, I have other courses that involves writing such as international business and psychology but my work sucks!! I don't know how to write better or to improve. My english teacher recommends that I read more books but I don't think that will help.
I believe there are a lot of essays in University, I don't want to fail.
Has anyone applied or will apply to a writing program here? I'm just curious. I'm a writer and I'm interested in these programs especally creative writing. But, of course, I'd have another major with it.
Hey, everyone. I'm trying to apply for a BFA to study Creative Writing (at the Vancouver campus), but on the application it says I need to select a specialty and Creative Writing isn't listed. What gives?

I'm in grade 11 and although it would seem I still have a year and a half to worry about all of this, I'm afraid anxiety has already claimed me. My parents are on me to try early admittance to some universities/colleges and because i'm going into journalism, as well as wanting to take courses in cultural, religious and sociology studies, i'm not fretting about getting into harvard with my grades.
However, i'm not a suberb student with 98 percent averages. In fact, i've been enrolled in the french immersion program offered in my home town since i was in kindergarten. Because of this french program, which has had several negative effects on 70% of the kids i grew up with considering all our other courses are in english, my average this semester is a 79.5. The rest of my classes, English 20-1, Math 20-1 and Chemistry 20-1 are all above 80, but between 82 and 84%. In french i'm sitting on a 71%, which is pretty good since most of my class is failing with 40's.
My question is if i apply for early admittance, will they consider my french mark even if i plan on not taking french past this semester? And also, i'm continuously struggling with this suffocating fear that I'm not good enough. Should i bother? My parents keep saying to just do it, but I'm nervous. My studying time throughout all of highschool had to be divided between 5 team sports, tournament traveling and spending my spare time grocery shopping and running my sister around to her activities as well. I live a very busy and well rounded life, and i now am very good at adapting to any situations life can throw at me.
Also what schools would be good to apply to? I can't seem to choose any other than uofvic, and i'd like to go to school out of my home province (alberta) so any suggestions would be great. I really am grateful for anyone who has been able to struggle through this and is able to excuse any gramatical errors.
I want to go to school for writing, as I've always been interested in it and I know that I'm willing to take less money doing something I love, rather thanmoredoing something that bores me. However, I know that being an author, poet, etc. may not be the most stable of jobs. Does anyone know what jobs I could get in New York City or near the area (my top 2 colleges are withing 20 minutes of NYC) with a writing major?
