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.
I am an IB student currently in Grade 11. I have a Grade 11 average of 95% right now. This includes difficult courses like SL Physics, SL French and HL Chem. I got a 100% on my grade 12 math credit.
My goal is to become a lawyer in Canada, but I'm open to considering the states. But I'm not applying to the states for my undergrad because I simply don't think it's worth the tuition if I already have my mind on law school. I am extremely involved in extracurriculars, I do almost everything.
I want to apply to Queens Commerce and am interested in their six-year program, Commerce (3 years) and JD (3 years). I am also strongly considering iBBA at Schulich. Nonetheless, the best case scenario for me would be to do my undergrad at Queen's and then get into a top-tier law school in the states and settle there. Second best case scenario would be to get into a Canadian law school such as Osgoode or U of T. Worst case scenario, I would pursue my CA/CPA designation, perhaps through the Graduate Diploma in Accounting at Queens (as an extension of Commerce).
Not sure what the best undergrad is for me, with the goal of law school. Here's what I'm searching for in my undergrad experience: solid GPA something above 92% and enough time for extracurriculars (to build my CV).
There is one more aspect, my LSAT score, which might be the same matter which school I go to. But I would like some extra time to work on that if the summer gets busy with an internship (hopefully paid).
Please help me out! What's the best uni and program for my undergrad?
So i was just wondering, is it possible to change programs once i get accepted into uni? I applied to ottawa, york, toronto, queens for either political science and a Juris doctor program. Im afraid i will hate law even though i find it interesting.
