Political Science Major- which uni?
After summer, I'm going into grade 12 and I am very stressed as to which university (in Ontario preferably) would provide me with the best undergrad education in order to pursue law. Before naming a bunch of uni's I was hoping that you guys could help me out with what you know, maybe from experience or research, because oh boy have I been researching, and am still quite lost.
Survey of Yconic
I'm interested in the ages, major, background and ethnic make up of this website.
1. How old are you guys?

2. What is your major and minor if you have one.

3. Ethnic background?

4. Where are you from?
If you do not have above average intelligence don't go to University
This will probably get a lot of hate but I think you guys should know this. A lot of asian families believe that if you don't have a degree in business, science or engineering you are a failure but this is not true. I have finished my engineering degree at UofT over a year ago and still have not found a job or at least something sustainable. My bestfriend since middle school went into the trades and learned how to become a plumber. He made money while learning and the company he did his apprenticeship with hired him and he is making over 50k a year in his second year of working. Someone else who I connected with on facebook who I went to highschool with years ago never went to uni and he makes 70k a year repairing elevators.

I'm not saying don't go to university but  think first, if I was not a child of immigrants who worked hard to get to Canada I would have most likely would not go to uni and be better off than I am right now.

Admission Questions? Ask a Current UBC Student!
Hi guys,

I always remember finding this forum really useful back when I was applying for universities in 2012, and I'd like to offer you the opportunity to actually get some hard knowledge about admissions rather than just hearsay. Though I'm in Sauder, I can answer any questions regarding direct entry to all UBC programs, Sauder transfer applications, and general university stuff.

You should all also take a look at the holy grail of UBC admissions, specifically table 18 where all admission averages for all programs for entry in 2013W are outlined.

Hope to see you all at UBC in September!
Who wants to go into med school?
And what are you doing to reach your goal (Ecs, undergrad choice, research etc...)?? And what are your alternative careers if you decided you didn't want to go to med school anymore or didnt get accepted?
Careers in Math and/or Science
I want to pursue a career in math or, math and science as those are two of my best subjects and the ones i enjoy the most. What are some jobs that are in that field of interest and have a pretty decent salary, like 65,000+ starting, and which can go up to 100,000+ as you gain more experience? I know like jobs in math and science are basically all engineering programs but i have no idea what are some which directly focus on math and have decent pay. Thanks
Laurier BBA without co op
Hello, I am going in to first year at Laurier as a BBA student and all I hear is co op co op and co op. I was wondering, is co op what makes BBA and without co op is being a BBA student almost useless? Are BBA students still really successful without it? 

Thanks for your time,

This is just a thread for applicants entering HBA1 in the fall at Ivey Business School (people actually starting HBA1, not high school applicants for AEO), feel free to share when you got your acceptance!

Chances of getting csc 108h1 . University of Toronto.
I applied and got in physical and mathematical sciences intending to specialise in mathematical application in economics and finance. But now I am considering a major in computer sciences. The problem is I do not have priority over an computer science course and I won't be able to register for this course until 7 August. I wanted to ask what chances do I have to getting into this course and how can I improve them.

Also, assuming if I do get into this course, how long does this priority thing is going to bother me? For the duration of my degree or for the first semester only?

Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks!
Choosing courses
Is there a difference between 100A and 100B courses 

Is it too late to get involved with leadership EC's?
Hi, I'll be going into grade 12 this year and I want to do business at schools likes Queen's, Western, Schulich, Laurier etc. I have pretty good marks and my EC's are ok  but i doubt they're good enough. Here's a list:

-Relay for Life participant
-volunteered as a performer for a theater group; a group of about 30 of us performed shows to citizens of Toronto. We helped them "expand their horizons" in terms of  visiting forgotten restaurants and landmarks (weird af i know, but it was fun) I also recruited a few members
-i had a job as a sales rep at Future Shop before it closed 
-currently have a stock associate/cashier job at Food Basics
-volunteering for the Pan American games this summer

I know its all about how well you sell your EC's but I doubt I'd stand a chance with virtually no leadership experience. What kind of activities can I get involved in for my last year of high school to help fill the void?
UTSC - Specialist/Major/Minor
I will start UTSC - Life Sciences this September. I'm a transfer student so I will have enough credits to choose my POSt. I'm trying to decide which one to pursue out of these options. I'm planning to apply to med schools later on, but being realistic, if I cannot make it into a med school, I would like to have an education which would help me to find a decent job in a health-related sector. Does anyone know which of these combinations will give me more options in professional life? Any feedback/comments on these subject POSts? Thanks!

Major in Human Biology + Major in Health Studies

WHAT IS WITH THE - Oops! You've hit your posting limit. Wait a few minutes, and then try again.
Seriously tired of getting this message and having to wait 5 minutes between posts.

"Oops! You've hit your posting limit. Wait a few minutes, and then try again."

Just another reason as to why this site sucks compared to the old studentawards.

Yeesh, super frustrating!
Why are professionals contributing to the Yconic community?
I apologize if this is a dumb question, but why are so many graduate/professional school students and professionals (i.e. doctors) posting on this forum and answering my questions? Not that I'm complaining! I'm just curious. Are they being compensated in any way?
MAT223 Linear Algebra?

I am a high school student and next year (in gr 12) I will be taking the MAT223 Linear Algebra course. Is there anyone who has taken the course and has some experience?

How much proofs does the course require? I'm saying this because in high school we don't learn anything about proofs. So if there is any in the course, I may have to learn it by myself.

Also how hard is the course? What is the average of the class?
AMA Request: Summer Co-op/Intern at a Big 4 Accounting Firm
I and many others on this forum are pursuing a CPA designation and would probably want to work at a big 4 firm. I think it would be beneficial if someone who is currently working there this summer or recently worked there as a student could answer some questions for us.

Bio (11)
Chem (11)
English (11)
Econ (12)
Business Leadership
Philosophy (11)
Physics (11)
Accounting (11) - taking this in summer

What marks do i need in each course do i need to be considered for early acceptance?

Thanks in advance!!
