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!

I accidentally put that I was eligible for Quebec residency in my McGill application when I am not. I've already been accepted, but would it still affect me if I asked Admissions to correct my mistake?
I've already been offered admission for the program I want to go to, but I'm holding off until march break for the open house. I'm applying for residency after I accept my offer and I know it's a lottery system, but does the later you apply for residence affect your chances of getting your top choice??
So I have 150 community hours, grade 8 Valedictorian, Student council 3 years, Free the Children (charity) 3 years, badminton club 2 years, and Improv club 3 years. I am also student body vice-president this year. I have been in two school musicals as well as two large ones with the community.
Applied to Queen's, UBC (Number 1 Choice), UofToronto, UofGuelph, Laurier, UofWaterloo, Ryerson, McGill, and Western on the 5th of December.
Grade 11 Average: 93%
Grade 12 Semester 1 Grades:
I applied to Philosophy/Political Science depending on the school. (All bachelor of Arts)
What're my chances? Especially to Queen's and UBC? (OR ANYWHERE ELSE).
When I Iog onto join.utoronto it says that I have been admitted to the engineering program for 2016. If I go onto OUAC however, nothing is posted. Also, if I click on the link that takes me to the Online Studen Profile, it also says decision pending. What does this mean?
If you have any questions on the University of Waterloo's Conditional Admission to Pharmacy (CAP) program this year and are interested in applying, dont hesitate to ask them here! I'll try to answer them as best as I can!
For those of you who dont know what CAP is, it's basically a program designed for students who wish to pursue a field in pharmacy in the future. CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE HERE: https://uwaterloo.ca/pharmacy/future-students/conditional-admission-pharmacy-cap ALSO be sure to check out the FAQ section too because they usually cover a lot of your questions there.
NOTE: Applications will be available starting October 9, 2015
I am having a hard time deciding between which school would be better for Kinesiology: Queen's or McMaster. Can you please list some of the pros/cons of each program, and which one they think is better/more reputed (and why)? Thanks so much!
So I'm currently in grade 12 and I applied for Mcmaster's Life Science program, and I was just wondering if anyone's gotten an acceptance for this program yet? What average did you have if you did? I finished off semester one with a 92.5 percent, which is making me a little nervous. Is that going to be high enough for an acceptance this month or am I going to have to suffer through several months more of anxiety for the March round of acceptances? Thanks!
Hey guys! Just wanted to make a thread to see who has been admitted to a kinesiology program for fall 2016! If you've been admitted, could you please comment which university, when you applied, and your average! Thanks and good luck to everyone!
Idk if it's just me or not but Im actually having anxiety about grade 12 and idek how I am going to manage that important year
I actually think no university will accept me and I am actually hoping so much that I will do better next year because my mark right now is so low for my program at my dream school. (MCGILL DESAUTEL) -ughh so crazy.
So yeah. Comment below about your stress and anxiety if you are in grade 11, Class of 2017!
I live in Ontario but my family lives in Kindersley, which is almost four hours away from both Edmonton and Calgary, and about two from Saskatoon. I have applied to their neuroscience and psychology programs and am totally lost on which one to choose. I've never been to Calgary but from what I saw of Edmonton (in about 3 days) I didn't quite like it. But it sure is a lot more prestigious than the other two. However I am planning on going to med school in Calgary after my undergrad.
So I really need help choosing the undergrad university for starters. Any opinions regarding the residence, quality of education and the city itself would be appreciated.
So I'm from Alberta and I applied to Mcmasters and it says there's nothing on my to do list like all the other universities tell me what needs to be done. However, it does say it need my high school grades under my application status. So should I just mail it to them?
I have decided that I want to study economics or computer science when I go to university (hopefully UFT/UWO). I am taking the required courses for economics for gr 11&12 but only one computer science course in each grade. When I was choosing my courses in February, I was told that physics is not necessary for computer science. Since many of my gr12 friends are receiving their admissions, they're telling me that physics is required. I'm not at all good at chemistry and physics but am extremely good at math. Also, I have looked at university admission requirements for comp sci from Ryerson, UFT, Western and they all require either chem or physics. I am unsure what to do because I am positive that I will absolutely fail in both classes
Hi everyone! I am a grade 11 student in Ontario and my career choice and dream is to become a nurse practitioner, I didn't do too well in Chem 78% and Bio 73% (11 University) and now I'm really freaking out with reading all these posts. I know I have the ability to do better than the marks I got which sounds ludicrous but I just know. I'm taking all the science courses, advanced functions, data management and calc/vectors. My aunt who is a nurse practitioner and is still continuing her studies told me to take data management but i don't know if calc/vectos will benefit me. I also had university world issues in mind as well as kinesology. Do you guys think I should take a spare? I will be taking 12U English in summer school and I haven't decided if I should take a course in night school. I know these marks look really bad for nursing but I know I could get better marks. My top choices are UofT, Western and Queens. I'm in desperate need of help with getting my courses organized, if you guys have tips or anything it would be greatly appreciated because I am freaking out right now.
Hi, I'm a student applying for CS/SE. I'm wondering what my chances are for this program.
Average: ~98.5%, expecting to go up to 99.3%
AP Calculus BC: 100%
AP Advanced Functions: 100%
AP Physics C: 100%
AP Chemistry: 96% (Hard chem teacher T___T)
AP English: 97% (fucking English T___T)
AP Programming: 100%
The issue is that I have few EC's. I'm only President of my school's Programming Club, Student Council and Math Club. I won several national engineering competitions such as NASA International Competition, Intel Engineering Competition, International Hackathon sponsored by Google to compete, and Top-100 Internationally in competitions such as FB Hacker Cup & Google Code Jam.
Here are some contest scores:
Euclid 2015: 85/100
CCC Senior 2015: 62/75
CCC Senior 2014: 50/75
CCC Junior 2013: 75/75
Any chance? Everyone from my school applying has 99+ averages... Thanks
Hey I would love some advice on choosing between schools!!
Currently I am a grade 12 student and I live in Guelph ON. I want to go into the environmental field (Environmental Sciences, Ecology ect.) I have been looking mostly at University of Guelph and University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus. I have a fear of staying in Guelph for school because I am scared I will never leave, but on the other hand BC is very far from home. I would love any advice on living far from home, living in the same city that you grew up in, the universities, the programs. Really anything??? Thanks!
