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
Who wants to go into med school?

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!
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?
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.

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.

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!

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,

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?
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!
