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!

My joinid says that I've been admitted into the program and that they've sent a package containing the details. However, I haven't received an email confirmation. Has anyone who has been admitted gotten one?
With the second round of Laurier's admissions for the BBA coming up (mid February), I figured we could have a post to discuss, in an organized fashion, when people start getting accepted. If you get accepted, please post when you received your acceptance letter, what your top 5 grade 11 averages were, and what your first semester grade twelve marks were.
I want to transfer to UBC sauder from sfu arts and would really like some helpful tips!!! This thread is also for other people wanting to transfer. I'm want to get in for second year!! Thanks in advance!
Hi, I'm in grade 10 right now and we're choosing our grade 11 courses, but I'm so stressed on what to do. I've picked my core classes: English U, Functions U, Chemistry U, Physics U, Psychology U. But I really don't know if I should do co op, will it look good for universities? Or should I just take grade 12 world history and Spanish since I've taken Spanish in grade 9 (moved here from th states)?
I applied for Crim at U of T. My final grade 12 first sem grades were:
Business Leadership: 95
Peer Tutoring: 96
Challenge and Change: 96
My average between those four courses is a 94.75. I'm worried that I won't be accepted, even though my grades are fairly high. Can someone who's been accepted tell me their program, college ranking (if applicable), and final average. I applied to UC as my first choice, as well.
I took English, Advanced Functions and Calculus at a private school not because I needed the 90 but because I have legitimate diagnosed anxiety and in grade 11 I would get so anxious about tests that I would freeze and the result was not true to my knowledge of the unit. My math teacher did not understand how I did so well on the formatives (in the 90s) which he makes harder then the tests, and then on the tests 60s and 70s. He is the one who told me I should look into an IEP for test anxiety or something but when I learned about the process my parents did not want to pay for it. I paid for all my private school courses with money I made from my part-time job. I now have a smaller class size and extra time to write tests which is really helping me. The teachers are awesome and really care about your success! I know that in university I won't have this luxury but it is what it is. Will universities frown upon these marks? I have heard some take off 5% from your average. Is this true?
So I just got accepted to U of T based off of my grade 11 marks (87 average) and it says that the College I got into was University College. I put Trinity as my #1 and was really hoping to get into Trin. My semester 1 average is a 90, and I was wondering if either a) people have already been accepted into Trinity and b) if it's not to late to still get accepted into Trinity, if I already have an official offer from University College.
I'm in 11th grade and I'm thinking about my future. I genuinely feel that I have nothing going for me at the moment. My grades are atrocious and I feel like I might even fail a couple classes. I hope to pursue a career computer related, as computers are the only thing that I have known my whole life, but I am certain that my current grades will hold me back from reaching that field. I feel like grade 12 won't get too much better, unless I manage to find some massive motivation out of my ass that will drive me into improving my grades drastically. Without good grade 12 marks, I know university won't be an option, so I am really considering college where I can study, and then hopefully make the transition into Uni that way, but my parents got extremely mad and started lecturing me for even bringing it up. I'm confident that a decent university for computer science will not consider me with the grades I have, and college seems like the only option, but my parent's are too traditional to let me go that route. It's as if they don't understand that my bad grades are already jeopardizing my chances of going to Uni, so what am I supposed to do? Atleast I'm willing to give college a try, but they just refuse to let me. What do I do in this situation.
Ok I'm a grade 12 student this year, right now I have 25 credits doing 4 credits in day school I need that one credit to graduate. Usually our graduation would be in October but out of nowhere they push it to June. I was intended to do night school this semester but I have cold feet right now and I feel like I will fail it or do poorly. Right now I'm kinda stressed about my courses I'm taking grade 12 law with no grade 11 knowledge and I feel overwhelm in that and I also feel overwhelm in bussines and in grade 12 parenting. I feel like I'm adding to much to my plate if I just do these courses (I don't even want to do law that much) and have night school. My question here is if I do summer school then can I be able to graduate on time before September 2016? I don't care I can't go to commenment in June I care about graduating and being able to go to college or University. Has anyone dealt with this before and what did you do?
Got accepted to both Waterloo Mechatronics and Western Engineering with AEO and now I'm applying for the National Scholarships at Western. I'd like to hear anyone's thoughts on this: If I get one of the National Scholarships (30k and up value) would id be foolish not to go to Western? Without the scholarship, I'll probably go to Waterloo and try to get my MBA at Ivey after I graduate and work
