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 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.
I'm really beginning to stress out about money to go to postgrad, my sister did a science undergrad at UofT and is in nursing now and shes 55k in debt... My average is alright, I have a 94% average in the first semester. I want to pursue science. I've volunteered by singing at cultural events and I go to a Buddhist temple with my family and I was in competitive swimming as kid and now I do Fitness Swimmer. I tried volunteering at a nursing home where my parents work but I gave that up because I can't stand "dirty" jobs (I had a job at Tims for 6 months before I quit). I don't know. I'm so confused on what to pursue in life. My school is kind of bad, I was in IB school before but now I'm at the local Catholic school and there is no extracurriculars that meet my interest. At school there is a fishing club etc but no math or science club. Does anyone have any tips for extracurriculars? I don't really have that many interests besides science, reading and watching movies.
It's course selection month and I am unsure if I would like to take it again in gr 11. I'm currently taking French right now but I'm not exactly sure if I like it since there is a lot of assignments and I am taking some science courses next year
I took Pre-Calculus 12 twice. The first attempt I got 89% for my final mark, so I decided to take it again in summer school. For the second attempt, my final mark has improved to 96% higher than my first attempt. Plus on the BC Ministry unofficial transcript, they put 96% as my final mark for Pre-Calculus 12. So can I use my higher second attempt grade to self-report for PreCal 12 for SFU and UBC? Thank you
Hey guys! I just submitted my application for SHAD 2016, so I'm wondering who else already submitted? :) I don't know if there's already a SHAD 2016 thread so I just decided to start one. If there already is one, can someone direct me there?
Hi guys! long story short, I've applied to queen's and their admission bursary few weeks ago, but today I've found out a small writing mistake on the admission bursary application essay, would that affect my chance getting accepted to the actual program?
I didn't realize I don't have group 1 credit until gr12 so I have to take world issue but I really don't like the course and it's boring :( I might end up with a 50% so I'm wondering if the university will care if they see a 50 on my report card
Hey guys, I applied to both college and university. I already got college acceptance offers and they expire on May 1st. What if I don't get a university offer by then? Should I wait it out, or accept the college offer?
I know that U of A is a better school, but I think that the campus and city of Calgary are nicer. (I live in Calgary). U of C however, is pretty far from my house so I wouldn't really want to waste two hours commuting to and from school. I've heard that U of A has better funding, better research opportunities, better profs, and smaller class sizes. Staying in Calgary would be a lot cheaper though, and it doesn't really matter what school you went to for undergrad. I could always take bio sci in Calgary and then go to U of A later for pharmacy for example. But I do like pharmacology more than biological sciences.I've also heard that U of C's BSc programs aren't super great (buildings and equipment). Also, I would rather be in an honours program than a general science program. I've considered switching from bio sci to biochem (because it's honours), but again, I like pharmacology more than biochem. However, I'm still not 100% sure I want to live in Edmonton.
Is anyone taking pharmacology at U of A? Is it a good program? Do you like living in Edmonton and going to U of A?
