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 am a 3rd year mechanical engineering student and my dream is to do my masters at one of canadas top universities. I would like to study at either uoft, ubc or mcgill. What would my GPA need to be in order for me to have a good shot for being admitted. Thank you
I'm here to answer any questions you have about Guelph or even anything in general. I'm a third year at the University of Guelph, Majoring in Biomedical Science with a minor in Neuroscience. I'm also looking into switching into Brain & Cognition as a major at Guelph. I'm actively involved in extra curriculars at the university and in the city of Guelph so I know a lot about the clubs on campus (I actually manage some!). I'm looking into going into Medical School in the future as well as obtaining a Masters in a Psychological/Neuroscience area. I'm an out of province student and I also receive financial assistance so you can ask me about almost anything. I'm familiar with other universities as well, including McMaster, Queens, and UBC and I can tell you why I chose Guelph over the other universities.
I've been accepted into both Queens and U of T St. George for BA, and I'm not sure which one would be right for me. I got into St. Mike's, which I've heard has a good community and that's kind of my major issue with U of T. I've also heard that Queens has an awesome overall community. I'm kind of leaning towards Queens, but once I graduate does a Queens diploma hold as much weight as a U of T diploma?
I'll ultimately go to the one that best fits me obviously, but is there a big difference?
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.
Can we make a thread to attempt to keep up with which Ontario schools have begun sending offers of admission? This is what I propose: If a school you know of has begun sending offers, check the comments. If you do not see the school yet, make a new comment. If you would like to post about your acceptance (average, timing, program) reply to the school's comment directly. For organization's sake. I'll start by putting the few I've seen in comments.
I'm a current 3rd year student at Ryerson, majoring in professional communications and minoring in law and marketing. Aside from holding 2 internships over the last 3 years, I work as a mentor for first year students and in student recruitment for my program faculty.
I can answer questions about:
- all program requirements and acceptances
- campus life
- internships and co-op opportunities
- basically any other questions you might have
Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! AMA!
I'm in gr.11 and I'm stressing about what programs I want to apply to next year. I think I've been thinking more about what my dream school is than the programs I want to take. Mcgill and U of T are my top choice. Torn between Nursing or maybe law in the future. I like history, chemistry and bio. But I struggle to get a 76% is math. Is nursing a good idea if I don't excel in math. I need to figure out what I want to do with my life by next year. My average this semester was a 89% this semester which I feel is super low compared to everyone else's, Do I even have a chance? Help!!!!!!
So i am in grade 11 right now, and I want to apply to health science for my undergrad degree.
So far I got
Gym 86 ( i know doesn't count)
This is first semester and its realllllly bad tbh
So i am planning on going to summer school for chem to get a 90+ because I really want to get a early acceptance and I need to also go cause I need a min average of 70 for the pre-requisites. But do universities look at repeated grade 11 courses?????? I'm planning to apply to (waterloo, laurier, UFT, etc.. Also I'm planning to hit all 90 this semester for Bio Math Comp Eng and Accounting.
Laurier BBA (no answer yet) Brock BBA (no answer yet)
I first choice is Laurier but does anybody know if they take people with high 80s into their BBA program? If I get into Laurier, I'll probably go there but if I don't get that, out of Ryu and Brock, which is better?
I applied to a lot of universities, including Queen's. I ranked Queen's as #10 out of 12 programs. I heard you have to rank Queen's in your top 3 to even be considered, is this true? What are my chances?
I'm in a linear school system and I self reported my term 1 mark to SFU, but it's been two weeks and I haven't receive any offer. Now I am starting to worry about my marks, because I think my average is around the borderline.
PreCalculus 93 ( probably aced my midterm so my mark will go up)
I applied for UBC science and arts, as well as SFU computing science and siat. Term 2 is over yet so my average might go up a bit because of my math midterm. My average right now is between 88 to 90. I think I don't have any chance for ubc science now, but what about SFU computer science or UBC arts? The average admission for SFU is not precise on their website so I wasn't sure.
