Tips on frosh week?
So I'm an introvert and not many people I know are going to the university I'm going to, I tried making friends online on my schools Facebook group and then I found out that my school which is York University does frosh in a way where everyone is kind of separated so your frosh depends on the college you're affiliated with. All the friends I've made are associated with different colleges so I won't see them at frosh since they're not in my college. So basically I'm asking how to make friends in frosh when you don't know anybody and you're introverted and pretty shy. I didn't want to go to frosh but a friend of mine said she made her best friends at her frosh, and since she's a commuter she doesn't live on res (same thing as me) so I'm mostly going to frosh to meet new people but I don't wanna waste 110 or more dollars on frosh if I don't end up liking it anyways please help with some tips and what are some examples of activities that would be at frosh? (Also I tagged other schools so that i can get a feel of what frosh really is)

Did I mess up my chances of getting into Laurier BBA next year?
I took BAT4M (Accounting) in grade 11, and only managed to get an 81% which will bring down my average if it is included in my top 6. I'm taking 6 U/M courses next year, so I'm hoping to bump that 81% off my application. 

The thing that worries me is when you apply with first semester midterms, and the university looks at grade 11 marks and completed grade 12 courses. I got an 84 in advanced functions, and an 85 in English. 

What I plan to do is to retake accounting in my first semester, so the universities I apply to won't incorporate the 81 I got in gr 12 accounting into my average, since I know I'll be able to obtain a higher mark if I repeat the course in first semester.

Co-op after graduation in summer before university?
Hey guys,

I'm taking co-op right now for SHSM before university, and my high school has withheld my OSSD, even though I've already fulfilled all of the OSSD requirements already. My co-op grades won't get uploaded to the OUAC, and my diploma status won't be updated until August 19th. I received a conditional offer, and met those requirements by the time I graduated. But since my diploma is being withheld, will the school revoke my offer before I get it? Can I upload a transcript proving I met the requirements of the OSSD (minus SHSM)?

Thanks.

Question about Con.ed
Hi, I'm graduating Cegep(English) in Quebec and considering to study Conc.Ed to be a French teacher in Canada. I've heard that Queen's, York, UT, UOttawa have good programs for it. My average is 85% but not so sure about which one to choose...

And so if I understand the system right, I study B.A in French studies and Conc.Ed at the same time for 5 years then after become qualified to teach French?

I'm not sure if I should do concurrent or consecutive Education. Any suggestion?

Osap Funding 75% less than estimated
Hi Yconic community,

I am looking for some help regarding the recent estimate i recently received from OSAP. About a month ago, I used OSAP estimate calculator to determine how much I could get. OSAP estimate calculator estimated approximately $12 000, which gave me the necessary money i needed to cover my expenses with about $2000 left over. The estimate I actually got was $3000 dollars, which actually puts me in serious trouble because my father contributed the maximum he could and I already included all my assets and the money I will earn in my application. Is there any noticeable reason my funding is so low? I've seen other people's funding's, who have much more than I do, get much higher funding than me. Somebody please help me figure this out.

For anyone asking how to get good marks in Grade 12...........
There's really no answer except to study hard. People who consistently get high marks didn't recite a magic spell to get 90+ marks nor have they sacrificed a virgin to the gods, they freaking studied hard. Sure, there may be tips that may help you, but it all boils down to good study habits. Don't procrastinate. Learn the material when it's taught. Do your homework. Don't go to sleep unless you KNOW you're prepared for an evaluation. If you're in Grade 11, don't tell yourself that your marks don't matter now so it's okay if you're gonna slack off. Your Grade 12 courses may or may not build up on Grade 11, but it's about building excellent work ethic. You also get to find what study techniques work for you. If you've figured out a routine for how you work best, you certainly wouldn't have a hard time adjusting for Grade 12. Never be afraid to ask your teachers for help, even it is for the stupidest questions. Sure, they might find you annoying, but that's their job-- to freaking teach you. You probably won't see them after high school, anyway.

Advanced Functions Grade 12
How hard is this course? I am planning to take it next year and I would like to get a head start this summer. I have the entire textbook. So, how difficult is it to learn this through the textbook. Mind you, math is definitely not my strong subject of choice and I'm also trying to learn this from a deficit... bare in mind. (also, I'm from Ontario, I believe the textbook and the curriculum associated is standard with every other)

- OSAP
- internships and co-op opportunities + job search + how I got hired in the government 
- basically any other questions you might have 

Hope you're all excited about the potential of attending Ryerson! Ask me anything!

Switching Laurier res?
Has anyone ever successfully been able to switch residences after being assigned one? I got Waterloo College Hall which I'm happy about & got put into the Business RLC which I asked for, but the problem is that my room is in the basement so it's basically underground. I'm claustrophobic and thinking about that makes me uneasy. I need to have proper windows and I need to be above ground. Would that be a legitimate enough excuse to get switched? Pls help

Will non day school courses show up on my transcript?
I am taking ENG4U in summer elearning with TCDSB. I am a TDSB student. I have a bad mark, and it is too late to drop the course. My exam is this Wednesday. My guidance counsellor said that students need to submit report cards for any courses taken outside TDSB if they want it to appear on my transcript? If I don't submit my report card, will the course not show up on my transcript? This is assuming that I myself do not want the course to show up. TCDSB said they will not send report cards to non-TCDSB schools, and it is the students responsibility to submit the report cards to the schools guidance department. However I gave my OEN number when signing up for the course, so will there be some record of me taking the course on OUAC?
