Describe your personality- Rebel, Nerd, Geek, Gangster, Popular, Socially Awkward, etc.
I'm very curious to know about the people who frequent yconic. Since this is anonymous, you don't need to worry about being judged or assessed. Be honest and in general terms describe yourself. Maybe mention your ethnicity/ race as well for context and what field you're going into. If you think your personality developed based on the city or area you live in, mention that as well.

Wolf of Wall Street vs. Wall Street - Which is better?
I am talking about the original Wall Street not the one with Shia Lebeouf. Personally I enjoyed Wolf of Wall Street more, that being said they are both great movies.

Getting Into Engineering
Hello Guys
I am currently going into grade 12. I need some guidelines and benchmarks to get into engineering in UofT or University of Waterloo. What marks should I aim for such as for AP calculus and advanced functions and other sciences. 
Anybody here watch DOSEofFOUSEY for motivation or to disconnect from the real world? We can have a interesting discussion if anyone's interested...
Ontario Universities vs Rest of Canada
I have noticed that many of the people on this forum only apply/ go to Ontario school, and many do not consider schools in Alberta or bc. Could someone explain to me why less people consider schools outside of Ontario. schools like uofa and ubc are really good for programs in engineering and business. So why is that.....
Science or engineering?
I am a grade 12 student and I have a passion for all the sciences. For the longest time I wanted to be a doctor but recently I have switched to engineering. I like to tell myself that I switched because I want to be an engineer over becoming a doctor but I feel the real reason is because of the job prospects. I know that a science degree is useless unless you are able to get a very high GPA (around 3.9) to get into medical school. While I am a good high 80s student in high school I dont think I can get grades that high especially in university. Is it worth it to take this risk that I may or may get the GPA I need and end up with a useless science degree or should I just go with engineering.         Thank you in advance for any advice.
