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.

Hi! I am currently in Grade 12 and I just got my 1st semester marks and here they are :
Photography : 96
Advanced Functions : 91
and English : 73........ (sigh)
Well as you see I am really worried that I won't be able to get into Rotman Commerce (1st choice) because of my English ,since they want at low to mid 80s... Second semester is easy for me I have Challenge and Change, Calc&Vec, , and Computer Eng. My average can still be around 89~ 90 ,which I am going to try really hard. So do I still have a chance for U of T Rotman Commerce?? How about Laurier? Do I have a chance for any of these two?
Is it possible to repeat two courses and get into the business programs I've applied to (schulich, Ivey, queens, rotmans, Laurier).
I have to repeat my advanced mark as I took it in grade 11 and got 87, and my English mark this year is an 87 as well. Although my other courses are weighing out my average some what, I don't think I'll get in to these schools with the 90% average I have, probably need atleast 93+.
Any ideas if I can repeat two courses? I know rotmans doesn't look at repeats so that might be out of the question entirely.
Hey guys, I wondering about my chances of getting into Waterloo AFM and Laurier BBA with a 89% on Advanced Functions but 90-92% on Calc, the rest of my marks are low 90s. But my predicted english mark is about 80-83%.
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!
Early admission requirements state that you need an average of 90% or higher in grade 11, and that "Students admitted under this pathway must meet the final admission requirements for the program to which they are offered admission."
I take this to mean that in grade 12 you do not have to maintain an average above 90%, and just need to meet the Standard Admission averages? (i.e. Mid 80s: Applied and Environmental Geology, and Geophysics;
High 80s: Biological Sciences) Can anybody confirm?
I am in grade 12 right now and I plan on going to laurier to do my BBA next year. I just want to know how hard the program is starting from first year, not in terms of coop or anything but just maintaining the average to stay in the program (70 in business courses, 60 in others). I took easy courses in high school but I have the ability to study a lot when needed and that is why I am wondering if I will be able to maintain the average.
I am applying to Waterloo for engineering and am currently in my second semester in grade 12. I currently have physics, computer science and calc/vec and want to drop my last course which is accounting. Does Waterloo prefer students with full course loads or is it okay for me to drop my accounting course and just take a spare? Also, does U of T look for a full course load when accepting students to Engineering Science?
I have gotten accepted to York's Biochemistry program and Biomedical Science program. I want to end up in a medical school, so at first, I thought of doing Biomedical Science because it is an easier major than Biochemistry which allows me to achieve a higher GPA. After long thought, I decided that I should so Biochemistry instead because I am interested in it and it has a better job scope just in case I do not end up getting accepted to medical school. So, my question to everyone willing to help me is, How is Biochemistry at York University. I want to know about the difficulty level, course load, professors, and whether you can manage other extra-curricular with the major? I am an average Grade 12 student who gets an average of 85%.
I am planning on getting my bachelor of arts in Psychology, and then I want to go further and get my masters to become a psychologist. But before I do that I was wondering what job opportunities there are with only a bachelors in psych??
When I Iog onto join.utoronto it says that I have been admitted to the engineering program for 2016. If I go onto OUAC however, nothing is posted. Also, if I click on the link that takes me to the Online Studen Profile, it also says decision pending. What does this mean?
