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 know most people in BC's first choice is UBC, but has anyone heard back from SFU after they self reported their marks? I haven't heard back yet and I reported on January 4th, the first day it was open.
On Jan 5th, u of t st. george received my application and sent me the confirmation email. After this, u of t is remaining silent because they didn't send me any requests regarding documents in my student centre. Until now, I only have my top3 marks: Biology 4U: 93, Calculus 4U: 93, Advanced Functions 4U: 97. The remaining 3 courses are: Chem 4U, Eng 4U and Business Leadership 4M.
In addition, my grade 11 marks are extremely bad because of not studying. Biology 3U: 78, Functions 3U: 62, Eng 3U; 75, Chem 3U: 70. And I learnt everything from grade 10 to 12 in one public school so that I didn't change the public school to private school for boosting marks. I'm applying for life science -- human biology.
Last but not least, my questions are why I haven't received the offer yet and are bad marks in grade 11 affecting the application? I'm pretty sure the top3 marks have reached the admission grade range.
I am currently in grade 12 and i have applied to 5 Programs
1) Waterloo AFM
2) Western BMOS (not AEO)
3) McMaster Business
4) Queens Commerce
5) UTM Commerce
I am very conflicted with whether or not I have a chance at getting into university. I am in my 2nd semester and my top 6 so far are:
1) ENG4U1 - 80%
2) MCV4UA - 87%
3) MDM4U1 - 91%
4) NDW4M1 - 96%
5) CPW4UB - 89%
6) BOH4MB/BBB4MB - 87%
7) MHF4UA - 78% (Waterloo and UTM want this but others don't)
I am taking Law, Economics, and French and hope to get a 90 in one of them to put into my top 6.
My extra curriculars are pretty weak though, I've played on the Junior and Senior Basketball Teams, was in DECA and FBLA, have a YouTube channel with over 600,000 total views (maybe they'll be impressed), and volunteered at an Arabic school and the campaigns for 2 Liberal candidates, and worked as a Trainee for an Accounting firm (accidentally forgot to put it on my Waterloo application, idk how).
I also will be getting the French, Business, and IB (for Economics) Certificates but do they look at them?
I just wanted to get some insider knowledge on whether it is possible to get into these University programs.
So I know this has been asked a million times but programs have maybe changed, so i'll try again. Is UofT or York's Kin program better, especially for someone who wants to go into either Physio or something else in healthcare?
I've heard that York's program is monstrous and parasitic and on the other hand that UofT's isn't very science based and that you're taking glorified high school gym classes. I've also heard that it's only good if you want to become a gym teacher or go into Physical Education.
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 just recently learned about Universities (in Canada) reserving seats for residents of their province for med school...This whole time I really wanted to go to McGill but what if I'm a BC resident?? There's only like 11 spots are there...? And also what happens if I'm a BC resident, go to McGill but do NOT become a resident, then apply to Ontario med schools? I heard from my family doctor that it's really hard that way, but I read online that Ontario schools don't have reserved seats so why would it matter? I'm so worried about where I choose to go for undergrad...
Ignoring all rules, I would have liked to go to: 1) McGill 2) Queens 3) Toronto 4) UBC.
I am in Grade 11 and am doing Advanced Functions (MHF4U) this semester as part of the school's AP Math program. I completed Functions with a 96% (I didn't find it difficult) and hope to achieve around the same in AF. I have registered to take AP Calc (AB) next year, which by the way is a full-year course. I'm not sure what to expect of it. I know it's not going to be easy, but I got through Functions without much difficulty (and I have been told by many that it's the hardest math), so for anyone in Ontario or even Canada who has done it, how difficult is it and what should I expect from the course/exam etc?
I do not have a 92 average as of now, however I am aiming for that.
If UofT reviews my application and I do not stand at an average of 92, will they come back to review my average (midterm marks) to see if I'm eligible for that scholarship still?
I go to a semestered school, so I only earned 3 credits so far, but I did earn a credit for the one required course needed to get into the program I want.
Also, OUAC emailed me today stating that they've sent in my marks to the universities I've applied to. How long may it take for UofT to get to my application? Because right now, the status says pending review.
